September Adventure 2020

Very enjoyable visit to Dunnet Bay. Booking in was very easy by telephone and everything was carefully explained by the pleasant lady warden. Beach is very beautiful and well worth a long walk. Cycling on back quiet roads really good and all vehicles passing were giving plenty room. The Dunnet Forest Walk is well worth a visit to see the log cabin and sculptures. Only downside was members allowing their dogs to use the tent area as a toilet - very inconsiderate and unpleasant for those who had to pitch their tents there.

Fantastic

What a great site our first stay here and will not be our last Wardens are great we were going to arrive a little bit late but a very nice call from the warden just to make sure we were ok and going to arrive and to let us know not worry about being late which I thought was a really nice touch We arrived and the welcome was second to none nothing was to much trouble easy to check in and all explained in a very polite and Professional manner We settled in and was not disappointed in the morning the views were fantastic and the site was spotless we asked the warden if we could extend our stay and with a flick of her fingers it was done so helpful I would recommend this site to anyone great for family’s and couples alike can not praise the wardens for there hard work to give everyone a great holiday nothing to much trouble for them they take it all in there stride A big thank you to you both

Good to be back

As we have done many times before, had stopover on the way to Orkney and again week later on return. Site staff very welcoming and easy check in process. Given the covid issues we happily used own facilities so cannot comment on toilets/showers, although appeared to be good system for access. Happy to adhere to new rules etc for pleasure of getting back to sites.

A great holiday in new times

My wife and I, plus our convalescing dog had another great holiday at this wonderful site. Firstly a big thank you to the wardens who religiously did their best, working hard to a strict risk assessment which allowed us all to enjoy the site and facilities. Yes, there were the odd queues for the toilet block. Have we really become so intolerant to complain about a distancing queue, in these extreme times. We are a country with a queueing culture. Without this discipline the site would not have opened. It was kept very clean and tidy with procedures at each service point and a very well delivered reception and payment arrangement. The access to the beach was not a problem, all you had to do was walk out of the site entrance!! The site procedures allowed control over visitors wanting to use the toilets and we found it a very easy and efficient process. This area of Scotland has lots to see and do. The local hotel has a very COVID safe process for meals and they were excellent. Thank you for your hard work wardens and well done Caravan and Motorhome Club.

fantastic site

We pitched along by the road, which was fairly noisy during the day but not a problem at night. The pitch we were on was very flat which really wasn't the case on two other pitches that we tried first, having older dogs once we had levelled up using the chocks the step into the mh was far too high for me let alone our two oldies. Fantastic location suited us perfectly for access to the beach via a gentle slope onto the beach or you could use the steps. Beach is immaculate, had a fantastic view out of our window towards the beach (car park end) We didn't use any of the facilities preferring to use our own so can't comment on them. Will be visiting again asap.

Fabulous area , COVID 19 arrangements spoiled stay

Stunning site ,great pitches , friendly staff but unfortunately COVID 19 toilet/ shower arrangements spoilt stay. Only 2 facilities and one family able to use at any one time which meant there was a queue at most times.Therefore ended up having a shower around midnight.Also in the mornings which was queued I actually walked out of the site and used the rank public toilets adjacent for the beach users. Cannot see why there could not be 2 toilets open in each of the male and female blocks. Having said all that if you have onboard facilities it would be an excellent stay

Brilliant Coronavirus check in at a favourite site

Coronavirus points The check in process at the site is brilliant with no contact or requirement to go inside. Brilliantly done. There were cues for the toilets and showers but they are understandably restricted. I never witnessed any non members using the toilets, they used the car park toilets as many members were doing, non members would not have bands for a start. What really baffled me is why so many people are reluctant to use their own facilities, in two weeks our family showered every day in the van and used the van toilet without exception. There is a global pandemic do what you can to look after your own health. Site related points The site is in tip top condition and the location is just superb for anyone who wants to have a relaxing beach holiday. My family had a lovely break here for probably the fifth or sixth year in a row. We love it. It can be a busy site for wardens as they have a tremendous amount of turnover which has increased in recent years due to NC500 success which also brings less experienced campers but the wardens keep things working really well. There are loads of lovely places to visit and brilliant drives to be had. Orkney is not far away but would definitely recommend using the CL network and spending a week their, there is so much to do. See you next year :-)

Really disappointing stay

Recent stay at dunnet head was really disappointing. Great site, with nearby access to the beach. But due to covid 19 the site access to the beach was closed off, apparently to deter unwanted guests from the beach! However these unwanted guests still came onto site from the public carpark outside to use toilet and perhaps shower facilities after surfing and visiting the beach! These facilities were already not running to full capacity due to the covid pandemic and only allowed one person in at a time, meaning one morning waiting 45 minutes in a line for a shower. Meanwhile inconsiderate people used the facilities for an incredible amount of time, knowing that people were waiting. To top it all, two very ‘industrious’ wardens, especially the gentleman warden who marched around being very ‘stand offish’ with his face covering dangling around his neck yelling at the people in the shower queue that they weren’t social distancing! I have visited another 4 sites within the clubs network and privately owned sites since lock down eased and I have not experienced anything like this. Unfortunately a site to avoid, Definitely until the pandemic eases, which I don’t see happening anytime soon.

Toilet and shower nightmare

We stayed here for 7 nights after staying last year and loved it. However, this year we were really disappointed. Understandably measures had to be put in for Covid19 but these were ridiculous. I'm not a fan of unisex toilets but when you have to use a toilet that is swimming in urine over the floor and toilet and not been flushed then I am not happy. The facilities are cleaned twice a day but to only have 1 toilet and 1 shower in each block open is not great. Queues most of the day to use them. It is a shame as there are obviously some people who don't care about others. People were also coming from the adjacent car park to use the facilities as the public toilets there were blocked due to someone putting facemasks down them. The campsite is in a beautiful setting and it would have helped to have more toilets/showers open and just limit to two people and keep them male and female.

Our first time in a motorhome

Our first stop for our North coast 500 couldn't have been better. Friendly service, explained to us "novices" what was needed, etc., and an absolutely lovely view from our pitch. Quite, well enough away from it all to enjoy the nature, and THAT BEACH!!! Clean, efficient services, hookup, etc. what more could you want? Would highly recommend it again.
