Stayed 1 night and wish it could have been less.

Totally agree with the previous reviewer. Shower is lamentable. 1 coin operated and shower head turns towards the tiled wall. No warm water in the basins let alone hot water.

It was a Bank Holiday weekend and the site was full with canoeists and fell runners. Facilities were stretched.

Owner showed us to a quiet (ish) pitch. This was then surrounded by tents / motorhomes during the night.

There is a great deal of rubble / debris around the site. If you have young children and are thinking of staying, then take care. Parts of the site are hazardous.

Tayvallach is a lovely spot on the map. A pity this site does nothing to enhance the area.

I would not normally bother with a review unless the site was especially lovely or very disappointing! The locality and the village of Tayvallich are wonderful and they are only reasons I could give to stay at this site. The site facilities were the most basic I've come across and the tariff the most expensive for Scotland.

The small toilet block was very clean but had only one shower and two wc's. No hot water and coin operated electric shower. We did not have a young family, however there were no children's play areas. The site is mainly covered by chalets with the touring area bounded by sheds, heaps of gravel and spoil and what looks like a builders yard.

Beautiful location, very few sites in the area - lovely cafe in the village - worth a few visits!

Site facilities are poor and in need of renovation. The nightly fee is extremely expensive for the lack of services and lack of views from the back touring pitches.

As others point out the guy is very friendly but could do with upgrading the site as a priority.

I would only return due to proximity and lack of choice.

Nice site with a very friendly and helpful owner, mainly caters for the static caravan market and as previously reported the dish washing facilities are just a couple of sinks in the open air - no fun if its raining!

The toilets are clean and plentiful but the showers at 1 for just about long enough for a 'woman shower' are more expensive than you should expect on a 18 per night site.

Little on site to occupy children but there was at least loads of room for them to run about.

Location is first class with nearby restaurants and forest walks

Stayed one night. It's a great location - Tayvallich is in a beautiful part of Scotland, and the campsite is smack dab in the the village, right next to a nice restaurant pub.

There are a bunch of statics at the front, then some hard standing pitches for tourers, and a couple of large fields for tents. The pitches are flat and mostly well drained.

The toilets are nice and clean. I didn't use the shower as I was only there one night, but there is one for each sex and they cost 1. The dishwashing sink is outside the toilet block, not under any cover.

As others have mentioned, there is a bunch of farm equipment about. If you have to pitch in the back of the back field, your view will be of things like an old car up on blocks and piles of gravel.

The owner if friendly and relaxed. I was eager to hit the road in the morning and was worried that I wouldn't be able to find him to pay, but he did appear just as I was starting my car. He probably thought I was trying to get away without paying!

The village is very nice. There's a good basic shop, a coffee shop right on the water serving breakfast and lunch, and the pub next to the campsite seems to take seafood seriously, as well as having some real ales on tap.

Very few sites in this area so we chanced upon this one and felt it was a good place to stop over for a night.

As said before the statics have the best views - but we found that using the pitches behind them still gave us a glimpse of the harbour. No other tourers or campers when we were there so site felt very quiet and peaceful.

Site was very clean and tidy, showers / toilets immaculate. 1 for a shower but good and hot. 18 for 1 night with hookup - adding showers 20 for a night isn't the cheapest but considering they have a captive market if you want a site with showers etc thought it wasn't too expensive.

A small shop in the village sells practically everything you could wish for - the cafe overlooking the harbour was stunning and served great coffee, lunches and cakes.
