The web site of Moorcrofts understates the position and facilities of their site.

It is overlooking a beautiful inlet towards benbecula with a view you could sit and look at for days.

Like us most people seemed to stay longer than they had planned.

A new amenity block with good showers, plenty of hot water.

A Blackhouse converted into a huge campers kitchen with washer and dryer, money in an honesty jar.

With hook-up, a chemical waste and water all that was missing was Wifi and that was being fitted as we stayed.

Definitely a recommended site and one we shall return to.

Another marvellous site! We sat in our van and watched a Hen Harrier make feeding pass just beside the site. Never seen anything like it before.

There are excellent facilities both in the dishwashing bothy and toilets but the views of the bay are just stunning. This is a well maintained site, too, with signs of investment of time and money in both surroundings and facilities. We'd be really happy to stay here again on our next visit.

Definitely the best site on our tour of the Hebrides. Absolutely stunning views and direct access to beach. Iain, owner is very friendly and extremely helpful. The showers/toilets are second to none as is the campers kitchen (a converted blackhouse) which we didn't need but had a look in it. My 18year old romahome had broken down a couple of days before, needing a new alternator which was fitted at a local garage the day after we arrived at Moorcroft. Iain kindly came down to give us a jump start to get to the garage! We spent the day we arrived walking on the beach. Wellies on in sunshine and walked over sand at low tide and round the island in the bay then carried on for a lovely walk on rest of beach - it stretches for miles. Can't speak highly enough of this site, a lot of thought and hard work has gone into it. Lovely tubs of flowers around the level hardstanding pitches.

Reviewer: Essexhebridean 9 reviews from this member

What a cracking little site! From the friendly welcome, to the wonderful views (yes, even in the rain!) - we would heartily recommend this place. We stayed just one night - having got the ferry across the night before our self-catering cottage was ready for us, but could happily have stayed for longer, thanks in part to the superb facilities - well appointed and immaculately clean toilets and showers, and even a small kitchen with everything you could wish for including laundry facilities. Caravans and motorhomes have hard-standing areas, while there is a good sized grassy space for tents, and although finding somewhere level could be an issue we had no problems. Nearest local shop is at Clachan 5 minutes drive away, and the excellent local pub the Westford Inn can be found 10 minutes further on, at Claddach Kirkibost. For real-ale lovers, or simply those wanting good food at a fair price, this will not disappoint!

The site also has a bunkhouse on site which may prove useful for some, although the kitchen/laundry I've mentioned is specifically for campers.

A most impressive site - would not hesitate to recommend it. Others have mentioned the really good facilities but we were really taken by the owners' attention to detail. The toilet block was always spotless, the bins were never full and we even saw the owner fixing minor blemishes in the road. Some reviewers refer to a small number of toilets. We didn't find this a problem, even when there were quite a few residents. Owners recommend that you use the superbly equipped disabled bathroom. Owners were always helpful and willing to provide information and advice.

Views are very good and it was fascinating to walk into the bay at low tide. There's plenty of wild life and we saw red deer, short eared owls and barn owls from our caravan.

Walk along the white sand beaches - superb!

Baleshare island is well worth a visit for the beaches, seabirds and, in the evening, owls.

Balnarald RSPB reserve is well worth a visit even if you only have a passing interest in birds. The seaweed was alive with waders in places.

RSPB arrange an otter walk every week.

Lochmaddy Arts Centre is worth a visit for the coffee and cake, as well as for information about the various sculptures on the Uists. Of particular interest is a camera obscura which is approached by an interesting walk over a suspensions bridge. A mackerel sculpture is also within short walking distance of the centre.

Try to explore the minor roads. Some unexpected gems!

Visit Barra and Vatersay via the ferry on Eriksay. You can leave your car at the ferry and cycle round the islands. Saves a small fortune in ferry fees as bike go free. Traigh Siar beach and dunes are outstanding.

Try the museum at Cill Donnain on South Uist. Only 2 and a nice cafe.

This site is ideally situated for touring the area and easy to find in the first place. There is provision for tents, motorhomes, small caravans and there is also a bunkhouse. There is a separate kitchen for campers which houses laundry facilities and everything was spotless.

The facilities are superb and could not be better. The showers were spotless and included excellent facilities for the disabled.

The views are spectacular.

Owners are very friendly and helpful.

Certainly one to go back to
