Very steep hill going up to site, scraped tow bar on car entering site. No room to turn whilst on site lucky site was not full. Very basic sites with chippings on top of peat and basic toilets. Top it all off hit the bottom of the caravan when leaving. More suitable for small motorhomes not touring caravans

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

Can only describe this as a gravel park surrounded by boggy ground yes it has ehu a toilet and shower but not very nice. Positive side it is quiet and amongst beautiful scenery. We paid £20 for 2 adults and ehu but will not return.

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.
