Why stay here ...

A good choice for those who enjoy solitary tranquillity, at Dunnet Bay Club Site you can admire the stunning views over clean washed sands to lovely Dunnet Head, the northernmost point of the British mainland. Located in Dunnet, Thurso, the caravan park is in an area of vast natural beauty - it's a perfect location to unwind from the bustle of day to day life.

Dunnet Bay Club Site is ideal for walking expeditions and offers great nearby dog walking too. If you climb Dunnet Head you will be treated to magnificent views over the Pentland Firth to Orkney and a great part of the north coast to Ben Loyal and Ben Hope. To take in local restaurants as well as some retail therapy, a day trip over to Orkney from John O'Groats or Scrabster won't disappoint, in fact you can island-hop the string of islands by both boat and coach. If you're a keen birdwatcher, you can take a ferry trip around the Stacks of Duncansby to see a wealth of seabird life. Anglers are spoilt for choice with sea fishing by boat from Scrabster, fishing from the beach or freshwater fishing nearby. Sites of historic interest include the majestic Castle Mey and Mary Anne's Cottage, a museum detailing crofting life.

Lovely little site

This is a nice little Caravan Club site situated alongside a superb beach ! The site toilet and shower facilities are up to the usual good club site standards and the wardens are very friendly. The site has all grass pitches and not many are level however although we had a lot of rain the grass was nice and firm ! The only gripe would be that the main Thurso to John O Groats road runs alongside the site and was quite noisy.

Another World!

A great site if you like peace and quiet. There is a road alongside the site, but it is not that busy. You can find a pitch sheltered behind the dunes or one with a fantastic view of the beach. There is a visitor centre at the site, well worth a visit. The nearby visitor centre at Castletown is also well worth the time. Fantastic site and location!

Great Stop off Point

We used this site whilst on the NC500, another lovely well kept site in a great location, albeit a little close to the main road. Gorgeous long sandy beach for walking the dogs along with superb views.

First Stay

We arrived at this site on the off-chance of a pitch and were greeted by very pleasant wardens. The site was not full and we were given the opportunity to pick our own pitch from the available ones which was a very nice touch. The site was very clean and tidy despite torrential rain a few days before we arrived and the warden advised us of the pitches that were still drying out. The site is very open to the wind but that is to be expected due to it's location. The beach is just a couple of minutes walk and is sand not stones. It would be nice to have level hard standings for motor homes but that aside it was a very pleasant overnight stay and we will certainly be back for a longer period.
