Booked two Tent pitches for a week with electric hook up at Invercoe taking my daughter and boyfriend on their first real camping holiday together and it was excellent. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Arrived late afternoon and once checked in at the 'shop' we were met by the owner and shown to our pitches. Advised in which situ it would be good for the position of our tents and said to just get ourselves set up and pay tomorrow then moved on. This was helpful.

We had a tunnel tent (Icarus 500) with canopy and although the pitches are roomy, it was a tricky bit of positioning to run the two tents together. We got a bench and table in between the pitches eventually which was great and we were quickly enjoying the views of the Loch and having a walk around.

Absolutely stunning scenery and always changing too as the weather changes. The midge was en masse and thankfully we had some head nets with us. Not many nights were spent sitting out at sunset I might add.

Looking out of the tent had us seeing the beautiful, if not eery Pap of Glencoe when the clouds were high enough.

Facilities were good and hot water always available in the shower and dishwashing blocks. There were no real queues for the showers and maybe we were lucky in that we'd tried to avoid peak times, ie 7.30-10am and 7.30-9.30pm. There is one hairdryer in the Ladies and felt that this could've been better if another one installed.

The facilities were cleaned and toilet paper etc re stocked daily and if there's improvements to note it is that the gents toilets could've been cleaner. I think this is more down to the user and not the campsite. My partner and son frequently commented on the mess being left by others and lack of the likely few not tidying up after them in the loos. The cleaning above cubicle height was sparce and the cobwebs and dirty grouting confirmed this and this was both in the gents/ladies.

The dishwashing area was kept really nice and there were plugs provided for each sink and also dish drainers available. Lots of room and with windows in the 'block' it made washing dishes rather pleasurable as you viewed the 'Pap' on one side and Loch Leven on the other!

All staff on site were friendly and welcoming and nothing seemed to be too much bother and the shop when open (8-10 and 3-5)was a busy place. I saw campers taking their phone and charger in there to be charged up and at no cost - this is handy to note if we were hillwalking and not taking the full on camping kit plus 'the kitchen sink'. The small things like that really make a difference.

The owner regularly went around the site to check how everyone was and as he was visible this made for a peaceful stay. We never used the washer dryer facilities during out stay but had visited there to look at what coins it took (50p for 10 mins) and there is a series of tourist booklets in there for you to look through.

Loch Leven is tidal and so it's great for kids (and adult kids alike) looking over the rocks for crabs and the like. I wish we'd taken our Kayaks as the Loch was ideal for this - unless the wind was up it was like a mill pond. Using the slipway would be easy even for a boat, plenty of room and not too long.

We left Invercoe site all saying that we need to come back again. Lots to do around here, the Glencoe Hotel was very reasonably priced for a meal, excellent rib eye steak, fish and chips etc if you don't fancy cooking. It was a nice place to have on your doorstep even for popping in for a pint after a climb up the 'Devil's Staircase and walk to Kinlochleven.

Although the site has idyillic views and is in an excellent location, the lack of public transport in the area was frustrating. A visit to the Nevis Range just beyond Fort William is recommended for mountain biking or a trip up the Gondola.

We stayed here for 7 nights, 2 adults, 1 dog. We had a great time and would definitely return. The scenery is absolutely fantastic. The campsite is situated on the edge of Loch Leven with views to die for! Facilities were good.

The mensí shower block looks as though itís recently been refurbished. The ladies were a little dated. Showers were hot but not very powerful. We never had to queue for the showers. Plenty of toilets but perhaps could be cleaned more frequently.

Wash up area was adequate & undercover. Owners were very friendly & helpful. The campsite did get quite busy over the weekend and felt a little cramped. We returned one evening to find a tent pitched just 3 feet from ours.

Thereís a small shop on site which sold the main essentials. Thereís a shop in the village within walking distance and also a Co-op at Kinlochleven, 7 miles away. Glencoe Hotel in the village is dog friendly.

Location is ideal with plenty to see and do in the area. Tourist Information is approx 2 miles away. Fort William was only 15 miles away. We also visited Ben Nevis range. Be warned - the midges are fierce and will eat you alive! But don't let that put you off.

We arrived after an amazing drive through the valley and was told to choose our own pitch. The views over the loch and the sunset over the mountains were stunning.

The site looks well maintained and the showers and toilets were always clean if a little dated. Good shop on site selling th basics and the staff very friendly. Enjoyed a walk around the village and the local area. Had dinner in the local hotel which was good but the staff were miserable looking.

Great site made better by it's location

Busy site, quite close together pitches. Beautiful location right on loch, now with own slipway. Toilets/showers adequate, always busy, therefore not always clean. On a bus route to Fort William. If Camping has an excellent covered cooking area. Midge machines seemed to work. Good level hard standing pitches. If you want the best view of the loch ask to go down on the area near the slipway, which is through the little gateway as you go towards loch front.

Spent one night at this site, and it was a highlight of a week round Scotland. The site is clean and the owners couldn't be more helpful.

We arrived while to shop and reception were shut, but the owner arrived as we read the sign and we were directed to a brilliant pitch with stunning views, and given excellent advice regarding the wind for positioning the tent. Our tent pole broke and the owner lent us a spare which saved our trip!

The facilities are clean, and plenty of showers and hot water. The hairdryers are 20p for a few minutes, and not very powerful, I needed 60p to get reasonably dry hair.

The midgies are fierce, even with the midgie machines, so would recommend strong repellent. The site was also very dog friendly, no problem at all to take my small dog.

There is lots to do in the area, and we wished we were staying longer than the one night.

Fantastic site, toilet block always clean and well sized, shop competatively priced and well stocked, staff extremely helpful and friendly. Quiet site, curfew kept to and pitches flat and well spaced out. Covered bbq area with gas bbq's supplied fantastic for unsettled weather. Plenty for the kids to do with nice playground, plenty of space for them to play and clean, safe pebble beach for paddling and collecting shells. Would recommend and will definitely be using again.
