We have just returned from a weeks camping on this beautiful site in Gairloch. The views from this site are stunning!
It was windy and raining when we arrived and the warden gave us a choice of pitches. Due to the views there is not much protection from the elements but our tent managed to stand up to it once up. The grass was easy to pitch on and despite the rain and wind there wasn't a soggy patch in sight.
There are 2 toilet blocks, 1 heated and a lot newer than the other. The older one has 3 toilets, 3 sinks and 1 shower which was quite spacious. The newer one had 1 toilet, 2 sinks and 2 showers, which were a little on the smaller side.
There is a covered potwash area, launderette and washing line available, along with a couple of drinking water points.
The warden was very helpful and has a book in his office that has previous visitor comments on what to, where to go. There are local shops and restaurants within walking distance and the harbour and shops are just a short drive away.
Got here on friday 3rd and stayed for three nights,
The warden was very helpful as he was interested in the hills that I intended to walk over the weekend, he even gave me a loan of his munroe books for a quick reference,
The site is centrally situated with a hotel beside the camp site, a grocer next door and a chip shop next to that, with a coffee cum book store across the road and a butchers round the corner because I had my motorbike,
The warden let me park my bike on the hard standing, just in case the side stand sunk into the grass,
The toilets were spotless, the showers were fine, there is two shower rooms with toilets and a separate toilet block, plenty of things for me to do,
The beach is a two minute walk, a 20 min walk takes you round the cove to the gairloch harbour where there is plenty of pleasure cruise ships for sightseeing whales and seals, there is a glass bottomed boat that takes you round the harbour,
Across the road there is an old inn, a trekking stables and a half hour walk to the waterfalls, just remember this is midgy country,
Overall I would give this site 10 out of 10 because the warden was very helpful
Spent 7 days at the Gairloch Caravan & Camping site, and it didn't disappoint. What a beautiful setting, with the site being located in 'Strath', and just off the little main square.
Everything about this site is just so convenient. Shops, post office, Millcroft Hotel for drinks or a meal all just seconds away.
On driving onto the site, it struck me as being very neat and tidy and welcoming, with little bits of garden and flowers dotted around, and with a good tarmac forecourt at the Reception.
We were met by Marion. The warden, and she was very helpful and friendly, and led us to our pitch which was level and we were able to drive on to it with no bother.
The facilities on site were absolutely fine, with older fashioned toilet blocks, but kept spotlessly clean and nice and bright (white walls). We were also lucky to be blessed with really good weather and the views from the site were just stunning.
All in all a great place to visit. Will most definitely be back next year.
We're due to leave Gairloch tomorrow and we've really enjoyed our stay. Marion and Colin do a great job looking after the place and their visitors (and pets). With the shops and beach nearby and the picture perfect view the site is well worth a visit and Gairloch overall should meet the needs of all.
I'm sure we'll return and will recommend the site to anyone.
The local shops are way better than they used to be when I lived here 28years ago and I'm pleased to report their not over charging, the prices were as good as any shops near us at home.
Sadly we manged to break two of our tent poles trying to put the tent up in high winds which was highly amusing
Thanks to the owners who helped us rescue the poles with new pieces they kindly donated and then advised us to use extra lashing ropes ( which we always carry as seasoned campers )
We eventually got sorted
They also lent us extra long hook up extentions again at no extra cost talk about the extra mile for customers
We also got the Wifi and it is only £5 for the week not daily as has been previously mentioned and moaned at
Grounds, facilities, and owners are 1st class and the scenery is outstanding what more does a camper want
The only issue we had was the sea fishing by the light housewas rather interuped by seals on one occasion and a sea otter on another not much chance of fish being caught but the company and photo experience they gave was out of this world
We even caught a quick look at a Minky whale at the same place
We will be back and its looking for the Sea Eagles for us next time
'An amazing view over Loch Gairloch' - it has but only if you are in the front 8 or 9 pitches, so it's well worth trying hard to get one of these pitches especially if you plan a long stay. WiFi was available - did not check out children's facilities.
Very good, clean and new shower and toilet blocks. One thing I particularly like about this site though is the placement of facilities. On checking IN OR OUT, Water, Grey water and Black water are all together so servicing your vehicle is the easiest thing. As it says there are a large range of local amenities available with weird and wonderful souvenir shops. Staff helpful but not often available when we were there as there only appeared to be one guy. Perhaps other staff were on a camping holiday somewhere? They have to sometimes.
