We stayed recently for 4 nights at this site in the tin tent nr1. Initially we had no high expectations, but on arrival we were very surprised. The tin tent 1, toilet and shower rooms were sparkling clean and the same high standard was kept trough all our stay. The tin tent 1 had everything we needed to prepare our own food. There is no running water inside the tin tent, instead we used outdoor sink, shower and toilet which are only 10 meters away and we had no issues with that. Host is very friendly and we felt very welcome there. The location was perfect for exploring northern Scotland, including NC500 and for £22 per night it made our holiday extension to remote parts of Scotland possible. Highly recommending this site to anyone looking for accommodation in this and surrounding area.

We stayed for one night on a camping pitch. Such a peaceful location and very sheltered (especially after you've spent a night or two on the coast!). Very well priced for a family feel where you're made to feel very welcome. The sheltered BBQ area is great if you're wanting to warm up on a night, and Bobby's is a well put together games room with essentials available to buy if needs be. The toilets were clean as was the shower but they aren't as well established as other sites - queues were a slight issue in the morning for the loos! Apart from the slight short fall, the facilities are generally good and we enjoyed our stay.

Thank you for taking the time to review our site. We are always glad to receive positive reviews and also appreciate feedback about any improvements we can make. We note your point on the single shower. We do restrict numbers due to this and am sorry if you experienced a delay in getting your shower. We are in the process of planning/installing a second shower which should alleviate this for next season. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back in future. Craig, Sasha & family :)

Great little place. Got a family feel to it with only around 8/9 tent pitches. It has access to bbq, covered dining and a cool chill out and games room called ‘Bobby’s’. Nice couple that run it, you’re made to feel very welcome.

Lovely informal setting. Little ponds. BBQs under cover, and also covered area for dishwashing. A lovely touch was the little "snug" with pool, darts, table football, maps etc. Just a shame that, because we were only passing through (and the weather wasn't great) we couldn't take advantage of the facilities.
