We loved this site. Itís a lovely location but thereís more to a site than a location. Itís the aspects of a site about which the owners control that matters. Here, they do it proud.
We were warmly welcomed, allowed to choose our pitch, great discount on Wi-Fi and given advance notice of weather warnings forecast. The site has a main central reception, shop and cafť, behind which are the toilets/showers, separate laundry area and separate washing-up facilities. There are secondary facilities further along the site. However, canít comment on those as didnít use them.
The main facilities were spacious, clean and the showers were the best weíve used on a site in many years of camping. Hooray for one knob for water flow and another for temperature and none of the push-button nonsense. Last but not least, being campers we were able to freeze ice-packs daily, at no charge. We paid £20 per night for two adults and a tent with electric. Not cheap but not off the scale either.
Unfortunately, we had to cut our stay short because of the weather forecast predicting heavy rain and gale force winds for 48 hours. However, the management of the site were full of suggestions of re-locating elsewhere on site, accommodating to our suggestion of taking the tent down and booking into a B&B and returning when the weather cleared. They also offered to credit us with two-days site fees for a return visit. We chose the latter as our tent had already suffered a broken pole. We intend to return next year.
For a breath taking setting, you must visit this site! Right on the West Coast with fantastic views of mountains on one side and the sea on the other. Arrived a little later than expected, but reception was still open. Booked in nice and easy, and then set about pitching the tent - in a force 8 gale! As the site is very exposed, caravans are placed along the coastal edge. We were in a field to the rear of the toilet blocks. There was only a small hedge to use as protection from the wind, although it did help a little, we didn't get a very good nights sleep. But the site itself had good ground, so it was easy to get a few extra pegs in and make sure we didn't blow away! The facilities were pretty good, although there were many toilets, there appeared to be only 2 showers in the Male block. Would I visit again? Yes, but I would make sure the weather was a little more agreeable.
Fantastic site, we really enjoyed our stay here, we enjoyed it so much that we returned a few days later. The views are unbelievable and only 19. 50 a night including electric. ( this is a good price despite what last reviewer says).
Although I do with the last reviewer about the homemade cakes in the small cafe. They were fantastic and very reasonably priced, we also had a breakfast and it was the best we have had in a long time. I thought the shop was well stocked and had some really nice stuff.
I would recommend this site to anyone, and I think the owners ( who were very friendly) are doing a great job and it's only there second season.
This site is in a beautiful location on a lovely peninsula where the kids loved playing at being 'macca pakka' with the ultra flat stones.
We pitched our tent on the hill meaning we had lovely views and a light breeze to keep the midges away, unfortunately we found the ground very hard to get pegs in and twisted several ultra strong pegs as they went through the stony ground.
The coffee shop with the cakes during the day is lovely and a welcome break, however the shop stocks minimal supplies yet there is a Tesco 3 miles away in ullapool so it's understandable.
The facilities are dated and could benefit from a spruce up and the children's playpark has equipment in that is broken and needs updated but overall a nice site in a good position.
For the cost though it needs to get spruced up a bit more for next season.
Ardmair is about a 10 minute car journey north of Ullapool, which provides all the main facilities such as a supermarket, fast food, swimming pool etc. The site itself sits in a stunning location on the edge of the sea, surrounded by hills and mountains. It is quite exposed though, especially if you are in a caravan and choose a pitch along the shoreline for the views. After one night (we were warned when we checked in it was going to be windy) we moved to a more sheltered location in the main field as although the views were fantastic it wasn't worth wondering if the awning was going to become a kite.
We didn't use the smaller toilet block but the main one at the reception was clean, quiet and had good, warm showers that ran on a timer system and not a dreaded 2 second blast push button. Other than a Cafe at reception and a small play park for the kids there's not really a lot of other 'facilities'. You are right on a long pebble beach though.
I can't say there's many attractions in the Ullapool area, but the scenery is some of the best in Scotland, on a good day. Plenty to do though if you like walking, sea kayaking etc.
