A lovely site. Our party of five adults and one child stayed at this site for four nights. The warden took great care to ensure we had a pitch large enough to keep our three tents together, with acceptable space between them.

The site is very well looked after with well trimmed grass and well drained gravel paths and hardstanding for motorhomes and caravans. The toilets/showers are very clean and well lit- one small criticism here is that there are only two showers and toilet cubicles each in the ladies & gents, not a problem when we were there but must surely lead to queuing at busier times. A sizeable drying room is located in the facility block, we found this very useful in the unpredictable weather!

I was extremely impressed with the disabled toilet/ shower room after being directed there when the main toilets were being cleaned. I work with disabled people and have to say the provision at roseview is top notch- well done guys!

From a tent users point of view the site has an interesting terrain, with terraced pitches cut into the hillside and includes some nice secluded areas. The motorhome and caravan area is on good flat gravelled areas. Although house building is underway in the lower part of the valley it is well hidden and the campsite has a lovely 'out in the sticks' feel to it.

Oban itself is about a mile and a half away with decent shops, supermarkets and restaurants. You can get spectacular sunsets across Oban Bay, I'd recommend a trip up Pulpit Hill at sunset to photographers (or anyone else for that matter) for superb views across the town and highlands & islands (Pulpit hill is at the ferry terminal end of town).

To summarise, a lovely secluded and very scenic site with friendly efficient wardens who take great care of it. Highly recommended.

Oban is a fantastic location especially if you like water based activities.

We originally booked for three nights which became five and then ten. This was due to the location and the fact that my six year old daughter was happy playing in the park, feeding the ducks who resided near the flowing stream and exploring.

The toilets and showers were very clean of which it was possible to use the disabled facility which helped a great deal when sorting the girl out.

There is also a on site bbq area in the form of a snug. A great place to have a bbq with friends and is sheltered from the elements.

In terms of location, the site is semi rural with both a dive centre (Puffin), Tesco and Oban centre no too far away. Albeit the site is surrounded by hills and sheep.

No doubt we will be back in the future.

Lots of positives and one or two helpful comments (I hope).

Very convenient for Oban and quite well signposted in the town but the approach is up a long narrow minor road with passing places. I found this a bit worrying when towing the van.

The site is in a pleasant rural area. It is nice and quiet. The warden is very pleasant and helpful. The little map of the site is very useful.

Everything is kept very clean. I can only speak about the ladies' toilet/shower area. The water in the showers has low pressure and the water in the dish washing area although hot in the morning is only lukewarm by evening.

As the site blog states there are no play facilities and there is no shop except for a small selection of canned soft drinks. A small lending library is available.

Overall I would recommend it and would return but with the tent rather than a tourer but that could just be me being a scaredy cat!

Roseview in Oban, if you get to the site via the very narrow (with passing places only) road then its well worth visiting.

Total silence, clean, excellent play park for the children, clean toilet & shower facilities. The site could be improved with more showers as if the site was busy then you would need to queue in the morning, 2showers & toilets each (male & female).

Overall well worth a visit. Remember to take your midge repellent with you, the west coast is known for the midges & if the weather is nice then they will have a feast on you.

A little bit of a walk for the chemical & grey water disposal if your pitched near the play park.

Play park is excellent for the kids, swings, balance beam, monkey bars & climbing frame, for the really small there is a sand pit. There is also the ducks to keep the kids amused.

Within 5min drive there is Tesco supermarket for all your supplies & requirements.

Thanks for an excellent time.

We stayed 2 nights in July 2011. Maybe because I booked for 2 adults and a child, we got offered a choice of 3 pitches beside the play park. However this was not too bad as there were few kids on site during our visit. This would not be to everyone's taste and I would recommend requesting a pitch further from the play ground at the time of booking. The toilets/showers are clean and there seemed to be enough to cope during our visit. Its a couple of miles from the town centre but there is a Tesco about a mile away using a back road.

Lovely little campsite in a valley high up behind Oban. Our children 7, 5 & 4 loved the play area and the stream running through the site. Spent a good while looking for tadpoles and the resident ducks with ducklings came over for a feed every now and again! Buzzards hovered above campsite too. Pitch was right across from park which was handy. Toilet block has everything you need ie laundry, drying room, dish wash area and info room. Toilets and showers clean but slightly dated and would benefit from new decor as presently looks old fashioned.

Oban itself was a busy town with plenty of shops. We visited Easdale Island, Sea Life Sanctuary and Cruachan Power Station which is under a mountain! No wi-fi unfortunately so we did feel a little out of touch but free Wi-fi in Leisure Centre.
