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).

Great welcome by the wardens, everything well explained. Nice site in great condition with a very clean and efficient WC/shower block, very impressed with my first experience of a CandCC site.

Beautifully flat HWE's so no levellers needed. Ablutions first class.

This review is for Oban

Beautifully flat HWE's so no levellers needed. Ablutions first class. Dishwash clean; modern but deep & over-sized sinks wholly inappropriate & awkward); as usual, poorly-designed slippin' & slidin' draining boards without draining racks. Lack of phone signal meant I was unable to book anywhere else for my trip home to Southampton. Tried three times to use the C&CC's website to get into Barnard Castle: signed-in etc but it kept telling me it couldn't take my booking because I wasn't signed-in!!! Easier to use Caravan Club website, Brit Stops or just wing-it! Got fed-up with the staff's ill-trained dog barking every 5 minutes but luckily a family emergency meant I had to leave around 3pm, one night early. Drove the 700-odd mile homeward evening and overnight (with plenty of breaks). Won't be back to Oban unless they upgrade their status from dog-friendly to either (a) no dogs at all, or (b) only disciplined, well-trained dogs and owners. I doubt the radio or phone signals will improve though but the Caravan Club's website works when the C&CC's website doesn't - and there's always Brit Stops.
