Profile of our beautiful pods

General

  • Small and peaceful park a few steps from the beach
  • Spectacular sea views over to Jura and Islay
  • Wildlife and birdwatching haven

It's only a few steps from your accommodation to the beaut beach of Muasdale Holiday Park on the west coast of Kintyre: your dog will surely be delighted.

As will scenery seekers: 'perfect', 'stunning' and 'beautiful' are just a few of the plaudits piled on the spectacular sea scenery from this park – now under new ownership – along with an observation from one chuffed former guest wondering who would need a telly when pitching up here…?

Muasdale is a small, peaceful and family-run park midway between Tarbert and Campbeltown, and in a coastal locale of splendid scenery, right on the beach with striking vistas over to the islands of Islay, Jura and Gigha. The ferries are a short drive from the site for days of island-hopping; you can even get over to Ballycastle and Northern Ireland for the day via the Isle of Islay.

As you might reckon, this is wildlife and birdwatching heaven, with seals, otters and springtime nesting birds on the beach, more seals in the surrounding waters, and many a seabird overhead. It's fishing land too, so bring your kit with you.

Supplies can be picked up at two large supermarkets in Campbeltown or at the village shop in Muasdale, which is well stocked with essentials. The local bus stop 100 yards from the site runs to Campbeltown and Tarbert Taynloan to meet up with the Gigha ferry, or Kennacraig to meet up with the Islay ferry; this is also the main bus to Glasgow.

And then there are the sunsets around here: take a minute now and sigh happily over those site pics...

    Stunning location

    Disliked: 

    No staff on site. No reception. Pitches allocated on email but free for all on site. No cleaning of waste and chemical toilet disposal. We had accepted that the toilet and shower block was closed but that is no excuse for a complete lack of site management.

Excellent site - right next to the beach!08/08/2020

  • Liked: 

    The views from this beachside site are simply stunning, and just sitting listening to the waves and birds for a few days was lovely.

    Good spacing between pitches and a simple, effective call on arrival system. Take storm straps and extra pegging if you're planning to use an awning as it was breezy. Good wifi coverage on the site.

    Dog-friendly site; it may just be a coincidence that all the "vans" had dogs when we were there.

    I saw from previous reviews that the site is next to the A83 - it is, but you don't really notice the traffic.

    Mausdale Stores (the grocer) is just a couple of hundred meters away, a short stroll either along the beach or the road and is incredibly well-stocked with all the necessities.

    Glenbarr stores and garden centre is just a few miles along the road and we would highly recommend there for brunch.

    Crew Fish and Chips in Campbeltown is also great if you want a harbourside fish supper.

    Vast amount of rotting seaweed causing bad Oder and murky water. Facilities required an overhaul. No adequate fence to road and some road noise but not unbearable.

Brilliant little quiet campsite28/07/2020

  • Electric grass touring pitch (sea view)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The location of the park was perfect for what we were looking for, right on the beach! We really liked that it was a tiny site as during these times the less people the better!
    The pitches were level and well spaced out.
    The free WiFi was really good (which was definitely needed at one point because the rain was horrific)

    Disliked: 

    Was a bit confusing when we first got there as no one official came to greet us (understandably due to COVID) but because of this we didn’t know if it was a “pick your own pitch” or we had one allocated so we spent a while hanging around to see if anyone would come out to confirm this before we set up. No one did so we set up where we liked anyway!
    One thing I would say is it would have been nice to have a fire pit near the site as the wind that comes off the sea is a cold one.
    £25 a night did seem quite steep considering there were no facilities what so ever but did feel the view helped justify it a little bit!

    No one came to say hello (owners) & told to stay on a pitch already occupied. No facilities but that's Covid19 fault, not owners. Also, last time visiting, picnic benches & fire pits available, this time, neither.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Get ready to go a-sailing… and along to Campbeltown for regular boat trips to Ailsa Craig, Sanda Island and around the peninsula for wildlife and whale watching. On damp days, take the kids to seek refuge at the small soft play, the swimming pool or the oldest cinema in Scotland. Forest and hill walks are a short distance from the site.

A boat also goes to Ballycastle from here via Islay: from there, take a ferry back over water to reach the fab and tiny RSPB reserve of Rathlin Island (here there be puffins).

Are you a golfer? And if so, have you ever hit a ball over the Atlantic? If your responses here were first Aye and then a wistful Nay, take the tees to Machrihanish Golf Club above the northern tip of the Mull of Kintyre to try it out. Several other golf courses are in the area once this has whetted your golfing whistle: try Carradale and Dunaverty to start things off.

This is also whisky land, with the two distilleries of Glen Scotia and Springbank in Campbeltown. Both have gift shops (huzzah) and run regular tours.

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
