We booked the site on the hope it would be quiet and away from traffic noise, which it is. We put our small tent on top of the hillock by the flag pole and had this to ourseleves for the whole stay. The location is really stunning, feeling well away from it all, yet really quite close to town.

On the other hillock by the fixed barbecue is a shed with tables and benches for small tent users to sit.

Previous posts have said there is no phone reception, but I had no problem texting on site. The site wifi only really works close to the reception building.

Showers, etc all fine, although you might have to queue when the site is full, as only two in each loo area plus one for the disabled. If I'm being really picky, I'd like to have a more powerful shower with a wider head, as on a cold wet day, you want to be able to ensure all of you is in the hot water flow!

We came by train and bike and used the old Glenshellach Road out of Oban which has been blocked off to cars, but not bicycles. (Cars have to route via the main A85 Soroba Road and the hospital. ) That of course means there is very little traffic, but do expect to push laden bikes up the steep hill.

Without our bags and the tent, it was no more than 10 minutes to ride into town, the large Tesco store being easily accessed en route. Coming back out we preferred the Gallanach Road via the Sound of Kerrera which gives you all the hill climbing at the campsite end. This road includes a gate, which is another reason there is almost no traffic past the site.

In Oban, an excellent place to eat your take out fish and chips is the park by the harbour lighthouse on the Ganavan Road (which heads north out of town to the Ganavan beach). This is perfect for watching the ships and gives a view over to Mull. I'm sure this makes the chips taste better.

For brunch, Roxy's Cafe (Combie St) was excellent. Good coffee, nice porridge and excellent value breakfast buns with bacon, sausage and egg or black pudding. Note it doesn't open until 09:00.

Great little site, tidy and peaceful. Toilet/shower blocks are clean and tidy, plenty of hot water and socket for hairdryer /straighteners. Laundry and drying room if needed reasonable cost. Hard standing pitches good. Motorhome services and plenty of water points around the site. If you don't fancy the walk back from town a taxi is around £7. Will definitely use this site again.

This is a very well kept site situated on top of the hill about 2 miles from Oban, As our visit was in March only the disabled toilet / shower was in use which was clean and warm. It must be one of the most peaceful sites we've ever stayed on all you could hear were birds and the water in the stream that runs through the site. There's a nice kids play area too. I would not recommend accessing the site from the road past the ferry as its very narrow and the site entrance is at a 180' turn in the wrong direction (had to do an 8 point turn to get through the gate) There is no TV or phone reception but the EHU's have TV aerial points on them. A nice place to spend a few quiet nights

Just back from here yesterday and it was our first time in a campervan and to a camp site for that matter, anyway we feel it was what we needed as the owners were so helpful and we could not be looked after better.

We were just going to spend one night but ended up staying three. The facilities were good showers, toilets, kitchen with fridge and freezer, microwave, kettle, and two sinks with hot water and a washing machine, also internet access, a good digital television signal just one thing it maybe a good thing NO phone signal.

All in all we really enjoyed the experience and have caught the bug, we will definitely be back to this site

This is our second stay at this site it's really handy for town and ferries. We love the area especially the green seafood hut on the harbour

We cooked fresh mussels and langoustines. Intend to come back later in the year. The owners are really friendly and welcoming. We went cycling along the coast road to town and visited the bridge over the atlantic

The local Wheatherspoons pub is really nice.

Reviewer: Arniesdad 14 reviews from this member

This is an excellent site for easy access to the ferries - Oban can become choked with traffic at times so using this site the night before will ease the stress of catching the ferry! The site is easy to find, just follow the signs to the ferry terminal and then the campsite signs until taking a left hand turn at the branching of roads (the sign here is rather small). The site itself is in a lovely situation in a small valley and is well-kept with level pitches, both hard standing and grass on two levels. The owners are friendly and the facilities OK although the showers were a bit disappointing on a cold early morning. For active walkers, the site would be good for a long stay - it is quite a long, but attractive, walk in to Oban. Prices are average but this is the place to stop for early morning ferries
