Of course a site on a beautiful beach is attractive, and The Sands certainly doesn't let you down. I particularly like the non-regimented layout even for electric hook-ups, with small clearings for circles on vans, some areas that are inaccessible to caravans, some without electric but still accessible to off-grid campervans, and little clearings on the edge of the dunes for tents - there's something for everyone.

You can see why this place is popular for family holidays, but I would also recommend it for weekends and one-nighters while following the NC500.

There's three facility blocks, and unfortunately reception didn't tell us anything more than their location. The central block which also houses the laundry appears to be the first one built, and lacks modernisation. Lots of loos, but only one shower! Having said that, it was a large wetroom arrangement and the hot water was plentiful (albeit on push taps). The block had also just been checked/cleaned around 9:30am when I visited. Sadly, no evidence of heating or the lovely facilities that are shown on the website. If we'd been told, we would have walked up to another block.

The site has a very well stocked shop (which will keep you and the kids happy through a week's stay), and the fabulous Barn Café (licenced and serving full meals in the evenings and lighter stuff from breakfast onwards).

What a fantastic site. Beautiful location. Spread out over a mixture of field, dune and hardstanding pitches. You could pitch up and feel as if you were in the middle of nowhere.

All of the facilities we used were excellent. We had a warm welcome and used the well stocked shop. The toilet and shower block was the best I have ever used. There was a great room where you could prepare meals, including a microwave, fridge, freezer and cooking rings. You could then sit on the huge sofas or benches to eat, and wash up in lovely hot water!

Although we didn't have kids with us we did spot a great looking playground.

For us it was a perfect couple of nights.

I don't usually review anything but I felt I had to share my views on this outstanding campsite. Huge site plenty of space, !offering beautiful views. Clean and modern facilities. Everything you may need from the well equipped motorhome user to single man tented backpacker.

Very warm and friendly staff. Fantastic fresh and tasty meals in the cafe. (Highly recommended)

A must visit campsite if anywhere near the Gairloch area.

Always on my itinerary when doing the NC500.

Fantastic site, very large with a pitch to suit everyone. Great situation with lovely views and a great walk along the beach and fields. Facilities were fantastic, some of the best we have found. Of course we will return!

This is a big site spread over large areas of grass land leading to high grassy dunes, behind which is a huge sandy beach. You can park where you want as long as you are 7m from your nearest neighbour. The higher more exposed sites have wonderful views over the dunes out to sea, and there are sheltered sites down at the base of the dunes, plenty of hook-ups, and 9 water points dotted about the site, plus a good motorhome service point, but there is only one elsan disposal point marked on the map of the site. There are three toilet/shower blocks, the one on the right which we used was absolutely pristine and even had a bathroom and a large double shower cubicle, ideal if you have smaller children. There is a large fenced off dog walk at the top of the site and a well stocked shop and a cafe. Our only negative was the complete lack of phone signal on O2 and 3 networks, and the site wifi was expensive and didn't work on our pitch. Apart from this it's a lovely site which we would use again if in the area.

A site that caters for all tastes. Lovely location and excellent facilities. It could easily be over whelmed by static vans and seasonal pitches but they seem to have a good balance for visitors passing through and regular customers. One has a choice of being at the top of the site or nested within the dunes and there is EH to both areas. One of the best and good base for exploring the area.
