We spent 2 days here on the way up North to Durness, and 1 night on the way back down. We took the 2 days as we wanted to 're-do' the lovely riverside walk which we did last year, and we weren't disappointed, it was just as special as we remembered. Very friendly and helpful couple running the site. They allowed us to ring on our return leg to confirm our pitch so we could just pitch up and sort payment out after. Once we'd spent our couple of days, it made us realise what a special little place this was last year. We did loads of walks, including the Loch Oich circuit, Ben Tee, and the Loch Lochy Munroes. Don't be put off by the 'touristy' feel of the towns and villages nearby, (unless that's your thing), there's plenty to do besides all that too, and if simply relaxing is your preferred option, you'll be hard pressed to find a more relaxed and peaceful site anywhere else in Scotland, lovely, (though the midgies can be impressive at times!). One minor gripe would be that only 1 shower each for ladies and gents on the bottom field is maybe a little short, though we never had to queue, and another would be the pressure in the water tap. Slightly annoying when the midgies are out in force. Great little site though, beautifully landscaped with a natural feel and very nice owners. Highly recommended. We wish there were more over 18's sites in the Highlands.

Peaceful, clean, well run, lots of space, fabulous views, walks possible straight from the site. Helpful information at check-in. Pub a good way off and no shop nearby. No problem from midges when we visited - but maybe we were lucky. Ideal site for peacefully unwinding and visiting lochs, hills and Nevis - though we were just passing through and only stayed one night, it would have been lovely to have stayed longer.

We stayed here for nearly 2 weeks in August this year for my 50th. As mentioned in previous reviews the site is well spaced out and scenic. The owner even loaned us out an enormous tv aerial which enabled us to get reception, though I think this drew some unapproving glances from some other campers walking past. We walked up Ben Tee, did the Loch Lochy Munroes, did the rib boat trip from Fort Augustus, (awesome), and generally had a good time while we were there. What let the site down for me wasn't the midges, it was the ticks. We have a white dog so thankfully they show up on him, but in simply walking him with me to the bins and back he managed to pick up 3 of the little biters, and I also ended up with one on my midriff. He must have ended up with more than 20 on him over the 2 weeks we were there. Frontlining your pet is a must! (Other treatments are available!). I felt sorry for the people there with dark dogs as they wouldn't be as easily noticed, and even sorrier for those in tents. We definitely plan to go back, but probably a shorter stay on our way 'up North'.

Lovely campsite. Good well mown flat pitches. Lots of midges, take your face net or be eaten alive. Toilets, showers and washing facilities very good.

Pub up the road very good for food and decent beer. The distance to the pub is probably too much of a walk and the return to the campsite is steep climb.

An amazing find. Boooked in unexpectedy to be greeted with a very warm, friendly welcome. Site is fabulous with none of the usual rows of vans - in fact a bit difficult to see anyone else on site the pitches are so secluded and private. No children allowed but given the layout and terrain of the site I think this is a very wise move. Toliets/showers etc all up to a very high standard. Highly recommended and am sure I will be returning in the not too distant future.

Visited this site in mid-July and had a great time. We selected it originally because of the kind of site (farm), the location and the favourable reviews on here. This is another favourable review.

Everything about it was lovely (apart from the midges). The site is easy to find and when you arrive everything is well maintained and well organised. The picnic tables are a really nice touch. The showers and toilets were always clean and the water was always hot. There is no noise apart from the wildlife and no light pollution. The midges were a minor irritant, but once the breeze got up a bit (and I do mean a bit not gale force) they vanished. The pitches are generous in size and parking is by the pitch. The owners were very helpful and everything went smoothly. There are electric hookups to some pitches but we don't have one.

We saw several deer round the site - nearly bumped in to one the night we arrived (somebody needs to teach them the green cross code!) and there was a variety of different birds (we are not experts we don't know what they were - little ones and big ones basically).

Being in a valley the site is well protected from wind, apparently we had some one night, but I never noticed it.

Locally, the hotel in the village sells a range of Scotch whisky and some pretty average beer and lager. The food is supposed to be very good, but we didn't eat there. The shop at the Well of the Seven Heads does a stonking breakfast roll and a decent cup of tea - eat in or take away. Fort Augustus is quite close, Fort William a bit further but is larger. Lots to do in the local area; Nevis Range Gondola - not cheap but a good day out, the steam train to Mallaig via Glenfinnan (and viaduct) was too pricey for us, but you can do that trip a lot cheaper by Scotrail from Fort William.

We seldom do a repeat visit to a campsite (only twice, ever in umpteen years), but this may well make our third 'repeater' we still haven't seen and done everything we wanted to do and it is such a great site why wouldn't we want to go back?
