Sands is amazing.

A lovely beach front location, on a couple of miles to charming gairloch.

There is so much space, and you park where you want! It's quite a sporadic set up- which I like!

The facilities are the best I've used, spotless, ever flowing hot water and a great littleshop.

I stayed for two nights with the aim of going on a whale watching tour. Sadly these were fully booked, so I left but was so happy to return a few days later!

The staff are very friendly and welcoming.

A very fair price too. Gairlochs well worth a stay and the beach at sands is beautiful.

The only downside was my poor phone reception- not the campsites fault and this is advantageous to most!

This is a great campsite, absolutely perfect for kids. There is a good playground and the beach is right next door - even in bad weather the kids will love it. The water is shallow so swimming is definitely an option. A nice touch in the bathrooms is that both the mens and ladies have one cubicle with a small bath, rather than shower. This is ideal if you have smaller kids that need a wash! The on site restaurant has improved significantly in the past two years. As a result we enjoyed two meals there - I'd highly recommend it. Pitches near the dunes are more sheltered but also suffer more from midges. Staff are very friendly.

This is a huge site 3 miles out of Gairloch. Tent pitches are spread out over the dunes. You get to choose your own space. Staff were very friendly. Shower and loos are second to none. Beautifully clean. Everything thought of. Hair dryer and straighteners in the ladies. There's a decent size shop which sells absolutely everything you could need. Kids are catered for with an adventure playground right on the middle of the site. There's a nice cafe doing breakfasts, lunches and evening meals. Only had Toast and Coffee in the morning, so can't vouch for anything else. Reasonable priced. Good fish and chips can be had at the Beachcomber chippie in Gairloch itself. Really friendly young lad serving, and good value. There's not a lot in Gairloch, but plenty of nice walks, and the scenery in that part of Scotland is absolutely stunning. Will definitely be back.

This site is wonderful when it is not too full. You can walk over the dunes from the campsite right onto the fabulous beach with the mountains in the distance.

We have been here twice before and like the openness and informality of it. You can pitch where you like ensuring there is a decent amount of space (7m/23ft) between units.

There are 3 toilet/shower blocks on site so you are usually not too far from one. There is a big covered barn like room with bench tables and chairs for campers, where you can use the microwave and hotplate for £1 in the slot meter. There is also a kettle, large fridge, and a freezer for freezer blocks only. The Laundry has excellent washing machines that wash and spin well in a short time and the huge tumble dryers dry quickly so you do not have to spend too much money on them!

I didn't manage to connect to any of the Highland WiFi Hotspots on site, but the normal mobile phone signal was ok.

The large on site shop is well stocked with food and other holiday provisions. There is a new cafe on site but we didn't try it this time.

I like the relaxed atmosphere on this site. Many of the pitches are in and amongst the sand dunes so you can find a private little space to yourself. The shop on site was well stocked and appeared reasonably priced. There is a cafe on site that I think is fairly new.

There is a small slipway for boats and kayaks for hire.

A large area/ campers shelter was provided with microwave/ fridge/freezer and sofas.

The facilities were the best we had in the 8 sites we stayed at on our two weeks away.

I find Gairloch itself a little tired. ( we used the butchers but not that impressed )

Stayed here for 2 nights. Fabulous views and a stunning beach, no formal layout just park where you want just ensure you leave 7 metres between you and your neighbour. Fantastic showers and toilets and even a bath, although I think it's for the little ones. Large laundry and pot wash. Good playground for children ( although we don't have children) and very peaceful at night. A fab day out is Inverewe Gardens. The site also has The Barn Cafe which does amazing breakfasts, lunches and evening meals and has lovely friendly staff. Can thoroughly recommend.
