Why stay here ...

North Ledaig Club Site is one of the best locations on Scotland's west coast. A wonderful 30-acre park that has been awarded the David Bellamy Conservation Award, it is situated on a 2 mile sand and shingle beach on Ardmucknish Bay. Here sailing, water sports and bathing can be enjoyed by all the family. Some pitches at the caravan site are almost on the water's edge and all of them face the sea, offering panoramic view to the beautiful Isle of Mull. The site is ideal for children with an adventure playground on site.

From the North Ledaig Club Site you can take a scenic walk on the deserted shoreline to watching wading birds, glimpse an otter or photograph the beautiful sunsets. Enjoy a nature walk on the 30-acre Ledaig Moss to see the birds and the rich wildlife that populates the ponds. Nearby Oban is a bustling fishing port and main ferry terminal for the Hebrides and Western Isles. Inland trips to Glencoe, Cruachan Power Station and the historic town of Inveraray are a must for visitors to this idyllic caravan site.

First Trip - And It Was Memorable

For years my wife and I threatened to get a wee campervan and tour Scotland. Well, recently we got a van and set about doing what we'd threatened. As complete novices we decided to try a night away first - to try out the van and see what was what. We decided not to go too far from home and settled on Oban. My wife organised the booking and was extremely impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the office staff. With the booking secured we headed up. Upon arrival I too was impressed with the office staff. Exceptionally hospitable and very, very welcoming. When we said this was our very first trip they changed our pitch to one down at the front, on the lochshore - the views were stunning. That wee touch alone meant alot to us. The facilities on-site are phenomenal. The toilet block is pristine. But the views!!! We went in to Oban which is barely 10 minutes along the road and enjoyed all the shopping and facilities it affords - I've been there umpteen times and it always pleases. Back to the site and we settled in for our first night in the van. All went well until around 5am when a beeping sound roused us from our comfortable slumber. Much moving and faffing about traced the noise to an inverter that was going mental. It turned out we were unknowingly draining the vehicle battery and would need a jump-start to get it going! We crawled back under the covers and caught up on our sleep and later on that morning I headed up to the office to seek help. En-route I met one of the rangers and explained my plight. Within minutes another ranger arrived with jump-leads and got us fired-up - with a wee explanation of how to set our switches correctly! As a first excursion it had everything. But, the overriding memory was the friendliness of the staff. Sure, the views are out of this world, but the people made it; and we'll always be grateful to them for making it so memorable.

Beach Views

Upon arrival, we were shown our pitch was situated on the beach and the views were stunning, The toilets and showers were good and very clean and the bus service to Oban which was outside the site was very efficient and value for money.

Disappointing

This campsite is a large, insecure and open commercial site with an area set aside for C&MC members. The prospect of the view is what initially attracted us but the site is bland and the view of sea and a distant island (Mull) soon is not enough. The bus service to Oban, with a stop outside the site is very good. We were disappointed to find the electrical supply is only 10 amps and that it cannot be re-set without the attendance of the warden between the hours of 8am to 8pm. Outside these hours you would go without. One therefore is always concerned about power usage which does not go with a relaxing stay. They also only take cash or Debit card payment. Neither of these issues are mentioned in their write ups, anywhere and we first learned about them when booking in on site. Given the tariffs I feel this site is poor value for money despite the location.

Stunning! Just stunning!

What a beautiful site in a beautiful part of the world. Great staff who couldn’t be more helpful, great layout for families with young kids, good flat area with plenty of grass for the kids to play. Has to be the best sure we have visited so far and we just can’t keep away.

DO NOT EXPECT CLUB STANDARDS!

This is a HUGE site with row upon row of empty caravans, many in a poor state - somewhat reminiscent of a large static site - it is very open and has good views. There is NO SECURITY BARRIER so anyone can access this site at any time of the day or night. Not for us thank you - we will stick to Official Club Sites...
