The site is two miles from the town centre up a single track road along the water side.

We stayed there two separate nights punctuated by visits to the islands of Mull, Coll & Tiree. The site is in easy reach of the ferry terminal by car or cycle.

On the first night there had been lots of rain and the field was boggy. It was difficult to find a spot which was either not seriously damp or not on a slope.

The toilet/ shower block is basic but functional and clean. Whilst we were there, there were very few people but I would imagine the toilet/ showers not being able to cope with a full site.

On the next night about 3 days later the main field was closed and a small field was being used over the road. This site was too cramped for the number of tents and with the weather it was rapidly turning into mud in places. Cars could not go into the field so gear had to be carried across through a very muddy car park for which you needed wellies. Also, the toilets were a bit of a hike, again through the mud.

To be fair, the site cannot be blamed for the weather however for the price they were charging and the size and condition of the toilet / showers it did not seem good value.

Super views across the water to Kerrera, and up to the hills around the site. Very quiet, at the end of a single track road out of Oban. Does not take bookings - you can only check there is room and hope. Relaxed attitude to pitching, pick your own site (areas designated for tents only, or for motorhomes and caravans only), but it did mean some inconsiderate parking. (For example, one of the motorhome hardstandings with 6 electric sockets was taken up by just two motorhomes in a way that meant no-one else could pitch there, which meant another motorhome had to be pushed off their grass pitch due to the amount of rain that fell. In another example, a huge caravan set up right beside a tiny motorhome when the rest of the field was empty.) There did always seem to be a queue for the showers, but the dog walk in the oak woods was excellent.

Day trip to Mull is essential, get ferry and the wee train and entry to Torosay Castle all in one ticket. It's 4 pounds in the all-day carpark by the quay or free to park by the sports pavilion at the north end of town (but a 20 mins walk).

Arrived expecting to stay 1/2 nights, stayed 4! Lovely, peaceful site, plenty room for kids to run around, play badminton, footie and frisby.

Shop great for picking up basics and my kids (aged 12 and 13) loved the games room which gave me a little bit peace to relax and have a read.

Excellent for scenery and wildlife.

Could do with more showers especially in block behind shop, nearly always had to wait but at least it was always hot!

Thought price was a bit steep, 16 a night for a tent, 1 adult and 2 children but as it was the first campsite on our holiday didn't have anything to compare with til later.

Great site within easy reach of the beautiful town of oban,easy access from the town.The site is basic with toilets in all areas,with showers, hot and cold water at all times.

What I liked was I didn't have to book 3 months in advance just to get a pitch.

If I was to change anything I would put a road all the way to the bottom of the camping field as it was a little bit muddy after 3days of rain

First time at this caravan park and will definitely be coming back. Staff very friendly and laid back, we picked our own spot overlooking the water and islands - an absolutely stunning view! It was a relaxation trip for my wife and I, and we had the most blissful 2 days, didn't want to come home!

Site is approx 2.5 miles from Oban, we walked it in around 30-40mins. Oban is bustling with loads of pubs/bistros/cafes not to mention the numerous shops.

Plenty of walks to do from the beginner to the expert, and various boating trips available if you wish. There is also a scuba diving centre on the way to the caravan park.

The site itself has an enviable location, toilet facilities were basic but clean and functional. Just watch out for the (in)famous midgies, we made the mistake of wearing shorts - oops! We were there as a couple but even before the school holiday time there were plenty of families and kids running around enjoying themselves. There is also a shop on site for essentials.

All in all, I would highly recommend this site to anyone, and will most definitely return in the future.

I would recommend this site to anyone who is thinking about camping around the oban area. The site itself is very well maintained and tidy,with more than enough room to cope with a large amount of tents.The toilet blocks are a little on the small side for the amount of tents but they were always clean.We were here with our two kids who had a great time and it wasn't long before they had made friends with other children and they could play safely around the

Site without any worries. Oban is only a couple of miles away with lots of things to do and see and some excellent places to eat.One of the reasons we picked this site was that it was very close to the Puffin Dive Centre and to check out its' facilities for my local dive club in the northeast of Scotland.I wouldn't recommend that divers,campers or anyone for that matter vist this place due to the most unwelcoming attitude of the owner. Apart from this one incident the people on site and in the town of Oban couldn't have been more friendly.
