Finding this site was more than a little tricky, over shot the lane to the site as there wasn't a CC sign at the entrance and turning round via a farmers field isn't advised. When we arrived on site the vans already there were spaced out making it difficult to park up with a decent fire break space from the next van. No markers for pitches and the owner wasn't on site to assist. The area on the north coast has some stunning views with Dunnet Head and Dunscanby Head must see's. John O' Groats is a place to visit and forget, although the small harbour is pretty. Thurso we thought was a nice little place a bit run down but OK. at the time we visited a company of re-enactors were staging a Viking village scene in the main street. Wick, is a place that has lost it's way and is in need of a lot of TLC it was the worst place we visited on the whole three week tour. Pubs and eating places seem to be few and far between in this area.
was a bit tricky to find due to signs missing/stolen. new owner said he will be sorting that out other than that had a nice few night and would use this site again the next time we visit. plus there is wifi being installed this month so will be an added bonus.
This CL is hard standing, has all the basic requirements plus some recycling, a washing line, shower and dog walk. An ideal site for those looking for a short stay site on a tour of Scotland. John O'Groats was a huge disappointment, unless you enjoy all things commercial and run down, but the Stacks at Duncansby Bay more than made up for it - wow, nature at it's best. The Castle Mey is a must see place and be sure to take the road to the top of Dunnet Head, the true northern most point of main land Britain.
