Excellent site with hardstandings. Ehu and water adjacent to each pitch. Shower blocks very clean although showers require payment. Noise from campers during 1 night disturbed the peace but this is not the norm as groups of campers are not accepted. Beach about 1. 5 miles away but excellent dog walking next to site (in field if no sheep about).

The owners are very friendly and helpful, and will do their best to make your stay comfortable.

We would recommend this site to any travellers taking timeout in Lewis.

As a location to explore this area of Lewis the site is satisfactory. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The costs were comparable to all the other sites we used throughout the Outer Hebrides but in that context the site and facilities did not compare. The hot water in the good utility area seemed to be on the assumption that no hot water was required to wash dishes before around 10am or later. The womens facilities had no curtains on the side window (visible to all) or any shield/curtain if one only wished to wash rather than pay for shower use and the heating to the area appeared to be repeatedly turned off despite the weather. For the comparable price of other sites within the Outer Hebrides visited some upgrade would be of value.

Friendly welcome from the owner who explained all about facilities. Old shower is 50p for x minutes of hot water and new shower 1 for unlimited time! You need a key for the latter.

Cannot agree with a previous review which said pitches are spacious. In some places there is less than 2m between units. This gives the impression of being crammed in like sardines.

Dishwashing facilities are good and, like everywhere, scrupulously clean.

No TV signal although owners have supplied a booster aerial system. Take your co-axial with you.

The owners were really friendly and helpful, but in my view the facilities are in urgent need of an upgrade. If you have a caravan or large motorhome expect to use your own bathroom. If you don't be ready for a trip back into the bad old days of cold shabby washrooms and toilets. They are clean, but not up to contemporary standards, nor the standard of other sites on other Hebridean islands. I would also VERY strongly advise against wasting money on the highland wifi. At the company's admission it is paltry. I wasted 5 on a pathetic connection which dropped out all the time. When I complained to Highland wifi I was told that I didn't know what I was doing and they never give refunds.

Like I am sure many do, I use this site as my main means of researching campsites prior to making a booking.

As such I feel that it is really important that having found a campsite to be in need of improvement I post an authentic review.

We really really didn't feel this campsite was up to scratch. Firstly, location. It has the feel of a run down small holding and that despite initial investment, it has been left to deteriorate.

The common room/ camp kitchen was falling apart, looking in need of decoration, and relied on campers to maintain and clean it. Clearly this doesn't work, the floor is filthy.

The prices charged were excessive. 23 for a grass pitch and then a further 1 to use a shower is in my view extortionate.

There is an alternative, pay 50 pence to use showers which are cold, dirty and housed in a building which I cannot see would pass any star rating by a tourist board.

The pitches are boggy, lacking drainage and exposed.

Sorry we won't be going back and frankly I cannot see how any body else would.

I arrived late after misjudging the distances on Lewis after driving up the west coast and returning from the Butt of Lewis (which is a wonderful place to visit). Both local pubs stop serving food at 20. 30 so the proprietress (such a lovely lady) took pity on me and gave me some food to eat.

The site was full but as I was only staying one night I shared a pitch with other 2 man tents - the pitches were large. The facilities was clean and well maintained and the campers room was an added bonus and it allowed for cooking and eating in doors which made a pleasant change.

Everyone was friendly and welcoming and it was a very pleasant stay.
