This site is very well situated for exploring Lewis. After reading some of the previous reviews we were a little concerned about where we could walk our two collies, but it wasn't a problem as there is a lane just outside the site. The owner was very welcoming and helpful, the facilities were very clean but would benefit from updating a little that said we would certainly stay again. Stornaway is well worth a visit, the town is very nice and would recommend eating at the Palace Hotel, the food was good and reasonably priced, it is advisable to book as it gets very busy there. We had a lovely circular walk from Cuddy Point through the gardens surrounding Lewis Castle, the Woodland Trust cafe do a nice lunch. Having two energetic dogs we are always looking for places to walk them, and had a lovely time walking on the beautiful beach at Tolsta Head, well worth going to. A visit to Garenin to see the Black Houses and museum is recommended and the cafe there serves really nice food. We didn't really have time to do the area justice but will certainly return and to the same site.

Went to this site for 2 nights as we didn't like the one we were originally booked on. This site is well located for going into Stornoway, less than 5 minutes drive away. There are two hardstanding areas for touring caravans. Access is OK although not much room to manoeuvre and space between caravans is on the small side. The showers are hot and clean but a bit dated. The owners were extremely friendly and the site is kept immaculate. There is a good area under the eaves for washing up etc. The site was full when we were there but it wasn't noisy. If you have a dog there is no dog walking area and you need to either be prepared to walk up the road and through the housing estate or jump in your car and drive 10 minutes to the local beach. I wouldn't choose to go to this site for a weeks holiday but if you're looking for some where to base yourself for a couple of days while exploring Stornoway and the adjacent area it's fine. Far better than the site at Shawbost.

Very clean and well organised site. Check in was easy and straightforward, full explanation of procedures and locations explained fully. Hard standings and gravel pitches were more than adequate. Toilet block clean, showers worked, not over hot and a bit tight for me! Discovered another two showers adjoining reception were hotter, more powerful and roomier. Easy walking distance into Stornoway, plenty of shops nearby and buses stopped on main road.

Great site what a warm welcome. We had trouble with van arrived at 10am no problem let us stay for last 3 nights. Showers toilets all very clean. Lots of supermarkets in Stornoway. Prices just like home. We paid £21 a night large motorhome. Will defo go back may-june next year. We are 76years old. Isle of lewis and harris is well wort a visit. Lots of photo's of standing stones. Easy to find well marked and visited lots of tourist from overseas. Laxdale is short walk into Stornoway. Roads are first class. We rough camped with no trouble at all.

We stayed for 2 nights - pre-booked, and that was quite long enough, for the area was not the most picturesque of those we had stayed at on our island hopping adventure. The site was a good walk into the town of Stornoway (which was quite commercialised and with the usual 'chain' stores, could have been almost any town in the UK). A bus stop was at the end of the road but, we didn't use it.

As for the site itself, there appeared to be 2 areas of hardstanding for tourers. We were directed to a gravel one which was very cramped when 5 other large motorhomes also parked up. Turning/ getting in and out was a tad difficult for some. Unfortunately our pitch was directly overlooking 2 camping pods/ wigwams and each time we opened our door, we felt we were invading the privacy of our glamping neighbours. On a positive note, the EHU facility and water stand pipes were easily accessible.

Facilities were adequate and although appearing a little dated, served the purpose. Site owners were pleasant enough.

We had a dog with us and there appeared to be no dog walk as such. We tried walking up the road and ended up in a housing estate, then back along the main road. Not good with a young pup who needs exercising last thing at night and first thing in the morning.

The camping area seemed to be well organised and was busy, but not overcramped whilst we were there.

Decided to stop here a couple of nights whilst cycle touring the Hebrides.

The site has the advantage of being near the town, a bit of a walk but not far on a bike.

Its not a bad view from the site but there are better sites if its the view you want rather than the town.

The toilet block was clean and adequate. The owners were friendly.

Plenty of room for tents on a well maintained field.

Even though it was summer it was not crowded and was lovely and quiet in the evening. In the morning you may be woken by sheep who seem to be allowed to graze the field on occasions. I have no problem with this but be warned.

Dont leave food around because there are some opportunist gulls waiting to pounce
