This site fitted the bill perfectly for us, it had everything we required at the right stage of our travelling!! This mainly was to be able to launch our boat and catch fish, which we did.

The site has a few statics with the touring area to the other side of these. The best pitches look out over the beach with further pitching set back on the other side of the access road. It's all reasonably compact and the site tends to fill up towards the end of the day, most people being in motorhomes and touring and then empty out in the mornings.Having said this, there was a family camped next to us in a magnificent tent with a small motorhome and they were there for a couple of weeks and came every year.

Facilities are good, dish washing, laundry, excellent showers, electric hook ups and a nice beach to play on!!

This site certainly filled up in the evening and booking is advisable in peak season, although we just turned up, admittedly early in the day.

Unique Qualities: Quiet beachside location with beautiful views across Gruinard Bay to the mountains beyond. Superb fishing from the boat as well.

There is even an old ruined chapel and grave yard to wander around.

12 a night for the two of us without electricity which is more than we would normally pay, but it suited our purposes.

Open April to October.
