Lovely site. Wonderful views of Stroma island and the Orkneys. We were very lucky with the weather and was able to go on the wildlife cruise around the bay. Facilities are very good and when I realised I hadn't enough pegs the lady at reception let me borrow some. Pitches are very generous and plenty of hard standing. No separate area for tents which is good for families with different units. Would definitely use again and thought it was good value for the main holiday weeks, 20 with electric for our motorhome.

Good site with plenty of space to choose where you wish to pitch tent. Facilities good, provided with key to shower/toilet block, so only good when arrive and warden is on site, although can access warden via mobile phone. Dishwashing and laundry facilities are also on site. If you need to get provisions, nearest shop is the post office about a mile away - not open on Sunday however. Nearest supermarket possibly Wick, 17 miles away. Great location for day trip to Orkney and John O'groats tourist facilities - with tourist vistor centre on site. If I venture that way again, would definitely stay there.

This site is literally situated alongside the famous landmark of John O Groats ! We turned up early 10am and the nice elderly couple who run the site allowed us to pitch immediately and leave to Motorhome so we could catch the 10. 30 ferry to the Orkneys for a day trip ! (56 each for a full days guided tour incl ferries & coach ' well recommended) The site has fantastic views over the sea towards the islands, we had a level hardstanding with EHU if anything the pitches are a little close together ! The toilet & shower facilities although old were immaculate and the shower cubicles are huge with plenty of unlimited hot water. We had fish & chips from the kiosk above the small harbour and although the owners were very nice, the fish & chips weren't the best (all frozen food) and at 18 for two won't have it again ! the same applied to the breakfast in the cafe next morning ! all in all a Great place to stay but avoid the local food lol

Excellent site adjacent to the sea beautiful views as we had our dog a German Sheppard we were given a plot behind the toilet block. Which suited us.

Toilet and shower block in good condition showers all ok no time limit on the showers that's good.

Never used the laundry room so cant comment.

The trip to the Orkney islands is a must good value for money and we even took the dog.

The Italian chapel bought a few tears to some of the people on the tour they were Italian.

Heart wrenching really.

Shops all good we dined in the hotel up the road every night good food.

Owners were polite and warmly would visit again but coming from stoke is a 12 hour drive to much but glad we went visited wick and Thurso. Mey castle.

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.
