Camping face à la mer, eau et électricité incluses. Malgré la date, le temps était superbe. Mais il peut y avoir beaucoup de vent. Emplacement idéal pour des promenades sur les falaises.

Campsite facing the sea, water and electricity included. Despite the date, the weather was great. But can be very windy. Great location for walks on the cliffs.

Campingplatz direkt am Meer, Wasser und Strom inklusive. Trotz des Datums war das Wetter großartig. Kann aber sehr windig sein. Tolle Lage für Spaziergänge auf den Klippen.

    Stayed one night. We thought £32.50 was a great deal for us, considering it's a great location and you get EHU showers (very clean I must add!) water discharge and refill. Which we very much needed!

  • 5/5

    Great little site. Showers, toilets, laundry & and wee shop. Good views of the sea. Cosy little pub next door. £32.50 for the night for a hard standing with electric hookup. Roof tent and air shelter used. Really nice reception.

  • 5/5

    Lovely lady on reception desk super friendly. We turned up without a booking and she sorted it out. Being out of season it wasn’t a problem but maybe in peak times it would be best to book ahead of time. Super clean toilets and hot showers! Laundry and dish washing room too. Great view of the sea, a few seals bobbing about and close to the sign. Dog friendly shops and cafe just over the road.

  • 5/5

    Stayed here for one night price was good. Facilities we’re really good compared to what we have seen. Pitch space it’s huge. Very quiet. Woman at reception was lovely.

  • 4/5

    We booked on the day and managed to get a sea-view electric hookup spot. Staff were lovely. Only a couple of minutes walk from the sign. Facilities clean. A little pricey at £32 for one night, but all in all a good stay.

  • 4/5

    Alles wie beschrieben! Wir haben zwar eine Nacht mit viel Wind gehabt, dafür schien am nächsten Tag die Sonne! Blick auf die Orkney’s garantiert! Kosten für 1 Wohnmobil mit Fahrer 20,5 £, jede zusätzliche Person 3,50 £ und Strom 8,50 £.

  • 2/5

    Haben hier spontan übernachtet. mit WOMO und 2 Personen Energie, 31,50 Pfund. Nicht wie in den Kommentaren 30 oder noch weniger. V und E vorhanden Müll . Leider Autos mank den WOMO 's( gemischt), kaum Ruhe. Soviel Türen gibt es am Auto gar nicht.

  • 5/5

    toller Campingplatz, unschlagbare Lage, direkt im Ort und direkt am Strand, schön begrünt, traumhafte Aussicht auf die Orkneys, komplette sehr gute V/E, guter Internetempfang, Preis 24 Pfund ohne Strom (Strom ggf. 7 Pfund extra), Waschmaschine/Trockner möglich, sehr gute Fish and Chips bei The Cabin 50 mtr. vor dem Platz, Plätze für 1 Nacht etwas schräg (mit Keilen kein Problem)

  • 5/5

    Great place to stay. The lady at the desk was very accommodating when we rang up 30 mins before they closed without a pre booking. It has everything you could need and is only 2 minutes away from John O’Groats sign. I’d recommend to anyone.

  • 4/5

    Functional site and much needed after 3 nights off grid. Has everything you need and right by the sea with a lovely walk close by. A tad expensive at £30 and most of the pitches are sloping so much it’s impossible to be flat even with chocks.

  • 4/5

    Good stopver following 3 days living off grid. Proper shower, water top up, etc. Very close for that pic in front of the signpost! Get up early for the sunrise as got some great pics. Did pass nicer looking campsites further anti-clockwise from this one, but does the job. Electric hookup also useful, decent pricing too.

  • 3/5

    Good location and view across to Orkney. However for the price the facilities are very dated with poor temperature control on the showers, pitches cramped and exposed.

  • 5/5

    fatto 1 notte, due adulti con van 32 pound tutto compreso, vista splendida, meraviglioso la sera al tramonto quando tutti i turisti se ne sono andati ... campeggio pulitissimo, vale quello che costa

  • 4/5

    ok for one night. stopped here on a whim as it was late and cold so we just wanted somewhere to park for the night. I think it's pretty expensive for what it is, nothing special but bas electric and toilets etc so it does the job. Also perfect location to wander around John O'Groats in the morning.

  • 5/5

    Good stopover. No complaints. Friendly staff. Clean toilets and showers. Great views.

  • 4/5

    Camping avec vue imprenable sur la mer. £24 pour un emplacement vue mer sans électricité pour 2 adultes et 1 enfant. Sanitaires vieillots.

  • 5/5

    vue superbe ..nous n y avons pas dormis mais avons pu faire les services pour 10£

  • 4/5

    Sauberer Campingplatz. Haben 24 GBP für 2 Erwachsene ohne Strom gezahlt. Aber sehr schräg. Wir konnten trotz Keile nich richtig ausgleichen.

  • 5/5

    Prachtig uitzicht al kan je wel in de wind staan. Voorzieningen waren schoon al werd de douche heet en koud af en toe. Je kon prachtig wandelen naar de duncansby head stacks vanaf de camping

  • 5/5

    arrivés sans réservation place d vue sur la mer sans électricité payé 26.5£ pour un motorhomes de 7.5m un peu cher sanitaires propres services ok

  • 5/5

    Arrivé sans réservation, une place sans électricité face à la mer, à côté du terminal d embarquement pour les îles, 24 £ un peu cher, mais camping très propre

  • 5/5

    Good facilities, It's great to watch the Sun set while chilling in the van

  • 4/5

    Netter Empfang, schöne Aussicht, alles da, was man braucht. An vielen Stellplätzen gibt es keinen Strom. Etwas teurer als Campingplätze in der Umgebung. Ausgangspunkt für Bootstouren. Achtung Hundebesitzer: auf dem und um den Platz tummeln sich extrem viele Kaninchen!!

  • 3/5

    Leider sind die Duschen in schlechtem Zustand und warmes Wasser lässt auf sich warten. Der Ausblick ist schön, gut für eine Nacht

  • 5/5

    Nous avons séjourné une nuit sans avoir effectué de réservation , le camping étant plein on nous a gentiment trouvé une place sans électricité ce qui n était pas un souci pour nous. La vue est à couper le souffle , le camping est à taille humaine les sanitaires sont très biens .

  • 4/5

    Good views, great location and friendly staff. Only let down by dated toilet blocks and not enough laundry facilities, only one washer and dryer for the whole site . I would stay here again and I would recommend.

  • 5/5

    Great campsite. Brewery, deli, distillery and various shops within 5 min walk (distillery not dog friendly but others are) Fab views and numerous water points available. Toilets/warm showers in great condition. Would definitely stay again

  • 4/5

    Empfang war sehr freundlich, der Preis für 2 Pers und Hund aber ohne Strom mit 24 £ sicherlich an der Obergrenze. Die Sanitäranlagen waren zweckmäßig aber in die Jahre gekommen. Alles ok, wir würden trotzdem wieder kommen.

  • 2/5

    Pitches feel cramped & close together. Facilities are dated. Not amazing for £32.50. Ok place to rest your head for night if your doing NC500. Wouldn’t stay again.

  • 5/5

    Lovely campsite, lady on reception very helpful. Facilities were great, what more could you want for £24 for a hard standing pitch. (Didn’t need electric hook up)

  • 5/5

    Done 2 nights hear as we are doing the NC500 , one of the best sites we have stayed on not very big , but very very clean site /toilets /showers etc excellent and the staff are so polite the view is just an extra bonus

  • 5/5

    Unfassbar schöne Aussicht, wenn man keinen Strom braucht kann man sich einen Platz aussuchen. Wir haben in der Hochsaison ohne Reservierung einen Platz direkt an den Klippen ergattert. Einrichtungen völlig in Ordnung.

  • 5/5

    Great Motorhome site. Good facilities and clean. Staff/Owners friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone in this area.

  • 4/5

    Nice Views, 40 min lovely walk to the Duncansby Stacks (GREAT!!!), clean toilets, hot showers :) all motorhome services. Paid £32 campervan with 2 adults.

  • 4/5

    Short night stay and pleased because theres literally nothing here at all ..Good site £30 ehu ..

  • 5/5

    Toller Platz, wir haben am 4.9.2022 für 2 Nächte 60£ Camper, 2 Personen, inkl.Strom bezahlt. 6£ teurer als in der Beschreibung, aber ok für uns. Ist halt auch hier alles teurer geworden. Würde aber immer wieder hier her kommen, Sanitäreinrichtungen sind sauber was will man mehr.

  • 4/5

    Brilliant sea view good toilets and showers

  • 5/5

    Bel campeggio, passata una notte prima di imbarcarci per le Orcadi. Pagato 24 sterline per 2 persone ed un van di 6 metri. Ci hanno lasciato parcheggiare nel prato in prima fila con vista sul mare e sulle Orcadi.

  • 2/5

    Aussicht und Lage ist top, doch der Preis hat es in sich - als offizieller Stellplatz ist dieser fast unerschwinglich, ja mit 41 Pfund (6 alleine für Strom) über die Schmerzgrenze - Womo 9 m mit 3 Personen - ohne Bodeneinlass - sonst 0 Bedarf

  • 4/5

    Tolle Lage, fantastischer Ausblick, unfassbarer Sternenhimmel.... Sanitärs ok, schon etwas älter und knapp ausreichend. Große, ebene Stellplätze. Für uns vier im Campervan ein prima Platz für eine Nacht.

  • 5/5

    Wir haben 33,50£ für 2 Kinder & 2 Erwachsene bezahlt. Waschmaschine & Trockner im Waschhaus. Tolle Aussicht auf‘s Meer! Sehr gepflegter Platz, Duschen & WC sind etwas älter, aber die hat man ja dabei. Zu empfehlen ist ein Besuch in der örtlichen Brauerei!

  • 5/5

    Perfect seaview, good place to visit the Orkneys. Join the "wildlife cruises", you can see seals, puffins a.s.o.

  • 2/5

    platz ist wunderbar, aber die sanitären Einrichtungen sind sehr schlecht

  • 2/5

    Platz wirklich schön, ich verstehe nicht, warum man, wenn man rein fährt links nach unten, keine Stromversorgung anbieten kann, da dort eigentlich der Empfangscontainer steht und Strom verlegen ein leichtes wäre. Sanitär war in meinen Augen eher unterirdisch, ungepflegt und nicht besonders sauber. Ich war hier am 23.7.2022

  • 4/5

    The pitches are out in the open with stunning views across to the islands but can get rather windy. The facilities in general were quite good and equipped, the showers were a little temperamental with the pressure and temperature, but not a deal breaker. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Would recommend for a night. As a tip, no queues or crowds at the famous signpost across the road in the morning ~ 9am

  • 4/5

    can’t complain about anything….but the weather. Dense fog on june, 24th. Probably that’s why i got a pitch without reservation past 5pm. Even with a sea-vie

  • 3/5

    Sehr schöne Lage, WC und Duschen sauber. Preis allerdings teuer, da nicht alle Stellplätze Stromversorgung haben. Hier wäre ein günstiger Preis fairer. Deswegen nur 3 Sterne.

  • 3/5

    Amazing view, facilities ok. the overall tone is very bossy though. You get threatened that if you don't check out by 11am you'll be charged an extra nigh, which is common, I understand, but you can say that in a nice way. Just like the signs that are put up everywhere, they could be friendlier. Still it's a good campsite to stay for a night. Very central in town and very quiet anyways.

  • 1/5

    Wollten für V/E ohne Übernachtung 15 GBP haben...

  • 5/5

    Great campsite, friendly staff, excellent views. got cold at night being on the cliff side. Worth the fee for the night.

  • 4/5

    Loved the view from this site! Straight over the sea towards the Orkney islands. Really nice people at check in too. Toilets and showers very basic but clean. You can access a little sandy beach from the site too.

  • 4/5

    optimaler Platz direkt am Meer und alles was man braucht. Wir standen 1 Nacht

  • 3/5

    Grand camping "sans âme". ça change des petits campings presque familiaux qu'on a eus jusqu'à présent mais cela reste très correct et surtout très bien situé. Pour un fourgon et 2 personnes, nous avons payé 30£.

  • 2/5

    2 big shiny stars for the amazing views! Massively annoyed at myself for paying two of the rudest people I think I’ve ever met for the privilege. Wish we would have wild camped elsewhere!

  • 4/5

    Great location to camp for surroundings tourist points. Right next to the John O’Groats signpost & local cafe with good coffee for the morning. We had campervan with electrical hookup. Great views. We booked in advance and bank transferred payment. Toilet and shower facilities were clean enough and did the job.

  • 5/5

    We arrived around 1.30pm and got a fantastic pitch next to the water. Excellent view. Facilities were clean.

  • 2/5

    I have given this two stars because it looks like a fantastic place to stay. we tried to book but they were full so we asked if we could pay to use the services. the response we got was extremely rude. we wouldn't stop here now if it was empty. if you need services drive up towards mey, there is a campsite called ferryview which does a pit stop for £7.50. they were very friendly.

  • 5/5

    Lucky enough to get a pitch on arrival with an excellent view. Clean facilities. £20 for 2 adults in a camper. superb walk/run to Duncansby head/ stacks from the campsite.

  • 3/5

    Stayed here for the Orkney Island tour. £20 a night for a tent pitch. no BBQs allowed but there is a back gate to the beach where you can BBQ. although facilities were clean, the shower kept getting cold every 30 seconds. also you need a code to use the toilets, which is hard to remember and the lock for the block broke several times in my stay. good price for tourist destination.

  • 1/5

    We kindly ask to pay to empty the grey water and toilet and they denied the permission. Very unfriendly people.

  • 2/5

    Doesn’t allow you to use services only. Only if you pay for a night’s stay. Great for holidays, not for tourers.

  • 3/5

    Good stop to refresh. Clean showers and cleaning facilities. The lady was very rude.

  • 5/5

    The most amazing views !!!!!park up right to the ocean. stayed there for 1 night. 20£ for a campervan,no electricity. facilities clean. you can go on a wildlife cruise from here and there is a little brewery .

  • 5/5

    Had a wonderful pitch No 1 looking out to the ocean, we paid £70 for 2 nights with electric as we’re over 8m, used the washer/dryer they only have 1 of each, didn’t use the showers so no comment, but toilets were spotless and cleans regular, some fabulous hikes, wonderful cafe.

  • 3/5

    spent 1 night. As i was alone with hook up paid £20. i hour and you have seen it all though nice walk to duncansby lighthouse and clean well presented showers though could use updating.

  • 5/5

    Stayed 24/05/21, nice clean site. £25 with electric hook up. All necessary facilities available

  • 1/5

    This camp site is currently closed due to Covid

  • 4/5

    Very tidy and clean - good view - not the friendliest of staff though

  • 5/5

    Schöner Blick aufs Meer, Sanitär einfach aber sehr sauber. Ältere Leute, etwas überfordert, nahmen mich in Empfang. Mit etwas Geduld und netten Worten war alles kein Problem 19£ für einen Camper, Strom und eine Person. Ab 13 Uhr bis 20 Uhr! kann man eincecken.

  • 1/5

    Je n’ai pas testé le camping car nous avions juste besoin des services ce qui nous a été refusé catégoriquement. Pas très sympa...

  • 5/5

    Basic, clean site, with beautiful views. £19 for 1 adult, 1 child, van and electric hookup.
