Reviewer: Trevor + Jo 72 reviews from this member

We turned up on a wet and windy afternoon, drove up passed rows of static caravans, and found a unexciting wet, open field with little character. The owner arrived and asked for 16 a night for 2 adults and a tent. To be honest, we sat for an hour debating if we would stay at all. The forecast was wild and at least the site is sheltered enough so when the showers abated, we pitched by the track side.

Wash block is adequate. The showers cost another 1.

The Tayvallich Inn, situated at the entrance, is a fantastic local and the food is amazing and very good value. The views around the harbour are beautiful and there is a small local shop. Nearby you will find nature trails through historic oak woodland and a beach. The chapel at Keills is full of Celtic stone work. We could have spent a whole week exploring. Whilst here, must see places are the Crinan Canal and the Kilmartin Cairns and standing stones.

With a bit of investment, this site could be a lot better.

Had a lovely two night stay here, clean facilities, 1 for a hot shower, basic but all we needed. There is a lovely pub at the entrance to the site with real ale and a good mostly seafood based menu. Also a nature reserve within walking distance where we enjoyed a full days walking, there was also an art trail and kids trail.

Lovely site and location. Keep it a secret!

I was a bit apprehensive having read some previous negative reviews but now realise that those same reviewers were probably disappointed that Tayvallich doesn't have a 24 hour Tesco or a dual carraigeway leading to the village :)

Yes, facilities are limited but perfectly adequate and clean. Very welcoming and helpful owner. 18 for caravan, 2 adults + hook-up. I was charged 29. 50 at a site in the east for exactly the same without the wonderful location.

Only suggestion would be to move bins from front to side of toilet/shower building and tidy up front. I guess a basic structure could be erected to cover washing up area.

We'll be back.

Reviewer: Photoman02 1 review from this member

As a regular caravan near for nearly 20 years I had the pleasure of staying on this site in one of their static caravans which was superb.

Out of curiosity I looked at the touring area and was quite surprised after reading some reviews.

This site is in an outstandingly beautiful area, the pitching area is natural to suit the area, the showers now run for 15 minutes, there are also two camping lodges.

Rory and his wife keep this site so natural it is lovely.

The village Inn and shop have all you need and the local residents are all so friendly.

Visit this site it is all about camping and caravanning should be

If you want somewhere immaculate with every mod con in perfect order then perhaps you won't like Leachive. And it might be crowded at times as it's a beautiful location.

We were there in late August, after the Scottish school holidays were finished, and the site was full enough to be sociable but plenty of space. Usually we dislike seeing static holiday homes on a site but the layout was spacious and relatively informal which made them much less of an eyesore.

We loved it and stayed a day longer than planned. It's a lovely peaceful location but right in the village and very handy for the pub, shop and cafe. The camping field doesn't have a clear view of the loch but it's in an attractive valley and you only have to stroll a short distance to see the whole of Tayvallich and its beautiful bay full of boats spread out.

It's a brilliant location for cyclists, and lots to interest you in the area including Crinan and historic Kilmartin Glen.

The facilities are fine for a simple campsite, the shower is a bit of a swizz as you don't really get enough time for shampoo AND conditioner for your pound. The high price probably reflects the stunning location.

The owner is very relaxed and friendly and we felt very welcome, we met some very interesting people on the site, it probably attracts a different kind of camper or caravanner than some of the bigger, more organised places.

We have visited this site for a number of years. I have always found it to be excellent and Roly very helpful. The shower / toilet block are a little dated but other than that the site is excellent. Never over crowded.

We have camped there and also stayed in the micro lodges.

The surrounding area is just stunning. A short walk to Taynish nature reserve. The best thing about Tayvallich though is the Tayvallich Inn which specialises in seafood. Great food and a great atmosphere.

I have read the other reviews talking about the views from the camping area. In my opinion that is being very picky. The views from the Caravan site / Tayvallich Inn are stunning.

I am a regular visitor and will continue to be a regular visitor to this beautiful part of the country
