We have just spent our third yearly holiday at this very pleasant site and have returned to London rested and relaxed. The owners, Steve and Jaquie, are the best hosts I have ever found on a campsite and I have been camping for forty years or so. Our eight year old daughter is so in love with the whole area that she has told us we have to move there straight away!
.This is the perfect site for a family holiday and has access to golfing, beautiful beaches, fishing, forest walks and much more including a whole lot of good old fashioned relaxation.
I would recommend it to all of those people out there who are looking for some serenity in their lives and want to go home feeling that they have had a holiday. I will definitely be going back.

Just returned from a fantastic 10 day stay with Jaquie and Steve.  The site was spotless and the hosts ensured our every need was met.  The local area is outstanding and there are so many places to visit.  The beaches are fantastic and the hidden ones such as Saddel (on the road to Carradale, entrance opposite the abbey) are brilliant. We were lucky enough to see Dolphins from here!  If you like seafood please visit the castle at Skipness where you will find the excellent seafood cabin. You can take the main road or the scenic route through Peninver & Carradale.  We took the twenty minute ferry to Gigha as foot passengers (no need for a car) and had a great time. The Boat cabin and Hotel are great for food & drink and the gardens are a mile and a half walk away and well worth the visit.  This campsite is a great base to explore Kintyre from and you will not be disappointed.enjoy!

The weather was a bit cold and windy, but the facilities for campers were wonderful! You have no idea how much we appreciated the static caravan containing fridge, freezer, microwave, kettle and plug! Facilities were immaculate and staff were very friendly. A very nice experience!

ust returned from 10 days at this peaceful, relaxed family run site overlooks the famous links golf course with views of the glorious Atlantic, Islay and Jura. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time, the owners were very friendly and helpful. The site (was an old coal mine in years gone by) has approximately 50 pitches there are also three Wigwams for Hire and the site is open March Until October. The pitches are of a good size and flat. The Electric hookup cost us £2.00 per night. There is a Campers room with micro wave and kettle coffee making facilities and a small library. The toilet blocks consist of a ladies block which has one shower, two toilets with washhand basins in the cubicle and two sinks in the main part. The Gents a similar set up then there is a disable facility/family room with shower and wash basin and wc also included in this room is a babies bath. In the same block is the dishwashing and laundry room. All of these are kept scrupulously clean. The washing machine is on trust that you pay £1.50 per load. The hot water is plentiful and free. Further over on the site is another shower room and toilet. The bins were emptied regularly and we were there during the busiest week, and it was HOT weather. There is a dog walk and that is kept clean too. If you want to eat out a walking distance away is the Beachcomber Bar, and that is very good and reasonable too. For Surfers there is plenty of surf at Westport Beach just a short distance away. the beach near the camp is sandy for children. For Bird watchers you just have to go a short distance to the Gauldrons for a Sea Bird Observatory. Capbletown is just about 6 miles away where there are Teco and Co-op for shopping you also have Davaar Island as a place to visit. Suggest you book early

We found the site to be very pleasant. The site owners, Steve and Jacquie were both friendly and welcoming. The site is family friendly and the nature of the site seems to attract the right visitors who look out for each other.

The on site facilities were kept spotless and the small site shop provides basic supplies and the prices are very reasonable. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area of the Kintyre peninsular. The local beaches were sandy and empty. The sea was not as cold as you would expect although there are warnngs of strong under currents.

The only minor downside was the amount of wind but this was compensated for by spectacular sunsets.

Well worth a visit even though it took us quite a journey to get there. We will be going back.

Simply a great site! We stayed 3 nights and were very impressed by the friendliness (but by no means 'in your face') of the owners, and the facilities available, especially the static van with fridge, freezer, etc. for campers' use. Love this sort of thing when in a tent.

The toilet blocks were spotless and we saw them being cleaned several times each day. The bins throughout the site were also emptied more than once a day. This is so important to us since we have 2 under 5s. Free hot showers, soap dispensers everywhere.

Will definitely go again.
