There are not many campsites to choose from on Harris & Lewis but plenty of great places to wild camp. However, if you need to be 'on grid' for a while or get your washing done you need a decent place to stay and Eilean Fraoich is fine for a night or two. Facilities are as described in other reviews. It's a windswept place in an unprepossessing village (ignore the gushing comments on the website!) but it acts as a good base for exploring Lewis and there's lots to see and do nearby. The owner's bungalow is in the middle of the small site so things are orderly. It gets busy here.

Very nice site with lots of room for tents, caravans and motorhomes.

2 toilet blocks with a choice of a 50p or a 1 shower.

A BBQ area although Mary will give you a slab if you want to cook on the grass next to your pitch.

We never booked a pitch for our awning but Mary managed to move us onto another pitch with enough room to get it up which was great when the sun went down and the midges came out.

Great site for visiting The Standing Stones and we also went to Uig which was 90 minute drive.

There is a nice 3-4 mile walk from the site round the bay/beach which is well worth doing.

This is a really nice campsite well located for touring Lewis. It is well run and more formal than the other sites we stayed on in the Hebrides. Mary, the owner was very welcoming and friendly and gave us lots of local information about the local 'Blackhouses' which are famous on Lewis and Harris. The facilities are two-fold, the old ones which are perfectly adequate and the new ones which are more spacious and modern. The showers and kitchen facilities were very good and we were able to cook on two nights in the kitchen block. There are dining facilities but we were lucky enough to have good enough weather to eat out on the picnic benches provided. We had a grass pitch which suited us with a driveaway awning but there are plenty of hard standing with grass pitches. There were good walks from the site and some private homes making and selling Harris Tweed jackets and cloth which we availed ourselves of. It is only 18 miles to Stornaway so good for shopping and the ferry. All in all a good site which I would recommend.

This site is the best site in the outer Hebrides. Lovely flat pitches all with electric. Reasonable fees. Pay extra pound for showers, but well worth it, lots of lovely hot water. Perfect location for touring Harris or Lewis. Visited local weavers and mills. Lots of other local attraction within a short drive, including the famous standing stones and black house village. The owners treated us like part of the family, they were brilliant. Couldn't do enough for you. We even parked right next to their house for 1 night to shelter from high winds and they even provided the electric through a window from their house. Would highly recommend this site. We shall definitely stay here again next time we visit.

Stayed for 1 night and what a lovely site. The owners couldn't be more helpful and very friendly. Toilets were very clean with constant hot water, as was the shower with lots of room to move. There is an indoor dish wash area with cooking facilities and a dining area for everyone to use, they even provide an ariel cable for tv to plug into a tv point beside your pitches water tap at no extra cost, one of the best sites we stayed on on Lewis

This site is one of the best private camp sites that we have been to. The toilets and showers were very clean and warm. The outside space was well set out and was very tidy. The facilities at this camp site were outstanding everything catered for.

We did not know that there wasn't a television signal via aerial but there is a plug in system that gave a lovely picture. The owners on the site loaned us a cable at no cost and they couldn't have been more helpful.

We would recommend this site to anybody going to the Isle of Lewis for a holiday.

The owner were cheerful and approachable fantastic
