This is a camp site! By that I mean it is about camping. The facilities are basic, one toilet and one shower in an outbuilding. But it has a kind of charm of its own. It is also a very peaceful location with a beach 5 mins walk across the field from site.
The owners are very friendly and helpful and this plays a big part in the site being user friendly!
Our camper van (VW, T5) couldn't fit into the actual walled garden camping area but they kindly accommodated us on an area of grass at the front of the house. (We'd not booked - just turned up)
Big vans would find it tricky to manoeuvre at the site so prior booking and checking with the owners would be a good idea.
Would I return? Yes, if visiting Coll again.
With a tent, it is a great site within a walled garden, on mown grass and there's also a bbq area.
The site is easy to find, simply follow the sign to the airstrip, before you get there, at Uig (not marked) there are two white cottages on the left with a track leading to a large walled area which can be seen from the road. I suggest an OS map is very useful.
The owners are very pleasant and helpful.The site is very flat and well grassed, in fact ideal for camping. It has plenty of room for tents and was virtually empty when we were there.
If you are travelling to Coll you will no doubt be aware that there are few facilities on the island so don't expect much at the campsite. There are no showers, only cold water and one toilet housed in an old outbuilding. If you go expecting modern facilities you will be disappointed but if you are in Coll you probably aren't anyway, just looking for a good pitch which is very quiet and off the beaten track.
By the way, be aware that the island has two shops. The post office does not sell provisions and the store was not open on Sunday or the Monday whilst we were there. Make sure you take any food with you. The island is great for walking/ cycling but I would say a car was almost pointless as there are very few roads, all single track.
