Slept in a camping pod which included a sink fridge and oven although only single benches. The site is at the head of a small valley with pleasant walks in the cliff top woods and down to the sea. Much of the shoreline is private but there is a nice little beach by the entrance.

Facilities were a tired and as other reviewers have noted the water supply was not suitable for drinking. It wasn't clear whether the water bottles left by the washing up area contained drinking water or not. The washing up area was outside. As usual there wasn't enough space for changing and the showers were not adequately drained.

The site is on a single track road to Oban which is a busy and attractive port.

Arrived Oban as prelude to sailing over to Barra. So the site was picked for convenience for the ferry only. Booked in, paid fees and parked up where instructed. When going to get water a scrappy notice, in English only, announced the water was undrinkable. I. E. Should not be used for food preparation, washing up, teeth cleaning and not to be swallowed when showering. I must confess to being privately outraged that this was not mentioned when checking in and paying for the pitch. A most lamentable oversight with potentially serious implications for some. Foreign visitors with motorhomes and limited English could well have filled their on board tanks with it and continued to use it after leaving the site - thus perhaps contaminating the tank and all the internal plumbing as well as their innards. Indeed, I stopped one doing just this. Imagine his relief.

Bottled water was available in reception if you could carry it back uphill to the pitch.

The showering facilities were dated and uncongenial and the disposal facilities poor.

I am afraid the otherwise pleasant nature of the staff and the beautiful location cannot make up for such a shortcoming.

Site is 2miles from Oban along a single track road. There is almost no public transport. Although 2 of the blocks containing sanitary facilities have been refurbished they are very cramped and the water pressure is very poor. WATER - this can not be drunk or used for cleaning teeth unless it is boiled first as it contains bacteria according to an official council environmental health notice.

That said the views from the site are wonderful but I would not consider camping there again, without drinkable water you may as well wild camp.

Visited this site in late September, hadn't pre-book but had no trouble getting a nice level pitch with a hook up and plenty of space, although admittedly it was a quiet time of year.

The site is a little out of town and the buses only run on week days, and as we were only there for a weekend we got a cab into town.

This was a nice tidy site and although the facilities looked a little tired from the outside they were refurbished and clean and well presented on the inside.

Well worth another visit.

Camp staff welcoming and friendly. Scenery absolutely magnificent from all views from the site - bonus was apart from rain early one morning the weather was glorious. Pick your own spot which is a bonus as you can decide to be near facilities or away from it all. Elec hook up available. All facilities clean and well maintained. Can't find anything bad to say about this site. Would stay again without thought.

Had been here a few years ago but it was nice to see this site still the same with nice friendly and helpful staff,

Reasonably priced, excellent facilities and of course a good location with plenty of room for campers, vans and caravans now have pods that don't look to bad

Weather was not bad and very few midgies

We'll be back
