The Camster Round Cairn can be found beside an unclassified single track road which heads in an almost straight line due north from the A99 near Lybster before emerging on the A882 near Watten. It and the nearby Camster Long Cairn are a little over five miles from Lybster and some eight miles from Watten. A wooden boarded path leads from the roadside to the round cairn, then from it to the long cairn, and then back to the road.

Caithness in the far North of Scotland is certainly full of wonders. The drive North on the A9 takes in some breathtaking scenery into a land littered with ancient archaeological remains and wide open spaces. You get more time to appreciate the things to see around you if you come to stay here a while and visit the local landmarks and attractions such as the Whailgoe Steps. Its peaceful and beautiful and you get frequent exposure to the Orcas and puffins of the coast in their thousands as well as views of the stunning Northern Lights
