Not the easiest of sites to get to, but once you are there it is an amazing site. We were lucky enough to get a pitch overlooking the beach for our stay. It was an amazingly quiet site with very little traffic. You must use the eco-friendly toilet flush here and it is lower amp electric on the site. When we were there the weather was very warm and the fridge was working so hard to keep cool it tripped the electric out a few times.

The toilets at the site seem very modern and are kept very very clean. The shower cubicles themselves are massive but you will sometimes need a bit of patience to get the shower to the temperature you want.

There is a large amount of information leaflets in the reception area, or the manager will be able to sign post you to anything particular that you want to do.

You must follow the recommended route when getting to/leaving this site. The road that goes off the other way from Carradale is very narrow and a lot of the passing places are currently closed due to being re-surfaced or as part of the Hydro works which are being done in the area. The recommended route is 14 miles long from Campbeltown and has some tight sections and 14% and 16% gradients with switchbacks. The advice here from me would be to take your time!

The site is an excellent base for exploring Carradale, Campbeltown, Peninver, Machrahanish for seal watching etc.

I would definitely return to this site, it was lovely very much worth the effort to get there. We stayed for 3 nights, but I could very happily have stayed for 3 weeks!

Only stayed 1 night en route to The Isle of Arran. Wished it could have been more.

Stunning location and, although we did not have a beach view, this did not spoil the stay. The site is broken up by gorse bushes and each area has no more than 6 - 8 pitches. This creates a 'small site' atmosphere.

The washroom block is immaculately clean. Plenty of loos, showers etc.

Walking on the beach is wonderful. The dogs loved it.

Haste ye back? You bet.

This is a truly lovely site to visit, the owner Colin couldn't be more helpful. We arrived with our new inflatable awning only to find that the pump was missing, he soon sorted us out with a pump. We enjoyed 4 nights there and then returned for another two after finding the campsite we had booked was totally unsuitable. He again went out of his way to find us a pitch even though the campsite was really busy. We will definitely be back again.

This was our second visit to this site as we went last year for a week & on that basis booked one of the cabins plus a tent pitch for two weeks this year.

The site is very well maintained, toilets/shower block cleaned daily & the cabin was excellent with lots of room. We took various kayaks plus an inflatable/outboard with a 17ft boat that we moored in the river for use when the tide was in.

The beach is only a 100 metres from the cabins & touring pitches look straight onto it. Lovely & quiet with nice families who seem to go year after year. Our kids (10, 12, 13) asked if we could go next year for 3 weeks they'd enjoyed it so much.

The beach is very safe. Campbeltown is about 15 miles away with a Tesco/Co-op for the 'big' shop but there's a well stocked shop for basics in the village with freshly baked bread & cakes plus a few nice places to eat out.

Colin the site owner is a star & is about quite a lot if you need anything.

We're already planning for next year & wouldn't hesitate to recommend this site to anybody.

My son and I stayed here for two nights, we had two small x two man tents. Cost 42. 80 in total for the two nights. We didn't need a hookup but didn't see any in the tent field right at very back of the site where we were.

I saw larger tents in some of the bigger pitches in other areas of the site with hookup.

When we were there the touring caravans and some static vans had all the prime locations.

Good clean loos, showers and lots of hot water.

Nice walk into village along beach, then footpaths along side of fields. A nice walk takes about 20 - 30 mins but would not be recommended in the dark. There is another route going back the way you come into the site, turn right and walk along the road, we didn't go this way on foot but I think it would take a similar time.

The paths go through fields where cattle roam freely, there was a bull in the last one but he had other things on his mind and didn't bother with us.

I could only find one hotel with a pub the others were only licensed, so you would have to be having a meal to get a drink, one hotel wanted 23. 50 for two courses.

We were unlucky though, the hotel with the public bar had a wedding taking place on the saturday and the public bar was closed and only to be used by the wedding party.

To summarise I don't think we will go back, it is ideal for families having a beach close by and the kids seem to fly around the site all day on there cycles. So beware, especially on the narrow path to the loos lined by tall bamboo.

We really liked this site. The facilities were very good and we were allocated a pitch overlooking the beach

Colin was very helpful when our gas regulator failed and found us details of a local person who got the gas going again

We found some nice walks although the weather was not good for the two days we were there so could not go too far

Good lunch at the Carradale hotel was much enjoyed as we thought we would be eating cold food until the gas was sorted!
