As others have already said, I don't want to make this site too publicly known. This is so that we ourselves can be assured of a pitch next time! But, that is just not fair to the site owners, who go away above and beyond the call of duty in an effort to make you enjoy your stay.
The site is ideally located near the Argyll/Highland border, and this makes it an ideal spot for touring this beautiful part of Scotland, with both Oban and Fort William around half an hour away. And Glencoe is just around the corner, too. For keen cyclists, NCN Route 78 s right on the doorstep, so it couldn't be handier.
When we visited, it was off season, so very quiet. But this was ideal for us, as we enjoyed the perfect peace!
The owners make you feel very welcome, and they are full of knowledge of what to see and do in the area.
There is the benefit of some high speed wifi for free, and all the basic amenities you would hope for at a small site such as this.
Overall, this place is highly recommended, and we will definitely be back!
Lovely small campsite taken care of by a lovely couple. We took a Gipsy caravan - mostly for the fun of staying in a unique accommodation - it is very basic, no heating or electricity inside. But it had a lovely fireplace next to it (fires allowed in designated fireplaces) with a kettle, plenty of chopped wood and a great outdoor kitchenette with BBQ available for use.
Showers/toilet block small (2 showers only - but enough for the size of the campsite) but clean, big sinks outside to wash. Nice calm area, some good walks around and strategically convenient for exploring the area. Close to the main (but quiet) road so easy to spot. Satnav gives wrong address, make sure you read the road signs. We had a cup of tea with the owners - and they are lovely people, directed us to places worth visiting and took care of us thoroughly.
We stopped only for one night but then came back at the end of our stay in highlands for the last night before the drive back to south of England. Would definitely recommend and plan to visit them again in the future. Cannot specify on child friendliness as have none myself, but imagine would be pretty high as there is a nice playground just across the road.
I could mention the lovely views, helpful owners, spacious pitches, excellent and spotlessly clean facilities, cycle tracks, walks, log fires and the good weather but that would mean that I might not secure a pitch the next time!
This is a lovely site but when full, toilet facilities might be a challenge!
This would not stop us visiting though. Soooo good not to have to pitch in a regimented fashion. Free wifi is a bonus. 5 star!
I really want to keep this place a secret, but that would be unjust to Carol and Graham who are lovely people who really care about their campsite. The site is a fabulous little gem, clean & quiet in a gorgeous location.
There are toilets, showers & handbasin, one each male & female, in the same block, kept lovely and clean, outside are two undercover washing up sinks with lots of hot water.
The cookhouse shelter is for the use of the gypsy wagons, but there is an awning attached to the back to provide shelter for campers in wet weather.
The camping field itself is uneven and slopes with rocky parts, finding a flat enough area for a large tent proved a challenge, but well worth it we thought.
Fires are allowed and each pitch is provided with a stone circle and there is plentiful firewood, but please folks supervise your children with axes, we saw some pretty scary sights once or twice.
We hoped the fires would be fairly helpful keeping the midgies at bay, of which there are lots and lots, but unfortunately not, we were plagued by them, however this of course is to be expected in this area and it wouldn't put us off.
There are no ball games allowed on site but there is a sports field across the main road, also there is a cycle track running along the back of the site.
The nearest shop is in Ballachulish roughly 7 miles away, but the site may be starting to sell basics in the future.
Stayed for a week at Easter at this fantastic small site about 10 miles south of Fort William making a great base to explore the area (Loch Ness, Ardnamurchan, Glencoe, Oban etc). Owners Carol and Graham very welcoming and helpful. Clean and modern toilets, showers and wash up area. Hardstanding and hook-ups with beautiful view down small valley to Loch Linnhe. Took a walk up the mountain behind for spectacular views of the area, well worth the fairly easy climb to waterfall. Horses, sheep and their lambs, chickens also around site. Childrens playing field and equipment directly across the road, also superb National cycle path right alongside. Got TV signal for those all important weather broadcasts! by pointing the aerial on its vertical plane, north towards the loch. Really great stay, kids loved it, can't think of anything bad to say, feel we might be back one day despite living at the other end of the country!
