We stayed here in June 2012 for 12 days and couldn't fault it.
For a tent pitch with 2 adults and 4 kids (one under 5yrs), it was quite cheap.
Toilet and shower blocks were clean and tidy (although most showers are push button, there is a large shower cubicle for disabled people/ parent and child, which has a 'tap'-type shower). There is also a hairdryer and hair straighteners at 50p for 5mins! The adventure playground had maintenance done while we were there and the bins were emptied regularly.
At night we could hear cuckoos and the beautiful beach was just over the dunes from our tent, which we made full use of, as it only rained properly once during our stay!
The dishwashing room also has a cooking area with coin operated hob and microwave if it's bad weather etc. Washing machines are £3 a time and are in the Laundry block nearer the caravan area. The campsite shop sells all you could really need in terms of food and camping equipment, and also books, toys, wetsuits and ice creams!
In Gairloch itself there is a chip shop and a Chinese takeaway if you're having a non-cooking night!
We were really pleased with our stay at Sands and the surrounding area is obviously beautiful, with plenty of opportunity for good walks and outdoor activities.
This evaluation has been obtained by our inspector from a questionnaire at the camp site.
