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).

Due to lack of internet we didn't realise this site was so far out of Oban.

This review is for Oban

Due to lack of internet we didn't realise this site was so far out of Oban. We would have preferred to stay nearer town to access the ferries. There's a lovely wood right next door - great for walking the dog. There doesnt seem to be any access to the coast. Our pitch was given to someone else for our second night - we moved to another one but then we didn't know if we had taken someone else's. This shouldn't happen. Overall not a great experience I'm afraid. And of course the midges were out in force.

It's a pity the site is so far from Oban.

This review is for Oban

It's a pity the site is so far from Oban. T We were disappointed with the Marina across from the site which is in effect a building site with large rubber rings on the beach for presumably future occupation by fish. There is a Premier store a camping shop and a small cafeteria about five minutes away by car. The forest walks are excellent with highly impressive waterfalls only minutes from the campsite. Great place for dog walking. The toilets showers washroom etc are fresh and new. Showers could be slightly hotter.

I took my daughter (6) camping for the first time.

This review is for Oban

I took my daughter (6) camping for the first time. The campsite is quite a bit outside Oban but we actually really liked this. We were made to feel most welcome by Maureen who helped us check in and recommended where we should pitch our tent so I can watch my daughter play. The weather was rotten but that didn't stop us. Beautiful woodland walk around the site. Very clean facilities. We had a ball! We'll be back! Very peaceful site. Tiny suggestion would be to put in plug point for hair dryer in the ladies.
