 Staff were very helpful following my late arrival. Site and facilities were up to the normal Camping and Caravan Club clean standard and the pitch was reasonably level and access good only spoilt by some very loud snoring from a nearby tent but that is no fault of the site.

The views around the site were stunning especially when walking to the shower block in the early morning mist.

The only downside was that I was totally eaten by midges, my legs looked like a mass of red spotted bites and some are still visible seven weeks later and this was despite putting what I thought was a good insect repellant.

Would I go back? - not at this time of year and not in a tent and if I had to I would do more investigations into reliable midge protection.

 Another visit to this site as an overnight stop. We booked via the club website and were not disappointed.

The welcome was great, very Covid19 aware and we even got a discount on our prepaid booking as the motorhome we rented was in the privilege scheme.

Facilities were excellent although there were no stools in the showers and the usual mops were missing (Covid19 measures).

Definitely on the list for another visit.

 Nice clean place to stay. It has everything you need to make your stay comfortable and has a small shop.

Plenty of places to visit and the walks are great too, we liked the walks up to Ben Nevis but you need to be reasonably fit for this route.

 We stayed for 1 night in mid May. It was like a trip down memory lane as we used to go there an awful long time ago.

The site is much better laid out nowadays and has good quality hard-standing pitches. The midges are still voracious. Ouch!

The staff were really friendly and helpful, the facilities are quite good but it's a long walk to the toilet block from the far end of the site.

Reviewer: Trevor + Jo 109 reviews from this member

 We stayed here for one night en-route to Skye. For what we needed (late arrival, early departure) the site was absolutely perfect. The camping pitches are gently sloping and sheltered but there are still great views of the mountains.

The facilities were absolutely fine, and the wardens helpful. You will not be able to park right next to your tent but this makes for a nicer feel.

This would make a great base camp for walking around Glencoe. If you like a great pub with good beers and atmosphere, visit the Clachaig Inn about 5 mins drive.

 This site just has everything going for it : location; scenery; walks, climbs and cycle runs; friendly and efficient wardens;

Well-equipped facilities block located discretely in woodland.

Top marks all round.

Reviewer: Soozndave 6 reviews from this member

 Very picturesque site surrounded by the mountains of glencoe and only a mile walk to the village. Was a bit disappointed by the standard of the tent pitches, the ground was very bumpy and boggy in parts and we struggled to find an area flat enough for our fairly large tent.

We moved to the next field which was slightly better but the grass was pretty long and could have done with a cut. There is only one toilet block which is a bit of a trek and it closes at 10. 30 for cleaning, which I felt was a bit early.

Saying that, it was lovely and clean and the showers were some of the best Iíve seen on a campsite. The facilities were limited for a ccc site, you had to pay to use the freezer for ice packs and there was no microwave to use.

Iíve never had to pay to use a freezer before. We booked in for 3 nights but left after 2, the drizzle and long grass combo was soaking us through from the feet up and there was no play area for the kids so they were a bit fed up.

Reviewer: Ellelouise 1 review from this member

 Arrived a bit later than we intended so pitch we got was not the best. Most of the best pitches were taken by a large group from Germany, not that it was a problem.

The site is generally in an oblong area which in the centre is just a bumpy hill where some tents were pitched.

Only one toilet block at the entrance which closed in the morning for cleaning 10. 30 to 12pm‼️

Have to use the disabled family toilet when the block is closed.

At the time I went there was a queue for this one toilet. I asked the cleaner if I could use the toilet in the block but she was not happy at all about it.

Think as this a club site someone needs to review the facilities at this site‼️‼️

Until they build another block Iím afraid I wonít be returning to this site as a matter of fact we had booked 3 nights only stayed one then left to go to Invercoe on Kinlochleven. Much nicer. No code, no fuss, no problems and beautiful views.

Reviewer: Janey47 26 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.

Reviewer: Truediamond 99 reviews from this member

 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.
