 Beautiful location perched on top of an outstanding stretch of beach.

Very clean spacious shower and toilet facilities that were warm. Indoor washing up area with a washing machine and dryer ( much needed with all the rain).

Ideal for adults wanting to escape the pressures of everyday life. Small quiet isolated site which we liked but might not be everybody’s cup of tea.

Not much for children if travelling with them.

All details via email, very clear and easy to follow so no contact with a human for ‘customer service’ review

 Peaceful site with 4 grass pitches with electric hook up. The toilets and showers are modern and spotless.

The beach is a short walk across the Machair. This beach is one of the best beaches I have ever been on and is one place you should not miss while visiting Harris.

I have spent 4nights here and it will be sad to leave.

 This location was our clear favourite during a week on Lewis & Harris. The schoolhouse sits in the middle of a small peninsula surrounded by some of the most gorgeous beaches Harris has to offer.

The site has only four camper/motorhome grass pitches with EHU. The very clean and modern facilities (two bathrooms with toilets and showers) are within the schoolhouse, along with a small laundry.

There is fresh water on site, but no waste facilities, for that you have to drive to Talla Na Mara about two miles away. Entry to the facilities is by a code that is emailed before you arrive.

All booking is done via the West Harris Trust website and the site is unmanned, so no check-in. Only payment in full is accepted at the time of booking, which for us was three months before our stay. At £32 per night it isn't cheap, but the location makes up for it.

We would have liked to stay for a few more nights, but this is an extremely popular site, so we made do with a mixture of other West Harris Trust pitches. I believe there may be a restaurant in the schoolhouse and certain times of the year, but it wasn't open during our stay.

Seilebost beach with turquoise water and white sand is only perhaps 150m away. It offers stunning views across to Taransay, Luskentire beach across the bay and the mountains beyond.

The walk around the peninsula at low tide was a highlight of our time on Harris, it helped that the sun was shining that day. We also cycled to Luskentire beach car park from this site which is only a few miles away and a great afternoon out.

If we get to Harris again, this site will be the first I try to book, not cheap, but a real gem of a location.

 Fabulous location with sea views and superb beach within 5 minutes walk.

Excellent quality, clean facilities and a restaurant on site where we enjoyed a delicious dinner - the waitress was excellent!

Our stay was for 2 nights and we found this camp site perfect for exploring the locality and an evening walk along the beautiful beach.

 Lovely campsite in an amazing location on a gorgeous white sandy beach.

The shower block was in need of some upgrade, but otherwise the campsite provided everything we needed.

 The shower room was very clean.

The pitch, T01, felt like it was on a building site with rubble from a wall and path being built next to the pitch.

The main toilet was locked after hours when it should have been left open according to the notice on the door. The other toilet (disabled and baby changing) was open and this was very clean.

Could not get hold of anybody on site so we left after the 1 night !

 This is a marvellous campsite with a great walk to the nearby beach and dunes. Quite difficult to find as the sign from the road says Seilebost school rather than campsite.

It has a great laundry room with a very quick efficient washing machine and tumble dryer. However, you have to obtain the discs for these from Talla na Mara 2 miles up the road when the staff are there. Likewise, the chemical toilet can only be emptied at Talla na Mara, not at Seilebost.

Things have greatly improved at this site from when we were there in 2017.

Please remember to only use green toilet chemicals in your toilet before you arrive on the island as this site and probably other sceptic tanks can not cope with formaldehyde based products. It damages their tank.

Great shower room and toilets including disabled facilities and ramp. Code access keypad on doors.
