Alan Rogers Review
Whilst not in the most scenic of locations, this good park is well placed for touring. Surrounded by trees, it is on the edge of Stornaway (ferry port) and is well laid out with a tarmac road running through the centre. A level area has 18 touring pitches, all with electricity hook-ups (10A), plus five for tents, and a grassy area (no electricity) for tents gently slopes away to the trees and boundary. There is a choice of rental accommodation on offer: caravans, wigwams, a lodge, a bungalow and a bunkhouse. The site is centrally situated in an ideal spot for touring the Isle of Lewis with easy access to all parts of the island.
The Butt of Lewis, the Callanish standing stones and the Black House Village are all within easy reach as well as many other attractions. Some parts have rocky coastal scenery but there are some lovely beaches around the island. The main road south leads to Harris passing through the mountainous area to the south of the Isle of Lewis. Ferries come into Stornoway from Ullapool and also Uig (Skye) to Tarbert (north Harris). Ferries to Berneray/North Uist go from Leverburgh in the south of Harris.
The well maintained and modern sanitary block is heated and raised above the hardstanding area. Access is via steps or a gravel path to the ramp. Good (but narrow) showers with dividing curtain (on payment). Well equipped laundry with washing machine, dryer, iron and board, sink and clothes line. Telephone. WiFi in reception (charged). Glamping style pods are available to rent.
