Stayed here for one night in our campervan. Great location overlooking the beach. We loved watching the seals and birds in the bay. Very friendly owners. Facilities are a bit old but well looked after. I'm sure we'll stay here again.

We stayed at this campsite recently for one night, the location is stunning but the cost of staying one night with hook up was 22. 00 which was quite expensive (WIFI was extra 5 per day) when the facilities are very dated and showers are a fine art to control the temperature. The instantaneous gas Paloma water heaters used for heating the showering water are something my grandmother would have had in her house 50 years ago. The toilets are a mix of different colours, Gents toilets and showers are located in an old container, with home made shower tray while the Ladies showers are the back end of a residential caravan also used as reception. Not a good site for facilities, the tumble dryer was out of order. We won't be back until some money is invested in a new facilities block.

We have just returned home following 4 wonderful nights camping at this idyllic campsite. We have stayed here many times now and it has to be the most beautiful setting anyone could wish for. The weather was good and warm with no midges in sight. This is a basic campsite but is all we need. Lots of lovely walks round the area with lots of fabulous beaches. Many thanks to the owners for making us so welcome and we will be back.

There have to be (in my experience) very few places in Scotland with a better view than from this campsite. The beach is small but beautiful, with pink sand and stones and what better sound to fall asleep to than the lapping of waves. The views out across the bay to outlying islands, mountains and headlands is simply stunning. Run by a lovely friendly couple the site has seen better days; the toilets and showers are housed in an old static caravan and a converted shipping container. The facilities are clean but old and in desperate need of replacement. Having said that, this site has to have a pretty perfect location and, when we visited, was up for sale, so whoever buys it has a potential winner on their hands if they are prepared to spend some capital and build a new toilet and shower block and maybe put in some hardstandings.

There are approx 15 grass pitches for caravans or motorhomes with most of these right on the edge of the beach with stunning views (weather permitting). There are also a similar number of static caravans (some for rent and some privately owned) and about the same number of pitches for tents. It was blowing a gale on the second day we were there with classic Scottish squally showers but the rainbows that came and went will have your camera clicking away like crazy.

It's a very rural community but it still has a small shop/post office/petrol station a few minutes walk up the road, and we were frankly amazed to find an excellent variety of products on sale. Given that you are many miles from a town or a supermarket we didn't expect to find locally made cakes, skimmed milk, an impressive assortment of wines, beers and spirits, fresh fruit (avocados, peaches etc) and loads of chilled products like ham, haggis etc etc. We live in a small rural community ourselves and know the importance of supporting local amenities but Laird Stores is by far and above your average village shop.

This site is in a beautiful location and you pitch on the edge of the beach. Beach a mixture of stones and sand with rocks and pools to provide endless amusement to children. Very peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Owners are found at the house and are friendly and helpful. As already stated in other reviews, the facilities are very old fashioned and outdated but scrupulously clean and should not deter folk from coming to stay. The Bay has an interesting history of having the small offshore island used for experimentation for biological warfare - now decontaminated but uninhabited by humans and animals - I didn't collect mussels from the beach for lunch!

Gruinard Bay Caravan Park is exceptional. The views when parked up are sensational. Toilet blocks are old but clean and pleasant, the beach is small but with the aforementioned wonderful views. Hookups are available but we don't use one. They are NOT charged for if you do not use one.

There is a small, colourful burial ground to the East of the park in case, as the owner told us you 'feel affected by a presence' as one camper told him.

The owner was very helpful to us when we ran out of gas and went way beyond what could have been expected in generosity and helpfulness.

All in all - do not drive past this park it is wonderful.
