Fantastic views, very welcoming and helpful, we had the most amazing time and the weather was wall to wall sunshine, so I am sure that helped. The campsite was basic but clean pick the time you have a shower and you will be ok as there is only two in the men's but they are free and hot.

The staff were very helpful and easy going. Nothing seemed to much trouble for them

Spectacular setting surrounded by the mountains and the sea. Large site with reasonably well defined pitches. Small shop selling essentials and hot drinks. Breakfast items available.

Facilities decent. However, this is a big site. Come school holidays expect queues for the two showers in the gents!

Coolish evening mid-May and midges were a problem. A net is essential.

9 for tent and one person. Reasonable.

One gripe. If you work at the site and are testing your new car stereo, perhaps do it at a lower volume or elsewhere?

Best views of any campsite in the uk

Spent three nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it

Facility's were very clean and adequate but I'm no glamper!.

Dog Friendly, not loads of kids

A beautiful place to escape to and ill be back in 2016 as three days isn't long enough to explore the island

A perfect site for 'getting away from it all', as the drive out there should tell you. The scenery is lovely (if you can see it!). This is the second time we have been here and unfortunately both times it was misty and raining so we haven't been able to enjoy the full experience of the site (e. G. Walking the hills and beach - as I am a fair weather walker!). This time we only stayed one night on our tour of Scotland.

The facilities were clean and tidy, and as the site was not very full there were no queues for the showers.

I'm glad we opted to go without an electric hook up as I wouldn't have liked to be in the 'car park' that was for the 'vans wanting electric. You would also have had everyone walking past your 'van to get to the toilet/shower block.

If you are going for more than a couple of days be prepared by bringing food as the shop is expensive and does not have much stock.

We had great hopes for Glenbrittle but felt that it was trying to be a bit 'too cool'.

Amazing location, the weather was not kind to us and we left early, having had 40mph winds and rain, when the forecast was for 45-55mph gusts. Our tipi tent is bulletproof but we were struggling a bit for things to do after days of rain with a 9 year old.

The facilities are OK, just OK. There is a coffee shop which serves food (I think) and a little shop selling camping items and basic provisions.

Showers are 20p for 8 minutes, mine only managed a pathetic trickle of water which wasn't great. Some people were putting two coins in meaning a long wait as 16 mins plus changing time is a long time when there are only two showers and lots of campers. No loo roll in the toilets.

We felt that the site was a bit 'grabby', fairly busy, just had a very commercialised feel to it which we didn't expect. I don't want a coffee shop and cafe on a site, I want a decent free shower (and enough of them) and loo roll in the toilets when I have paid a decent price.

22 pn for two adults plus a child.

Reviewer: Arniesdad 14 reviews from this member

I have visited this site many times in the last ten years or so and will always love the spectacular setting and air of peace that seems to exist at Glenbrittle. Although mostly used by hardy adventurers conquering the Cullins there are usually a few non-hook-up campervans around and a fairly small area next to the amenity block for electricity hungry motorhomes, and they will have to be hungry as the extra hook-up price is 7 a night! (most I have heard of in Scotland?). My main grumble, and the reason for Glenbrittle dropping out of my top three Scottish sites, is that money has been spent in the (very handy) shop on site on buying a state-of-the art coffee/cocoa machine and providing a kind of breakfast service whilst any money allocated to the shower block seems to have gone on security and not the basic facilities. I appreciate the efforts of the owners to provide a basic free facility for non-campsite walkers, and this is to be applauded, but the campsite-only section is now I reckon, below standard (and charges for the showers - admittedly only 20p but for anyone who has already paid 7 for a hook-up it really taking the. ). I just think owners of sites should go and use the facilities themselves and see what they think! Moan over - it's still a beautiful site and I will still come here albeit without hook-up.
