Reviewer: Harv41 5 reviews from this member

Excellent campsite, provided with nice sheltered spot. Would recommend.

Toilet block very clean and modern inside but exterior could do with decorating.

Issued with key for toilet block which is kept locked to prevent non campers from using it however this became annoying as you always had to remember the key and impossible to gain access if one family member is already inside.

Wifi available for a one off payment of £1 per device but signal from it very variable.

Be very careful driving down driveway to site as very potholed. Could do with improvement.

No shop available.

I booked onto this site for 4 days and ended up spending 12 days there.

It has wonderful scenery, the beach is a 60 second walk away at most and the facilities are very good.

Colin is very helpful and assisted me on two occasions with problems that were nothing to do with the site. Also he provides a very helpful map on arrival that shows routes for walks in the area and to East Carradale where the shop provides basics including milk from Gigha in old fashioned glass bottles that you return to the shop and also homemade chocolate treats and cakes etc. I used the shop throughout my visit for everything apart from some chicken I had to get from Campbeltown on a bus trip there.

Personally if arriving from the south I'd be tempted to use the ferry from Ardrossan and then from Lochranza to get there. Via road it's 100 miles more but in a motorhome or towing I found it a 2 hour or so drag with Wynding roads.

But yes, if you get the weather which I did for 9 of the days it's a great place to be.

Access is via a long, bumpy track, but don't be put off. You will receive a warm, enthusiastic and informative welcome. The pitches are varied, some secluded and some with sea views. The wash blocks look nothing from the outside, but inside they are faultless.

There is a beach and fantastic views across to the Isle of Arran. The local area is beautiful. The restaurant/pub nearby, The Glen (5 mins drive) is also very friendly for a drink but also does fantastic, good quality food.

£21 per night for 2 adults and a tent. A friendly chatty owner. Site wide wifi.

A good base for visiting the Southern half of Kintyre. If you like local food, the Fishmongers in Campbletown does a lovely salmon/chilli scotch egg!

Reviewer: Traceygill 5 reviews from this member

Reached the site later on in the day (brace yourself for a bumpy road into the site). Once there a helpful gentleman showed us where to set up & went into all the in's & out's of the site. We had a lovely view of the sea from our pitch. The wild life on the site is fantastic, a robin watched on at Breakfast & a couple of rabbits walked me back to our pitch after doing the dishes. There is only one word I can use to describe the toilet block, SPOTLESS, but could maybe look at the lighting in the dish washing area had to do the dishes at night in the dark. Would definitely recommend taking the time to visit.

We have been visiting this site for over 20 years, and having camped on many different sites over the years we keep returning to this one.

We love the friendliness of the site manager Colin who is happy to do all he can to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable, and if he canít sort your problem then he is able to recommend someone local who can. The shower block is spotless and kept clean and tidy and hot water is free which in my experience is a big plus, there are dish washing facilities which are more than adequate. There are also laundry facilities with washing machines and driers, and freezers which can be used to store any frozen foods or ice blocks which for us campers is godsend.

The site is set in a lovely area with a beach right on your doorstep which is great if you have a dog which we have.

We have met lovely people both on site and in the local community.

There are two roads to the site, one where it is a single track and you do need to take your time driving along it but the reward is the stunning scenery which is beautiful no matter what the weather with great views of Isle of Arran on route, or the more main road which also has lovely scenery.

All in all we think this a great place to camp and wonít be changing any time soon and would highly recommend it.

The site is run properly by the owner to the highest standards. The pitches are widely spaced and the layout is excellent. The setting is excellent. The wifi works very well and is only a quid per visit. The info sheet has a large scale Ordnance Survey map of the area on the back, which is incredibly useful. Why don't all sites do that? The toilet block is astonishingly large and the facilities are immaculate. What can a say that's bad? All I can think of is that the access road has potholes. If you can live with that, visit this site.

Oh yeah, you have to use some special bog fluid, not the blue stuff, I don't know why, but they sell it for £11 which is OK.
