We booked a night but never made it to the farm. When we called to pick up the keys the lady almost insulted us because we didn't come straight from the ferry. She started telling us she didn't wan't to rent the room anymore and was very patronising. The most surprising thing is that when we tried to set up... More

We stayed at Traigh Cottage with our two little girls and had a wonderful relaxing break. The cottage is a great size for families with a spacious modern kitchen and comfortable living/ dining room space - all open plan. We found the owners to be very welcoming and attentive. MargaretAnne seemed genuinely interested in making sure we had a great... More

This cottage is in the most beautiful setting on a stunning beach. I stayed there with family for a week at Easter and enjoyed every minute, the weather was a bonus and we were able to watch glorious sunsets on the beach each evening . The cottage is bright, very spacious and well maintained. The large kitchen is perfect for... More

I camped here on a cycling tour of the island. I found the owner pleasant enough and the facilities perfectly adequate given that it is located on a remote beach in the far north west of the uk. Good hot shower and washing facilities. The outstanding thing about this place is the location; I suppose I was lucky camping at... More

Avoid this cottage and avoid this site, whether camping, B & B or in any of the cottages!!!! We stayed in Traigh Cottage the week between Christmas and New Year and had high hopes of a lovely relaxing week. We encountered one problem after another and the owners were useless! To start with we were told by Mrs. M that... More

I enjoyed the most wonderful solo camping trip here in July, with the waves on my doorstep and the rain (then the sun, then the rain! ;)) in my face. I just can't understand why people go camping and expect 5* boutique hotels - that's not the deal! If you want stunning scenery, then you will have to accept basic... More

The view as you come into the campsite is spectacular, and we had very high hopes about our stay at Kintra Farm. Overview: - High price - we wish we had just free camped. - NO drinking water available. To repeat: NO drinking water available. Just one kettle to boil water for ~200 people. With an ominous sign warning of... More

This campsite is situated in a lovely location on the beach, and with even the most basic and usual facilities this would undoubtedly be a five star review. Frustratingly, the location is an undoubted draw for people visiting Islay, so I suspect the owners have little incentive to improve the site. I feel most of the - even negative -... More

We just returned from 3 nights at Kintra Farm campsite. This is a beautiful campsite where you can pitch your tent on dunes overlooking the beach. This is not "glamping", but great camping. We bought a bag of wood and some peat and built a fire on the beach. The facilities are basic. The site was not super busy so... More
