We hadn't intended visiting this site but we were driven inland from a north west coastal tour by heavy rain and gales that were the strongest we'd encountered for years. So driving to Kinlochewe even we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful scenery despite the rain and low cloud. It was the end of September so we had fingers crossed that the midge season had ended as reviews for the site often mentioned that they were problematic. Midges don't seem to always understand that beginning of June to end of September is their alloted eating time and not before or after. However despite an even bigger storm predicted for the night of our arrival at Kinlochewe (hence our retreat inland), the usual “lull” of calm and rain before a storm didn't mean we were eaten alive by midges. Thank heavens this year they seemed to have retired from their human feasting a little earlier.

The site is right in the middle of the small village of Kinlochewe which is very handy for using the local amenities. There is a small hotel/pub, a shop/post office, a petrol station/shop and an excellent quirky cafe called The Whistle Stop Cafe where we ate a couple of times. The site itself is nicely laid out and afforded us more shelter than any on the coast could have done, although that night was still a very stormy one indeed. The wardens were simply excellent. I always think they have a very difficult task and need a sense of humour and excellent interpersonal skills to do the job well. When we arrived I was given a cheery greeting from Norrie who was striding purposefully across to the laundry with a hammer in hand. When I queried him, he simply said the tumble drier had broken and he was going to fix it. My silent but quizzical expression prompted a further explanation from him that first he was going to threaten it back into use, and if that didn't work the hammer gave him a second albeit more brutal option. We never did find out which approach worked.

The toilet and shower blocks were in excellent condition, they looked as if they had recently been refurbished and were kept scrupulously clean and warm. The whole site is level and set out on a gravel which drains well (a pleasant change from the mud bath we left the day before on the coast). The minimum standard that we have all come to expect from Caravan Club (CC) sites is refreshing and welcoming when we come to use them. We probably use private sites about 75% of the time, purely because there are more of them in the areas we visit, but so many times with those you pay a lot more than the CC club sites for greatly inferior facilities, even taking into account the CC membership fee.

The day we left Kinlochewe calm had returned to the north west of Scotland and the journey back to the west coast

Nice site. Good location to enjoy the beauty of the locality. Inverewe Gardens worth a visit and the beach at Gairloch is very nice on a sunny day. Will probably be back for another visit at some point.

Fantastic site. Arrived after a long day of motorcycle riding across Applecross from Fort William, made very welcome upon arrival, even though we had not booked, nor were we members. There are only a couple of places to pitch for tents, the first of which was attempted but the ground was rocky, so moved to the second spot as this was also free (no other tents there at all).

Low cost as this was a mid-week tent only for one night. The facilities were excellent. Toilets and showers in a heated and exceptionally clean block. Lovely hot showers, hair dryer, and lots of other very friendly visitors all in motor homes. There was also a laundry and drying room available. Local cafe two minutes down the road, which was recommended though not visited.

Lovely and quiet overnight, slept very well.

Midges galore however, so do take repellent and face nets if you don't want to be eaten alive.

Would definitely visit again, but probably try to avoid midge season!

The wardens were welcoming and pleasant. The facilities clean and warm. Well laid out site with greenery between pitching blocks. Great views in every direction. There ia a cafe and general store near the entrance and a pub that does good food a five minute walk away. A really good walkers site. Television reception is analogue and aerials have to be plugged in near the electricity supply, a long aerial lead is necessary.

Very clean and friendly place. Some hotel rooms are not so clean like the toilet/shower facilities.

Staff is very friendly. And the whole place is quiet and situated in the valley where almost from any side are nice views on the mountains.

The only negative point is that they accept new guests until 8PM.

I highly recommend this place if you are on the way to Applecross.

Village is small and quiet but there is also nice and warm pub.

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.
