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 seadfood 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).

Lovely sheltered site within a walled garden. Very good new shower block. On cycle path; able to walk to pub and well placed for visiting the many local attractions.

We've been on a lot of club sites this year and Oban has got to be the best! The wardens were very friendly and the site and facilities were immaculate. Will have to return in the future!

We found the managers Martin and Ellenor to be very friendly, helpful and with a good sense of humour. As they were the only staff present I assume Martin was the member of staff referred to in previous reviews - he can only be described as large. The site was well maintained and the toilet block was immaculate every day of our visit. The only downside for those with motor homes is the waste water disposal system. This was cobbled together several years ago by a previous manager and the Club has failed to make it a proper service point. This is my only criticism of this site. Perhaps the powers that be will read this and take appropriate steps.

Arrived in the early evening without having booked.

This review is for Oban

Arrived in the early evening without having booked. We live locally and due to good weather decided to spontaneously take the children camping. We were given a cold welcome and because I did not have my membership number to hand, it seemed I was causing excessive work. We requested a camping pitch with hook up, but when shown to the pitch it had been unheard that electric was requested. I got the feeling we were more trouble than we were worth and we decided to leave. Being polite I said the site seemed quiet with people relaxing and my children were looking to run around and I didn't want them to disturb others. I waited outside the gate on the rest of my party, whilst the warden happily discussed me with patrons of the site. My car window was down and I heard the whole conversation (also obvious by them looking towards my car). I ran a caravan site for several years and sincerely hope I never made anyone feel like I was made to feel! Will not return to this site, but use the nice wee, friendly site at Tralee instead.
