Here we are again, if you want to read about the camp site facilities read other reviews, if you want to read why to come here read on. We always say we will go somewhere else, but never seem to get there, why, location. We think this is the best campsite of all the ones around the area. Just getting to the shore site makes it seem special, its right at the end of a thin twisty road not just turn off the road where everybody and their dog can see you, so road wise very kid safe. Ok not the best shower facilities in the world, but good enough, we manage for two weeks no problem, and some improvements were being done while we were there this year. Must say though, note to cleaner; shower and toilet cubicles have walls as well as floors, and I don't think you really need that many disinfectant blocks in the urinal. Back to the location in general, if you like walking and hiking, ideal base, fishing, watching birds and deer or seals, whales, sharks and dolphins. Again ideal. Good food, great food and unbelievable food all close at hand from the camp site to the mission, to pubs and bistro's then onto Michelin star dining for the holiday treat ( we have no kids), all local to lochinver. What else, besides some of the best scenery anywhere, then the beaches some of the clearest waters with cleanest silver sand ever seen, better than the caribbean, are you starting to get the picture. Quietness have a loch to yourself for the day, little traffic empty roads, peace and tranquillity, relax, unwind, enjoy, we do every year. I could go on but I think you have got the idea by now. Everything you could wish for. Please note it sometimes does get an excess of liquid sunshine, take a mac.

We travelled from Fort William to the camp site. We were concerned about not being able to book a pitch but Margaret, the owner, allowed us to ring up the night before to confirm that it was still our intention to come. She made sure that one of the pitches being vacated the following day was kept for us. On arrival we were glad she did as the place was packed. All the staff were very friendly and had a good knowledge of the local area.

The location of this site is what it is all about. Right on the edge of a beautiful beach which our children loved. They spent hours playing with the jelly fish and in the rock pools. The water was freezing and so wetsuits are strongly recommended. The camp site was quiet at all the right times. Many people re-visit this site year after year, in one case every year for the last 40.

Lots of walks in the area and things to see and do. At 16. 50pn for a family of 4 in a motorhome with an electric hook up it is also incredibly reasonable. I was a bit nervous about the approach to the site after reviews on here but it really wasn't that bad. We were in a 25ft vehicle and met more traffic down the road than we had all day. There are lots of passing places of reasonable size. I probably wouldn't want to tow a 26ft caravan down the road though but plenty did.

The toilet block really does need some money spent on it now as apparently nothing has been done to it in years and it really shows. It is the only negative I can come up with. Two of the men's showers don't have doors on them and so water goes everywhere. Showers are electric and go from being freezing cold to boiling hot in an instant. Campsite was having problems with its' chemical toilet facilities while we were there. I think major work needs to be done on the sceptic tank and hopefully this will be done over the winter.

Fish and chips are good at the on site chippy. We did have a look at the campsite at Clachtoll for future reference and it is very nice as is the owner. However we think the beach is better at Achmelvich and so in all likelihood would return to here. Not a body boarding beach though which was somewhat disappointing.

Absolutely love this site, beach stunning and hills round about easily walked/climbed. Loads to see in the surrounding area.

Campsite clean and staff very friendly, the on site chip shop was a welcome addition to go with our barbie burgers.

Toilet block clean and tidy and even had a hairdryer for the backpackers.

We arrived on spec but now that we've been I would prefer to know we could book, its a long way to come on the off-chance there's a space with a hook-up available.

Will definitely be back.

Spent 2 weeks here and had a great time, would have stayed for 4 weeks but my work would not give me the extra time off.

The staff are all great and friendly and they will go out of their way to help with anything. Has a great chippy and small shop for your needs.

Has everything that you need for outdoor from boating to fishing and hill walking, you just need the energy to do it all.

Thanks to Margaret and Sarah for running the place and all their efforts, will be back next year for sure.

Totally fabulous!

The young woman who booked us in could not have been more friendly and made my 15 year old son's day by mistaking him for an adult. Even though it was busy we had plenty of choice for pitches and opted for down by the shore.

Showers and toilets extra clean and warm. Wash up for dishes also very clean with the option of indoors or outdoors. Plenty of hot water.

Shop for basics and the marvellous chippy open Thur to Sun serves enormous portions.

My sons loved scrambling about on the rocky little hills and the beach is beautiful beyond words.

Challenging mountain bike path up to Allt na Bradhan beach (with a ruined click mill) and down to Lochinver kept us happy, along with another wee loop up past Glencanisp Lodge. WE stopped for a magnificient pie at Lochinver Larder.

Only downer is that I wont be able to wangle another long weekend off until the site is closed for the season. Can't wait to go back.

Amazing place! This site is all about location. The facilities are adequate, even good. Toilets are cleaned daily and a re generally clean. There is a wee shop and a chip shop (didn't use it, so cant say more). The beach is what you are here for and it wont disappoint.

The site is managed in a rather take it or leave it attitude. Find your own space, try to get a hook up and it makes things a little bit chaotic. Some people fill up large areas with large tents wind breakers, bikes boats, barbecues etc etc. Meaning you might need a good long cable for hookup. There a re a lot of bumpy bits too and near the toilets its a bit whiffy around the septic tank - just don't camp beside it!

Of slight concern for caravanners is the approach road. From Lochinver, the approach road says 'not suitable for caravans'. We were glad to get though without meeting anyone but it's single track with steep parts and many blind corners/ summits. You need nerves of steel.

Staff are OK- the ones we dealt answered our needs efficiently but could work on their friendliness.
