Campsite info

The Laxdale caravan park, not quite what we were expecting and as the previous night had been heavy rain it was very damp under foot. The camping area is in a dip to the left of the access road. Hot and Cold showers and a camp kitchen with washing up facilities. Well laid out campsite but no vehicles allowed on the grass so everything has to be carried. Near to busy Stornoway for all your food Co-op and Tesco.

John & Jean's Hebridean Escape 2010


John & Jean Reynolds

OH WOW!!!  The best campsite in the world comes into view and it sure is!  It takes your breath away it is so stunning.  Showers £1 only down side is the caravans on the front are 10M apart with signs around saying leave 6M between pitches so you cant pitch between them.  But again the views are stunning and well worth a visit. £7 a night per large tent. The lady comes to find you to pay.

Traigh na Beinigh Cnip (Reef Beach)

This croft site on the east coast. What an amazing place to stayRun by John and Harvey.  It has a loch side setting with byer and converted black house for facilities better than home!  The byer with two toilets and free showers and the other with under-floor heating, peat fire and long dining table, ensuite bathroom what an amazing place to stay.  Free to camp anywhere but some areas slope down to the loch. Lovely breakfast of homemade bread and fresh eggs compliments of John & Harvey. £10 per person per night. Fantastic Site.

Lickisto Blackhouse Camping Harris

Moorcroft holidays North Uist

We spoke to someone in a camper van who suggested “Moorcroft” a new site.  As it was VERY wet we decided to stay in their “Bunkhouse” with a proper bed!!  Bunkhouse photos    £14 a night each.

Spent 2 nights camping at this lovely site free hot showers and camp kitchen with microwave and cooker. As well as washing machine and drier. Full disabled facilities. Chemical disposal point for passing camper vans available.  £7 per person per night for a large tent. Another great site.

Well run and good luck to them for the future.
