I've never come across a campsite with such a great location as seal shore. It's superbly located at the south end of the isle of arran, sitting on the waters edge. The locals tell me it's the only campsite in arran that doesn't have midges !

The facilities are more than I expected. Clean, hot showers, plenty of toilets and there's a day room to get away from your tent!

Now this brings me to the owner, he was an absolute gentleman. Sometimes in life you can be so lucky as to meet someone as wonderful as him. If you don't stay here for its great location and facilities, stay here because the owner independently spends the entire off season building up a village in Africa as and when finances are available. I thanked him when I was there but there's not enough space in this comments section to pass on my utter admiration and gratitude. You're a wonderful man, thank you for everything you do and I just feel so blessed to have met you.

We stayed at Seal Shore camping for a long weekend, we had a wonderful time and experience being our first time staying on the Isle of Arran. We were right on the water with a beautiful view, the small coastal road across a field was hardly used, and at night it was very quite and peaceful.

The camp site has a small shop on site which sells a variety of items and the management were more than happy to get an item for you if it was not in stock. The toilet block was clean with separate male and female showers which were cleaned every day we where there including Sunday. The utility block also provided a separate area for washing up which was more than adequate to meet our needs. There was also a separate refrigeration room for guests without electricity to keep perishables cold.

There where plenty of small BBQs available although on the Sunday the Management and staff put on a great charity BBQ for everyone who was staying.

All in all a great place with a friendly helpful atmosphere providing outstanding views of the Arran coast and easy access to the rest of the island. When we return to Arran then we will definitely stay again.

Spent 6 nights at the Seal Shore campsite in Arran.

The facilities on this site are first class, a very well stocked camp site shop, which is run by a very pleasant lady. The showers are excellent with a constant supply of hot water, toilet blocks are cleaned throughout the day and are always immaculate. BBQ trays are available at no cost.

Whilst we were staying there a charity fund raising BBQ was held, the food served was wonderful, most of the campers on the site participated in the event and had a wonderfully enjoyable afternoon.

We have already made my reservation for 2014

Stayed here for two nights, fantastic location, with great views and easy access to the beach. Weather was poor but we still enjoyed beach walks from which we observed the wildlife- otters and seals, good birdlife and wildflowers.

Down points, the site appeared tired and neglected the toilet and shower blocks were not that clean, and the smell from the male toilets infiltrated the whole block and this included the very minimal two washing up sink area. You were invited to use the very dirty worn out mop to mop out the shower after you had used it, something I was not enticed to do during my stay.

The Kildonan Hotel a short distance from site offered a friendly service and good food.

Would only visit again due to the location.

Well what can I say what a fantastic site !

The owners are so welcoming and helpful.

They even took my son and myself out sea fishing this year which was an experience we will never forget ! Amazing !

They sells the lobster & crab on the site and mackerel is free for a small donation to the Gambian charity fund. And very cheap !

The beach is lovely with beautiful clear water and fires are allowed on the beach this year we roasted marshmallows which the children loved.

There are beautiful walks within easy access of the site and a good bus service available.

The site is spotless. Plenty of hot water, microwave, fridge freezer & washing facilities.

Charging is available at the office for a small donation to their charity fund, which is to help build schools for young children in The Gambia were Maurice goes out each winter.

The site and beach is really safe for children my son age 7 made so many friends and we didn't see him most days as he was exploring the beach.

We have already booked for next year and can't wait to return to such a special place !

I have no negatives about seal shore just a magical place with amazing hospitality !

We have already booked to return next year :)

An absolute gem of a campsite! When we were driving down to Seal Shore we saw the view and both said 'hope it's down there' as it looked stunning. OK so we arrived when the sun was shining which always makes a good site look even better!

Really friendly reception and shown to our allocated pitch (hard standing for the wheels) with well cut grass either side of our pitch. The view looking out at Pladda lighthouse and the sea was just beautiful. The toilets and showers were always clean. We preferred the separate showers which were at the side of the reception/shop although there was no difference in the quality of the facilities. The water was always hot (the temperature could be regulated in each shower).

We did not need to use the shop so did not browse but it appeared to be well stocked. I thought it was a lovely touch that the site offered to charge mobile phones, IPads etc in exchange for a modest donation to their chosen charity.

We did use the Kildonan Hotel a couple of times and found the staff friendly and helpful when we were there.

We visited at the start of the Scottish holidays so there were quite a few children on site who all seemed to love it, particularly the beach. There were also several dog owners on site which did not cause any problems. (Just making this comment as we are now child free and currently do not have a dog)

There is a very regular bus service from just up the road from the site (we didn't use it) which makes other areas in Arran accesible for people who do not have their own transport or motorhomers like us who prefer not to unhook when on site.

Only two negative comments to make:

1) Mobile reception is only ok for Vodaphone (there's alway the pay phone if you really need to be in touch and if people urgently needed to contact you then they can leave a message with reception)

2)We didn't stay over the weekend so missed Maurice (the owner) going on his fishing trip and bringing back fresh mackerel, lobster and crab!

However that's just us knowing that we missed out!

Back to all the positive stuff. We have booked to go again next year and have made sure that we will be there over a weekend!

This site is highly recommended and our negative comments really are 'negligible'.
