Smack bang in the middle of Gairloch Town. Panoramic views of Loch Gairloch.

Very clean toilets but dated by caravan club standards but quite acceptable. Usually we go the Sands Up the road. This site is just as good but in the middle of town. The hotel next door is rundown but clean, good food and comfortable. Give it a go and enjoy. The best place to eat and drink is The Old Inn about a mile from site.

This is a very good location.

Sat here on a sunny day on a gem of a site. Had not planned the visit albeit I had seen older reviews of the site. Shops, cafe, chippy, pub and restaurant within two minutes walk. If your in the area don't miss the opportunity to spend a couple of days.

A great location overlooking the bay and with a chippie just 100 yards away. The toilets and showers are old but kept clean. The toilet cubicle in the ladies was so narrow that the big white round loo roll holder knocked my shoulder while sat on the loo. I'm average size, so it would be awful for anyone on the large side. The welcome was friendly helpful and efficient, including being escorted to our nice large grass pitch.

As others have said previously the older shower block is a little dated however the facilities are very clean and there are proper shower taps with plenty of hot water - all at no extra charge. The site is in the middle of the village of Strath which is the real center of Gailroch and as such has everything from the local shops to restaurants within a few yards of the entrance. The views are beautiful especially from the front pitch's however this also means the site is a little exposed on windy days. The staff are very helpful and have a laid back attitude which made us feel very welcome. While we didn't make use of it there was a laundry on site with dryers & clothes lines. I would certainly recommend this site to any one. Free wifi was an added bonus.

Wow, a campsite with space and freedom! Unless you want one of the few super-pitches with hard-standing you pitch where you want for your type of unit within reach of the power outlets scattered around the areas of mown grassy dunes - there are no marked pitches or rules about which way round to park. Of course this relies on subsequent arrivals respecting your space.

The campsite is a couple of miles beyond Gairloch town, so the well-stocked shop at reception is a welcome facility. The toilets and showers were generally clean, although there seemed to be a management problem with the timing of cleaners’ visits - invariably a young lady wanted to clean at the busiest time of the morning, around 8 a. M. ! They did make other visits during the day as well. Hot water was not always available in the evenings for dishwashing, and the separation of the specific sinks for dishes and clothes was not as clear as it should be.

The on-site restaurant was really good and the prices are reasonable. We could take our dog into the newly-opened extension whereas dogs aren’t allowed in the original rustic area. Good views out of the patio door windows. There’s a fenced dog-walking field of reasonable size with a mown track round its perimeter - saw an osprey sitting on a post there at dusk one evening when walking our dog.

The large beach is huge when the tide goes out and there are rock pools for children to investigate.

Overall a very good site which we would recommend to considerate campers - please don't try to squeeze between other units and observe the 7-metre rule.

We stayed at Gairloch on a Saturday prior to a visit to the gardens at Inverewe. The site is easy to find and is in a great location. We were on a hard-standing pitch at the font of the site and had spectacular panoramic views across the bay to the mountains beyond.

The pitch was large and easy to reverse into - we have a ‘u’ shaped lounge so always point the rear at the view!

Reception was welcoming and simple as we had pre-booked so our pitch was already allocated to us. The fresh water point is near the entrance so it was easy to fill up the tank on our arrival. They have also provided long hose so we did not have to unpack our own f/w hose – a thoughtful addition.

The grey water waste disposal point also was easy access for a motorhome with a very convenient ‘gutter pipe’ provided to divert the waste into the drain. Another very helpful point. The Elsan disposal is at the rear of one of the shower blocks but we did not need to use this.

There are two shower and toilet blocks which were clean and tidy, I think that there were three showers in all but we did not have to queue.

There are shops, café and a hotel and restaurant near to the entrance of the site, which is very convenient.

The site was quiet at night and very peaceful – no rowdy campers. All the dogs we saw were on leads and the owners ‘picked-up’.

During our visit I spotted a static-tourer that had the water pump constantly running. I pointed this out to the site owner Colin who immediately checked it out and filled the water tank for the absent owner so that the pump did not burn out.

All in all a nice site which we will visit again and would recommend to others.
