We stayed here for a weekend break with the kids. We found it very good value, and would rate it as the best campsite we've ever stayed in. We found ourselves a pitch overlooking the play area (and also helpfully catching a breeze which meant any midges were kept at bay!) with stunning views to the Minch and the Isles. The way the long grass is preserved around the pitches naturally separates tents out, so we really didn't feel like we had neighbours - and the way everything is so generously spaced out here adds to the feeling of privacy. The toilets and showers were quite new and were always immaculately clean, night and day, with lots of hot water, a free hairdryer, and straighteners for £1 if you felt the need!. The wash-up was good, no queueing, plenty of sockets for charging electricals, and it was a boon to have the kettle, microwave and hob available if need be. The play area is central and so much better than the usual boring fare - the kids spent literally hours in the old lifeboat and on the zipwire, or even just playing in the sandpits. Although I didn't see a single warden or "patrol" everything was clean and tidy, so they are obviously hard at work, but unobtrusively. The shop is excellent, better stocked than a supermarket - they have thought of everything! And the staff there were polite, efficient and friendly. The beach is amazing - clean, sheltered and quiet, with stunning views. I really can't think of a negative point. We will definitely back - we had our diaries out on the first night, planning our return!
