We arrived on motorbikes, and were made very welcome by the owner Duncan. Stopped 3 nights. As stated in other reviews a great little site with fantastic views. There was a great little cafe/van on site open till 7pm for a cuppa and a snack before we set up camp.
The shower block is actually a little 'hut' with 2 great bathrooms which were more like the sort of thing you would find in a bed and breakfast rather than the usual stall type showers found on most sites. A few reviews have commented that there were not enough showers, but we had no problems on this small site.
We stopped up late talking one night, Duncan came over and asked us politely to quieten down a little, he apologised for asking us the morning after. He is a lovely bloke and accommodating for all, The people he asked to leave as mentioned in previous reviews must have been very loud indeed.
Another nice touch is he has stands to keep the BBQ's of the grass, and he has no problem if you later use the BBQ as a firepit to try and keep the midges at bay (to no avail I may add) as long as you keep the fire small and don't burn the grass.
All in all a superb site and we will definitely go back one day. Highly recommended
What a gem of a site with a breathtaking view of the bay. You can see the ferries going back and forth in the distance.
Duncan the owner makes you feel very welcome and takes no nonsense as he did evict a noisy group of tenters when we were there - good for him.
As stated before the facilities are basic but are kept very clean by the man himself.
It is only a small site but the views are great, however be aware of the wind from the bay and get ready to tie down your tent or awning, but don't let that stop you as the views are tremendous.
Benderloch is only a very small village but it has an excellent shop selling about everything. There is also a garage that sells camping and caravan spares which is useful and a cafe cum bookshop.
You can walk from the site to Benderloch and we also walked along the bay to the Caravan Club site, North Ledaig which was huge and impersonal, glad we stayed at Seaview.
The weather wasn't all that good when we stayed but you don't go to Scotland for the weather. The beach is very flat and yes it does have seaweed but its only a two minute walk from the site and no doubt when the weather is good its brilliant for swimming. We saw people kayacking and water skiing etc.
You are not far away from Oban, a short drive and also it doesn't take long to get to Glencoe or Fort William as its only about 45 miles.
Oban has a fery port with trips to the islands of Mull, Iona etc.
We also went to the Isle of Seil and across the Atlantic Bridge which is well worth a look just for the scenery.
A site we will definitely come back to if we are in the area. Duncan keep up the good work!
We stayed here for 5 nights in July 2011 with 2 children under 7. The site is basic although the owner is attentive and tries very hard to make it a good place to stay, for example it has a kitchen/eating area equipped with tables, chairs and microwaves, he provides metal stands for throw away barbeques. Toilets/showers are basic but kept very clean and are completely adequate. The site fees were very reasonable. The location is fantastic, only a short walk to the nearby beach. We had fantastic weather, so good it made it feel a privelidge to be there, the sea view from the site was fantastic and sufficient reason to be there. Oban is a short distance south and has a ferry to Mull, good for a trip to Tobermory (Balamory). The local area is beautiful. We'd love to return, my only reservation is that after having such great weather the first time might make anything less a bit disappointing. A small, personal type site with a relaxed atmosphere.
Stayed here for 2 nights at start of June, 5 man tent, 2 adults and 2 children.
Small quiet site on a farm, basic facilities but nice and clean. 50p for 10min shower which put our cost up.
10 min walk to good local store, cafe/book shop and camping shop.
10 min drive to Oban for supermarket etc.
Just a short walk from a nice beach, shingle some sand and lots of seaweed!
Duncan the owner was very helpful and friendly, gave us a bit of a discount as there was a tent with 5 guys in it making a lot of noise during the night, assured us he doesn't usually take groups like that.
Price was £6 per adult and £2 per child, our 1 year old was free.
Plenty of sheep around so make sure you take ear plugs if you want a quiet night as there was quite a lot of 'baaing' during the light nights!
Lovely views out to sea. Would most likely stay again.
