Reviewer: Rhydeparker 1 review from this member

We had a truly wonderful stay at Point Sands, which is a very welcoming, family run campsite in a very beautiful location right on the beach. The slightly dodgy weather did not prevent us from having an amazing time here, complete with ferry trip (catch it just up the road) to the stunning island of Gigha for lunch and crabbing in the bay.

The campsite itself is very clean and functional and the friendly wardens looked after us really well and were very helpful, particularly when we were having trouble trying to fill our motor home tank up with fresh water! We were very impressed with the campsite's cafe which serves well-sourced local food and tasted delicious. Our children loved the campsite too, dividing their time between the beach, the play park and biking round in the wooded area.

We shall certainly be back again - there is so much to do in the area which we didn't get round to doing this time. A really huge thanks to Rebecca, Angus and their staff for making our stay so memorable.

We visited in mid August and found this campsite to be a disappointment. The welcome wasn't as friendly as we had expected, the pitch wasn't level and was full of holes.

The shower block was awful as was the dish washing area. There had been an influx of storm flies and there were dead ones everywhere. There were dirty cloths lying in both areas. We were given a code for the shower block, but both doors were propped open. There was a hole in the wall in the dish washing area.

The swings were missing from the playground and the whole place seemed very dated.

I spoke to the owner on the morning after our arrival and she was very helpful and understanding but unfortunately we won’t be going back

Got mixed views about this campsite. Clean and tidy loos, although sometimes lacking toilet paper. £1 for a shower, but needed £2 if washing my hair - this all added up. Good washup facilities.

The location is lovely and we had marvellous weather. Good on site shop with 2 supermarkets in Campbeltown. Not much to do on a rainy day - the cinema in Campbeltown is open evenings and there is also a swimming pool.

I did feel the attitude of some of the site staff was poor as any requests seemed to be difficult, although we thought they were simple.

The biggest downside is there is no stated curfew and groups were noisy well into the early hours. Heard the manager grumble about this, but he had not asked them to be quiet!

Glad we visited and enjoyed, but not sure we'd visit again.

What a great campsite. The staff were excellent, place was very clean (few bugs n cobwebs in dish washing area but you are camping after all). Great location and a brilliant base camp for anyone with outdoor activity or watersport passions. Sunsets and views were beautiful and a lot of places to visit near and afar. Shower and toilet areas very clean with showers £1 for 5 min which was fine. On site shop and little cafe van are fantastic with everything you need and more and is very well priced. Some amazing wildlife there too. Will definitely be going back.

Just spent two nights, just me and my oldest son.

The location is good - I adore Kintyre, and when the weather is good, it's stunning. The beach is nice and sandy, the views are beautiful.

Our pitch was large and level - they have a lot of space to spread campers out on. Unfortunately, they don't really have enough toilets and showers for all the campers. The ladies' ran out of loo roll on our first night, and on our second night, one of the toilets was out of order, so there were only three available. Two showers isn't very many, either. They cost £1, but I can't comment on them further as I just went without since we were really only there one full day.

The on site shop is OK. Plenty of water and beach toys available. They'd told me when I dropped by over a year ago that they were planning to get an off license, but they don't have it, yet.

It's a very child-friendly place, with a playground in the centre of the camping field, and the kids run about and have a lot of fun.

The takeaway catering van ('Cara's Cafe') does very nice food at breakfast, lunch, and dinner time.

Our family had a wonderful and eventful stay at this beautiful site over the last May bank holiday. We arrive with our tent and after a battle with the wind pitched for our four night stay.

The next day however some really bad wind forced us to have to take down our tent.

The owners and managers were wonderfully helpful sorting out a move to a beautiful static caravan. I really cannot sing the owners and managers praises highly enough. They helped so much to sort us out of a tricky situation and then were fantastic with advice and local knowledge of the area.

The site itself was lovely. The woods amazing to explore and a beach to die for ! Our bbq on the beach will long be remembered!

We would recommend this wonderful, peaceful family campsite to anyone.

Finally a trip to beautiful Gigha is a must. We hired bikes and had a great day exploring this beautiful island.

Thankyou to all at Point Sands ! Rachel, your site, staff, location and genuine caring customer service is wonderful!
