This was our second visit to Ardnamurchan, the first was a bed and breakfast holiday. This time we had only one night here as part of a week long driving and camping holiday. After one night here, we left wishing we could spend longer here. This is a basic site at the end of a long and tiring drive, but well worth it. The camp site is perfect. The facilities are all perfectly fine, clean and loads of hot water. We plan to return next year for a few more days. Perfect! To make our overnight stay even better, as we made breakfast next to the beach whilst watching gannets diving into the loch we looked up to see seven white tailed sea eagles soaring overhead.

Fantastic campsite. Our idea of the perfect site. Quiet, minimal but functional facilities, fantastic location, nice fellow campers.

The site is on a hill although the marked pitches are on the flattest bits. The pitches at the bottom of the hill are about 6' from a lovely (stone) beach with fabulous views of the bay and a direct view of Mull and three lighthouses which are lovely to see at night time.

We didn't see any while we were there but seals, whales, otters, mink etc. , are frequently spotted from the site.

The toilets/showers are more than adequate, always clean with a good stock of loo roll. There is a bothy with a table and chairs and lots of nature/marine wildlife books and local information. The owner of the site is a lovely man. Showers are hot and free. Washing up facilities in a shed with very hot water and a fridge. Wifi available. Pitch for two adults plus a child 22 a night.

EHU available at the top of the hill - we pitched at the bottom with an uninterrupted sea view. Bit wet at the bottom but that is unprecedented apparently with the dreadful weather this year.

It took almost two hours to get down to the bottom of the Ardnamurchan peninsula towing a camping trailer - single track road with passing places - not fun but definitely worth it.

An interesting site very inkeeping with the surroundings.

As previous reviews stated at first glance this place has an unfinished and somewhat 'temporary' feel about it, but once on site for over 5 minutes you begin to appreciate the work put the owner has done here in what is very demanding ground on a steep hillside.

The views are not the best I've stayed at but without doubt somewhere in the top 5 and can be quite something on a fine morning overlooking to Mull; Adrnamurchan can feel like the end of the earth at the best of times and feel this campsite has picked up on that very well.

The washing and toilet facilities are basic but more than adequate and always kept superbly clean and maintained. The small office and information building is well stocked and something of local interest can be found here particularly for those interested in the endless wildlife in the area.

Being a Saturday evening I walked down to the nearby Kilchoan Hotel for food and drink, the bar was full of locals and quite loud which I would imagine a wee bit off putting to family's and quieter people than me, but that said the staff and the owner could not have been more friendly and willing to accommodate me. All in all next time I will try the Sonachan Hotel 3 miles away though which looked much nicer.

Would I return to this site? Yes for sure but maybe not for some time perhaps.

We arrived completely soaked after a heavy shower caught us on the road. We were very happy to find this place dedicated to campers and vans.

On your arrival your first sight is the complete skeleton of a sea animal pinned on a wall.

Facilities looked a bit knocked-up but they were not : very functional. Large shower plus tap in the same room. Chair to put your stuff on. A shed to cook.

The whole place is simple but very well kept. Grass is comfy and thick.

The owner is a real character. A bit grumpy at first sight but in fact very interesting and willing to help you discover the surroundings. He owns a lot of books about the Ardnamurchan peninsula which is a true beauty.

A honesty box is there if Trevor (the owner) is out. Camping cost us 15 per day for the two of us and our tent. Worth the price if you consider the charm of the place and the remote situation of it.

You can pitch your tent near the sea or up on the grassy terraces. Stunning views on Mull with wonderful lights and changing skies. Lots of seabirds. Seals.

A very nice place where people seam to come back. We had a few friendly chats and drinks with other campers.

We stayed two nights which allowed us to cycle to Ardnamurchan point : the visit of the lighthouse and the exhibition is a must and worth the trip (on a true roller coaster road). Nice tea shop up there with tasty home-made cakes.

The village shop sells petrol (amongst a surprising lot of things), is open every day, even sunday morning. The Kilchoan hotel nearby offers good ale, nice dinner in the restaurant and at the bar.

This camping site is definitely a place where I'll return.

Well worth the journey to this beautiful spot. We camped our Campervan on a grass pitch below the hard-standing as we didn't need a hook up and were fine with the sloping drive - drive in one way and out the other seemed to be the trick.

Friendly welcome from the owner, with an interesting selection of books & local information available in the study centre, and all very informal. We arrived from Mull, so didn't notice the long drive, but if you're going to be the most westerly campers, you have to get there somehow - it's part of the fun! Ideal washing up area - sink, draining board, table & plenty of hot water. Loos & showers spotlessly clean with regular checks throughout the day - they may not be modern, but it is more than made up for by the care to keep them tidy (soap & cotton towels for the hand basins, thank you Trevor). And the showers have the most incredible water pressure that I have ever experienced, and piping hot too! This is a stunning part of the country - we cycled to the lighthouse at Ardnamurchan - fantastic views all along the road & when you get to the lighthouse, plus visitors centre with delicious cakes & gifts, exhibition in lighthouse for a small fee. Yes there are midges, but stick to the Skin So Soft - it works for me, with other campers adding candles & nets, nothing unbearable. Kilchoan Hotel did good fish & chips on the Friday night - 10 minute cycle. Local shop is one of those 'Scottish Wonders' - the local shop that sells EVERYTHING! Food, gifts, hardware - I think I counted 10 types of honey!

Walk down to the bottom of the campsite to the waters edge, pebbly beach, beautiful clear water. Child friendly? Water, lighthouses, volcanoes - I think so! We will return, it's well worth the journey.

This is my (to date) favourite place in Scotland. We have camped 2011 and taken a campervan June '13

I love the long picturesque drive but it is not for the impatient driver. You come across deer on the road who make you feel like you are in their private place, you might find sheep and their lambs lying on the tarmac en route.

The site is simple, 2 toilets and 2 showers, the scenery is breathtaking. Facilities are basic but clean. Trevor is helpful. ~Trevor can tell you about the area. We saw seals at night and I know they have had a whale this year nearby. You can fish from the rocky water coast we walk along the rocky coastline and fish in the evening.

You come here for the scenery or the amazing Sanna beach. Sanna beach has white sands and clear sea. Wildlife in abundance. Tobermory is a short ferry ride. I love the fact you can have a campfire (using a stone or slab lying around to protect the grass) simple camping but a great experience for our family.

Due to its simplicity we never had cause to ask for help. There is a small shop and petrol station closeby. We chose to support the local shop/petrol station. We love this place because of it's peacefulness and beauty.
