    Just had four nights up here at Sango Sands camp site in Durness, very generous owner does not close the site for winter, if you don't want electrics it is totally free, 16A electrics £7 night

    Not sure when charges start to apply

    One water tap on, low level waste disposal for grey and black water

    The site overlooks the sea, dog friendly, not much open but that suits me, 2 small local shops open

    We have just walked to Smoo Cave, apparently the largest entry sea cave in UK, and free to walk into, well worth the 2 mile round trip

    No Aurora, it was always a long shot, saw a post yesterday where it has not even been seen in Sweden yet this year

    I have a Vodafone dongle which gives fair signal, but opted for a pay as you go Highland Wifi option, unlimited use and really good download speed for £5 / day, bit pricey but only paying £7 for the pitch and having spent £200 for fuel to get here does it really matter?

    From their web site looks like Highland Wifi have seen a market, they are covering about 20 isolated sites that don't offer wifi themselves, if you stay for a week or more it gets quite good value, if you lived near it is only £100 / year!! I think you can use it anywhere they operate, so pretty good if you were away for a few weeks, would cost about £30 / month from memory
