  • We found Gruinard Bay by chance on a drive through the Highlands. What a find it was. We spotted it from a hill and had to go for a closer look. There is a small car park area across the road from the...  more »
  • Stayed at the Gruinard bay caravan park, the location is excellent as the bay is beautiful, watching all the wildlife as the sun went down. The park its self is a little rustic shall we say, not parti...  more »
  • Amazing place to stretch your legs. Beautiful wide open views across to Gruinard Island from stunning beaches. Great to dig for cockles just off the point when the tide is out.  more »

  • Stayed one night in July 2017. Price was £20 including electric, which is reasonable value. We were allowed to choose our pitch from those available. The ten touring pitches all face out to sea and have a lovely view. Dogs have to be on leads on site, but can be let off on the beach in front. The facilities are kept scrupulously clean, but they are rather on the old side. Everything worked fine and the mens showers included a full bathroom as well. I got the impression the site may be under new management going by a previous review, and maybe they intend to do some renovations. The couple who run it seemed very pleasant. There are also a number of static caravans on site; some owned and some for holiday rental. Because of the small size, layout and location it's a very relaxing place to stay.
  • This place is horrific. All facilities are outdated; there has not been done any investment since the eighties so it seems. There were no other campers or caravans when we arrived but the owner would not let us choose a spot with a view because of the 'rules' and dedicated for motor home. We had to go to a tent spot located behind the permanent caravans..
  • In need of a renovation. For £11 for 1 tent one person you get a toilet block in an old prefab and a shower in a portaloo. Also £5 a day for wifi and the owner tried to charge me electric fee just to charge my phone. On balance much better places not far away.
  • No club house, facilities very dated when it rains there sames to retain surface water. But it is Scotland and it does rain
  • The owner Tony was very rude to my partner. The site is not dog friendly as it makes out. Fortunately for us we only stayed one night. It forced us to consider accommodation elsewhere and we chose to go to The sands holiday centre at Gareloch. It was excellent. Certainly family and Dog friendly. It has access to a beach just the same as Gruinard Bay has and is the same price. The sands set the standard and Gruinard bay falls behind. Gruinard also had a bad smell of Human waste halfway along the park towards the house. Avoid!
