Overview

Enjoy the beauty of Scotland's west coast and islands from our campsite in a walled garden.

Our Oban Club campsite on Scotland’s west coast enjoys a beautifully secluded location hidden in a glorious Victorian walled vegetable garden. The sheltered, level campsite is next door to Sutherland’s grove, a Forestry Commission woodland criss-crossed by colour-coded walks and cycle paths. Opposite the campsite is a marina with a little beach you can walk along.

This well-maintained, 75-pitch campsite has excellent, modern facilities including a parent and child room, washing up area and a newly refurbished toilet.

There’s a sandy beach at nearby Benderloch and the wonderful family friendly Ben Lora cafe and bookshop comes highly recommended. Take the path opposite up to the summit of Beinn Lora and you'll be rewarded with fantastic views across to Mull.

Oban, known as the seafood capital of Scotland, is 13 miles to the south of the campsite. The town is renowned for the variety and quality of seafood landed in the harbour, not surprising there are numerous great seafood restaurants in and around the town centre. Oban also boasts its own malt whisky distillery and several local micro breweries.

You can take a ferry from Oban to the Western Isles, or visit Dunollie Museum and Castle and the Oban War and Peace Museum.

Further south, the island of Easdale is well worth a drive for the breathtaking views over the Firth of Lorn. 

Please note that there is a height restriction at site entrance (arch) of 3.4m ( 11ft 2in).

Booked the site as a base to explore the islands from Oban.

This review is for Oban

Booked the site as a base to explore the islands from Oban. It's a few miles out from Oban, but as long as you factor in time, it's worth it to return to such a peaceful spot. I requested a quiet pitch as my son has ASD and that was accommodated perfectly. Stayed three nights but could happily have stayed longer. Wouldn't change a thing - well maybe the weather and the midges, but hey, it's Scotland after all!! Fab site - will definitely be back.

This review is for Oban

Although the site is headed Oban it actually is situated in Barcaldine which is half way between Oban and Ballahulish on the A82, the site sits back off the main road inside a '12 Foot Walled Garden' which used to belong to 'Barcaldine House many years ago. With its forrest walks and the tarmac'd cycle way between Oban and Fort William then this is the site for you if you like to get out and about. I can honestly say that this site has got to be one of the best sites that I have ever stayed at during my 28 years of caravanning. I gave this site five stars in this review and if I had the chance I would have given it more, the site and its facilities were immaculate and the wardens couldn't have been nicer, they certainly work hard for their money especially Maureen and Steve (Head Wardens). Maureen even takes tea & biscuits to campers as she knows that they can't access a kettle as easily as caravaners and they always welcome a cuppa whilst setting up their tents. If I could nominate a site for an award then it would have to be Barcaldine, well done to Maureen and Steve and their colleagues for looking after us. My wife and I can't wait to go back.

Set in what must have been a walled garden close to a forest walk & stream.

This review is for Oban

Set in what must have been a walled garden close to a forest walk & stream. Not too far for access to Oban, Glenco & Fort William. Close to an otter sanctury which we were not so impressed with but would be a nice visit for children.
