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!

This site is situated in the most beautiful part of the country, a good mix of countryside and sea. Wildlife and birdwatchers will be in paradise.

The beach is clean and you can walk for miles either side, we pitched one row back from the sea as there were strong winds when we arrived, however the weather settled and we were in paradise.

Its easy to get over to Gigha via the ferry, we took the car and toured the island, the water is so clear, the views were stunning. The site itself was litter free, no hard standings but the ground seemed to drain pretty well.

We did not use the shower block but they did seem clean even if the building was a little dated, a small price to pay for such a wonderful spot.

The owners were great, telling us of when best to spot local wildlife and suggesting walks that we would never have even thought of. There was a kiddies play area, loads of room for kids to have a kick about without bothering anyone.

We will certainly be returning to this little paradise.

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.
