After looking on this website for sites which are open all year we decided to stay here for 1 night on route to Wick as no other sites were open in the area. This is a great little site for a stop over and ideally situated for touring the Caithness area. It has hardstanding pitches with electric hook ups, waste and water points for motorhomes. It has a lovely new toilet and shower block which is small but has everything you need, great showers which are spotless clean and have plenty piping hot water also an extra bonus under floor heating - perfect for this time of year! There is a laundry room and also a dish washing area. You can also have wifi for a couple of pounds extra if you wish. The only one small negative which might affect some campers is the traffic noise as it's close to the main road but I must say it didn't bother us as it's not exactly the M25! A great little site would definitely stay here again.

Stumbled on this absolute little diamond of a site after I couldn't get into Wick because they closed for the season earlier than stated on their website. Reckoned this place would be better than wild camping and my goodness was I right. Okay so it is quite close to a road but Eddie Stobart wasn't tearing up and down it. The owner was friendly and informative, the site is small and, when it's full, I could imagine it would be quite chummy, but the views down to the beach are lovely and the price is reasonable. The facilities though are second to none! 3 shower rooms complete with their own toilet, drench showers and enough room to keep your clothes dry, get yourself dry, get dressed and have a wee bit of a barn dance as well! Spotlessly clean, the owners here could show some sites a thing or two. I looked at this site as a last resort but I would now recommend it as a first choice for this area and I will be back again.

This site is very easy to find - just off the A9 at Dunbeath. There are 5 hard standing pitches and a larger grass area for tents. If you manage to get in one of the front pitches you will have a good view of the sea and cliffs. There are fields on 2 sides of the site, one with highland cows at the time, so nothing too noisy. However because it is quite close to the road there is some traffic noise.

The hard pitches themselves weren't too level but nothing some ramps couldn't sort out. Due to the overall size of the site they were quite close together - probably the minimum 6 metres but we didn't find it a problem at all.

The toilet/shower block is brand new, so much so that you could still smell the fresh paint! There are 3 showers and rather nicely you get a room to yourself with the shower, toilet and a sink - none of your cubicles with a curtain! The only draw back here was that there are 2 plus a disabled one so when the site is busier you may find yourself waiting.

The warden wasn't around when we arrived but you are informed to take a pitch and see the warden when they are back - which we did. She was around the site quite a lot chatting with people and helping them out - very friendly and helpful!

Lovely site - beautiful location, warden very friendly and welcoming. Pitches are round the edge of a field with an open space in the middle. The site advertises itself as 'taking all motorhomes, even ones you've converted yourself' and in fact there was a couple in a converted army truck whilst we were there!

Facilities clean and adequate: outdoor dishwashing with hot water and two toilets, each with a shower inside. The downside to this is that you'll probably have to wait a while for the loo during the morning rush-hour. An extra WC would make things easier.

Warning: beware the daredevil chicken that got chased out of various vans and then tried to steal our sausages from the frying pan while they were cooking

Friendly site, very much a ‘back garden’ feel. The grass is mainly level, slightly stony underneath, pitches are a generous 10m2 (marked). Right on the A9, so there is road noise. Motor home/caravan hard standings at the edge have good views over the water, the rest of us get glimpses. Fields at the back – Highland cows in when we were there.

The facilities are clean and as good as Rhona could make them, but this place will be so much better when the new block is built. At the moment you might end up crossing your legs and wishing that two people weren’t showering at the same time, as there are no separate toilets! The showers are both run off one tank, so be prepared for them to run cold if someone has been in just before you – we tried showering all three of our girls, but the water went chilly when the second was in.

No facilities for children, but they are allowed to play ball games in the centre of the grass. There’s a park a short drive down towards the harbour, and there’s a picnic spot a short walk from there. The Heritage Centre in Dunbeath is worth a look in, the walk up to the broch is easy going and goes past an archaeological dig (open to the public). No midgies!

We stayed at this campsite while touring the country by cycle. First impressions were good - the site is small but this gives it a friendly feel and everything seemed fairly well kept. Fee payment was the next good impression - prices are very reasonable indeed with a generous discount for 'backpackers' as opposed to those turning up in cars with bigger tents, more relaxed departure schedules etc.

The facilities are very basic but were entirely adequate for our needs. The wash block has two uni sex cubicles containing a shower, toilet, basin and washing machine in one. I'd imagine it gets a bit congested at peak times as someone in the shower renders a toilet engaged, but there was a notice conveying the owner's intentions to build more substantial facilities.

A special mention is required for the showers - not only are they electric but full on power showers, a luxury very very rare in Scottish campsites.

Dunbeath itself is the kind of place you would drive through and fail to really notice. This is because the main road is well above the beautiful coastline which is well worth seeing.

Overall a thoroughly good value campsite with a friendly welcome from owners and guests alike, although I would probably avoid if I knew the site was likely to be busy due to slightly limited/badly designed facilities.
