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.

Not club standards

1.Too big and open 2.You pay £10 deposit and lose £1 booking fee?? 3.Cannot choose your pitch ..we was given a pitch that was very open, windy and exposed. 4. Shower blocks doors were constantly wedged open and not very private as men were constantly walking past. Showers were only just warm, never getting any hotter. 5. Cars were a constant on the site as numerous people drove to the showers blocks passing you by and also people walking across your pitch as short cut. 6.One worker loving his grass strimmer instead of lawn mover! 7. Not club standards as main clubsite and should be in affiliated site at the least.

The perfect large site

Having stopped at North Ledaig many times previously, we already knew that the location was lovely, the staff brilliant and the facilities top rate - we were not disappointed! It is a very large site, fronting on to a west facing beach with views out to the islands. Perfect for a stay to explore Oban or take a ferry to visit the wonderful islands - Mull or even the Outer Hebrides!

A fantastic week

We stayed for a week on the 11th of May, it was our first visit to the site and we had been allocated a pitch on the second row from the beach, giving an unspoiled view across the Loch. We were greeted by friendly staff on arrival and then guided to our pitch by the warden who was also very helpful. Being able to drive through the pitch from the back made setting up a doddle. The staff were kind enough to allow me to inspect a fault that had developed on my car on the way in the late arrivals bay. It saved me a trip to the garage and enabled me to rectify the fault. There are plenty of walks from site, up and down the disused railway line that runs through the site, around the nearby airfield and along the large beach which you walk straight onto. The site is clean but is large and spread out. The central ablutions and Elsan were very clean, though it is a fair walk if you are staying on one of the extremeties of the site. I would recommend anyone who is of limited mobility to request a pitch closer to these facilities. On the otherhand, bins, water and grey waste were all easily accessible from our pitch. The 10a supply was not an issue during our stay, the only time it tripped being down to a faulty appliance in someone elses outfit. There is a shop on site for the basics and a caravan and camping shop a short distance up the road in Benderloch. Oban is in the opposite direction and has several supermarkets and has all the facilities you would require from a trip to town. It is also a picturesque town and well worth a visit for the local attractions and tourist shops. The week we stayed at North Ledaig was also blessed with some fantastic weather which also contributed to a thouroughly enjoyable week. We will return.

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.
