Access is via a long, bumpy track, but don't be put off. You will receive a warm, enthusiastic and informative welcome. The pitches are varied, some secluded and some with sea views. The wash blocks look nothing from the outside, but inside they are faultless.

There is a beach and fantastic views across to the Isle of Arran. The local area is beautiful. The restaurant/pub nearby, The Glen (5 mins drive) is also very friendly for a drink but also does fantastic, good quality food.

£21 per night for 2 adults and a tent. A friendly chatty owner. Site wide wifi.

A good base for visiting the Southern half of Kintyre. If you like local food, the Fishmongers in Campbletown does a lovely salmon/chilli scotch egg!

Reached the site later on in the day (brace yourself for a bumpy road into the site). Once there a helpful gentleman showed us where to set up & went into all the in's & out's of the site. We had a lovely view of the sea from our pitch. The wild life on the site is fantastic, a robin watched on at Breakfast & a couple of rabbits walked me back to our pitch after doing the dishes. There is only one word I can use to describe the toilet block, SPOTLESS, but could maybe look at the lighting in the dish washing area had to do the dishes at night in the dark. Would definitely recommend taking the time to visit.

We have been visiting this site for over 20 years, and having camped on many different sites over the years we keep returning to this one.

We love the friendliness of the site manager Colin who is happy to do all he can to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable, and if he canít sort your problem then he is able to recommend someone local who can. The shower block is spotless and kept clean and tidy and hot water is free which in my experience is a big plus, there are dish washing facilities which are more than adequate. There are also laundry facilities with washing machines and driers, and freezers which can be used to store any frozen foods or ice blocks which for us campers is godsend.

The site is set in a lovely area with a beach right on your doorstep which is great if you have a dog which we have.

We have met lovely people both on site and in the local community.

There are two roads to the site, one where it is a single track and you do need to take your time driving along it but the reward is the stunning scenery which is beautiful no matter what the weather with great views of Isle of Arran on route, or the more main road which also has lovely scenery.

All in all we think this a great place to camp and wonít be changing any time soon and would highly recommend it.

The site is run properly by the owner to the highest standards. The pitches are widely spaced and the layout is excellent. The setting is excellent. The wifi works very well and is only a quid per visit. The info sheet has a large scale Ordnance Survey map of the area on the back, which is incredibly useful. Why don't all sites do that? The toilet block is astonishingly large and the facilities are immaculate. What can a say that's bad? All I can think of is that the access road has potholes. If you can live with that, visit this site.

Oh yeah, you have to use some special bog fluid, not the blue stuff, I don't know why, but they sell it for £11 which is OK.

Wonderful setting with direct access to the beach. Very well maintained site with excellent WC and shower block. Stunning views across to Arran. There is a small village and harbour within walking distance. We had drinks and a meal at the Glen Bar - very pleasant.

This is a really lovely campsite. The approach to it is quite magical as you have to drive 3/4 mile down a tree lined driveway to reach reception. The site is owned and run by Colin who bought the estate and is a really friendly and helpful guy. The pitches are quite different in character as some are facing the beach which is beautiful and have a sea view whilst others are tucked in amongst gorse bushes and hedges giving a high degree of privacy. We went for the privacy angle and it was a grass pitch. The facilities are good - plenty of toilets and 4 showers for the ladies all very clean. The Carradale area is the nicest part of Kintyre and well worth visiting. The views alongside the eastern side of Kintyre are unbelievably beautiful across the water to Arran. The main town is Campbeltown and the distillery called Spring Bank is worth doing. The town itself needs a makeover. We did two boat trips from Kintyre - one to the island of Gigha where we had the most amazing meal at the Boathouse Restaurant there. It is worth making the trip just to eat there. The second trip was to Arran where we basically drove round the whole island stopping for lunch at Brodick -fantastic views from there.

This is a site well worth a visit.
