Just home from 2 weeks at Killegruer, we usualy stay at another site close to it for our annual 2 week break but they have stopped campfires on the beach, so thought we would try Killegruer a we love the west coast. We booked over the phone and was told there might not be staff on site when we arrive but to look for our pitch, as we drove into the site we saw our name on the reserved pitch. Doing it this way made things run very smoothly and you don't get that awkward feeling driving round and round looking for a pitch. After a little while the Owner came down to introduce herself, what a lovely lady she is, she runs a great site, and the toilets and showers were kept spotless. The toilets are very spacious with lots of wash hand basins and even though there is only 2 showers in the ladies I never once had to wait.

The shop at Glenbarr (1 mile walk) is brilliant as is the coffee shop and garden centre.

During the 2 weeks we met various families as always some nicer than others and although we never had children with us the kids on site were always being looked out for by other parents. Last week a lovely couple pitched next to us which was great, and today as we left we were ever so grateful for their help, because although we were reluctant to leave Killegruer to come home as we drove out our van decided it didn't want to leave and fell off the hitch as we drove on. Thankfully after a bit of pushing from our neighbours and a stern warning not to show us up like that again, we made it home safely.

Killegruer has the most amazing views from your pitches and last week we spotted some seals and a dolphin. The weather can be bad at times but in our 2 weeks we had mostly sunny ays, in the reviews people say about how it can get really windy there so take a few extra ropes and tent pegs for awnings etc. We will definitely be back along with other family members next year. Thanks for providing this great wee place.

I doubt anyone would get better for their money than what Killegruer offer, 16 a night in the high season for a caravan, 2 adults and EHU and a special offer of 1 free night when you book 7. The sunsets are absolutely gorgeous no wonder most of the people there were regular campers and love to visit this little piece of paradise

Super site, the lovely owner greeted us by name on arrival and took us to a fantastic plot she had reserved for us, within yards of the sea and still gave us the option of another plot if we weren't happy!

Spotlessly clean toilets with plenty of loo paper, spotlessly clean free showers with hot water.

Didn't seem to be a great deal to do around the area but is definitely worth visiting this site when travelling between Arran and Islay.

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.
