Stayed here for 2 nights during a Calmac Hopscotch tour. Was met by the owner when I arrived off the ferry and he immediately pointed us in the direction of what he considered the best pitch for a tent on his site. He was not wrong! :))

Wonderful views over the sea and beaches and no-one else close by so complete privacy.

Large and tidy site, toilets and showers immaculate. Well worth the 4 per person per night charge.

50 yards walk to beach from entrance gate and well situated for exploring the island. Well stocked co-op in Castlebay and only 20 mins here from ferry.

Cant wait to visit again.

Easily the best site on Barra, a large field with lots of room. The showers and toilets are immaculate. The beach is a 2 minute walk away and perfectly safe with beautiful white sand and coral seas.

The site overlooks Eriskey and South Uist and is only a few minutes drive from the famous Barra airport - watch the planes land and take off from the beach.

Corncrakes and Skylarks are in abundance and if you are lucky you may see Golden Eagles, White tailed Sea Eagles and Otters.

The site owner - Angus John Morrison is the most kind and helpful person you could ever hope to meet.

We have been to the site for the last 4 years and stayed 4 - 5 weeks, absolute bliss. We will be back again next year - can't wait.

Spent one night here and Angus John could not have been more helpful, stunning location with easy access to beach. Next year he should have all his facilities up and running, which even this year were not bad, showers and toilets spotless.

I reckon this site could be very busy next year and is very convenient for the ferry to Eriskay.

Charged us 5 each per night for a medium/large tent, bargain.

Recommend this site will return next year.

This campsite overlooks the sea, with uninterrupted views looking towards South Uist and Eriskay. It is a large field, with the facilities in a house at the top of the field. When we were there the facilities were a shower room with WC and a washroom with WC. Angus, the owner, was planning to install another shower and another, separate, WC. He is also planning on installing some electric hook-ups for next year.

The facilities were pretty good, although, as there were quite a few campers on site, there was a bit of a queue to use the facilities in the morning. There is great walking from the site, over the hills and onto the beaches and to the airport.

It is a lovely spot and my only negative comment would be that there was no prohibition on the use of a generator. These are always noisy and could potentially ruin a stay in an otherwise very peaceful place. Hopefully, when hook-ups are available next year, Angus will not allow the use of generators.

Lovely campsite a few metres from the beach, unspoilt beautiful surroundings, about 10 minutes drive from the Airport and about 20-25 minutes from Castlebay.

The toilets and the shower are clean, plenty of hot water, probably the best shower I had during our camping trip in the Hebrides. The site is big enough that even when it operates on full it doesn't get crowded.

The owner was very friendly and welcoming, to his suggestion we went back to the airport by sunset and climbed up the sand dunes opposite to the building arriving to a stunning beach with one of the most amazing sunsets. I hope we will have the chance to go back there.

Great site quiet setting, fantastic views towards Uist & Eriskay. Water, Electricity and Toilets on site, Croft house nearby with shower and hot water. The owner Angus John was very friendly and attentive. The site is at the far end of the island 10 mins from the airport and 25 mins from castlebay also 15 mins from the ferry link to Eriskay. The site is a large open field surrounded by a fence with plenty of room for both campers and caravanners alike. There is a path leading from the site to the beach only 2 mins walk.
