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.

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!

Flat, large pitches in beautiful peaceful location in RSPB bird reserve. Easy to find - well signposted from the main road. Immaculately kept, modern washrooms, though would have been better to put payment meter for shower closer to actual shower.

Lovely homemade soup, sandwiches and cake from mobile van on site from about 11 am to 3 pm.

Wide variety of birds to spot on walks round reserve that take in machair and coast. Will have fond memories of this visit.

This is a flat field with a row of hard standings both sides off a central drive, tents are on grass near the entrance. The owners are extremely friendly and also run 'The Hut' just inside the gates, which sell amazing home made soups, sandwiches and cakes. If there is no one in the office nip to the hut, or your pitch will have an A board at the end with your name on.

The facilities are all new, massive showers, these cost £1, and meter is on the outside of the cubicle, water starts immediately, so be ready, but it is plenty of time to have a good wash including hair.

There is now an Elsan emptying point. The £1 for the shower is more than made up for with free Wifi, which on Skye was costing £5 a day!

I was surprised when I arrived I had no idea where the sea was, but no more than 50 yards from the gates, up a slight hill and there is the most glorious bay of white sand.

There are birds everywhere, the Corncrakes were just getting into their stride, even at midnight!

To sum up a good clean friendly site, near the sea with lots of bird life. Not great on views from the pitch though.

We spent three nights on this fabulous site, the toilet facilities are excellent, and the site owners are very friendly and helpful, you find your own pitch and pay at night. The surrounding area is a walkers and bird watches paradise, and the beaches are fantastic, and if you want peace and quiet this is one place I would highly recommend, and would definitely go back to.
