First visit to this site which is in an excellent location a few mins drive 3 miles from Oban.

Aprox 7 taxi ride back from Oban to site.

Thought the facilities offered good value for money. Whilst on our particular visit we suffered from torrential rain the ground underfoot in the area reserved for tents remained reasonably firm.

As already mentioned in other reviews there tended to be a wait for the showers despite the fact that the field reserved for tents wasn't full. More showers needed.

Minor annoyances throughout our stay ie no hand soap in the wash basin soap machines in toilet block and the hand dryer wasn't wasn't working .Hot water tended to run out when using the allocated washing up sinks.

On balance I would recommend this site as its location is everything.

Lovely campsite, we stayed on the waters edge with a spectacular view of the islands. Oban is only a short taxi ride 6is in to town which is well worth a visit as there are lots of nice pubs and eateries. The onsite shop sells all sorts inc alcohol, the toilet block was cramped and the shower was small.

Lovely site; fantastic views; pick your own pitch; reasonably priced. Showers looked grim but were actually very good - loads of hot water and power!

Weather wasn't the best but really enjoyed a 3 day stay.

Friendly owners; good shop on site. Taxi from site to town very good value.

Went on the 3 island tour - Mull; Staff and Iona. Best value ever! 45 per person which sounds steep but that includes a coach trip across Mull and our driver knew so much about Mull it was unbelievable; a trip to Staffa and Fingal's Cave which is stunning and Iona - the ancient holy island. Weather was awful on the day we went but it was still a fantastic day out.

Oban has lots of pubs; places to eat and shops.

You can fish from the docks - caught mackeral.

If we went back to this area I would definitely be happy to stay on this site again and would recommend it to all.

Fantastic for views and a quiet and peaceful site. Facilities, as in other reviews, a bit limited, but I believe there are plans afoot to upgrade before the 2009 season. We stayed in the lower field with great views of the sea and a jetty where my son could go fishing.
Oban is great and we went out for a three hour fishing trip on a boat - available at the North pier. Try the fish and chips in Oban - best I ever had !

Stayed 3 nights. Beautiful views. The site was very hilly and which ever way we camped we were on a slant! toilets etc seemed to be permanently dirty although I saw cleaning staff in there every day.

Awful midge problem as so close to Lochs.

Near no where! The walk to Oban took about 50 mins. Lovely scenery to look at along the way but still a fair walk.

Oban is pretty and really the gateway to other islands.

Staff at site were helpful and would re-charge phones if asked. Shop was also full of basics. It rained heavily on the last two nights and days this was an issue as there was no where else to go near by and no shelter other than our poor wee tent.

Just returned from our second visit to this campsite. If you can put up with the short queue for the showers, which I didn't find a problem, this is a great campsite. It is situated in such a beautiful location. There are only a couple of swings for the kids to play on but there is a games room at the entrance to the site as well.

My own kids aged 13, 9 and 5 however, loved the hill in the middle of the site, for climbing and rolling down again and they made a few friends here.

We arrived late Saturday evening and just managed to get the last of the electric hook-ups.

We left mid Friday afternoon and it is worth noting, that the campsite had really emptied out quite a bit by this time, so if you are planning on a visit, this would be a great time to arrive, as you get to choose the location for your own pitch.

We included a boat trip to the Island of Staffa on our visit this year and I was really delighted to watch a Basking Shark swimming around the entrance to Fingals Cave. Amazing.

The site is very close to Oban and there are such a lot of things to do in the area, I highly recommend you visit.
