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.

This is a charming, unique and, as someone has said before, 'quirky' campsite.

We had read reviews prior to our visit to Harris, and decided to give it a whirl and booked ahead for a night's stay.

Having a 7. 4 m long motorhome didn't turn out to be quite the problem that we thought and although yes, it was a little cramped with two other campervans on the hard standing, we were able to manoevre the mh into position.

The welcome was warm and our host took his time to give us a guided tour of the whole site which, on reflection, is like no other campsite we experienced on our Hebridean island - hopping trip, nor anywhere else we have had the pleasure of camping on over the years!

Just loved the blackhouses - inside they contained the basic facilities that most campers would need. The one with the stone based, uneven floor and old photos of the Royal family, one of which was cleverly positioned over 'the throne' clearly demonstrated someone's sense of humour. Just loved the idea, but not very practical though.

The chicken run was tucked away in between some of the pitches and herbs/ vegetables were grown on site. Self sufficiency for the owners. Reminders of the TV series 'The Good Life' flashed in front of me.

The site is in a blissful location and although the drive on the very narrow, twisty road leading to it was a bit hairy for us, it was worthwhile when we got there. Truly escapism from the rat-race.

If you appreciate peaceful campsites with a 'back to nature' feel, marvellous views, superb photo opportunities and in an area of Harris which appears to have its own milder micro-climate then this site definitely fits the bill.

Warm welcome from owners at site in beautiful location. Charming if a little quirky - but in a good way. Owners have clearly given careful thought and attention to the design of their site and its' facilities which is very much in keeping with the natural environment. They should be proud of what they have created!

The space for motorhomes is a little cramped but in terms of turning and parking, but more than made up for by the surroundings and facilities which are full of character and welcoming.

Spent 1 night at this remote site on Harris. We hadn't booked but phoned on the off chance after a recommendation. Received a lovely warm welcome and tour of the site. Communal black house ideal for campers. The toilet and showers are also located in a black house which can be a bit on the chilly side! All adds to the experience though. Site advertises space for 3 motor homes. We were the only one there the night we stayed so plenty of room although as mentioned by other reviewers, I would imagine a bit cramped by the time you have 3. Price probably a bit steep at 20 a night given the facilities, no grey waste or chemical waste point but we came to Harris expecting the lack of these. Electric hook up though and lovely views so can't complain. We would return if on Harris again in the future.

Having read the reviews we were unsure what this site would be like. Any fears quickly disappeared as soon as we arrived. After parking our van we were given the grand tour of the whole site & the warmth of the welcome could not have been better. The hosts have a real focus on advising campers what they can do, enjoy, and make use of whilst staying at this site, rather than telling you all about the rules - a different approach & actually is well suited to this island oasis. The facilities and site will not be to everyone's taste - thank goodness as they can only accommodate 3 vans & around 12 tents. Location was amazing & during our stay we spotted seals but sadly no otters. We really enjoyed our stay & would recommend to anyone who wants to stay on a site in a beautiful location with welcoming hosts who are working hard to ensure they keep their croft a special place.

We stayed for one night in the delightful yurts. The guys were more than helpful, supplying us with a power lead to run 81 year old grandmas anti-snoring machine! The yurts were so cosy and comfortable with everything we needed supplied. Blackhouse communal areas and bathrooms were clean and tidy. Glamping at its best. Lots of midges this time of year, though, so bring your repellent or better still head nets! Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!
