Chose this site due to there being no turning away as we weren't sure where to stay, reception very friendly and helpful, we were able to pick our own pitch which was great, we stayed in the top field with electric with a stunning 360 view and £18 a night for a tent, 2 people and electric. Very laid back site but basic standard rules which are pretty common sense. Nice walks from the site and 2 miles out of Oban with a very scenic drive/walk into town. Oban itself is very pleasant with a tesco, petrol station and usual shops and restaurants. Very interesting WWII lookout tower which although fenced off, is worth a look.
Now onto the toilets - I'm very fussy about toilets when camping and will only stay on sites with good clean facilities - these toilets were clean, but very dated, the showers on the other hand really need an overhaul - hot water, but just a dribble, I have very long hair and washing it took an absolute age (not good when there are people waiting), clean-ish but paint peeling on the ceiling and mould - and a duck board to stand on which I wouldn't dare move for fear of what was underneath.
That said, I would return to this site, as the location, the views and the laid back manner of the site were worth putting up with the less than adequate showers.
What a fabulous site. We got to choose our pitch. There are a variety of pitches from grass to hard standing. We chose grass which was fairly flat. Plenty of open space.
The toilet block was clean but a little dated. The shower cubicle in particular was too small. The drinking water was disturbingly yellow although a sign assures you that it is fine.
The location is superb. We cycled to Oban, took a ferry to Mull, Iona and Staffa. We even went scuba diving at the nearby dive centre.
The staff were very friendly and the shop was good too. The booking system could be updated which would speed things up a little. We stayed longer than originally planned which wasn't a problem as the site is deceptively large.
We had only planned to spend one night here, but it was such a wonderful spot we stayed for a second. Had a ferry to catch, or would have stayed longer! The site is ideally located for the ferries to the islands.
Great location just outside Oban on a small hill overlooking the sea & the island of Kerrera - wonderful views! 10 minute cycle into Oban - a lovely town with a wide range of shops - Tartan Souvenirs, ice cream, outdoor gear, plus restaurants, some high street names such as Boots & Superdrug. We had a lovely lunch on the quay at the Ee-Usk restaurant - delicious local fish & shellfish & good service - a real treat & the sun shone!
The campsite is larger than you think but this is not a criticism - it means that there are a variety of places to pitch and could be very useful in bad weather. There are grass fields for tents & campervans, static caravans, a level area overlooking the view with hook-ups, a lower grass field, hardstandings, and chalets too!
Good shop selling basics plus fresh rolls, wine selection & frozen items also postcards, newspapers.
Friendly owners let us take a look before we chose our pitch which is much appreciated. Showers & loos were clean & tidy, not modern but they did what we needed them to do.
Dogs welcome & there are great walks from the site to the hills at the back, giving wonderful views. Cattle & sheep on the hills - keep your dog under control.
( Keep an eye out for the beautiful chickens on site - they pop up all over the place - and their multicoloured Tobermory inspired coops). I would say that it was child friendly as there was a playground, and space to run & play. The road is very quiet, so you can walk down to the waters edge to see what you can find.
Bottom field just by the gate facing down the Sound of Kerrera glorious sunshine views astounding, toilets clean could do with more showers. Toilets were a bit of an uphill trek, shop stocked basics staff are friendly and helpful. Didn't use the playground but looked nice, campers kitchen gas hob didn't work but microwave did a mean baked tattie, campers room has tv and powerpoints handy for charging mobile phones etc, a pool table and football table campsite could do with makeover but staff were helpful and views made for a really chilling week(we needed the exercise of the toilet trek cos we just lazed and watched the boats go by). Will be back
My wife and me comes every year, and always seem to pitch up on top, where the view is spectacular, friends who have seen photos want to live there. Lol
Its the best campsite i know, the shower block isnt the best, but it works.
Their shop that serves everything, friendly people all around, oban is just awesome, we cant wait till july, coming for a week., get our food at tesco in town, what more can a man want? Lovely campsite. 10/10 a must see!
Beautiful campsite and friendly welcome. Good to choose your own pitch! Intended spending 1 night here before catching ferry on 24th but as ferry was cancelled we ended up staying 2 nights. Loved the site and helpful staff. Only negative was the showers. They need a revamp and the water pressure is non existent. A dribble rather than a shower. Also think if the site was busy there would not be enough showers and toilets. Other than that though it is a great site. Lovely dog walk through bluebell wood and fantastic views. Spent our first night on hardstanding then second night decided on a grass pitch in quiet corner.
