It takes us around 12 minutes to drive to Dunnet Beach, one of the several sandy beaches in Caithness. Dunnet is a beautiful sandy beach on the North Coast 500 Route and is a few miles from John O' Groats. Dunnet has a good car park and public facilities (open during the main tourism season). The caravan and campsite is busy during summer (closed in winter) and you usually do need to book ahead as the site has a "site full" up today, the 16th May. Dogs are allowed on the beach year round with no restrictions.
Below are some pictures of my 3 dogs having great fun on the beach. Sorry about the poor quality of the photographs as I used an old digital camera today that I now notice has internal smudges, I guess I will have to use my other older camera next time I am on the beach - sand and cameras do not go together so I will have to be careful when I use my old, but trusty Canon D600 in the future.

Lucy on the beach at Dunnet, always running and chasing her ball.

Posie always runs after the other two dogs, she also loves being in the water, paddling not swimming.
Posie is we think a long haired Parsons Jack Russell. She is a reall cuttie.
Jip is our third (but not last) adopted dog. He is an older collie, at time of writing he will be over 14 years old. He is kept fit with our two younger dogs keeping him company.
