We had researched a number of sites prior to travelling to the Mull of Kintyre, we travelled off peak - early April 2011. This one suited us at that point, but we didn't book before leaving because we wanted to see it first. On arrival, just seeing the location was enough - stunning! and right on the beach! The islands of Gigha, Islay and Jura were visible what seemed to be just a stones throw away. We went to see the very friendly owners, Adrian and Alison, and booked for the week, we weren't disappointed.
It's a small site, catering for only a few tents/units, so if you want to be there at peak times, book well in advance. Theres a new small, but adequate toilet/shower/dishwashing block/portacabin that was pristine and kept that way daily by the owners. Theres a small games room and reception at the main building, and visitors are encouraged to notify any wildlife sightings on a white board for the benefit of everyone. One of our main priorities on any holiday is wildlife - and we saw plenty including mink on the rocks 300yds from the site as well as many special birds and other wildfowl.
The village of Muasdale is small with one shop and no pub. That suited us fine.
Overall, we found this to be a great base on the Kintyre peninsular and will use it again.
Warning - if you have kids/teenagers that want modern day entertainment, then this is NOT for you, but if you have kids that want to play on the beach all day every day - book it now.
1. It is just of the main road to Campbletown and therefore noisy especially during busy times and at night (main haulage route). 2. Rules, rules and more rules! 3. Loss of shower water pressure if someone else was running a tap
The very good bits:
1. Fantastic views 2. Right on beach 3. Clean site 4. Good recycling 5. Small site
Fantastic site, though very small, great scenery, only one small thing annoyed me was that, the hairdryer in the ladies block the wire was'nt long enough to see yourself in mirror, where drying your hair,
That aside great site, lovely helpful people, fantastic views, right on the beach, well stocked local shop, about 2mins walk down the road, and campbletown a short drive away, with plenty to do and see.
However there is no wi-fi there as far as I know, that didn't bother us too much
Just returned after having a wonderful week at this site. Everything was perfect, including the weather.
Can we ask for anything better than waking up and wandering onto the beach with the dogs on the beach still in dressing gown and slippers, then back for the first cuppa of the day! Then that's followed by many hours of fruitful exercise looking at the stunning view. I could often see otters eating fish on the rocks offshore among the basking seals, although you need to take your binoculars to see them clearly.
The beach is brilliant, but could do with moving a bit closer, six feet is a long way to walk! It's the cleanest beach I've been on, EVERYBODY was picking up after the dogs!
It's a bit of a climb down to it from the site, must be 18' (LOL!)
The new facilities block is now one of the best I've seen, spacious and spotless.
All in all, a perfect site for a great holiday, I'd love to go back again. Maybe I will, but it's a long way away from home. It's a long way from anywhere, but maybe that's why it's a gem of a place to go.
The owners are extremely friendly and help, not officious in any way, but try to make sure everyone is set up well.
Small compact site situated in a picture postcard location, one step from a lovely clean beach, with fantastic views of Gigha & Islay, lovely sunsets.
Shower/washing facilities modern, clean, & well kept. Also have a small games room table tennis & pool for the kids (big & small), informative advice room, with information on local attractions & events, owners always approachable & friendly. Laundry room & fridge/freezer available to use(very useful for us campers. Small but well stocked & priced local shop in the village, no more than 5 minute walk from site. Would strongly recommend.
