Stayed on this site from 8 July to 15 July 2013. Scotland was enjoying a prolonged warm, dry and sunny spell.
This was my first visit to a CL.
On approaching the farm the first 3 pitches are located in a circular area to the right back of the road. The remaining 2 pitches are adjacent to the road and offer great views over West Loch Tarbert and the ferries for Islay arriving departing.
Great welcome and plenty of local Info from Mr Bastow. Good walking from the site and seek out the local "secret" a wonderful sandy beach near the village with wonderful views to Jura and Islay. Good walk to nearby hill which has the remains of an ancient fort at the top --also wonderful views over the islands. Remember stout footwear and waterproof trousers if weather has been wet as there is substantial overgrowth on some of the paths. Site very convenient for ferries to Islay, Colonsay,Jura, Arran and Gigha. Local shop /filling station has Calor Gas, milk newspapers, bread etc. Tarbert has larger grocery shop and services. Explore the Kintyre Way and there are miles of wonderful coast with extensive mostly gravel beaches.
If you are looking for a well manicured lawn or hard standing for a pitch this is not for you. This is informal and in wet weather the grass around the upper 3 pitches may be a problem.
Very convenient water taps and chemical loo disposal.
There is a working stone quarry immediately adjacent to the site and although I did not find the noise particularly intrusive during the day I did find my pitch at the side of the road very dusty when one of the large trucks passed. The quarry is not always in use but if it is consider the upper 3 pitches.
O2 mobile signal but it is weak.
During the evening and at the weekend the place was very peaceful. In the field across the road Mr Bastow's 2 horses regularly visited my location to check me out.
A few midgies appeared in the late evenings but I have experienced much worse.
I had a wonderful week and fully intend returning.
