A small and perfectly formed site. Only 2. 5 miles from Oban to Castlebay ferry, perched on a ledge between the road and the beach, yet surprisingly sheltered from both. Flat and good sized pitches with EHU. THe campsite owner has thought of everything, making it really homely. Ultra clean showers and toilets. Kitchen is fully equipped with washing machine and drier, grill, microwave and every kitchen implement you could ever ask for, even washing up liquid, scourers and brushes. There are even single clothes washing tablets available via an honesty box, wifi.

This site is stunning, sitting above the Altantic coast. The Amenity block, although quite small, is second to none. Donald even provides soap powder for the washing machine and washing up liquid for your dishes! Wifi is free but slow in and around the amenity block.

Thank you again, Donald.

We stayed on this wonderful Site for 6 nights, enjoying every aspect:

Sea Views - sitting in the Van watching the North Atlantic

Scenery - Barra is beautiful

Walks - lots of walks along beaches and beside lochs

Facilities - great amenity block, now with free WIFI

Welcome - Donald is helpful and represents true Hebridean hospitality

Wow what a stunning campsite this is ! situated overlooking the sea on the west coast of Barra ! its just a few miles from Castlebay so very handy for the ferry to Oban, Castlebay has all the local amenities you need including a co-op store, post office, shops etc. The site has new toilet & shower facilities with a small kitchen area and free wifi, there's even fresh local crap in the fridge for sale with an honesty box for payment. The site owner who is also the local postman, is a really nice guy and drives around a few times a day to collect new arrivals fee's which at 19 per night for a motorhome with 2 adults & EHU is good. Although there's not a lot in Borve, there are some lovely walks along the amazing ever changing coastline. This is a 'must stop' place in a beautiful part of the world which we intend to use again & again whenever we return 10/10

Great site with lovely views. Good facilities and, while we were there, a local lady filled the fridge with crab claws (crab lollipops!) and crab meat, paid for into an honesty box. The crab claws were brilliant.

The warden/owner was very friendly and helpful.

Given the size of Barra, the site is near to everything on the island :-).

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.
