We spent 2 nights here and had to pay top dollar not being members (44). If we had seen the sloping field we were given before we paid, maybe the campsite a mile up the road would have been a better option. We had to park on a gravel track away from our pitch and carry everything 25 yards to the flattest piece of ground we could find. A shame as the site has lots of flat, well drained and prepared areas elsewhere that left us feeling we were tucked away at the back of the site away from members pitches.

The facilities are the usual Caravan and Camping Club high quality and the block is guarded by a keypad password. The midges definitely mean business and need to be prepared for, but the surrounding mountain scenery make it all worth while.

The site office holds all primary supplies and is run by a friendly couple. The gate is locked at 11pm so a late night would mean leaving your car outside the barrier until morning. A mile or so further down the road is a garage and a few diners, plus a scenic Loch Leven round trip that includes a shellfish factory where fresh produce can be eaten or taken away.

You can save 5. 40 a night if you join the CC Club (42 a year) making the nightly rate more acceptable for tents if you use them more than 8 nights a year.

This site set in a ring of hills Ben Nevis not far away what wonderful views breath taking drive her from Loch Ness and onwards to Killin. Next to Glencoe tourist information centre that has a nice coffee shop and a good viewing platform. Lovely site good clean toilet block with showers, laundry and wash up area. Pitches ample for car van and awning all set around a large grass area. No papers in reception but milk, coffee, tea etc. There is a walk from site into Glencoe village I was told a walk of one mile to village it felt like one and a half miles to me but pretty, though hard going for my old legs, through the forest path good well laid out all the way good dog walk. It meets the road after about half a mile into the village. A nisa store and lovely cafe (great coffee and scrambled eggs)in the village with a garage that also had papers. A great walking area and I was told good for Munro's. Staff friendly and always busy they are new to the site and adding to it all the time.

The Glen Coe club site is situated off the A82 near the visitor centre and access to the site is easy. The toilets, shower areas and the grounds are of the standard expected and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Glen Coe has fantastic scenery and numerous walks ranging from gentle strolls to the more serious climbs. The site is more than a mile from Glencoe village where small local shops are available, there is a Co oP supermarket and Tourist information centre further south at Ballachulish. Fort William is the main local town offering various supermarkets and fuel, Oban is situated further south, again with numerous shops and supermarkets.

Great site in a stunning location in the mountains next door to the Visitors Centre.

Showers and toilets were modern and kept clean (despite the relentless rain and doubtlessly muddy feet).

Nice path through the woods to the village centre where you can stock up on essentials, and other nice walks through the woods from the site

Wardens were friendly and helpful

Bit near to the road and the logging road on one side so if road noise is going to bother you ask for a pitch on the other side

We usually stay at Bunree, but thought we would give this site a go - so pleased we did.

You don't get the loch views, but you do get spectacular mountain views all around you from every pitch. All pitches are spacious and hard-standing. Facilities are as you expect from C&CC - immaculate, warm and welcoming. We were booked in to the site by the assistant warden - very friendly and helpful a real asset to the C&CC.

From the site there is a footpath down to Gencloe village, plenty of other walks in the area. Less then 20 minutes drive into Fort William and 10 minutes up to Glencoe itself. The Ski centre has a brilliant cafe which is worth a visit - the chairlifts run all year too.

Yet another top C&CC site, really cannot fault it in anyway and would recommend it.

Just returned from a weeks stay here, and wouldn't hesitate to go back, the site is in a stunning location, the wardens couldn't do enough for us and the facilities are kept spotless at all times, its a great base to explore the area, we went as far north as Fort Augustas and took the long drive down to Glen Etive, we don't have kids, but do have 5 dogs and the dog walk from the back of the site was good for quick wee's etc but not long enough for the spaniels, but with the abundance of forestry walks in the area we were spoilt for choice within a 10 minute drive. Only issue for me was we were on the pitch at the side of the entrance to the dog walk, and you could hear the forestry lorries going past during the week, it didn't bother us, but if it is likely to bother you I would ask for a pitch on the far side of the site. All in all this was as close to perfect as you can get
