We loved this campsite! Right on the beach it's perfect for children. We were spoilt with sunny days and our two boys spent hours paddling in the stream that runs to the sea.
Facilities were good, clean and plenty of hot water. Showers take a pound, picnic tables to eat at. There's no washing machine or tumble drier or hook up. But the scenery makes up for that, the view over to Taransey is fantastic. We never saw the owner, you leave your money in the postbox at the entrance. Well worth a visit.
The location of this site is truly fantastic beside a beautiful sandy beach.
The facilities are in three containers in the car park and are in need of some TLC. Whilst we were there the handle on the gents facilities had broken and my husband was locked in the until, having pondered where he may have disappeared to, I went off to investigate and found that the door handle had broken off on the outside. To be locked in a metal shipping container with no means of escape is no joke!
At this time of the year parking with a campervan is limited to the car park where there were comings and goings of dog walkers and other vehicles until late at night
At £14 with showers charged at extra and no CDP or grey water disposal point, I feel that the charge is excessive for 2 adults in a campervan no matter how stunning the view
Locally, Croft 36 is worth seeking out for the sea food and home baking
Just a couple of points to add to my previous review (July 2011). There is now a fridge freezer for the use of campers, which is a welcome addition, especially over Sundays when the shops are closed and it's not possible to buy fresh food or milk.
On that topic, although ferries sail to and from the islands on Sundays, there is no bus service and the petrol stations and shops are closed, so be prepared.
Site prices per night are now £9 for a small tent and £11 for a large tent.
The further of the two ladies' showers seems to give a lot more time for the money than the nearer shower. The meters must be adjusted differently as I found that 60p gave a luxurious shower in one cubicle while £1.00 ran out before I had finished in the other.
After a few days in Skye, did not know what to expect of moonscape Harris. We had the fantastic discovery of Horgabost Campsite on the South West Coast. Words cannot describe the stunning setting. The white, white sands and turquoise shallow sea. With five of us jam packed into a motorhome and travelling with friends in their tent, we found the site to be just what we required. Great fun for the kids who played on the beach safely til sunset, cycled their bikes round the campsite and had hours of fun jumping the dunes. Plenty to do in the area, so much so, we extended our trip by an extra three nights and even so, we were all reluctant to leave.
Yes, the facilities are slightly basic, but just part of the camping experience and certainly did not detract. Having just stayed in Skye, the comparison was good, having being charged twice as much per night for only slightly better facilities. A very reasonable £12. 50 per night per motorhome, made for a cheap holiday. Only request would have been electric hook up but not a huge necessity.
Recommend the Butty Bus in Leverburgh for a tasty breakfast, Northton for a stunning walk along to a ruined chapel over deserted beaches then back for a hot choc at Temple Cafe. Buy your tea in Croft 36 - delicious homebaking and freshly caught crab. A day can be spent at Luskentyre beach doing nothing but running across the sands, and again a great cafe in Hebrides Art at Seilebost. Perfect surrounds for walking and cycling and near enough to go for day trips to Lewis and North Harris.
We can't wait to return to Horgabost, the perfect family spot for the perfect family holiday. Thankyou!
This was our third visit to the site and we spent 7 nights here this time. As other reviewers have said, the facilities may be basic when compared with other sites. However, it was busy when we were there and the showers, toilets, basins and wash ups were always clean.
The location is superb and whilst some feel the fees are pricey for what you get, I feel you have to remember how fortunate we are to be able to holiday in such a beautiful location and it remains so, because of such sites that accommodate and provide these facilities for us visitors to this glorious unspoilt island. And hence with that in mind I am happy to pay such fees.
It's great to be able to pitch where you'd like to be, to have a site that is not plastered with signs of 'do this' and 'don't do that' yet it provides water and toilets and adequate showering facilities, what more do we need on a camp site when camping!
The mobile shop which visits the site is an incredible source of supplies and the fresh fish we bought from it was delicious. The Temple Café in nearby Northton is definitely worth visiting too.
To sum up, it's just fabulous! Enjoy!
