Why stay here ...

LOW 10% refundable deposit & FREE cancellations*

A good choice for those who enjoy solitary tranquillity, at Dunnet Bay Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Beautiful beach site

Dunnet Bay Club Campsite
Two minutes walk to the beautiful beach at dunnet bay. Site clean and well run. Ideal for walking and for pets. Walk in the woods just down The road from the site which is worth a visit.

Great one night stay

Dunnet Bay Club Campsite
Another club site we used during our tour of the Highlands and NC500. A friendly welcome and some great views. The pitch we had was a grass one but solid, which we were pleased with as it was a night of wind, rain and even a bit of hail. Good access to the beach which our dog enjoyed. It is always a pleasure to pitch on these club sites as they are of a high quality and the staff are always friendly and helpful. We only stayed for one night before continuing on with our tour so can only comment on our experience during this time.
