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!

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.

Sadly, could only get into this wonderful campsite for one night. View amazing; hard standings brilliant; bus right outside door to take you anywhere on the island. Will definitely go back again but will make sure we book well in advance. Staff and owner excellent gave us great welcome. Hotel next door very nice with good food served.

Great site with friendly staff. Pitched on the shore edge of the site with wonderful views to Pladda & Ailsa Craig. The proximity to the beach & a breeze seemed to keep the midgies at bay. Pub next door where there was food & free wifi available. The on-site shop had a limited range of food at a reasonable price.

If weather is poor, there is a small area to do your cooking and a small TV room with a book exchange.

Reviewer: Tedthebudgie 12 reviews from this member

Three motorbikes and three small tents staying on a Thursday night in mid-May. Just a superb location on the shore with wonderful views. Not troubled by midges at all. Friendly and helpful owner. If weather is poor, there is a small place to do your cooking and a small TV room. Also a hotel with a welcoming bar next door.

Not a complete free for all when it came to pitching which was helpful as not a massive sight. Cars cannot park next to tents but fine with the bikes. Smaller tents get to pitch close to the shore. Nice soft turf.

Facilities very good; modern, clean and spot on. Thoroughly recommended.
