Stayed 1 night en route home from Outer Hebrides. Hadn't booked but rang ahead to check pitch available. Arrived late in the day to very friendly welcome from the wardens.

Usual CC standards, good pitches, shower facilities but the most outstanding thing about this site is it's location - superb views all around.

As we arrived late and left early the next day cannot comment on the local area but disagree with a previous review about the site being isolated. It is only approx 1 mile to the main road and from there you can easily access Skye, Kyle of Lochalsh and Eilean Donan Castle.

Adequate dog walk outside the site which was fine for early morning/late night walks.

If in the area we would definitely stay again.

Facilities are clean and up to usual CC high standards. Wifi available but at usual CC fee. TV signal is still analogue with only 5 channels. Warden informed us that CC were still to update site equipment even though the area is now digital. Power stands also have aerial sockets. Warden will loan an aerial cable if you don't have one. Site is convenient for Isle of Skye and the west coast up to Plockton (Hamish Macbeth for those who remember the series).

I agree with all the reviewers before me, about the facilities been very clean and tidy and the site well keptEverything is very organised just as you would expect from a caravan club site, however, I do think it's lost it's character and felt it had no atmosphere. This was our second visit to the site the last time was 4 years ago and we enjoyed it that visit.

We come away very disappointed and considering not to return for our next trip in the area, but what really made up our mind was the additional 10 charge a night added as we are non members. At the time we accepted it but as we have visited 5 other sites on this trip, I can honestly say that the extra 10 is not good value for money.

Another observation was how quiet it was in August, I think that caravan club has priced itself out for non members ( if they can afford to do this good luck to them).

Stayed here four four nights during our tour of the Highlands, set in a stunning location with all the usual caravan club facilities the grounds were wll kept and the toilets were very clean, the office was closed when we arrived so we found our pitch and set up, we were not disappointed, The T. V. Reception is still in Analogue but you can get this via a plug in on the electric post. There is plenty to do in the area and there is an activity centre just outside the gates, there is a Restaurant very close by serving good food called the Jacobite all in all a very nice site.

We used this site on our road home from a tour of the Hebrides. We hadn't booked and arrived after the office had closed but the warden came out to meet us and was very welcoming.

The site is very neat and tidy (as most club sited are) and the facilities were excellent. Although the site was busy there was no wait for showers.

The setting is beautiful, surrounded by stunning scenery. We didn't explore the local area as we were only there overnight.

This site is in a truly stunning location, surrounded by mountains, with the Five Sisters of Kintail dominating the view. The site is really well laid out with big flat pitches; plenty of room for caravan, awning and car and still leaving a good amount of space between you and your neighbours.

The facilities are excellent with loads of toilets, free hot showers, free hair dryer in the ladies, information centre, campers lounge, and laundry room.

We found the wardens to be very efficient but not very personable, but we seem to find this on all the caravan club and camping and caravan club sites that we stay on - is it us or is there a lack of training about customer service?

The site is a bit isolated and we used our car more than we usually do. There is an easy walk up the glen at the back of the site though. It isn't too far to visit Skye, Plockton and Eilan Donan Castle as all are within easy driving distance.

We ate at the dog friendly Kintail Lodge and the meal was excellent. There's a local shop at the garage at the head of the loch that sells basic provisions, and a larger Co op at the Kyle of Lochalsh. The Plockton Inn is a great place for seafood, we sat outside because it was a beautiful day, so don't know if they allow dogs inside.

This is a really good site for exploring the west coast and for those wanting to do some serious hill walking, we would definitely go again.
