We had only planned to spend one night here, but it was such a wonderful spot we stayed for a second. Had a ferry to catch, or would have stayed longer! The site is ideally located for the ferries to the islands.

Great location just outside Oban on a small hill overlooking the sea & the island of Kerrera - wonderful views! 10 minute cycle into Oban - a lovely town with a wide range of shops - Tartan Souvenirs, ice cream, outdoor gear, plus restaurants, some high street names such as Boots & Superdrug. We had a lovely lunch on the quay at the Ee-Usk restaurant - delicious local fish & shellfish & good service - a real treat & the sun shone!

The campsite is larger than you think but this is not a criticism - it means that there are a variety of places to pitch and could be very useful in bad weather. There are grass fields for tents & campervans, static caravans, a level area overlooking the view with hook-ups, a lower grass field, hardstandings, and chalets too!

Good shop selling basics plus fresh rolls, wine selection & frozen items also postcards, newspapers.

Friendly owners let us take a look before we chose our pitch which is much appreciated. Showers & loos were clean & tidy, not modern but they did what we needed them to do.

Dogs welcome & there are great walks from the site to the hills at the back, giving wonderful views. Cattle & sheep on the hills - keep your dog under control.

( Keep an eye out for the beautiful chickens on site - they pop up all over the place - and their multicoloured Tobermory inspired coops). I would say that it was child friendly as there was a playground, and space to run & play. The road is very quiet, so you can walk down to the waters edge to see what you can find.

We would definitely stay here again.

Bottom field just by the gate facing down the Sound of Kerrera glorious sunshine views astounding, toilets clean could do with more showers. Toilets were a bit of an uphill trek, shop stocked basics staff are friendly and helpful. Didn't use the playground but looked nice, campers kitchen gas hob didn't work but microwave did a mean baked tattie, campers room has tv and powerpoints handy for charging mobile phones etc, a pool table and football table campsite could do with makeover but staff were helpful and views made for a really chilling week(we needed the exercise of the toilet trek cos we just lazed and watched the boats go by). Will be back

Beautiful campsite and friendly welcome. Good to choose your own pitch! Intended spending 1 night here before catching ferry on 24th but as ferry was cancelled we ended up staying 2 nights. Loved the site and helpful staff. Only negative was the showers. They need a revamp and the water pressure is non existent. A dribble rather than a shower. Also think if the site was busy there would not be enough showers and toilets. Other than that though it is a great site. Lovely dog walk through bluebell wood and fantastic views. Spent our first night on hardstanding then second night decided on a grass pitch in quiet corner.

Visited this site on September bank holiday weekend. Site was quiet on arrival and we booked in at the farmhouse reception.

The tent pitches are located at the bottom end of the site in a large field. We chose our stop but it is difficult to find a flat-ish pitch as the field does have a slight slope throughout.

You can park your car next to pitches which is helpful, however beware if the ground is particularly soggy as you may get stuck.

The area for tents is spacious but lacks any kind of view. The sound of Kerrera is totally obscured by a bank of trees.

Basic toilet and shower facilities, but well stocked with paper and soap, and most importantly, they were clean. No limit to water usage in showers, pot wash and bins located on outside of toilet blocks.

A lot of people would comment that these blocks need updated - however we found them to be more than adequate for our 3 night stay.

Oban is a short drive along a very narrow, windy road - be careful if you choose to walk it!

Excellent amenities within the town and plenty to see and do in the surrounding area.

A lovely situated campsite let down by its facilities.

The bottom area of this large campsite is just a car park and suitable for one night. We stayed in the top half with amazing views. Was rather exposed to the elements and the van shook at night due the terrific downpours.

There wasn't much room between pitches but more than made up for by the views over the hills.

It's an hours walk into Oban. There's a school bus that goes in and out on school days which is useful.

The site was just under 20 a night for 2 adults and a motorhome. This felt over priced. The toilet block looked like something from my junior school (1960s). A few scruffy toilets that don't flush properly and full of pale brown water.

The showers were painful to use. A trickle of tepid water in a non heated block (horrible to use in September). These facilities badly need updating.

I wouldn't recommend this site and I'm sure there's better in the area.
