Wonderful site with access to lovely sandy beach. The site has views to die for a real discovery.

Staff very friendly, efficient and welcoming.

Facilities, toilets, showers, dish washing are clean, a bit basic though functional, but new ones are currently under construction.

Plenty of pitches and ECUs and you are free to pick your own.

Hotel next to site offers good value food, either in the restaurant or bar.

General store within a couple of minutes walking distance and another with post office and cash machine not much further up the hill as is a petrol station.

Tourist information centre next to the hotel and general store, again with helpful staff.

The Smoo Cave is spectacular and again within walking distance.

For the bucket list a boat and mini bus trip to Cape Wrath is an experience and sets off from a couple of miles up the road.

Sometimes a site just has a certain undefinable something that sets it apart and amidst strong competition this has my vote for number one on the NC500

Site is situated in Durness on a small cliff top with a lovely beach below. It can be a bit windy. Site was very busy in the middle of May. The north coast 500 seems to have added a lot of traffic. Cost 20 per night for 2 adults with electric hook up. Most pitches were level with a few exceptions. Staff were OK but to be fair were busy.

There are a few short walks from the site up to about five miles.

Facilities are a bit basic. A bit old, cold and out of date. Didn't see any laundry facilities.

There is a bar and restaurant next door which are busy and popular. Food was quite good. They did serve white wine without chilling it. Dogs are not particularly welcome. It seems to be up to the bar staff whether or not your dog is allowed in. The bigger the dog the less likely you will get in. Seems daft when half the potential customers on the site have dogs.

I try to get up to the North coast several times in the year, and this campsite never disappoints. There is always a friendly and helpful welcome for everyone. The site is certainly busier with the promotion of the 'North Coast 500', but there is plenty space for tents, and even some sheltered spots should it be wild weather. Facilities may not be as fancy as some campsites, but they are perfectly adequate and clean; the camper's kitchen is a bonus in wet weather. The location is of course fantastic, and the four legged friend loves the beach at the campsite and further round at Balnakiel. The village has a couple of places to eat out, and two stores for provisioning. In my top three UK campsites.

Stayed here for one night while touring the north coast on motorcycles.

One thing that isn't mentioned much is the campers kitchen complete with two gas rings and free gas - a great facility for hikers, cyclists and bikers travelling light. It really does make a big difference having a sheltered space to stand up in, space to set out food and equipment, having more than the one burner you've probably brought with you, and having tables and chairs to sit at.

I didn't check all the shower and toilet facilities but was glad to be up early to use the showers nearest our pitch as they did get busy while we were taking our tent down.

Good bar/restaurant on site, but again it gets busy.

Wonderful site for views of the top of the western highlands, overlooking a stunning beach. Well kept site that it is undulating! that adds to the charm. Many pitches with breathtaking views and some more sheltered when the weather is Scottish! Toilet facilities pretty good although look a bit ramshackle. BE WARNED Hot water from taps is scalding hot which is dangerous in the extreme and illegal in a public facility. It is nice to have hot water but the temperature is supposed to be regulated for safety reasons. It would skin a child so be warned. Village has all you would need, a nice looking pub, village stores, very expensive but 24 hour with a card (worth noting)petrol station, beautiful beach and walks in the right weather and more. All in all after John o Groats the next must visit site.

Beautiful situation but the facilities leave a lot to be desired. Shared male/female shower block which was basic to say the least. Toilets basic too. No laundry facilities, there is a drying room but it's simply a washing line, in what looks like a shed. I know we visited at the end of the season but the facilities weren't particularly clean. Pretty expensive for what was supplied compared to other sites. As others have commented, the owner is making a lot of money for this site, he really does need to think about putting a bit back into upgrading the facilities. We had a couple of meals in the restaurant, no bar meals as they were short staffed, ok but fairly expensive.
