Superb site. Easy to find. Down a long single track lane to the site. Very welcoming. Large grass pitches. Fantastic views and lots of wildlife - saw 2 Otters on the beach.

Rachel does a Takeaway on Friday & Saturday evening. Kintyre scallops and chips to die for. Shop well stocked and you can order newspapers.

Springbank distillery in Campeltown is a must to visit. Will definitely return - preferably when it isn't stormy! Thought the van was going to blown over one night.

Even after all the rain we had an amazing sunset over Gigha. Ferry to Gigha is about 1 1/2 miles away but awkward to walk to.

We arrived the day after a storm and the site was immaculate. We are a large touring caravan and were given a lovely pitch near to a water tap and views to Gigha & Jura that were stunning.

We were lucky to benefit from a heat wave. The site was clean and quiet with a well stocked basic shop. Whilst the facilities are not new this is made up for by the welcome and help one receives from the Camp site owners and staff.

We loved watching the bird life including a pair of goldfinches feeding off the wild grass seed on the edge of the dunes.

This site is a must if you enjoy beach activities and the quiet of the countryside in wonderful scenery. We will be returning.

Campsite is in a beautiful location with fantastic views to Gigha and Jura. Beaches and campsite spotless and camping area mostly flat and grassy / mossy underfoot.

Very welcoming management and staff, who couldn't have been more helpful. Shop on site well stocked with day-to-day supplies. Small swing park near the tents, so kids (2 and 6)were kept entertained while we got set up.

Toilet block small, but clean and tidy, and a mop and bucket provided so you could clean the shower area before use, if required.

Only two shower cubicles, but they were spacious with a decent amount of 'dry' room to get kids towelled and clothed without dropping stuff in a wet shower floor. Showers 1 for a decent amount of time, and nice and hot.

Only word of advice is that the site fairly exposed to wind (name gives it away!), and as the ground underfoot is sandy, we had some trouble pitching and keeping the tent pegged down in the fairly high winds - would recommend heavy duty pegs if in any doubt about weather conditions.

Saying that, the owner offered to allow us to relocate our tent after a particularly blustery night, and I believe had assisted a number of other campers.

Nice family campsite, would recommend.

This was our second trip to Point Sands, in a group of over 20 people, our last visit was August 2010.

We stayed in a tent, however, within our group we had a caravan, two motorhomes, tents, and last year a trailer tent. We found the site and access road to be perfectly suitable for all.

We brought our boat in August and were able to launch it from the beautiful beach using our 4x4 - and when the clutch disintegrated while bringing the boat ashore the Point Sands staff very quickly sourced a tractor to pull the 4x4, trailer and boat out.

On our recent trip we were met with gale force winds on our first night, so severe that two of our tents were destroyed and had to be skipped. Again, staff were super helpful and the morning after organised for the now 'homeless' members of our party to stay in one of the static caravans, which they had available, at a very agreeable rate. Due to the force of the wind that carried on over the weekend one very kind resident (George, I believe) on the static caravan side of the site offered to let remaining tents camp in his garden - what a star!

We had a super trip over to the Isle of Gigha, you can walk to the ferry along the beach in half an hour or so but there was plenty parking available at the ferry terminal for us too. The Achamore Gardens are well worth a visit and the The Boathouse does a good panini and half pint of Peroni!

The site was full but at no time did we feel it so. The toilets and showers are nothing fancy but certainly ample for a campsite - clean and light. The shop has everything you should need - although you should bring your own alcohol and favourite brand of cigarettes, if required! There's a wee shop in Tayinloan, but Campbeltown and Tarbert are each about 40 mins away too.

We were also allowed a small camp fire on the beach - which we think makes the whole camping experience!

All in all, Point Sands is a great experience. We will be back!

Had one night on the site, it is badly in need of updating! we found the charges far too high. Some of the play equipment broken, only one shower working in ladies(very low doors) and a charge of 1 to use, although cleanish needs seriously updating!

Yes the area is fabulous but facilities need to be also, for the prices charged. We found the Cara Cafe to be not a Cafe but a metal storage container ! not really what we were expecting.

We use a lot of campsites and for the price it was not good value for money. Sorry to have to say these things but we were very disappointed and will not be returning.

Site fairly quiet when we stayed. Took a pitch by the beach without electric (16 without elec but you have to pay for showers so fairly expensive when other sites in area 15 with elec and showers incl).

As said before toilets / showers very dated, they were clean but cant imagine how they cope with more than a few people.

Lady in reception super friendly and helpful. Has a wonderful little shop which is well stocked.

The Kintyre Way passes through the site so you can walk in either direction along the beach.

Overall a nice site in a great position - with new facilities will be a really great site.
