We had 2 pitches together, looking right out over the sea. Stunning in the sunshine! Pitches can be a bit close together due to the uneven landscape but it didn't seem to bother anyone. Toilets and shower block are separate at one end and a small combined block at the other side. All are serviceable but a bit outdated and too few for the size of the site. Queued for 20 minutes one morning for a shower! Visited the local for a meal, and despite an electric power cut, staff and food were excellent. Beach walk was superb and it was great to see kids having fun in the waves

If you like wide open spaces this is the site for you, minimum signs, rules and regs a great beach.

We all like to do a bit of wild camping when touring Scotland but you do need to empty out and fill up occasionally so this is a great place.

The only down side for us the pub/restaurant didn't let dogs in, and it was too cold and windy outside good job we carry our own supplies.

Stayed here 2 nights and pre-booked to reserve a pitch on the cliff front. Fantastic views over Durness beach and the North Coast cliffs. Durness Beach is a fabulous place on it's own. A stretch of beautiful golden sand interspersed with craggy rocky outcrops.

I had expected the site to very basic due to it's remoteness, but I found everything very acceptable - separate toilet and unisex shoer blocks - phone signal was reasonable, I found the wi-fi a bit temperamental in the adjoining bar/restaurant - tv reception was also surprisingly good.

There's a Spar shop just above the site and a bar/restaurant just below.

The lady warden was very polite and chatty.

Overall I thought the site was excellent but there are a couple of points to note:

The pitches are crammed quite close together

For the best views people like to try to get onto the front row just above the beach - it is however the windiest point too, so the smart idea may be to go for a pitch on the 2nd tier to get the best compromise

Stayed here for two nights, had booked ahead so got given front row looking over the beach which is exposed to wind but was not a major problem on our visit. Pitches are closely packed together in this area - more spread out further back or if you don't want hook up - so no real space to sit outside our van. Toilets clean in both blocks. 2 individual showers in upper block which worked fine, the other bigger block has unisex area for showering so we avoided this one. Spar supermarket just a couple of minutes walk away. Bar and restaurant on site do not take dogs except when food isn't being served in the bar! As most people seemed to have dogs this is a bit short sighted of the management. Food wasn't brilliant so we only visited once. Beach great for dogs as are the local walks. Café at the craft centre welcomes dogs. Owner friendly - she comes round morning and evening to collect pitch fees and leaves note on door with your pitch number if you book ahead.

I wanted to leave a review about Sango Sands. Durness. On arrival we found a lovely location to camp. We pitched our tent on the cliff top overlooking the Atlantic and just above a beautiful beach which would be a dream for families.

We then had a wander around the site, checking out the facilities. The toilets whilst clean left little room for people using the washing facilities and other people trying to access a toilet, no hair dryers. There were only 3 showers for at least 3 fields full of tents. Which to me was totally inadequate for the amount of people camping and every time I passed people were queuing. I tried to use the showers early in the morning thinking I would beat the queue but to no avail, there was still a queue and we were told by people who were leaving the showers that they were cold. I gave up at this point. When I looked in the showers on arrival afternoon I found all of them dirty. Not something I really wanted to use anyway.

There was two washing up sinks with a really good supply of hot water and a camping kitchen. Which was basic in the extreme.

I must say we found the staff on site were very friendly.

I did hear people saying how lovely the site was but I was comparing it to other sites we have camped at this week and Sango Sands was definitely in need of modernisation and upgrade. I am not sure if we would come back, which is such a shame because of the location.

Brilliant site, relaxed, happy management, always ready with local info and directions. Toilets are clean, showers are basic but good with plenty hot water. Great motorhome service point, fabulous views and easy access to beach. We didn't have children in our party but I feel adults would have to keep a close eye on wee ones due to the ease of access to beach and cliffs. A great spot to explore this part of Scotland from.
