Situated in the stunning Applecross village with great, friendly pub with a big menu and scrumptious seafood. Also a cafe, gift shop and various craft shops. Site has 10 hardstandings which are essential if you have anything bigger than a VW size van as the ground gets really boggy. Mostly level, 8, 9 & 10 benefit from ramps. Reception closed 1 - 3pm but has a small shop. Facilities, including laundry, are basic and tired but clean. Camping pods also available. There are plans to develop the site further with more hardstandings and new facilities (the existing facilities will revert back to the estate). There were stags roaming around the farm buildings, largely oblivious of the people taking photos. The drive to/from over Bealach na Ba is 'interesting' - in a pretty poor state, 'usually impassable in winter' and I would guess pretty busy in the height of summer. We opted for an early morning departure to miss traffic. At 29. 50 for 2 adults I thought a little expensive but the only option in Applecross.

Great camp site. I will be going back some time I hope.

Walking distance of very good pub and restaurant.

The sea is just as close.

Credit card petrol station in village.

Shop 2 miles along the coast

Facilities good and the staff friendly.

Spent a night here in early July and was a bit nervous about coming due to quite a few negative reviews. And I was lucky due the fantastic weather we'd all been having at the time - so no mud.

The lady at reception was polite and businesslike rather than friendly but that was fine. The facilities are a little basic as previous reviews will testify but they were adequate - this is camping remember. I think we've all been spoilt by CC club standards and we've forgotten what camping used to be like. The facts are that I got to use the loo and the showers when I needed to - there are actually a couple of shower suites in the laundry room which a sink and toilet too.

It's a 5 minute walk down to the waterfront where you have the pub and a bistro - I agree with the reviews below - the seafood in the pub was fantastic.

The other reason you have to come here is that it is along some of the best driving coastline you will ever see.

So, if you don't mind wiping your feet on the grass after you leave the shower then you have to give this place a try

A lovely site very quiet and easy walking access to the village of Applecross. The pub is excellent and serves some of the best seafood I have eaten in a pub restaurant. The views from the pub over the loch are stunning and well worth a visit. The shop is in the next village, about a twenty minute walk and don't expect morning papers to be there in the morning. The facilities in the campsite are small but more than useable. I will definitely be going back.

The site benefits from a lovely location and good local services but has little to offer itself. The lady at reception was delightful and friendly, however everything else was a bit of a let down. The fees are overpriced (presumably due to lack of competition) and the facilities are inadequate for a campsite of this size. The gents had two showers, two toilet cubicles and two urinals and the ladies had four toilets and two showers. All were mouldy and had tiles missing.

We have visited Applecross before but never with a caravan or at this campsite. Some of the reviews are quite critical so I was a bit wary but, as others have said, it is the only game in town so we thought we'd risk it.

I actually liked the campsite. The location is fabulous and we found the staff helpful and friendly. When we arrived, we were expected and our hard standing had a reserved sign with our name on it. Some of the hard standings nearer reception (possibly older ones?) were of the block and grass type but ours appeared to be a sort of compacted rock type. We didn't try the awning so I'm not sure what pegging would have been like (definitely rock pegs required though).

The facilities on the site are a bit basic but they do work. The water taps were plentiful (one for every 2 hard standings) and recycling facilities were very good (they seemed to take everything!). The CDP was basic but functional. Grey water also went in here. I believe that there isn't any facility for motorhomes to drive over a grid to deposit water. The shower block for ladies was old with 2 showers. It was busy in the mornings. The showers themselves are showing their age. My opinion is that they were kept as clean as possible given that they are old (missing tiles, dodgy sealant etc) which makes them harder to clean plus troops of campers walking mud and grass in all day doesn't help. However, the water was roasting hot and unlimited (although press button). The toilets were similarly basic but had a good strong flush so they were always left clean by other visitors.

I would urge visitors to stay longer than just one night. The Applecross Estate is a charitable body which promotes the region and has set up some fascinating, enjoyable walks. There is a series of 4 booklets (1 each) which provide lots of interesting information and ideas for walks, things to see etc.
