Date of Visit: August 2007 Unit:  Tent
Reviewer: Debra16 3 reviews from this member

Our family stayed here for almost a week. We were located in the ball park as there were no pitches left in the main field. This field had a beautiful view of the water side and was just a hop, skip and a jump from the reception block and shop. Ideal for us really as we have a twelve year old and a two year old.
The plus points for us were the site is only a few minutes drive from Oban centre and it was nice and quiet where we were pitched.
The down sides however outweigh the positives. The shop is only open a few hours a day and is badly stocked. The guy behind the counter is also a little grumpy. The two toilets near the shop are tiny and dirty and I did not feel comfortable taking my two year old there.
There is however a larger toilet block near the other pitches but they were still were still not that clean. The dish washing facility at the small block near us was filthy. The sink was covered in bird droppings (this will be because it is near the duck pond) and was never cleaned by the staff all the time we were there.
If you want a simple site with a fantastic view then it's for you. A tip would be to take your own water as the water provided is brown as it has peat in it.

Absolutely gorgeous site, wonderful views over the loch. Very friendly owners and a well maintained site. The only downfalls were the undersized shower facilities. Only three blocks for the entire site, which caused large queues each morning. Plenty of hot water though and free! The other downfall was the drinking water, although filtered by the site, then filtered again by our caravan, then again into a filter jug, it was still discoloured and formed a head. The water seemed to upset all our stomachs, but no lasting affects!
The approach road to the site is very narrow with passing places, which was ok for us, until we were leaving, when we encountered an inexperienced caravanner

Best site we have ever visited! The pictures don't do it justice! A beautiful location with superb views of Kerrera and the surrounding highlands. The campsite has such a relaxed attitude which makes it very easy to visit. The ultimate campsite in and around Oban!

Reviewer: JoeyJo 2 reviews from this member

We stayed here for one week whilst diving in and around Oban. The location is just out of the town which makes it ideal for people who require a bit of peace and quiet.
The static caravans were very clean and in good condition.
Site owners are very friendly and helpful.
Would recommend this site both to families and divers.

Reviewer: Patricia1960 1 review from this member

Decided to try this campsite after seeing the reviews. We were not disappointed a very well kept site, toilets and showers where in the process of being upgraded, very clean and plenty of hot water. The staff on the site were always around and very helpful. Children's play area was very small only a couple of swings but the duck pond is lovely with the ducks coming around the tent which our 4 year old enjoyed feeding. The sun was shining on the Friday we arrived but by the Saturday night we had gales our tent survived with a little damage a couple of tents were not so lucky, we had chosen the highest point on the site for the beautiful views, the bottom of the park is a bit more sheltered. Shop doesn't open till end of May so make sure you are stocked up.  The journey to Oban from the site is a single track road but plenty of passing places. Would definitely return would like to try some of the cruises from Oban harbour.

Stayed at this site twice and both times have been great. 
The staff are all friendly and the site which is well maintained has a relaxed feel.
There's a play park for the kids but they seemed more interested in the hill which is situated at the top of the tent area!  The duck pond also went down extremely well! 
The toilet/shower block could do with an upgrade but overall it was kept clean.
Lots of walks and plenty to do along with stunning views, makes it a great location for exploring Oban.
