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).

I have just enjoyed my second break at the Oban site.

This review is for Oban

I have just enjoyed my second break at the Oban site. You are always met with a cheery welcome from managers Stephen and Carole, who couldn't be more helpful. The site walls are covered with flowering shrubs and creepers and you feel like you are staying in someone's garden. It's lovely. Both the site and facilities are kept clean and tidy and fresh flowers are placed in the toilet block. A nice touch. The site would suit all, young and old, athletic or people who just like to enjoy short walks in the grove by the river with their dog. Walking and cycling paths lead off from the site gates. Some paths are tarred with gentle inclines, ideal for young families (or the less fit like me), others are hilly forest tracks for the fitter family members. There is also an off-road tarred track to the Sealife Centre and North to Creagan where a lovely meal can be had at the Cregan Hotel while enjoying the beautiful view over the water. I would recommend this site and I will be back again very soon.

Very friendly welcome, Site clean and peaceful, lovely trees, birds, and walks.

This review is for Oban

Very friendly welcome, Site clean and peaceful, lovely trees, birds, and walks. Close to the Sea life Centre. What did not help was the fact that head office gave us the wrong post code. After a 4hour drive towing, we ended up negotiating lots of difficult roundabouts a one way system in Oban, a one way lake side narrow road, up to a cliff top park. Only to be told that it was the wrong site. They said that the Caravan and Camping Club are always directing people to their site.. The main site is not even in Oban. Two hours later and stressed out we found the site. Fortunately the staff were really helpful.

This is one of the best sites that I have stayed at. Set in a walled garden with perfectly manicured grass this is a compact delightful site. The facilities are brand new, really well laid out and superb.
