Arrived and pitched the tent. Nice campsite with great coastal views. Although we struggled to find any good hikes nearby and spent most of our time in the town centre, which has lots of nice independent stores other attractions such as McCaig's Tower and Dunollie Castle.

However, we were not notified on arrival of the absence of a safe water supply. The staff were all very nice, but it seems a bit odd this wasn't mentioned. There was a sign up on the drinking water tap telling of bacterial contamination, and that we should not use the water to brush teeth, drink, wash food etc. This was quite a big problem, especially as the sign was only on that one tap (and was quite a small sign) but not in the bathrooms. I had to stop a few people who didn't know from using water in the bathrooms.

There were also no recycling facilities on the site and the owner/staff were chucking whole slices of bread into the pond to feed the ducks, which is very, very bad for their health.

Despite these issues, the showers were bearable, although there were queues. The best part was the campers kitchen, with a free to use microwave and gas hob. Wi-Fi was also available near reception.

If the water issue is resolved then I would recommend a visit, although recycling should be improved if possible.

Only 6. 50 pppn.

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.
