Very nice site which is centrally located for Fort William, Oban, Glencoe etc.

A very friendly greeting on arrival by the staff (who are all family). They are very helpful too.

Pitches are all a good size though you will definitely need rock pegs for the hard standings. All have nice views of the surrounding hills and there is easy access to good local walks.

The toilet block is modern and immaculate. It is heated and there is plenty of hot water. There is a 50p charge for the hairdryer. Only comment here would be that there may be queues during busy times but then that can happen anywhere. The site was quiet when we were there so that wasn't an issue. One of the best toilet blocks around.

Wi-fi is available for a small charge which goes to charity.

Dogs are catered for in a large field at one end of the site.

Not much in the way of shops nearby so go stocked up.

All in all, a good site which we would have no hesitation returning to or recommending.

The cleanliness of the smart shower and toilet blocks (a huge priority for us) are first class, the owners are very welcoming, extremely helpful and friendly,

the scenery is fantastic and the site is a perfect base to visit Fort William and Oban. A recent visit at Easter weekend assured us that nothing had changed.

The pitches are large enough to allow you to pitch a large tent and park your car next to it. Our pitch for a large five man tent (Outwell Oakland XL)with electric hook-up (10 amp) and car, cost 19. 00 pounds per night.

There's a kitchen with washing up sinks, washing machine, drier, kettle, toaster and microwave oven.

The owners also require that noise is kept to a minimum from 10.00pm. To 08.00am. And for those of you with children, I'm sure you will welcome this.

There are three new additions to this site. Two of which are great little camping pods which are fully equipped with everything you need.

All you require is a sleeping bag! And the third addition is the most beautiful Old English Sheepdog puppy called Casper who just loves to visit everyone with his owner. Don't worry if you're not a dog person. He is kept on his lead at all times.

Will we return to this campsite?. definitely

Had a wonderful few days at this brilliant campsite. The owners are so friendly and cheerful and really do go out of the way to help with erecting tents for beginners. The facilities are great for tenters with a really good 'campers kitchen'. We are new to tenting and went to Achindarroch on the recommendation of our friends who have been before. We would definitely go back to Achindarroch again and certainly recommend it to anyone who wants a friendly unassuming site with beautiful views and walks. Don't pass by, Visit once and you'll go back again and again.

We stayed at this campsite for 3 nights it was brilliant the weather was great and the campsite is as it says on the website which isn`t always the case. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The toilets and showers are clean and very well kept.

We will definitely be back and will recommend this site to friends and family.I have stayed in the area before but had never stayed in Duror we had always just driven through on our way to Benderloch but very glad we did.

The kitchen facilities are good and include a fridge and freezer which was great as the weather was warm and it meant we could freeze our ice blocks.

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.
