Catherine could not have been more helpful, when I phoned to book or when I shortened my booking when I arrived onsite. The views from the site are marvellous and there are many lovely walks and drives on the doorstep. It is in a really good position, especially if arriving on the evening sailing from Uig, Skye. It is a relatively short drive from the ferry terminal but mainly on a single track road. On reaching Drinishader , keep a check on your milage and when coming over the brow of the hill you will see water on the RHS and the gate into Minchview is quite a sharp turn at the bottom of the hill to the LHS. I missed the entrance and had great fun doing a 3 +++++.point turn with folding caravan attached in a double passing place about a mile further down the road. The facilities were rustic, the solid wooden doors to the toilets are open to the elements and the elements are winning the battle. There are lights in the toilets but they are not really needed, enough daylight gets in through the doors. The toilets were clean and had plenty of supplies in them, the only thing that really matters to me. Shower basin was clean and water was warm, the shower curtains could do with replacing though, the curtains had more mildew than curtain. If you need a one night stopover close to the Ferry then this would be an ideal site, not a five star campsite but has good enough amenities for a night or a couple of nights and is a great place to stop if you are self contained with an electric hook up. I will use this site again as a stopover close to the ferry.…
I stayed at this site out of need rather than want, as needed some facilities after 3 nights wild camping. These facilities are disgusting. Two toilets which haven't been cleaned in ages, one shower which was disgusting, but at least hot water. A washing up area with a out of order washing machine. I was met my an elderly lady. Her house smelt of stale cigarette smoke and there was a half moth eaten Stag's head in the porch. I was charged £20 for one night, horrendously expensive for the quality of the facilities. It is embarassing this site is affiliated with the Camping and Caravanning Club, it should be shut down. Disgusting.
This camp site should be closed down as the facilities are very basic, unclean, run down and decrepit. The hot water in the toilets has no pressure so runs at a trickle. The site is basically just a car park on a very boggy small field and the electric hook up is on a post for everyone to use. No broadband either provided. The owner is very elderly and unpleasant in manner. Its certainly not cheap either, charging TWENTY pounds a night for 2 people in a campervan!!
I agree with most people, the facilities are dreadful- mouldy shower curtains, couldn’t adjust shower to right temperature (too hot or too cold), chemical toilet disposable a joke (probably ecologically unsafe), everyone crowded together. Have stayed in 12 places on Western Isles - this was in a league of its own for dreadfulness AND the most expensive. Someone in tourism should see it and issue a warning or close it down. The few people who gave it 5 stars are totally deluded. Perhaps they didn’t stay at same place
Good views. Very small hard standing area to park up on, it looks very much like a car park. Showers and toilets very rustic and basic. Area is next to moorland so midges in high numbers. The lady owner owner did explain local walks. It was the most expensive campsite (4-5star prices 1star facilites) i have stayed on this year with the worst facilities. the owner needs to charge a lot less for the facilities on offer, then it might feel a bit better
