 The site is really large and spacious with a mixture of touring, statics, tents and cottages.

Really nice facilities although a couple of times the shower water was cold.

Easy access to a nice sandy beach with great views of Torridon mountains, Skye and out to Harris.

Non EHU pitches are essentially find a free spot. Annoyingly, this means some people park a little close for my liking.

Site rules state that dogs should be on a lead at all times. This was not adhered to by other dog owners and meant our dog was getting agitated by dogs on the loose.

Thereís an on site bar and cafe which we didnít use but looked good.

And the on site shop seemed to sell more provisions than the local stores in Gairloch, which is very convenient if you donít want to head into the village.

 Wow, what a site.

You can pitch virtually anywhere you like, so you feel nice and remote but still have electric hookup.

The views are fantastic. The shop has everything that you could ever need, especially a very impressive large selection of herbal teas.

The on site restaurant also does takeaway.

We had some lovely chats with the warden who was really interesting & informative about the site & area.

We'll definitely be back! 5 star !

Reviewer: Damaca 85 reviews from this member

 We were disappointed by this well-known and very widely advertised site, so much so that we cut short our stay despite having paid for more nights.

It is huge, and we didn't like the 'find your own pitch but be prepared to lose it if you leave the site' system.

The site seems to be a quite chaotic mixture of grassy areas, hardstandings, with or without electricity, all mixed higgledy-piggledy with one another.

If you are a new arrival, possibly tired after your journey, the last thing you want is to drive around grassy dunes looking for a suitable location.

The shower/ toilet/ dishwashing block near our pitch looked awfully tired and ugly outside, but was surprisingly nice and upgraded, and spacious, inside, with under-floor heating.

There are some nice walks to be done directly from the site, but instead of making leaflets or a booklet available the rather grumpy receptionist directed me to take photos of the walks which were pinned to their wall, not what I wanted in order to decide where to walk. (I should say here that the other receptionist we encountered was friendly and helpful though).

The views from the site are brilliant, with mountainous Harris and flat Lewis, as well as beautiful Skye, the highlights.

My impression here was that the site is a major stopping point for NC 500-ers, who mostly only stay for one night and seem to be undemanding.

The site must make enough money from them not to have to bother to make themselves more attractive to people wanting to stay for a bit longer.

 The best campsite we stayed at during our week travelling the North coast 500!

The shower block was immaculate, beautiful location and everything we needed on our doorstep.

Would recommend to anyone.

 Great site, though we did find it a bit busy, possible a sign of the times though.

Beautiful beach and a amazing views.

The facilities were kept clean, and the staff were all very friendly.

 10/10 for location, facilities & on this occasion weather!

Itís clean, well looked after, has a good shop, laundry, good hot showers, even a bath!

If you are in a tent & the weather is poor, they even have a kitchen/lounge for your comfort.

And the final test of a good campsite, will we return definitely

 Lovely site, , clean facilities, brilliant views and location, but the MIDGIES CHASED US AWAY, now we're are Scottish, and used to midgie, but cut our trip short and went over to the east coast,

The barn cafe is great !

We had a lovely meal the night before we left and it was lush,

Defo worth a visit, perfect for for stop over in the nc500

 Lovely location,

Very nice facilities except the showers! They were clean and functional but the water only runs for 6 seconds before stopping, making washing long hair very difficult!

Everything else is first class.

Reviewer: Stanleyperil 4 reviews from this member

 We had heard and read good reviews of this site. Everyone - you were correct. The site is fantastic! We were in the top field near the toilet facilities. The unit was luxurious.

There are hardstanding pitches stepped in layers or you can choose a remote pitch in the sand dunes. Some with EHU, some without.

A short climb up the sand dunes and down to a fabulous beach with views of the mainland and Skye looking out over the sea loch. There is a longer walk around the dunes and accross a small river.

The access did not appear to be wheelchair friendly ?

The reception area also houses a shop and stock almost everything from groceries to camping accessories. There is a bar/restaurant and Pizza takeaway.

There is also an excellent dog walk area that is fenced off so your furry fiends can run free.
