A lovely site with plenty of space, in a lovely area of Scotland. Only stayed for 1 night but wanted to stay longer to explore the area. Will definitely return. Friendly helpful owners. Hot croissants and pain au chocolat available for breakfast. Facilities on site excellent too.

The best thing about this campsite is that it's within walking distance to Camusdarach beach, with glorious white sand. You can't see it though from the site. If you're a fit adult it's probably a 5 minute walk from the camping area, via three gates and two sets of wooden steps - if you've a toddler in tow, it's more like 15 minutes.

The shower and toilet block is nicely done up but with two loos and three showers in the ladies, and two loos, two urinals and two showers in the gents, I imagine there are queues when the 17 hook-ups plus extra tent spaces are occupied.

It's advertised as dog-friendly, so much so that very few dogs were kept on leads on site, and we had several near misses with dog poo on the way to the beach.

As is normal in Scotland it rained for much of our stay, and the ground on site became very muddy and waterlogged. I'm not sure why the gravel around the shower and toilet block has not been extended in a path to the entrance driveway and from there to the bins. I slipped up flat on my back twice in two days depositing rubbish in the bin, so was grateful that the owner agreed to my request to a washing and drying token, although it didn't quite stretch - with washing at 2. 50 and drying at 4. 00 (for two hours in a domestic machine), I'd recommend bringing extra sets of clothes.

Disappointing that the take-away only operates from July to September.

Overall a nice site, but not worth the 27 a night it cost us. The beach is definitely worth a revisit though.

Great Campsite with excellent facilities and lovely owners, newly refurbished shower block is fantastic with waterfall shower heads which are always hot, toilets, several wash areas to clean hands and face, as well as well covered washing up areas for doing the dishes, free WiFi covering much of the site although we ended up in a field they normally only use for wedding functions so couldn't get WiFi for much of the trip (not entirely a bad thing) as a little bonus there is a small shop which sells your normal campsite basics, come night time and morning the shop is a basic takeaway taking orders before 5pm for dinner (pizza's and chips) if you didn't fancy cooking the odd night and in the morning they serve fresh baked croissants and pain au chocolat again handy if you fancied not having to cook breakfast all of which was very reasonably priced. Access to several outstanding beaches less than 2mins walk from the tent and the surrounding area has plenty to see and do, ehu is also available. Will definitely be returning again. You are well advised to book in advance as this is a popular site and for very good reason.

Lovely site.

New showers which looked fab but I could only get cold water, my husband didn't have any problems though.

Direct access to a stunning beach.

No play area but my boys loved the beach and woods for making dens.

Located between Arisaig and Mallaig, Mallaig is lovely and has an excellent fresh fish shop.

Unfortunately it was very wet when we were there but if you get the weather it would be perfect!

A great site for a relaxing break. We were able to leave the car parked for most of the time and walked just about everywhere either on the beach, the sand dunes or quiet lanes.

The new shower block was better than we had hoped for after reading earlier review. My only VERY SMALL criticism would be to have a few coat hooks by the dish wash area.

The site is very convenient for dog walking being only a couple of minutes from the beach and with sand dunes to explore.

Arisaig has a good shop but when we were there the visitor centre was being refurbished although there was no indication for this on all the posters being displayed.

Camusdarach Campsite is situated in an amazing area, with access to the most wonderful beaches, soft white sand and beautiful views over to the Islands of Rum and Egg.

I had a large pitch for van and awning and plenty of room to sit outside.

Clean washing area. Showers too small and no shelf for my glasses, ended up using the vans shower. Only one water tap for 2 camping fields. Would be very easy to spur off to provide another.

The owners have only been there for 2 years and I feel they are still learning. They are very helpful. However I do think the site needs a little TLC, otherwise it will run out of control.

Very relaxed, which is great, however it felt there were no rules eg, open fires direct on the grass, dogs off leads.

I loved the area and the site has potential with care.

A little too pricey at present.
