    My friend has a caravan and asked me to find out if anyone from here has been there and how good is the 14 mile single track rd to get there. Ive read a few of the reviews on ukcampsite but never saw any mentions to how good the road is. Have to say the place does sound very nice.

    Check the road on Google Earth .. looks very narrow

    but with a lot of statics on site it must be quite 'doable ' with a towed van

    as you say, it does look very nice..

    Yes we have stayed there. A friend has a permanent static on the site so we took our motorhome there in 2013. They also have a caravan which they have towed there.

    It is certainly remote but we thought it was wonderful. The road there is quite long and narrow but it is quiet and there are passing places. Take your time and you will have no trouble. As someone else said trucks get through with statics on them so a caravan will be OK.

    The owners are very friendly and the café does wonderful fish and chips!

    We have been for a few days when our daughter camped there.
    The views across to Islay and Jura are magnificent and it has a plesent enough beach. The road is OK for a MH as long as you don't meet anyone coming the other way but it's not a long road and plenty of room to see if anyone is coming the opposite way.
    We love the Kintyre peninsular as its so quiet and I'm sure many southerners don't know how beautiful it is because of the long drive to get there.
    You wont have any problems getting down the "main" road only the one into the camp site

    Did the circuit year before last and wild camped beside the beach. Fabulous area - road will be fine if taken nice and slow! ;) Dweezil's first holiday in the van - threw up 3 times by Perth but kept breakfast down on the single track the next day!:rolleyes:

    Its worth the drive. Its just like any other road - take it carefully. :)

    Interesting early carved crosses and memorials worth looking on the coast.

    The park is great. We camped by the shore and watched the otters....(y)
