This is an ideal site for exploring the extreme north east of Scotland. The site lacked a bit in camping atmosphere. Most people keeping very much to themselves. And lots of overnight stayers rather than people settling in for several nights or a week.

We stayed for a week in a tent with EHU. The site predominantly caters for motorhomes and caravans rather than tents, however they do have a small designated area for tent pitching. We also noticed a few tents were pitched outwith the designated area.

Site is mostly flat and sheltered by the sand dunes. The beach is accessible on foot within a couple of minutes walk maximum from the site. The beach is good but it had a lot of jellyfish washed up when we visited.

Facilities are clean and ample. Plenty of hot water and no queues despite the site being quite busy.

Tent pitching area can get a bit boggy after heavy rain. Useful to use a footprint under your tent.

Supermarkets and other shops in nearby Thurso (15 minute drive). The site had a small shop stocking essentials.

Definitely one of the better sites on the Scottish north coast.

What a wonderful site. Great staff. Great views. Facilities as expected for a club site. Despite there being only 3 shower cubicles I didn't have to queue. No wifi. Little radio reception. Intermittent phone signal. Perfect! We are planning to return next year.

Great four night stay at delightful seaside site with great facilities. Some criticism of road noise totally unfounded and delightful sound of nearby waves quite enjoyable. Plenty to do locally including gin/vodka distillery, good hotel restaurant, cycling, walking and just enjoying the area noting the day trip to Orkney an absolute must. Chocks required on many pitches as slightly undulating but not hilly. Laundry and shower facilities exceptional and site generally good value. Dishwashing area a little small but ok at non busy times. A nice size well kept site with pleasant well organised wardens. A few hard standings would help at fringe season times would be a useful addition.

One night stay while doing the NC500. Wished we had booked for longer. Popular site with passing campers so glad we had booked ahead. Good clean facilities which you have to use a key for to get in. Wardens give you this when you book in but reception is only open from 9-11am and 4-6pm. Fine if you have facilities on board as you can check in later but not if you are in a VW campervan. Glad I knew this from a Caravan club review otherwise be would have been scuppered if we had arrived later in the evening. This info is not in booking details. Fabulous beach for dog and husband to run around on. We were the only people on it at times. Lovely sunset too. There is an A road next to site so we made sure not to pitch on that side but we didn't notice it overnight.

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.
