Excellent site, area well maintained, toilet/showerblock very clean and warm. 6 meter rule applies allowing plenty room between campers. Pitches all grass with a well kept one way road around the site. Hook ups plentiful, waste bins available, fresh water and chemical toilet disposal area easy to find. Site beside main road but does not intrude. Lovely bay to walk plus forest walk across the road. Highly recommend this site and will certainly visit again.

Cracking site. Just what you would expect from Caravan Club site really.

You are only a few minute walk from a huge stunning white sandy beach.

Facilities are excellent, clean and all in working order.

Staff friendly and helpful.

Pitches are a good size.

Can really recommend this site if you are up North visiting and want to stay in a lovely scenic area which is only about 20 miles from John O'Groats.

Travelling from the south coast, we booked Dunnet Bay and were glad we did as it was pretty full when we arrived. We booked in and found a corner pitch with a good view of the beach and settled into three days of exploring the area. The site is not huge but has plenty of water points with power to each pitch of course and the facilities are absolutely fine.

We toured quite a bit up there and the highlights included a drive down to Cape Wrath (too windy to get over on the day), the Castle of Mey which is superb with guided tours and Dunnet Head - actually the most northerly part of the British Mainland. Oh yes, and John O'Groats. Well you just have to chalk it up - a bit like Lands End - and we did actually get a decent cup of coffee there! We also stopped at the Castle Arms in Mey for a great breakfast one morning and had a really nice evening meal there the following day. It's about 5 mins from the site and worth a look.

There is Tesco in Thurso and Wick (better) for supplies and smaller Co-Ops scattered around the area. It's certainly wild up there but we loved it and would recommend the area and Dunnet Bay. From here, we caught the ferry at Gills Bay to the Orkneys - very convenient!

Arrived here mid afternoon. Nice place and told to set up on a pitch and report to office later. 27ft just fits the pitches.

Power available straight away.

Superb beach on which we walked at great length.

Facilities clean and well maintained.

Reasonably priced also.

Northern Sands Hotel within 800 yards if you want a nice pint or some food.

Good facilities for grey water. Fresh water freely available.

Recommended.

A very well maintained site right on the edge of Dunnet Bay beach, a long clean sandy beach ideal for children. The toilets and showers are luxurious and heated, the only minor problem being remembering the 6 digit entry code!

Pitches are well marked if a little close together, and mainly level grass making the use of awnings easier. The tent area is, however, quite small and whilst we were there, being used by campervans.

On the whole a very good site for a family, if a little regimented ('vans must by exactly central on the front and back markers') and we could happily have stayed longer than the 2 nights our schedule allowed.

Site - very open with the road along one side and the dunes on the other, as you turn in off the road you come into a public carpark for the visitor centre, then turn into the campsite. Ground a bit up and down, but you can find a flat bit if you look hard enough, you can also find a pitch with sea views. Road noise was not intrusive. Gates are locked from 8 - 8. Pitches are marked front and rear. Shop and takeaways a couple of miles away in the village, fish and chips weren't great.

Castle of Mey - good half day out, entry into castle is by guided tour only, but small groups and we had an excellent guide who had worked for the QM. Not very large inside and very interesting.

John O'Groats - A couple words - Don't go.

Having said that everyone does. Appalling place, not even the furthest north, so what is its claim to fame? Even worse than Lands End. 11am mid week, tourist information closed, toilets closed, hideous hotel thing, painted red and black like a house of horrors, boarded up, steps down to the harbour blocked by a rusty trailer, not even tacky, just horrible.

Wardens - pleasant and helpful.

Dog Walk - magnificent, straight out of gate on site onto sand dunes and down to the sea. Tide goes out quite a way leaving a nice hard flat surface. Also interesting things get washed up, like a dead seal, unfortunately it had been dead for about 6 months, perfect rolling territory for labs.

Washroom - nice building and always clean, standard size fixed shower, temperature can be adjusted but was a bit temperamental
