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

This site is convenient for visiting some of the main attractions on Lewis itself which many believe is not over-blessed with good campsites. Our hard standing pitch was well served by EHU, fresh water, grey waste and a TV point - none of which failed once during our stay (see other reviews). Such serviced pitches are few and far between yet very welcome when available - especially in very wet weather. The arrangement in getting a key for the 'unlimited shower' was a bit old hat and irritating (why not include it in the price)and the facilities were, as others have remarked, tired and dated. We did not use the kitchen or laundry. The area between pitches is not generous, nor is it clear for which pitch it is provided; and the open, ground level, chemical waste disposal was a little more public than one might desire. Having said all this, a conveniently located site with some well serviced pitches, and decent views, owned by friendly and accommodating people is not to be sniffed at in Lewis and providing we could get the same pitch again we would certainly return.

This is a small friendly site, the hardstandings are a little close together with a narrow strip of 'plastic grass' to separated them, most have EHU with some also having a TV aerial point as well (first TV signal we'd picked up in the Outer Hebrides lol) There are 2 toilet & shower blocks, the newer (which was closer to our pitch) was named 10 Downing st ! and was clean with unlimited showers for 1 (you pay for the loan of the key to the shower room) There is a laundry on site which although cost 7 for a full load to wash & dry was very welcome as we had been on the road for so long ! there is also a communal kitchen dining area. There is not a lot around the site and the town of Shawbost has no pub, shop or restaurant ! the sea is about a mile from the site. One evening during our stay we did hear a pair of corn crakes in the grass behind our pitch.

Small site with clean but dated facilities.

The owner is very helpful and the facilities are clean but dated. The old block with the 50p showers is clean but cramped. The water is hot and 50p was plenty time enough for us to shower. Didn't try the deluxe version - the 1 unlimited shower in the newer more spacious block.

The washing up area in the kitchen is also cramped but hot water and if you are camping there is a microwave and people were sitting around eating and chatting. We noticed 2 cyclists with enormous pizzas which they had got from a takeaway called Forty North 3 miles down the road towards Stornoway. You need to order and they are only open limited hours but great food.

The site is cramped and outfits are not turned away but squeezed on.

There is a good round walk from the site down to a lovely beach and back or you can also walk round the cliffs. It is a short drive down the coast to explore the Calanish stones and the Norse mill just down the road is well worth a visit

I think the cost of the site should include the shower but perhaps the charges encourage those who can use their own facilities to do so and keep the pressure off the limited facilities.

I do think that some of the units were squeezed in too close to one another but then sites are limited and the owner puts helpfulness and hospitality before practicality.
