I had a wonderful stay at the campsite. I booked for 2 nights and returned for another because it was so great! The owners are very friendly and supply fresh baked bread daily and sometimes even free range eggs from their hens. The 3 blackhouses are fantastic and the main one is a great escape from the midges during the evening. Apart from a lovely bathroom it had a great wee kitchen area (no cooking facilities) and some great sofas and eating areas. 3 lights provided enough light and it was great to have electricity to charge my camera. The owners also provided wood and kindling for the fire and a fishing rod!

The spaces for the tents were great and felt really private in the large garden. I will certainly be back!

Wow! We loved it. Didn't mind taking stuff to pitch in wheelbarrows. Even though some parts are quite steep it all made the experience more unique. Our spot right by the cove was stunning and we loved watching the many seals basking and swimming for our entertainment. The cosy black house would have been brilliant if the weather had been really bad. We were quite lucky. Showers were great and the fresh bread in the mornings was delicious. The nearest town, tarbert, was lovely with a couple of shops and pubs. Everyone we met who had anything to do with the site was friendly and helpful. We will definitely return.

We booked to stay for 2 nights in our motor home after seeing great reviews, but we found that it was not good for motorhomes. There's a gravel area for 3 vans, we were told exactly where to park, even to move along a few feet when the owner came back. This meant we were not level and were about a metre from the van on each side of us. We could clearly hear the children in the next van all night. During the night our fridge went off, we're not sure if that was because of the slope or if the electric hookup went off during the night.

The site was completely boggy underfoot, wellies definitely required. I could see why it's had good reviews from campers as there are lots of nicely secluded spots for tents, however the paths around were like a marsh. We were shown a path down to the water where the owner told us we could make a fire or fish, when we went down we found a couple of broken metal & plastic chairs, a broken boat, some broken glass and a lifebuoy and wooden stool hanging from a tree for children to swing on overhanging the water. I was not happy for my children to play there.

The black house communal building was quite dark and miserable, the door of the toilet/ shower in there did not lock. There is no toilet waste disposal area, we were told to put it down a toilet in another very dark blackhouse with no light or facility to wash the canister out or even wash hands.

We paid for 2 nights when we arrived but didn't go back for the second. Very disappointed.

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.
