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.

The most expensive site I have stayed on in 2 months in Scotland. That said there's not a lot of choice so they have the market cornered. The site is pleasant and clean, the owners are very friendly and helpful. Conveniently situated on the outskirts of Stornoway, 15 minutes from the ferry. There's a variety of accommodations on offer and although the facilities are not glamorous, there's everything you need.

Handy for the ferry is the only good point. Spent three nights on what felt like a car park and booked early ferry back to Ullapool. Nothing whatsoever like the pictures and the facilities are dark, dated and very cramped. Expensive at 25. 00 per night.

Stopped here for two nights. Perfectly functional site near Stornoway but nothing to rave about. The pitch slopes gently but does afford some shelter from the wind. You'll have to carry your kit across the field. Not really walking distance but only 5 minutes drive to town.

Not a lot to say about the site but plenty to enjoy in Stornoway. Mr MacLeod's blackpudding and haggis and Mrs Alex Frances' shortbread to name but three! Plenty of Harris tweed and gift shops. Try the hardware shop for some amazing homemade samosas, unbelievably good. Tesco's not open Sunday's! Apparently Lews castle opens December 2015. Plenty to do for a day out.

Is this the only site located, effectively in Stornaway itself? It has two areas of hardstanding for motorhomes/caravans, the one to the left of the entrance, where we were, newer and flatter but possibly more cramped than the other. On the positive side our pitch had EHP and freshwater yet overlooked camping pods to the left, tents in front and another motorhome right next door! Whilst not desirable in itself, these were not 'deal breakers'. The showers were cramped and in need of upgrading and the outdoor washing up facilities - when we were there - looked unhygienic and unattractive. Yet if you are looking for a site with all the facilities and conveniently situated in Stornaway - this is it. Whilst we would not rave about the site, would we return - certainly.

I think this is probably the largest site in Lewis & Harris - in the suburbs of Stornaway. We stayed here for convenience on our first night as we had arrived late and were tired.

When we were arrived we were welcomed by the chap from the office, he was quite friendly and helpful. We had pre-booked a plot with electric hookup which was a hard gravel area, 3 units parked next to each other facing another 3. We were about 2 metres from the next caravan. We were right next to the camping pods and a bunkhouse & toilet block on the other side and it was really very noisy in the night. It doesn't really look anything like the pictures on its website.

The facilities were OK - we didn't use the showers but the women's toilets were fine. The closest men's toilets were shut throughout our stay, there was another in a different block. We used the laundrette which was good (2 washing machines 1 dryer). We didn't see any area suitable for children to play so my son took to climbing & walking on all the small walls dividing the site up. The whole place had quite a suburban / urban feel so we moved on to wild camp rather than stay the second night we had booked.

On the whole if you are passing through on or off a ferry from Stornaway it is a reasonable place to set down, and probably better for caravans or people who need electric hookup for a longer stay. There are a few things to do close to Laxdale (walk into Stornaway for the castle) but you need to drive quite a bit to see what the islands really have to offer.
