This site is nearest to Tarbert ferry and has 5 hookups in a gravel carpark area surrounded by boggy grass for tents. Nothing previous reviewers have written overstates the awfulness of this site which now charges £22 per night plus extra for the washing machine. Chemical disposal is into an upturned dustbin with a hole in the bottom so it could drain into the stream. They advertise with large posters on the Calmac ferry from Skye. The picture in the advert is the view from the office in the house of the lady

Owner The view from the pitch does not have a Minch View at all! The toilets and shoer are in a rickety tin hut with lopsided wooden doors which don't fit.

We went there as a storm was coming in and we wanted a hookup. Big mistake

Having read the reviews we had discounted this site. However, having visited the competition we had to swallow our pride. It really is the best of a bad lot for the area. How they have the nerve to describe the place as a touring park, let alone a campsite is beyond me. A gravel car park next to a bog with adjacent leantoo facility is more appropriate. Oh, and they'll charge you £18 a night for the privilege. If it wasn't for the small amount of shelter provided by the hill from some severe winds we would have camped at the beach site down the road. We found the only dryish pitch right next to the entrance way and watched later arrivals sinking into the mud. Much comradeship developed between equally incredulous campers of all nationalities, stranded here for the night.

The water was hot and wet. There was a washing machine. The toilets flushed. The midges bit.

The views across the minch were outstanding and the local scenery (and roads) amazing. The 360 degree panoramic view from the top of An Cliseam nearby, 799m, is breathtaking. Tarbet Hotel is full eccentric travellers and extremely tolerant staff, good for people watching. There is a local shop and butcher in Tarbet and a Harris tweed shop.

Great area. We really can't recommend this site but you too may have to bite the bullet.

We stayed on this site for our final night of a tour of Harris and Lewis. Like all the sites we stayed on none were booked in advance and it was very much a case of stumbling across places to pitch up on.

Like other reviewers note, itís probably the nearest site to Tarbertís ferry terminal, which was the main draw for us and the fact that it was getting late in the day. Had this not been the case then we would have given it a miss.

Yes, the site has electric hook-up which is an appeal in itself and a free washing machine, which we made use of. The location, like many sites we stayed on, was remote and pretty but not stunning in our opinion. But beyond this we did not feel the site offered anything more.

The shower and toilet facilities can only be described as uninviting; very basic and in desperate need of a revamp. Maybe this sounds very harsh, but as other reviewers point out the cost per night (£18 with electric hook-up) for Harris/Lewis standards is very expensive for such basic facilities as described.

This is the one site that we stayed on whilst touring the islands that I would not return to.

This is the nearest campsite to the Tarbert ferry terminal. I arrived here by bicycle in the twilight and received a friendly welcome. The tent spaces are separate from the campervan and caravan site and the ground's comfy (a bit watery underfoot, but fine for a night). The facilities are clean and I had all I needed. I found a great spot to drink my coffee by climbing the small hill above the site to sit on a stone overlooking the bay Ė beautiful.

Lovely secluded caravan site in a beautiful part of the Outer Hebrides. We didn't use any of the facilities other than the disposal unit (bucket in hole in ground!)as we have our own toilet & shower but there appeared to be everything that you might require. Site is quite small so would be best to book in advance. Owner was really friendly and was on hand to help if we had any issues. Site was about 10mins from Tarbert (only place to get 3G network!) and there were a few galleries nearby selling local artwork. Would definitely come back!

This is a nice small site just off the golden road with 4 electric hook ups

The site is a relatively narrow gravel patch and we struggled to park up our 4 berth caravan (there was only one other campervan parked up at the time and I don't think we would of managed if it had been full) - so it is probably better suited to campervans.

The drainage on the site isn't great and our awning flooded when it rained. Also the grass area for tents was very boggy when wet.

The amenities are very basic, 1 shower and 2 toilets, (with a gap all the way around the doors) so there was a lot of queuing when the site was full (4 vans & 3 tents). There is no TV or phone reception.

Although this was the most expensive site we stayed on when touring the isles it was the most basic.

The one plus of this site is the electric hook-ups which are a rarity on Harris!
