We have stayed at this site on four separate occasions in the last two years and will definitely visit again in the future. This site is set in the most scenic location with fantastic views out to sea and the Hebrides islands. Although only basic the toilet and shower facilities are always clean but they could however do with maybe a couple more showers as there are only two in the ladies block in the main camping field. As you can imagine this can be a bit of a pain at busy times. There is a small playpark for the kids but this only has a few swings and not much else. There is however plenty of space for kids to run and play and make their own fun. I would on the whole give this site 10 out of 10. A fab place to go and relax and just forget about everything

A friendly and well maintained site and although big and busy when I visited with my family we were never bothered by noise. There's no bar onsite but a well equipped shop and the although location is about 3miles from Oban with a regular bus running from the site into town.
There is a small playpark, plenty spare ground for the kids to explore and an indoor playroom if the weather's not so good all of which my 8yr old daughter loved.
This was the third time we've visited the site and although there's plenty hiking, hillwalking to pursue and a diving club nearby, our passion is fishing and the site has it's own jetty which offers great fishing for dogfish, mackerel, whiting and many other species which offers endless fun for beginners and more experienced anglers.
This is a site I would strongly recommend to families looking to meet other families, great scenery and endless outdoor pursuits on your doorstep. The only downside was the short opening hours of the shop, lack of showers and one speedbump which scraped everyones exhausts but still 10 out of 10 for me.

Awesome site! The views are amazing. Can be hilly in places so arrive early to get the most level pitch.

Large site and yet didn't have any problems with noise. Nice walk into oban takes about 1 hour if you like hiking.

Toilet blocks weren't amazing but could have been worse.

Good site for access to Oban and area and for getting across to Iona etc

Would definitely visit again.

First visit to this site which is in an excellent location a few mins drive 3 miles from Oban.

Aprox 7 taxi ride back from Oban to site.

Thought the facilities offered good value for money. Whilst on our particular visit we suffered from torrential rain the ground underfoot in the area reserved for tents remained reasonably firm.

As already mentioned in other reviews there tended to be a wait for the showers despite the fact that the field reserved for tents wasn't full. More showers needed.

Minor annoyances throughout our stay ie no hand soap in the wash basin soap machines in toilet block and the hand dryer wasn't wasn't working .Hot water tended to run out when using the allocated washing up sinks.

On balance I would recommend this site as its location is everything.

Lovely campsite, we stayed on the waters edge with a spectacular view of the islands. Oban is only a short taxi ride 6is in to town which is well worth a visit as there are lots of nice pubs and eateries. The onsite shop sells all sorts inc alcohol, the toilet block was cramped and the shower was small.

Lovely site; fantastic views; pick your own pitch; reasonably priced. Showers looked grim but were actually very good - loads of hot water and power!

Weather wasn't the best but really enjoyed a 3 day stay.

Friendly owners; good shop on site. Taxi from site to town very good value.

Went on the 3 island tour - Mull; Staff and Iona. Best value ever! 45 per person which sounds steep but that includes a coach trip across Mull and our driver knew so much about Mull it was unbelievable; a trip to Staffa and Fingal's Cave which is stunning and Iona - the ancient holy island. Weather was awful on the day we went but it was still a fantastic day out.

Oban has lots of pubs; places to eat and shops.

You can fish from the docks - caught mackeral.

If we went back to this area I would definitely be happy to stay on this site again and would recommend it to all.
