Stayed many times. Used to be great with the exception of the poor toilet and washing facilities. Now they seem to have thrown in the towel. They charge the same old prices (more even) but no longer provide any services worth a mention. No food provided any more - why? No decent wifi - just rubbish wifi in the reception.... More

We stayed here in the glamping pods, which were fine. Mattresses provided. However we felt that the toilet block could have been better cleaned and perhaps needed a bit of maintenance and or updating. Our previous site on this trip had much more basic facilities in portable buildings (they were busy building a new toilet block) but they were much... More

The owners seem to have given up here...motorbike gangs allowed to camp, revving their bikes and constantly swearing, shop sells almost nothing, wifi next to useless...if it were not for the Applecross Inn this place would be nothing. I wish we had camped on the beach.

We recently stayed in a wooden pod on the Applecross campsite. The beautiful setting was complimented by decent amenities and friendly staff. The pod itself was clean and comfy with plenty of room for two. A heater and a window meant that it was also fresh and warm.

Beautiful location and lovely staff who let us use the phone to call the breakdown service when our vintage hired camper van would not start. They could not have been more helpful. There are worse places to be stranded! Decent facilities which I believe are to be upgraded at the end of the summer season. Very popular campsite for a... More

While traveling The North Coast 500 with my wife, we came upon this campsite. It is spacious, has good maintained appliances and a very welcoming atmosphere. The wifi is excellent, they also have a place to sit and relax or to warm up a little. Highly recommended.

Lovely location. Great views but open to elements!! This is a large campsite. Taking tents, tourers, motor homes, and huts etc. It has however only 2 toilets and 2 showers!!! (In men's, assuming ladies is similar!) So be prepared for a long wait and to hold it in!!! Other than that, it's ok.

Great location but the static caravans are suitable for only two adults which makes them mega pricey. The twin beds are about 5ft long so no use for regular adults.had to end up sleeping on the floor. Handy for the Applecross inn and the Bealach for a cycle if you are keen enough?

The campsite is pretty basic, the toilets and showers could be cleaner but the biggest issue is that there is no onsite shop or anywhere to eat which given the location of this campsite is pretty inconvenient. It's hard to understand why the owners don't provide these amenities as it would make visiting this site much more pleasurable. We have... More
