 This was our 2nd visit to this site, the scenery was as wonderful as usual, however we did feel that standards had slipped a little despite the addition of new showers.

The gents did not have any soap for hand washing for the six days of our visit, the ladies ran out on day two.

Drinking water was not labelled and the chemical waste toilet disposal would not flush and the hose outside this area did not work.

However we did enjoy our stay and would probably return

 Wow just back from seal shore on the 20th of June had an amazing time weather was fab. Site was great as usual. Only very minor complaint was the hairdryer is not working in the shower area and the new showers were running a bit cold but didn't mind so much as the weather was very very hot, but the old showers were great anyway. Brilliant site excellent location. Please please please consider putting in a play area for kiddies and I would spend most of the summer there every year.

 Just to add what others have written, the Kildonan Stores and Post Office have now sadly closed. However, the Kildonan Hotel next to the campsite has opened a shop, which sells newspapers, milk, bread, wine and many other lines. This saves having to drive to Whiting Bay.

The campsite does not publicise the hotel shop, so for prospective visitors to Sealshore, the Kildonan Hotel is your best bet for essentials.

 Lovely small site right on the shore at Kildonnan next to the Kildonnan Hotel. Site was quiet when we were there with fantastic weather. Basic clean facilities but this is more than compensated for by the fantastic location and stunning views. The Owner is extremely helpful and polite and will even charge your mobile for a donation to charity if you have no hook-up.

Kildonnan Hotel is right next door but there was no noise at all to speak of. A short walk along the shore will allow you to see seals snoozing in the sun at close quarters. We stopped seal counting when we got to 100.

There is a well stocked posted office within walking distance for all necessary supplies. No play park or anything but this is not necessary as you are next to the beach. There is an undercover area where campers can eat and barbecue. W

e would definitely go back but it is expensive to take your caravan on the ferry so maybe a tent next time.

 We loved this little site, brilliant location right on the shore with lovely views. Its not a beach, as such, but great for walks.

Next to the site is a cracking hotel which has a public bar and does really nice bar meals.

The site itself is sloping although 'almostly' level hard standings (flags for the wheels really) were being installed whilst we were there. It has a small shop in the office, a tv room, he'll do washing for you!, and the rest of the facilities are pretty good too. You may want to book as the site is small and limited electric.

Chemical waste is a very primate affair here, as the island can only handle green loo fluid.

The roads on Arran are very tight which is why you don't see many caravans - certainly nothing bigger than small.

We got around on the bus although we didn't come across anywhere outstanding to visit, but generally the place is lovely and the site ideal for a quiet couple of days.

 Fantastic spot to stay, lovely views but beware of strong winds that blow off the sea. Owner helpful, toilets clean and showers very hot!

No playground but lots to see and do along the shore. Take a walk past the post office through the gate and follow the path, its amazing, we saw in excess of 60 seals and was very lucky to be able to get within about 20 meters from a baby one.

The walk to the Eas mor library is ok, waterfall is beautiful but the library was very disappointing. Distillery was also very good but if you want to buy anything then check in the local supermarkets first as we bought the same size bottle of 'Arran Gold' cheaper!The ferry fry chip shop in Brodick do a fantastic fish supper. We was given an Arran information broucher on the ferry, great we thought, loads of discount vouchers, but all out of date!

Arran is a very nice place but we has a family didn't enjoy it as much as the Isle Of Mull.

 We were lucky enough to be on one of the front hook up pitches in our motorhome, with brilliant uninterrupted views of Scotland, Ireland (and the seals) whether we were sitting inside or out.

Very friendly owner, and some work to improve the facilities was nearly finished when we were there, although I think I would still love this place even if it had no facilities.

Had 2 nice bar meals in the pub next door which was family friendly. It ran out of Arran beers the first night but luckily had been stocked up the following day.

No play area but this was our kids favourite site of the holiday - the beach is a mixture of sand, rocky outcrops, rock pools, seaweed etc that just seemed to fascinate them and we were in danger of running out of clean dry clothes for them if we'd stayed any longer !

There is a shop about 15 minutes walk along the beach to save a drive if you are short on supplies

 I reviewed this site last year and have returned twice since then. In this short space of time there have been some great additions. There's 4 new showers going in and the pressure of the existing ones are more like power showers.

The entrance to the toilet block's been extended thus turning the door away from the prevailing winds - brilliant idea.

All the facilities were clean and tidy with new tiling and a reorganisation of the shop making everything look bigger.

The position of the site came into its own this holiday as the sea was spectacular (glad we weren't on it that day!)

Maurice has worked really hard and provides so much more than we have seen at other sites. Laundry, well stocked shop, undercover cooking, great showers, clean and tidy facilities, day room, sky tv and most of all, a warm welcome and boatloads of friendly advice on the island.

New addition to the shop before we left was the Isle Of Arran version of Monopoly - can't wait to play that one.

We'll be back - again and again!

 This is a super campsite with great views! We stayed here on a touring trip round Scotland on a motorbike. We had booked but fellow bikers we met on the ferry arrived at the campsite late that night and had no problem fitting in! The site itself is out in the sticks so if you need supplies call in at Lamlash or Whiting Bay on the way from the ferry.

The site has everything you might need clean toilets and free showers (though the water pressure is low, especially the ladies second one in!), washing up areas, under cover BBQ area if needed, day room with TV (not used but good for kids on rainy days I suppose!), stands and wind shelters for cooking and a shop! The owner is really friendly and will tell you anything you want to know. For a donation to his charity jar he will charge camera/phone batteries too! The front field is right by the sea with clear views out to Pladda Island (the owner sometimes does boat trips out there but hasnt been able to this year!) and Ailsa Craig. Be warned though the trade off for the sea view is the sea wind! Make sure you bring storm lashing or extra guy ropes in case the wind picks up! The back field was much more sheltered when we wandered round.

We paid 13 per night for two adults, a 2man tent and the bike which we were able to park right next to the tent although cars need to use the car park. It is possible to see the whole island in one day and there are some beautiful views to be seen. We were told there was a golden eagles nest in Lochranza but didnt manage to see it! If you go to Lamlash you can get the ferry out to Holy Isle (price, not sure!) or go mackerel fishing (18 each). The fishing needs to be booked a day or two in advance but it is worth asking if there are spaces as we managed one the same day. Fresh BBQd mackerel for tea with the views from Seal Shore incredible! Will definitely return if we visit Arran again!

 I loved Seal Shore and we cant wait to go back. Fantastic location with brilliant views and well maintained. The facilities were great for campers e.g nice hot water in showers and toilet block and clean fridge freezers to use.

Only possible criticism would be could do with more parking if you cant park next to your tent and an extra shower or 2 as it can be difficult during busy times and a wee play area for kids would be fab.
