Why stay here ...

Sunnybrae is a recently re-opened half acre site situated just outside the pretty village of Findochty, commanding spectacular panoramic views over the Moray Firth and beyond (on a good day!) The site itself has 5 pitches (4 of which are hardstanding) all with new 16amp electric hookups. Drinking water tap and chemical waste disposal with rinsing tap are also provided for visitors. The site itself has a very gentle slope but the pitches are all reasonably flat.

Findochty is a small picturesque village with a scenic harbour mainly used for pleasure craft. It has a well stocked general store (0.5 mile) and a pub "The Admirals" (0.75 mile)which also provides takeaway meals as well as highly recommended lunchtime and evening meals.

The Moray coast has much to offer for a wide range of interests. Wildlife is particularly abundant with pine martens, kestrels, pheasants, roe deer and many other interesting animals and birds having been spotted from the CL site. Bottlenose dolphins are a major attraction on the Moray Firth and dolphin spotting expeditions on the "Gemini Explorer" can be taken from nearby Buckie (2 miles). For those a little less adventurous a good pair of binoculars is all that's required to catch sight of them from the comfort of your caravan. Other attractions include Strathlene Golf Club (1.25 miles), Findochty Beach (1 mile), stunning coastal walks and drives are popular in all weathers.

Many distilleries are based in the surrounding area and the world famous "Malt Whisky Trail" is always worth exploring. The Highland Games (Fochabers 9 miles) in late Spring is also a great experience and for those with an interest in the past,the area has plenty of historic castles and grand houses to seek out. For the younger visitor there is a range of activities to entertain. Go kart racing, ten pin bowling and pony trekking to name but a few.

Stargazing on a clear night is a sight to behold and The Northern Lights can sometimes make a rare incredible display.

Visitors to Sunnybrae will be guaranteed a warm welcome on arrival and we will endeavour to be of assistance throughout your stay if and when required.

Mike and Brenda look forward to seeing you.

Nice little CL

Stayed here for one night in early May '22. The owner made us very welcome & was informative. The pitches were a little on the small side but adequate. Enjoyed the walk down to the harbour.

Needs updting

Sunnybrae
Site is in a lovely location, beautiful views across out to sea. Sadly it needs updating. There are really only 4 pitches of decent size, 1 seems to be in the driveway, it’s very rutted in places, just needs so some maintenance because it wouldn’t be much fun in the rain. There is a bench apparently “ sunset view “ but sadly all covered in green mould with old dead trees and long grass, sadly not of any use to sit and enjoy a bbq and watch sunset. The noise from the small road which runs by is constant making it not relaxing to read, seems to be a rat run to the beach or the lower coast road. The brown waste area needs just tiding with a longer piece of hose to rinse around top of concrete disposal area. The owner was nice and the little book shed useful. Village was lovely. Such a shame don’t think we will return.

Great Find at FINDochty!

Sunnybrae
Having read of it in a club magazine touring review, enjoyed our stay with Mike & Brenda on this well-located site just a ten-minute walk from a small former fishing village. (Discovering I'd once lived on the same street as Mike in Leeds in the early 80's was an amazing coincidence!) A very warm and attentive welcome from Mike and an information hut with tourist leaflets and books to borrow. Great view across to the sea and sunset. The hard standing was rather stoney and uneven, to be honest, and the site a little compact. Very good access to the site from the minor road but it did mean there was a reasonable amount of local traffic. Able to walk the dog along the track and down to the village - good food at the Admiral. A bonus to have a good wifi signal - until somebody turned up in their campervan with a powerful router which cut across the signal - not the site's fault! Very handy for coastal trips, excellent value at £15 per night and would recommend.
