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).

The atmosphere of the site is quiet and calm, children can play quite safely.

This review is for Oban

The atmosphere of the site is quiet and calm, children can play quite safely. The pitches are around the wall and some in the middle but all had lots of space. The managers were helpful, cheerful and always busy but never intrusive. The facilities were immaculate even though the site was almost full. Walking cycling and dog walking with various abilities were straight out of the door in the walled garden. 2 dog walks both clean to walk when wet Lots to do in the area, big Tesco and other shops in Oban but well stocked site shop, with amazing fish and chips about 20 minutes away. This is such a lovely site we will definitely return.

We had quite a a lot of rainy days during our stay, quite normal. If using a caravan make sure you have booked a hardstanding, grass pitches are very soft and have standing water after heavy rain. Wonderful site.

Enjoyed a great weeks holiday with our 4 children for our first time at Oban.

This review is for Oban

Enjoyed a great weeks holiday with our 4 children for our first time at Oban. As soon as we arrived, we were struck by how friendly the wardens were and were equally pleased by the pitch we had for our large tent. The showers were really warm and the cubicles big enough for a mummy to shower her two youngest children! We found lots to do in the surrounding area with so many castles and of course the pretty forest on the site's doorstep. The seafood shack in Oban is a Must! The midges were relentless and were glad the site shop sold skin so soft. As a purely selfish request, I would like the club to invest in a really good play park for children however, in all other areas, this site is perfect!
