Looks lovely on the pictures on the website- very spacious- but in reality it felt very crowded. Nice owners. Spotlessly clean facilities. But cramped for the number of tents, motorhomes etc. Noisy too. Dogs barking in the middle of the night. Other noisy campers kept us awake. Wouldn't return.

Hi Happy Camper,

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on our site, we really appreciate it.

We are so sorry to hear that you felt your stay did not match your expectations, based on any photos you had seen.
Our pitches are planned to provide guests with maximum room as no one deserves to feel cramped on their holidays, so we are disappointed to hear that this was your experience. At the end of each camping season we put our thinking caps on to help make next year better than before, so this feedback will be considered.

In terms of noise levels, our campsite operates a strict low noise policy between the hours of 10pm and 7am. As dog owners ourselves we understand that sometimes they are a little bit naughty and often terrible at following rules, so on behalf of their owners, we apologise for any barking.
With regards to other campers, in future please do contact the out of hours phone of the campsite you’re staying at to report any issues, so that the team can do their best to resolve these quickly and quietly.

We are sorry to hear you won’t be returning to us, but we do hope that you will visit our beautiful island again.

Our best wishes,

Salen Bay Campsite

We absolutely loved this site!! Really friendly and helpful. In a stunning position overlooking the Loch with a great coastal walk off the site through rock pools, ferns, grasses and heather. Perfect for dogs. We visited in our MoHo but there was a variety of tents, caravans and…….a tractor! They all had large pitches. The actual site is superbly equipped with loos, showers (on a speedy timer), washing machine/dryer, wet weather room which had charging points for phones etc

Great campsite in a wonderful location by the sea. Lovely walks from the site and a short walk to the well stocked Spar shop in the village. Shower blocks were clean and warm and pitches were spacious. Staff were very helpful and friendly.

What a wonderful place!!
Just come back from having spent 8 nights at the wonderful site. From the minute we arrived and met the Owner Fergus and his daughter Iona it was great. very friendly, nothing too much trouble, everything explained clearly. Our pitch was fantastic !! a view to die for looking across the 'sound' to the mainland. We didnt turn our television on once whilst we were there, as each night we sat and watched the sea and the views.
There are some amazing walks directly from the campsite, and every evening after our dinner we walked the 'shore' walk ( owned by the site) we saw numerous sea birds and witnessed an Otter swimming and feeding near the Pier. We even braved the waters of the Loch to swim- it was FREEZING- but exhilarating ..
We cannot praise this site highly enough, the facilities were kept beautifully clean, there is a washing machine and tumble if you need to use it, they even provide a washing line if you want to wash out and hang your own clothes on it- which we did many times. The toilets are spotless, and although we didnt use their showers, I could see they were also spotlessly clean.. Absolutely the best holiday we could have hope for- Thank you all!! we will be back .. Ray and Pippa xx
