We are lucky to see the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis quite often – as you can see from Kingsley’s short film above – with so little competing light up here there are some great places to observe the phenomenom – most of the shots featured here are from the campsite but also some taken from beaches a few miles either side of us.
Whales, Seals and Dolphins
Whales, seals and even the occasional Bottlenose Dolphin may cruise by as you take in the impressive views that keep some of our visitors coming back every year.
There is much to do and see in this most northerly part of the highlands including visiting impressive and dramatic features of the surrounding coastline such as Smoo Cave, Faraid Head, Cape Wrath and Loch Eriboll.

A short walk takes you to Balnakeil that hosts interesting architecture, an ancient Church from 722, a hillside links Golf Course with amazing views, a stunning long sandy beach and an unique craft village – much to do and see indeed!
