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

Amazing!

This site costs just 2 per person per night and you leave the money in a jar at number 6 (house with red roof). There is no electric hook up but that did not bother us in the slightest. There is what looks like a relatively new building at the bottom of the road which has 2 toilets for ladies and gents and a shower which is coin operated, 1 for 10 minutes.

There is also a washing up room with electric point to plug in your hair dryer! These were all immaculately clean but couldn't find a mop for the floor in the shower room.

There is a field with several caravans on which looked like they were all seasonal pitches. Go through the gate at the bottom of the road and there is a gravelled area to park.

The beach here is just amazing, never seen a beach so big, dogs loved it.

Would not hesitate to return if ever back on Lewis.

It is well worth the trip across Lewis to get to this campsite, it's amazing. A huge stretch of golden sand. And yes, we saw a Golden Eagle! You know you're on the right track when you find the chess man statue. There's a gate and a portacabin, drive through and park at the end, right next to the beach. The portacabin turns out to be clean showers and toilets, complete with flowers. There's also sinks to do washing up. You leave your money in a pot at the porch of the house with a red roof. Watch out for the tide, it comes in quick. No hook up, washing machine or tumble drier, but hey, who cares when it's this pretty.

This little site is in an idyllic location overlooking Uig beach. It is not easily found or signposted but if you follow the sign to Ardoil beach you will find the site at the end of a small single track lane.

Previous reviews have mentioned fields but it would appear that these fields have now been blocked off and the only pitches for motorhomes are gravel parking spaces which are perfectly adequate but do not have EHU. They are however superbly located behind the dunes, or a couple just by the beach

The toilet and shower facilities are fairly new and kept clean and tidy, and there are taps for water supplies. There are also washing up facilities. It appears that the facilities are also used by local dog walkers and runners who frequent this beautiful beach location

The price is great value at 2 per person

Loved it, we'll be back!
