Cracking site in a lovely location only a 5 min drive from Castlebay.

The toilet block/kitchen area was immaculate and is a credit to Donald.

Sunset was superb and there are 2 beaches less than 5 min walk away that are well worth visiting.

Most if not all pitches overlook the bay and we saw an otter during our short 2 day stop over.

It is a 30 minute walk into Castlebay where there are a few places to get something to eat and or drink.

Our first visit to the Outer Hebrides and Barra/Borve was by far our favourite.

A very well run campsite. Beautiful views over the Atlantic. Lovely walks from the site. The facilities were well kept and toilet block very clean. Free WiFi which worked at the toilet block but that was Ok

This site is an absolute gem and a credit to the owners. Fantastic location, brilliant facilities - better than some caravan club sites We have visited. The sunsets are amazing and we did not want to leave. Donald the owner is a lovely guy who goes out of his way to make sure everyone is happy. Would definitely recommend the site and look forward to going back again.

After reading poor reviews of campsites on the Hebrides I was a little anxious about what to expect. The campsite at Borve dispelled all anxiety. It is in a lovely location with wonderful sea views and not too far from the ferry at Castlebay. The facilities were excellent: good showers with plenty of hot water, kitchen facilities and all spotlessly clean. A washing machine and tumble dryer are also available. There is a very well stocked Co-op in Castlebay. It is well placed for access to Vatasay, beautiful beaches and generally touring this small island. The owner is the local Postie and he was friendly and helpful. It is a very relaxed site and I would and have recommended it to other travellers.

We have just got home after a week at Borve and cannot praise it highly enough. This was our second stay at Borve and Donald is continuing to expand the site to provide a more sheltered area for tent campers. The boat from Oban was unable to sail most of the week due to the very windy weather, so we had the place to ourselves.

Such a peaceful spot- you can watch the sunset and then lie in bed listening to the waves on the rocks.

Absolute perfection.

This was our first stop in the OH, we stayed for two nights, and my-oh-my what a good choice. The site is small but in a marvellous location just above the beach and little cove where you could sit and happily watch the ebb and flow of the tide. Donald the owner was on site to meet us from the ferry and suggest where to pitch and he was in evidence every day, in case of any problems - there weren't any. The facilities are first class; new, modern, sleek and spotless. You genuinely could not ask for more. Its a short hop from the ferry and the attractions of Castlebay and well situated near the main road for seeing the rest of Barra and the isle of Vatersay (of the Vatersay Raiders fame and more recently the music of the 'Vatersay Boys'- watch them on You Tube). As a location from which to see the island of the beach runway, of rocky bays and sparkling sand, of Frazer in Dads Army and of Whisky Galore (the author Compton Mackenzie is buried at Eoligarry) and to get a first taste of the scottish 'gaidhealtachd' it cannot be beaten. It really is that good. The only positive criticism I could make - and it is a tiny one - is to create a greywater disposal point at ground level. Other than that three cheers for Donald.
