Very enjoyable two night stay here. Satellite plug in was available at no extra charge. Site facilities were good and we had no problem with cleanliness as mentioned in another review.

My grandaughter made friends with some other kids, managed to ride her two wheeler bike for the first time and didn't want to leave. Site owner very friendly.

We had an overheating problem with the van just after we left and had to pull in. The owner was following us and stopped to help, giving us details of where we could find a garage to have it checked.

Dunoon is quite handy for stocking up as the camp site shop only has very limited supplies.

An excellent camp site for exploring this wonderful area of argyll.

Spent the weekend at a geocaching event and was pleased with the campsite owners help and advise for the weekend.

The site itself is exactly as a camp site should be, all the amenities that you would require for camping are here on site and clean, well maintained and open all night. If yopu are looking for 5 star then go to a hotel.

Overall a brilliant site that we would be glad to come back to again and again.

Lovely quiet, site set in beautiful surroundings with lovely walks through trees and also to a waterfall behind the site. There were lots of rabbits running around; unfortunately there were lots of midges too!

Only a few toilets/showers but didnít have to queue.

The campersí kitchen was outside (covered roof) and consisted of two sinks and a picnic table.

The owner was friendly and it was a relaxed site. We only stayed two nights before we travelled further north. I would return here again.

We loved this site. It's got a very natural feel, not too regimented either in terms of layout or in terms of rules and regulations. We got a lovely pitch near the playpark, which is very nice and the kids (and dog) were fascinated by the blonde rabbits which abound. The toilet blocks were very clean and well maintained and even though we were staying on the first weekend of the school holidays, we never had to queue for a shower. The site is small enough that we were able to afford our kids (5 and 3 1/2) a bit of freedom and we found other people on the site to be very friendly.

The owners were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. We lost a nut for one of our awning clamps and on asking for help the staff member in question disappeared into the garage and found one for us. Although shop hours seem limited, we found that even if shut, someone would almost always appear and open up for us. No-one batted an eye at the dog.

There's a lovely walk up to a waterfall and beyond, which is accessed right behind the site, and the Cowal Way passes by. It's not a site for those who want entertainment laid on, but we found more than enough to do in the area. The scenery is stunning. Tarbert is a short ferry ride away and Tighnabruaich is worth a look. There's a beautiful sandy bay (Kilbride Bay) on the other side of the peninsula, but those with kids be aware that it's about a mile's walk down a no-vehicles track to get there.

For those in tents, there's a great Campers' Kitchen, under cover and with picnic benches for eating at (you provide the cooker).

One small rider to all this positivity.If you can't stand midges this may not be the place for you. It's not just the site, it's the whole area. All that greenery has to have a downside and the way we saw it, the midges probably keep the hordes away!

All in all, a great place and we'll be back.

We stayed at Glendaurel for four nights in August. The facilities are good - shop stocks a good range of basics, the children's playground excellent if a little out of the way, laundry facilities available.

The site itself is easy to get to and is set in really picturesque surroundings - it cant be faulted. Its a quiet site with no feelings of over crowding.

Pitching was quite peculiar - we were a group of five tents with six children but due to an honest mistake we were placed with the road separating us (bread van at five o clock most mornings was very annoying).

The only downside as mentioned in other reviews is the toilets / showers. There was one shower for the ladies and three for the men. They weren't as clean or modern as other sites I have visited, but saying this the site is quite quiet - I only had to queue a couple of times and it wasn't for long.

Nearby, the local pub has closed down so your nearest is a good 10 miles away. There are a good few pubs that serve food however and the ones that we went to were very accommodating to children and the food was excellent.

Made a trip over to Bute - ferry was extortionate (£13.25 for the car and then £3.25 per adult) and its literally a five minute journey. Rothesay has some good places to see including the castle.

I would not hesitate to recommend this site - a good base for exploring this area of Scotland in pretty surroundings.

5* prices for 1* site! That's how we'd describe this site. The location was ok, just, there was no scenery as such, the nearest bar, (hotel) was a short drive, but was very friendly. Midgies were a real problem, we were next to trees, that didn't help. Staff were friendly, although we only saw them once.
So, where did it all go wrong?? The toilet block was a disgrace! Not only were thre only two showers each, totally inadequate for quite a big site, they were extremely unpleasant, being dirty and very small. In the gents area, at one point there was only one shower working! This was indicative of the whole of the toilet block really.
I'm sure, as with most campers, when using camp sites, at whatever cost, it's not too much to ask that the basic facillities are at least clean, sadly this one fell well short of that, would neither recommend, nor visit again! Shame.
