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.

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.
