Thanks for owners help

In June stayed here on the way up North and on the way back, but for some technical reason I was unable to activate the "leave review" button until now. This was an ideal site for us; basic and quiet with good views. There are not many CLs left that charge so little and we think that it is important that we support these before they all succumb to rise of facilities and related prices. The owner, Margaret, called to chat with us both times and we spent a long chat putting the world to rights. It was after we left the site to return south that we called for fuel in Nairn and it was only when we were in Pitlochry (89 miles away) that evening that I realised that I had left the filler cap and bunch of keys, including door locks and ignition spare at the fuel pump. A phone call to the petrol station confirmed that they had found the cap. I then called Margaret to ask if she happened to be in Nairn could she collect the cap. It tuned out that she knew the owners of that station and she offered to collect and post it to us that same day. It was waiting for us by the time we got home and she refused payment (we sent it anyway). So here is an owner who makes precious little for letting us stay on her land and then goes out of her way to help us. Thank you Margaret, we will see you again we are sure.

Lovely stay

We.only stayed for one night. It was very peaceful Mrs Lyle was very friendly and welcoming. The site is basic, and is reflected in the price but has all the amenities you need apart from electric the site is surrounded by fields. Would certainly use this site again when we visit Scotland again.

Misleading

This site is described as 'a 3 acre field', not the case when we were there in May 2013. It was a strip of rough tussocky grass down the side of what may well have been a 3 acre field but the field had been planted and was certainly not for use with a caravan. The best 'spots' on the strip were already taken and two of them had 'permanent' caravans on them, the third one was next to the gate and was occupied when we arrived leaving us, with a average sized caravan, to try to pitch in one of the other gaps between the trees. We managed but could not use our awning because of the trees, luckily it was spring and the trees, large oaks. were still in bud, had they been in full leaf we would not have been able to stay as there would not have been room. We like the cheap, basic 'no frills' CL sites, but we expect the descriptions of the sites to be accurate. We know that we are not paying very much for the site but we have usually travelled quite a distance to get there, we don't expect to have to find an alternative at the last minute because the site owners are 'economical with the truth'.
