    Any recommendations on an overnight stop (camp or wildcamp) relatively handy for the Scrabster Ferry? TIA

    image.jpgimage.jpgGo to the harbour master booking office and ask in their to o/n on keyside .i spoke to a lady she came and looked at our van and said no probs.its 6-0 mtrs
    Also lidl on the left before you hit the harbour ,we asked when buying milk n bread to stay in car park if needed and manager ok'd it
    One more is if you pass the harbour entrance on right stay on main road and a short distance on left there is a hard standing set back from road that is used also
    Hope this helps
    Also if you have a all you can eat breakfast on board for 9 odd I think both o you would be able to get fed and as much tea/coffee you want ,tight scots you see

    Last May we parked up in the car park, on the harbour across from the hotel. Arrived lateish, had a couple of beers in the pub and moved on early to catch the ferry. Had quiet night with no problems.

    Paul the picture I posted isn't where I o/n
    I reversed towards a barrier opposite the office /pub and overlooked the boats below me .
    It was the steward on the boat that put us wise about the meal and I let the rest of the vultures that were on a later sailing about it ,hope they dinnae read this!
    If you get the break get a side plate fill it up then head on back.The guy obviously realised I was underfed and Took great pity on me .

    I'm working up there right now & pass that road end daily. It's not before the Sun's up early Ferry so as well as begging around with harbour and Lidl why not rock about a mile or two away at Thurso Harbour ? It's not in POI'S yet I need give Chris loadsa new updates for there and Orkneys. Zoom in Google earth just off Cafe and you'll see a Camper at Thurso harbour entrance.

    I have stayed at at Castletown just to the east. There are several POI locations there and it's a lovely peaceful place. Recommended.
    Remember - POI additions and updates can be sent by email to POI@wildcamping.co.uk
