I LOVE this site. It is just how I like campsites, friendly very relaxed, good views and lots of like minded people around from all over europe.

Yes the toilets are a bit tired but they are clean and to be frank because the rest of the site/area is great I don't really care.

The Faraid beach walk is lovely, lots and lots of white sand and dunes.

Popular site with restaurant next door, eider ducks on the beach below, great walking and full facilities to cater for Scotland whatever the weather. Rocked up midday and parked as per instructions, paying later when the office opened.

We're sure some rock up, fill up, empty out and move on. It's sad some just don't get the fact that it is not provided for free and the site is part of a community which needs their business. So if you're planning to go, please stay the night and pay your way.

Great trip we stayed a couple of nights and experienced a good wind and we were never quite sure if we would be pushed over the edge, all was well though and we survived the night. Site is very nice, if you want ehu and a front row pitch you should book ahead, other wise as others say just turn up.

Couldn't use pub as they don't allow dogs in during meal times.

Only downer we had was the lack of transport to the lighthouse on the Cape, one couple had been trying for 3 days to make the journet across, we decided we may make another trip as the scenery is awsome! Only scored down on facilities as they are just a bit tiered but had worse.

Maybe my opinion of this site is biased by the very good weather we experienced during our stay here, albeit a little blowy since the site is well positioned for access to the local beach and as such, it's also rather exposed to the elements and in particular, any resulting northerly winds.

The facilities were clean, well maintained and adequate for the size of the site and there was a Spar store within walking distance that would cater for most peoples needs including a self service pre-pay fuel station opposite with possibly the most expensive petrol in the UK at more than 10p per litre over the average.

Another member of our group dealt with payment for our stay and as such I cannot comment directly on the friendliness of the staff however, I'm sure he would have mentioned something if he'd had a negative experience, so I'll assume all was ok.

Well recommended motorcycle friendly site, particularly for anyone passing through on a more extensive tour of The Highlands.

We stayed for one night at Sango Sands after reading the reviews on this website and it did not disappoint! We live just north of Inverness and this was a quick weekend up on the North Coast for us.

There is a shop and fuel available nearby so if you forget anything or need to top up supplies it is easy to do so.

We had pre-booked for a hard standing site with electric hook up and our pitch number was displayed clearly on the reception door and our pitch was marked with our name. Just inside the site is an area for ‘servicing’ with fresh water (hose pipe provided, grey water disposal and waste disposal). There is plenty of room for the largest of motor homes to use these facilities. I filled up with fresh water on entering the site. I used the grey water disposal when we left and this is easy to use as well as you can park over the drain.

We were on pitch number 13, on the edge of the cliff, and the views were simply spectacular. There is no doubt that the journey up to the North Coast is well worth it for the location and setting of the site. The winding single track roads may explain the preponderance of motor homes on the site. Believe me it is well worth the effort.

The shower and toilet blocks are fairly old but are in good clean condition. The showers are easy to work and just need you to push the tap for a supply of nice hot water and if you need more time, just push the tap again. The toilets were also clean and tidy. There were numerous rubbish disposal/recycling sites dotted around.

We only spoke to a site warden one on his patrol around the site when he called for payment. He was cheerful and pleasant. I would definitely call the site friendly they provide great facilities for tent campers and you can even pitch for free during the winter (if you want electric hook up there is a charge and I believe that the toilets are open but the showers unheated I believe). This if a really nice and friendly touch. Also the site is not plastered with posters proclaiming the ‘rules’. You feel that you are trusted to get on with what you are there for – to relax and enjoy the views.

If you are staying at the site then a visit to Smoo Cave is a must and there are spectacular views around every corner.

We will definitely be back again for a longer stay and would highly recommend this site to others.

Well done Sango sands and thanks.

This site is in a spectacular location overlooking an award winning beach, with sea views to the north. Orkney can be spotted in the distance.

No booking is required - just turn up. The owner was friendly and welcoming. The site is spacious with a variety of areas to pitch. We overlooked one of the two beaches and had uninterrupted views out to sea. The site is exposed to the wind so that needs to be borne in mind when pitching.

Shower and toilet facilities were clean. There is a covered campers' cooking area with tables to sit at and eat. There are two large gas rings provided for cooking on, which amazingly were free of charge. That was a great bonus as the wind was blowing the heat away from our camp stove and making it difficult to cook outdoors. There is also a covered dishwashing area. For £7 per person per night I considered this site to be excellent value.

There is a Spar shop with cash machine just up the road and a petrol pump opposite, and also a small shop nearer to the campsite. The Tourist Information is just beside the site too and very handy for popping into with questions.

Smoo Cave, about a mile away, is a must. It's an enormous sea cave which you can wander into and look around or pay £4 to be taken into the inner caverns in a small boat.

There are various guided walks during the summer. We went on a walk through the dunes at Balnakeil beach to see the puffins which nest by the cliffs. The ranger told us a lot about the wild flowers, bird life and the history of the area.

A beautiful site in a beautiful area. We will be back!
