This was the second campsite I stayed at and is well placed for exploring both the Uists and Berneray. The facilities are immaculate and well maintained and there are good recycling facilities. Nice walks are available directly from the site and the old graveyard is worth a visit. Lots to see on in easy reach of the campsite. I would not miss Berneray where there are lovely old buildings and lots of seals. Fantastic beaches to walk and cycle on. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and the site itself quite sheltered even though it is near the beach. Very pleasant 2 night stay, thoroughly recommend.

When we arrived the warden was busy serving customers at the Dunes catering trailer-the homebakes looked delicious-she immediately told me where we were to pitch with the helpful addition of our name being on the pitch marker post. An excellent pitch almost level with a lovely view inland towards the old cemetery or across to the dunes depending on your orientation. The facilities were spotlessly clean, my only criticism would be over there only being one toilet cubicle ( plus one urinal) in the gent's but it all seems very new so perhaps the facilities will be expanded given time. The large recycling bin was very useful and there was a large commercial type bin for all other rubbish. The morning after we arrived this was towed away and by mid morning the following day still had not reappeared and people had started to pile up bags of rubbish where it should have been. A dedicated bin for doggie bags would be a welcome addition as most owners were being responsible & picking up after their dogs. This helped keep that marvellous beach clean for all. There is a well stocked shop in the village plus a Co-op less than ten miles away. Lochmaddy has a very nice visitor centre and the hotel there serves real ale. Balranald is a very nice site on a lovely island we shall return to both.

Spent a lovely week at this site. Amazing weather! Only a 2 minute walk to a beautiful beach which was very clean and the water really clear. My husband and I saw otters & seals whilst out in kayak. Great for cycling too as lots of landrover tracks around the campsite. Lovely walk round the RSPB reserve although wish we had gone on the guided tour so we could have found out more about the types of birds we kept seeing! Campsite itself was really well looked after and had good sized pitches. My husband even tried lobster for the 1st time, could order one and Anne would cook it for a small charge. The only down-sides were the flies (only a nuisance for a couple of weeks in summer), the unusually large amount of jellyfish in the bay and the fact that we could only pay by cash or cheque. Will definitely be back!

Stayed here for three nights with two teenage children. Heard the corncrakes straight away from our pitch. Lovely spot and facilities spotless. Beach beautiful, good for watersports, although a lot of jelly fish around when we visited. RSPB told me this was unusual, so might just be a one off. Warden very efficient and friendly. North Uist worth a visit and a stopover if you're touring round the hebrides.

Reviewer: Glossopwhite 25 reviews from this member

A nice site only a couple of minutesí walk from the beach, across the dunes. Reserved pitches have your name on the electric hook up pole. All the reserved pitches had been allocated next to each other so it did feel a bit cramped when everyone was there. There is grass next to the hardstandings and the water taps arenít far from any pitch. There is a large grassy area for tents and non hook up pitches.

The amenity block was clean, the £1 for the shower gives you 7. 5 minutes, plenty of time. The metre is just outside the cubicle door, not too much of a problem as the time allowance is generous.

Anne comes and collects the money in the afternoon/evening after The Hut has closed.

The site doesnít offer much protection from the elements and unfortunately there arenít really any views from the site, although the neighbouring beach is nice.

Stayed hire for 4 nights. Very good site with friendly helpful owner. Well organised. Site full when we arrived, but we were allowed on the grass without EHU (no problem for us). Next day there was space with EHU available. Our name was put on the EHU-pole.

Spotless facilities, shower OK but shower starts inmmediately after inserting 1BP. A 15 seconds delay would be handy.

Good tourist info in washing area. Info-centre of the RSPB just outside the campsite. Beach and dunes at 50 mtrs. A really great location for exploring North Uist!
