Tuesday 14 August, first of six venture taking the grand daughters for their first camping trip. I had seen the Lochranza Camp site a few months earlier during a walk nearby. I met the owner and talked briefly about the area, it seemed the ideal place to stay. On booking into the site, Nigel and his wife Kathy were on hand to explain everything about the site, and it's facilities. The washrooms were spotlessly clean, plenty of paper towels, hand cleanser, everywhere you looked you could see the attention to detail they both put into making this a most welcoming and enjoyable site to visit. The constant supply of hot water for the showers was a gem, and the covered dish washing area for pots and pans made life so much easier. The pitches for tents, caravans and motorhomes are laid out in a well spaced area, fresh water and electric hook ups available, and we never had the sense of being crammed in. It was a friendly atmosphere, no rowdy groups or noise, everyone seemed to respect the tranquility the surrounding mountains brought to the site. To our joy, on several of the days we saw more than one golden eagle soaring around the mountains and as you can see in the photos, the stag and accompanying deer move freely through the site and are content to stand happily for photographs. I would like to thank Nigel and Kathy for an enjoyable week which has left a very positive mark on my grand children who cannot wait to return. Another of the plus points for the site, is the campers room. A little oasis of information in a comfortable room, sofa's, armchairs, fridges, sink, kettle, microwave, all provided to give a little respite to campers needing a break from inclement weather or just to sit in a chair and have a cuppa. Adjacent to this room was the laundry. To sum it all up, if you want a place with scenery, safe for the kids, immaculately clean and warmly welcoming, then I heartily recommend the Lochranza Caravan and Camp site.
