Location, Location, Location. This has it in spades. It's not easy to get to, which ever way you approach it is 15 miles of windy single track road with passing places, but the drive is worth it. Restaurant on site plus small shop selling all essentials. Sunset over the Paps of Jura. Idyllic. Very child friendly and great service.

If you want a campsite to escape to and forget all your worries, then this is the place! It is situated at the end of a 14 mile single track road where you get the most amazing views you could ever wish for. We arrived late on a Sunday afternoon and found the office to be locked so we decided just to pitch up anyway and sort it out in the morning. We found the campsite which is separate from statics and we were the only ones there.

Positives: We were the only ones there! Stunning scenery, 5 star toilet and shower facilities which have recently been added with sensor touch showers which were roasting. Great indoor washing up area with a working fridge and great for hiding from the midges (not in the fridge)! Fantastic beach walks, small shop and cafe on site. Various unused leisure activities available, tennis court, putting and bowls.

Negatives: The evil midge which actually curtailed our stay. We had to jump out our tent and make a run for the beach in our pyjamas to escape them!

Overall, an escape from reality and if you can beat the midge you are better than us and we are Scottish!

This campsite is set in stunning scenery. It is quite remote, 14 miles from nearest shop(the site has a shop with basics). The site consists mainly of static caravans with a field for tents and motor homes. The camping field has about 30 pitches all clearly marked out. For me this was the only downside. The pitches were very close together BUT the campsite operates a strict policy of quiet after 11pm and silence after 12pm. It was the quietest campsite I've ever stayed on. The toilet block has very recently been up dated and has bathroom fixtures and fittings that you would usually find in a bathroom showroom. Very nice. However facilities only cleaned once a day but saying that the ladies was never dirty or out of loo roll which was not my son and husbands experience of the gents. Alcohol consumption is allowed on the site but you are not allowed to wander around drinking and you are asked to not swear either (probably why it was so quiet). There was a kids club organised in the morning and an activity in the evening such as a bonfire on the beach or midnight walk. There were lots of families about and the kids had lots of freedom. The camping field is literally a few feet from the beach and the scenery is stunning, overlooking Jura and Islay.

This campsite is in a most beautiful place. It caters mostly for statics. It has a campers field for tents. Touring vans only have a few spaces so are soon booked up. Where I was, there were spaces for only four vans or large tents - although they were in a great place by the beach. I noticed the odd other tourer dotted about here and there but they looked as if they were there on a seasonal basis.

Lots of positives - the area is very picturesque and peaceful; there are daily activities set up by the owners for kids and adults; the cafe and bar looked good although I didn't use them; the shop provides essentials and this is very useful as there are no shops within 14 miles.

The main negative is that tourers (and tenters) basics are not well provided for. The chemical toilet emptying site was blocked and dirty; the area where you dispose of 'grey' water didn't have any working taps that you could wash the container after emptying. The toilet/shower area (can't comment on men's) was just about OK

Would I return? Probably not unless I was sure that basics for tourers and tenters was a whole lot better.

Reviewing this site for the second time. Once again we love the site but the toilets and showers are poor. We were there for 3 days and the toilets were not cleaned once. This was proven by the soiled toilet paper which remained on the floor throughout our visit.

Great site, great location but fails on creature comforts. Nice walking in a lovely area. Be prepared for the single track 14 mile drive however deer and seal can be viewed in the wild during this.

We've just returned from our second holiday at Portban. We had pre booked our pitch (pitch number 18) which had an electric hook up and brilliant views across to the the Isle of Jura. We were pleased to see that the pitches are now clearly marked out (we paid extra for a 'large' pitch as our tent is pretty big). Really glad we had booked as it was torrential rain on leaving home and we almost changed our mind about going at all. SO glad we went though.

The campsite itself is pretty basic but the views are to die for. The toilet block is basic and only cleaned once a day. It was very quiet when we were there, (only 3-4 tents) probably because the weather was putting people off. However we were lucky and only had one day of showers.

Most nights we had a fire on the beach (there was even a pile of wood provided this time). Shop has the basics, but no alcohol so bring your own.

The site is a Christian site however there is no pressure to join in. They have recently begun to do curry nights on a Saturday. We missed this but I heard it had been good food.

We had a nice day out to Tarbert, nice fish and chips at the harbour. Highly recommend the site if you want peace and quiet in stunning scenery. In fact I am almost reluctant to post such a glowing review as this site is such a wee gem!
