Reviewer: Geddes 8 reviews from this member

Was a bit apprehensive about choosing The Shore site at Achmelvich as our first port of call this year on our touring holiday as it is so far away, but after Hubby negotiated all the scary twists, turns and passing places on the way in, we were rewarded with the most wonderful vista. I shall think of Achmelvich on the long winter evenings to come. The most beautiful white beach I think I have ever seen in Scotland, and spotless.

The site itself is fine, typically Highland, kind of easy going really. We booked in, (no pre-booking here) and were told to pitch anywhere we wanted. The owners were around but tended to let everyone just get on with it. Small shop on site if you needed anything. No set out pitches. Tents, caravans and motor homes all kind of mixed together. No problem when we were there.

The toilet facilities were adequate, but only just. Only 2 showers in the ladies, with 2 more showers and 2 toilets roped off and 'Out of Commission' even the doors had been taken off! Thought this a bit strange. Hubby said Gents was the same. Washing up/veg prep/waste water facilities were similar, a bit run down but usable. The whole toilet block was clean enough but quite dated and could do with upgrading.

That said, we had a lovely time there, were lucky with the weather and the surrounding scenery was just amazing. Lochinver had some shops if we needed anything. The people we met on site all seemed to have been returning there for years and they all knew each other and were very friendly. A long journey but well worth it when you get there. Would certainly go again.

If you like being away from it all then this is a 10 out of 10.

Friendliest reception of our two weeks holiday and even escorted to our pitch. Everyone mixes in here and hook ups are scattered around so that there is a good mix. No Caravan Ghetto's, or tent stockades here. A really lovely relaxed and friendly site where the thing that breaks the silence is friendly chat and laughter.

The facilities are a class above. Pictures in the Gents and flowers in a vase by the sinks. If it looks like someones home folk seem to treat it as such. Cleaning up is what you'll want to do rather than expect it to be done for you?

Fabulous beach and even a couple of secluded ones. People were fishing, kayaking and snorkelling when we were there .With wet suits .It was warm but this is the North of Scotland!

This was a one nighter but we liked it so much we stayed an extra night and missed out on Scourie. IMO we made a good choice as Scourie is above a beach rather than by one. This enabled us to press on to Durness. See review

This site is in a great location and beautiful part of the world. We arrived just in time to grab fish and chips - what a bonus. The site was quiet when we were there. The facilities were good and clean and the whole site seemed well looked after.

The shore is great for a wander and some wildlife spotting.

We did some walking in the near vicinity and experienced some wonderful scenery - Old Man of Stoer from the lighthouse is great and Kirkcaig falls is a wonderful walk. The cafe/bookshop at the beginning of the Kirkcaig falls walk is well worth a visit.

Local shops are few and far between so stock up well before hand, we had a long trip back in to Ullapool for baby milk on our visit.

A great campsite on the fantastic west coast of Scotland.

The site is in a great position, has all that you need, including a chip shop with good staff and the site management team could not be more helpful. Great place with great beaches, great views, great people, great for the kids as well as the adults who all had a great time with each other in a great place, what else can I say but a great place altogether. Highlight of the year was the fishing competition which was good fun for all who took part and watched.

What an amazing place. I'd seen photos but even once there I couldn't believe how stunning the beaches were. Pure white sand and clear brilliant blue seas it was like abroad (except the wind).

The site is medium sized. The ground is perfect for tents. The showers/ dish was area was very clean.

There were sheep everywhere when we were there, and we were worried they would keep us awake as they were very vocal but they settled down.

Oh but the beach. We had to really struggle to leave, what a sight.

The shops in Lochinver have all the things we needed but be warned - DO NOT run out of petrol/diesel here! The petrol station was 15p per litre more than most other places we visited!

Reviewer: S_the_Snail 8 reviews from this member

I would agree with what's been said , great location , stunning beach(es) , peacefull , isolated, loveley walks up the coast.
I would only add , the access road is extremely narrow in places , there are sheep on site I woke to find two of them asleep under my van ! And they like to visit the show blocks when it's raining. This is a camp site so don't expect any motorhome facilities , though it does have hookup . The grass was already getting a bit soft when I was there , otherwise all very splendid , if you have a kayak, small dinghy etc you'll have a ball.
