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.

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.

I have been going to Carradale for 38 years now and have always been very impressed, especially now when Colin Burgess runs the site. The shower block is immaculate. It is a very friendly site and safe beach. I couldn't ask for any better for a holiday!

Fantastic location with stunning views. Made journey there and back via South route to/from Campbeltown, only one hill on return journey a 1st gear challenge just after village of Saddell (7. 5m motorhome). Check in no problem, found pitch had no sea view but asked to move, which was no problem, got great pitch with sea view and no path through or next to our pitch to beach. Pitch was grass with sandy soil so good drainage and no sinking or mud when it rained. Used ramps to level the van but most pitches including ours were reasonably level overall. Water pressure is poor, to fill tank takes quite a while. ( an issue in most sites around this area). You need Green toilet fluid for cassette on board van/caravan, Blue is not to be used ( Green fluid available from reception, £10. 00) Motorhome waste tank empty point is adjacent to bins at toilet block under galvanised drain cover, can take a bit of maneuvering to line up with van if you don't have a drain hose. Some pitches had gazebo's/boats/canoes and all sorts of things lying around which encroached on adjacent pitches and gave the overall impression of being untidy. Beach is on your doorstep with totally stunning views. Kids were allowed to roam around site until late, on one occasion 11pm making some noise which may just be due to school holidays. Access track to the site condition has been mentioned on other reviews, pot holes were being in filled as we left 14/07/16. Great walks from the site through the adjacent woods with sign posting, easy walking distance to reach café/hotel/shop etc in Carradale.
