Best site ever. What more do I need to say? Our pitch was facing out towards the sea and it was a stones throw to get onto the beach! The facilities were spotless and plentiful. The owner was really friendly, very busy, but always time for a chat and recommendations. As soon as we arrived we just relaxed. So much so we forgot to fill up with water before pitching! Amazing views and the bay is great for kayaking. The dogs loved playing on the beach and you could have BBQ's etc on the beach too which was great. All the other campers were super friendly and relaxed too, there is something about the area. Even the children in the village stopped to say hello. Can't wait to go back, trying to work out how long we can stay there for next time as a week wasn't long enough! Oh and we went home north on the east side rather than down to Campbeltown and up the west and we found it a lot better with our large twin axle caravan. Not so many hills! I know there is a lot of debate over which way to go!

Really liked this site. Stayed for one night with my motorbike and tent. The site is made up of lodges, statics and lots of space for motorhomes and vans with pitches facing out to the beautiful Carradale Bay. I'll be back with my partner in my Auto-Sleeper next year!

I'd phoned ahead to check small tents and motorbikes were accepted for an overnight stay. I've turned up at a few caravan sites which had a tent symbol on their details but which only really wanted large family tents. The owner had confirmed that all were welcome. When I arrived mid afternoon, the reception was closed and I toddled around looking for the tent pitches. Couldn't find them. Asked a few people and they said they didn't know and hadn't seen any tents! Went back to the reception and saw the contact number which I should have spotted in the first place and got directions.

The tent area is at the back of the site but secluded and very nice. Lush grass and decent shelter from any wind. You don't feel like your on a big site. I did have the tent area to myself, Wednesday night mid-May.

Facilities really superb. This is a CC affiliated site so you would expect decent loos and showers but these were better than most CC sites. Clean and modern. No extra charge for showers. Key needed to access facilities.

Discount for CC members. Helpful, friendly owner. Lovely setting and out of the breeze which can get a bit stiff on campsites the other side of the Kintyre peninsula. Reasonably warm evening but not bothered by midges.

A charming site in idyllic surroundings. No manicured lawns, just pitches scattered around amongst the gorse bushes looking out over the Isle of Arran and the Mull. This site gladdens the heart and makes chilling out easy, with access direct to the beach and local roads (mainly single track with passing places) that you cannot drive fast along.

This is an excellent, well maintained site, with easy access to a sheltered, sandy beach and loch. The nearby village offers a shop and hotel with guest beers. There are excellent easy forest tracks nearby for gentle off-road cycling and walks.

The on site facilities are very good but be aware that certain chemical toilet products cannot be disposed on-site. This is NOT a criticism as it demonstrates a refreshing environmental awareness ( there are facilities in the village).

Motorhome owners should be aware that the road north to Claonaig (for Arran) is single track, with soft margins. Only pull over at clearly marked passing places, and keep your wheels well on the tarmac!

A great site close to the beach.

The owner was very apologetic as we arrived because there was a fault with the hot water and showers were not available - he came round early next day to each pitch to say the showers were back on. All facilities were excellent and the site is very well cared for, some of the holes on the approach road had been filled and it looked as though more work was ongoing.

I would agree about the low water pressure but what's the rush when you're on holiday and the sun is shining?

Take care with the road from Campbeltown but don't let this put you off visiting because the area is well worth it.

We were a bit worried about staying on a large caravan park as we prefer smaller sites, but we couldn't have been more wrong - this is a lovely site and we would definitely return again. Only stayed for one night on a touring holiday, but would have loved to have stayed longer. The owner was there to meet us when we arrived and was very chatty and interested in where we were from. There was a problem with the gas for the showers which could not be fixed until the next day, so we were given money off our stay as well as numerous apologies. Although this is a big site, as mentioned in other reviews it is split into smaller areas of 4-5 pitches making it seem much smaller, as well as one larger area over looking the beach. One large shower block with plenty of toilets so no need to wait. Cant comment on showers as we weren't able to use them, but they looked fine. All very clean. Given a key for access to toilet block - although this was sometimes a pain if we didn't have the key with us - ie washing up, on way back from beach etc. A beautiful beach which was great for our daughter and young border collie who could run for miles. Had to be careful of jelly fish, but also lots of beautiful shells to collect. Not very much in the area, but would love to return for a relaxing week of walking and beach time.
