It had been raining all day when we arrived at this campsite and when we were shown to our pitch it was waterlogged. Immediately the owners looked at other pitches to find one suitable to pitch our tent. The ground was understandably very damp but the owners assured us it drained quickly when the rain stopped, which it did.

Unfortunately the August rain inevitably meant we were pitching the tent whilst fighting the dreaded midges. When we mentioned this later to the owners they lent us some mosquito repellent coils to burn near the entrance to our tent which worked brilliantly. They were so good we bought some ourselves and would recommend them to anyone camping in this area in midge season.

The site itself is nestled in a beautiful valley with 360 degree views of hills. There are a few walks nearby but also a dog area within the site where our labrador happily played frisbee.

The washroom and shower facilities are spotlessly clean and very modern. There is also a large, well equipped kitchen with washing machine, sinks, kettle fridge freezer and dryer. Duror itself is very small with only a few houses and so we felt the site could benefit from a small shop selling essentials like milk.

The surrounding area is fantastic with lots of opportunities for hiking. We would recommend the beach called the silver sands of morar, just a few miles from Mallaig. When we visited the weather was so beautiful we could have been in the Mediterranean with white sand and clear blue water. Also the walk along Glen Nevis near Fort William has dramatic scenery.

Overall a fantastic end to our holiday.

Just home from staying here for 3 nights at the end of August beginning of September.

I have been camping since I was 5 years old,I am now 56 so I have been to a lot of sites but none compares with this one IT'S THE BEST.

The owner and her family are on site 24/7 and are very friendly helpful people there is no such thing as a problem cos they get it sorted asap.

The toilet block is second to none exceptionally clean and tidy even central heated,showers are free and have lovely warm water.

The camper's area is equipped with washing machine, tumble drier, fridge / freezer, toaster, kettle and microwave (you don't get this with the bigger sites)

This is a site definitely to be visited.

We will be back roll on next summer.

Ps this site is for those who like a peaceful holiday with nice surroundings.

We stayed for 3 nights earlier this month (August). One of the best appointed sites we have stayed. A beautiful, clean and new facilities block with ample showers, toilets, washing arrangements etc. The owners are especially friendly making us feel very welcome and they had gone to great length to allow a group to camp together (4 caravans and a tent). Breathtaking scenery and a convenient distance to both Oban and Fort William.

A small child's play-park is within a few minutes walk, sandy beach and a small shop a few minutes drive.

Very reasonably priced with a standard fee for a pitch whatever the outfit.

I would definitely recommend this to others.

This site is one of the best we have been in. Toilet/Shower area spotless, and its free showers using press tap with a fixed temperature, which is hot enough.

Kitchen area with washing up sinks, and food preparing sinks, fridge freezer, kettle, microwave and even a chair to relax in. Washing machine and tumble drier you have to pay for, but hey come on this is a fantastic site!

We only booked for two nights, but knew we couldn't get better in this area and stayed five nights.

This is a brilliant site; itís all been said in previous reviews. Canít rate this site highly enough. The owners were the best we came across and treated us like family, they were so welcoming, approachable, helpful and generous and nothing was too much trouble for them. They take real pride in their site.

The toilet/shower facilities (free) are the best Iíve ever come across. They were spotless, immaculate and good quality toilet roll and paper towels were used! There were plenty of hooks to hang coats, wash bags etc.

The campersí kitchen was the best Iíve ever come across, they thought of everything and it made our stay much more enjoyable. This site caters for those in tents and those in caravans/motorhomes equally. They proved this by having kettle, toaster and microwave in their campersí kitchen. This proved invaluable for those staying in tents when the weather was bad. It was clear that the owners were interested in making sure you had a good time. The site was well kept and the pitches were generous.

The campsite pitch number is allocated to you so if you take your motorhome/van away for the day your pitch will not be used by any other visitor.

We stopped off here on our way to Mull. We got the Corran Ferry which is cheaper than the ferry from Oban.

I would definitely recommend this site to others.

The toilets, showers and campsite kitchen facilities are kept very clean. The new owners are welcoming, friendly and any problem is no problem. They will also have knowledge of the surrounding areas. We stayed 2 nights and took our 2 kids which were safe to walk about the campsite freely. Great location as Fort Willam and Oban are in easy reach. Cant wait to return hopefully the end of August, a place I will be using often.
