Stayed 2 nights in camper van. Stunning location right beside fabulous beach. The site is down a straight well surfaced lane, well off the main road, so no traffic noise.

We arrived after several days of heavy rain, but the site was well drained so it didn't cause any problems. The owners are very friendly, there's a well stocked shop - daily papers etc. And really everything you could want.

The site is spacious and you choose where to pitch. There's a fine range of play equipment for children and space for them to run around. The facilities although dated were spotlessly clean and a vase of daffodils in the ladies was a nice touch. It seemed to provide all that you might want - showers, hairdryer, undercover wash up, launderette.

We used the site at either end of a visit to Islay, it was only 15 minutes up the road to Kennacraig ferry terminal so it was very convenient.

Have marked this site up on our map as one to return to.

Thank you for all your comments, all are received in the full knowledge that you are our customers and we appreciate ALL of the feedback.

My husband and I have taken over the management of Point Sands Holiday Park from 2010, it is a family business and we intend to make all our visitor welcome this coming year. WE are well aware that there do need to be some major changes on the site, whilst these will not happen over night we hope that with your support and feedback we will be able to provide a Holiday Park in the future that we can all be proud of and enjoy. For the moment let us not forget that this is still the best spot in Kintyre for beaches, sunsets and family fun.

We looking forward to welcoming new and old friends to Point Sands in Kintyre in 2010. Please feel free to contact me, Rebecca, directly if you feel I can be of personal assistance.

Location of this site was fantastic, if you like to sit at the beach with a glass of wine in your hand watching the sunset and looking at the stunning views then this is the site for you. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Toilet block was clean, though needs upgrading. On site shop has what you need if you cant get to supermarket. Ideal location for touring the mull of kintyre, would recommend a day trip to gigha,small but lovely island. If you need to stock up,stop at tarbet for all your bits and bobs. Overall we would really recommend this site have been to a few over the years,though this one is tops for the views and tranquillity. Would definitely go to this site again.

Reviewer: The Strutt Murdochs 1 review from this member

We were delighted to have found the Point Sands Caravan Park as we struggled to get accommodation on the many others we had tried last weekend. The guy on the phone was very accommodating. We were keen to have some facilities for our 2 children aged 6 and 5. This site suited us fantastically. The playground was situated in the centre of the site with a clear view to it from where we were pitched. Although the playground wasn't hugely equipped it served the purpose well and kept the kids occupied. When they tired of that we could all wander down to the burn running at the back of the site to feed the very friendly ducks. This was quite a treat as was the site of all the bunny rabbits spotted around the campsite. Especially in the middle of the night when the toilet was needed!

Apart from the playpark and burn, the beach is truly spectacular with amazing views across to Jura and beyond. Again safe enough for the kids to collect shells without getting out of sight. Beach fires were permitted and made for a lovely night watching the stars on a beautifully clear night.

Facilities on the site were adequate. The showers costing 1 were spacious and clean, if a little rundown. Your 1 got you a nice long shower though. There are only 2 showers in the ladies shower block so there was sometimes a short wait for them to be available especially if there was a parent with children using them.

Plate washing wasn't great. Not much in the way of hot water and the taps were awkwardly positioned.

All in all we had a very enjoyable stay. Beautiful location, peaceful and not too busy. The on-site shop sold milk and bread as well as some other basics. A short drive to Campbeltown for food and also close to ferry service to the islands.

We would highly recommend this site for people camping with children of a similar age group (5 & 6) we would like to think we will be back.

Beautiful location, fantastic beach and very safe for young children; relatively expensive (one person plus tent 16 per night) plus 1 per shower. One toilet block from the 70s, poorly maintained and a second one lying derelict and there seemed to be no cleaning or rubbish uplift at the weekends when the site was at it's busiest and no bog rolls or hand soap. Plate wash and clothes wash facilities are reasonable. No drinking water on site. Shop poorly stocked and short opening hours but other local shops only a short drive and very well stocked. No pubs nearby.

Great if you don't mind roughing it or have your own bathroom facilities.

Once you turn off the main road you travel about quarter of a mile to the site, then it opens up to a lovely view over the mull of kintyre. There is a gorse between the sandy beach and the caravans, there is open space for the kids to play and one or two play things for them but there were many other kids there so they all intermingled safely, only thing is that at the back of the site there is a small stream so would be careful, oh the stream has ducks living there and they tend to come around the tents in the morning and night.
The tourer/tent part is in open area and they have a static part which is in a wooded area. The toilet blocks possibly could do with a makeover and they charge 1 for a shower which could go back into the toilet block. Again the wash pan area could do with a lick of paint but serves the purpose.
Tayinloan about 1 and a half mile away here you can get a ferry to the island of Gigha which you can see clearly from the caravan site takes roughly 20 mins on ferry and is well worth the visit.
The shop could do with either being a smaller size or more stocked a nice restaurant could work on the site but there are nice places to eat within a 20 mile radius.
All in All the site seemed well cared for with plenty of hook-ups, bins and water taps, helpful friendly couple running the site and fees are worth it if you never been before and if you haven't do it
