I am reading previous reports of this Campaite, somewhere that I personally camp 3 - 5 times a year and have been doing for the past 10 years, the reports, (whilst they are personal opinions and must be respected) seem to reflect the modern approach to camping and show disappointment that everything is not laid on at this site as...

The camping ground was flooded and swampy, hardly suitable as a camping, however management claimed that is was fine. The advertised wi-fi was unavailable. Showers were few only and quite basic. There was some sort of foghorn attached to the ladies-showers, that kept me awake most of the night. Worst part is the way management treats its customers: we were... More

The setting could not be more perfect and the area is beautiful beyond description. The campsite, on the other hand, was a considerably less delightful experience. Oh how I wish I had read the reviews here first! We had opted for a camping hut (often called a Wigwam), which was dry and basic and gave us shelter for the night,... More

Nice stop on a quick west coast tour. The facilities are basic and it's a bit of a trek from the other end of the camp site and a que for toilets in the morning. Could use some serious drainage up grading around the place a fair few cars and sunk before I arrived.

All the previous reviews have an element of truth in them, but require perspective so here's my attempt. Getting there. On a bike this is a no brainer, you are going over Bealach na Bà. If you've ever gone over Hardknott or Wrynose pass in the lakes this mountain pass will not bother you. It will definitely entertain in high... More

We have visited the campsite at Applecross over the last 10 years and have always loved the location and the village BUT the campsite continues to disappoint with it's prices and lack of welcome. The wet weather has had an impact on the site of course this year but the hard standings show a total lack of maintenance. During our... More

Been coming to this campsite every year but it will take a fair bit to entice me back again... Campsite has gone to pot. Everywhere was rutted and churned up. Wigwams need maintenance. Dirty, smelly (had obviously been mopped with an old sour mop) and generally run down. On site restaurant used to be really good but is now used... More

Visited for the third year in a row and it is clear that no decent maintenance gets carried out here. The drainage still not addressed - the track still rutty with staff speeding along it making the track worse. The silicone on the washing area hanging off and missing. Dismantled fencing just laying about with grass cuttings piled on top.The... More

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
