The site is in a beautiful remote location by the coast. It is accessed via the picturesque single-track 'Golden Road' which runs east from the A859 south of Tarbert. There is a single rectangular gravelled area with hook-ups for about 5 motor caravans, and one 'overflow' site without a hookup. There is also space for tents. The facilities are basic, but adequate and clean, although using the single shower is not a very pleasant experience. The site could definitely benefit from a re-vamp of the facilities, particularly the shower.

The site was well signposted and the charge of 18 per night for the two of us and motorhome was excessive. The facilities were basic and when I asked if I could use the washing machine, the plug for the machine was being used to accommodate another motorhome EHU. For us it was the first stop on the Isle and I would not rate this site highly. If I were the owner I would build a completely new block for toilets etc. And the site would be A1.

We stayed here last minute after a sudden down pour soaked us we needed a shower and decided not to wild camp. The very helpful owner accommodated us with a pitch and hook up at a reasonable price.

The facilities although basic are clean and tidy and shower is hot. There are few facilities but then its a small site. We never had to queue etc.

View from the site over looks the bay where the ferry comes in, and the sites about ten minutes back to the ferry port.

There's nothing but great scenery and a relaxing atmosphere around this site and its worth a visit.

This site is possibly the best on Harris although a bit primitive it suits the surrounds. All facilities are serviceable and clean, even the CDP is just a plastic dust bin sunk into the ground with a hose pipe but it serves the purpose. There is 4 hook ups and plenty of room for tents. 2 toilets with basic wash basins, 1 shower. Nice helpfully owner. All in all a good touring site. 10 mins from Tarbert ferry.

We located the site easily as it is well signposted, but the approach road is not for the faint-hearted tower - narrow and twisty. Setting the caravan on the pitch was difficult owing to the small size of the site (we don't have a motor mover) & we were thankful that at the time we had the site to ourselves.

The pitches are very narrow and we had neighbours in very close proximity. At one time we didn't even have space to park our vehicle alongside the caravan & would have had no room for an awning. Ground is stoned and uneven so levellers are needed. Views from the caravan pitches are limited.

The toilet & a shower facilities are rather primitive and the shower particularly needed a thorough clean (we used our own facilities. The CDU is just a dustbin sunk into the ground, I didn't think too hard as to where the effluent went !

We would not visit the site again and considered it to be rather expensive for the facilities available.

This site was everything that we had hoped for. We extended our stay here to nearly one week and we can't wait to return.

The toilet block was more than adequate but don't go expecting ultra mod-cons. All the facilities are fitting with the area, and to our minds that just added to the ambience.

The owner is an absolute gem, very helpful and totally trusting, as are so many other inhabitants on this wonderful island

If you're looking to visit a site with beautiful views and walks -then this is it!
