This site always promised to be good. We had read a number of reviews and all were good. We weren't disappointed. The weather had taken a turn for the better on the journey and we arrived on a very peaceful Friday lunchtime in late September.

It's a large open site covering maybe 40 acres of grass, dunes and beach with a few hardstandings and all on a well drained sandy soil. There had been a lot of wind and rain prior to our arrival but you’d hardy know it as our camper van had no problems at all over the ground. The views are simply amazing down over the dunes, across the beach, out to sea and over to the mountains and islands of the west coast of Scotland. Electric hook ups are scattered around the site if you need them, but large areas are used simply for tents or vehicles wanting no hook up. There are 3 toilet and shower blocks spread over the site; the 2 we used were some of the best we have ever encountered. There is a wonderful cafe called “the barn” on site which we used several times. It's better and nicer than any cafe I have ever used. A beautiful converted barn with a turf roof, scrupulously clean with fresh flowers on each table, excellent meals throughout the day and evening and cakes that were simply delicious. There is even a small take out menu if you want to dine in the privacy of your own tent or caravan, we can recommend the take away pizzas. The staff were always kind and attentive without being pushy.

The 3 days at the end of September we were there we had lovely sunny still weather. The midges had gone into hibernation so walking down through the sand dunes to a beautiful beach was always a joy. The views from the beach inland and out to sea, breathtaking.

We will return.

Beautiful site. Lovely situation with direct access to the beach. Facilities were superb. Spotlessly clean and very spacious. Well stocked, not overly expensive, shop. Very friendly and helpful at reception. A large site with a mixture of privately owned units, camping pods and camping areas, as well as plenty of electric hook up sites for motorhomes/caravans. Only four were on hardstanding, the rest were on grass. Well spaced out. Cafe on site.

Great site in spectacular location. You are able to choose your own pitch and even when busy don't feel too close to others. The toilet blocks were always clean and lots of hot water.

Fantastic new restaurant with great food

Excellent site with excellent weather ! How lucky we were!

We are used to regimented sites however at The Sands, you decide where to pitch as long as you are 7 metres away from the next camper. After a tour around the site, we pitched near the top, with fantastic views of the bay and surrounding area over the top of the dunes

The toilet block near our pitch had been refurbished last year, which now matched the other toilet blocks. It was spotlessly clean at all times and had family shower facility as well as another room with a bath.

The Barn cafe was open, although still some joinery work going ahead, this did not impact us at all. Great choice of food at all times, breakfast, lunch and evening meals, great chef. Takeaway on offer and lots of cakes on view.

Shop was well stocked and you could avoid going to the local supermarket as everything on site. Can hire canoes etc. Lots of information on the board- walk highlands website info for the area laminated and weather information

Dog walking facilities on site - enclosed area and very clean. It would be great to have a dog bin specifically next to the dog walking area instead of us using the refuse bins.

There is also a 2km circular walk across from the site, again enclosed, so could let off the dogs as sheep in another field. Great views from the top of the hill, halfway mark.

Although we did not have any children with us, there is a large play area near the tenting area which was well used.

Beach was amazing. Clean, clear water and plenty of space for everyone

Highland Wifi is available but I felt this was a bit expensive i. E £2. 99 for one hour and goes up in increments

Very friendly place with all caravan and campers ready for a chat or a hello

Overall a great site, to suit all ages and abilities. Dogs loved it and we loved the easy going and relaxed atmosphere and will be back.

Reviewer: ML60BAR 15 reviews from this member

A wonderful site with immaculate facilities in three blocks spaced throughout the large site. Free hardryer in ladies, or sockets for your own. Laundry facilities in one block. The block nearest the area probably most favoured by tents has a campers kitchen and 'relax in the dry' area with a great communal feel. Ehus randomly dotted about the grassy areas, no regimented feel to this site at all. Even hardstanding pitches not too regimented. Non ehu could pitch up anywhere - and it is mainly level. Excellent well stocked shop at reception entrance, not overpriced at all, the cafe was closed for refurb. Lovely beach just over the dunes, which do act as a windbreak. Also good children's play area. Gairloch has good facilities, with excellent coffee and plum scones to die for at Coffee Mountain. Sadly, we only had one night, could have stayed longer.

This is an excellent site where they have spent a considerable sum of money to provide a campsite with very good facilities.

Clean beach and good walking in surrounding areas. The campsite restaurant was not open due to refurbishment but I hear it is of a very high standard.
