We had a lovely weekend here. We loved it. Fabulous views, friendly owners, lovely relaxed atmosphere. It's true that the toilet and shower blocks are a bit dated but they are clean and well cared for. We took the motorhome a short drive up the road and then walked to Ben's beach from Local Hero on a wonderful sunny afternoon. If you haven't seen the film, watch it before you go. It makes the trip extra special.

Superb location, wonderful views across to the islands as the sun set, lots of wildlife, very peaceful, excellent walks along the beaches at low tide.

But, there are one or two areas that prevent this from being an outstanding location.

The toilets and showers are in need of considerable modernisation, you have to pay for hot water for dishwashing, showers etc, and while it doesn't cost a lot it could be included in the price of the pitch.

It was the end of the season but the site does need sprucing up.

We were given a warm and friendly welcome, and would re-iterate it is a superb location and we hope to return one day.

Once again we have had a great family holiday at Portnadoran. We had two young grandchildren with us and they had a whale of a time. The owners are welcoming towards families unlike nearby sites which are adult only. Portnadoran is spotless and has excellent facilities. Only 20p for a shower which is long enough. Frozen products available from reception. A freezer is available in the dish wash area. Laundry with tumble drier and a whirly for good drying days. Thoroughly recommended

What a great place, don't be put off by bad reviews. We arrived in strong winds and struggled with the tent, the owners couldn't have been any more helpful. With general tips, advice on walking etc. The beach and the kayaking is just great. Stunning sunsets and it has its own little micro climate. When the whole of the UK was a bank holiday washout, we sunbathed and enjoyed sunset afterglow till bed time. Only two ladies showers but clean and one is a huge wetroom. So what that you pay 20p, it's hot water, and the site fees are reasonable. The owner cleaned and stocked up on loo roll, ice the auto soap dispenser, radio playing, yes they may be old but they are clean and never busy. Only criticism could be only one washing up sink, so queued

Once! But there is a freezer, for freezing your own ice packs and a microwave too. Also loved watching the horses, sheep and the playful border collies. Arisaig lovely place and if you have a dog it's allowed in, the hotel and the tea garden, mallaig

A bit disappointed with this site which was recommended by my uncle. Loos a bit basic and not always as clean as the we would like.

Lovely views from the site but missus was a bit intimidated with the owners dogs.

The regulars were not overly welcome either to be honest.

The area itself is quite spectacular, wonderful beaches and the sunsets are to die for.

Arisaig is a bit special but if you are going to visit I would suggest the campsite up the road which is top spec and not much more per night.

Mallaig is a wonderful place to stock up on the essentials with a well stocked Co-op and Spar. Ferries to the islands are regular from Mallaig too.

I would like to point out that the only thing that put me off booking Portnadoran were the reviews of rubbish toilets & showers! FEAR NOT. They are clean and I would rather pay 20p for 2 mins of 'hot' water than have cold for free. Please don't be put off by these reviews. I have had many free cold showers but not here.

We arrived in the sunshine and were offered a great pitch overlooking the beach. Perfect, our dog had the best time and ran on the beach - often accompanied by the owners puppy who escaped from under the hedge (She was delicious)and my only complaint is that we picked the wrong week as the scottish children had all gone back to school and my son only had us and the dog to play with - AND the wall to wall sunshine I had ordered disappeared after the Sunday. However it is a beautiful location and we will be going back next year (maybe in a caravan) which the owners do hire incidentally.

It was great to watch my husband relive his childhood years spending time on the same beach he played on as a lad.

We ventured into Mallaig, the Co-op is well stocked. The best fish and chips were up the hill towards the Spar, and a trip to Fort William on the train cost 14. 20 for adults and kids go free on a day return. Loads to do - even in the rain. GO GO GO!
