Stunning location, easy walk down to the village. For groups of 2-4 the huts (wigwams) are a warm dry alternative to tents. Only four male showers which could be an issue if the site is busy. Reception staff are friendly and helpful but only has basic amenities. All made up for by the fabulous scenery

Very good campsite. Facilities all good, note that there are extra toilets in the laundry for all those complaining about only two toilets and two showers. It is in a field on the west coast so it gets very wet underfoot. This drags grass into the toilets and makes them look untidy, but short of building some more paths there... More

A good campsite even in bad weather (rain, rain and more rain) some great little walks and down hill all the way to the pub! Facilities were very good although only 2 showers so timing is important. A good place to stay.

Stayed in Hut 5. Smoke alarm was ripped out, curtain rail hanging off, dimmer light switch non functional, outdoor light broken and vent on window ripped out so that a 40mph gale blew threw the hut all night, so despite there being a panel heather could get no benefit from it. Stuffed window with plastic bags and seemed to help.... More

Bearing in mind the cost it's difficult to rate this higher. We liked our hut well enough but it's expensive for what you get if it's just 2 of you sharing. As ever you're at the mercy of fellow campers - bad luck for us there were some people who couldn't use the toilets in the accepted fashion and left... More

We booked a night here and turned out we were the only campervan there for the night. Got to pick where we were situated for the night but had to choose a pitch when we booked. It was lovely and peaceful and situated about a ten min walk from the pub down the hill and next to the loch. The... More

We spent 5 nights here in September and hired one of their new static caravans. Ok, not the cheapest if there's only 2 in a 6 berth caravan, but couldn't beat it for cleanliness and comfort. En suite toilet, separate shower-room and gas Central heating - superb! Nice big site, not too busy and friendly welcome on arrival. Definitely a... More

Between the rutting stag that I swear was in the campsite and the owl in the tree above our pitch, well, ear plugs were needed for a sleep. but, WOW! Stags were roaring to each other from going dark till after first light. Midges were ataying away thankfully. Toilet block could be considered inconveniently placed if camping in the second... More

Great campsite in terms of view and friendly owners. However, we had our experience spoiled by 2 main things: - lack of facilities (only 4 toilets and 2 showers for each). Powercut in the morning...great when taking a shower. Floor absolutely disgusting , full of grass and mud. Also the facilities are behind the reception so if you are further... More

This is a great little campsite in one of my favorite places in Scotland. We stayed in the wooden wig wams for two nights and it was a perfect alternative to camping in tents. The wig wams have four mattresses which can be configured in to various beds, however we made a double stacked bed which added extra comfort. Just... More
