I can only support what has already been said, the site's location is stunning. The owners are wonderful I would rate this site as a 10 all day long. The Kildonan Hotel next door has excellent food and a very good supply of local ales! Only thing to watch is if you do have a van the roads are a little tricky.

The site description almost fails to do justice to this delightful, well maintained, and extremely well equipped site. At the end of a peninsula, you expect some simplicity and 'basic character'.

Noting could be further from the truth. The owners care greatly about this site - and have made sure that its guests are well catered for, in every respect.

Away from the site, do not miss the lovely forest walk and waterfall - Eas Mor ( at the top of the hill). But if that is too much, just relax taking in the view to Pladda) and then relax in the lovely hotel next door to the site ( great staff and ambiance)

What a cracking site. Spacious and views to die for.

We stayed for five nights and unfortunately the weather wasn't too nice but it didn't keep us in.

The owners are nice people, friendly and helpful plus they're motorhomers themselves, so they know what's wanted.

The beach is amazing. The site runs right onto it and I think campervans without EHU can park right on it.

It's rough and rocky, so lots for kids to do.

Adjacent to the site is a hotel, which can be accessed behind reception, or via the beach.

We didn't eat there, but it looked reasonable. There was a folk afternoon on Sunday and we stayed right through the performance.

The site had a small shop which kept the basics.

Off the site I'm afraid wasn't our cup of tea. No shopping to speak of. The co-op seems to have the monopoly on food shopping with no obvious other supermarkets. Believe it or not we couldn't get a fridge magnet with 'Arran' on it! Plenty with Scotland though.

Roads are very basic and not wide enough to allow 2 buses past each other.

There are designated areas for one bus to pull over whilst the other passes.

We won't be going back, but if your fit and enjoy cycling and climbing, give it a try.

Incidentally, we never saw a seal!

First things first - petrol on the island is expensive. Fill up before you travel: there is an Asda with a petrol station neighbouring the ferry terminal.

We stayed 3 nights in one of the two wooden camping pods on the site. The owner was friendly and helpful. The total cost was 90 for 2 adults, the only additional cost being 20p to work the hair drier. No wifi but our phone network (EE) did work.

The pod was almost 'glamping'. There was plenty of room for two on a raised wooden platform. The door and window were double glazed. There was a double electric socket - we used both a low wattage electric kettle and an electric coolbox - and one electric light.

It was almost perfect with the exception of the rule that said no cooking in either the pod or on the balcony. I can understand the owners not wanting cooking inside but to say not on the balcony seemed harsh. Fortunately we had good weather so cooking outside on the grass wasn't a problem. There was a small kitchen available ( a very nice touch) but it would not be big enough to cope with a full campsite.

The toilets and showers were fine and kept clean. There was also a day room with TV, a laundry and a small shop that we did not need to use.

Others have said that the site feels overcrowded when full. This wasn't our experience as we were there mid week in Sept but I can imagine it would be the case at popular times. There is no space on site for children to run around or play games.

The site is on the sea shore with amazing views. Plenty of wildlife, especially if you walk a mile or two along the coast - seals, otters and many sea birds. Also keep an eye open for submarines as we spotted one! There is a large sandy bay about half a mile along the path.

Next door is a hotel/bistro. We didn't use it so can't comment on the food.

The island is beautiful but don't expect much to do indoors if it is wet. The Tourist Info at the ferry terminal was very helpful. There is also a decent sized Co-op supermarket on the seafront at Broddick. Elsewhere on the island it seemed to be corner shop culture only. One day we walked up Goat Fell to see the stunning views and on the second we visited some pre-historic stone circles. Sadly the boat wasn't running over to Holy Island so that will have to wait for another trip.

Overall very enjoyable but I would say that the island is only worth visiting in decent weather.

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
