This is the best campsite on Barra by far! We were originally booked elsewhere but so glad we changed at the last minute. On arriving at the campsite, Angus was there to meet us and had even marked out the best pitches for us. During our 4 night stay it was never busy so we felt like we had the place to ourselves. You are a 2minute walk to a beautiful beach and the views are amazing. The toilet and shower facilities are spotless and a small kitchen is provided with kettle, toaster and microwave. Angus plans to upgrade the house further by adding more showers and laundry. The price is exceptionally good value for money. Charging us £14 per night which included £4 for electricity. The site is on the very North, so 5 mins from airport which does great food and only 20/25 minute drive to Castlebay which has a co-op and couple of hotels. This campsite made out stay on beautiful Barra all the more special and I want to return asap. Worth noting that we didn't have great weather but was still amazing. Can't wait to return.
The best site on Barra, fantastic walking from site and Angus cannot do enough for you. The views are absolutely fantastic and the beach is only a minutes walk away. The new Wind Turbine Road makes fishing more accesable. 2 toilets and showers like your own bathroom, plus kitchen and also new for this year electric hook up. Been staying here since opened and will be back!
As others have said this is an amazing site, with the kindest owner you could ever hope to meet. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights here and had almost constant entertainment from the seals singing on a nearby island.
We visited because of the reviews and were not disappointed. Great walks from the site if you are inclined, either on the empty roads or more rugged hills and/or beaches, including one, where if your timing is good, you can watch the planes take off. Don't expect to shop locally but you can stock up in Castlebay.
Probably the best site there is! Seriously, this site is lovely. The location is spectacular, set close to a large white sandy beach. We stayed a week, were spoilt with glorious weather all week, but the site itself is ideal. Free hot showers, always clean and well maintained, a kitchen providing two sinks with ample hot water, a kettle, toaster and microwave, seating and table - particularly useful for those travelling light.
Although site is sloping, Angus John, the lovely owner, provided blocks for those without their own.
The airport café not far from site, serves excellent food - delicious seafood and super sized homemade cakes. Watching the plane land from the café is a real treat.
If you want a well maintained site, where you're free to choose where to pitch, with good facilities, in a beautiful location and at very reasonable price indeed, then this is the site for you.
We spent 4 glorious days on this site doing a Hop of the Islands. It is £5 per person and £4 for electric, and worth every penny, the toilet and shower facilities are excellent, a bathroom to yourself, the site is on a slope so levellers are needed, but no marked out pitches, find your own spot. As previously stated the beach is just a short walk from the site. The owner is a very unassuming person, and loves to call on an evening to meet and greet all on the site. It is only a short drive to Castlebay if shopping is needed. If you want to chill out of modern day hustle and bustle and going to Barra, this is the site to stay on.
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.
