We have stayed at this site many many times over the past 10 years both with children and without and we will no doubt stay many times more. The site is impeccable as are the facilities and the beach is superb. There is direct access to the beach via a gate and some wide wooden steps.

We normally take our bikes so that we can go to the castle of Mey and Castletown but this year the Castle was closed for the whole 10 days we were there so it's worth checking their website before you go. Without bikes we made use of the bus to take us to Thurso. This means walking about 5 mins into Dunnet village and waiting for the bus. It cost us about 7. 40 for a return ticket for both of us and the same bus continues onto John O' Groats as well. We had a quick look around, bought some shopping, had lunch and got the bus back and the driver was kind enough to drop us off outside the campsite.

Dunnet itself has a hotel, newly renovated and called The Northern Sands Hotel. It has Wifi which the site does not. We went there for lunch and got a ham & tomato paninni which was awful, it tasted like a sandwich full of tomato puree and the tea had to be sent back as it was cold! We decided to give it another go later that week in the evening but there was a wedding on and they weren't serving food at all so not a great experience there. The wifi is patchy too.

Please be aware that there is is no Wifi at Dunnet campsite at that the phone signal (ours was vodafone) was not great either. To us that part the delight in the place but to others this may be a problem.

The warden were fabulous and didn't start the tractors up at 8am like they do on so many C & C sites. The weather was great too which helps and the Orkney ice cream sold in reception is a must!

Wow! You wont get a site much closer to a beautiful sandy bay than this one. Literally walk from your caravan, through a small wooden gate, down a handfull of wooden steps and there it is. About three miles of glorious sand sheltered by Dunnet Head. A few pitches look directly on to the beach and dunes and obviously these are very rarely empty for long but most pitches can see the sea. All grass pitches but with solid ground and well kept grass so even in rain these are not a problem. Can be very windy at times so remember your awning tie down straps! Very good information room and absolutely spotless facilities, can't fault this wonderful smaller site. Can get busy due to being on the NC500 route but in my opinion never feels busy as well spaced and well laid out. No children's play area on site but not needed with the beautiful beach literally on your doorstep and visitor centre above the loo block with free entry. Glorious!

Lovely clean site with excellent facilities as you would expect fro a c and m site. Very easy walk to an amazing beach however what made this site great were the wardens. They were both efficient and it was busy in reception but also both so friendly and warm, just the welcome you need after a long journey. I would return here again purely for the wardens!

We weren't members of the c and m club so obviously had to pay the surcharge hence the drop in star rating however for members, good value for money.

Excellent site right next door to a wonderful dog friendly beach, that is so easy to access in less than 2 minutes. (When approaching the site look out for the Seadrift Centre, which is the same building as reception, we nearly drove past, just spotting the tiny Caravan & Motorhome sign at the last minute). Grass pitches, but very firm and well drained, some are a bit uneven so you may need leveling blocks. The showers and toilets are spotlessly clean, very good laundry room and indoor washing up area. The wardens are extremely friendly and welcoming and have a really good knowledge of the local area. There is dining pub just a short walk away, unfortunately not dog friendly, plus the Rock Rose Gin distillery. The on site shop has the basics. No site wifi as yet, but coming soon, not a problem as we found the phone signal (and TV signal) excellent. We pitched on the beach side of the site and did not have any problem with road noise. Worth booking ahead as it is a very popular site, we would certainly use it again.

A good site, fantastic beach location and with facilities as to be expected for CC. Great wardens. Best site in the area and very good value. I was lucky to be there during the annual Orca week up at Duncansby head. Some may miss having no site IT access but it is no great hardship. No designated child play area but with 2 miles of sandy beach on the door step again it should not be a deterrent.

Stayed here for two nights. Site was full second week of May. Very busy due to extra traffic brought in by the North Coast 500.

Site managers were very friendly and helpful.

The site is next to the road and there is a bit of noise from traffic.

Pitches on hard standing and grass. Facilities were very good as you expect with the Caravan and Motorhome Club. You do get a key to access toilets which is a bit of a nuisance. There were only two dishwashing sinks and this caused a queue after breakfast.

Good value site at 17 a night for members, two adults and electric.

There are laundry facilities. Wiring was just being put in for WiFi so there should be WiFi near the reception in the near future. TV signal was good.

There is a bar/restaurant about half a mile up the road which has WiFi and is very modern and looks nice. It does not allow any dogs in any part of it which means it is turning away half its potential customers from the camp site.
