This campsite is the first and last campsite if you are dojng then JOGEL or LEJOG challenge. Situated in the heart of the village right next to the Pentland Firth, with stunning views over to the Orkney's, and an abundance of wildlife to boot.

The site has two types of pitches hardstanding and grass. I stayed on a grass pitch in a tent, and finding a flat spot was a bit of a challenge here to be honest, but the owner is fairly relaxed where you pitch so it isn't a real issue.

You get a key for the shower block, which is good considering the close proximity to the harbour, the shower block is modern and very clean, and the showers are perfect after a hard days traveling. In between the male and female showers is the washing up area, which again is spotless and has a coin fed washing machine and tumble dryer, ideal this far north.

For those interested in wildlife of the end to end challenge this is a nice site to stay at.

This is a busy little site but very very nice. The owners were extremely helpful with info from good walks to lending me some washline pegs. The pitch was level, grandstanding with grass to one side. Me and the dogs loved it here.

What a position! Great views to the Orkneys across Pentland Firth. Whoever said there's no reason to stay more than 1 night missed a treat by not walking out to Duncansby Head & Stacks. We were lucky enough to see a Puffin. Facilities excellent and clean, lady who greeted us very friendly and helpful, allowed us to check in at 10 a m. Could do with a key each for the facilities though.

Probably one of the most envied camp site locations ever. Right at the top of Scotland in the village of John o' Groats. The site is adequate for the night you will spend there, there is no need to stay longer. You will marvel at the views of the Orkneys if you are lucky! have a wander around the rip off priced gift shops in the village, not eat in any of the equally expensive eateries and have your photo taken at the most famous road sign in the uk! Job done. The site has a vast toilet block with showers you could hold a dance in, a bit old and cold (a bit of heating for the 20 fee would have been nice) but spotlessly clean. Very friendly welcome from the owners, 16amp power, lots of water points. TV reception A1 mobile reception too. Wifi compliments (at a cost) of Highland Public Wifi. And that's it. You can say you been there but you are unlikely to go back. All in all a must visit----once!

I stopped here at the end of my LEJOG cycling trip and pitched my small tent. Plenty of space, although a bit exposed when windy, but that is the nature of the area. I pitched my tent behind the excellent shower block and locked my bike to a washing line pole, because like most sites there's no bike parking. The bike seemed perfectly safe though. Site is literally 30 secs walk from the end/start of LEJOG/JOGLE and is the only camping option, but a good one.

Stopped one night, doing the NC500. Well, you have to stop at John O'Groats & get that photo of the famous sign post pointing to Lands End, before the next group of charity fundraisers arrives to get their 'end of trip' photos. Apart from the jetty & refurbished hotel, there's not here of note, but late Queen Mother's Castle of Mey is nearby & well worth a visit. The site was fine, we expected the owners to be taking advantage of the location but the fee for EHU was about 20, well in line with similar sites and the owners were welcoming. We were allocated our pitch; we hadn't booked, we got the last hookup (mid week at 5:00pm); it was on well-mown grass (no hard stands left) which we prefer anyway. Fabulous views of Orkney from all pitches. Dog walk offsite towards the beach worked well. The showers were in massive cubicles, hot, free, and not the push-button pulse type. One key, so we had to co-ordinate our visits to the showers & toilets. We'd be happy to come back, but we might book next time to be sure we'd get a hookup.
