Reviewer: Lekster 2 reviews from this member

 A beautiful site run like a military operation. The constant supervision by the owners is overbearing and intrusive. Pitch your tent exactly where they tell you, ensure you know the exact size before you book, extra charges everywhere, no ball games, toilets that are locked constantly and monitored to the point that you feel uncomfortable. The prices they charge are extortionate compares to other sites in the area and they are certainly not welcoming. We have camped all over England & Wales and in 12 other countries, this was our first visit to Arisaig & it put us off Scotland completely. The only saving grace was we had friends staying at other sites up the road. The area itself is obviously popular as all the sites were busy and it is indeed a beautiful part of the world but we would not return due to the totally officious nature of the Sunnyside owners.

 2nd visit to Sunnyside and loved it even more this time round!

Facilities second to none and very well thought out with maps, covered areas, microwave, recycling, local tourist and shop with tourist items and local produce.

The owners were friendly and helpful as always and work so hard to ensure facilities immaculate.

Beaches fantastic, sunsets spectacular and local eateries very good particularly Rhu Cafe.

Rock area now cordoned off as deemed unsafe for children to play on and no other play areas available though personally we find this an attraction rather than a negative and maintains the peaceful ambience of the place.

Some of the pitches on a slope and you require rock pegs for awnings though Iain has worked really hard over Winter improving pitches.

An absolute haven and can't wait to get back.

 We have just returned from a fantastic week's holiday at this lovely site.

The site itself is immaculate with large hard standing pitches, plenty of room for car, caravan and full awning leaving a nice patch of grass at the front for our dog. The views from the caravan were amazing and we enjoyed beautiful sunsets every night. Showers and toilets were always spotless and warm. There is also a separate family room and disabled facility.

There are long stretches of white sandy beaches with aqua clear water. Lots of outdoor activities for all ages. Also very peaceful and quiet if that is what you were looking for.

The owners, Julie and Iain were very welcoming, showing us around the facilities, and providing lots of useful information to make the most of our stay.

We felt that the cost was reasonable and reflected the high standard of the site. Electricity is paid for via a card at the hook up point. We used 5 for 7 days.

We enjoyed a lovely meal at the hotel just a short walk away, again a very warm welcome, whether you were there for just a drink or for dinner. This has to be one of the most beautiful areas that we have ever visited and we will be back very soon.

 Excellent site, excellent facilities, excellent outlook. I do not think I have ever experienced such a comprehensive briefing from the Site owner. Everything was explained and a thorough tour of the facility was given in the most friendly manner you could wish for. The entire site is a credit to the owners who have carried out most of the work themselves. The view across to Eigg is spectacular.

Although we only stayed for one night at Easter on our way to Skye we will definitely be back.

I particularly like the metered electric supply, much fairer.

Heartily recommended.

Reviewer: Bunny72 12 reviews from this member

 Most helpful and welcoming reception at this wonderful site. Very new toilet block. Great views over beach to the islands. The beach is a walk of about 2 minutes and, is great for dogs. It will also be great for children as it has beautiful White sand and many rock pools.

The pitches are slightly sloping and the owner lent us blocks when he saw we did not have these. The electricity is extra and we paid 2. For two nights and did not use it all. A small price to pay for such a good site. We will be back!

 Second site on our 2 week tour, this was a site we wanted to visit 2 years ago whilst in the area but it had not been opened in time (still under construction), it was worth the wait!

Very clean and modern facilities block which caters especially well for campers with free use of fridge/freezer and microwave and covered area to sit and eat/socialise.

Great views to the west for sunsets from spacious hardstanding pitches.

We only used the site as a stop-off this time before boarding the ferry to Skye but will defo return for a longer stay.

Reviewer: Banni 2 reviews from this member

 This is a great site with excellent facilities.

The pitches are hard standing and whilst not on the beach the views of Eigg and Rhum are great.

The toilet block is very clean and there is plenty of hot water.

There is a motorhome service point at the entrance to the site.

We didn't use the shop on site but it has the basics plus local produce.

If you have a bike the road to Arisaig or Traigh is not busy, it used to be the main road to Mallaig but a new road has been built thus the road outside the campsite is quiet.

Reviewer: Itsatent 1 review from this member

 Yet another glowing review. Facilities are fantistic, showers and toilets the cleanest ever. The first time I have not taken own toilet roll, just in case! The owners Julie and Ian, worked really hard all the time to provide a really nice environment for everyone.

Views from the site are spectacular, what a way to start and end the day, and spend the day if you want to.

When you arrive you are heartely greated and shown where to put your tent. Strict adherence to fire regs were apreciated, but 6+ paces canvas to canvas is not for everyone. To me it didn't feel cramped but for some it might.

We wanted good facilities, views, and a friendly site and that's what we got, hairdriers which work included in price need I say more?

It was quite windy one night there, the owners put up upto date weather and shipping forecasts every day. Thats the kind of attenation to detail which makes the experience so good.

The only potential downsides for some people might be, distance from resturant, a good county mile. We were close to the toilet and shower block and also a hook up point, the light from this didn't bother us, but it might bother some people.

As well as the pay as you go wifi I had no problem using Orange prepaid data which was fast and helps if you are trying to book ferries etc.

We loved it and would happily return year on year.

Thanks so much for such a good time.

 Superb site with access to glorious beach and views over to Eigg and Rum.

Friendly is used so often in reviews but this adjective truly reflects everything about this site. West Highland hospitality at its very best.

There has obviously been a lot of investment recently on the facilities which are kept immaculatly.

On arrival you are greeted as a long lost friend and given a most comprehensive introduction to the site, its facilities and the local area.

Owners are trying to be as environmentally aware as possible.

The metered electricity means you don't need to use the hook up but if you do it fairly highlights what you do use, we were less than 1. 00 an night, but hopefully it will make all those with heaters in their awnings and more appliances than Comet think twice.

No need for a children's play area as the beach is on the doorstep - and what a beach! White sands, gently sloping blue seas, little rockpools with interesting swimming things.

When we were there it was the last of the English school holidays and although th site was almost full with tents caravans and motorhomes we never felt crowded and it was very quiet and relaxing. Spar shop in Arisaig would put many a larger town supermarket to shame.

Fascinating community museum at the station in Mallaig.

Lovely site, beautiful area, come here and just chill!

 My husband, our wee dog Jerry and I are just back from a lovely holiday at Sunnyside Croft. We had a lovely time. The campsite is so well cared for and the facilities were wonderful. The couple who run it were forever cleaning and keeping the grounds tidy.

I would highly recommend this site and hope to go back next year, even if only for a long weekend. There are two lovely villages nearby, Arisaig and Mallaig, and Fort William is only an hours drive away.
