Nice site, showers, toilets good, play area and dog walk good, like the idea that you can choose your own spot to pitch BUT beware, make sure you pitch at a right angle to the road(?).

We didn't and after we had set all up and was just starting to cook we were told we had to turn around to be at a right angle towards the road. We did ask why only to be told because if we park like we had, everyone else will want too. We are still at a loss as to why

Shame because we will not be returning.

Great site. Plenty of room for tents with no pre-defined pitches - always nice. Toilet block for tents small (2 WC and 2 showers) but perfectly decent and clean. Free showers. Would image could get very long queues when busy.

Owner very straight forward and reasonable. Was prepared to let us use our fire basket providing we protected the grass with BBQ bricks of which there were plenty freely available by toilet block.

Site about 3 miles south of Oban - nice little cycle if you have push bikes to hand.

Just arrived back from a four night stay at this campsite.

First of all, many people on here have commented on the owner/manager being rude. There is now a new manager (only been there 2 months) on the scene and he is very chatty and helpful along with the lady as well. They were both very happy to help when we were there.

The campsite is beautiful, well kept with some amazing views. The shop/reception wasn't open, it opens in May until September! We visited the campers kitchen, unfortunately the cooker didn't work and nor did the freezer. We weren't too fussed but it would've been nice. It would also have been nice to have a kettle/sink in there.

The games room was pretty sparse with a snooker table, a non working TV, a racing game (not working) and a couple of chairs. I can imagine this site gets extremely busy in summer and the facilities do not cover this at all.

We counted approximately 9 toilets and 5 showers for the women. For the men there was approximately: 4 urinals, 6 toilets and 4 showers. I don't think this is enough when the site is busy at all. We only noticed one drinking water tap but we didn't really visit the other toilet blocks. If you are camping at the bottom of the site (jetty area) then there are no toilets down there, you have to walk up the big hill to go.

I would say there's not an awful lot for the kids, a couple of swings is all there is.

The site itself is beautiful with gorgeous views and we were lucky as the site was very quiet and we had some amazing weather.

It cost us 12 for two adults in a 2 man tent with no electric hook up which isn't bad.

Watch out for the crow who nibbles at things in your tent, he is very friendly and will come to you for a stroke.

All in all, a lovely site with minimal facilities. We will go back but not in mid-high season.

Arriving at this site early in April it was very clean and tidy. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The shop had not yet opened being so early in the season. Enquiring about the nearest shop, as we needed an onion we were given one, along with some delicious free range eggs.

Whilst the toilets blocks are clean and tidy they are getting a little tired.

Being early in the year the grass was in very good condition. The pitches are large and it all feels very spacious.

The site is in a good position for exploring the area and its possible to have car free days.

We would return to this site.

Stayed for a few nights in August in the motorhome.

The site, for us, is in a great location, comfortable walk in to Oban and the views are fantastic. We found the staff to be extremely pleasant and friendly. The grass etc is well kept on the site.

The big downside is the facilities ie showers, toilets etc. They are wholly inadequate in terms of numbers, and are in major need of updating. The staff are great in my opinion, but you can only work with what you've got, and these facilities are in desperate need of attention.

Touring the western highlands we chose Oban campsite as it was next to the water (we planned to do some canoeing) and had a play area for our 2 young children.

On arrival we found reception was closed between 11am-4pm, unusual in peak season. We picked a pitch in accordance with instructions on the reception door and set up camp.

After an hour we where told to move our tent as we were in the wrong area, despite the map stating that area was jetty camping (ideal for canoeists). We did as requested with no fuss (except from the children) and set up on another pitch. I have to say we found the staff very unhelpful and quite rude. We had planned to stay longer but did not feel welcome.

The facilities are somewhat lacking for a large campsite. I had to queue for 30 minutes in the morning with my young daughter for a shower and the queue for the toilets went out of the shower block and almost around the side.

The children did enjoy the swings and it is a beautiful location. I do not however feel I could recommend this campsite to anyone.
