A great site close to the beach.

The owner was very apologetic as we arrived because there was a fault with the hot water and showers were not available - he came round early next day to each pitch to say the showers were back on. All facilities were excellent and the site is very well cared for, some of the holes on the approach road had been filled and it looked as though more work was ongoing.

I would agree about the low water pressure but what's the rush when you're on holiday and the sun is shining?

Take care with the road from Campbeltown but don't let this put you off visiting because the area is well worth it.

We were a bit worried about staying on a large caravan park as we prefer smaller sites, but we couldn't have been more wrong - this is a lovely site and we would definitely return again. Only stayed for one night on a touring holiday, but would have loved to have stayed longer. The owner was there to meet us when we arrived and was very chatty and interested in where we were from. There was a problem with the gas for the showers which could not be fixed until the next day, so we were given money off our stay as well as numerous apologies. Although this is a big site, as mentioned in other reviews it is split into smaller areas of 4-5 pitches making it seem much smaller, as well as one larger area over looking the beach. One large shower block with plenty of toilets so no need to wait. Cant comment on showers as we weren't able to use them, but they looked fine. All very clean. Given a key for access to toilet block - although this was sometimes a pain if we didn't have the key with us - ie washing up, on way back from beach etc. A beautiful beach which was great for our daughter and young border collie who could run for miles. Had to be careful of jelly fish, but also lots of beautiful shells to collect. Not very much in the area, but would love to return for a relaxing week of walking and beach time.

An excellent well run site, toilets very clean, site broken into small bays which makes it feel small and friendly.

A walk into Carradale village along the shore is ideal for the dogs, the Carradale hotel has very good food reasonably priced and the staff are very friendly.

The only minus is the road to the site, main road quite tight and the private road into the site needs to be upgraded.

Saying this it certainly won't stop us from returning.

Great campsite on lovely bay. Had a superb pitch overlooking the bay. Beware the long access into the site with few passing places. We arrived around 1230 and there was a caravan leaving late so a deal of reversing was required! Also, note, low water pressure when filling up van. All that said, it is definitely worth a visit.

Just returned from five nights at this wonderful campsite. Like others have said in previous reviews the 18 miles of interesting single track roads are well worth it once you get there. The views are amazing, the site lovely and peaceful. We had a beach view pitch which was lovely. There are a lot of little secluded areas which also looked very nice. The facilities are kept spotless, and were never busy whilst we were there. Four showers, eight toilets in ladies. Four toilets, four urinals, four showers for men. There is a covered pot washing area, laundrette and plenty of information. We walked to Carradale about 20 mins. Caught bus to Campbelltown 4. 35 return. Lots of lovely walks around the area. We would definitely recommend this site especially if you want peace and quiet 😊 if I had to make a criticism it would be regarding having a key for the toilets, this was an issue if one was in the shower and the other wanted to use the toilet. Maybe two keys per pitch could be issued or number pad.

Not the easiest of sites to get to, but once you are there it is an amazing site. We were lucky enough to get a pitch overlooking the beach for our stay. It was an amazingly quiet site with very little traffic. You must use the eco-friendly toilet flush here and it is lower amp electric on the site. When we were there the weather was very warm and the fridge was working so hard to keep cool it tripped the electric out a few times.

The toilets at the site seem very modern and are kept very very clean. The shower cubicles themselves are massive but you will sometimes need a bit of patience to get the shower to the temperature you want.

There is a large amount of information leaflets in the reception area, or the manager will be able to sign post you to anything particular that you want to do.

You must follow the recommended route when getting to/leaving this site. The road that goes off the other way from Carradale is very narrow and a lot of the passing places are currently closed due to being re-surfaced or as part of the Hydro works which are being done in the area. The recommended route is 14 miles long from Campbeltown and has some tight sections and 14% and 16% gradients with switchbacks. The advice here from me would be to take your time!

The site is an excellent base for exploring Carradale, Campbeltown, Peninver, Machrahanish for seal watching etc.

I would definitely return to this site, it was lovely very much worth the effort to get there. We stayed for 3 nights, but I could very happily have stayed for 3 weeks!
