A stunning site with superb facilities, the touring site offers spacious hard standing pitches each with its own picnic bench and fire pit. Great views from all of the pitches. It was very quiet when we visited for three nights, only a couple of motor homes and one caravan, wished we could have stayed longer, we will be back!

The area is an unspoilt, beautiful part of Scotland with lots of places to visit, some excellent walking to be done.

The owners are so friendly and helpful and are doing an excellent job of developing the site sympathetically.

Will be nominating for best CL !

Site owners were very friendly and helpful on arrival, talked us through the site and then showed us to the camping area. Given that we were the people staying there in a tent that night we had a choice of the whole site and were suggested to pitch up towards the top end of the site where it's out of the wind but still with a view of the sea.

The facilities on site are very good. The toilets were clean and had two showers in the gents (and presumably the same for the womens). As well as that there's an electrical charging point for electric cars (first campsite I've seen with one!) and a cooking/eating room complete with gas rings and a washing up sink.

Stayed here for a couple of nights with 2 kids, toddler and small dog.

Childrens play area was close to EHU area and was perfect to keep and eye on but give them freedom. Location was really nice and near to the coast, lovely beach nearby but the nearest one to walk to is quite rocky.

Campfires allowed and they sell dried wood to burn in old wheel rims (very rustic but effective)Owners were extremely helpful, perfect.

Wind was extraordinarily strong on one evening. Glad we were in our outwell and not in our previous tent. Not sure it would have made the night and in terms of shopping you need to stock up a bit as the local shops are a bit of a trek. But a really nice site. Recommended.

This was the 2nd visit to this beautiful site and we were not disappointed once again. Right from the off we were welcomed with open arms and shown to our pitch. Once the tent was up it was time to check out the facilities to see if there was any change. The toilet block was as clean as we remembered, and the playground for the kids was well maintained. The new washing facilities was obviously a job in progress and I can't wait to go back to see them finished.

The views from the tent in the morning were absolutely stunning and was a reminder why we returned to this exquisite site. The surrounding area has more than enough for anyone to keep themselves busy, whatever you decide to do.

I personally can't wait to return next season to once again spend some quality and relaxing time with my family.

Great secluded site, huge pitches with picnic bench and wood burner included, outstanding views right across the Solway. Excellent dog walks and trails and a beautiful bay just 5 mins drive at Brighouse. Not to far from A75 to access local attractions and towns. Approach roads a little tight and hairy but worth the worry when you get there. Will be visiting again next year hopefully. Overall excellent.

Excellent site, friendly owners. Clean and tidy the facilities are kept clean and are excellent. Every pitch is spacious (even with our 8 birth tent) comes with a firepit. Freezer available for use. Very child friendly with well equipped play area that the kids love. Location is excellent with some stunning views of the solway coast, with some secluded little beaches 5 mins walk from site. I would definitely recommend this site to anyone and would definitely go back next year.
