What a find. We stumbled across this site whilst touring Lewis in June 2014. As previous reviews note the site is set in sand dunes and overlooking a perfect white, sandy beach with crystal clear turquoise sea; a location that can only be described as heavenly and a rare find indeed.

Whilst the site facilities are basic, as noted by other reviews, it’s more than adequate. The toilet/ shower block is basic but clean and there is fresh water. There is no electric hook-up, although we noted a couple of electric sockets in the wash block that folk used to charge phones etc. You will also be limited to find level ground on the site. Likewise, the site really is remote so ensuring you have sufficient supplies for your stay is a must. In our opinion all the above are minor issues for such a beautiful view; we were lucky enough to get a pitch looking straight out on to the beach.

Despite the clear blue skies it was extremely windy when we visited and we really struggled with getting our awning up. We were sadly surprised by our fellow campers’ reaction to just carry on watching us struggle rather than lend a hand. So, when a couple of Belgian guys arrived not long after us and pitched next to us (and who had an even worse time getting their awning to stay on the ground, along with finding they only had one tent peg), we did not hesitate to lend a hand and give them several tent pegs.

The only down side for us was that we only had time to stay for one night. This site will definitely go on our ‘come back and stay soon’ list.

This must be the best setting for a campsite ever, overlooking a perfect white sandy beach with crystal clear turquoise sea.

We stayed for three nights and our two dogs had a great time running up and down the beach and through the machair. Shower and toilet facilities are perfectly good and clean.

Take plenty of food and refreshments with you as there is nothing close by, which adds to the beauty of the place and the sense of being away from it all.

Possibly the best campsite in the world!

This campsite is just perfect in the dunes right next to the stunning beach. Beautiful location and well worth the drive out to the west coast. No problems driving the motor-home there, but the road is narrow and winding so take it slow. Quite a hike to the local community shop (about 5 miles) so take everything you need with you - remember everything is closed on Sundays - they offer groceries, post office and launderette. This is a small site on the dunes so no hard standings, but they are not necessary as any rain drains immediately. No hookups. Small but nice and clean wash block with fresh water, toilets, showers (£1 for more than long enough), washing up and chemical disposal. Met some lovely people too including the owner who was very friendly and helpful. And the weather was fantastic whilst we were there, so what more could we have wanted.

Spent 3 nights here in July, beautiful site right on beach which has white sands and crystal clear sea. Popular with locals on holiday too, hence a few parties but heh we're on holiday ! Toilets and showers fine, everything you need. Rubbish bins very full, maybe due to be lifted. Midges not bad while we were there, nice breeze keeping them under control. Would use again, but it spoils you for other ' beach' sites !

Even the long scenic drive to this remote site will not prepare you for what you see when you come over the hill. The white beach crystal clear water framed by the sand dunes is amazing and as you drive down the hill you realise this is the site.

We hadn't pre booked so called when we arrived. Clear instructions on where to go are on the gate and a friendly chap came about 6 and collected the £10. Good value I feel, the location is stunning and the basic but clean and warm facilities block are all you need. This is as near to wild camping as you will get

There are a number of caravans there which are seasonal ones. There were a few tents when we were there but you still felt like you were there on your own.

Great walks everywhere and had great sundowners sat on the dunes

Only there for two nights but would have loved to have stayed longer

Great news. All the old caravans that occupied the best pitches on this site are GONE!

Everything else is as it was and of course the location is stunning.

I was also amazed to have a strong TV signal in such a remote place, but I noticed what looked like a tv mast on the northern horizon and bingo it gave a strong signal.

The toilet block seemed tidier than at our last visit. The showers worked fine for a pound coin which lasted ages. I finished my leisurely shower long before the money ran out.

We had to call the 'wardens' and take our fee for the night to their house (number 15 Kneep) a tenner which goes to the grazing trust.

So if you were put off by reports of manky old vans occupying the best pitches, or have previously visited Kneep then you need to take another look.
