Beautiful, quiet spot

The views are superb. What a lovely spot. Access road is a little steep and rutted but not bad enough to be a problem. Pitches level - we didn't need to use the wedges for our camper. The Wifi was temperamental i.e. mostly didn't work and no coverage from O2, but we just disconnected from the cyber hive and enjoyed the views. Easy access to Port Appin and to the Old Inn at Portnacroish - It's a lovely 20 minute walk across the Jubilee Bridge. Also has good access to the local cycle ways. Wouldn't hesitate to use as a base again when visiting the area.

One of the best

First of all the review titled "Disappointing" is completely misleading in my view. If your idea of a perfect CL is a sterile manicured site then I'd go elsewhere. This site is a beautiful wee gem. Its clean and tidy and it has probably got the best view of any caravan site in the UK. The access is perfectly accessible. It seems to me the reviewer with the problems probably has an underpowered towcar. The grass was cut when we were there but it wasn't overly long anyway. I love it and will be back many times in the future.

Disappointing

Beautiful views but disappointing CL. Our car skidded slightly on the access incline and we couldn't see the road as we topped the brow of the 'hill'. We were totally dismayed when we saw the CL as it obviously wasn't that well maintained.There were no pitching instructions and no useful information packs etc. Our hard standing pitch (no.2) wasn't wide enough for our small caravan and porch awning and it wasn't clear where we were meant to park our car as the access roads needed to be kept clear for other outfits. It was eventually tucked in at the rear of our van. The grass between pitches apparently hadn't been cut recently and the grass around the hook up points didn't look as if it had ever been trimmed.We couldn't even sit in our awning as the ground was too uneven for our table and chairs. We spoke to two other visitors to the site who also felt it was overpriced for what was on offer. However, what made it worse was the total lack of personal communication. The booking and payment of deposit was done via a website and on arrival we discovered that the balance had to be paid via an envelope which we had to post in a box. We never met the owner at any point which is a shame as chatting to the owner is often the best way of getting to know an area.

Stunning setting, fantastic food nearby

Beautiful view across the loch to castle stalker ( featured at end of Monty pythons Holy grail!) easy access, good , free WiFi, chemical disposal, water and rubbish but no shower/wc facilities so must have your own. Can get midges to be expected as by water in Scotland! Didn't met the owner but honesty box for payments. Lovely walk right around the Loch, easy 10-15 min walk across the Jubilee bridge to reach The Old Inn pub/restuarant ( wooden walkway across the salt marsh- recommended) well worth a walk over and The Old Inn has it's own pathway off the lochside path ( you can see the back of the old inn and car park from the path approx 3rd path off the loch side path walking anticlockwise after jubilee bridge). Highly recommend food there, fantastic cosy atmosphere ( much better inside than outside impression from road) Food and menu simple but very nice ( black pudding, cheese and burger stack highly recommended as is the steak and sticky toffee pudding!) Great selection of drinks ( whiskys , gins etc) at reasonable prices, welcoming staff. Best to book as nearly full on a tuesday evening when we went. Not too far to explore Fort William etc, Beware narrow roads in the Highlands, we did lose a mirror to a French motorhome coming the other way too far into the middle!
