Lovely immaculate sheltered site, huge flat gravel (or grass) pitches, very well spaced with hook ups, good motorhome service point. Very peaceful and quiet, never heard the train. Very welcoming owner who gave us a map of the site plus a map of Wick with all the restaurants and cafes marked on it. Supermarket is 5 minutes walk, Wick centre is a nice level 10 minute walk along the river. Only downside was the showers, very clean, and the water was hot and powerful, but boy are they tiny, the smallest shower tray and dressing area we have ever seen, in both the ladies and the gents, could do with updating. If you use your own facilities this is a perfect site.

Lovely friendly site maintained with a great deal of pride by its resident owners who will give you a very warm welcome. Pitches are spacious and level, facilities are perhaps a bit dated but absolutely spotlessly clean. Loads of hot water. Drive over grey water dump for motorhomes easy to access.

Site fees are amongst the lowest we came across on the NC500 and offer good value for money.

Main entrance is via a low bridge under the railway but units higher than this can use an alternative road alongside the river.

Directions either by phoning the very helpful owner or from the clear map at the turning circle before the rail bridge.

Easy walk alongside the river into town or go out under the rail bridge and there is a Co op supermarket within 5 minutes walk.

Don't worry about the rail line we were there for 2 days and heard 4 trains, not exactly Kings Cross. Wick žtself used to be one of the biggest Herring fishing ports and part of it, Pultneytown, is a planned town by Thomas Telford and although some restoration work is underway it really should make more of its architectural heritage but what you see is a working lived in town and not a museum peice. The Pultney Distillery is well worth a visit.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here and certainly will be back.

Absolute perfection. To the owner of the site to the pitch we got the price of the pitch the easy walk to the town and the harbour fish suppers, , also the walks for our dog. Love this site wished we could have stayed longer.

Spent a night here on the NC 500 route. Nicely kept site with good facilities and helpful people, and not too expensive. We had a nice level hard standing pitch. Toilets and showers were good and very clean. There is a railway line nearby, but not a problem, you would hardly notice it. There were washing up facilities for the campers, but cannot comment as we did not use them. The waste water and toilet emptying points were were very good, amongst the best we have encountered on this run. There is a short walk into the town along the side of the river, which was very pleasant and only takes around 10 minutes. We would certainly use this site again.

Nice rural campsite with a view of the lake, really friendly and welcoming staff. Good facilities provided including an outside sink/washing up area, toilets and showers. All in pretty good condition and kept very clean. There is a small shop at the entrance with camping essentials. Although we didn't need the electrical points there are several dotted around the site.

It is local to town with a short 10 minute walk along the lake, really useful if you want to visit the local pubs!

Because it is near the town there is a bit of noise from the railway and also the airport, however it wasn't enough to disturb our sleep.

There were a few midges and other insects as it's close to the lake so be prepared and pack some insect repellant for the tent!

We didn't have our daughter with us so couldn't comment on the child friendliness - however there were several families around with young children who all seemed to be enjoying it.

This a well-run campsite that offers nice pitches with electric hookup and a good connection to the city.

The pitches are really spacious and the staff is really friendly. We got lots of information about what to see and do in and around Wick.

If you stay there in the high season I highly recommend the Scottish variety show and the Halkirk Highland Games.
