We had a wonderful week at this very quiet site. Firstly, it's right next to the beach - step out of the van and within a few paces the beach starts. Secondly the views - looking over to Islay and Jura, especially in the evening (we were facing west). Thirdly, the birds - if you enjoy watching birds you'll see plenty. Fourthly, the site owners were very welcoming and helpful. Toilet block exceptionally clean.
Our best day involved taking our bikes and crossing over to Gigha (by ferry). Wonderful sands, sparsely inhabited.
Saddell Bay on the east coast was worth a visit and if you're a Paul McCartney fan then you'll recognise the bay where the 70s song, Mull of Kintyre, was filmed.
Warm welcome from both Alison and Adrian, both friendly people who are there if you need them.
Pitched up our motorhome, stunning sea/beach views. Campsite was full, showers, toilets, washing up facilities spotless and clean with plenty of hotwater.
I am not a shower person but I have to say the shower room is large, with a large shower tray and plenty of elbow room, an excellent large shower head with lots and lots of hotwater. We did not experience any queing for any of the facilities.
The site has one of the largest play areas for both children and adults - the beach! We spent many hours spotting the different wildlife, seals, oyster catchers, northern dippers, eider ducks, every type of seagull, cormorants etc it was wonderful. Not to mention the many rabbits which inhabit the area.
You could see across to the islands of Gigha and Arran and the ferryport for each is approximately 5 miles away.
Within the village is a local shop which stocks everything you can imagine. The owner and his wife were very helpful. The shop is open from 6.00am - 5.30pm.
There is a local bus to Campbeltown and Tarbert with the bus stop just outside the campsite. We found the locals that we met very friendly. Infact one local kindly gave us a lift into and back from Campbeltown.
We did not notice the traffic on the main road as we were too busy watching the activities out of our motorhome window.
All in all this site was everything we wanted and we would recommend it to our friends.
We stayed here for one night. We'd been wanting to visit this site for a couple of years and we weren't disappointed. The weather wasn't great for our visit, but still managed to get a sunset. It was great to sit in the van and be able to see the seals lying on the reef - wonderful!
We were pitched right next to the beach and it was great to lie in bed and listen to the waves.
The facilities were spotlessly clean and Alison made us feel very welcome.
The site is right on the road and there are lorries trundling past, so not completely peaceful, but just focus on the sea, waves, seals and sunsets! Lovely!
Arrived on the Friday afternoon of the Royal Wedding. Had not booked or ever been here before. As the site was busy, Adrian let us have a look at a pitch slightly behind the other campers but still with electric hook up and stunning view of sea and islands. It was near the road but never felt obliged or pressured to take pitch.
£16 per night including hook up is truly a bargain at this site. The toilets, free showers and washing up area are nothing short of immaculate. No charge for use of fridge or freezer.
As others have said lots of information on site as about what to do, where to go etc. We also liked the wildlife board and the table tennis!
Please disregard previous reviewer's comments about rules! Asking people to keep the site clean and tidy and to make sure dogs are on leads and children accompanied in toilets have made the site what is - fantastic!
The wedding cake from Alison was a lovely touch and tasted delicious. We'll definitely be back.
