Just spent the last 2 weeks at this great site. It was our first visit to Islay the views from the site are great. The warden is very friendly and made us feel welcome the showers are lovely and hot with facilities being spotless. Will be returning to site in future.

The local hotel bars are good we did not eat in them so can’t comment on food. We ate in the van buying a lobster and scallops from local seafood dealers at Port Ellen.

Coop at Bowmore is well stocked so is the whiskey shop.

A beautiful site on a lovely island. We had booked well in advance and got one of the 10 hard-standing sites almost at the edge of the sea loch. Great ! (Apart from when the wind is very strong !). Our pitch was not that level though. Free and efficient wifi in the comfortable café, where you can also have coffees, snacks and burgers. There is a big camping field, too, which was well used with tents. Local teenagers made good use of the football field, the whole place has a nice feel of community centre, sports club and campsite combined. The toilet and shower block is clean and fine, except that several of the ladies' loos were out of order one day, but this was quickly fixed. The dishwashing area is not well thought out, since one of the two sinks is in the way of a mobile phone charging terminal and a laundry machine, so it is hard to use it when the room is crowded, creating a crush around it. And 2 sinks aren't really enough for the site when it is full. There is a grey water disposal place which is a bit hard to find and awkward to access. There is a nice protected path going the half mile or so into the village, where there are 2 pubs, a post office cum shop, an interesting museum of island life, and a nature centre. There is lots of wildlife to see here, and all around the island.

What a wonderful site. Having arrived without a booking, we were accommodated on pitch 11 - not a seafront pitch, but with a fantastic open view of the sea due to the (very well manicured) local football pitch between us and the seafront pitches. When the wind got up in the night, we were glad to be a little more sheltered. The site is quiet but not remote - the community centre facilities give the chance to socialise, and there is a paved path running to nearby Port Charlotte. We don't have children, but for those who do there is a large playground full of things to do. James and Jamie (warden and assistant) were both really friendly and, thanks to Jamie's advice, we found lots of good wildlife spots and were privileged to see golden eagle and hen harrier in addition to the more common wildlife. The pitch was on grass but drained well and there was never a problem even though there had been heavy rain the day we arrived; the facilities were clean and warm, and the whole site very well kept. We enjoyed it so much we ended up staying nine nights.

The earlier reviews say it all. Friendly and helpful staff and good value for money. A cafe on site the serves good fast food, if you want it. We were fortunate to get on the site. The pitch we were given, had been occupied by a tent until the night before, and was destroyed by a storm. All other pitches had been booked months before, so if the storm had not occurred, we would not have been able to get onto the site. BE WARNED. Make sure you book site and ferry at the same time. We heard of people booking the site early in the year, and not being able to book a ferry crossing in the weeks before their holiday. The problem was compounded by one of the CalMac ferries being in dry dock. We had booked our crossing early, but were transferred to Stand Bye after one of the ferries broke down!

Certainly a site to stay on.

The only site to stay on if you are visiting Islay. As other reviews have said, this site is a good as the other is terrible.

Easy access for larger outfits. Super warm and friendly welcome from the helpful warden Jamie who gave a small tour of the facilities and even offered to help set up! I didn't try the cafe on site but it was open till 8. 30pm so handy if you don't want to cook.

2016 price for a one person in a caravan was £11 including EHU - superb value!

Facilities were scrupulously clean, showers are of the 'changing room' type with communal changing areas. I showered before bed and had the place to myself. Lovely little walk for the dog down to the beach next to the site, or a big field over the road (no sheep during our stay) for games of ball.

Just be aware that the seafront pitches (STUNNING views) are on the compact side (no awnings, car to be parked behind caravan' and it's a wee walk to the facility block from these pitches.

If I return to Islay, I will definitely stay here again and would strongly recommend it to anyone.

This site is located just a couple of minutes walk from the sea and has excellent views. The pitches are not large but they are adequate. Showers are good and each one has its own cubicle but the changing area is communal. There is a dish washing area and washer/drier for clothes. Located within walking distance of village with small shop, pub and restaurant. There is an area next to the sea for dog walking but they can also be walked on the site.
