Reviewer: Janey47 18 reviews from this member

We stayed here for just one night in appalling weather conditions. The views are simply stunning looking out over the Loch.

The hard standing pitches are extremely narrow and we sank into the sodden grass while entering and exiting the habitation door.

The shower block was freezing cold with no form of heating switched on at all. The showers themselves were ok with reasonable hot water.

I am trying not to let the dreadful weather colour my view of this site but with an outside temperature of only 9 degrees there should have been some heating on in the shower block.

There is a covered picnic area I would think would be useful if you're camping in a tent.

I would return to this site for the views in warmer weather.

This Site exhibits all the good and bad features of C & C locations with the added drawback of needing more attention than the Club seem willing to give.

First the good - as ever, the on site personnel are helpful and knowledgeable and you know exactly what you're going to get in terms of showers and other amenities. In good weather, this is an ideal location to hit the Hills and magnificent scenery of the area. We did not visit in good weather. It can be a long walk to the one toilet block in the rain.

Now for the less good - the dead hand of C & C branding and procedures is everywhere. Not only is there a code to access the Site but another for both sets of toilets and laundry room. Clearly the Club is worried about illicit use of toilets by non members. Unlike almost every other Site we stayed on, there is no free Wifi which we had in even remote parts of Mull.

Toilets are getting a bit tired and in need of painting but I guess there is no budget for that.

This was the fourth year in a row we have stayed a couple of days at this site. We love the views, the peace, the local walking opportunities and the nearby Glencoe visitor centre with its excellent café, shop, free wifi and reliable weather forecasts.

However, the site is looking a bit tired and is in serious need of some TLC. When we were there, 4 out of 8 cubicles in the mens' toilet block were out of order, as were 2 out of 4(?) showers. Everywhere was in need of a coat (or coats) of paint. And why are they so paranoid about outsiders, in this remote place, using the facilities block? It is a pain to have to remember the secret code when one is in a hurry to go. Many sites in much busier places don't bother with this. They have also constructed a fence next to the block, so that one cannot just leave the site on foot, via use of the facilities, without making an annoying little detour.

We stayed at Glencoe C & CC site for three nights in July 2016. The site is simply laid out with adequate hardstanding pitches all around the perimeter road, all with EHU. There is a separate grassed area for tents.

Unfortunately the weather was pretty dire during our stay so we didn’t do as much as we originally planned. There are walks on forest tracks around the back of the site which seem to be associated with the nearby Visitors Centre.

Glencoe village is a half hour walk away along a wooded path parallel with the main road. There is a Nisa store in the village as well as monument to the infamous massacre in 1692.

We took the motorhome offsite one day and went along the A82 to one of the parking area giving access a walk into the Lost Valley where the Campbells hid their stolen cattle. How they managed to get them up there through a rocky ravine as anyone guess! We were also “serenaded” by an enterprising bagpipe player at the car park!

The site itself only has one amenities block which was perfectly adequate but might struggle when the site is full with caravans, motorhomes & tents.

Whilst there is no digital TV reception [at all!] there is a free Wi Fi connection at the café in the Visitors Centre.

Overall a well run C & CC site – a credit to the club.

One of the best sites we've visited, been numerous times over last 3 years as only 1 hour from home. Staff always polite and helpful, great area for exploring. Toilets and showers spot on. Only downside, if you can call it a down side, you need a dish for TV. Not the end of the world ! You can live without TV. An absolutely gem of a site.

Just returned from a wonderful 4 days here. We were met by one of the managers( Maureen ), who showed us to our pitch. She said we would get the best of the sun on the pitch (31) (if it came out) which it did and she was bang on, the caravan was bathed in sunlight for most of the day, we even lit the BBQ and sat out for dinner. The site is surrounded by the most stunning mountain views. It was so relaxing. The site itself is immaculate with lovely planted troughs and boxes throughout. The toilet and sower facilities are warm and very clean, dishwashing and laundry facilities are also available. The site managers Stephen and Maureen are so friendly and helpful. They were available to help or chat anytime, they made us feel so welcome. This was our second visit to Glencoe and we will definitely visit again, it is one of our favourite sites.
