The drive to this site was an adventure in itself: 15 miles along a narrow single track road with spectacular views but a little hairy if you met somebody coming the other way. However, when you get there it is all worth it. Spectacular scenery and a lovely little quiet spot

The facilities block was fairly new and included toilets, showers, dishwashing, fridge etc, all kept spotlessly clean and warm.

The grey water point was well situated and accessible for any size motorhome.

Wifi (a rarity in these parts) was an added bonus and could be accessed in the facilities block where there were chairs and tables.

The views were outstanding and we walked across the headland to a little harbour just over the way

The owner was friendly and helpful and also owned the pub over the road which served great food (if a little pricey), and was warm and welcoming (again with wifi)

Our favourite site on this adventure

We had decided to take the van and the kids north. On arrival into Ullapool it was bright sunshine and stunning. We looked for a site through my 'caravan buddy' app on my phone.

To my amazement all the sites locally were shut. My last attempt was to the site at Port A Bhaigh and yes they were open! The owner advised me that they were about 28 miles away across from the Summer Islands. I looked on the map its a couple of millimeters away minutes surely?

Wrong. Its about 20 miles off the A835 on a single track road. But don't fear hundreds of passing places and one of the most stunning roads I have ever seen mountains, lochs, sheer drops, and by the way its quite busy so don't think you can rally drive your motorhome you will bump into a local.

Now the site, its brand new bit of a steep slope down but take it easy. We had a pitch at the waterfront and it was right on the beach.

The facilities include free WiFi, (but you need to be in the shower block). There is a wash up area with a couple of sinks, washing machine and a fridge. There is a fantastic baby change and shower area which was great for our 16 month old. The showers (4 in the gents) all brand new and immaculate. The chemical waste area is all stainless steel and looks like something out of a hospital but very clever and clean.

Down sides, none whatsoever the crofters even own the pub at the top of the bank - is this heaven?

My only annoyance is some of my fellow campers messy people they just didn't clean up after them and left the toilet floor swimming. Needless to say my 10 year old spotted this and grabbed a floor wiper and tided up.

Marks out of 10 ? - Easy 12!

But let's keep it our secret.

Lovely site with breathtaking views of the Summer Isles and sunsets to die for. Wee bit awkward to get to but worth it for the scenery on the way. Owner was very friendly and informative and the shower facilities were lovely. Only little fly in the ointment was the persistent smell of drains! It wasn't too bad to start with but was definitely getting worse. That and the fact that any sort of mobile signal was non-existent - but maybe that's no bad thing. Would definitely return.

Caravan with 2 adults was 21/night. Excellent location with views into the bay and out to sea. Road to the site is many miles of passing places but there are no steep hills or nasty hairpin bends. Just a bit narrow at times. We have a large caravan and there was a twin axle motor home when we were there, so it's not that bad a journey. Track down to the site is steep and gravel, and there is a sign stating the warden will assist on exit if required. Was told that track will be concreted in 2014. Warden is available by phone but someone is there twice a day for a couple of hours for cleaning and payments. Toilet and shower block is modern and spotless and possibly the best we have ever experienced. Freezer and fridge are there if needed. Wifi is free but the signal is only in the toilet block where there are tables and chairs in the foyer. Pitches are hard standing and grass but the hard standings are very close to each other. Pub/Restaurant just outside site has excellent food but maybe a touch pricey. Sea food is fresh and local.

Would not hesitate to visit again.

I just had to review this lovely site, we just had one night here last week. They just have the facilities so right. This is not my experience in Scotland as a whole. They have one clean dry area where you can sit and use free wifi, also a fridge and freezer. Laundry facilities and VERY clean toilets and shower and washing up area. In otherwords everything in one place you could want.

We did not use the pub as the weather was so lovely we BBQd!

This is a stunning site with immaculate toilets and shower block. They seem to get cleaned at least twice a day. Wifi in the washroom, toilet block. It doesn't reach the pitches and EE phone signal poor to non-existent. Nipped up to building to get wifi when needed. Good food at pub, but be patient. Peaceful location. And scenery to die for. Only negative was that owners dog did a poo outside our campervan. We have 2 dogs so I used one of our poo bags to clean it up. Will be back. Want to try in winter.
