If you’re thinking of Scotland for your next adventure and planning somewhere to stay, then look no further! Inspired by the surrounding landscape, The Crofter's Snug was born in 2016 offering a welcome break to travellers touring mainland Scotland's north east coastline. We all love travelling but it can be exhausting! Whether you're arriving by car, caravan or motorhome, we provide the perfect place to stop and take a breather for a couple of nights or make the most of the area and stay for a few days. We're located six miles west of John O'Groats, just a field or two away from the popular NC500 tourist route and ideally placed to explore this fabulous stretch of the Caithness coastline. 

Our job is simply to ensure you have a unique, comfortable and memorable experience in order to recharge your batteries and continue on your journey. Click on the options below to find out more about what The Crofter's Snug has to offer.




Our accommodation is super cozy and our prices competitive. We have two glamping pods and a shepherd's hut - all with free Wifi, a fire-pit, ensuite & kitchenette - and of course those stunning coastal views we keep mentioning. Oh, and Pod One is pet friendly so pooch can enjoy a holiday too! 

Caravans & Motorhomes


We have a small 5 pitch CAMC motorhome and caravan site with large, hardstanding pitches, each with their own EHU, water and grey waste points. There is also a chemical waste emptying facility a short walk away and free Wifi across the site. Please note there are no shower/toilet facilities.
