Like many, we used this site for a stop-over on our way to Mull.

Bad weather put a dampener on things as the site was a boggy mess, even on the gravel pitches with fine views over to Kerala. As it was busy, the vans were packed in like sardines and despite being so open, it felt claustrophobic. We felt the shower area and washing up facilities were poor but apparently the higher block is the better.

As a convenient location for the early ferry it was OK, but we wouldn't choose to stay otherwise.

As other reviewers have said for a large site not cramped and you choose your own pitch. Ideal for the ferry terminal. A long windy access road but lovely views and plenty of pull in places.

Our second one night stay here and facilities are good - easy to drive over grey water disposal, good elsan point. Large grass area for those on a short stay getting early ferries - ours was a little later but didn't hear a thing despite many people having moved on early.

Would love it to be a little cheaper but it is better value for money than some other local sites and comparable to others with such a large site & facilities to upkeep.

Reviewer: Nessmanuk 10 reviews from this member

The location of this site is superb. Facilities are good and the cost was very reasonable being charged 16 for 2 people in a tent. This compares with the 23 I was charged at Roseview Campsite just along the road where the facilities were not nearly as impressive. There are a number of areas where one can pitch - some obviously nearer the toilet blocks than others but it is great to have a choice of location. The male on reception was friendly and helpful. First time at this site but wont be the last.

We normally stick to Caravan Club sites as you know they are of a high standard but on this occasion thought we would try this site and were not disappointed. No regimental pitches here you choose your spot there is loads of space with fantastic views in a stunning area away from it all but only 2 or so miles from Oban. The site is really well cared for and the facilities spotless and checked regularly. We will definitely be back. Thanks to all concerned we had a brilliant time.

I can only re-iterate the previous comments, very friendly and loved the way you could choose your own pitch, ( wish people would park and walk about to do this though ). There is a hidden secret to this site, if you go through the gate half way up the site and into the field above there is an old Drovers route which takes you up to the top of the hill and the views are spectacular. You can see across Kerrera to Mull and beyond.

We had a fortnight and didn't do half the things we had planned.

Take the ferry over to Kerrara and walk straight to the other side and then South and round to the lovely tea shop. Brilliant.

Stayed for 1 night in a motorhome as travelling to Mull early the next day, arrived in the pouring rain, friendly welcome and told which zones to pitch in, recommended we avoid the grassed areas due to the rain, this however brought its own problems as everyone then crammed onto the hard standings making it feel like a French Aire which is ok when your not paying 20 a night! As we were off early the next day settled down for an early night and given how close we were to each other had a surprisingly peaceful night. I'm sure had the grassed ares been in use it would of been much better. Very clean facilities despite the appalling weather and can get a cab into Oban if you wish to go out to eat in the evening.

Nice location, but some sloping pitches. Facilities good and staff friendly and helpful. Some of the hard staying pitches near to reception are quite cramped. Very handy for getting into Oban albeit using quite a narrow road that has plenty of passing places

Reviewer: Raysmiffy 14 reviews from this member

This is the largest campsite I have ever camped in. Impressively though, as big as it is, the grass is kept immaculate. They use cones to keep tents off the yellowed patches from previous tents, and it seems to work well.

The toilets are cleaned at least three times a day, and I have seen the same guy go around the site picking up any small pieces of rubbish. I get the impression he is obsessive with his work, so you could not accuse the managers of this site as having a complacent attitude.

The site has a good atmosphere for me as I feel I have as much space as I need for my large tent, car and trailer.

The only criticism is that you need to go to the reception area at the gate to pick up wifi, where I think they could extend it by using an extender in the toilet block somehow.

The road to get to the place is a bit narrow, with some morons even using the passing places to park their cars, adding to the tension when towing a trailer or caravan.

One of the best campsites near Oban IMO though, all due to the fact that the staff look like they care and at least try to respect that some of the campers have travelled hundreds of miles to get there.

The site was nicely situated with a nice outlook over the beach. but maybe it was just us but the owner was really grumpy and unfriendly. My husband had a shower and they were filthy, the worst he'd ever been in and people could see in as he was showering and getting dressed, not the best
