We stayed here when doing the North Coast 500 in a motorhome and it was excellent. Chatty staff when booking in and then told to just pick a spot we liked. The facilities were top of the range and the toilet block even had a bath and hairdryers. The onsite restaurant was very good and the overall setting at the... More

We stayed for four nights in September and loved every minute. This was our 2nd visit to this site and no doubt about it we will return again in 2016 and can't wait. We stayed in one of the wigwams they are so comfy and cozy we slept so well. We enjoyed roasting our marshmallows over the fire pit watching... More

A gem of a campsite, with stunning views across wester Ross, towards Skye, lovely walks over the dunes onto white sandy beach, or opposite site entrance a fine 2 km circular route where you can enjoy fine views also. Has to have the best and cleanest toilet facilities I have seen on a campsite. Very relaxing and peaceful. We were... More

We're not campers but thought it would be fun to stay somewhere different. Stayed in a small wigwam for 2 nights. It was plenty big enough for 2 people. The toilet/shower block was close by and really clean. The site is just next to the beach and sand dunes - we were really lucky to have amazing weather and saw... More

Stayed in a Wigwam twice here and had a great time. Second time there though the midges were out in force and I still have the marks months later! It has to be one of the cleanest campsites I have ever stayed at and beautiful beaches, Recommend a visit to anyone but wear a midge proof suit haha!

We stayed for two nights in September but we really wish we'd stayed for longer! It's a highly organised, well run campsite with a lovely, unspoilt sandy beach and fabulous views over to Skye. Huge camping area with any number of good, flat pitches available and a great rule keeping tents at least 7 metres apart so you always feel... More

As regular campers and motorhomers in Scotland, this was one part of the country we had yet to try out.....and I have to say that the Sands campsite is one of the best we have encountered. The site is open, large and refreshingly informal (pick your pown pitch), and has a great beach and dunes on the doorstep. Nice little... More

Location right on the beach. Wonderful views. Airy and lots of room. Excellent facilities including a BATH in the toilet block. Very good, and I mean very good ( I'd do all my shopping there... Veggies, fruit, equipment, wine, fresh meat etc and the newspapers), on site restaurant very upmarket, not expensive, free wifi, friendly.....and the best coffee we had... More
