I've stayed at this campsite a couple of times and never get fed up with it. The site is small so I would recommend booking but it is situated in the most stunning part of the island.

The amenities are clean and have everything that you would need for camping. (kettles, charge points etc).

A word of warning though. Don't plan to eat at the Isle of Barra hotel which is less than a 10 minute walk from the site. They are a bit hit and miss with providing food. They don't serve if there are coach parties staying at the hotel. Head for Castlebay instead.

Just stayed 3 nights on this site. Amazing spot right on the coast. Fantastic size pitch not packed in at all even when busy. Donald does a fantastic job of organising pitches and keeping everything clean and tidy. Facilities are exactly what's needed. Clean showers and toilets, a small kitchen to use with kettle, microwave, fridge, toaster, washing machine, dryer and more and WiFi access in and around building. Cycleable to castlebay for shops etc approx 2. 5 miles. Very friendly and helpful. Loved it. The area is great lovely beach approx 1 mile up road and many more on island.

2nd visit to Borve campsite and it was even better than last year (excluding the weather).

It is a really nice walk into Castlebay or one of the cracking beaches either side of the campsite.

Much busier this year but toilet/shower block was kept immaculate by Donald and his assistant.

We stayed for 4 nights as we wanted to spend a few days at Luskentyre on Harris but a week or two at Borve would have been a pleasure.

We will be back.

It was a little windy & wet for our visit but the location is ideal for touring the rest of Barra & not far from the ferry - make sure you head over to Vatersay the beaches are amazing. Also the Community Shop in Castlebay hires bikes and has a great range of local goods & gifts & some gluten free items too (I couldn't find any in the Co-op). I can only echo what other reviewers have said in that facilities are excellent and spotless and Donald was visibly on hand daily. Although our pitch was cramped it was not an issue as we were only there for a couple of nights and it was wet, so no need for space outside. He did say that people had pitched up without booking in which was not his fault and clearly this would not normally be an issue. Due to the layout (unless you were at either end of the site) not an ideal site for very young children as obviously despite being supervised at all times there were vehicles driving close past our pitch to the other pitches but for every other age group it would be fine. A little road noise but nothing unexpected being next to the road nor when compared to the mainland! We would certainly return again when the kids are older and can highly recommend.

It's a shame - the reviews have to be at least 200 words - as I would write only one - brilliant!

Donald (who is also the postman) gave us a very warm welcome. We had a pitch on the cliff side with undisturbed views out over the sea. We spent the evening watching the dolphins. Showers are warm & clean with lots of hot water. & the kitchen had lots of little free bits in for walkers/tents. Can not fault it - will definitely be back.

I stayed in this cracking little campsite in May with Temperatures of 3deg and wind gusting Force 9. Snow hail and rain was had too! Donald - who runs it - is fab and so helpful, wonderful amenities - everything you could wish for and wifi. Then the weather improved - waking in the morning to the call of the Oyster Catchers, watching Gannets feed while drinking your tea, parked 4 feet from the Ocean cannot be beaten. 3 min from Coop in Castlebay. Perfect. Visit Barra - its a very special place. Wonderfully friendly people. Thank you Donald!PS Lemon drizzle cake at the Airport Cafe and the Castlebay Post Office has to be sampled. Divine!
