This is a very well run campsite with clean facilities, conveniently sited for the ferry terminal and with great views over the bay. The pitches are a good size and there are plenty of good walks nearby.

Views from the pictures,speak for themselves. Staff we met from arriving, until we left, were nothing but friendly and welcoming. Loved the whole experience!! And you have the added bonus of watching the ferry coming on, right in front of you!! Thanks guys.

We arrived and a friendly lady helped us! Being surrounded by the shielded tent wasn't the cosiest place i've been! Nice views though. Rather have seen separated spaces for tents and shielded tents since they are more for groups and kept us awake for a couple of nights, which was very annoying! At 11 there is a curfew but after...

Sorry about the noise. We do our best, but it can be difficult. Pity too about the ticks. We would like to think you got them from somewhere with stock, and not from us. We certainly take ticks seriously.

We had a really warm welcome on arrival and got a great pitch next to sea. The facilities were excellent with clean, warm bathrooms, kitchen and all you need on a campsite including outdoor clothes/tent drying tents. Fantastic sea views. Had a pint in the cozy pub which is only a few minutes walk away. There is a great shop...

Myself and partner stayed for 1 night (thank goodness!) in budget beds at shielings. Both of us enjoy camping and didn't have particularly high expectations given the price we paid for our stay (£32 for the night), yet it was awful. We arrived on the last ferry across to the island and as such arrived outside of reception opening hours...

I am truly sorry that you were unhappy with your night with us. Our arrangements for late night reception seem to have broken down. You presumably did not notice the alternative of our mobile number alongside the walkie talkie? I will investigate at once what went wrong and how to prevent a recurrence. It will help if you would kindly...

Great location with magnificent views. Site absolutely immaculate with cleanliness throughout. Jo the warden was extremely friendly and most helpful. Unfortunately we did not get to use the site to its best due to the adverse weather but definitely highly recommend a visit.

We camped for 4 nights in June and had pre-booked a pitch in the top field. When we went to register and saw the pitch right at the shore it was no problem to change, the staff were very helpful. The Astroturf pitches meant a cleaner tent when packing up. Facilities were top notch, clean and well stocked. A perfect...
