    Top site for photography

A glorious campsite location at the foot of the Scottish mountains.

Walking boots are a must for campers visiting our Glencoe Club campsite. Surrounded by National Trust for Scotland managed woodland, this is wonderful walking country. The West Highland Way passes within nine miles of the campsite and there are many other low and high-level walks. You can even bag yourself a Munro or two – there are eight within the vicinity of the site.

Whichever of the 102 pitches you choose at Glencoe, you’re guaranteed stunning views of the surrounding mountains. The facilities are excellent and include a laundry, locker room and drying shed.

The eco-friendly Glencoe National Trust for Scotland Visitor Centre is a short walk from the campsite. It has interactive displays, a shop and a café. In nearby Glencoe the Glencoe and North Lorn Folk Museum gives an interesting insight into the history of the area.

Glencoe Activities in Ballachulish offers a choice of 20 activities and tours – from golf and canyoning to rib and Segway tours.

More relaxing pursuits include a ferry ride across Loch Linnhe or embark on what’s regarded to be one of the greatest railway journey’s in the world from Fort William on the Jacobite steam train .

Worth Noting

Please note that Caravans, Motorhomes and Trailer tents will be booked on hardstandings, Club Standard Pitches are for tents only. A satellite dish is required to receive limited TV channels only.

We stayed at Glencoe C & CC site for three nights in July 2016.

This review is for Glencoe

We stayed at Glencoe C & CC site for three nights in July 2016. The site is simply laid out with adequate hardstanding pitches all around the perimeter road, all with EHU. There is a separate grassed area for tents. Unfortunately the weather was pretty dire during our stay so we didn’t do as much as we originally planned. There are walks on forest tracks around the back of the site which seem to be associated with the nearby Visitors Centre. Glencoe village is a half hour walk away along a wooded path parallel with the main road. There is a Nisa store in the village as well as monument to the infamous massacre in 1692. We took the motorhome offsite one day and went along the A82 to one of the parking area giving access a walk into the Lost Valley where the Campbells hid their stolen cattle. How they managed to get them up there through a rocky ravine as anyone guess! We were also “serenaded” by an enterprising bagpipe player at the car park! The site itself only has one amenities block which was perfectly adequate but might struggle when the site is full with caravans, motorhomes & tents. Whilst there is no digital TV reception [at all!] there is a free Wi Fi connection at the café in the Visitors Centre. Overall a well run C & CC site – a credit to the club.

Lovely campsite....great toilet showers and laundry facilities.

This review is for Glencoe

Lovely campsite....great toilet showers and laundry facilities.grass with electric area has large areas of rock underneath. Can't peg tent so we had to relocate. And even then had to reposition pegs due to this. Loved our time here. Great location and the staff were absolutely fantastic and really great with our kids. Shame about no ball games or Frisbees.

This review is for Glencoe

Arrived at Glencoe after a long drive from North Wales to a lovely welcome from the Site Manager. During the week all the managers were extremely helpful. They are disciplined which is good. Facilities are good. Toilets and wash up spotless. Lovely views from the site and absolutely loads of walks in the locality. The National Trust shop and cafe are adjacent to the site which is very useful and handy. The village of Ballachulish is a short walk from the site with a well stocked co-op and other shops and restaurants. No TV which in one way is a blessing; we missed all the EU referendum barrage but after a week we were glad to get back to civilisation!! all in all would go back again.

Arrived at the site on Tuesday 28th June.

This review is for Glencoe

Arrived at the site on Tuesday 28th June. At the camp office I was treated courteously and most helpfully even to the point that I was informed that I was entitled to "pensioners discount" and had my bill amended accordingly. The site was very well laid out and well maintained. Toilets and showers were an excellent facility and very clean. Whilst out, walking my dog; I had a chance meeting with the site manager and his dog. It was nice to be able to let him know that this was one of the best sites that I've visited and what a very good team he had. Glencoe is only 30 minutes walk from the site, along a lovely well made footpath. Lots of opportunities for photography with outstanding scenery and even the odd red deer. The only minor negative of the whole visit was the poor to non existent TV reception. Possibly, sometime in the future; consideration could be given to the installation of "TV plug in points" at some of the hardstandings. Other than this, a very good visit to Glencoe which my dog and I thoroughly enjoyed - I will be back
