This was the worst place I have stayed on my WHW trip. The campsite was sloping, riddled with stones and roots and a mile and a half from Drymen. The shower block/kitchen was verminous, crusted here and there with pigeon droppings and the proprietor offhand and unhelpful. All in all, an unpleasant first night on the WHW.

This is a basic but very functional campsite for walkers doing the WHW, For £5 a night what else do people expect? In our experience this is a well serviced site, the owner was up before 6 in the morning cleaning the toilets, showers and tidying the communal area before the campers got out of their tent! We are a... More

People have to understand, that this campsite is not a holiday park, and facilities available will be a little behind after those - that you can find at the campsites for 30pounds per night. For us (a young couple) - a stay was really perfect. Plenty of birds singing, deers going across the field behind the fence and sound of... More

I was a little concerned about stopping here after reading reviews, had little choice as the next campsite is otherside of Balmaha. I have idea why so many complain. The campsite is located on the way, stunning views and lush grass. The facilities are basic but showers are hot and toilets work. For £5.00 I am more than a happy... More

First of all I'll start by stating it was only £5 to camp for the night. However the site was in a poor state, the grass was badly needing cut, there was not a level pitch on site, the food prep area was filthy, in an old open barn complete with nesting birds, the showers were disgusting, the shower curtain...

First night on the WHW and we arrive late at this campsite with our backpacks and tent. Only one other tent on the site but we still couldn't see a level pitch. We did see in the long grass however, a large dog turd. At this point, if there had been an alternative we would have gone. We had sole... More

What a shame, This was the first stop on my West Highland Way walk for charity, We were given a telephone number to call upon arrival, there was no answer, we rang the door bell and had a frosty reception from the lady owner. We stayed in a Kacoon, there was no light, no socket, no room at all and... More

I personally wouldn't stay here again. I decided my sleeping bag wasn't adequate to stay in a tent again so I payed £25 for a kacoon, believe me it wasn't worth it. Although comfortable, it had no heat and no light... The toilets weren't terrible which is a bonus. The shelter didn't really deliver either... I wouldn't stop here again!

Myself and a friend camped here for our first night walking the West Highland Way. The location was definitely interesting - right in the heart of farm land and next door to a horse paddock. This didn't bother us, however some people might not appreciate the smell or the noise of the cows during the night! If anyone has a... More
