A good choice for those who enjoy solitary tranquillity, at Dunnet Bay Caravan Club Site you can admire the stunning views over clean washed sands to lovely Dunnet Head, the northernmost point of the British mainland. Located in Dunnet, Thurso, the caravan park is in an area of vast natural beauty - it's a perfect location to unwind from the bustle of day to day life.
Dunnet Bay Caravan Club Site is ideal for walking expeditions and offers great nearby dog walking too. If you climb Dunnet Head you will be treated to magnificent views over the Pentland Firth to Orkney and a great part of the north coast to Ben Loyal and Ben Hope. To take in local restaurants as well as some retail therapy, a day trip over to Orkney from John O'Groats or Scrabster won't disappoint, in fact you can island-hop the string of islands by both boat and coach. If you're a keen birdwatcher, you can take a ferry trip around the Stacks of Duncansby to see a wealth of seabird life. Anglers are spoilt for choice with sea fishing by boat from Scrabster, fishing from the beach or freshwater fishing nearby. Sites of historic interest include the majestic Castle Mey and Mary Anne's Cottage, a museum detailing crofting life.
Dunnet Bay Caravan Club Site welcomes tent campers and has tent pitches available to both members and non-members. Pitches can be booked online or by phone - To do this and to find out further tent camping information, take a look at the Dunnet Bay tent camping page...

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 now 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.
