Accommodation near Scrabster..Thuron?

Anyone know of a good place (cheap) to stay (pref camping) near to where the ferry departs?
It leaves pretty early and dont want to stay too far away!
Nice one!

roughed it

i got to scrabster late in the evening around 10pm and then as it was a nice evening i rolled out my matress and sleeping bag and slept on the pavement outside the port building! there was also people sleeping inside (cyclist's and hikers). another idea for you and it saves putting your tent away at silly hours of the morning. there are toilets and a snack bar in the morning.
ps- also a pub on the port!
