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 is a well placed site for cycling as it is literally on the Caledonian Way cycle path.

This review is for Oban

This is a well placed site for cycling as it is literally on the Caledonian Way cycle path. It also has some spectacular local walks and other nearby attractions. This truly is a gem of a site and Steve and Maureen should be congratulated on their enthusiasm, commitment and customer care skills. We will definately be returning.

Have had two lovely weekends here this year (May and August) while visiting friends nearby.

This review is for Oban

Have had two lovely weekends here this year (May and August) while visiting friends nearby. Always a lovely welcome and, as a parent camping alone with two young children, Stephen and Maureen made my stay as easy as possible (the coffee offered while trying to pack up and entertain 2 bored boys was very much appreciated!) Facilities are clean and well maintained. Site is well sheltered with being in a walled garden - great not to need the windbreak but it also means there's no breeze to disturb the midges (insect repellent a must) We'll be back next year

This site is 13 miles outside Oban situated in a Victorian Walled Garden.

This review is for Oban

This site is 13 miles outside Oban situated in a Victorian Walled Garden. The site itself is very nice. Great walks through woods to a waterfall next to the site. A good base for exploring as long as you don't mind a drive. There is no local pub or grocery shop- go prepared. Only negative was the laundry. This closed at 7pm. I don't understand why it closed so early as surely everyone wants to do laundry in the evenings so that the days are clear for having fun on your holiday! Of all the 7 C&CC sites we have visited in the last 3 weeks this was the only one which enforced this. (This may be a minor and irrelevant point to most people)

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.
