Reviewer: Frangipaniannie 1 review from this member

Our 4th visit to this wonderful place. Stunning waterscapes, looking at the Paps of Jura; great for dog walking & exploring. Remote, wild and fabulous; campfires on the beach.We've camped in a tent here - the campsite is very basic but right on the beach; a bit midgy in Summer of course. We've also stayed in the static vans, which are great. We always return.

Beautiful situation for 3 or 4 touring vans with hook-up directly on the shore; perfect for launching inflatables and small boats. For some reason touring vans are segregated from tents which have their own field with separate toilets.

The main part of the site is dominated by statics which in places are quite closely spaced, giving a bit of a crowded feel, although it's not too bad where the touring pitches are located. For kids there's a good play area and for adults there's mini-golf and a bowling green.

The main toilets and showers are unfortunately like some sort of unfinished DIY project. The partitions are rough plywood, the doors don't fit and some don't lock properly, and there are no coat hooks or loo roll holders. It may have been late in the season but throughout our 4 day stay the toilets were not cleaned at all, and there was a season's worth of matted hair in the shower plugholes.

The welcome was perfectly friendly but it's in your face that the site is run by evangelistic Christians, who obviously attract many of the same persuasion as tenants and owners of the statics that would be fine but some may find being invited by strangers to prayer meetings in their caravan and random shouts of 'Hallelujah' throughout the day to be odd

The tent site has its own toilet/shower block,which are clean. For laundry you use the main block near the reception. There's plenty for children with a playground, bowls and a little golf course. A beach runs along the length of the site if you have a canoe or dinghy they can be used there. Fires can be lit on the beach on a night for cooking barbecue or for a real campsite atmosphere.

With a tent pitched at the waterside site overlooking jura and islay watching beautiful sunsets over the paps of jura you couldn't ask for more. Seals are a daily site along with deer and if you are lucky otters are about also.

The site has a coffee shop with a pub and post office in the village a mile away. There are supermarkets in nearby towns.

There are too many attractions to list from pre-historic circles to medieval castles, churches and other ancient holy sites.

A drive to loch Tarbert gives you the ferry for a day on Islay, or to Tarbert for a day on Arran. Both giving extra scope for activities in the area.

I cannot fault the site in anyway the staff are friendly and helpful. Just that it can get a little windy at times.

Our 2nd visit here. We love this site. There is a cold water tap in the field for dishes or a big trail up to the main buildings for hot water in a sink. Portakabin toilets are cleanish. Men who clean them give them a lick and a promise! There is a holder for paper towels and a spray for cleaning toilet seat before you use it which they never fill! Proper shower which is free and no push button though not great water pressure. Electric hook ups available.

There is a shop on site and play area, pitch n put, plus a tennis court which is a bit dilapidated for kids. Our kids spent all the time on beach which is about 10 paces from tent. Beach is part sand and lots of rocks which my son loves climbing on. This site is very quiet and relaxing. Opening up the tent in morning to sea view plus Islay and Jura is amazing. On 14 mile single track road to get there we saw 2 grouse, seal, very tame fox who comes right up to car, loads of rabbits and 3 buzzards. Tarbet is about 15 miles further along single track road so coming well stocked up is advisable and saves you having to leave site. Bbq and campfire on beach and a wee glass of wine. Very beautiful and relaxing!

This campsite is lovely,the people are very friendly and helpful and there's a good playarea with football pitch, the beaches are lovely and the kids loved it here.
We were meant to stay for 7 days but due to our tent we left a day early and got a refund no problem for our missed night. The wee shop is well stocked and there's a games room and a library.
The views are fantastic but it can be quite windy at nights.The camping area is spacious and the toilets are poprtacabins and are clean.Its a quiet and peaceful place to visit,i highly recommend it.

Stayed here with our caravan, plus awning, for a week. Perfect weather - sunsets over the Paps of Jura every night. A very good site - not too much noise, even during the Easter holidays. Generally peaceful; we found ourselves sitting around, reading, strolling, cooking, etc. If you are at all nervous towing a caravan this site is probably not for you - winding, hilly single track roads. Tarbet is 13 miles away and there are 2 first class fish shops, one specialising in shellfish. The scallops are to die for!

Site facilities are good: basic but clean toilet block, a few hook-ups (but only 3 directly overlooking the beach), good cafe, good shop, friendly staff. Quite a pebbly beach; plenty rock to clamber over. Walks along the coast from site.

If you and/or the kids need entertainment laid on you will find this site dull. We loved it! We will be back.
