Site - it is on naturally stony ground with very little grass, so doesn't look that attractive, pitches are set in several enclosures separated by shrubs. Easy to find, directly off the main road, with a pricey garage next door. Barrier at entrance which is shut from 6pm - 8am. Surrounded by hills, good views and walks right from the door. Couple of little shops in the village, and the Whistle Stop Cafe, out of the site, turn right and right again, looks like a large shed, but you have to try it, great food and dog friendly.
Wardens - pleasant and friendly
Dog Walk - nice little walk on site, a meandering path, with bridges over a little stream into a wooded area. Can be boggy.
Washroom - In a portacabin, very good and always clean, but problems with ventilation. Very modern showers with hose and pretty red and blue lights for hot and cold. Ample size. Condensation is a problem, after showering all the walls are wet, even those outside the shower, the floor outside the shower gets very wet as well, towels hung on the hook were damp. Every time I went in my glasses steamed up immediately.
We used this C. C site while on a Grand Tour of the West Coast of Scotland and although we did not book in advance there were plenty of pitches available.
The Wardens were very friendly and advised us what pitch would be best to get a satellite signal.
The site facility's are up to the usual Caravan Club standards and the Shower / Toilet block is in
A log cabin style building which has digital control showers which were excellent
The village has petrol station which also sells a varied selection of fresh foods and is a bit pricy for both fuel and food stuff but you come to expect this in the Highlands of Scotland.
The Local Hotel which is 500 yards from the site does excellent evening meal's and serves a good pint.
We drove to Applecross and Torridon which is worth a visit and is an easy days drive around the peninsular. Saw several Red deer on the return journey to the site but alas no Golden Eagles although they are in the area.
The site is very close to Loch Maree which has to be one of the most spectacular Scottish Loch in the Highlands.
This site is situated in a lovely area, with loads of natural attractions. I was disappointed in the look of the site itself- it is all blackish stoney/gravel hardstanding, no grass- which makes it look a bit like my local builders yard. However, there are smaller areas surrounded by bushes which make some parts look a bit better. However, you've only got to lift up your eyes to be surrounded by loveliness. Usual CCC facilities.
There is a village shop and tearooms next door. However, what made our visit was the small restaurant just around the corner- sorry, can't remember the name, but the place is so small you can't miss it. Don't be put off by the fact it looks like a shack- the food was wonderful, sensible prices, and BYO wine etc. Our only regret was that we didn't try it earlier in our stay. Loads to do in the area.
Would definitely visit again. Midges were a problem-but I used Avon 'Skin So Soft' dry oil spray and had no bites at all. My husband used heavy duty insecticide spray and got about 200 bites one night, when I left the campervan window wide open! I was not popular, but I let him use my spray and he got no more. A friend told me the SAS have been using this stuff for years. Now I've discovered it I will never be worried about midges again.
This was a lovely site. Its good use of trees ensures privacy. The wardens were very friendly and helpful. Toilets were immaculate with underfloor heating. Cafe, shop and hotel within 5 minutes walk of the site. Unfortunately, the midgies like this site too so do take sufficient repellent and antiseptic cream!
There is a motorhome service point which is easily accessible. TV reception is a problem but the site does have aerial booster sockets.
A well run caravan Club site.
