Reviewer: Djasja 2 reviews from this member

Lets start this at the beginning - booked via email and had a few problems with the form which the lady was very helpful in sorting out, and kindly allocated the pitch we really wanted (number 2) after a cancellation (before this we couldn't book the whole 7 nights) So first impressions where excellent.

We arrived and where shown to pitch by the lovely husband and recycling etc was explained. He later came over to check all was ok. It is also worth saying on the day of packing the tent we couldn't find most of our tent pegs and couldn't find any in local shops but he lent us some - so big thanks (we rung up before hand)

We really enjoyed our stay, its a nice small site and you walk out your tent onto the beach. We were blessed with 6 days of good weather the one rainy day we went to Gigha and walked to the gardens, they where lovely and well worth the walk and the little pub there is amazing, great value and lovely food. Most of our time was spent on the beach, we had a sit on top kayak which pretty much the whole campsite used. I used to paddle out to the rocky outcrop (quite a distance so be safe) large birds land here and seals bask in the sun, they also swan around my kayak and popped up to keep an eye on me, they swam under me and it was amazing to be so close to them in the wild.

My husband informs me his showers where lovely and warm, I have to admit that I never had a good shower experience (although I do know these have been upgraded now) the water would be hot for a very short time then you would hear the boiler cut out and you would need to wait for it to work again. Especially a problem as I was trying to wash a 3 year old as well. The showers where spotless and cleaned often.

The only bad point about this site, is that the owners can at times come across rather badly. While they are rightly working hard to keep the site clean we felt they crossed a line at times (several campers commented on this) when a wrapper from the beach blew under our car she came rushing over to tell us off in a rather sharp manner! Constant reminders to pick up our dog pooh - we have NEVER not picked up after our dog and I just felt she was a little over bearing. Watching to make sure you recycle, and that you do this and don't do that. One of our guide ropes was 1 inch over a 'line' which you couldn't see, and we where told off.

We used the games room and the pool table 'stole' our money so my husband went to get it opened - to which we got told we did it wrong and it WAS our fault, hardly customer service.

Having said the above we are planning to go back this year so it wouldn't put me off it just took the gloss off so to speak

The little village shop was very very well stocked and the owner very helpful

We didn't have a problem with the road noise, yes its there and the road is busy but its hardly the M25 and we just filted it out.

This is a lovely little site with all you need (water, showers, loos and the beach) Campbeltown is AWFUL and the hotels are like something out of the 70s! the 2 hotels 2 miles up the road where nice though (so our neighbours told us) But campeltown does have a tesco and coop for your food needs. The owl centre was excellent and my daughter loved it - especially the display and the staff where great.

We made friends with the people next door who had a lovely Conway folding tent but lost there email which was upsetting :-(

If the owners would just 'chill' a little it would be 100% but I would rate it 85% at present.

We are going back this summer so we shall see whats its like again

Have just spent 2 weeks at this site and thought it was fantastic, the toilets were kept clean, but spoiled on occasions by kids being allowed to go in and out the showers and left the floor wet, even though the owners leave a mop etc to dry the floor. There is a games room with pool table(50p) and table tennis table(free), the games room could be doing with being plastered over and get rid of the old doors etc patching the walls, then a good coat of white emulsion to brighten it up, the laundry is well equiped for campers and there is use of a fridge freezer for campers too. The owners are a lovely couple and always had time for a chat when passing. The local shop 3 min walk away sells absolutely everything and the owners are really friendly. There is also a reception area with folders made up with information on places to visit, menus from local hotels etc there is also a large selection of books for guests to read and information on ferry times etc, we felt that the owners have worked hard to make sure you get the most out of your stay there. We will certainly be back to this site.

The facilities. Dire need of upgrading, very dated, I don't like showering with wood lice, the windows are rotton. This is an old portacabin been made up into facilities but needs a major overhaul.

The access to the beach. Not good, self made access watch out for the kids, elderly, needs a proper set of steps put in.

The road noise. You wont find a campsite closer to a main road than here. Needs a proper fence.

Now to the good bits

Site owners are very helpful and a nice couple

The views across to the islands of Gigha and Jura are awesome on a nice day

You will see seals on the rocks here and at high tide they even sneak up to the beach edge to stick a head out. Brillant

Laundrette and games room is across the road

Halfway between Tarbert and Campbeltown

So the big question is would we return: If the facilities were improved probably.

Just come back from a week in our caravan here,what a lovely little site, beautiful views, great owners,peaceful and relaxing and lots of wildlife to watch.It was a long trek from Wiltshire in one day but definitely worth it. The seals followed us every evening on our walk with the dog keeping an eye on us, they were gorgeous . We certainly recharged the batteries here and will make the long trek north again as soon as I can book it off work!

Just returned from a weeks stay at Muasdale. Adrian and Alison (owners) were very friendly and we were shown our seaside pitch. Only about 10 pitches are directly next to the sea.

The toilet block is small and basic but spotlessly clean and a lot of effort has been put into recycling etc and the adjacent road was no problem for us.

We took a lot of provisions with us however the local shop just a few minutes walk away was a treasure trove of bits and pieces inc fresh and frozen meat, milk eggs etc etc and beer.

The weather was excellent all week and this just added to our enjoyment of this peaceful site although a few midges did appear.

This is a great site for touring the area including the islands which are so easy to reach by ferry and very reasonable costs.

There are a couple of hotels about 4 miles south which serve food and drinks, we ate at the Argyll Hotel which was excellent.

The site does what it says on the label, peaceful with great views.

We have only just returned from this lovely site, and I wish we were still there! It is in the most perfect location, if you`re in a tourer or tent it`s not possible to be any nearer to the beach and sea.

The position of this site was the main attraction for us as each touring pitch faces the sea and the isle of Islay. During our stay we encountered the most stunning sun sets every evening.

It was a Jem Just watching the seals & various seabirds that vist the area.

Lovey Beach but spoilt by Dogs XXXX On beach.

Very tiring drive to the site from our home as it was along Journey, But well worth it on arrival.

The village shop was very good has all the essentials but only accepts cash.

Toilet block very basic but kept spick & span only critisim was having to wash the insets out of the shower tray before showering, but thats camping for you.

Very peaceful & relaxing best stress busting site we have been on in 20 years of caravanning.

Best small caravan site ever. Well done Adrian & Alison Clements site owners.
