Visited Glendaruel at the end of April. Stayed one night because we didn't get going the day before. We plan to visit again, we enjoyed the campsite a lot, also the local short walks from camp and hope to visit the surrounding area and lovely beaches the next time.

The host Annie was very nice, kind, relaxed and friendly. She helped me source dog friendly walks and walks for my little boys too.

The other campers were also friendly, some having their touring caravan there permanently.

The facilities were very clean, hot water, warm shower cabin. The dish washing area was nice to use, being covered, spacious and shaded in trees. My son's, aged 9 and 6, enjoyed climbing trees, den making, the babbling brook and the park set aside for kids and ball games. There was also a bench near reception with WiFi. They had a fine time and played with the other children. They want to return too.

The site is peaceful, with hills, plenty of trees, little birds and the neighbouring sheep in fields. There are some walks around that dogs can avoid the sheep areas.

Reception has a small shop for frozen meat, milk, odds and ends, sweets and crisps, water. Local eggs are available at neighbours with honesty box.

There is plenty of recycle bins and water taps. Nothing was too far to walk to and plenty of little paths. We had ehu on a hard standing.

A nice place to relax.

Although there were a lot of static homes for rent they were not very close to the tent/camp area and therefore didn't overpower the camp and even seemed like a little village area on the other side of the site in the trees.

Very nice.

This peninsula does not get the same amount of visitor numbers as Kintyre, but if the qualities of this site are typical, then it deserves to get many more.

We were greeted by name - and had a delightful pitch overlooking scurrying red squirrels. There are delightful short walks in the vicinity including the lovely walk up to 'ladies pool' cataracts ( no ladies bathing!).

All site facilities were excellent, with plans to upgrade the adequate toilet block for the 2016 season.

We would certainly include this site on any future visit.

A nice quiet campsite at this time of year and the midges were not yet out in force. Nice grounds in a small valley with high hills all around. The shower block is small with free showers - one gents, and 1 ladies - but is nice and clean. The friendly owner told me to use the men's shower rather than wait for the other one to become free, as there was no-one using it (perhaps the mens/ladies signs could be removed from the doors so that they are available for anyone to use?).

We saw lots of birds, squirrels and rabbits around the site and the sunset reflecting off the hills was beautiful.

Was wanting to come to this site earlier with a caravan but never managed so brought along the tent instead.

Upon arriving the lady who was Ann was helpful got leaflets and guided us to the tent area and advised best place (keep midgies in mind) but was our choice. Anything we needed she was there to help.

We had 2 Adults 2 Kids 6 + 10 and a dog. Thankfully when we arrived on the Monday it was dry we pitched up the tent parts of the ground was a bit soft so never left car beside tent so we never churned up grass but with the Scottish West Coast weather you will never have a firm ground all year but I will also add that this was no means boggy, we had a choice where we wanted to pitch.

The site is nice itself surrounded by loads of different walks and trees all around it's a quite site at night and loads of room for kids to play and great walks for the dogs.

Toilets/shower are a bit dated and maybe bit small but were clean enough and attached was a laundry with a selection of leaflets, books and films. Next to the toilets/shower was a kids wooden climbing frame which was a bit shaky and behind that through a path was swings beside a massive area for balls games or anything else and the back of that was a path which takes you on a walk.

My only downside (if you can call it that) would be that if there was a toilet next to the tent area it's maybe about 3-5 minute walk to the toilet which may not be far but during the night when your desperate or taking kids if your both desperate.

In general great site for a long weekend or a week as loads to do around Dunoon and surrounding area, staff great and friendly, site and toilets clean at the reception there is a shop basic general stuff anything more then need to go to supermarket which Ann will tell you but best thing that I bought was the midgie nets

But the good side was dry when took tent down. Would I go again YES

What a cracking site hid away in argylls secret coast. This is a quiet peaceful very well run site. The lady that owns and runs the site makes you feel very welcome and relaxed. The site benefits from having a lot of experienced caravanners that know how to behave and they are a good friendly bunch. I have been to lots of sites, some I would never go back too, some I was glad to get out of, but after a 6 week stay at glendaruel me and my kids were sad to leave and are looking forward to getting back there, this place is well worth a visit. The site is great and there is a vast beautiful area surrounding it to explore. You will enjoy a holiday there

I last visited this site in Cowal over 10 years ago, and I suggest potential visitors set aside the oldest reviews as they no longer apply.

The house and its courtyard, where Reception, toilets, shop etc used to be are now self-catering, and not part of the site. Reception is in a new curved roof profiled metal unit that matches the one chic camping pod (looking up the glen).

The owner is very friendly and helpful, and easily found. We chose our own pitch amongst the big trees backing onto the field of beef cattle, but the ground was sodden after the rain so even the hardstanding was waterlogged. About half the pitches are seasonals - mostly guys there for the fishing.

The toilets are in what looks like a former army hut; they are clean and fresh, albeit with an oddly eclectic mix of fittings.

The shower (one ladies, one gents) is free, and in a room big enough to take the family. We never had to queue, but the site was quiet due to the wet weather. We didn't need the laundry or play area.

The covered pot wash has picnic tables for tenters, which was a nice touch. The recycling facilities behind it are comprehensive.

The site is totally silent (apart from the cattle lowing) - we slept in both mornings. Pleasant walks (with or without dog) in the woods above the site, past pretty waterfalls and up onto the open hills.

Cowal has enough pottering for a long weekend. Yes, the ferry to the Isle of Bute is pricy but a visit to the remarkable Mount Stuart fills a day, topped off with seal watching on the west coast.

Views down the Kyles of Bute en route to Tighnabruaich are tremendous - it's much closer than Dunoon for essential shopping, or seafood dining, or to admire the yachts at anchor. Benmore Botanics by Dunoon are worth visiting at Rhododendron time.

For larger motorhomes crossing to the mainland rather than drive 2-3 hours round, pre-paid Western Ferries tickets cost less than buying them on the roll-on-roll-off ferry (Western Ferries are more frequent than CalMac.) In addition, the vehicle length for tickets steps up at 5.0 metres. We are 5.3 m long and were advised that next time we should buy *two pre-paid single car tickets (plus the occupants' tickets) from the shops in Dunoon: it's much cheaper than one motorhome ticket.
