Why stay here ...

Fiona and Ian would love to welcome you to stay at our CL site in Airds Bay, Taynuilt nor far from Oban. This is an ideal place to stay for those wanting to escape their busy lifestyle. Why not find a peaceful spot nearby to sit and paint the spectacular alpine scenery, take photographs or just look at the view by day and the stars at night (not much light pollution here!)

This is one of the most stunning areas to visit in the West of Scotland, if not in the whole of Scotland. This is a great base to explore the outstanding and stunning scenery of mountains, lochs and islands that make up Argyll and Bute and have a fantastic holiday.

We have only one CL pitch and a further 6 self-catering properties all set a good distance apart. The nearest accommodation to you is approximately 60m away.

The site is on level hard standing with a patio and picnic bench next to it. We welcome adults, children and pets to our site. There is room for an awning and an electrical hook up provided at no extra cost. There is also a lockable storage shed for extra storage.

The beach is just 100 meters away down the owners' private track.

Could be really nice

This one pitch CL has the potential to be a really lovely site. It is set in stunning countryside, really peaceful and you could head for the CL fully anticipating a lovely break. However, we do feel there were some negatives which occurred during our stay. Firstly, the pitch does feel somewhat as if you are parked up in a storage area. At the time of our stay there was a large boat trailer, a smaller box trailer and two other trailers with boats on them all of which were in close proximity to the pitch. Secondly, we believe that if you had wanted to put up an awning not only would it mean that your outfit would be even closer to the trailers and boats but it would also have probably proved impossible for the boats to be removed and used as they were during our stay (we don't have an awning so wasn't a problem for us but if you do it may be an issue) Under the circumstances we don't feel that it currently warrants the £20 per night cost. We have stayed on many CL's that were of a far better set-up and only paid £14/15 max. We were definately expecting a lot more for the £20 cost. As we stated initially, this has the potential to be a cracking little CL if the negatives we mention are addressed.

Hidden Gem. One Pitch Site. Not to be missed.

This is a fantastic site! This CL has just the one pitch - which is brilliant - we stayed for a full week. Communication was easy when arranging our stay and we experienced a friendly welcome on arrival. The pitch is hard standing which comes with a SHED, PATIO and BENCH - massively extending your available space! You will likely get a visit from the hens and the cats who are very friendly, however if you wish to not be interrupted a windbreak is provided. FREE WIFI is available if you can pick it up from the nearby cabins. Views are excellent and the beach is only 1 minute away, a literal stone's throw. Locally we visited Oban, Inverawe Smokehouses (way-marked forest walks with smoked salmon to finish), Fearnoch (way-marked forest walks), Ganavan (Beach with free parking), and Ben Lora (way-marked mountain walk with free parking). On our return it was great to go for a wild swim in Aird's Bay. The bay is very safe, you can be 300 yards out and the water will only be up to your waist - alternatively when the tide is out you can walk around the bay. This site is suitable for everyone, families with children or holiday makers who wish to escape from it all. Would not hesitate to recommend this site to anyone! Book this CL you will not regret it.

Single pitch CL with cute farm dogs and free range chickens

We are repeat visitors to this CL which benefits from having only one pitch. This allows us to get away from work stress and prevents us from having to deal with other campers. There are holiday chalets on the site, but these are far enough away not to intrude on the tranquillity. The owners of the working smallholding are friendly and welcoming. On the pitch there is an electric hookup, a fresh water tap, grey water rinse tap, there is also a grey and black waste water dump as well. The hard-standing pitch has exclusive access to an adjacent patio-ed area with a shed for use by the campers. We find this quite useful and we do not pitch our awning at this CL because of this area. The nearby village of Taynuilt has a couple of good shops and a very good butcher. The CL is also very handy for nearby Oban, which has everything you might expect of a small town. There are a few things to do relatively close by, but our main purpose of visiting here is to get away from work, so we tend to walk on one of the many local walks and lounge around rather than specifically sight see. The most unique selling point for this CL is that it has only one pitch and this is what brought us to this CL initially and why we return. We will be back next chance we get.
