This is a small, friendly site with excellent facilities including a new shower block with underfloor heating, private shower rooms and a laundry. We have a very efficient drying room (useful for wet cyclists, walkers and bikers as well as for drying washing). We are open all year, so have lots of hard standings and proper hard roads. We are only 400 metres from an excellent pub/restaurant . . . easy walking distance. This is an excellent base from which to explore the far north, to pause on a 'round the north of Scotland' tour, to stop before or after visiting Orkney, to make a last or second last stop on a long walk or cycle ride, perhaps from Land's End!, or for simply relaxing in beautiful surroundings and taking pleasant walks.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
