Spent 1 night here during August Bank Holiday as a last minute thing to take advantage of the predicted nice weather! Lovely site, has everything you could need with regards to washing, showering etc.

Tent pitches right on the shoreline, fantastic sunset and breeze keeps the midgies away! Storm pegs were recommended, but we didn't need them.

Beach is fantastic, can walk for miles and hardly see a soul, the dogs loved it! Very long drive for us for one night (145 miles each way), but we'll definitely be back again when we have more time!

Only drawback is there is limited things for kids to do if staying more than a night unless they have good imaginations and love the beach. I must be a big kid as I could explore rockpools all day and not get bored!

As said before don't be put off by static vans they really are no trouble, if anything they add a bit of security to the site. The facilities are dated but work fine. Views are indeed stunning. The site has a very relaxed feel, even though our pitch was next to the family from hell. Campbelltown is very tired but has a good sized Co-op and a expensive Esso garage.

Just one beef, why do some people, of such a beautiful country dump building rubbish on the beach, just cannot get my head round it? If you've toured Scotland before I wouldn't recommend the long drive here, the area doesn't have a great deal to offer. That said at 16 per night a steal.

Spent 2 fantastic weeks on this site. Weather was not the best but, did not let it spoil the fun. Site is quiet and if you are looking for somewhere to relax, this is the place.

Fantastic setting, looking out over the sea, some fantastic sunsets and even weather is not so good, brilliant scenery. Not a lot for the kids to do but, if like mine, they like playing on the rocks and on the sand, they will love it.

Nice place nearby to learn body boarding, details on site, and perfect beach to do it as well.

The owner Anne, is always around keeping the place in good condition and always has time for people. Clean toilet and shower block with hot water and always clean.

Only down side, if you need to launder your clothes, you have to go to Campbell town. 10 miles away but, you can leave your clothes safely in the launderette while you shop.

It was well worth the 7 hour drive to get there and will definitely be back again.

What a wonderful little site! A real find - but. You need reasonable weather!

Fantastic level pitches, with electric, all about 10 paces from the beach with glorious views of the Isles of Islay and Jura when the mist an drizzle disappear.

Sea Otters and Seals abound, we watched both frolicking in the sea from our caravan window most mornings.

This really is the best getaway from it all site with a wonderfully friendly and helpful owner (Anne) and a LOT of extremely friendly repeat guests. Says it all really :-)

On the downside we found it to be a little too isolated for our taste - I suspect this was exacerbated by the appalling weather we encountered. Not unique to the Kintyre Peninsular but the whole of the UK sadly - blame the peksy Jet Stream.

Lovely site in equally lovely location. Tent campers - do not let static vans put you off!

These are confined to one area at rear of site and tent/tourer pitches are along the beach front with stunning views. As others have mentioned this coast does tend to be rather windy so make sure you are prepared for this.

Toilets and showers were free and clean with plenty of toilet roll, liquid soap and hand dryer. Free hair dryer in ladies.

Outside dish wash had plenty of hot water but really could be doing with canopy.

Excellent value at 16 per night including EHU - no extra charge for Bank Holiday weekend

The site owner was very welcoming and friendly.

I am almost reluctant to tell you all how utterly wonderful this site is. I want to keep it just for me!

I will quickly get the 'Negative, but totally easy to over look and not care due to the amazing views and atmosphere of the place-points'

No play park for kids, but mine were happy to play with the children on site (kids 9 and 5)

One sink for dishes, and not covered in anyway, open to the elements, but with this, you get to see the amazing views.

Showers are one temperature, and it is (so my hubby says) cold to get dried as there is no heating.

Ok, so here I go, Anne who owns the site is so very accommodating, and will leave a plaque for your reserved space if you have booked.

If not, you take a spot, and she will come see you for fees, normally around five o clock ish.

Spaces are very ample and the ground drained very well plenty of EHU, and small well maintained campfires allowed.

Stunning views over the islands of Cara, Gigha, Jura, Islay and Ireland.

Beautiful sandy beach from the site, where you can walk the two miles to Bellochaunty for a meal in the local hotel.

Rocky beach in front of the touring pitches, fantastic to hear the waves crash in.

Also, here, you will see otters, seals and dolphins at least twice on your stay ( nearly every day on a two week stay)

Campbeltown has a Tesco and Co Operative, but not much else.

Showers are hot, and free, push button.

No place to wash clothes, but a laundrette in Campbeltown.

Glenbarr is a mile walk away, and here you will find a hidden gem.

'The Watering Can', go there, try it!

Everyone is friendly, and quick to help in anyway.

We stayed for two delightful weeks, and booked for three weeks in the summer before I left!

Go to Gigha, first trying a bacon roll in Big Jessie's at the 'terminal', but spend time either walking or cycling round Gigha, lovely island, strangely warmer than the mainland!

Killegruer Caravan site has a little place in my heart, a place that makes me smile on memory and has me longing to go back!

If you go with tent or awning, strong guy lines and storm straps a must!
