Nice location, but some sloping pitches. Facilities good and staff friendly and helpful. Some of the hard staying pitches near to reception are quite cramped. Very handy for getting into Oban albeit using quite a narrow road that has plenty of passing places

This is the largest campsite I have ever camped in. Impressively though, as big as it is, the grass is kept immaculate. They use cones to keep tents off the yellowed patches from previous tents, and it seems to work well.

The toilets are cleaned at least three times a day, and I have seen the same guy go around the site picking up any small pieces of rubbish. I get the impression he is obsessive with his work, so you could not accuse the managers of this site as having a complacent attitude.

The site has a good atmosphere for me as I feel I have as much space as I need for my large tent, car and trailer.

The only criticism is that you need to go to the reception area at the gate to pick up wifi, where I think they could extend it by using an extender in the toilet block somehow.

The road to get to the place is a bit narrow, with some morons even using the passing places to park their cars, adding to the tension when towing a trailer or caravan.

One of the best campsites near Oban IMO though, all due to the fact that the staff look like they care and at least try to respect that some of the campers have travelled hundreds of miles to get there.

The site was nicely situated with a nice outlook over the beach. but maybe it was just us but the owner was really grumpy and unfriendly. My husband had a shower and they were filthy, the worst he'd ever been in and people could see in as he was showering and getting dressed, not the best

This campsite has a magnificent view. We found everything spotless, showers, toilets. There was no water contamination problem. The little shop on site is well stocked. The owners are very friendly. It took us 15 min. To Oban center by bike. Probably 2 by car. We stayed for two nights and everything was perfect.

Stayed here overnight during our recent tour of the Highlands. It is an ideal spot for a visit to oban and the surrounding area and has great fishing opportunities from the jetty into the Loch. The site was clean, with what initially appeared to offer plenty of space. However, a lot of the site is sloping as areas are on different levels. The showers weren't that impressive, either too hot or too cold. Reminded me of a shower over the bath trying to get the temp just right. The sinks had modern non touch sensors for the taps, however they need adjusting as you can only wash one hand at a time!

The staff were friendly and the groundsmen were busy making sure the site remained tidy. The grey water waste was not ideally located on a slope as it required huge accuracy when dumping the water otherwise it ran down the road.

Would we stay again? Probably but only because there is little alternative in the area.

I thought this site was lovely, even though the showers were a bit old. I am horrified to read of the water contamination on the other reviews. I was there in July and my hubby fetched the water and he never mentioned contamination! I am hoping it was resolved when we were there. He was quite ill later in our trip! I drank the water too mind, and I am ok.

Anyway, besides that it was beautiful and they had free wifi too. Which if you go anywhere in the Highlands you will realize is very rare. So make the most of it while you are there.

The site is just a short drive into Oban, where we got the ferry to Mull the next day. So cant complain.
