This is a lovely site. In a dramatic location, it is quite exposed and the weather was very windy during our visit. There is an excellent facilities block, clean and well equipped. There is free wifi in the block. I would recommend booking in advance as its not very big and a number of units turned up during our stay without bookings. The owner was very helpful. There is a co-op in Castlebay and a very good curry house.

First stop on Hebrides trip and the best. Fantastic setting. Everything you need amenities wise (would suit campers). Site was empty when I arrived so took the concrete, level pitch close to amenity building. Easy drive to Castlebay for dining/supplies. Highly recommended.

Leaving castlebay ferry terminal, turning left, and following the main road to just past the barra beach hotel brings you to this great little site, blink and youíll miss it as itís just below road level. Thereís around 8 hard standing electric hook up pitches, all perched virtually at the oceans edge, and a small camping area. The facilities, toilets, showers, washing area etc is housed in a central building, everything is spotless, almost seems brand new. Thereís free wi-fi too. The owner, Donald, is a local postman and will come and find you once you arrive. He is friendly and knowledgeable and nothing too much trouble, great bloke. Would definitely stay here again.

There are 4 campsites on the isle of Barra and for us this one is the best. It's on the west side of the island and can get hit by the storms but that location makes it pretty special for the views of the ocean. It's on a small inlet and you can watch the seals only a few yards away swimming and basking on the rocks from your window. Being only a couple of miles from the only town/village of Castlebay on the island, it's easy for shops.

The campsite is run by a local postman called Donald, who lives maybe half a mile away and within sight of the campsite. He's a lovely, helpful and sincere guy who pops over of an evening to check everything's ok. The site has about a dozen pitches, all with stunning ocean views. Most are gravel or grass but this is in sandy soil so no problems with soft boggy ground here. The facilities are small but perfectly adequate for the number of pitches. They are modern and clean with plenty of hot water for showers and the campers kitchen. WiFi is accessible close to the amenities building. If we returned to Barra we'd certainly revisit this site.

Reviewer: GillOK 8 reviews from this member

8th campsite on our tour of Skye and the Outer Hebrides. 4 adults and a car. This was one of the best sites we stayed at. Sadly, followed the Satnav with postcode - don't make the same mistake we did. We came from the airport, travelling anti-clockwise, so need to go beyond the village on the main rd and will be on your right hand side. If you come from Castlebay, will be on your left before the village, so can't make a mistake. My fault, no signal, so couldn't check directions on website! I'll know better next time.

The facilities are fantastic, spotless toilets and showers, washing machine, dryer - the kitchen has the use of lots of appliances that we didn't need to use. Wifi included, but doesn't stretch to all areas, not a problem, as can go to the amenities block, where there are seats and information leaflets, visitors book etc. Site is situated overlooking a bay, we were lucky enough to see 2 seals. It is exposed, but you'd expect that, overlooking the bay, so be prepared for wind change and consequently, waves crashing over the rocks, not the quietest nights sleep. Also ideally located for catching the ferry to Oban.

Very responsive to messages. We were greeted at the site by Donald, very friendly, and explained everything we needed to know.

Directed us to our plot - absolutely amazing view over looking the sea, so we slept to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. Facilities are great, toilets, hot showers - which are very clean and warm. You have free wifi access to contact family and friends. There is kitchen with a kettle, mugs, toaster, fridge and sink. It's £1 each to use the washer or dryer. We really enjoyed our night there, and will definitely return.

Booking is recommended due to the size of the site. You will not be disappointed, shame Donald can't control the weather, as I'm sure he would if he could!
