My wife and I stayed here in a 3-man tent for 3 nights at the end of July and had a fantastic weekend. If you want a site with a view, secluded location and plenty of wildlife then this is the one for you.
The site itself is affiliated with the Camping and Caravan Club. It limits itself to no more than 5 caravans/campervans plus an unspecified number of tents so will never be busy. The toilet/show block is small but adequate, especially given the limited numbers on site, and was kept spotless when we were there. The only minor fault I could find at all with the site was that the shower cubicle was quite dark, being stuck in a poorly lit corner. The site is basic, apart from the toilet block the only other real facilities are a washing-up sink, the usual water taps & disposal points and some picnic benches (the nearest shop is in Lochaline). Electric hook-up is available but we didn't use it.
The site is gently sloping grass, with some low hedges, which runs down to a pebble beach on the Sound of Mull, and is bounded on one side by a stream. I don't think you could pick an area to pitch that wouldn't have a view across the water to Mull.
As for the surrounding area, well it's what you could safely call rugged and remote. Lochaline is the nearest village, and that is 4 miles along a single-track road (and there's a lot of single-track to even get to Lochaline itself). Mull can be visited by taking the ferry from Lochaline, and is well worth it for the fantastic scenery. We went to the area primarily for the wildlife and weren't disappointed. We lost count of the number of Golden Eagles we saw (including an 'incident' where we followed 3 of them along a forestry track on our bikes about 20ft behind them until they cleared the trees), as well as a number of Sea Eagles on Mull. The crowning glory though was watching an otter (2 at one point) for about 2hrs fishing in the water just off the campsite.
We enjoyed it so much we're considering returning with our caravan despite the long stretches of single-track road to get there. There were at least 2 caravans on the site when we were there so if they can do it then so can we.
Beautiful setting, glorious views over to Mull. Now a Caravan and Camping Club Site from May 2008. Only allows up to 5 vans or motorhomes at a time. Must be members to stay.
1 shower for males and 1 shower for females. Toilet blocks spotlessly clean,plenty of hot water. Site is well looked after. Ideal site if you want to go walking in Morvern. No shops or pubs nearby. 4 1/2 miles to Lochaline which has a general store, post office and ferry terminus for the Isle of Mull. Single track road. (B489). Helpful and friendly owners. Lots of midges!
Fiunary is on the Sound of Mull. Most pitches have views over the water to the mountains of the Island of Mull. From our 'van we watched dolphins, seals, otters, fishing boats, yachts, ocean bulk carriers, cruise ships, buzzards, light aircraft - if it floats or flies it'll probably appear off this camp site eventually. The view cannot be bettered. Take your telescope.
It's a sloping grassy site in two distinct areas, but level pitches can be found for motor-homes. A few hook-ups are available if required. At the bottom of the field is a private stony beach with slipping facilities for small boats. Controlled camp fires are allowed on the beach.
This is a tranquil, peaceful and secluded site. If you want to make noise go somewhere else - please. The owners like to keep the site as a hide-away, and demand behaviour to suit, yet they're very friendly and helpful.
Facilities are basic, but kept very clean. Both M & F each have 2 WCs, sinks and a free hot shower. Water is from a tap and the site has chemical disposal. Mobile and TV reception is minimal.
Access is from Lochaline about 5 miles along a typical Scottish highland road - very narrow and twisting but with plenty of passing places. The site is ideally placed for a stop-over for the Lochaline-Fishnish ferry.
