“Nice for a night or two.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

A lovely friendly site in a great location, the fresh bread and communal area were lovely, and always clean, slightly let down by limited bathroom availability comfy pitches and very pricey at £12pppn for camping!

The warm welcome and great facilities cant disguise its actually quite tricky to pitch a tent away from the dense undergrowth which houses the midges. A few more flat areas amd this site would be a winner. Nice to have the fresh bread.

Second time at Lickisto, camping this time as our campervan is in for repairs. Same beautiful location, but a different experience as this time we utilised the amazingly provisioned and cosy blackhouse. Loved the hostel style nature of it, as we met people from all walks of life - families, cyclists, walkers, and others like us just away for a weekend.

Down by the waters edge I caught 4 (small) mackerel in a very small space of time, saw an otter close up, 3 seals and, when we last visited in May, a Golden Eagle.

The relaxed, friendly, and rustic nature of the site makes it a must when visiting Harris, with a very warm welcome from John and Harvey and the hens.

Only downside is the midges, but thats to be expected in Scotland when you're surrounded by beautiful greenery. A midge headnet and plenty of your favourite midge deterrent (mine is G and T and smidge, though not in the same glass) are essential to allow you to enjoy the experience if you visit in midge season.

Fresh bread, ace hosts, communal blackhouse, lovely showers, private pitches. Spot on Harvey and John, many many thanks. Individual tour on arrival, genuine interest and concern to make our stay enjoyable, great local knowledge.
