Arrived at 8pm after a 9 hour drive, had rang in advance and asked for electric hook up, was told by the owner he 'couldn't be going up there to look' but assumed there would be a hook up available.

When we arrived, we were disappointed. The tent field is on a slight slope, with tents opposite each other and a gravel road in between. The owner charged us for electric and said there was probably a hook up available - if we had a long cable. Bit of an understatement as basically, tents can pitch wherever they want, so a tent not requiring electric can pitch on a hook up pitch, which was the case. We found a slot between tents but would have needed a 200m cable to actually use the hook up. We didn't get our money back for the non-use of electric.

The views arent as stunning as described in previous reviews, I was expecting a site on the actual loch and was disappointed, but if you want a one night stop over for the ferry its ideal.

Toilets were basic but clean, no hand drying facilities at all but piped music in the morning was welcome. Dishwashing facilities ok but if 2 of you using the sinks, can be a bit cosy!

We stayed one night and moved on to a far nicer site, and I'd only return if I needed to get an early ferry.

Good campsite very well located for the first ferry from Uig to Lochmaddy in the morning. Toilet block was good and showers were effective and warm according to my wife and daughters. Restaurant by the pier in easy reach and we were very pleased with the meal we had there.

Overall very satisfied with our one night stay there.

We arrived on sat 30th may. We were able to choose our pitch for our large tent with hook up. Owners friendly and helpful. We were staying for 10 days and have just returned home. Loved the site and the setting is amazing. Our only issue was the sensor light in the toilet/shower block which goes off when you are in the shower, this needs altering. This is our only issue. Had a lovely time and the site was nice to come back to each evening, we will return.

After arriving we tried the nearest water tap which was closed. The owner said he had turned off the water due to taps being left on. He kindly filled us up commenting he was on a meter. After 3 days we needed a small refill and found a tap which was working. As we were filling up the owner came over in a panic and pulled out the water hose. We said we only wanted a small amount as we were leaving next day. He kept on about being on a water meter and has cameras to watch from his house.

We paid 15 a night, it is not the problem of the customer if the water is on meter or not. If he is going to limit water this should be stated on his web site or put up the price. Everything else was fine with facilities and stunning views across the bay.

We have been to 6 sites in the past 9 months have never encountered this behaviour. We would come back but not to restricted water.

This site is very very handy for the ferries and there is a small selection of shops in easy walking distance, including a cafe cum community room behind the garage that was cosy and many locals used.

Facilities are straightforward and clean with easy camper emptying point.

The owner is very kind if help is needed and he was swift to offer us practical support when our exhaust blew a hole. He was great and sought us out the next day to ensure the repairs would be successful until we reached Fort William, which they were.

The sunsets that you may be lucky enough to see, are splendid and the leaflets in the tourist office say that corn crake and buzzards are to be seen at the right time of year, in the locality.

Thank you very much, I hope we will return.

This was a stopover for using the ferry to Tarbert, the site being very convenient for the ferry. We arrived early having travelled from Mallaig on the early ferry to Skye and the site was virtually empty but by evening the motorhome area was quite full. The site was basic and ideal for the stopover with eating and bar facilities nearby, although not outstanding. We would use this facility again as the crossing to Tarbert is shorter than from Castlebay to Oban.
