We sampled the delights of this site on the last bank holiday weekend in May. Good location, the owners were extremely helpful and the toilet facilities could not be faulted.
Nice walks into town along the beach or through the woods. Not much to Carradale but I suppose that is what makes it so perfect. Peace and tranquility. On the down side although mainly dry the weather was actually Baltic. So cold it helped us decide to buy a caravan. Not the easiest of roads to negotiate whilst towing. Maybe I'll consider it again when I've accumulated a few more miles of towing.

Carradale heaven on earth too me, what an escape from our busy woking lives, have been a visitor for a few years now, my dogs get excited with the mention of Carradale, great site everything I need, lovely owners nothing is too much trouble, lovely neighbours on every visit, great fun meeting others who have braved the long and winding road.I am so glad of the drive because if it was more accessable there would be more chaos.The beach is superb and so is the sea. Like to swim there lovely.Would love tosee thebeach during a storm.Scary I bet.The local pubs hotels have good food and drink.Thank you Carradale for all the memories

Great site nice folk running it. Nice planting of hedges and plants etc and reasonably big flat pitches. The site were very helpful in giving us a plot which was quite quiet as we had young children. Mind you I wish they had warned us about the very rude people with the large Porshce 4x4 who camped right next to us and didnt say anything to us all week including not inviting us to their party which went on until 3 or 3 in the morning and kept me awake. However the site is great, it is right on Carradale beach which you can walk along and you can walk into Carradale from the site. Carradale has a few places to eat out and a shop. There is also a lovely 9 hole golf course with stunning views. We were there two years ago and the bakery in Carradale bakes the most wonderful bread and rolls and cakes. Well recommended.

We stayed at this site for only two nights but would have loved to stay longer.  The site is facing the beach and has the most beautiful views.  The facilities were excellent, even fresh flowers in the ladies toilet and shower area.  You can walk along the beach and over a stream to the village which has a shop and a few pubs/hotels.  We had a lunch at the Carradale Hotel, which was excellent.
The roads are twisty and steep in places but we had no problem, we even travelled along the single track road which runs to the north at 7.30 am to avoid any traffic (this is not suitable for caravans).

This site is lovely if you want a get away from it all holiday. The pitches are large and the site set out so that it feels as if you are on a much smaller site. The owners are friendly and there is plenty of information of things to do. There are rabbits all over the site for company. There is no shop on site and the nearest shop is a 30 minute walk but we found we drove for our morning milk.
The shower/toilet blocks could be better - very clean and enough loos and cubicles - be were a bit tatty. The water pressure is spasmodic therefore sometimes showering turned to be hovering under a small trickle, but other times it was fine.
The surroundings are wonderful - we got to the site via the longer route of Campbeltown (as that was what sat nav recommended as quickest) but went back via the single track road which was much quicker. There are loads of beautiful beaches and no one on them - perfect for the BBQ!
We will definitely go back - I recommend for those going from the south a stop over at Glasgow to allow you to appreciate the beautiful journey around the lochs on route to the site.

Just back from 2 weeks on this fantastic site.  Had a super pitch just up from the beach.  Very peaceful site and the beach was never crowded.
 
All the facilities are good with the slight exception of the showers.  Poor water pressure in the area means they're a bit dribbly at times.
 
Watch out for that hairpin at Grogport - 14% -  we didn't make it!  Owners Colin and Lorraine Burgess say they're used to getting calls for help getting round this bend - Colin comes out and tows you round with his Land Rover.  They're so nice and very helpful.
 
Contemplating a seasonal pitch here, it's so nice.
