We stayed here in August and to be fair the actual caravan was fine. Nothing special but after all it is a caravan you are booking so what do you expect. It was very clean and tidy and well equipped and spacious enough, could have done with some drawer space or shelves in the wardrobe rather than just hanging space. Also on arrival 2 light bulbs were not working so the bedroom and hall area were in complete darkness at night, this should have been checked before arrivals I feel. The boiler did break down 3 times in our 5 day stay but the staff came out and fixed it right away and were very friendly. The actual park is not very pretty and I feel that a lot could be done to improve the approach to the park and the general areas to make it look a lot more appealing it was like driving into an industrial estate and just looked run down. The beach is reached by going over a rusty railway bridge, the first part of the beach you first hit is very dirty (strewn with rubbish) and needs a very big clean up, which if they did it could be quite pleasant as there are some fantastic views out to sea and across to the islands and down by the seafront over the first block of stones/rock pools is nice if you ignore the rubbish higher up the beach. There is a pool onsite which is clean but basic and looking a bit tired, but they do run some interesting extras like water zorbing etc that the kids enjoyed. Dissapointing that there is no restaurant on site and the bar and arcade area felt grubby and needed some updating. We used it mainly as a base and that was fine as there are some lovely areas of Scotland to explore within a short drive.
