Stayed here for two nights as part of a tour of the Inner Hebrides. When we got off the ferry at Brodick the area was really busy with the Brodick Highland Games so it was lovely to find peace and quiet at Seal Shore. The owners were really friendly on arrival and throughout our stay and happy to help, with nothing too much trouble. Site was about half tents and half campers, tourers and motor homes so a good mix. We had a pitch near the front with full sea view which was great for spotting seals in the evenings. We had a pitch with EHU and simple hardstanding for wheels of the van which meant we could still enjoy the grass. Tents had to park their cars either by reception or along the front. Ladies had 4 toilets and 2 showers while mens had 2 toilets and 2 showers but still no need to wait. Also an additional 4 showers in another block which was great and all clean and well maintained. Also 2 washing up areas, each with two sinks and a laundry area. Small shop inside Reception, and happy to point us in the right direction for things they didn't sell. Easy to walk down onto the beach for a walk and could have easily spent a day milling around the site and local area if we had more time. As Arran is quite small it would be easy to use this site as a base rather than changing sites, and we intend on coming back here for a week at another time as we didn't have time to do everything!

We stayed here for 3 nights and our pitch was right on the sea front. The site is about 12 miles from the ferry at brodick which is a nice drive in itself. The site has nice facilities and the undercover cooking facilities for the campers was a real plus as the weather during our stay was mixed at best. There is a bus stop right outside the site and we took advantage of this on a lovely saturday and went round the island on the bus with our dogs a real nice way to see the whole of the island. At 20 per night without electric hook up I did think it was a bit on the dear side but with the location and extra facilities it is worth a visit if stopping on arran

Spent three nights at seal shore and agree with previous reviews the view is tremendous, the owners are friendly and helpful and on site facilities are good. During our stay the site was very busy and felt a little cramped and is rather expensive compared to similar sites. The road from Whiting Bay whilst towing is a little challenging, although driving on and off the ferry with a twin axle unit was no problem and the ferry crew were very helpful. We also enjoyed a few drinks and a satisfactory meal in the bar at the Kildonan Hotel next door.

We did a bit of homework prior to booking here.

I have to say it paid off

This is a marvellous site, right on the beach with great views towards Pladda,

The facilities are good, the site was quite busy when we were there, but there was never a queue.

The owners and staff are really friendly and helpful.

As has been mentioned, it is next door to the Kildonan Hotel, perfect for a relaxing drink on the terrace after a hard day on the beach,

Arran is a special place and well worth a visit, if you do? make sure it's at Seal Shore, you won't be disappointed

This site delivered everything we expected from previous reviews:

Wildlife - we saw the otters from our pitch and were able to get close up views with binoculars from the edge of the beach; several seals were out enjoying the sun about a mile East of site and, finally, we chased a Red Squirrel along the road as we left. This doesn't count as wildlife but we also watched a nuclear submarine pass down the Clyde in full view.

Facilities - Showers and dishwashing areas were all high quality and clean.

Value - the price was good value for everything on offer.

Scenery - lovely views South over Alisa Craig and Pladda Island as far, sometimes, as Northern Ireland.

Midge free!

Reviewer: Gilli13 1 review from this member

This site is on a super location by the beach which is lovely for dog walking. The site seems to cater mainly for tents. We were in a touring caravan on a hard standing pitch with electric hookup. Unfortunately all the pitches with hookup are located near the facilities. This means that all the people in tents had to walk past the caravans to use the toilets, showers, washing up facilities etc. We experienced a steady stream of people walking right past our caravan (even walking between our car and caravan!) every morning and evening. There seems to be a free for all as regards siting of tents. It was windy during our stay and several tents were pitched right next to caravans presumably to try to find protection from the wind. We had a small tent immediately behind us and the occupant insisted on squeezing between our caravan and the wall several times a day so we found it impossible to relax and enjoy our meals. This problem could easily be alleviated if the site owner told visitors exactly where to pitch and also asked them to be more considerate to other visitors privacy. Perhaps the hookup pitches for caravans could be sited furthest away from the facilities since people in caravans do not need to use them so often. The shower blocks are adequate but the cubicles are very small. The hotel next door is dog friendly but the food is expensive and uninspiring. Overall I would imagine this site is good for tents but would not recommend it for caravans due to lack of privacy and peace and quiet. Price wise the site was expensive. We have stayed on lots of less expensive quieter sites with much better facilities. We will not be staying on this site again.
