Reviewer: Trevor + Jo 72 reviews from this member

We had driven for 525 miles to get here and the welcome we received was far from warm. The greeting was very matter of fact and indifferent to whether we stayed or not.

However, we requested a pitch without electric and were directed to a secluded grassy area right on the beach front, away from all other campers. For this we paid £21 for 2 adults and a tent. The view across to Jura was breath taking and the shower facilities were excellent, possibly some of the best showers around. The drinking water runs brown! Site wide wifi and a shop/café/games room at the entrance with several invites to regular worship opportunities! We declined and didn't use the café or shop.

Nearest shop was the Co-Op in Loch Gilphead, about 30 mins drive. There was a Michelin star restaurant just down the lane but you will need to book and you will be charged accordingly.

Otters swim up the coast in front of the tent and we sat all day just looking out to sea, watching the wildlife. Fantastic.

As a final note of warning, as soon as a Westerly picks up, there is little shelter at the front. So, despite the initial reception, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay

Wonderful views and location. We stayed for two nights in May. The views of Jura and the sunsets were fantastic from our pitch on the waters edge. We did not use the shop or the café on site. We did eat at the Kilberry in on both nights. It is very good but quite small so you need to book.

The ladies shower facilities and washing up area on the main site need some tlc.

I would definitely go back but would opt for the camping field where the shower block was more fit for purpose.

We spotted lots of seals, dolphins and deer

Stayed her for 1 night in a motorhome. The site was chosen purely to allow us to eat in a local restaurant and I'm so glad I chose it! We had a fabulous pitch almost on the beach helped by the fact it was 22 degrees with pure blue skies and sunshine. The facilities were fabulous with amazing showers and always clean. Site is huge but well spaced out and run by Christians with no sale of alcohol on site but you can bring your own. There are no shops within about 12 miles so bring everything you need although in season there is a cafe that sells breakfast, lunch and dinner and a site shop although we didn't use either. And the reason for the visit was to eat at The Kilberry Inn which although a little expensive was well worth it but do book in advance as I had as fully booked on the night of our visit.

Other than the site shop and cafe there are no shops etc within 15 miles so be prepared and have everything you need or make sure you know the opening and closing times of the shop and cafe when you check in. The kilberry inn looked very expensive so we didn't go.

I walked up to the cafe for a coffee and breakfast at 8:30 but it didn't open till 9:00, I didn't wait, we packed up and headed to Tarbert for a hearty breakfast but I would have preferred to spend my money on site and support the business. Also important to know you can only get a takeaway from 6pm, we didn't know this, we didn't bring plates etc but it was fine eating very good food from plastic containers.

The site, location, views, facilities are very good and well worth a visit. Three fridges and a microwave for campers to use in the wash up room, I didn't know this before I arrived.

This was my first attempt at camping and I chose the site for its previous reviews, facilities and location, I wasn't disappointed and the weather was a great bonus as we were right on the seafront on a perfect pitch.

I think the site has many regulars and I'm likely to become one.

The site is in a beautiful beach location, looking over onto the Paps of Jura, a 2. 5hr drive from Glasgow (the drive alone is worth it). The last 30mins are on single-track roads.

The pitches are all a decent size, and all come with electric hook-up. The toilet/kitchen facilities are excellent (there is even a fridge for campers to use).

Music (radios, speakers etc. ) is banned on site, so there are no rowdy young campers. You are also permitted to build camp fires on the beach.

There are plenty of play areas and facilities to keep children entertained.

The owners are outwardly 'Christian', and organise a Sunday Service for those interested. They do not sell any alcohol on site, so make sure you bring it with you. The nearest shop is in Tarbert.

Second stay on this beautiful, friendly, peaceful site. The views and sunsets from the tent field are just amazing and my son (7) spent hours pottering on the beach. We were also able to hire a bike for him and because the site is so quiet and friendly he was able to ride around on his own to visit the play area or shop. My partner and I swam in the sea at every opportunity from the bigger beach that is just a couple of minutes' stroll away.

Washing and washing up facilities are good: clean, well-lit, plenty of hot water. A problem with the boiler happened one morning but was fixed really quickly. The little shop on site is packed full of useful supplies and food basics and the cafe is great for meals right through from breakfast to fish and chip supper, or to just sit in with a cuppa if the weather is inclement.

The one drawback is also part of the appeal - the very long single-track road to reach the site has to be negotiated if you want a trip out somewhere. We did go out more this year than the previous one because the weather was more mixed and staying on site all day every day not such an attractive option. It is a tiring drive to maintain a reasonable speed but also stay alert to what might be coming round the next bend. However, we managed to visit Inverary, Crarae Gardens, Auchendrain Township, the Isle of Gigha and Kilmartin Glen without mishap. Gigha is really worth a visit - hire a bike when you get there and don't miss the Twin Beaches.
