Stayed here for 2 weeks a the beginning of June. Spent the two weeks very smug due to the weather. Arrived at 10:30am after travelling overnight to be welcomed onto the site and shown to our pitch.
The pitch was level, big and well drained (it rained on our last day)
The toilet facilities were spotless with four free showers, six sinks, a pay hair dryer(20p)
The washing up area had six sinks with a further sink for hand washing undercover. Also there was washing machines and tumble dryers that worked from tokens from the shop. Also WiFi available for a small charge.
The shop was basic stocked and opened twice daily Am and PM. Iain was a good site manager walking or riding his bike several times during the day and was very good to talk to about any issues.
Noise was respected at night except by two separate nights when small groups arrived and thought that 2am was acceptable time to chat, but iain saw to it the next morning.
The site overlooks Loch Leven and seems to have good views from wherever you are pitched. Also the Pap is behind and can be walked from the site there and back in about 8 miles. There are low level walks too from the site around the Lochan accessed from across the road.
The Nisa is about 1/4 mile away and co op in the next village and the supermarket in Fort William 12 miles away.
The TIC is available in Ballachulish, but in the laundry room is loads of leaflets for things to do and see. A perfect location to explore Glencoe, Glen Etive, Glen Nevis but also Mull and Skye via ferries are also able to explored.
So much to do so little time we are definitely back next year.
Stayed just one night at this campsite. Great scenery and beautiful location. Owner pleasant! We had to just pick a site ourselves as the owner was out when we arrived. He came up later in the evening and gave us advice as to where the local pubs were that allowed dogs. Big area that you can cook in etc if raining. Shower block clean, showers nice and hot, shop not open until Easter. Great walks for the dog. Site into re-clycling. Play park for kids. Will return for sure! My favourite site so far.
We arrived on 30th December to celebrate new year with a few friends. The snow on Rannoch Moor on the way up was a bit daunting, but that gave way to rain as we got nearer to Glencoe. And the rain never stopped for the whole of our stay! We never stopped as planned at the Green Welly at Tyndrum (excellent Cullen Skink!) due to the snow.
We have stayed here on 3 occasions now, rain every time! However, only a fool would come to this part of the country without waterproof gear, so all was well.
On arrival, the warden appeared from nowhere and showed us to our site, he said to call round once we were settled - all very laid back.
On 31st Dec the Owners organise a 'shin-dig' in the covered BBQ area. Campers turn up armed with their own booze, mingle in the party atmosphere, enjoy BBQ food and a fab fireworks display at midnight! There was also a charity raffle. Great effort by the locals!
The toilet block has improved since our last stay, its had a coat of paint and was nice and clean and warm. So nice to come out of a shower without shivering!
Glencoe itself is a nice wee village, the shop is indeed well stocked with a better selection of bottled Real Ale than the small co-op over in Ballachulish.
The view over the loch is fantastic, if you are lucky you will get a site right at the front. Stunning.
There is a playground on site, however as we have no children its not something I have given a lot of attention to!
Lovely dog walk behind the site. Forestry commission sign posted, it goes around a small loch which is lovely. There are further walks up the hill which offer fab views.
There is a hotel in Glencoe which is nice. There is a pub over in Ballachullish behind the co-op, however we haven't been in it so cannot comment on it!
No cash machine around, but you can get cash back up to £50 at co-op.
What a start to my school holidays the drive to Glencoe was breath taking and to arrive at the campsite next to the lake and mountains surrounding you was just what I needed. The pitches are plotted out very clearly and there is loads of space for your tent and car without feeling too close to your neighboring tents. The facilities (shower, toilet, and washroom) are really clean and well maintain regulator. There is recycle facilities which is fantastic when camping. I can say they have thought of everything.
We also stopped in the hobbit for one night what an experience very novel idea equipped with TV, microwave and kettle was suitable for me and my partner but would be to small if you have 2 children(8 years and up) and 2 adults. As an alternative to camping I would stop in the hobbit again.
Over all you can tell the owners of the campsite really enjoy what they do they are very layer back approach to the campsite rubs off on you. We spent two days chilling on the campsite eating and drinking and loads of sleep
Itís got me thinking if I was to one day win the lottery I would want to own a campsite and model it on Invercoe
We stayed for a total of 4 nights with perfect weather. Very friendly and relaxed site owner. Had reserved a couple of pitches for us, but made sure we were happy with the position of the pitch and was happy to offer alternatives if we weren't. Wonderful scenery, mountains all around, especially nice early in the morning.
No rowdy behaviour at all from other campers whilst we were there, with a good level of respect for each other. Toilets and shower block were all very clean and tidy - a bit busy in showers at 8am ish, but this is to be expected. Dishwashing area also kept very clean and there is a very useful (or I imagine it is useful - never used it due to good weather) boot drying area.
I was concerned about the general reports in the Highlands of midges, but the park midge discouragers seem to work well and we were not particularly bothered by them. Good location for Ben Nevis/Fort William and Glencoe is a lovely, historic village.
Slipway is helpful for getting onto loch, even if we were only using our rubber dinghy! Lovely clean loch, but I guess they all are? Communal barbecue area is a great idea when the weather is not good.
We didn't use the on site shop, but the local supermarket in Glencoe is surprisingly well stocked and very reasonably priced.
Overall we had a great mid week break and would definitely consider returning, despite the 9 hour drive
