 Lovely family run site. Nicely placed as a base to explore the Uists or indeed as an overnight pit-stop for anyone passing through on their way elsewhere! Dave, Diane and Rosie are super friendly hosts, knowledgable and helpful and this was their first full season here.

The grassed areas are flat, drain well, are well cared for and great to pitch on 👍🏼

The facilities are spot on, well kept and very clean. The campers kitchen is a nice touch as it is also somewhere you could go and hide out for a bit if the weather is pants! Equally there is plenty of space to relax outdoors on-site and just a short walk away (over the dunes at the back) you can visit the beach and watch the local wildlife.

There is a decent supermarket just a handful of miles away and even a Chinese takeaway if you fancy something more exotic :)

There’s nothing to really fault at Otters Edge, although from chatting with Dave, the family are clearly in the process of putting their stamp on the place and have ambitions to make it even better. Good luck guys, and happy 2nd winter!

 Owners and staff very helpful and informative, nice walk to a beautiful beach,

We used our own facilities but access to fresh water water, we were allowed to let our grey water drain as the site has a sand base.

New operators of the site, just their first year, only downside was we had to leave at 10:30 in the morning, we would have liked a more leisurely morning.

We would come here again.

 A wonderful campsite with excellent facilities. There was plenty of hot water for showering and washing-up but sadly the washing machine was out of order.

The facilities and campsite were spotlessly clean. Dave, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and had an excellent knowledge of the area.

There is a wonderful butcher's shop and Chinese takeaway about 7 miles away and also a local shop.

The location is excellent for touring Benbecula and Uist but also has a wonderful beach behind the site where we saw seals, porpoises and even an otter as well as many seabirds.

There's lots of excellent walking opportunities, stone circles, beaches and other places of interest.

We would highly recommend and we will definitely revisit.

 Really nice site, owners look after you and are very welcoming.

They have recently taken it over and have already made improvements to the facilities and electrics.

Easy access to the beach. Great for dog owners. Cheers D&D

 Just spent 10 days cycling the Hebridean Way and had the pleasure of staying at Otters Edge campsite on two separate nights, once on the way up and once on the way down.

What can I say from the moment we passed through the gates you felt very welcome Dave is a great laugh very informative and clearly knows how to deal with weary travellers.

Facilities block is always kept lovely and clean due to the hard work of Diane and Rosie, Dave’s wife and daughter.

I would not hesitate to return here again maybe spend a week next time, and in case you weren’t aware Benbecula is the metropolis of the Hebrides.

Thank you again for a great stay. Myself and Queen Victoria enjoyed it immensely.

 Lovely warm welcome from Rosie and her Dad.

Nice flat pitches, close to a beautiful beach.

Toilets and showers were adequate.

Owners have only recently bought site, gradually putting their stamp on it.

 The site is ideally placed for access to the beach and there is a hotel and shop close by.

We were warmly welcomed but after that there was no sign of the owners.

Unfortunately there is only one shower in both the ladies and gents toilets- in a rather dated building.

We felt that the check-out time was slightly earlier than most other sites (10. 30).

 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!

 Fantastic site ran by a very friendly, informative and helpful couple who you could easily chat to for hours.

Facilities were clean and the pitch had all flat spaces so was great for our tent.

The beach was lovely for a walk and our kids were delighted at spotting 2 seals for the first time.

Really great site and I wish we had stayed here a few more nights, really felt so welcome for first time travellers to the area.
