Popped in on the off chance on our tour of Skye and the Outer Hebrides. Sadly they were full, but were able to offer us a pitch with their parents, walking distance, down the road, but allowing us to use all the facilities on offer at this site. Excellent layout, on the bus route into town (bottom of the rd) Friendly, welcoming and very helpful. Only stayed one night on our way to Harris. I would love to stay on the site next time - parents pitch was fine, but would be nice to be closer to showers! so my recommendation would be to book ahead if you would like to stay here. Great place to tour the island from and near town for shopping, pubs, restaurants, supermarket etc

Reading the reviews on this site we were a bit nervous about what we would find on arrival, particularly as it was likely to be a very busy week due to HebCeltFest.

True, the caravan / motor home spots are very tight, and with no parking alongside if you have an awning. We were lucky, a few campers gave us a hand to push the caravan into its spot. This is not a big site and the owners have tried to use as much space for accommodation as possible. The site was well kept and the staff very friendly, attentive and helpful. The toilets were checked many times a day from what I could tell, and the staff seemed to be always on the go.

Accepting the size of the pitches as others have noted, we enjoyed our stay here, and the site is a short trip from the centre of town. There are clothes washing and drying facilities, good hot and refreshing showers and indoor dishwashing etc. There is even a 'vanity room' for drying hair and preening.

This is not a site for spending all day on as there are not any particular circulating / socialising spaces. We enjoyed our stay, though we used the site as a base for sight seeing. Some of the previous comments to us do seem a little harsh. I did note that the on-site visitor book is overflowing with good comments (even when it's been bad weather !)

Cramped pitches, toilets/showers cramped in need of updating. In one of the men's toilets a notice reads 'poor flush minimise toilet paper if won't flush use bowl of water' - 26 per night 2 adults, ehu, internet.

First the good bits, you can get the bus into Stornoway from near the site, or it will take about 30 mins to walk. The lady owner is very friendly and helpful, the toilets and showers are very clean (best showers are the ones behind reception, large shower heads 15 min of hot water, temperature adjustable, and plenty of hanging for clothes and towels).

Now the not so good, we have a medium sized motorhome and could not get anywhere near level, even with ramps, on our allocated pitch on the large parking area outside reception as it sloped quite badly, so we had to move to the flatter area opposite, which has 6 pitches, 3 on each side, which is OK if they are small campervans. We were opposite a large caravan and struggled to get in, thankfully nothing parked on the pitch next to us or we would not have got out again. If you put up an awning, prepare for even the best rock pegs to bend, 6 of ours could never be used again! Basically it was like camping on a car park. The bunk houses and pods were right behind and to the side of us, so if they were occupied it would be noisy and crowded. The nice level hardstandings divided by grass shown on their website are only big enough for small campervans or 2 berth caravans. If you need to be near Stornoway and have a small outfit it's fine, if expensive, but would we stay again? No.

This site is the worse site visited so far on our tour of Scotland. It is cramped, completely lacking in any sort of outlook (the pictures do not depict it in true life), and most unappealing. The grassy tent area shown on the site is a small sloped corner, however, all areas allocated for motor homes and caravans are on what is nothing more than a car park with hook up facility. Thankfully we had only booked for one night, the thought of staying more than that would be most depressing. The proximity to the town and ferry terminal was good and the only other good point I would add is the fact that the showers behind reception are very, very hot and very powerful probably the best shower I've had in a while.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Staff friendly and site clean and tidy. Facilities are a little dated though clean. Found walks for dogs and supermarkets are nearby. Different units available on site from wigwams, bunkhouse, tents, static vans motorhomes and caravans. Bus service available from bottom of road though don't know frequency.
