Fantastic location, well-maintained pitches, friendly owners.28/06/2018

    Back to nature camping experience...but with facilities! Lovely private corner at far west end of campsite, which is a secure, fenced-off field behind the owners' house. The grass is well maintained with areas left wild for shelter and wildlife, and the natural rocky outcrops provide several private and less exposed areas. We (myself and elderly mother) felt very safe during our 4 night stay, leaving items padlocked in tent during long days out. The site was relatively quiet at early June but no electric hook-ups and resident cars only on the island, attract a decent type (?) of camper.
    Facilities were more than expected, i.e. there was NO NEED for us to take so much! Within the camping area is a small toilet block with 2 shower rooms and a 3rd middle toilet. Both shower rooms have electric showers and hand dryers, electric shaver sockets, toilet paper, loo brush and wooden duck board, but N.B. there are no shower screens or curtains so I do recommend taking a cloth or sponge to clean down afterwards and leave the space as you would want to find it.There is also an outdoor stainless steel sink with hot and cold water plumbed in directly behind the toilet block.
    Outwith the field and close to the gate, is a brick built garage which acts as a kitchen diner with kettle, microwave, toaster, fridge, 3 seat dining table, 2 seat sofa, crockery, cutlery, pots and pans and a vending machine with crisps, juice, water and Mug Shot pastas if you feel the need. The island Spar shop is close to the pier, approx 20 minute walk away and closes at 5pm daily. There was also a camping gas stove in a rather muddy case so not sure if it was part of the official supplies or left by a camper, but there were matches and gas in the canister as well as a 4 person set of camp pots (in addition to the other pots and pans). Again, I do recommend taking your own dish washing supplies (sponge, drying cloth, washing liquid and perhaps surface cleaner) as those left when we arrived were not exactly hygienic! Fortunately we had our own but the owner did replace the dish towel when we mentioned it. The owner was lovely and very helpful but when I enquired re hire costs of tents, etc with a view to future return with friends, sadly they have decided to stop this facility as the cost of replacements outstripped any profits.
    In terms of location, sited in the opposite direction to popular destinations such as the abbey and North beaches, means the campsite is relatively quiet, enhanced by the fact that it sits well in from the road, behind the owners' house. We already knew the location from a previous day trip to St Columba's Bay at the south end of the island and couldn't wait to return and camp there. It makes for a good starting point for a trip to the south end but is also a very pleasant walk from the North beaches on a glorious night. Don't forget that you also have the Bay at the Back of the Ocean within short reach as well as a much admired secluded beach not much further on....or you could head back to the east side and the relatively quiet beach with views to the Ross of Mull - turquoise waters and pink granite! You will be quite spoilt actually!

    amazing views, clean toilets and showers, kitchen space, friendly host Zoe.
    Peaceful, relaxed, no nonsense, benches and barbeque provided.

    Disliked: 

    Perhaps a bit on steep side for fairly basic site... but I wouldn't want it any more developed. Gas cooker in the kitch might be a good addition though...

    Work getting down on the house at 8 in the morning. We were up anyway but think group next to us got a surprise. So bear in mind you are on an island and life always starts early!
