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).

Beautiful coastline & views from campsite of surrounding hills.

This review is for Oban

Beautiful coastline & views from campsite of surrounding hills. Plenty of walks to be had & cycling route leading off campsite. Local pub & Poppies Garden centre both serving beautiful food & drinks. Oban is a short drive with everything on offer in a busy harbour town. Of course also Oban distillery well worth a tour.

Arrived at the site 12.55 and was 3rd in line to check in.

This review is for Oban

Arrived at the site 12.55 and was 3rd in line to check in. Due to length of our unit I blocked the exit drive, put my head around office door and was instantly screamed at to get out and would be called for. If I had not paid in full I would have found another site. Site managers attitude did mellow over the time we were there, but receiving a friendly welcome was minus 10. My other gripe is having to pay for Internet connection and then being informed there is none due to so called weather conditions, it's about time CCC moved into the 21st century WHY can't we add �1.00 to all memberships and be given free internet (that works). Gripe 2, the on site shop opens from 9-10 and 4-6 so when I went to purchase refreshments in the early afternoon it was closed, Rant over, The site is great for long or short walking and across the road to one of the many Loch,s to take in the magnificent scenery. Would I make another visit to this site, probably not, I would more than likely travel a few more miles to another site on the same road.
