Just spent five nights at this very pretty site - almost on the shores of Loch Ewe but not quite as quite a busy road intersects site from shoreline.

The site is set out as a garden with pretty shrubs and just enough trees and bird tables here and there.

The staff are friendly. There is a mixture of grass or hardstanding pitches, sadly no fully serviced pitches which always niggles me in this day and age.

Wifi is spasmodic and if you can get it at your pitch you need to buy it which I object to strongly.

The big gripe with this site is the sanitary block which frankly is appalling and needs demolishing and rebuilding.

Yes, it's very clean but. The loo cubicles are so narrow you can hardly turn around, there are no privacy cubicles and very few showers. The showers are dreadful and its all so old fashioned and what I would call Heath Robinson in all respects.

There is a lot of traffic noise from the road.

Beautiful location, next to a loch and a couple of minutes walk from Poolewe where there is a well-stocked shop and a great hotel that does excellent food and drink.

The site is immaculate with the usual high-standard of facilities that can be expected at a club site. The site has a small shop for the essentials, my only criticism is that you cannot re-freeze your own ice packs but have to rent theirs, which is a bit of a pain when you move on from the site with no frozen ice packs as you obviously have to give them back.

A great area for exploring, there are amazing walks direct from the site. If you want to have a drive out, head to Aultbea to the smokehouse for some fabulous smoked salmon!

This is the second visit to this site, the 1st visit was about 15 years ago. It looks a lot prettier now that they have trees and flowerbeds and the pitches marked out. We seem to recall a flat grassed site and not much else.

The reception and facilities don't seemed to have changed much, thought they needed to be updated then and after this visit still of the same opinion.

As mentioned in other reviews shower cubicles are a bit narrow but are all kept spotlessly clean by the very friendly & helpful wardens.

This is a nice site in a beautiful area with a view across to the lock. Good bird watching from the road even saw an otter close to the shore.

The village is a short walk away as is inverewe gardens, well worth a visit.

Good area for walking or just touring by car.

The site is situated across the road from the loch and the setting and backdrop are beautiful.

Just a few hundred meters down the road the village of Poolewe has a general store incorporating newsagent and Post Office. Opposite is a really nice coffee shop and just a 100 mts further along is the Poolewe Hotel offering good quality Real Ale and food.

The actual site itself is maintained to a very very high standard. All the facilities are spotless - there is even a vase of fresh flowers in the gents! The showers are cleaned constantly and are a pleasure to use because the hot water IS hot and flows hot instantly. There is a superbly well stocked and informative Tourist Information annex. The site shop keeps a decent selection of fresh produce.

So why have I not given the site maximum stars? As a single camper it cost me 13. 05 a night to camp. Double the normal cost for the North Western Highlands. Vastly cheaper if you are a member, but this is not made clear on the website. I also feel the 2 per day WiFi charge penny pinching as most establishments offer this service for free. Too many signs and notices adorn the site reminding me of skool.

Final tip for tent users - the birds roost in the trees above and adorn your tent with 'deposits'. The far corner of the site nearest the road is a poor spot with a very rocky subsurface making it very difficult to knock down the pegs.

Lovely site with friendly managers. Well spaced with trees just beginning to come into leaf. We had beautiful weather and the walking was excellent. Local shop and eating places. Good for filling up and emptying for motor homes.

We will return. As we use our own facilities I forgot to look at those available on site, but if other C & C club site are anything to go by there will not be a problem.

The tent areas look good and there is a place for tenters to sit and to get away from any bad weather.

This site sits overlooking Lochewe and Poolewe Gardens owned by the Nation Trust for Scotland.

The views from the site are fantastic and it is well worth the journey. The best route is via Achnasheen and the road is mainly very good except for a few miles of single track - but this is not a big deal as there are numerous passing places.

Poolewe itself has an hotel - we had a very pleasant well presented meal there even although the service was a bit slow - a really well stocked shop (closed on Sundays) and a cafe.

The wardens are friendly and the site is well cared for. Although we do not use the toilets/showers I did look in and they were modern and very clean.

TV Reception depends on the pitch you are on so if it is important to you ask the wardens for a pitch with good Reception - although we were more interested in the Loch view!

About 8 miles from the site is the memorial stone to the sailors who lost their lives on the Russian Convoys which gathered and then left from Cove on Poolewe. Although the road is only single track the scenery is fantastic.

Ullapool is a 50 mile drive away - again via magnificent scenery.
