 Excellent facilities and location, staff brilliant and most helpful.

Will certainly use this site again, best of our trip round NC500.

In the current situation with Covid-19 precautions, this site was by far the most professional in their management.

 Used the sands caravan park as a stop off on our NC500 trip. This was a well set up site with several levels and areas to pitch.

The best equipped shop wed seen in a long time even proper shops never mind camp ones! Good facilities very clean and plenty of too.

Nice looking eat house on site although didnt eat there. Lovely beach and dunes to shelter some areas from the wee drafts that are occasionally present in the north 🥴 local area has a good few quirky and practical shops too.

In my opinion the best wed stayed at for all aspects of camping on our 2 week trip Id highly recommend a visit and more than a night if you can make it 👍

 Stayed here for two nights, what a location! Fantastic site, facilities are first class, a well stocked shop with everything you need from storm tie down kits to a needle and thread and everything else in between.

Restaurant on site is good as well as the shepherds hut which sells chippy food and pizzas.

The views are amazing on a clear day but it can feel a bit exposed when its windy.

Would certainly recommend this site for anyone visiting the West Coast of Scotland

 Aprox 2 miles out of the village, Stopped with small Tent fot 2 nights. Reception staff friendly and efficient. Plenty of pitches to choose from on my visit. If you choose you can camp next to the dunes, beach access a few minutes walk away.

Toilet block ok. Clean and plenty of showers*( no charge). Next door washing up area/kitchen complete with fridges and freezers, plenty of plugs for charging gadgets. This is a family site accompanying children on bikes, note be aware a lot running around unsupervised, tripping over guy lines and the obligatory football match.

The village is a distance away, with limited convenience stores, also a Fish and chip shop. The Barn cafe on site is popular which serves meals throughout the day. Note best to book for evening meal as it gets very busy. Reasonably happy with my stay,

 Amazing beachside location with plenty of space available to pitch up.

Facilities were the best I've seen on a campsite and the only negative I could think of is that the toilets were not cleaned regularly enough and with no toilet brushes available it wasn't pleasant in the toilets at times.

 Not the type of site we would generally stay on - yet we could really see the attraction.

The simple request that you pitch where you like but keep 7 metres away from your nearest neighbour works well. On the higher grass area its mainly caravans, down in the dunes tents and campervans - with motorhomes split between the two.

Surprised how many electric hook ups in the dunes area, made it easy to find secluded areas with electric and there was plenty of water taps nearby.

Toilet block from the outside looked grim - inside was the opposite, recently re-furbed, warm and plenty of hot water.

We used the cafe for a takeaway, good basic well cooked food.

As previous reviews mention the shop is super well stocked, not sure what you can't buy there - everything from wet suits to fresh olives to guy ropes to frozen pizza.

No camp-fires allowed on any pitches, although you can make them on the beach as long as you clear up after you.

With over 250 pitches we thought this would be a loud, nosiy site - not at all, in fact it was very peaceful. Would estimate it was less than 50% full, so plenty of choice where to pitch.

 Just stayed here for another two glorious weeks(visited 3years ago). The site once again was amazing non regimented pitching so can find you own bit of heaven so long as you keep the minimum distance from neighbours, facilities very good three large toilet shower blocks all a short walk away. Views are outstanding all over the site looking out towards Skye. Direct access onto golden sandy beach.

Very well stocked shop even better than the shops in the town and fairly priced. Very dog friendly plenty of walks available from the site and a little further a field.

Will definitely be back next year!

 Huge site but hides itself well in the dunes. No marked touring pitches but you can choose your space as long as 7m between other campers. Few hardstanding pitches but grass seems well draining. Some exposed pitches in bad weather but more sheltered pitches can be found in the dunes. Toilets/showers modern & spotless. Play area for children, cafe on site, they recommend booking for evening meals. Reception open until 6pm and has well stocked shop. Laundry facilities in middle block. Camping pods & wigwams also available. Sandy beach is over the dunes.

Reviewer: Soozndave 6 reviews from this member

 Probably my favourite campsite so far. Amazing beach and plenty of space around you on site. Has a great kids play area and even a bmx/scooter ramp which the kids loved, the camp shop is well stocked and the facilities were clean tidy. It is a huge site and you choose your own pitch as long as you are 7 mtrs from your neighbour. Highly recommend.

 We rented a wigwam for two nights.

What a great campsite - fantastic location with wonderful sea and island views, huge beach, boat launching facilities and warm and helpful welcome.

We have stayed here before, but now there is a great restaurant on site with sit and and take away menu which was superb.

Definitely recommended if you can make the journey to the north west of Scotland.
