A larger site than we would usually visit but lovely and quiet, good location with a small high street/petrol garage close by, pitches were spacious with electric hook up and water our pitch, showers lovely and hot, toilets and washing up area were spotlessly clean. Site also has a laundry facility. Site is dog friendly and allows bbqs as long as they are off the floor. All in all a good site.

We returned to this site again with my brother, sister-in-law and their two children from South Africa. They really enjoyed their stay for the weekend in our tourer. Weather was lovely and they enjoyed the trip out to Crinan Harbour. The site was a lot more busier - it was Scottish school holidays - but the site was still quiet and nobody made a nuisance of themselves. The wooden fence they were working on the month before is finished. It is very good value for money and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be returning shortly!

We stayed for 5 nights at this caravan site and found it to be very pleasant and the weather perfect. Although ablution block is dated, it was always clean. Owners are very friendly and we're helpful even though we had arrived just before 9pm. We chose our hard standing pitch and sorted payment out the next morning. Site is very clean, grass was short and well kept. A wooden picnic bench was conveniently placed at almost each pitch. Wooden fencing was being put up in the far corner of site, but nothing to rob us of peace and quiet. Site has had a revamp and caravans/statics moved around. Small play park for the children and plenty of space to ride their bikes too. Loch Gilp is just over the road - we hardly noticed the traffic noise on the main road. Crinan Canal was beautiful and we cycled along the tow path to Cairnbaan where the locks start. Crinan Harbour is very quaint with a lovely coffee shop and hotel/restaurant. There is a Tesco Express & Co-op in town. Tarbert is a lovely town to visit and a walk around the harbour is a good day out. The surrounding scenery is spectacular - and we even took a ride down to Castle Sween and found a beautiful white beach with crystal clear sea water. On the whole one of the best holidays we've had in a long time - definitely going back. Even considering relocating to the area with our four children! Only downfall were the midges - so stock up on Smidgee cream & they will leave you alone.

This site 100yds out of town, ideal for visiting local shops / pubs. 'The Comm' pub did a OAP special. Any half pint with a wee dram. £2. 50. Various shops in town, all worth while a visit. Campsite has some 50 statics. Touring is all hard standing. With lots of space and very dry. Even though we had loads of rain. Toilet block dated. But. Very clean. On site laundry used by village. Not a problem. A83 runs by campsite, not noisy Hardley noticed it. Crinan canal close by, worth a trip to crinan harbour. Pitch price £17. 00. 2 adults. Free Wi-Fi. Very good value for money. If I'm in the area again I will stay here.

After spending time here last year in our tourer we decided to hire a caravan this year. The caravan was clean, tidy and was spacious enough for 5 people and 2 dogs. The park itself is situated in the town centre which is handy for the local amenities. There was towels and cleaning materials for use in the caravan. The site was quite and plenty of space for the kids to play and the dog run was a good size and length for them. The locals are all friendly as we found out in the local pubs.

This site is embedded in the town and made an excellent stop-over. The fish & chips from the main street are excellent and were still hot by the time we'd walked back. For £17 we got a hardstanding pitch & EHU - pitches are widely spaced and many are fully serviced, so we thought that was very good value, as the showers & hair dryer were free too. Facilities dated but spotless. With a car rather than motorhome it would make a good base - from here you can head south round Kintyre or north along the coast to Oban or west into Knapdale, or to the stone circles and chambered cairns of Kilmartin and the Moine Mhor (pronounced moyna vor). Site sheltered, in a week where the strong wind was a problem on the exposed sites with sea views. There was a well-maintained dog walk on site, and over the road there's access to the Crinan Canal tow path.

Some previous criticisms puzzled us - the laundrette closes at 10 pm, so the cars coming to use it aren't a problem, and it's away from the pitches. I saw no evidence of workers living in caravans, but we're increasingly seeing this on other sites, and have never found such folk to be noisy - the helpful owner lives on site anyway. There's a bit of road noise, but the hedge screens the traffic which almost stops at night; it's easily zoned out, not a problem. If you want a sandy beach, go to the west coast, not the head of a sea loch - but there's good bird watching when the tide's out. Yes, there's some tidy storage of materials and some older caravans on site, but we didn't find that a problem. For bijou coffee shops and galleries, go to West Loch Tarbert (but there's no campsite near there). Lochgilphead shops provide everything you need for stocking up.

I've tried to think of something that would stop us using the site again, and can't think of anything. So yes, we would return.
