 Don't be put off by the 20 miles (nearly an hour) of single track roads to get here!

The campsite slopes to the coast and is surprisingly sheltered if you pick your spot. The facilities comprise 2 toilets, two showers and a washing up room complete with a fridge/freezer. The site is clean, well organised, friendly and caters for small campers and tents. Access is tight and the central track is fairly steep. Not an issue for us.

The views from the site across the Sound of Mull are amazing, White tailed eagles and otters seen from the beach!

Must do's:

1. Sit at the campsite beach and enjoy.

2. Day trip to Tobermory by ferry from Kilchoan

3. Point of Ardnamurchan Lighthouse (152 steps and 2 ladders)

4. Sanna Bay and Glendrian deserted village

5. Climb Beinn Hiant and Beinn na Seilg

The Kilchoan Hotel was great for food and The Ferry Stores was a life saver. We also visited the Distillery at Glenbeg. You may want to stock up at the Acharacle shop, Salen shop or Mingarry Park for wild venison before arrival as it will be nearly 2 hour round trip from Kilchoan!

This site is remote, the scenery and wildlife are stunning and if you get the weather you'll be smiling all the way home!

 Fabulous little site.

Friendly and helpful staff.

Great views and walks from the site.

We walked down to the ferry and had a day in Tobermory too.

I was a little nervous on the drive down as it's 40 mile of single track road but well worth it.

Reviewer: Annaga 1 review from this member

 One of my most favourite campsites ever. It's peaceful with the most amazing views whatever the weather.

The surrounding area is stunning and there are lots of places to explore. Local shop in Kilchoan is great.

Friendly people who run the site and I would recommend it wholeheartedly.

 Lovely site next to shoreline with access to sea.

Hook up and stand pipes available. Very friendly staff.

Good base for biking, hiking and water sports.

 We have just had an extremely enjoyable 4 day stay at this site. The site is on a slope with terraced areas, the pitches along the shore front have an excellent view.

Marked the facilities down at 9 because of COVID restrictions, toilets and shower out of action so self contained units only.

The site team were very friendly and helpful, in fact I would extend that to the local community everyone seemed happy to have us there, local store is only a 10 min walk away and owner actually went home to get her own sewing basket and let me pick a needle and thread to repair our damaged awning.

Overall this was a lovely site in a lovely community, we will definitely be going back and will try to get the shore front pitches.

 Great place to escape from the rat race. Bit of a hike but if you don't mind the drive, which has some stunning scenery, well worth it.

Isle of Mull across the bay and not far from a fabulous beach at Sanna Sands. Went with a group of like mined dog owners and had an absolutely great time.

You can pitch virtually on the beach for amazing views.

Toilets and facilities were lovely and clean and hot showers. We actually stayed in the boat house, basic due to lack of space in the car for all the camping gear!

 This camp site is much better than the one down the road from it. A beautiful location and very welcoming. Only one bad thing.

The toilets and shower blocks. Very basic. Its what I think would be in a concentration camp.

For 24 a night they need a new shower block

Reviewer: Purplepiglet 8 reviews from this member

 This is a wonderful little site just outside of Kilchoan village, with all the facilities you need along with stonking views and friendly hosts. The site offers hardstanding pitches for motorohomes and grass pitcher for tents, with hookup options on both.

There's two loos and two showers which to be honest need a bit of TLC and smartening up, but I personally didn't mind them. Graham was very welcoming and happy to give advise on local activities and makes information available in the little wet-weather communal area where you can sit and chat with your fellow campers on a rainy night.

The location is wonderful and you can be on the stony beach in 1 minute from where you will see otters and much birdlife, and if you're really luck you might spot dolphins and seals out in the loch. Really enjoyed this campsite.

 A friend recommended this site to me and we have not been disappointed. Wonderful location and Gordon most helpful. Site on a slight hill, with pitch areas (did not need to use chocks but always useful to have) with EHU right down to the coast line.

Facilities (2 showers & 2 loos) are very clean and more than satisfactory. If you are a person who wants the regimentation of a Caravan club site or the like at all times then maybe this region is not for you and if that is the case then you would be missing out on something special.

 Arrived here, with my son, after a long and tiring drive on single track roads. Staff very welcoming, helping me find a level pitch suitable for my campervan. Struggled a bit to get it placed without encroaching on nearby tents but got there, in the end! No hook-up for us but we didn't want it - had a good view although the trees directly behind us, cut that part of the vista off. Ideally situated for a visit to the lighthouse. We cycled there, strenuous in places but far better doing the 14. 2 ml round trip than having to pitch the 'van again! Facilities are quirky, small but we found them to be clean, although some folks weren't so fussy in the single-sink dishwashing area as I would have liked. My son used the showers before me and said he got loads of hot water. Come my turn, after the long day out on the bikes. I got not a drop of hot water. Stone flippin' cold! Seems I may have left it late in the evening to expect anything else but I had a real strop on as had to try and freshen up in cold water, via a tiny hand-basin or opt to go back to the 'van and wait for the gas to heat up the water - too tired for that, needed my bed. I did bump into the owner, as he did a late-evening clean up, and his reply was 'Been a lot of showers then'. Yeh, worked that one out for myself! Anyway, besides that little glitch, we really did enjoy our stay - one word of warning though, the access in is very steep and, when driving a long vehicle, you just wait for the crunch as it 'belly's-out' - mine didn't but I suspect some low-slung models may. On a final note: recycling centres are like hens teeth in that part of Scotland. There are a couple of bins, on site but, if like us, you're carrying a load of mixed recycling, from your journey, oddly enough there is a big selection of bins, on the road to the lighthouse. We took our load there and discovered that is actually where the site owner takes the contents of his bins as he turned up, at the same time.
