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.

We were booked into here for the one night en-route to N. Uist. It is all hardstanding. The owner greeted us and explained about the sites facilities and any extra costs- the original showers cost 50p for six minutes or alternatively one could opt for the new block where one paid £1 and was given a key which allowed for an unlimited time in the shower. The facilities were scrupulously clean & there was a small comfortable room in which to socialise with other guests (no dogs) if the fancy took. We were surprised by the overall bleakness and seemingly unremitting peat bog of Lewis but the people were very friendly and sociable, in fact when I took a wrong turn and had to ask at a croft if I could turn my 'van around in the yard the owner after introducing himself enquired where were from, it then transpired that he was the cousin of the minister of our local church. He even invited us to stay the night! There is a bay with good sand nearby, access is by a narrow track suitable only for smaller vehicles so we parked at the end and walked the short distance down with the dogs, they loved the beach for running about on. A nice simple site that we would use again for a stopover but probably not for any longer.

Stayed for 3 nights, the owners were really helpful and friendly and gave us the best pitch (probably as we had booked well in advance). Yes, it does look like a car park, but at least you won't get stuck if it rains. Handy having the water tap next to every pitch.

The toilet/shower facilities are adequate, you have to pay 50p for a shower, but when you take into consideration how reasonable the price of the pitches are, then this is not a problem.

This site is ideal for touring Lewis and Harris, nowhere is too far away. Facilities are good, £1 for unlimited hot shower or 50p for other shower (ladies). Good kitchen facilities, wash up area, cooker, fridge and microwave plus tables and chairs for eating or activities like board games, cards etc. Owners could not be more friendly and helpful. We have stayed here for many years and would not go anywhere else. Also Water and Elsan point too

As a regular visitor to Eilean Fraoich campsite at Shawbost in Lewis, I know that the owners pride themselves on the friendliness and cleanliness of the site. They also make every effort to ensure that their visitors have an enjoyable stay.

Unfortunately there are some people that you just can't please, and instead of bringing any grievances to the attention of the owners, who I'm sure would make every effort to address the problem, prefer to turn themselves into 'travelling trolls' on internet sites.

I myself have always found it an enjoyable and relaxing place to stay, and would highly recommend it, so have many others as shown by the favourable comments in the site visitors book

Reviewer: Dave 418 12 reviews from this member

We stayed on this site for four nights on our tour of Scotland. I was a bit unsure when we arrived, as per the rest of Lewis it feels very remote. The site owners made us very welcome. We were on the grass behind the toilet block and found it to be ok. The toilet block is a bit dated and really needs a refurbish. We used our own shower ect so it really didn't mater too much. It seems that you are in the middle of no were but once you start to look around the area there are lots of things to do and see. We met quite a few people that used the site regularly so its must have been ok for them. As we left the owners came and said goodbye.
