Just back from a 4 night stay at this site. What can I say. Location, facilities, staff, etc, etc all 1st class. First visit to this site and will return and recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to go in the area.

Yes, there was grass in toilet areas and yes, there was lack of hot water but it still did the job and toilets were cleaned at least twice a day.

Enjoyed the fact of not accepting big all sex groups as the campsite was very peaceful at night.

Views were spectacular.

2nd visit to the site. Last visit 6 years ago and nothing we could see has been changed. We stayed for 4 nights which was 3 too many but we paid upfront.

Positives Location is stunning with open views, grass is well kept, location to Oban. And that's about it.

Negatives Staff are rude and unhelpful the majority of the time. Prices aren't very reasonable for the standard of facitlities. Regular staff patrols round the park in noisy diesel engine cars including one at 11pm. Grass is cut regardless of weather and cut grass is a permanent feature in all the toilet blocks regardless of time of visit. Never encountered any cleaning being undertaken in any of the facilities. Dish washing area is only partly covered by roof and water is warm to tepid.

This site is not one we will be going back to as I would rather give my hard earned cash to someone who actually cares if you have an enjoyable stay. Not this lot of money grabbers! :-(

My husband and I are just back from a 2 night stay here with our 3 children and dog while on our tour of the east coast

We got a great pitch on the sea front which I was amazed with the view of the islands, which we were to visit. I think we were lucky with the weather as it did not rain while we were there

The facilities was good, the reception and shop were open all day and the toilets and showers were kept clean, I found the staff very friendly. Overall it is a great site and we liked it very much

We just got in in the nick of time having done Oban and the great distillery tour. Unfortunately it started to rain for the first time all week, but we were on our way home and I feel the holiday blues might have been kicking in.

I was also missing my daughter and I think she would have liked this site as I saw some kids enjoying the play area, but I thought that after the raw mountains and lochs of Skye, this site was a let down and being almost twice the price we were paying on Skye per night, not quite up to the mark.

We stayed here in one of the hottest weeks so far in Scotland so it made all the difference.

The site was a wee bit out of Oban and down a single road, not much round to go explore No Beach or rockpools which we thought there were, but there are amazing walks and beautiful views over to Kerrera Isle.

We received a nice warm welcome and were given all the instructions, the good thing is you can pitch anywhere we were lucky we went midweek because come the friday there weren't many pitches on flat ground available,

it is well sectioned off with campers in one area tents in another, plenty electric hook ups and good toilet/shower blocks although they could have been cleaned more often especially after grass cutting.

The swing park is just swings could perhaps do with a slide or other plaything, but our kids made their own adventures up on the hill.

The lower tent area is on a hill and a walk up it to the facilities. The back tent area we found much better.

The shop is great the freezer facility a great idea especially if you are staying longer than a couple of nights.

Bit pricey but on the whole a great site.

Just back from a few days at this site.

Previous reviewers have been entirely accurate regarding the poor facilities, but we love the view hence our return visits.

This time however, we encountered a new problem.

On leaving the site we found the already difficult access road gridlocked at the Kerrera Ferry. It seems someone organised an orienteering event on the island without checking parking arrangements. The limited parking at the ferry was overflowing so people just abandoned their vehicles on the verges and passing places. Result total mayhem!

As I could not safely reverse the 1/2 mile to the site, it took nearly an hour of heartstopping manoeuvring to get out. We met the police trying to get in as we left and they were threatening a mass vehicle uplift!

We will still return but please be aware of possible access problems!
