A large site situated right next to a shingle beach with good views. Very well kept grounds and good for dogs as there is a disused railway line at the back of site which is used as a dog walk, dogs are also permitted on the beach.

The downside is the lack of taps, this is the first time in over 20 years that we were unable to reach the taps even with two hoses. We noted that a lot of people were going to the showers, taps, toilet dump in the car!

There is a shop on site which is quite well stocked but fresh vegetables and fruit would have been appreciated.

There is a good cafe and another small shop/post office in the next village which is about a 10/15 minute walk. A bus stop outside the site takes you into Oban.

Very well maintained site with stunning views. Staff very helpful and and friendly. This is a large site and our pitch was right on the front with fantastic sea views. Toilet and shower block are spotless.

The only negative thing I could mention was I had to drive to the showerblock and empty the chemical waste as there were non at the far end of the site.

Overall though a brilliant site and I will definitely return

Large 200+ pitched site (120 touring pitches) on gently sloping South facing field with magnificent views over the Firth of Lorn and Isle of Mull. This site has a slightly regimented layout without any screening but all with large pitches and EHU. Direct beech access from site with slipway for boats. The site facilities are clean and modern, and the site has a well- stocked shop. Toilet block is a hike if you end up on the outer edges and most end up using the car to do the loo trip!

No Wi-Fi available and the electric is only 10amps with numerous reminders of site problems relating to tripping supplies and electrical blackouts at peak times with an overload on the system!

Listed as a Caravan Club site, it’s not it is an affiliated site and only offers CC Members a measly £ 2. 00/night/pitch discount. A £ 10. 00 deposit is required when booking (Credit Cards not accepted) and £ 1. 00 of this is charged as a ‘booking fee’. If you have a flat battery whilst on site, a jump start can be provided at a cost of £ 5. 00. Numerous ‘penny pinching’ charges appear on this site together with a shed load of site rules.

On site traffic speed is restricted to 10 mph; this is completely ignored by wardens, site staff and most site users who use the site roads as a race track.

Oban airport is directly to the South of the site, but is only used by light planes so this is not an issue. Benderlock village is an easy 1 mile stroll North of the site with local shop and café/book store.

Overall a good location for touring this delightful part of Scotland and some good walks and bike rides direct from site, but this would be a better experience if the site management had a more friendly policy with customers and examined its petty charges.

Our third visit to North Ledaig, the location takes some beating. I was rather surprised, for the second year running (we visited in May 2013) to be told on arrival that the Gents toilet block was 'not quite ready yet', especially so as our visit coincided with the start of the school Easter holidays and it was quite busy. 5 WCs for a site with over 170 pitches on 30 acres is not really adequate.

It certainly rained whilst we were there and it was noticeable that quite a few folks were driving to use the toilets, not an option with a Motor-Home!

Perhaps there is a prohibition on using paint brushes over the Winter season in Scotland? ;-)

Very friendly staff, as usual, and the shop seemed to have everything in place, even Guardian and Observer newspapers!

The booking-in system is rather Dickensian, requiring a telephone call to the site while the details are hand written and, on arrival, they fill in another A4 form by hand, charming in a way but as both the Caravan clubs have excellent and speedy on-line booking systems perhaps something similar might be an idea?

Well worth another visit despite these small niggles.

This site was recommended to us for the location which if you like a pebbly beach with stunning views this is perfect. We had three types of weather in one day and had a water front pitch. The toilet block is a bit of a trek especially when its raining but it was clean although busy at times.

The seafood restaurant at the Connell bridge was excellent and the walk around the bay when the tide is out is very satisfying. The small airport is next to the campsite and it is more entertaining than annoying, especially when there is a cross wind. A trip into Oban is recommended and the visitor centre at Cruachan Power station is fascinating. The trip into the mountain side to see the power station is a testament to the engineers of a bygone age.

The power is 10 amp but it easy to work within this by watching what is on at the same time.

I would return for the location.

Just back from a weekend at North Ledaig. After being up several times and always rating it highly we were disappointed on this occasion. The gents toilets and showers in the second block were out of commission, this has been ongoing for some time now. In the main toilet block only half the toilets and showers were open in the gents. The 3 tumble driers in the laundry were out of commission. The shop was not well stocked and some items had not been priced yet although this was the opening of the season. We do hope all these problems will be fixed soon as this is a lovely site with beautiful views.
