Based on our statistically unreliable sample, men like Point Sands campsite but women are less enthusiastic. For the men it is something to do with pretending they are wild camping, but with all the facilities of a campsite, adjacent to a splendid beach with streams to be dammed, on which fires are permitted and along which runs the 87 mile Kintyre Way. The women noted a missing sink plug in the washing-up area, a lack of instructions for the laundry equipment and an unhealthy aroma from one of the water point drains.

We stayed at Point Sands for one night prior to taking the ferry to Islay from Kennacraig, some 12 miles away. The ferry to Arran from Cronaig is a similar distance from Point Sands and both routes involve passing the only petrol station in the area.

The toilet block, laundry and washing-up facilities were all renewed for 2013, albeit in temporary buildings intended soon to be replaced by permanent structures. All were faultlessly clean and modern. Allowed to select our own pitch, we were well away from the mobile homes and children’s play area with interesting views of Cara, Gigalum and community-owned Gigha, to which a ferry within walking distance runs every hour.

The camp-site shop supplied our limited needs whilst the experienced wardens (also new to Port Sands in 2013) were clearly making strenuous efforts to rectify those aspects of the site on which previous reviewers, and the two women in our survey, commented adversely

Home after our first but certainly not last visit to point sands campsite on the beautiful shores of the mull of kintyre, this is a cracking site with spectacular sea views and all pitches are flat and well kept, on arrival the staff were welcoming and friendly.

We were pitched right on the edge of the beach within 10 minutes after a quick rundown from helpful warden on sites facilities. The site shop was well stocked with with fresh produce and useful items, they even have a cafe serving breakfast/ lunch & dinner menu's, the toilet and shower block looked brand new and was very clean.

I cant say enough good things about this site and the £18 per night for a serviced pitch was well worth it & they even let us stay in our place till 5pm on depart day as the weather was glorious and we wanted to make most of it.

Cheers point sands see you soon.

Beautiful location at lovely sandy beach. Staff and campers all very friendly. Shop well stocked including fresh fruit, vegetables & rolls. Good for walking and touring and ferry connections.

The Elsan disposal was via a drain covered by a metal manhole cover. This was also the only disposal point for grey water. We have not seen this before at other sites and it seemed not the best arrangement for hygene.

The toilet facilities, in Portaloo cabins, while clean & recent, did not seem sufficient for the size of the site.

What a lovely area, views and beach are excellent.

On arrival staff were pleasant and helpful, even offered to show us to our pitch.

Peaceful site even with friendly ducks that seem to own the area!

As site is on the west coast, unfortunately midges came out in evening.

Great place to go touring the Mull of Kintyre and not far to catch ferry to Arran or Islay for day trip.

Nice new play area for the kids looked good.

Site has a small cafe which was unfortunately not open when we were there.

Only down side to site is the toilet block which is rather dated and small.

It is cleaned regularly but still looks slightly in need of cleaning.

Superb location right next to the beach. Very handy for ferry to Gigha. No pub within easy walking distance. It had been raining a lot before we arrived and some of the pitches were a bit soggy and some cars had trouble getting out looking at the ruts left.

Nice little shop with friendly and helpful staff in there. We were having problems with our TV reception and they offered to come to our van to sort it if we still struggled.

Small children's play area.

Downside to the site is that the toilet block is dated and needs upgrading. My wife commented on the the 'wildlife' in there. Only 2 showers in male and female blocks but never had to queue. 20p for a shower and the money lasted for plenty of time (my wife managing to wash her long hair with no problems).

Just back from a wonderful fortnight on this site, fantastic beach very safe for the kids and clean spent many hours crab fishing and collecting shells.

The on-site shop is good and sells most things apart from alcohol so bring your own. The toilet and showers are a bit dated but the managers informed me next year they pulling it down and building a new block, but they are clean and the showers hot.

The owners and the managers are very friendly and I loved chatting to Barbara in the shop every day who greeted me every morning with a lovely smile. We had electric and could just pick our own pitch which was great, only downside is it can be very windy so come prepared with extra pegs.

Have been camping in Scotland for many years and have never seen such beautiful sunsets as I did here, the views are amazing as the whole site looks onto the island of ghiga. Going to sleep every night listening to the waves on the shore was so relaxing and we will have many memories of toasting marshmallows on the beach. This site is certainly 1 of my top 3.
