Reviewer: Mummymax 2 reviews from this member

Site situated in beautiful location on the beach. Good play area for kids including games room(requires updating), tennis court(needs attention) & putting for kids. Facilities in main caravan park very good, however as we had pitched in the tour area, the showers block was not very clean, and no facility to wash dishes ( good 10 mins walk to main dish washing area). Would strongly advise to be well stocked with food and drink, as nearest shop is 14.5 miles ( camp does have own shop, but not well stocked with food &drink), All in all we had a good time, but the web page looks better than the actual site.

We found that site to be very special and tranquil. The four touring spaces are right on the beach and the views of Jura and Islay are outstanding.

We found the facilities to be very clean and modern. The owners are very helpful and polite and they pretty much leave you to do your own thing.

I would suggest that if you are coming to the site to ensure that you have everything you need as the nearest shop is in Tarbert (13 miles away).

It was great to see families, parents, kids and grannies alike out playing on the football fields and putting greens etc. Very family friendly. We will be back

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.

Reviewer: Vintagevan 4 reviews from this member

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.

Reviewer: Stewarty 6 reviews from this member

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!
