Just back from Sands Holiday Centre near Gairloch and OH MY GOD what an amazing place! Thank you so much to anyone that recommended it to me, it is well worth the horrendously long drive.

The campsite is fantastic and I am not a 'beach person' but had a wee tear in my eye when I took one last look at Big Sands.

Beautiful place smile.

It is amazing! For us "only" a 4 hour drive from Glasgow but worth every minute.

Glad you had a good time.

envy at young only being 4 hours away, it's 10 for us.

Very envy.

That whole area is stunning. Did you go to Red Sand? Flowerdale Falls? Badachro? the Lighthouse? I worked in Gairloch for a whole summer when I was a student and it was fab. (well, apart from the midgies sad)

I was about to say didn't the midwges drive you mad.

midges weren't too bad. you generally get some sort of breeze off the sea.

Wiggle - yep we did Red Sand but the flies drove us to distraction there!Gorgeous beach though. We went through Badacro (so pretty) and to the lighthouse.

I heart Big Sands, and that view when you walk between the huge dunes and see the beach...

I want to go again now!

We were in one of their statics this time but we'll definitely return with the tent.
