Well it is 13 miles from Oban, The nearest shop is 5 miles the Pink Shop and garage and along with No Phone reception and tv is Poor to say the least. The good side is the view and cycle track 78 the best I have seen it goes from Cambeltown to Fort William.The place is kept spotless by the wardens and are great, there is a bus on the hour and a Pub 2 miles one way and a café and pottery the other. Good base to travel enjoy.

Great site in a lovely location. Stayed for a week broke down on the way to next site, the owners were very helpful and accepted us back on site and also helped contact our next site. Will be visiting again.

We stayed one night on our way down to Argyll.

Very friendly staff, despite they told us exactly where and how to put our car and tent within a centimetre.

Overall everything is extremely clean: well mowed grass, toilet/shower block is so clean you could serenely have a surgery in there !

The main downside is that the place is surrounded by tall walls (like a walled garden), so there is not an inch of wind, so. Yes you guessed right, it is pretty midgy ! During the evening everyone is locked in their caravan/motorhome.

This site simply lacks some view on the surrounding landscape.

A lovely Site but with one huge drawback, the midges.

This has all the appearances of a high quality C & C Club Site, welcoming staff, excellent facilities and, especially, a beautiful setting in a walled garden. We stayed here one night before catching the ferry from Oban and, after 8 days, my wife still bore the scars of midge bites. While accepting there's nothing staff can do to prevent midges, anyone staying here needs to prepare - nets, spray anything.

We've rated it on the facilities and Site Team alone.

A characterful site tucked into a former walled garden. A circle of well spaced hardstandings around the edge leave a nice green open space in the middle, which is where the excellent facilities are. The site is immaculate (as most Camping Club sites are) and the managers are friendly and helpful. The only possible drawback is the green open space being mainly moss - after a day's rain it was like walking across a two inch deep wet sponge! Congratulations to the owners of the 4x4 campervan and speedboat in the corner, the only other person on site who kept to the 5mph speed limit.

What a great site, this was a last minute booking, and one of our better decisions. The site situated just off the A828, in a former Walled Garden.

The pitches are mostly hard standing, with loads of space between, the toilet block in center of the site is emmaculate, as is the site itself.

The site having full facilities of Club sites, the small on site shop has essentials, and if like me you forgot something the warden did opened up out of hours. The dog walk is in Sutherlannds Grove is great for both easy and more strenuous which are all sign posted. For cyclists the Oban to Fort William cycle path is just outside the site entrance, which runs mostly along the coast.

There is a larger shop in Benderloch, which sells caravan spares. Oban only about 20 mins away has everything, incl Supermarkets and petrol stations. This is a great place and we will be back.
