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 review is for Oban

This site is in a good position for Oban and ferries to Mull/ Iona and the Isles as well as North to Fort William and Glen Coe. The Argyle way is highly recommended. Buses are both to Oban and Fort William outside the site. Lots of good eateries. Particularly recommend the Holly Tree near Ballaculish - special treat with fabulous views. The managers are very helpful and supportive but not intrusive. The site itself is well laid out and the managers coped well with the amount of rainfall we had this month. The only downside initially were the Midgee- until we found the Mossi hood - sold in the on site shop and smudge spray - recommended on the Scottish midge website.so don't let it put you off a truly wonderful and varied area of Scotland

First time in motor home. Made very welcome on arrival. Shower facilities kept very clean.

This review is for Oban

First time in motor home. Made very welcome on arrival. Shower facilities kept very clean. There are some good & clearly signposted walks next to the site; our dog loved it. A national cycle route passes around the site and gives access to a lovely safe circular ride around Loch Creghan. It's not difficult, about 6 miles on a quiet road (we only saw two cars and they were parked!) It finishes near the Creghan Inn which serves good food & ale. They were dog friendly too. There is also a circular cycle route to Apinne Port, partly off road partly on quite road. The site is some distance from Oban but the bus stops across the road from the entrance. Loved our stay here and will definitely return.

Lovely sheltered site within (I think) walled garden of the Sutherland estate. Handy for Oban.

This review is for Oban

Lovely sheltered site within (I think) walled garden of the Sutherland estate. Handy for Oban. Great woodland walks - some fascinating geology along the stream there (through dog walk gate whether or not you have a dog!) a couple of nice caches in the woods for geocachers . Mobile phone (O2) reception non existent but wifi good As always wardens friendly and facilities good and clean. Only downside was the midges
