Just returned from spending another 2 weeks on this tranquil campsite which has been improved since our last visit in July 2014 with the addition of a shower room with toilet, wash basins and washing machine, excellent facilities. A very warn welcome from both Mary and Angus and excellent home made cakes and scones from Mary too. The corncrakes are still in residence in the adjacent fields. Looking forward to a further visit.

After changing our caravan for a motorhome we decided our first trip would be be to the Outer Isles. So we took the ferry from Oban and found this site. It has fantastic views and is very quiet. The road from Castlebay was quite narrow in places but we had no problems with our 7. 14 m motorhome. There is a large shower block with three showers and a kitchen area. It looks as this was previously a house and was converted by a DIY enthusiast! The rocky/sandy beach is an easy walk although when we were there there was a thick covering of sea weed at the high tide mark. If you want to stay a few days take everything you need as there are no shops/pubs close by. The owner was very friendly and came down each night to collect the fees - 14. 00 including electric in May.

Just returned from another wonderful stay at this fantastic site. My stay here, was made more incredible, as I got a chance to see for myself, the very rare and difficult to see corncrake. Heard the corncrake on many occasions, this is the first time I've actually seen it. There are no fewer than 4 breeding in the long grass, behind the campsite. Had a lovely sunset walk out the road to the community owned turbine, which is located a mile from the site, this walk is a must, as there are wild birds, otters and seals can be seen. The site owners are near completion of a toilet and shower block, which will be an added bonus in my mind, to this site. This site is located in a very sheltered spot from most wind directions. The views from the site are unspoilt and breath taking, long Sandy (desserted) beach at the bottom of the site, just ideal. Looking forward to returning to this site in July, for two weeks.

Found this campsite on this website, read the reviews and booked in. This is a fantastic campsite, situated in a beautiful area of Barra. Very tranquil with breath taking views across the bay. Woke every morning to a stunning sunrise! The owner was friendly, helpful and felt like an old friend who was full of information of places to see, visit and local knowledge/history. Although this site has basic amenities it just made the visit even more of an experience! I would recommend this site to anyone wanting to stay on Barra. We chose to stay in accommodation in Castlebay on our final night and both wish we had stayed at the campsite instead! We will definitely go back!

We stayed at croft no. 2 for four nights in July 2014 with two teenagers, one of whom camped in a tent adjacent to the van. This is simply the most beautiful spot on Barra, with direct access to the beach and views across Barra sound. We windsurfed from the beach, which is a perfect flatwater location and safe in a southerly. When the wind dropped, I canoed and spotted crabs on the otherwise spotless sea floor. We could hear the seals 'singing' across the bay, something I had not experienced before.

We were made to feel very welcome by the owners of the site and having not really done many small sites before, I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly it was. You really need your own facilities here as there is just water, hook up and chem disposal point, which is quite basic but I would recommend this site to anyone who is wanting to visit the western isles, or outer hebrides as they are more often known.

We would all love to re-visit this spot again in the future.

We spent 10 fantastic nights on the Isle of Barra which were enhanced by staying those nights on Croft No2. The warmth of the welcome from Mary was perfect after a long drive and ferry crossing. Mary's baking prowess has been mentioned elsewhere on this page and we can confirm the quality, what a bonus. The location is superb only a very short distance from the beautiful beach which goes on for miles. This is a limited facilities site but does have electric hook ups and is on a well cared for lawned area with fine views across to Erisscay. There is an adjacent building with a dining table and chairs, information, a washing machine and tumble dryer. Nothing is a problem here, just ask.

The Isle of Barra is a delight, uncrowded, peaceful and the people are very welcoming. Don't be shy about joining in any of their events, this is a really close community and welcomes participation from all. The beaches and countryside a stunning. You can walk for miles on a beach and not see another human. We saw dolphins, minkie whale, otter, golden eagles and a huge variety of smaller birds, most evenings we would hear the corncrakes in the long grass behind our caravan, wonderful! Wild flower are in abundance with a good mix of orchids.

Vattersay a small island to the south and connected by a causeway should not be missed. Lovely views and beaches. Don't miss the tea room in the community hall, great cakes!

In Castlebay there is a Co-op, a bank and a small variety of other shops with free WiFi in the community shop. Various places to eat out if required around the island. We also bought fresh fish from Barra Atlantic the local fish processing plant, very cheap and straight from the sea. Barra airport is well worth a stop off as you pass by and has a good cafe.

We will be returning as soon as possible.
