What a credit to the C&CC. Thanks to the hard work of all the wardens. They have a beautiful site and the cleanliness of the toilet block is the best I've ever seen, well done folks. Friendly wardens, the site is in great location, very quiet, everyone seemed to be enjoying the site.

There is a small shop with essential, great security with a barrier and access point, a good mix of grass or hard stances, equal number of pitches for tents and caravans, motorhomes

We thoroughly enjoyed the stay

You'll enjoy staying here.

We stopped here for 1 night on our way north and were so impressed that we made it a goal to go back on our way home. The staff are very friendly and helpful and always around when needed. The site is in a walled garden, sheltered from wind and at the edge of Sutherland's Grove, a forest with beautiful walks and cycle tracks. The area around is spectacular with some lovely drives off the beaten track.

The site is very well maintained and laid out with a large and very clean toilet/shower block in the middle. There are level hard standings around the edges and level grassed area in the middle. At reception there is a small shop selling all the essentials (including midge repellent).

The only downside was the midges but a plentiful supply of repellent and anti-itch cream stops this being a problem.

I would highly recommend this site to anyone visiting this area.

We arrived here after being upsetted by another camping in Oban. But the warden and his wife were very, very kind! They took plenty of time to talk with us. We intended to go to Oban, and due to loss of time we expected to be back very late. This was not a problem: after closing hours, the main gate was closed, but a small door was opened. It was very dark though: next time we must take a flashlight with us!

The next day we receive plenty of information about the touristic in the neighborhood.

The camping-site was nice, though there were very many midgets. The toilet blocks are closed during cleaning time, this was a little inconvenient.

We have passed this site for years while staying at a larger site in the area. It is now in our two top sites.

Wardens are so helpful and cheerful they seem to work all hours. The toilets block is one of the best we have used.

It is sheltered and quiet at least at this time of the year when the weather was good for us the birds sang and the wild flowers were spectacular. The proximity for dog walks and the cycle track is great.

The on site shop is useful for basic items nearby Benderloch has a great general store and a garage/ caravan shop which over the years we have made good use of.

The site is absolutely lovely, nestled in a walled garden close to a river (you can fall asleep to the sound of the water flowing!) and the facilities are really good too (it's nice to be able to wash dishes indoors rather than under a lean-to!).

The only downside was trying to pitch the tent. We were told to pitch in the middle of the site next to the shower block however we had an awful job trying to get the tent pegs in because the ground was SO rocky just under the surface.

The Sea Life centre down the road is worth a visit although quite expensive for what it actually is (we managed to get a 4 off voucher from the tourist information at Fort William).

Lovely. Quiet, pleasant and relaxing. The grassed areas are extremely boggy in wet weather so stick to the paths and hardstanding areas. Facilities have now been updated and are fantastic.

The walks around the forest area are great, especially for the dogs.

The information room is very helpful as are the staff. I did notice the kiddies playground and wouldn't think that any parent or child would be too impressed.

The main drawback of this site is the lack of amenities in the immediate area, ie. Shops, pubs, etc.
