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).

This was a lovely site and the photos don't do it justice.

This review is for Oban

This was a lovely site and the photos don't do it justice. It is in a lovely location, close to forest walks which are ideal if you are dog owners like us. The site has everything you need and the site managers were friendly and helpful. There is an on site shop and the toilet/showers were kept very clean. The surrounding area is worth exploring. We would highly recommend, Appin, Stalker Castle, The Pierhouse Restaurant, The nearby Ben Lora cafe & bookshop and if you are down the south side of Oban the National Trust garden at Audraine and The Loch Melfort Hotel are well worth a visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Oban and are already planning to go back soon. We will definitely be going back to this site.

We stayed here as a stop of on our way up to the north of Scotland.

This review is for Oban

We stayed here as a stop of on our way up to the north of Scotland. Secluded site in a peaceful walled garden with access to lovely woodland walks direct from site. Wardens friendly and even opened the shop for me when closed. The amenity block deserves more than 5 stars, you wouldn't get these facilities in most hotels. I even shared a picture on social media as I was so impressed. Lots of space around pitches.

The shower block was new and lovely and clean, facilities were first class.

This review is for Oban

The shower block was new and lovely and clean, facilities were first class. The site is situated in a walled garden so was nice and sheltered. We had our dog with us and there were two dog walks available immediately through gates in the walls, one through a beautiful forest with trails for differing abilities and one along a footpath. There was a cycle path directly opposite the campsite. We will certainly be revisiting this site next time we are in Scotland
