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).

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.

Back again for another 'Five Star Experience' and treated like Royalty.

This review is for Oban

Back again for another 'Five Star Experience' and treated like Royalty. Maureen and Stephen go out of their way to make sure everyone is kept happy during their stay, Maureen never ceases to amaze us, this time she brought us Cherry Bakewell's and Coffee when we were setting up, no other site would ever do this. I can honestly say that this site is the best that we've ever stayed at, just a pity its 182 miles from where we live. I will always give this site five stars in the review and if I had the chance I would give more, the site and its facilities are always immaculate, the staff certainly work hard for their money. With its forrest walks and the tarmac'd cycle way between Oban and Fort William then this is the site for you if you like to get out and about. Theres plenty of restaurants and pubs to eat at within a five mile radius. If I could nominate a site for an award then it would have to be Barcaldine, well done to Maureen, Steve and their colleagues for looking after us. We will be back next year or even sooner if we can get away.

Maureen and Stephen clearly take pride in the site.

This review is for Oban

Maureen and Stephen clearly take pride in the site. The block is immaculate at all times of day and all facilities are well maintained. A bit off the beaten track but good bus service to Oban for us motorhomers without cars (I cycled it on my folding bike but got bus back as it is 14 miles and I am not as fit as I once was). Great walks around site and a good village pub 2 miles away in Creagan.
