Wonderful site. Ignore those who moan it is 12 miles from Oban because the 20 minute drive is well worth it. Right near the Sealife Centre and easy to find. So clean and well kept with great staff, a spotless laundrette and great pitches. Would not hesitate to use again. Even after a lot of rain the ground was in good condition and the pitch for the van dry.

As CCC members we tend to use the smaller certified sites whenever possible so found this one a bit crowded as it was nearly full.

The still air within the the lovely walled garden site unfortunately meant the midges were present and we couldn't sit out and enjoy the surroundings the one evening we were there.

The site and the toilet block and other facilities are immaculate and the Warden was chatty and informative. We were only passing through so cannot comment about the surrounding area and attractions.

Stayed here for one night whilst cycle touring. It had been raining for several hours before I arrived and the ground was sodden with puddles forming in some areas, however the receptionist put on his coat and came out into the site with me to help find a suitable place to pitch tent in the conditions. The soil seemed to be quite stony, which made getting tent pegs in more challenging than usual, but as the site is enclosed by the high walls of an old walled garden, there was little wind so I didn't worry about getting the pegs fully in. The shower block was excellent with heating and plenty of facilities, I have marked facilities down a little due to the stony ground.

Arrived at this site early October in surprisingly good weather so saw it at its best, soon to be followed by torrential downpours but this wasn't a problem as the level, hard standing pitches and Tarmac road and paths ensured good access to all amenities. The site, in a partially walled garden, is well laid-out with spacious, level pitches and excellent toilet block and washing up facilities.

The wardens were friendly and helpful and filled us in about the local area and services.

Nearby Sutherland Grove is a stunning woodland area with designated cycling and walking trails, excellently signed and maintained. It is literally through a gate in the wall and was absolutely perfect for walking our two retrievers.

So good we stayed quite a bit longer than planned. Hope we'll be back!

Our first time here but definitely not the last. Extremely helpful staff allowed us to choose our pitch and guided us into position. The facilities are up to the usual standard for CCC sites, even fresh flowers in the gents! Although the assistant wardens had not arrived for the season everything was spotless and neat.

There are walks from the site into Sutherland Grove and we wandered about for hours giving the dogs a good walk each day. The shop is well stocked if you need something in an emergency and there are supermarkets in Oban.

We had a day on Lismore, taking the ferry from Port Appin, and had a meal at the Pier House hotel, try the mussels.

Personally we were not impressed by the Sea Life Centre even though we got half price admission with an Oban car parking ticket.

Finished off our 'round Scotland tour' in this lovely wee site. This site is in a walled garden and is so secluded and sheltered. Lovely welcome given by warden who showed us which pitches we could choose and gave us all the information we needed. The toilet block is squeaky clean with good hot showers. The site is very pretty with very well kept grass and flowers, good information room.

The surrounding area is great to explore and we did some exploring on hired electric bikes and as this area has a brilliant cycle path we felt safe cycling along.

There are some good walks just outside this site and we managed the easier 'yellow' walk which takes you past some amazing hidden water falls.

This site is quite a distance from Oban and that suited us just fine as we prefer quieter places to visit.

This site is now on our top ten sites to visit again as it is such a peaceful and relaxing place to be.
