We stayed here for three nights, using the site to visit the Gardens, Aultbea, and for a day off site with the van to Ullapool. This was actually our first stay at a C&CC site, they like to be known as 'the friendly club' - we certainly can't argue about that, we had a lovely welcome and were shown to a selection of pitches for us to choose from. We had a fantastic view down the Loch, and there are obviously spectacular sunsets to be experienced in the right conditions. The village is Poolewe, a short walk away, with pub, a shop that stocks everything and anything, and a nice little cafe. The magnificent gardens at Inverewe are just short walk up the road. However, the site showers/loos are very dated and particularly the showers in the gents are either scalding or tepid and this seemed to have been a problem for some time. There are two additional showers in the laundry room, but one of these was out of order during our visit. The site fees per night were quite expensive (at least for non-members), almost twice what we had paid at our previous stop. It's a nice place, but has made us rush to join the club - probably not.

Beautiful site, perfectly located at end of Loch Ewe. We were really impressed on arrival with the beautifully manicured site. We had a lovely pitch with a clear view to the loch.

The welcome was very friendly.

We were planning to stay more than one night till we had our morning shower. The enforced Eco setting ensured the water was barely luke warm. The facilities were clean and smelt lovely.

Hopefully next year the showers will be warm enough to make the morning ablution pleasant. Will call to check before we book.

Satellite tv poor, wifi is limited but available at site office.

Nice dog walks nearby.

Local store was closed on our day of arrival. Sadly the village cafe was closed for the season. So can't comment.

Stayed on this site, for three nights, a couple of weeks ago. Have to say the location is lovely and, because I chose a non hook up pitch, I was close to the loch without any outfit barring my view. My intention was to visit Inverewe Gardens which are in easy cycling/walking distance. I was not disappointed although the weather could have been better. Site facilities are slightly dated but still fully functional. One advantage, regarding showers, was not having the dreaded push-button operation with fixed temperature - I hate that set up as the water is always too hot for me, give me a good-old fashioned temperature control knob any day. My only gripe; having been a carer for my late husband, who was totally wheelchair dependent, it really annoys me when I know the disabled cubicle is unlocked (as it is on this site). So frustrating when it takes half an hour or more to prepare a special needs person to get along to have a shower, only to find a fully independent person, using it. Supposed to be discrimination against the disabled, by providing keys. Eh? Sorry, special needs is special needs - the clue is in the description. Rant over! I have to say the flower display around the facilities was beautiful! Well done site managers! For a good cycle ride, I would recommend a trip to Cove, along a single track road with beautiful scenery. Don't choose a Wednesday though, if you want to indulge yourself in the lovely coffee shop at the end of that road, that being Bridge Cottage Cafe and Gallery, as it is closed on that day.

Clean and tidy site with friendly staff. Clean but dated wash/toilet facilities. Tiny cubicles. Lovely location, ideal for walking in the hills when the weather permits. Local pipe band entertained us on the site!

Our second visit to this site in two years. It's a lovely spot, flat site with a small shop. Wardens are great. The showers and loos are slightly dated but very clean; there's no real need for super-modern facilities!

There is a shop in the village which has just about anything you could need (also contains a post office where you can withdraw cash). Every Tuesday there's a market in the village hall - lots of craft objects, plants, antiques, fresh fruit and veg, bread, meat and fish. They also do bacon butties/scones/cake/coffee/tea.

Some lovely walks nearby.

Inverewe Gardens definitely worth a visit (in walking distance) and it's also worth going to the Perfume Studio and Aroma Café at Mellon Charles - about 7 miles away. It's easily accessible even in a fairly large motorhome and there's plenty of parking. Food and staff both lovely.

There is a strong wartime connection in the area so it's worth seeking out information on it.

Good meal at the local hotel (also in walking distance) - dogs more than welcome.

We were there in mid June and the sunsets were fabulous.

Gairloch has marvellous beaches and they are dog friendly. There's a car park next to the golf club; the clubhouse is open to the public and does light lunches/teas, again the staff are great.

Another site we'll revisit!

Stayed here for 2 nights. It's a very pretty if quite small and basic sight but the facilities did their job and I never had to queue for anything, although I did think that the showers were a bit weak in terms of power compared to other sites

Staff very friendly and helpful

Enjoyed a great walk directly from the site around a inland loch just behind the site.

In terms of dining, you either cook your own or walk 10 mins to the Poolewe Hotel which was quite adequate without being flashy in any way. It's also your only real opportunity for internet access.

TV and phone reception were quite minimal, but you may not see that as a bad thing.

The site is right next to the main coast road. You are aware of the traffic during the day, but I was never kept awake at night.
