Just to add our agreement that this site is lovely.

Clean, tidy, well spaced out pitches. Facilities very clean.

15.50 for 2 people with hookup very reasonable and the little shop on site had a few basics we had forgotten to bring. No shop in the village but Cambletown is only a short drive away and Tesco there sells everything you need.

Try for a pitch with a view over the sea - marvellous looking out over the Paps of Jura. In the village we walked along the sea shore and saw several seals within 20 ft on the rocks.

The owners were really friendly and couldn't do enough to help - but weren't at all intrusive.

The location of the site is one of the best we have found on our travels and the site itself is a real credit to the owners.

We would stay again and highly recommend

Spent 7 days here instead of the planned 5. Our first camping trip, so I can't compare it to other sites. All I can say is, if Carlsberg made camp sites they would all be this good. Pitch size you could put a terraced house on. Toilet/showers always clean, sinks for washing pots with washing up liquid provided, family room with nappies in it. I hope the rest of the sites I visit are as nice as this one. If you do decide to visit here, I bet you will be back, it's that nice.

As far as the midges are concerned that people have mentioned, we only experienced them on the day we were leaving, but that was obviously down to the weather conditions, as we had just spent seven days there midge free.

This is a fantastic site. It has small but adequate and very clean toilets. The Wash up facilities are good as is the Dishwash room. There are lines to dry clothes and a small shop/info room. We had kayaks and managed to get down the river from the site to the sea. Bit shallow in parts but a great expedition for the kids. Very good beaches and seas nearby. You can swim with seals if you are quiet as well. They were in the small coves by the headland about 5 minutes walk away. There are excellent Golf courses if you are into that. Its a quiet site about 15 minutes drive to Campbell town which has everything you need. It does take a long time to get there from most places but you can't have everything. Very cheap as well poss due to its remoteness.

Other reviewers have summed up this site accurately. It is beautifully quiet, spotlessly clean and well kept, by Dave and Chris who are so helpful and friendly. The sunsets are divine and the constant wind keeps the midges away. Tranquil is a word that describes our two week holiday there. We did travel around the peninsula and saw the sights and beautiful scenery, we also took the afternoon cruise to Islay which was very enjoyable if you like boats - which we do!

Mostly though we spent our time on the rocks overlooking the sea watching the cormorants drying their wings, the gannets diving and seals basking in the sunshine - not forgetting the otter. We also saw the otter several times in the stream next to the site. The bird observatory on the rocks in Machrihanish is well worth a visit too. There is one pub in the village that serves good food, but no shops, the nearest are in Campbeltown, which is like stepping back in time - marvellous!

Visited this site for the second time this summer and all I can say is the drive is well worth it! Site is very well looked after. Our kids loved the crazy golf and playing football even when it rained they went fishing in the river at the bottom of the garden.

Beach is a 5 min walk away and is stunning! Campbeltown swimming pool is a must, great value for money we spent a full morning in there when it rained.

Toilets and showers are well maintained and clean. Great to see a warden going round the site a 11pm to ensure the site is all quiet! Kids already asking when we can go back! Kids want to give this site 10 out of 10!

We have just spent 5 lovely days at the site and it is a credit to the owners. The campers caravan is a fabulous idea I only wish other campsites were as considerate, free use of ice blocks, TV and microwave available. Everything was spotlessly clean. I would highly recommend it and we hope to go back in the future.

If you go to the Mull of Kintyre lighthouse be ready for an energetic walk back up the hill! Davaar island worth a visit at low tide, check with the Tourist Information Centre in Campbeltown for safe crossing times as there is only a 6 hour window each day.

Caradale beach worth a visit watch for the small signs for the beach in Caradale village, you drive through a couple of farmers gates but access is allowed and you come to a lovely shallow beach as good as any in the Caribbean.
