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 couple of the plaudits piled on the spectacular sea scenery from this park, along with an observation from one chuffed former guest pointing out who would need a telly when pitching up here…?

Muasdale is a small, peaceful and family-run park midway between Tarbert and Campbelltown, and in a coastal locale of splendid scenery, set 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 spending days 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 firm fishing land too, so bring your kit with you.

The well-maintained park facilities include a shower block with two wash basins and private ladies' and gents' washing areas. A washing-up area, chemical toilet and waste water disposal areas, and recycling facilities are also on site.

Supplies can be picked up at two large supermarkets in Campbelltown, and at the shop of Glenbarr three miles away, which also has a small garden centre, a café and free wifi. 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.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Awesome!! 18/06/2018

    Liked the fact it was a small park right at the beach. One of our support poles for our tent broke and the owner quickly jumped in and offered us his little pup cottage for us to use. Gratefully we accepted and found it very warm and comfy inside. All the things one would need such as kettle, microwave, toaster and awesome mattresses for a great sleep. He really saved us and we will definitely be coming back for weekends when we can to get that small camp cottage again!!
    The toilets, showers were spotless and the kitchen area for washing up was amazing, again, all the items that you would need was provided.

    Disliked: 

    Traffic noise, but then that is to be expected so that isn't their fault.
    Nothing to complain about .

    Absolutely everything! The scenery, wildlife, sunsets and seals! The fire pits are a great touch and add to the relaxed chilled out atmosphere. This campsite as a little piece of heaven and after returning home today i am already looking at dates to return. We were so sad to leave. I now have a new favourite place! We also never used the wifi so dont know if it was any good so no eating for that.

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 Campbelltown for regular boat trips to Ailsa Craig, Sanda Island and around the peninsula for wildlife and whale watching.

A fast 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 response was 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 Campbelltown. 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.
