Nice site up to the Caravan Club standards. I agree that some hardstandings are needed. But I understand the CC are reluctant to put them in for the same reason they won't connect the site to the Club WiFi (which we had paid for in advance). They say the season is too short to justify either of these expenses!

Come on CC, you know you can afford it, you have huge reserves!

This was our second visit and would definitely go back there.

Only stayed two nights.

Spectacular place, right on the beach and what a beach.

Lovely walks and cycling paths very near and even on the beach at low water.

Don't miss sunsets and the shirt drive up to Dunnet Head is a must.

Good facilities but some pitches a bit lumpy so blocks needed.

Just stayed for four nights at this site. The situation is lovely, very close to the wonderful beach. All pitches are on fairly level grass and well spaced out, so no feeling of overcrowding.

Sanitary block is the usual high standard of the Caravan club with clients being allocated keys for the use of the facilities.

It is by nature of the situation a very open site and therefore gets full blast from high winds and driving rain. Awnings and canopies could be a problem.

Our big gripe and it came as quite a shock was the amount of traffic noise from the main Thurso to John 'o Groats road which runs immediately alongside the site. It seemed to be unrelenting day and most of the night and have to say, did spoil our stay considerably. And for this reason we would not revisit.

The surrounding countryside is quite nice although flat. We visited Dunnet Head, Castle of Mey, Thurso and the Isles of Orkney. Ferries run frequently during the summer months.

This is a nice little Caravan Club site situated alongside a superb beach ! The site toilet and shower facilities are up to the usual good club site standards and the wardens are very friendly. The site has all grass pitches and not many are level however although we had a lot of rain the grass was nice and firm ! The only gripe would be that the main Thurso to John O Groats road runs alongside the site and was quite noisy.

Great site nicely located by the beach.

Well kept and nice friendly service.

We were positioned close to the main road which although had traffic noise, it didn't seem to bother us at all. Can however appreciate that it does in fact affect others.

Facilities were kept to a high standard.

Like one or two others have said, although having rained a lot of pitches are still firm however some were not, with some having to be roped off and some with heavy tyre impressions which looked problematic.

There are no hard standings.

With pitch prices as high as they are, the Caravan Club needs to provide good percentage of hard or reinforced standings, in particular on sites like this where rain can be expected to take its toll.

You should never have to face the prospect of having to pay for having your vehicle recovered from a pitch that is not firm enough to support it.

The usual standard of caravan site facilities, pitches are all grass some you will need chocks. The site is very open, awnings if used will need good tie downs. The site is next to the beach that is good for long walks. Thurso is the nearest town to the site, a Tesco and lidl are in thurso as well as other shops. And garages. The sun sets were great while we were there.
