Beautiful little beach for a nice short walk, and if you like you can search for the elusive Groatie Buckie which lands on this beach. The Views are beautiful.

Lovely, largely unspoilt beach offering great walking and birb/weather watching opportunities. Varied wildlife thanks to the location and dunes and well maintained due to local conservation.

I camped on the grass near the lighthouse during a trip around Scotland. Great views from the cliffs but can be a bit windy ;-p

Wonderful scenery and easy to access - Dunnet Head is worth visiting, even for just half an hour or so.

This is natural scenery at its best. The wind was howling and the sea spray hitting me in the face. If natural scenery is what you enjoy then this is definitely worth 15 - 30 minutes of your time.

Hotel had been recently refurbished so everything was fresh and clean. Location is ideal for going to the northern most point of the mainland and just a few miles from John O'Groats. Food in the bar was excellent, especially the seafood. Definitely worth a visit.

I'm afraid I can't answer your question as I'm not a tour operator. If you're on a cruise ship you could try asking the Purser or someone in their travel office. Have a great trip.😎

There isn't any at the location. The one road approach at the start has a Pub/Hotel. That's about it I'm afraid ☹️
