We stayed at this site for 4 nights from Aug 30th, having enjoyed the Runrig Homecoming gig at Scone Palace on Saturday 29th.
Some of the descriptions of this site lead us to believe that it would be suitable for our requirements: no children, quiet, small, clean etc. And so it was.
Nothing is perfect, though, so let's get the downside out of the way immediately: one night was completely spoiled by a noisy group of youths who arrived late and made a lot of noise until three in the morning.
That's it! All else is upside: friendly owners allowed us to pitch a little higher up the site than usual for tents as few caravans were about. The facilities were ample (we're camping so don't expect hotel qualities) and always immaculately clean.
The view is simply stunning! Looking south to the the Island of Kerrera and towards the Atlantic, we would have stared at the view forever had not the rain been incessant. It was cold and windy, too. Not to be outdone, we had several trips out including to Seil Island, Glen Lonan, Glencoe and to Oban where fresh langoustine and scallops were bought for a definitely non-camping style meal.
The owners were most helpful and very pleasant, in particular the owner's son: if you read this, Duncan, good luck with your business venture.
A great site; just a pity there's no switch in the shower block to turn off that Scottish rain!
We found this site while out driving and stayed for 2 nights. The owner Violet was very welcoming and friendly, she only charged us £6 per night including use of the showers. We had views out over the sea although didn't manage to get to the beach because of the weather. The toilet block and shower are kept immaculate with lots of hot water. The site is a big field and well looked after and we shall definitely be returning next year.
An excellent 'old world' site not spoiled by overdevelopment. Good pitches for tents, and fantastic views across bay to mountains beyond. Beach nearby is excellent, but slightly undermined by mad people in a powerboat and a couple of jet skis.
Noted that site now 'adult only' before setting off, but spoke to owner's son who was very happy for us to come with our 2 boys. Indeed, there were a lot of children on the site, but all well-behaved, so there is clearly some flexibility.
The site is probably has too few toilets (5 in total, with 2 showers) but even though the weekend was very busy when we stayed, there was no problem (most caravanners seemed to use own facilities). Everything was clean.
Definitely will return (subject to children issue).
Perhaps the best little site I have visited in a long time. The reception on arrival was first class and I was able to pick my pitch and have my caravan facing any direction. The view out to the sea was something else, a very short walk to the beach revealed clean sands and shallow clear water safe for swimming. The site was spotless and was run in a relaxing manner which helped to create a very good atmosphere all round. Tenters were well catered for.
Three minute walk to Trallee Holiday Village you can get the best fish and chips any where around for a fiver.
I will certainly recommend this site to anyone. However no children are allowed which suited us. Cost per night was £14 which included ehu and awning. Highly recommend this site.
This was a last minute booking and we just managed to get the holiday week off and everywhere was full. We were surprised how much space there was on this lovely site, with its lovely sea view all the way across to Oban and lovely quiet beach and bay possibly one of the nicest locations we have visited
This lovely site is dog friendly and a little hidden gem. We did not use the facilities as we have our own however the looked clean and well kept. I'm reluctant to add this review as we loved the quiet location and (in the know) visitors but thought it would be mean to keep this from visitors to the Highlands. I would certainly recommend and we will definitely return
Phoned to enquire about prices and spoke to Mrs McKellor (Violet), the owner, who told me it was £12 plus £1 for each child (we have 2). This seemed okay, a bit more than expected.
Set off, the weather forecast was good. Found it quite easily: turn left just before the school, along a single lane road, with passing places, and it's on the left. We spotted a large sign saying 'no children'. This was a surprise!
I went to 'reception', the farm house, to 'check-in' and enquire about the sign. Mrs McKellor had a bad experience with children last year; she said they'd caused much damage resulting in her having to pay a lot to repair the plumbing! However, we did stay and there were four other families out of about 8 other units!
There are 2 bathrooms in the main structure. Each with loo, shower and sink. There are also 3 loos at the top of the field, in porta-cabins, and another shower with cold water only! There is a washing up area and an additional outside water-tap and lots of bins. The facilities are kept clean and well maintained. Loo roll and soap was provided.
The field is on a slight slope and surrounded by a fence. There was plenty of room for our boys to play footie, (but obviously no kids' facilities). We pitched at the lower fence facing south and overlooking the sea - bliss!
It's a very short walk to the beach. It's a lovely bay. The area is very scenic and there is a short walk to town, either along the beach or the single lane road. In town / village there is a well-stocked mini-market and a camping store. There is a lovely cafe with outdoor seating and it's licensed. There is a farmers' market within walking distance, it's on the 3rd Thursday of the month. We bought 'real' beef burgers for the BBQ! You can take a bus to Oban, only 5 minutes over the Connel Bridge. Along the beach is Tralee Holiday Park with wooden chalet accommodation, mini-golf, a flying-fox and fish and chip shop. There are forest walks on the hill and lots of lanes to wander along or cycle. We were only there 3 nights so didn't explore extensively! It is a pretty, well-kept and clean area. We did have great weather.
