This is brilliant. A wild campsite that has toilets and showers that are cleaner than some real, sites I have been on. Tents can go anywhere in the dunes and campers have an are just beyond the car park, hard standing and they just space themselves out. The showers are a £1 for a very long shower, lots of space and hooks to hang clothes. There were even flowers in the ladies toilets. It is £2 per person per night.

The only issue can be other units if they don't allow enough space as happened to us on our first night, but we just moved so not a problem.

There are lots of walks in the area and the beach is fabulous.

There is no chemical disposal point that we could see, but I will still give it 10 for facilities because it is not a true campsite so you would not even expect what you get.

Wonderful place.

If you like to wild camp but have facilities in a wonderful location then this area is for you. The Uig Community ensure the showers, loos, utility are pristine and you drop you payment off at the house opposite the entry road to the Sands (no 6, £2/night). There is an area of the Sands with caravans, some there I think on a long term basis and an area that holds 10ish motorhome units beyond the car park. The friendly local Community run shop and petrol station is about 2 miles from the Sands and passed on the way to the Sands is excellently provided with requirements. Even if you do not wish to camp here the area is well worth the travel for the day. The beach is amazing and should not be missed.

Outstanding location. Excellent toilet / shower / kitchen block 2/3 mins walk from the pitches. Local shop near by (approx. 1 mile).

The beach makes this site and some pitches are right on the edge of the dunes.

Cost £2pppn at the house as you turn left onto the beach road.

When the tide is low, you can access another small island via a bridge.

We've just returned from this wonderful part of the world! Discovered by accident whilst booked into and staying at another campsite, we upped sticks and moved the next day! Beautiful setting by the sandy expanse of beach. The facilities, although basic, are more than adequate. Clean, fresh flowers in the loos and a mop and bucket available to clean up after yourself in the shower room. At £1 for ten minutes, my husband and I took turns, plenty of time for both! The fee of £2 pppn, payable across the road into an honesty jar, was a refreshing change from some rip off sites. We only ever use toilets and showers anyway so this was ideal for us. The 3-4 minute walk to the shower etc from the camping area, not a problem whilst admiring the view around you. We're hardened campers and this has beaten anywhere else we've stayed hands down. I would hate to see it change and become commercialised/expensive. It's rawness is a big part of its charm. Would love to visit again.

Site just as described by earlier reviewers. Facilities excellent, and really well cared for. The whole site works on trust, like others in the islands, and it means visitors take some responsibility for keeping it clean and tidy.

This is wild camping with facilities!

The community shop, which you pass on the way, is well stocked, has wi-fi, coffee and fuel.

The tide was out when we arrived and the beach was so big we couldn't actually see where the sea was going to come from!

Exceptional location and value for money, well worth the trip down the road. Spotless facilities in portacabins, someone had even put fresh flowers in the toilets, clean little utility area where you could use a power point.

Showers are metered at £1. 00 there is plenty of hot water to wash, nowhere to drop grey waste or dispose of chem toilets, so do this before you arrive either at ferry terminals or another site

The hard standing area for motor homes is flat and spacious and was quite busy when we were there, tents can pitch down towards the beach. The sands are a minute from the site and are amazing and you can walk for hours without retracing your steps.

The community shop is within walking distance and is well stocked also has wifi for a small charge

The Uig community museum has a lovely cafe with great food and a nice exhibition.

For pushing the boat out you can book a meal at the excellent auberge carnais in the next bay along, not cheap but incredible views over the sand and sunset, booking essential

You can cycle from the site, quite hilly but quiet roads
