Reviewer: Macmacmac 1 review from this member

Hired a static caravan here for 2 nights. Although very expensive at £177 both my son (36) and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There was an 18th birthday party in the games room on the first night (Saturday) with loud disco music but ended around 10. 15. Very peaceful 2 nights with absolutely stunning views over to the the sound of Jura and Islay. Don't bother with the shop or cafe its over priced and if you drive into tarbert you will find much much better food. But all in all I would really recommend this site for touring vans the beach and views are stunning and I will be back soon.

We stayed for 2 nights at £25 per night including EHU. - it was the Bank holiday Monday, reception had forgotten when we booked otherwise we would have been charged £27 per night!

It's a long drive through masses of static mobile homes to the camping area. Here is it fairly flat and you all get a view of Jura across the water. Showers & Loos great and clean, however we were told to just allow our 'grey' water to run into the grass and the CDP was a long drive back through the campsite following the signs. (They have said they plan to put a CDP nearer the camping ground in the future. )

Shop & cafe seemed expensive but it's a great place just to relax. We were very disappointed with shops in Tarbert local Co-Op had chiller problem and small local shops poor quality fruit & veg.

I used the laundry but again it's a long walk from camping ground.

We had driven for 525 miles to get here and the welcome we received was far from warm. The greeting was very matter of fact and indifferent to whether we stayed or not.

However, we requested a pitch without electric and were directed to a secluded grassy area right on the beach front, away from all other campers. For this we paid £21 for 2 adults and a tent. The view across to Jura was breath taking and the shower facilities were excellent, possibly some of the best showers around. The drinking water runs brown! Site wide wifi and a shop/café/games room at the entrance with several invites to regular worship opportunities! We declined and didn't use the café or shop.

Nearest shop was the Co-Op in Loch Gilphead, about 30 mins drive. There was a Michelin star restaurant just down the lane but you will need to book and you will be charged accordingly.

Otters swim up the coast in front of the tent and we sat all day just looking out to sea, watching the wildlife. Fantastic.

As a final note of warning, as soon as a Westerly picks up, there is little shelter at the front. So, despite the initial reception, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay

Wonderful views and location. We stayed for two nights in May. The views of Jura and the sunsets were fantastic from our pitch on the waters edge. We did not use the shop or the café on site. We did eat at the Kilberry in on both nights. It is very good but quite small so you need to book.

The ladies shower facilities and washing up area on the main site need some tlc.

I would definitely go back but would opt for the camping field where the shower block was more fit for purpose.

We spotted lots of seals, dolphins and deer

Stayed her for 1 night in a motorhome. The site was chosen purely to allow us to eat in a local restaurant and I'm so glad I chose it! We had a fabulous pitch almost on the beach helped by the fact it was 22 degrees with pure blue skies and sunshine. The facilities were fabulous with amazing showers and always clean. Site is huge but well spaced out and run by Christians with no sale of alcohol on site but you can bring your own. There are no shops within about 12 miles so bring everything you need although in season there is a cafe that sells breakfast, lunch and dinner and a site shop although we didn't use either. And the reason for the visit was to eat at The Kilberry Inn which although a little expensive was well worth it but do book in advance as I had as fully booked on the night of our visit.

Other than the site shop and cafe there are no shops etc within 15 miles so be prepared and have everything you need or make sure you know the opening and closing times of the shop and cafe when you check in. The kilberry inn looked very expensive so we didn't go.

I walked up to the cafe for a coffee and breakfast at 8:30 but it didn't open till 9:00, I didn't wait, we packed up and headed to Tarbert for a hearty breakfast but I would have preferred to spend my money on site and support the business. Also important to know you can only get a takeaway from 6pm, we didn't know this, we didn't bring plates etc but it was fine eating very good food from plastic containers.

The site, location, views, facilities are very good and well worth a visit. Three fridges and a microwave for campers to use in the wash up room, I didn't know this before I arrived.

This was my first attempt at camping and I chose the site for its previous reviews, facilities and location, I wasn't disappointed and the weather was a great bonus as we were right on the seafront on a perfect pitch.

I think the site has many regulars and I'm likely to become one.
