High on a hill above the village of Dunbeath, this is a site that looks out to the sea with one eye, and inland towards hills and mountains with the other. It should be said straight off that the campsite is located slap-bang on the A9 as it cruises towards Thurso in the far north-east, but traffic around here is a whole lot sparser than that experienced further south, and at night becomes so light as to be almost unnoticeable. Indeed, you’re more likely to be woken by the early morning calls of curlews than by anything speeding north. Meanwhile, the loos and showers have undergone a complete refurbishment and now, aside from being all shiny and new, boast under-floor heating too. Just 36 miles short of John o’Groats, the site is very handy for a last or first night on the End-to-End route, as well as for trips to the Orkneys from Scrabster (28 miles), or a visit to Whaligoe Steps (13 miles) for a look at Britain’s oddest harbour (it has always been laughably dangerous). Despite its self-designation as a caravan park, this site is just as welcoming to campers as caravanners, and the former have the pick of the best pitches up at the top end of the field. There are also very preferential rates given to backpackers and cyclists, making this one of the best value campsites for walkers and riders in Scotland. Furthermore, anyone staying for a week gets the seventh night free. Resulty!
