This is the second holiday we have had at this site and we can only say it is fantastic. The view on the website is exactly what you get. We had views of seals in the bay, porpoise and a cheeky little otter.

The pitch is on grass and if you are unfortunate enough to have rain it drains well. But even in the rain it is brilliant to watch the weather forming on the horizon or over towards Ireland, Islay or Jura. You can also see Gigha from the site and is well worth a trip.

Toilet block is kept spotless and you always get a warm welcome. Showers are free and hot, no messing with coins and wondering if the water will run out before you are fully rinsed.

If you reserve a pitch you get a little marker with your name on it and pay the pitch fee when you see the owner.

A little gem we only wish it was closer.

We visited this site at extremely short notice and were delighted when we were able to get a pitch for 3 days just prior to Easter. The touring pitches are right on the bank overlooking the sea, with fantastic views both front and back.

The ground was good and firm, and more importantly flat and rock free. Toilet facilities were spotlessly clean, and no charge was made for showers or hair dryer.

The dish washing sink always had boiling hot water, ideal for cleaning enamel camp kit, and the water taps and bin sites were all within easy reach of the tent.

We were blessed with the weather and spent four wonderful days overlooking the sea, watching oyster catchers and even spotted a couple of sea otters sharing a fish on the nearby rocks.

This is an ideal campsite for anyone who just wants to get away. Local facilities are great, with a coffee shop in the local village that is hidden away behind the post office. Great breakfast if you don't feel like cooking. Campbeltown is close by and has supermarkets and a superb little Chinese restaurant for that special evening meal.

All in all, this site was ideally located with superb facilities. Although it got windy on the last night, the ground is firm enough to hold the tent pegs.

The highlight for us was the closeness of the beach to the touring pitch which allowed for us to have a camp fire on the beach within easy access to our tent and car. We will definitely be returning. Our thanks to Anne for a wonderful welcome to Kintyre.

We look forward to camping here again soon.

Awesome location, perks of not having a static is that you get right on the front! Spot was reserved for us with a little peg with our name on it! You are literally on the edge of the beach, lovely and sandy, the odd rocky outcrop. Views across to Jura, saw seals, basking sharks. Village, 30 minutes walk up hill, but pleasant has post office/shop which sold most things. At the back of it was a garden centre with a coffee shop which did meals. Not the prettiest looking camp site, statics, but location made up for it. Toilet/shower facilities clean and sufficient though slightly dated. Outdoor washing up facilities, not covered, but lets you look at sea whilst doing your dishes!

We returned to Killegruer for the third time and it's definitely our favourite site.

The pitches are a really good size now and the beach is bigger and sandy (what have they done?).

There is a new dish-washing sink with boiling hot water and a powerful cold water tap (take care!). The toilets and showers are still sparkling clean. The showers are powerful and nice and hot. There's a free hairdryer. A small information area with book hire.

We had a fire on the beach and the kids played on the sand and looked in the rock pools. Amazing sunsets as usual.

An easy walk to Glenbarr village where there is a PO/grocer(sells everything)/farm shop/garden centre (we bought duck eggs), and a licensed cafe which serves delicious food. There is also Glenbarr Abbey/museum.

Campbeltown is nearby with a new leisure centre, cinema, laundrette etc.

There is also a hotel with bar and restaurant a 2 mile walk down the beach from the site.

Each pitch has it's own beach front and has hook-up (we don't use it) and very reasonably priced. Static caravan owners are very friendly. A windy site but perfect pegging firm soil. A strong tent is recommended. Children's playground is sheltered and consists of a football goal, some tyres and a car; not much but the beach holds enough fun!

A lovely quiet site. The touring caravans and tents are pitched along the front of the site, there are static caravans in the area around the toilet block. We had a pitch with an electric hook-up and the cost was very reasonable.

The beach was a few feet in front of us, and a field with a few cows behind. It was very peaceful, with fantastic views of the sunset. The toilet block was cleaned regularly, and the owner is really friendly. We look forward to returning soon.

The village of Glenbarr is about a mile away and has a farm shop with garden centre and coffee shop.

Just back from what should have been a two night stay. Unfortunately there were strong gusts that snapped our poles. We reluctantly left early in glorious sunshine. The site is small and very friendly. Our two wee boys made friends quickly. We were kindly taken in to Dave's static after our tent collapsed at 1am. He even cooked us breakfast!
The toilet block is spacious and immaculate, with wonderful hot showers. The owners are lovely and we got our money back for the second night.
All touring spots are on a strip next to the beach. The plots are quite small but everyone has their own beach-front. Booking is recommended and the owners stick up a 'Reserved' sign with your name on the plot. It's reassuring to know if you are coming from far away.
We were conscious of the road at first, and the A83 is in sight, but once the tent is up and you're looking out to sea with the sound of the waves, you soon become unaware of it! The beach area next to the tents is quite rocky but you can walk along to a bigger sandy beach. A couple of minutes in the car takes you to a spectacular beach with sand dunes.
We look forward to going back and having a fire on the beach next time.
