I booked ahead so was expected. I arrived with my 2 grandchildren and we were immediately welcomed. The staff were fantastic and found time to ensure we were comfortable.

Great spaces for motor homes.

Good facilities

The surroundings were great. Lots for the children to do and I will definitely be back

The site is signposted on the main road, follow the road down and towards the end the road bears right and you see another sin for the camp (we thought we had missed a turning).

Campervan pitches are well spaced, level and hard standing with ehu. Loos and showers clean if old, water is hot and pressure good. Water fill is well placed and there is a grey drain but not a drive-over empty. Wifi is included in the price as is a tv socket.

There is an under-cover area with benches for campers to use and several hobbit type huts as well as plenty of room for tents to pitch.

It's a 5 minute walk into Tyndrum where there are several places to eat and a couple of shops. For us its a place to pass throuh but can see the attraction of using it as a base as well placed for many attractions that are an hour away by train or car.

We paid 20 for 2 adults incl ehu, wifi and showers.

Intended one night on way up west coast, stayed for three.

Facilities are really good, and the site is just a nice size, and a five minute walk into village.

The owners are very helpful and encourage a lovely quiet and peaceful atmosphere. For those with tents everything is there for them, two lovely grassed areas. For motorhomes, hard standing with a grassed area, and electric hookups, also Free Wiffi, which you do not get with club sites.

For those with dogs, lots of good walks from site, also near train station for either Fort William or Oban.

We will definitely be back.

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.
