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.

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.

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.

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 cafť, 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.
