We booked this site for one night as we're travelling up to the Hebrides. Within an hour we decided that we must come back for much longer! The pitches are well spaced and hard standing bordered by well kept grass. The site has huts, pods and tents but all placed very considerately so everybody has privacy. The facilities are very good and the small shop is well stocked. The site is situated on the West Highland Way and near to bus and train links. The train goes past the site but only a few times a day and not late at night. It's actually very quiet as if it tiptoes past the site so as not to disturb anybody. A fab site. We are already planning our return.

This could be an excellent walkers campsite, which seems to be who they are marketing to with their name, facilities, location and restrictions on tent sizes.

The pitches are pretty good - level and not too bumpy. The ground is very stony though, so don't bring bendy tent pegs!

The facilities include a small kitchen with kettle and a small 2 ring hob, washer and tumble drier (5 for a wash and 20 min dry). There is also a drying room for your rain soaked clothes and boots. This is a rare and very welcome feature.

However, in an area that boasts 280 days of rain a year, there is nowhere sheltered to sit and eat. Regarding the previous review that states there is a table and chairs - this used to be the case, but they have been removed. Given that they only allow tiny tents - this is a major problem and forced our group to eat at the excellent Tyndrum fish and chip shop followed by a pint at the pub and an early night.

If rowdy campers really are a problem (as the manager claims) then why not lock the kitchen and power down at 10 or 11 pm? Most walker/campers would have no problem with that as we're generally tired and wanting a good night's sleep before the next day of hiking.

The owners also like the site cleared early - by 10 am. If you use Travel Lite they claim the pick up is at 9-30 am. This is nonsense as the van leaves Milngavie at 9-45. It's a Transit, not a Tardis! Why lie about this other than to make your customers feel unwelcome?

Overall a good site, spoiled by the fact that you feel you are inconveniencing them by camping there!

We booked in for one night but stayed for 3 we loved it that much, quiet away from the busy village road. It is in a great location for walks, low and high level. Small shop on site and really helpful staff. The motorhome pitches are a recent addition to the campsite/ bunkhouse. Very well thought out with all facilities, little touches like doors and curtains in the showers ( which were very very clean ). Small camping kitchen with microwave, two ring hob sinks and seating. The hobbit houses looked fun if you want a change from the tent or van. We have booked in for 3 more days in winter ( open all year). Wifi around the site and analogue tv hook up. This is a great site for those wanting peace and quiet, they only take small tents so no party goers.

Facilities at this site are excellent, with good showers and loos, and a kitchen with dining tables.

It is ideally set up for walkers, and they will only take Very Small tents. The man who booked me in was extremely helpful on the phone, but when we arrived the lady was reluctant to accept our small three man tent, until she realised that I had already had the discussion with the man. This made us feel rather awkward. However the managers were very pleasant the rest of the time.

The village has a pub, eatery, shop and well stocked garage shop.

Lovely setting just below the station running to Oban.

We have just returned from a great weekend at this site, the new motorhome park is excellent, very reasonably priced and spotlessly clean.

The railway station is right next to the sight so trips to oban are easy without moving the motorhome.

The showers are hot and very clean and the owners are really helpful and friendly. Site shop sells milk, juice and sweets etc and further provisions can be bought in the village. Cash machine in village too and the real food cafe is worth a visit for fish and Chips.

We can't praise this site enough and will definitely return in the near future.
