We had booked to stay at this park from Mon - Frid. The park itself is clean and tidy and the caravan (although very small) was clean. We had one meal in the on site restaurant and it was lovely. We didn't go into the other sde where the "turns" were on so cannot comment on that. The staff were very friendly. The reception doesn't open till 9 in the morning and closes at 6 in the evening. The on site shop never seems to open on time but is very quick to close at 6 oclock. The actual approach to the caravan site is up a very long and steep hill. Although there are steps to cut through instead of having to follow the road round it is still a bit of a trek. We left the car at the caravan couple times and walked down fully intending to "trek" back up but we ended up getting taxi at cost of £3. There is absolutely nothing to do at Wemyss bay but is ideal as a base. We visited Isle of Bute (which is a bit run down since my last vist), Isle of Cumbrae which was really lovely. If you go as foot passenger to Cumbrae there is a bus waiting at the ferry to take you into the town of Millport at cost of £3 each return. We did Largs which is very nice, Gourock was also nice but we found we had exhausted everything by Thurs so we moved on elsewhere. We had glorious weather whilst we were there which made a huge difference. Hope this review helps.
