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.

As described by others, the location is superb, perched as it is between the road and the sea overlooking a big rocky bay. The facilities were warm and spotless, and the wildlife abundant - we stayed only 3 nights, but during that time there were otters and dolphins showing in the bay. I would advise you to book in advance though, as the Hebrides are becoming very popular as a destination. With lower ferry fares and more motorhomes being sold every year, the sites are all getting busier and whilst it is always worth turning up 'on the off chance, there was not room to accommodate everyone who drove in, despite it being only May. The owner Donald was really helpful when the ferry broke down and stranded people overnight, juggling bookings as far as he could to accommodate people returning hopefully to the site. If you like wild, white sandy beaches, do take a drive over the nearby causeway to Vatersay, where you will find a couple of real beauties! Definitely a site we will return to.

What a great site. Really handy to get to everything on Barra and not too hard to cycle to most places. Stunning views from the whole site with plenty of wildlife right on your doorstep. You can go to sleep and wake up looking at the sea. The shower block has everything mentioned in previous reviews and is absolutely spotless. All this and the Donald Factor too! We would definitely stop again. If you do come try to visit the Community Shop in Castlebay. It's a great initiative that deserves support. They sell lots of local goods and if you're a knitter you'll also find some fab wools.

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.

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
