 We stayed here with our grandson last year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The site is in a lovely location with views across the Loch. The wardens Colin & Marion were extremely friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble for them and the facilities were always clean and tidy. A shop which stocked all provisions is at the bottom of the drive with a 1st class butcher 5 minutes walk from the site. We have a large tent and this was catered for with no problem. We loved the site so much we have booked for another 2 weeks this year. Cannot wait to see Colin & Marion again - Callum says he is bringing his football again Marion! see you soon both. Xx

 I visited this site on the way to Poolewe which is just around the corner and fell in love with the place.

The site it is reasonable well cared for and the shower blocks is adequate and clean. The pitches are not huge and are not all level. The wardens are friendly and helpful and they simply love dogs. I managed to get a pitch by the wall overlooking the sea and the views were great. There is plenty shops and a pub and Gairloch itself it a lovely little jewel on the Scottish coast. We like it here so much that we stayed extra days.

For spectacular scenery in a very nice town this is the place to visit and it is quite reasonably priced.

 What a fantastic site this is. The wardens Colin and Marion were excellent hosts and would do anything for you to make your stay one of the best.

The shower block was always clean and tidy with loads of hot water. The pub at the entrance was very nice and friendly serving really good food.

Would have no hesitation in recommending this site to anyone who was visiting this wonderful part of scotland.

The walk to Gairloch harbour is lovely and the beaches some of the best in scotland. The boat trips are a tad expensive especially if you don't see what you want, although the boat trip itself was very good with a knowledgeable skipper.

 We have just spent 7 nights at this excellent campsite. The toilet and shower blocks are kept beautifully with plenty of hot water, and warmth. The showers are properly set up with room to keep your dry clothes dry - which is not what you always get. The laundry room and washing up areas are both well equipped and the small freezer in the laundry area is available for ice blocks.

The scenary in this part of Scotland is breathtaking and there is plenty of walking both along the coast where you can see numerous sea birds and marine mammals, and inland. The village has all the amenities you might want within easy walking - restaurants, small supermarket, good quality butcher etc. A great place to stay.

However - as we were warned by Colin when we rang before going - do be prepared for wind. Our tent was fine but a few were not even though the wind during our stay wasn't strong for this part of the country.

 What a site, what a couple who run it, cant do enough for you, and they actually live on the site and use all facilities. Two toilet/shower blocks, cleanliness second to none. Covered dish washing up area. Laundry with washers/dryers and even an ironing board. Washing line too! Minutes walk from a village centre where there is everything. Fish & chip shop, at the rear of 'na mara' restaurant, restaurant which is open Sundays. Excellent butchers up the road with a vast array of meats, fish and vegetables. 'Hillbillies' which has a bookshop and coffee shop, try the 'Yeti'. Surf shop towards beach front. Local fish monger attends on Thursdays. 40 minute walk from the most beautiful beach, close to the golf course. The best pitches, overlooking the bay are a couple of pounds dearer, but worth the spend. (No6 is the best, but don't tell anyone)

Reviewer: Willave 7 reviews from this member

 Spent a week in this wonderful location. The site is well managed and all the facilities are spotlessly clean.

There are a couple of places in the village, which is only minutes walk away, where you can purchase fresh food and milk. There are also a couple of pubs / restaurants in the village and in particular the 'Myrle Bank' hotel which does lovely meals at very reasonable prices, with pleasant and attentive staff (to be sure of a meal it is best to book, as it is very popular)

The area has the most superb scenery and if you are as lucky with the weather as we were you will enjoy it immensely.

 Just returned from 4 very enjoyable nights at Gairloch. Warm welcome from pleasant and friendly wardens Colin & Marion who kept all the facilities immaculate.

Beautiful views from the site over Loch Gairloch towards Skye and Torridon mountains.

An adequate selection of local shops and hotels. Inverewe Gardens is only about 6 miles away.Worth a visit.

Don't forget to tune into 'Two Lochs radio' which is the UK's smallest local community run station.

Hope to return again soon!

 Nice level site with a friendly welcome. Local hotel near entrance and shops including butcher, newsagents, fish and chip shop, bookshop/cafe etc.

Not too far to walk into Gairloch village where there is a supermarket,fuel, hotels, TIC etc

Clean facilities, good washing up area and nice views out to sea.

Well worth a drive out to Melvaig Inn along the single track road as the food and beer were lovely with a friendly welcome.

Reviewer: Keithydee 21 reviews from this member

 Vey clean, level and tidy site, the current manager is in the process of refurbishing it, the site is central for the town itself which is very handy. The wardens are probably the most helpful site managers we have ever met.

The site doesn't have any facilities for children however with everything so close to hand this isn't a problem. There is a pub/ restaurant just outside the entrance and shops within 50 yards which provide most of the day to day things you will need, watch out for the basking sharks, seals and otters in the area too.

 This is one of the favourite sites in the UK and I have stayed here every year for the last 5. The location is great, situated right in the centre of a beautiful village and a 2 minute walk from shops, pubs, book shops and everything you could want. Wardens are friendly, facilities are always clean, campsite is flat and the views are great! What more could you ask for
