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).

This review is for Oban

We booked this site well in advance as part of a 3 site tour of the west of Scotland; we had, however, not realised that it was not in Oban (per its CCC site name) - but actually 13 miles north. The site is very well kept and a delight to stay at. The facilities are some of the best that we have experienced at any CCC site. The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and Oban. Whilst at the site we made use of the local excellent Sustrans cycle routes - riding both to Creagan via the Loch Creran loop, and to Benderloch (the nearest town/shop). We also went to Oban by bus, and on a separate trip took our motorhome to Oban so that we could go on the Three Isles tour Mull, Staffa and Iona) - well recommended and well worth the GBP 65 each. Staffa offers a chance to see Finghal's Czve as well as see puffins; Iona has its Abbey. (Motorhomes can be parked all day opposite Tesco, Oban for GBP 10). All in all a brilliant site which is an excellent base for touring this part of Argyll and Bute.

Great campsite and extremely keen and tidy.

This review is for Oban

Great campsite and extremely keen and tidy. Stephen, and the others clearly take pride in maintaining this site. Great eating recommendations. The Creagan Inn was suggested and we weren't disappointed, good food and great views. The site itself inside the walled gardens is an excellent facility and is quite unique in that respect, Good walking trails literally just outside the site grounds. Will recommend!!

Delightful site within the high walls of an old garden. Flat pitches.

This review is for Oban

Delightful site within the high walls of an old garden. Flat pitches. The facilities were modern, warm, clean and inviting and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The small shop sold a few useful bits and pieces as well as basic food supplies. We would go there again.
