Stayed here for one night with our camper van. Shop and chippy closed due to time of year but that was understandable. When we arrived at the reception, we were greeted by a very rude woman who booked us in. I got the impression that we were a complete inconvenience for her and she couldn't be bothered with the effort. Because of that, I wouldn't stay again.

Facilities also very basic and unclean. Nice location however.

Visited the beach on a beautiful sunny morning, the beach is absolutely stunning with crystal blue waters. Would definitely recommend!

Stunning location, well worth negotiating the narrow winding road. The WiFi Service was very welcome as no phone signal. Facilities clean & well kept, able to pitch up really close to the shore. Stunning beach - great place to escape to and recharge your batteries. But stock up on supplies first, you don’t want to be travelling that wee road too often in a motorhome

It is well worth a visit as it has white sands and that turquoise sea but if you’re camping, I’d go to Clachtoll. It’s a bit further on but it allows dogs, has great owners and a fabulous wee shop alongside that sells everything.
We saw dolphins and eagles there, and a stoat?

Most beautiful spot. The beach near the campsite is lovely but make the effort to walk overthe hill and there is a quieter, more secluded beach. White sand & turquoise sea.
Sheer heaven.
