A Slice Of Scottish Heaven!

Bioran Dubh Croft
I first saw photos of this CL about two years ago but it has taken us until now to visit. I must confess, having read one of the previous reviews, I was a little nervous about what we were going to find. But all was good. Fabulous views for which am I am happy to pay £20 - it’s got to be preferable to looking at the back of another caravan on a club site. There are three drive on/ drive off type pitches one of which we used. It did slope a bit but we had no trouble getting level or erecting our awning. The remaining two pitches are a little more tricky to access being at the side of the CL. As others have mentioned, there was no sign of the owner - we didn’t see him at all during our stay. However all the information you need is available to read on arrival - payment envelopes are provided, info about the local area etc. WiFi worked well. Bins fo need some attention - recycling bin was overflowing whilst we were there. Easy walk along the lane towards Jubilee Bridge which then gives access to a disused but surfaced multi use railway line. It’s about a mile and a bit walk to Port Appin - village shop/ post office plus a couple of hotels and a gift shop. All in all, a lovely CL, would definitely revisit.

FANTASTIC- Just how a CL should be

Bioran Dubh Croft
Great site with the most amazing views of Castle Stalker. Great access to the cycle route 78 which has to be one of the most scenic cycle routes in the country. It is so nice to go to an unspoilt CL which isn't perfectly manicured and tidy .(how CL's used to be ) and whilst the owner did not meet you, there was adequate information upon arrival and the bins were frequently emptied. We ate at the Pierhouse hotel one evening , fantastic seafood restaurant.Cannot recommend enough and we will be back. Loads to do and see in the area.

DISAPPOINTED..Unsuitable for caravan and awning

Bioran Dubh Croft
As previous reviewers the views are superb, but that does not excuse the owner for lack of maintenance and lack of appearance…as stated by the description Stuart did not welcome us nor make any form of appearance during our stay. The pitches are all sloping and there is no room to accommodate a caravan, awning and car on the pitches without blocking access to other pitches. The site was badly maintained and the waste bins never emptied during our stay. We were not the only ones complaining but no sight of owner left no means to express opinion. Entrance road is difficult with a steep blind summit. The site is peaceful but no direct walking from site except onto a single track road where speeding vehicles make walking to the nearest footpath at Jubilee Bridge perilous at times, especially if a dog is with you on a lead. SITE WELL OVERPRICED for facilities (not!) provided….site relying on its scenic position not its facility provision.

A great site with fantastic views

Bioran Dubh Croft
What a beautiful site, the pitches are well spaced out with all of the pitches having a fantastic view of Castle Stalker or Castle aaarrrghhh if you are a Monty Python fan. Its so peaceful to sit and watch the wildlife we didn't want to leave. Plenty of things to see and do nearby or if you just want to relax and enjoy the fantastic scenery this is the place to visit.

Return Visit but this time in June

Bioran Dubh Croft
This was a return visit having first found this wonderful site in Sept 2019. My first review pretty much says it all however can also recommend dinner with the lovely proprietor, Janet, of Druimniel House and a visit to the secret gardens on Lismore.
