Sunnyside Croft Campsite on the West coast of Scotland
October 7, 2019
Finding a spot to camp along the coastal road in peak August and 26 degrees wasn’t the simplest of tasks as the beautiful coastline attracts a lot of wild campers. This meant all the beach side spots were full of tents, campervans and a haze of smoke from several beach BBQ’s.
There are plenty of campsites too along the road, our original aim was to spend the night at Camusdarach Campsite but it soon became clear that booking would have been advisable or arriving early in the day to get a spot.
Fortunately, Sunnyside Croft came to our rescue being the only campsite along the road that had spaces available. The coastal location and good facilities meant we were relieved to find a space. The campsite is in amongst two other sites, there’s plenty of hard standing pitches for campervans and caravans and grass areas for tents. A major plus point is a private path down to the beach for Sunnyside Croft residents only, great for an evening swim in the sea.
The campsite was slightly pricey at £30 a night for two people and a tent but we were happy to pay given how busy everywhere else was. There’s a clean and warm shower and toilet block that you’re given a key to, restricting access to campsite users only. There’s a covered area with picnic tables incase the Scottish weather lets you down. And there’s a freezer and a microwave for campers to use too.
