    Amazing place to spend a night, it’s great that people have put these facilities together for campers! It says on the door that the toilets/showers are open Monday - Saturday 8am - 8pm. I’m guessing if you come on a Sunday you might not be lucky with a shower! The shower wasn’t the most powerful and difficult to get the right temperature but it doesn’t matter when you have that view!

  • 5/5

    Simply amazing park up, very reasonable prices and great facilities. Best views and lovely beach with crystal clear sea.

  • 5/5

    Stunning park up - right on the beach. No EHU, but clean toilets(free) and showers (£1for 3 mins). We paid £10 for the night parking - 6pm until 10am and you can pay additional if you wish - seems to be about £1 for 2 hours. Great walk from the back of the site to Cravadale beach, which is stunning - took us about 45 mins each way and a bit boggy and hilly, but so worth it.

  • 5/5

    great place, pay with card at machine, £15 a night for motorhomes but didn't have to pay for chemical disposal, didn't see any electric hook ups!

  • 5/5

    Excellent spot. Came in a demountable camper to stay for the afternoon and overnight. No EHU. Great showers, toilets, communal indoor seating and vending machines - open until 8pm. Great beach for swimming. Other walks in the area. Road is tricky; take it slow but worth it. Card payment for parking makes everything easier. Vending mach coins only and don’t give change … paid £2.40 for a Snickers!!

  • 5/5

    Best camping site we’ve ever stayed. Arrived around 7pm on a Tuesday & there were plenty of spots, both with electric (first lot on right) and non-electric (another minute down the road, next to the amenities building). £10 fee to maintain the beauty & cleanliness. Plenty of room for 10-ish vans in non-electric area.

  • 5/5

    Great spot! The drive there was a bit tricky but worth it. Shower and toilet amenities were just what we needed. We went mid-August and it wasn’t too crowded.

  • 5/5

    we had a lovely stay, £10 from 18.00-10.00 lots of spaces for other campers, 1 carpark flat the other had a slight incline, 30 seconds from the beach, amenities are 5stars, worth every donation. gets busy

  • 5/5

    Magnifique endroit parfait

  • 5/5

    What a place, just beautiful. Hardstanding carpark with overnight parking. £15 for the day and night via the ticket machine or honest box if machine broken. Showers (2) cost £1 for 3mins. Clean Water free. chemical toilet (green only) £3. It also has a visitors room you can sit in. Nice walk to beach over the cliff tops not recommended if wet weather. Can get busy during the day with day visits.

  • 5/5

    Beautiful spot - road in very tricky but well worth the effort. Facilities best we have encountered and well worth the community charge requested of £10. Loved this site please pay requested fee to keep facility open.

  • 4/5

    Beautiful spot, great beaches and a fantastic walk from the car park. Facilities were good. Not particularly flat!!

  • 5/5

    Der stellplatz ist super und es passen deutlich mehr als 5 Campervans, eher 20. War in Juni 2023 gut gefüllt. Die Straße dahin ist eine Herausforderung. Mit einem 6m Campervan kein Peoblem, größer 6,4m würde ich’s mir überlegen. Die Duschen kosten 1 Pfund für 3 Mini

  • 5/5

    Wir waren am 28.05.2023 mit 4 weiteren Wohnmobilen an diesem wunderschönen Ort. Toller Freistehplatz mit Honnesty Box. 10 £ sollte wirklich jeder zahlen. Auch wenn wir die Duschen nicht genutzt haben wirkten diese auch sehr sauber.

  • 5/5

    A perfect spot for the night. The road to it is pretty hairy and takes a while due to the single track but the spot is well worth it in my opinion. A great centre with toilet and shower facilities, you can also empty your chemical toilet, both are chargeable. The area inside closes by 8pm but still 1 communal toilet accessible from outside. electric pitches also available. £12 for the night no EHU

  • 5/5

    Great facility. Nice toilets and showers (£1/3 min).

  • 5/5

    Finally, a facility up to the standards! Well done Isle of Harris!

  • 5/5

    Visited Thursday 4/5/23 absolutely stunning bay Paid £10 for the overnight parking. Machine takes coins and contactless. Toilets and showers were modern and clean. £1 for 3 minutes in shower. I believe it only takes £1 coins. I didn’t have any change but a group of Scottish gentlemen donated a few quid (girlfriend happy she could wash her hair)

  • 5/5

    Man benötigt BARGELD, um die Campingtoilette zu leeren. Ohne Münzen ist man aufgeschmissen.

  • 5/5

    Fantastic park up, £10 1800-1000. showers and toilets as well as a vending machine in an indoor picnic area. Showers £1/3 mins, indoor facilities open 8-8 (Ignore current signage that reads shut 1900-2030 for cleaning and reopens at 2030… caught us out). One toilet 24hr.

  • 5/5

    Great spot, about 10-15 parking spots right by the beach. Ticket machine £10/night £5/day, can pay by card. Toilets (24/7), showers (£1/3 minutes, close 7pm), large bins, and an indoor picnic area with a vending machine. Please respect the wishes of the locals and park here, some vans had parked just outside the area (past a private land sign) - this risks access for everybody.

  • 5/5

    5 motor home spots, 10 smaller van spots. £5/day, £10/night. Water, CDP, showers and toilets available. Lovely beach and great walk over the hills

  • 5/5

    Literally stunning! Beautiful beach right outside the door and the best community facilities I’ve seen! Parking is now on card at a meter but only £10 per night which is an absolute bargain. Better than a lot of campsites!

  • 4/5

    Wunderschöner Strand und einige Parkplätze, die wir etwas teuer fanden. Es sind auch Duschen und WCs vorhanden. Klare Empfehlungen, alleine schon wegen dem Strand.

  • 4/5

    Sehr schöner Platz am „Ende der Welt“. Entsorgungsmöglichkeit für WC, genug Münzen mitnehmen. Kleiner aber schöner Sandstrand. Wandermöglichkeit.

  • 5/5

    perfect place for an overnight, Good showers and toilets, no mobile signal on either ee or tesco mobile. remember to take £1 coins for showers

  • 4/5

    Nice place to stay, not as nice at Kneep beach but still an easy walk to the beach which seemed popular with locals. Great facilities with showers, toilets and a lovely room to eat in, overlooking the bay. Overnight for Vans is now £10 from 6pm to 10am and showers are £1 for 3 minutes. Didn’t use the other facilities. Great nights sleep but the cattle grid can be noisy when traffic passes.

  • 5/5

    Amazing spot!! Long single track road to get here but it’s well worth it. Showers £1 & communal room open 8am-8pm. Beach is stunning & hopefully will return one day

  • 5/5

    Long single track road to get here, but it is worth it! There is a house with very clean showers, toilets, and a kind of sitting room with tables, seats and big windows overlookink the beach. Please make sure you pay the donation they ask for...but there are already meters that will probably be in use soon.

  • 5/5

    Great spot to spend the night. amazing beach! good hot showers. £1 for 3 mins. fresh water by a tap and cdp. recommended £10 donation either by text or honesty box. looking forward to staying here again!

  • 5/5

    What a stunning spot. Car park overlooking the most beautiful beach. Good showers (payable by coins) and donation box in the car park. There was one toilet that was open 24/7 and the showers/toilets were open roughly 8am - 8pm. You can also pay to dispose of chemical waste. The road down to this spot has the most amazing views and lots of highland cows around.

  • 5/5

    Awesome spot! Sheltered, great view, spanking clean showers and toilets. Still donation based, 10 Pounds suggested, well worth it! 1 Pound for 3min shower, it beeps after 2min so you know how much time is left. The single track road is narrow and winding, wouldn't come down here with a large vehicle.

  • 4/5

    24/7 outdoor public toilet that looks clean but does smell a bit. There’s a water tap that we assume is for drinking but not sure, and then £3 to use the chemical disposal. There’s an indoor clean area that’s supposed to be open Monday-Saturday 8am - 8pm that has hot showers (coin operated) and two toilets and an inside eating area - all very clean. Only downside is that they don’t appear to stick to the opening times.

  • 5/5

    Beautiful spot to stay the night with brilliant facilities £10 a night £1 showers currently donations BUT TODAY (30/06/2022) the North Harris trust have concreted in bases for fitting parking meters. We have stayed here 3 nights this week and I can't say I've heard a coin drop in the donation boxes. we gift aided ours in the envelopes. why can't people just donate and stop spoiling it?!!!!

  • 5/5

    Stunning location next to wonderful beach. Road to it is beautiful but precarious, took us an hour driving carefully - but still loosened fillings! Access to car park is narrow and at angle so entry awkward because car park is tight. £10 donation, services £3. Able sit outside for 1st time in 2 weeks, planned stay 2 nights but, yet again, storm next morning so moved on. Still one of best stays.

  • 5/5

    We stayed here overnight, lovely place, we were greeted by the highland cows coming down to the carpark. Facilities close at 8pm and not open on a Sunday. On the journey in you can stop at the honesty shop at the manor and purchase local venison and honey as well as a few snacks.

  • 5/5

    Great view, amazing facilities and clean. But everything works with 1 £ Coins only, so make sure to have enough with you.

  • 5/5

    Stayed for one night, really nice place with showers and toilets, crazy wind when we turned up but the beach is great, post box down by the houses.

  • 5/5

    Absolutely beautiful spot and amazing facilities. Beach was great for bodyboarding too. Showers were £1 for 3 mins and were nice and clean. CamperVans were parked in quite close proximity to each other but was still quiet and felt very safe

  • 5/5

    It’s worth the narrow road to get here. Plenty of room. Facilities: separate recycling bins, drinking water, waste disposal, ‘common room’ which has amazing views over the bay of you’re wanting time out of the van, two showers (one large enough for disables access) and three toilet cubicles. All exceptionally clean. Donation envelopes/postbox in the building, or you can text (details on the notice) if you don’t have cash. If we didn’t have somewhere to be, we would have spent several nights here. The walk to see the highland cows and fluffy calf’s was happy bonus! Stopped over 30.09.21.

  • 5/5

    This park up is perfection! Small car park overlooking a beautiful beach and has toilet/shower facilities, bins and waste disposal. Gorgeous view! £10 donation for overnight stay is so worth it, pay £1 for 3 mins shower. We are on EE and had phone service.

  • 5/5

    Fantastic location, right by the beach! Good showers and toilets. No phone signal on 3 (some on EE). Small so get there early

  • 5/5

    Amazing spot, busy so get down early! EHU 5 mins up the road. Honesty box. No signal. The beach is amazing. Gets busy with paddle boarders etc in the morning.

  • 5/5

    What a place. About 40 mins along a single track road but so worth it. This is a community type site (works on donation/honesty box), toilets and showers super clean (£1 for 3 minutes). Seemingly there were dolphins in the bay the night before we arrived but didn’t see any when we were there.

  • 5/5

    Fantastic place! Small can be busy

  • 5/5

    Really great facilities. £1 to shower, chemical waste disposal and water ect. Electric just 5 mins up the road. Beautiful beach, a windy 10mile road but worth it if course.

  • 5/5

    What a place, gorgeous beach with toilets and shower facilities. I wish England would take this option. Well done West Harris Trust. We stayed for two nights and you make a donation. Please be generous with your donations as this is a fantastic facility….

  • 5/5

    À absolutely stunning place to send the night. Toilets, showers for £1 and plenty of space to park a campervan. It was quite busy when we got there though. Highly recommend !!

  • 5/5

    Best faculties I’ve ever seen!

  • 5/5

    Fantastic location with beach views and highland cows nearby, cattle grids in camping area. Its a busy spot so you need to get there early to get a space especially if you have a motorhome. I would highly recommend.

  • 5/5

    There is CDP for £3 but the showers and toilet facilities are closed for 2020 season due to covid.

  • 5/5

    Was recommended this spot by a local farmer and it didn’t disappoint! There electric hookup, nearby toilet, chemical waste and water. They ask for a donation of £15 if you stay there to support the project and local community. We had no cash but we’re able to pay via PayPal on their website.

  • 5/5

    Sehr schön top ausgestattet, Kein Preis Spende an den Trust ist Ehrensache!

  • 4/5

    What a spot! The beach here is beautiful, we even saw seals in the morning. This set up is a small car park, fenced off from the main (but extremely quiet) road. A little less wild than some other spots, but perfect if you’re after some facilities for the night. There is a beautiful new building on site, with a seating area, toilets and hot showers (£1 for 3x mins, spotless when we visited)- this is locked at night, but there is a separate toilet open throughout. Also available are bins, chemical waste (for a small charge), and water fill up. Up the road there is a separate spot with electric hook up available for a charge, which we didn’t use. One other camper with us overnight, but space for approx 6. £10 payable in an honesty box- well worth every penny.

  • 5/5

    Schöner Platz! Saubere Toiletten und Duschen! 10 Pfund wert. Sehr zu empfehlen trotz langer und abenteuerlicher Anreise

  • 5/5

    Amazing spot. Both car parks available to use during lower season. Immaculate showers & toilets. Main block closed about 8:30pm but toilet available during night. Snack van opened around 10am. Suggested donation £10 a night.

  • 5/5

    Beautiful place and fantastic facilities. more than worth the suggested £10 donation.

  • 5/5

    Highlight of our camper trip to Lewis/Harris! Beautiful drive out to Huisinis, and the settlement itself is very picturesque with a stunning wee beach. The new facilities that have been built here by the North Harris Trust are excellent - lovely, warm wooden building with seating and view to beach, very clean toilets and showers, and £1/3 minutes for reasonable heat and pressure. Flat spaces to park the van, and a bonus burger van too open 9-6 Mon-Sat (the beef burgers were tasty!). They suggest a donation of £10/camper to park here which seems very reasonable.

  • 5/5

    Well worth the winding road trek! Re-invested by the local trust in 2017 - the new visitors center is best we've seen for such an out-the-way place - was even a food van. The small side beaches feel like you've visited a pacific island. Large vans should really stay away from the visitors center part but there is a provision for larger vans 0.5mile before the area, complete with hookup.

  • 5/5

    Great location on huisinis beach, showers £1, water and toilets. suggested donation of £10 per night for campervans

  • 5/5

    ⚠️ATTENTION PAS DE CAMPING-CAR AU DELÀ 5 m⚠️ j’ai eu tout le mal du monde à faire un demi tour avec mon 7,5m. Mais le panorama est magnifique

  • 3/5

    Long drive down a busy windy narrow road.well equipped with toilets ,showers.lovely place but v.cramped.

  • 5/5

    Beautiful site. Ten miles of long narrow steep and twisty single track, but worth the drive.

  • 5/5

    This spot is great. Practically on the sea front with clean modern showers and toilets!
