Outstanding scenery with superb sunsets over Islay and Jura. Lovely quiet site with camping spot looking into the beach.

Anne is a wonderful host who gave us an extension cable as ours did not reach and even popped in to say goodbye on our last night.

We will be back.

We had a bad start due to a storm destroying our tent but thankfully managed to rebuild it and it was definitely worth it.

If your looking for a quiet getaway with wonderful seaviews and lovely beach walks then this is definitely for you.

We had a great time and are missing it already.

We have just returned from a lovely ten night stay at Killegreur campsite. The site is well run and we had a very pleasant greeting from the owner. Facilities are kept well and the showers were great.

The pitches are along the coast and we were treated to a visit from an otter one evening. Dolphins were seen a couple of months before hand too. My kids really enjoyed running out of the tent and dropping straight down on to beach to play. You are also allowed to have campfires on the beach too.

One note though, the site is exposed and if you intend on bringing a tent you need to be prepared for the wind. The site is in a good location mid way along the Kintyre Peninsula.

Campeltown is about a fifteen minute drive away and has a decent sized coop and tesco.

What an amazing place. We only stayed 2 nights as that was what we had planned on our tour but wish we'd stayed longer. Fantastic beach location and only a small site so not surrounded by vans.

In fact every pitch faces the ocean. And campfires on the beach. Toilets and shower facilities are adequate, clean, and in keeping with the feel of the site.

It was the highlight of our Holiday and can't wait to return. Note. No laundry facilities!

From talking to Ann on the phone to book the holiday, to turning up on the first day she was nothing but helpful and could answer every question asked and accommodate every request.

The tent was pitched right on the beach with fantastic views over to Ireland and Campbeltown was only 10miles away. The tent pitches are substantial with lots of room and plenty of electrical hookup points. No problems with rain or drainage while staying despite some torrential rainstorms.

All facilities are super clean and have everything you would expect of a high standard campsite. The beach is fantastic especially for walking dogs (we took our springer spaniel). There is plenty to do in and around the campsite.

Looking forward to going back later this year.

We stayed at this site for 2 weeks last year and 4 this year, we had a brilliant time despite some awful weather. Thank you for a very warm welcome. The site is quiet, friendly and next to a lovely beach with some of the best views I've seen from a site.

The shower block was always kept clean and in good repair. We never had to cue either which is a bonus. The site is a short nice walk/drive to shop and cafe in Glenbarr and supermarket, leisure centre, tourist info etc. Are only a short drive away in Campbeltown.

Despite being close to the main road, we heard hardly any traffic noise. The beach is the children's playground. If you are looking for spectacular views, peace and quiet, this is the place to visit.

We'll definitely be back.

Reviewer: Pawelwks 1 review from this member

We had chosen the site because of its location for cycling and the ocean views it has. The owner is friendly and helpful and we met her on the first day, the site is cheap, very cheap even and is dog and child friendly. The toilet block is always clean, with no worries about the hot water in taps and showers all the time.

The toilet block has outside tap for washing dishes and toilet waste disposal for those with their own toilets. The water can be taken from a tap on the toilet block and two other taps along the campsite's road.

If you want to have internet access, the best is vodafone (by the noticeboard in the toilet block) but I am using '3' and could find a signal in tent, not the greatest but it worked fine. The nearest shops are in villages Glenbarr, 20-30 mins walk and Bellochantuy - Farm shop (5 mins driveway along A83 towards Campbeltown).

For bigger shopping you have to drive to Campbeltown which is 15-20 mins drive. In Campbeltown you can find Co-op and Tesco. Attractions nearby are mostly wildlife and great views you can enjoy in good weather conditions.

On Friday before we left the campsite on Sunday morning, there was a celebration of 50 year anniversary of the campsite with campfire on the beach and fireworks with drinks, guitar singing, etc.

The owner, as I mentioned earlier is helpful. By that I mean that in windy weather she looked after tents and when we were away our tent's pegs loosen so she hammered them back. Because she is really friendly all of holiday-makers where friendly orientated, too.

Yes, we definitely recommend that site, and hope to visit the site next time!

Next to the beach, what better location could you want?

Within 10 minutes of our arrival everyone on the site was invited to help the owners celebrate 50 years of the site with cake and wine.

Very friendly owner and a spotlessly clean site. Will definitely visit again

Been going to Killiegruer on and off since I first started caravanning nearly 30 years ago with my first 200 2 berth glass windowed caravan special and can honestly say apart from the new toilet block has not changed a bit since my last visit last year.

Still holds the peace and tranquillity with panoramic breathtaking views. When I say new toilet block think it has been up for a while now. For a shoreline small site the toilet block is more than adequate and meets every campers needs and kept up to a good standard of cleanliness. If you want decent 4g Wifi and Freeviw telly don't come here but with the onset of satellite and they Dongo things you can bring your technology.

Beautiful shore line beach walk to the Argyll Hotel in Bellochcantuy. That will get rid of your city cobwebs. Although I have seen the hotel owners come and go over the years in the struggling tourist industry the hotel has very good reviews for food and drink.

Have witnessed porpoise slowly swimming past off shore. Have seen sea otters chasing salmon at the mouth of the River Barr near the site but my best memorys of all are the panoramic sun sets over Jura and Islay. Will live with you for ever.

The family have been camping and now caravanning here for three decades so it suits us rather well.

We like the dramatic location facing the Atlantic next land the USA.

There is a long beach mostly sand for several miles and the sunsets eagles gannets and otters are the big draw for us.

We did see otters from our caravan window two years in a row.

I am disabled and need a stick to get around so the disabled toilet with shower is appreciated.

EHU gives no problem for microwave heating or kettle just remember the maximum load.

The signal for Vodaphone and Giffgaff that's O2 is excellent.

My wi-fi ipad is 3 and that works ok.

The toilet block has been spotless in june.

It is a children's paradise if they like rock pools and beach life bring kids wet suits surfing is possible but there is an excellent beach five minutes drive away.

Glenbarr cafe shop and garden centre is nearby excellent food gas can be obtained there.

Dogs are welcomed by Ann the owner who like her father Neil before her is very friendly and helpful.

Remember it is a west coast beach site we have had two dry sunny weeks but be prepared for any weather.
