Any small tenters, bikers, backpackers or climbers used this site? It sounds great for a friend whose planning the West Highland Way solo (Pine Trees has got so popular and she doesn't feel comfortable there), but if anyone has been and can comment, it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Ah! By The Way hostel & motorhome park - didn't know about it but maybe it doesn't show up on my own searches of UKCS. The reviews on their own website look ok & look genuine.

Cheers, Fiona W, it's not on UKCS because it's small and doesn't cater for more than a small number of tents and wouldn't suit a lot of people who want a lot more from a site than it can provide. I've had a long chat with one of the three owners (who is also well vouched for from other sources as to character - got some history and checked up with colleagues in a totally separate connection) and am more than happy.

More than happy with this and I'll be seeing my friend tomorrow and give her his name and the links.

TBH, and nothing to the detriment of Pine Trees at all, but it's off-putting to the small tent solo camper (with car, of necessity), as is increasingly the case, with all the caravans and motorhomes. It's got so much so, with increased charges (which sites naturally have to recoup by putting in facilities that the majority are demanding) across the board, that someone like myself is not longer wanted.

I'm surprised they're not on UKCS. The motorhome section of their website has photos & says:
"Our Motorhome Park Features
15 individual bays. [hardstands in the photos]
Power and TV connections straight to your Motorhome.
Waste disposal facilities.
Free Wi-Fi." MHs can presumably use the toilets & showers on the camping area.
There are many smaller sites in the directory that don't have TV connections....
Looks ideal for folk in smaller tents though - a good find: thanks for letting us know.

I believe they also have a hostel, timber cabins as well a tent camping and motorhomes pitches but not caravans.

We stayed a couple of years ago. Plenty of walkers there, many using the huts I remember.

It's a bit back from the main road so very quiet.

Thanks, Hacksaw Bob and Dot P, it didn't come up on my search for Tyndrum.

Friend has booked instantly upon looking at website and hearing what I told her about the owner I met. It seems that they have an active lady of 80 visit them in a small tent for nearly a week twice a year at least!

Found via Map Search, but its icon is hidden by the one for Pine Trees, until you zoom in.
