Large site in a lovely location. It's perhaps 3 miles from Oban town centre, but the drive out the coast below the cliffs, with the view across to Kerrera gives a clue to the views from the site.

The site is large and has several areas. The site do not take bookings and they do not turn anyone away due to the space they have available. But the views from most areas are obstructed by trees. If you can, get one of the pitches up on the terraces, as you can see south out to the smaller islands, west over the sound to Kerrera (and watch the boats) and to the North see the sun play on the cliffs as it goes down).

We usually tour from place to place and don't base ourselves in one place, but we stayed here a couple of nights, as Oban is a good place to base yourself for day trips.

Facilities are fine, and clean.

Don't confuse this site with others in the area. We did that a couple of years ago, and ended up at an inferior place.

Good large site with plenty of tent pitches. The grass was very well mown and nice and short. There are several areas where tents can be pitched and we found a nice one which gave a view out of the site towards the Sound of Kerrera. Note although the site is beside the Sound there a only a limited number of pitches available beside the sea and these were reserved for a rally when we were there.

There are a few pitches which hold the sun a lot longer than others and they are the highest - note. Unfortunately they were all taken when we arrived.

The toilet block was a bit rudimentary and showers slow. They were adequate but could do with a make over. The shop was reasonably stocked and the staff were polite.

The site has a campers kitchen and a deep freeze for campers use for ice packs etc. I would definitely return to this site.

Oban is a wonderful place and there is loads to do and see.

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.
