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!

We've visited this site a few times - mainly due to the lack of decent (non-club) caravan sites near Oban. The single-track road from Oban is. Less than perfect when towing a caravan. Reception and access to most of the site is up a fairly steep slope. With speed-humps.

The site is in a lovely spot with good views, but the toilets and showers - while clean - are hardly 21st century standard (the block we used looked like it had been built and equipped in the 60's !)

Overall at 19. 50 for 2 of us I felt it was a bit over-priced.

Reviewer: Karenturner 7 reviews from this member

I didn't plan to stay here but missed the sign to the Oban Divers Centre site. I arrived about 7pm, was given a map and told where to pitch. That was it. Everything else I would have had to find out for myself.

I did find a pitch and set up, only to discover that I had pitched beside an EHU took me a while to find it when I was told I was should be elsewhere. I declined to move or pay extra as it was now 9. 50 on a Friday night and was leaving as early as I could the next morning - ferry to catch.

Were there facilities other than the toilet block. If so no one told me. The grass had been cut recently and everywhere you went there was piles of cuttings.

Toilets were ok, dish washing area - ok. I decided not to use the showers, they were carpeted in grass cuttings.

I paid 15 for one night, and on my next visit to Oban paid 25 for B&B. I know what I will do in the future

The view was great but I think that is about all I could say.
