Stayed at Moorcroft for 3 nights whilst touring the western isles. First class facilities toilets and showers of the highest order, comfortable size pitches with mains hook up hardstanding for caravans and motorhomes. Friendly owners. For those without their own units there is a bunkhouse which is really top class, don't know charges but looked very good. The name bunkhouse doesn't do it justice. Most pitches look out over the bay which is stunning if the weather is good and fortunately we were blessed with excellent weather. Make sure you have enough food etc as the shops were non existent. Would we visit again the answer is a definite yes.

We had 3 nights here in very windy weather. The site was lovely, very clean, hot water, washing machine, dryer etc. , etc. , - everything you need.

As it is a new site everything was in excellent condition. The toilet block was very well thought out and the showers were hot and efficient. The standard of the buildings was very high.

We had just moved from a grim site elsewhere so it was a relief to find Moorcroft. The owners were so helpful - even arranging for my husband to watch Man. United in the bunkhouse which happened to be empty at the time!

Perhaps one small criticism is that the site is fairly small and units close together. The thoughtful positioning of the units however ensured a good amount of privacy.

It was pretty full all the time we were there so perhaps it is advisable to book ahead.

Previous reviewers say it all regarding the site top class facilities and a lovely setting. We stayed 2 nights and found everything to be pretty well perfect.

Opposite the camp site entrance is one of the Millennium Crofters footpaths fairly well marked out footpaths into the hills and around the lochs. Stunning scenery and fairly easy walking. You can chose any number of paths from a 20 minute stroll to a 2-3 hours circular walk.

There is a shop in the township and also there are 3 Coop supermarkets on the Hebrides which are really well stocked. Of the independent super-markets (several around) we found MacEllands in Bebenbecular to be outstanding prices were competitve and they stocked everything.

If you need toilet chemicals make sure you take it with you - none of the shops stocked - in the end we found it in the hardware shop in Carnan on the main road.

So much to see and do throughout the islands. Many wildcamp but to be honest there are not that many suitable areas for this. We found a few that are marked as picnic areas and are well out of the way.

This site is central enough to see the whole of the islands. Be warned its very popular and you may need to book - when we were there it was full.

One of the last opportunities of the year to take our new Omega 250 tent out for test in the Outer Hebrides. Not a surprise in mid October, we arrived to an empty site and had the pick of the pitches overlooking the sandy tidal flats of the ford between Benbecula and North Uist. Watching the tide creeping in slowly was a very relaxing way to spend a sunny afternoon at our location overlooking the water. This was the first season for this new site at Moorcroft and judging by the positive comments left in the visitors book appears to have been an overwhelming success.

Facilities for campers include an excellent shower and toilet annex to the main Bunkhouse. There's even a hairdryer available for campers in the common space in the annex. The big plus is a charming kitchen and dining space in a converted byre just for the campers that has little vintage touches that make it feel unique. Beautiful spot that's only 15 minutes drive from the main port at Lochmaddy and 10 minutes drive to a local shop at Clachan crossroads.

Highly recommend using the Moorcroft site as a base for exploring the Uists and if you're not camping make a booking for the Bunkhouse.

This campsite was the best we've ever visited.

We arrived and pitched our tent, however the tent pole snapped and the owner couldn't have done more to help.

The site only opened a few weeks ago, and had been very well thought out. The campers kitchen is just what is needed on the Outer Hebrides when the weather is less than welcoming! Fitted with washer, dryer, fridge, cooker, kettle, microwave, even crockery and a table to eat at - it was perfect.

The shower/toilet facilities were spotless, cleaned every day, hot water and great showers. Included in the facilities was information on local attractions, which was really helpful.

The owners very welcoming, friendly and warm.

If you're on the Uists looking for a campsite/bunkhouse, don't go anywhere else, this place is wonderful!

Spent 3 nights at this site. Catriona the owner has created a fabulous site, the facilities are modern, immaculately clean and in a great location for those who like to walk, fish or cycle and is a good base to tour North and South Uist.

The site had only been open for about a month when my husband and I visited, it was clear a lot of thought had gone into what campers are looking for in a good site. This was by far the best of the 3 sites we stayed at in the Hebrides, we drove into a couple and straight back back out again.

There is handy well equipped campers kitchen, with an oven, electric hob, microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer. (both of which are very reasonably priced at 3 a load. The toilet block is atached to the old farmhouse which has been converted into a 3 bedroom bunkhouse (@ 14 per night it is good value).It was nice to have a shower that wasn't timed or to constantly have to push a water saving on/of button. We paid 19 per night for electric hook up and hardstanding for our touring caravan. There was reasonable space for each pitch, a separate fenced area with picnic benches. Disabled facilities have been included with a large disabled toilet and shower room.

The site has a great outlook, looking out to sea and across the bay from Benbecula airport. It is well located for several good resturants all selling local produce. Catriona is very helpful with advice on local attractions, and the best places to eat and drink. Unfortunately we missed out on a few, which is a perfect excuse for us to return to this great site.
