This was our second visit to this site as we went last year for a week & on that basis booked one of the cabins plus a tent pitch for two weeks this year.

The site is very well maintained, toilets/shower block cleaned daily & the cabin was excellent with lots of room. We took various kayaks plus an inflatable/outboard with a 17ft boat that we moored in the river for use when the tide was in.

The beach is only a 100 metres from the cabins & touring pitches look straight onto it. Lovely & quiet with nice families who seem to go year after year. Our kids (10, 12, 13) asked if we could go next year for 3 weeks they'd enjoyed it so much.

The beach is very safe. Campbeltown is about 15 miles away with a Tesco/Co-op for the 'big' shop but there's a well stocked shop for basics in the village with freshly baked bread & cakes plus a few nice places to eat out.

Colin the site owner is a star & is about quite a lot if you need anything.

We're already planning for next year & wouldn't hesitate to recommend this site to anybody.

My son and I stayed here for two nights, we had two small x two man tents. Cost 42. 80 in total for the two nights. We didn't need a hookup but didn't see any in the tent field right at very back of the site where we were.

I saw larger tents in some of the bigger pitches in other areas of the site with hookup.

When we were there the touring caravans and some static vans had all the prime locations.

Good clean loos, showers and lots of hot water.

Nice walk into village along beach, then footpaths along side of fields. A nice walk takes about 20 - 30 mins but would not be recommended in the dark. There is another route going back the way you come into the site, turn right and walk along the road, we didn't go this way on foot but I think it would take a similar time.

The paths go through fields where cattle roam freely, there was a bull in the last one but he had other things on his mind and didn't bother with us.

I could only find one hotel with a pub the others were only licensed, so you would have to be having a meal to get a drink, one hotel wanted 23. 50 for two courses.

We were unlucky though, the hotel with the public bar had a wedding taking place on the saturday and the public bar was closed and only to be used by the wedding party.

To summarise I don't think we will go back, it is ideal for families having a beach close by and the kids seem to fly around the site all day on there cycles. So beware, especially on the narrow path to the loos lined by tall bamboo.

We really liked this site. The facilities were very good and we were allocated a pitch overlooking the beach

Colin was very helpful when our gas regulator failed and found us details of a local person who got the gas going again

We found some nice walks although the weather was not good for the two days we were there so could not go too far

Good lunch at the Carradale hotel was much enjoyed as we thought we would be eating cold food until the gas was sorted!

This campsite was exceptional in so many ways! We stayed with our daughter(9) in one of the log cabins and our three boys (11, 11, 13) stayed in a tent nearby.

From the first phone call Colin the owner of the site was brilliant. We took a small boat with us that Colin launched & recovered for us at the end of the holiday, we were able to moor this next to the site & subject to tides were able to use it everyday.

The cabin was very well equipped & well maintained with lots of room inside & out for all our gear. Comfy bed, hot water & we didn't use all of the free (7) electric that was provided on arrival.

The boys tent was in a lovely area nearby sheltered by a stand of bamboo. The toilet/shower block was immaculate & cleaned daily.

The beach was clean & very safe only 2 minutes walk from the cabin, most tourers were close to the beach but there seemed to be lots of space. People were very friendly throughout on what was a lovely quiet site.

We're going back next year!

This was the second time at this site and it is excellent. Close to the wonderful beach and nice walks.

It is in an out of the way location and can be difficult to get to. We have travelled the east coast road and it is very narrow and tight.

Very welcoming at reception, the toilet facilities are very good.

There is a shop in the village that sell most things, and a van comes around every morning selling newspapers.

We would recommend this site to any.

We have stayed on this site twice and love its location and the walks around.

The site is a stone's throw from the wonderful beach and is well laid out. There are some pitches with sea views but these get booked up early. The facilities are great and the warden is very friendly and helpful.

We stayed for a week and didn't move the van once as we found enough to do in and around the site.

There is a visitor centre opposite the entrance drive with a cafe and small museum. There are some walks from the centre which offer some spectacular views. The walk along the beach from the site round into Carradale is also recommended.

The shop in Carradale is adequate and the pubs within walking distance are nice enough for a drink though couldn't say what the food is like.

When we were there the river mouth was netted by biologists monitoring the fish and this made for a great spectacle for us and the kids.

We visited the site before in September the previous year and went to the Waterfoot duck race. It was great fun but wouldn't recommend sponsoring a duck and 10 a throw!

We will definitely be back to the site as it is one of our favourites in a great location.
