 I spent 3 nights, 1 night on my way to Lewis and 2 nights on the way back to relax.

Campsite is perfect, just what you need. Super clean, kitchen space is super convenient, pitches are really good and close access to the beach is a big plus (I spent hours gazing at the local seals, and, if you are lucky, you can spot otters).

Last but not least, the team at Otter's is just fantastic. Really helpful, resourceful and so friendly. A wee family!

 The owners were wonderful, very friendly, much enthusiasm for the area and it's wildlife, they had plenty suggestions for places to go to see various species as well as good local knowledge.

They really seemed to care for their guests, which is a lovely touch.

Well located campsite surrounded by machair and just a stones throw from a lovely beach. The birdsong is epic, as was the local flora and fauna.

Facilities were simple but ample enough but impeccably clean at all times which is refreshing for a campsite.

The site was quiet and guests had decent space to themselves.

Restaurant and bar within walking distance, food shop just a 5 min drive away.

It's the perfect location for getting to all of the isles in the chain.

 A very worm welcome from Coventry Dave

A legend in his own back garden 😂😂😂

We observed Otters and Seals just over the sand dunes by the site.

The site is very flat however a little featureless but all the facilities were clean and tidy.

 Location really good - shortish walk to the dunes and the beach. Spent a good while out on the dunes and saw seals and an eagle.

Sadly no otter - the owner was really helpful and keen to give us tips on how to spot the local otter but she was not to be seen!

Facilities fairly basic but fine. Looking forward to coming back again in future once the new owners have had a bit more time to get some work done in the facilities block.

 Campsite host family were marvellous and helpful and enthusiastic with knowledge of area and offer of hot drink on arrival!

It met all our needs and there was always hot water and short wait for shower if any.

Electricity available for charging and campers kitchen and fridge.

No washing up sink or hand-driers but I think they are working on this!

Thanks so much for helping to make our stay fabulous!

Currently ďtiredĒ but with good plans to improve by new owners.

Pleasant 3 min walk to glorious beach.

Reviewer: Penwrith 1 review from this member

 Found the site by chance and was allocated a space with EHU by the owner. Owners were friendly. The site struck me as a bit bleak though weather not great at the time which didnít help. Toilet and shower block very clean but a bit dated. Didnít use showers. Washing machine and tumbler there but had to see the owner before using it and I think had to be there a min of 2 nights which is a bit strange. Price very reasonable, think it was £15 for the night for myself and motorhome.

I have dogs and for walking them itís great - a lovely beach nearby and able to walk for a long way round the machar too.

Fine for the night but wouldnít rush back, it just lacked warmth somehow and not because the sun wasnít out!

WiFi available but @ £2 /hour. Thought Iíd download a film to watch @ night but after an hour only 10% done completed - signal more off than on. Most sites have free WiFi if itís offered but if paying for it I would expect a good signal so the charge is a bit cheeky. 
Management response: Hi

Price for motorhome 1 person and hook-up rate including showers charged at Shellbay would be £13. Motorhome 2 people with hook-up would be £19 per night.This person was unsure as it states he thinks he paid £15.

As regards internet we clearly state that this facility is not supplied by us but through Voove services Balivanich who cover an extended area through the Uists and other islands. It's a pity this person did not inform us if he paid £2 per hour and download unsuccessful.

We have signs on site to welcome people. Pity he didn't read them! I can't understand what warmth he was looking for. Again if he had any problems we would be only too glad to help.

 I had doubts about staying on Benbecula as Iíd heard it was very bleak. How wrong can you be! It was beautiful with the typical glorious Hebridean beaches yet there were shops, restaurants and hotels all within easy reach of the site.

The owner of the site was welcoming and friendly and the facilities were fine if a little tired and dark. It was very clean. The site provided everything we needed including EHU. The pitches are grass and ours was level enough. In fact, the whole island was flat.

We would stay here again.

 We stayed on this site for one night with an electric hookup. The facilities were all spotlessly clean although very dated. The owner was very helpful. There is easy access to the beach and a hotel/pub along the road that serves food. There was no wifi. The site was perfectly adequate for one night but could do with a bit of a makeover. I would not have wanted to stay any longer than one night. It is an old military site and the pitches are a bit uneven. The prices was comparable with others we stayed at on the same trip.

 Nice little site close to lovely beach. Pretty flat with EHUs. The shower blocks were spacious & spotless. Great showers with good pressure & plenty of hot water. Pay at the bungalow & find your own spot. A couple of hotels within 10mins walk for drinks & food. Recommended.
