We needed a half way stopover when travelling from West Norfolk to a wedding at Arisaig [between Fort William & Mallaig] and Howslack Farm fitted the bill perfectly.

The site is located not too far off the A74(M) - [Jnt 15]. Yes the road to the site is a bit narrow in places but we didnít encounter any problems with our 7m long motorhome. The site has six hardstandings but they arenít very deep or wide, so any towing vehicles or awnings would need to be on the adjacent grass. There was a water point alongside both fences and the EHUís were within a sensible distance of the pitches.

The toilet & shower, along with an information table, were housed in the building on the site and were always clean & tidy. It should be noted that the occupants of this building are not associated with the site at all.

We were charged £14. 50 for two adults and a dog in late August 2014. The owner appeared during the early evening to collect the site fee.

The area is a haven of quiet [apart from the odd tractor on the adjacent road] and we would have liked to have spent longer in the area. We hope to return at some point to do the area ďjusticeĒ.

A good quiet site.

Very clean and tidy with one toilet block including shower.

The access road is a little narrow in parts and is also used by a logging operator but no problems encountered.

Take the opportunity to top up supplies on the way in. The nearest provisions will be behind you in Moffat. Moffat is well worth a visit.

Very good scenery all round the site.

What a beautiful site. Views all round outstanding. Used as half way stop to Aberdeen. Not far from M74. Quiet. Road to site is narrow in places, but so what, the trip was well worth it. Everything you need is down the road in Moffat. O. K so tv reception isn't up to much, but is that important on holiday? The site had plenty of room for the caravans. It was level. The toilet was clean and well kept. Booked in again this year, that says it all.

This is a lovely little site with friendly owners. The toilet is very clean with a nice shower and constant hot water. The views are tranquil.

The only down side was the approach. The road is single track and although there are passing places they are small. We met two tractors and had to reverse which was a bit hairy to say the least with a drop to the stream looming.

The entrance to the site appears to be quite narrow but on leaving we noticed that the post to the little gate can be removed to make it about 3 feet wider. Handy idea!

I would heartily recommend this site if you have a smaller van or motorhome but the approach was a bit stressful for us!

Spent 3 nights on this site. Scenery was amazing woke to the sound of cows mooing in the field across the road. Plenty of room for 5 vans and toilet/shower was clean and a good size.

Owner arrived on the second day to collect payment and was very friendly, she popped in for a chat and a warm as it was pouring outside.

There is a little stream at the bottom of the field but you need to walk along the road a bit to get into it as there is a fence around it.

Moffat itself is a beautiful village with lots of individual shops, non of your chain stores here(except for a co op on the outskirts). All are dog friendly and our little terrier was welcome to browse the rails with us. Plenty of eating places and prices not bad either.

Nice posh hotel if you want to spoil yourselves at the Moffat house hotel.

Will definitely be going back there soon I hope.

Stopped here for 3 nights on the way to Scotland, the site was about 10min off the motorway down a lane about 3mile outside of Moffat, but be careful as a lot of it was only single width but there were quite a few passing places.

The pitches were well marked out on grass and with plenty of space between them.A combined shower and toilet area which was large and clean,(the site owner checked and cleaned each night.)

The site was in a quiet location with nice views but can get crowded at weekends, there was 8 units on on a Sunday night.
