Given the situation, this should be an amazing campsite yet like much of John o Groats it was very disappointing. Not a friendly or helpful welcome and given a pitch virtually on top of someone else's tent. Would never stay in JoG again, as much better sites and places elsewhere in area.

Pretty grim shower block as is much of the site.

Only saving grace are the sea views if you are lucky enough to get such a pitch.

I have just spent 10 days on the this site and must say it's one of the best holidays and sites I have been on.

Toilets, Laundry and dish washing facility's was always kept clean. There is a wee shop/post office and fuel filling station les than a two minute drive. There is also a pub/hotel les than a five minute walk that also does home cooked meals.

The views across to the Orkney Islands and Pentland firth where outstanding. Ideal site if you wished to go to the Orkney Islands for the day.

I would like to thank the family wardens of the site for being so friendly and most helpful. Many thanks.

Looking forward to going back next year.

It is the only campsite at 'First and Last' John O' Groats. Direct access to the passenger ferry to the Orkney's. The booking office is adjacent to the campsite. Great views. The facilities are very good. After registration you get a key to get access to the facilities block, both for the sanitary rooms and the room for clothes washing and dish washing. There are enough hsp's. The small village with a small post office / cash machine / grocery is half a mile back, but there are a restaurant, chippy, shops around the parking area in front of the pier.

A lovely site with spotlessly clean facilities. The friendly owners made us most welcome and it was a pleasure to meet them. The site is level and well-maintained and the location looking out to the Orkneys is simply stunning! Not much to do at John O'Groats, but we didn't care! A stay at this site more than made up for it!

Lovely spacious site. Stayed here twice on our trip and would definitely return. Take a walk over Duncansby stacks if you stay here and watch the puffins, razorbills etc and look out for the seals which you can also see on the site itself. Showers are free and hot and the block is immaculately clean. Laundry room available. 2 for a wash. However they also have a spin dryer so if you want to hand wash that's easier. Washing line provided too. Nice pub about 10 minutes walk away that's been refurbished. All in all a site I would be happy to return to again and again

Been here a couple of times now. Quite a nice site in a great location. The owners are friendly and chatty and are full of info should you need to ask about anything in the area. The site is well kept and on entry you are given a key for the toilet block and laundry room. The showers are free and quite roomy with plenty of space for your clean gear to stop it getting splashed on.

From your tent you can see the nearby deserted isle of Stroma and further off the isles of Orkney. You may also see seals, dolphins and killer whales swim by. If you walk to Duncansby stacks be sure to follow the fence around the coast on the way out. Plenty of birds here for the ornothologists.

There is a pub which is about a 10 minute walk away and nearby hotel although none to sure if they welcome non residents as I have never been.

Nearest towns are Wick and Thurso. There's a great chippy in Thurso, without advertising, its the one next to a launderette. One thing of note, if visiting some of the castles around Wick they are not well signposted so pre-plan trips there with on line maps and/or guides.
