One year on from our first visit, this campsite is still a gem. The showers/toilets still immaculate, together with the wash-up area, with the added bonus of a tumble dryer this year. Free range eggs are still sold, be quick there is a high demand. Anne, the owner is a wealth of information, and very helpful in times of need. The site is on the machair so only a quick hop over the dunes to an exquisite beach, where you can start a walk around the headland. Shops at Bayhead and Sollas cater for your food needs and eating out has now got nearer with the opening of the Westford Inn (great food-book) or treat yourself at Langass Lodge. Most of the people staying have an interest in the wildlife, so if you want to see hen harriers from your porch, listen to corncrakes or feed your crumbs to the curlews, come here.

Lovely location, if you ignore the graveyard! This site is very nice, it is right next to the beach and is in the nature reserve. This does have its downsides though, as the corncrake do make a racquet during the night and the sand flies were just a tad annoying! At least they weren't midges though! Midges stay away due to the sea breeze. The sunsets are amazing if you walk up to the dunes and look over the beach. Although it is next to the beach, you can't actually see the sea from the pitch. The facilities are great and very clean, however for the size of site, 2 toilets and 2 showers each, just isn't enough. There is a catering van on site which is good. Also a washing machine and tumble dryer and plenty or washing line too. The site is nice, if you don't mind graveyards, and to be honest, we got used to it and most of the time another caravan blocked our direct sight of it. You also get used to the corncrakes and the flies and the beach is lovely. North Uist is an excellent location and there are lots of nature walks and boat trips you can do as well as visit the beautiful beaches. There are shops nearby and petrol stations and cafes. You are limited as there aren't many campsites on the Uists, but there are some wild camping spots too. If it's the beach and sunsets you are after then this is the campsite for you. We probably won't go back to this site though, as there are others we prefer.

On a bleak day this site may not look inspiring - pretty much a car park with some grass pitches and a wire fence! Trees and shrubs are a rare thing in the Outer Hebs. However, you're not here for the beauty of the site but its location in the RSPB reserve and fantastic beaches on the doorstep. Friendly and helpful manager/owner. Clean facilities but we mainly used our own. The only pub in North Uist (The Westport) is a short drive away and has decent food. The snack & cake van on site is open for a few hours every day and the 'Bayhead' shop is a few miles drive for supplies. Balranald makes a great base for exploring North Uist. It seems popular so book ahead.

WE stayed for just one night and although this site was not our first choice, we were very happy with it.

The woman who welcomed us was very pleasant and helpful and the facilities were clean and well maintained.

We had a lovely walk through the bird sanctuary, though really do need to take a book of birds and wild flowers with us next time.

Only criticism it that it is not the most scenic of sites, but then you don't need too travel far to get some wonderful views.

Another beautiful site in the Western Isles the plus being that it was in a RSPB nature reserve. Lovely walks from the site to catch sight of the birds and other animals. Toilet facilities were very clean and well kept

Quite the best site in the Western Isles.

All the normal facilities available and impeccably clean as well.

A previous reviewer criticised the cost of the shower at 1 because with children it could cost a lot, I think this is unfair as the site is not specifically advertised as a family site, the showers and toilets were very clean and well designed.

There is a wildcamping site at Hosta a couple of miles away, Balranald itself is 50m from a beautiful sandy beach.

The best feature of this site is the little cafe open from 11-3pm, serving great sandwiches and cakes.

Hard to beat.
