Reviewer: Andyone 2 reviews from this member

Visited but didn't stay. We needed a flat pitch for a 5 by 4 tent. Unfortunately it had been very wet to the point of water logged. This pitches looked slightly sloped and wouldn't have been big enough for the guys on our tent. There was nobody there except a trailer tent and the whole place had rather the after winter feel, needing a little TLC. The yurts looked as though they would be lovely, but access to the camping could be a longish walk for our slightly heavy kit, though barrows were provided. Neither John or Harvery were there and we were helpfully shown round by another chap. The facilities looked fair but the first impression was that it had seen better days. Lots of rather wonderful chickens around and views likely on a good day.

The pitches were private in all sorts of nooks and cranny on the hillside. But beware with younger children - it would be easy to lose sight of them. This site would be more suitable for older kids.

It is now well signed from the main road and from the golden road. There are eating places fairly nearby, but check the opening times. We thought the price was rather high for what was on offer.

Regret that we only stayed for 1 night. Wish it could have been more.

I avoid clichés 'like the plague' but this site is 'quirky' and 'off the wall'. It is also unstructured, unconventional and brilliant.

Nothing is too much trouble for the owner. Go where you like, do what you want. Enjoy yourself as much as possible. Relax.

Only 3 hard standing areas for motorhomes so we were nice and quiet.

Sadly we missed seeing the playful seals in the Loch close by. Now that would have made a great visit even better.

A great site. Certainly not for everyone but we found it ideal. It is relaxed, with great views across the Loch. The 'facilities' closest to the camping area are good while those nearer to the Yutes needs some work. The drive to the site, especially from the South, is comparable to the drive over to Applecross and there are some excellent galleries along the way. If we are in the OH again would want to stay here.

Perfect quiet site, if you don't like commercial sites this is the site for you. Beautiful location. The blackhouse is a really nice feature, and a quirky place to have a shower. Adrian showed us around and gave us lots of info about where to eat and what to see. Also he makes fresh bread for you and gave us lovely fresh eggs for breakfast. We would go back to this site at a drop of a hat.

Stayed here while working in the Western Isles John & Adrian (sorry can`t remember the other guys name lol). Are by far very hard working and pleasant guys, they all make you feel very welcome and you just feel so at home, , the blackhouse is a real gem where you can warm up on a chilly night with a blazing log fire & chat with other guests, , absolute gorgeous scenery & perfect views, was so welcomed I`m coming back in october guys look forward to seeing you all again, , was a pleasure to meet you all

Wonderful quirky site. Has great bohemian facilities, that is not a metaphor for basic either, if you understand the theme of the site then you will enjoy! Very friendly welcome, with full tour of site and facilities by helpful people. The blackhouse communal lounge is good, especially if the antique burner is going. Splendid loch viewpoint with seals lounging on nearby rocks. All facilities worked when we stayed, hook ups for motorhomes, water but no disposal. Tent pitches are shielded with willow and very randomly spaced, two glamping yurts. Interesting road leading to site, but okay to find if you follow instructions.
