Stayed here for the week, after years of wanting to visit. The site did not disappoint, breathtaking location, situated next to the River Coe, surrounded by mountains. Fires are allowed, Which added to the ambience of camping. (i wish more sites allow fires)

The warden was very friendly, hot showers, toilets included in the tarrif. EHU is not available, Which I'm pleased, as it would remove the essence of the site.

The pub is within walking distant, serves good food and drinks. There is a general store in the village. For a big shop, Fort William is a good place and for souvenires.

It is a great place to take the dog, as there are enjoyable walks. Mine thought he was in paradise. So did I.

What a fantastic campsite. I have fallen in love with the place!

Its situated alongside the river coe and the views all round are amazing! real campfires allowed. The warden is great and very helpful.

The facilities are excellent! the clachaig inn is a fab, about a 10-15 min walk from the site, lovely food and great atmosphere!

Its 2 miles from glencoe where there is a great little village shop for supplies.

Will deffo be back :)

Love it! What a lovely atmosphere, welcome and setting. In the evening all the campfires are lit and everyone is chatting. The pitches are spread throughout woodland areas which make the experience a lot more like wild camping. The facilities are spot on, and although there are a few 'rules' signs around, they are humorous and positive. We will be back x

Have used this site many times over the years and love it. The open fires give it a wild-camping feel. Facilities have been much improved in recent years, and the Clachaig Inn up the road has food and weekend entertainment in case you can't be bothered with the cooking duties.

The negatives are that it is renowned for its midges in summer, gets very crowded due to its popularity (as does the pub too these days), and I found the 10 price tag for one person a bit on the high side.

Great location and great people who run this site, I felt as if I have known them all my life, great for dog owners, but it could do with a extra shower and toilet block, it is spotles clean and at a good price it was only 15. 50 a night, if you just want to get away from it all this could be the one.

Having read reviews I wasn't sure what to expect so pitched up in the far corner of the ultra quiet zone right by the river.

I had no issues with noise however it was a midweek stay and it did rain very hard at times keeping away the party people or at least dampening their spirits ;)

The site is picturesque, even breath-taking from a scenery perspective but does feel a little tacky win Hand painted signs and port-a-cabin facilities.

The facilities are very basic and for the price I would expect better considering cheaper sites with much much better facilities. The one thing though that all of those sites can not compete with though is the outstanding natural beauty.

You get the feeling that if the mountains were removed and the river was re-routed. This place wouldn't attract a single visitor, however that is never going to happen, I just wish that the owners would see the potential in creating a destination site rather than a one stop camping hop (they were quite surprised when I told them I was booking in for more than one night.

Everyone on the site seemed to want to find somewhere to charge something up which isn't very camping spirited I know but unfortunately is a symptom of a digital age in which we live. I honestly think investing in a number of EHU points around the site and charging a premium for these pitches would real dividends for the owners and attract a longer term visitor who in turn would then behave better than some of the guests mentioned I other reviews (so they weren't asked to leave early - on a 1 night stay this is no deterrent)

All in all, a very basic site set in an outstandingly beautiful location. I will visit agin but for the surroundings not for the amenities. I hope that the next time I visit I will have something else to return for that is actually within the sites control.
