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.

Helpful wardens and a stunning location, but very large, the site itself functional rather than attractive and very many unoccupied caravans and motor homes.

Very disappointing

We arrived at the site early in the morning knowing that we would have to wait until 12pm before being allowed on our pitch, we were 'greeted' by 2 wardens getting ready for opening the shop and reception, I say greeted, the actual words were "We're not open yet, have you booked?" We said we had and were told in no uncertain terms that we were too early, which we knew, and to go on the late arrival area. They did let us on our pitch earlier than we should have been after a lengthy discussion about our awning and annex, the annex inner tent had to be lifted every other day to protect the grass, which we did. We didn't think this site was up to normal CMC standards, the toilet blocks were clean but 2 toilet blocks for the amount of caravans and motorhomes that are on the site isn't enough. There are non members and caravan and camping club on the site as well as CMC. The play area wasn't very good at all, it was very rundown and could do with renovating. The location is good as it was easy to get to many of the places we wanted to visit. During our stay at 1.30am a car drove onto the site revving the engine and blowing the horn, we mentioned it to one of the wardens the next day and was told that it happens sometimes and they have reported it to the police but they dont do much if anything about it. This happened a couple of times while we were there and I think that one way to stop it would be to have barriers on the entrance/exit as most sites we've used previously have, also this would make the site more secure. We were also told that they have trouble with motorbikes driving along the beach. No mention of that in the handbook! Definitely not one of the best sites we've been on and if we want to go up to that area of Scotland again we won't be staying there.

Scottish tour

We have just spent 3 nights at North Ledaig. The views from this site are amazing! Whilst the facilities are dated they are well maintained and very clean. This is a very big site but worth the visit given its location. The bus service is great, we used the service on 2 days and provides easy access to Oban for shopping or ferries. The bus drivers are very helpful. We will most certainly make a return visit to this site.

One of the best site views in the UK

After a bumpy journey via Loch Lomond, North Ledaig was the first stop on our first trip to Scotland. Its a huge affiliated site on the edge of a loch, overlooking the island of Mull, with a grassy section dedicted to CMC members. At first there seemed to be a lot of rules and we were surprised that our pitch had already been allocated when we booked and we were escorted to it by the warden in his car. Unusually, the caravan and awning sit on a levelled-out hardstanding, while the car is parked next to it on gently sloping grass. We then understood the pre-allocation process, otherwise the grass would soon be churned up rigs driving around looking for a good pitch. All the pitches had wonderful views over the Loch, as the EHU pitches were spaced around the edge of the grassy sloping section. There was no privacy or screening between pitches, but it was a positive for us as we got talking to our neighbours more than usual. In peak season, the central grassy, non-EHU area would also be used as pitches, so that might reduce the views and make it feel a bit crowded. Its a great location for access to the Islands and you shouldn't be dissapointed by a stay here.

No Character

First off let me say we enjoyed our stay but I felt this site was not up to the normal Caravan and Motorhome standards. Pitches were 10 amp and there was a warning in the toilets to try to use less electricity as it was a bank holiday and a full park could cause the entire park to go dark. There were rows and rows of caravans and motorhomes thus the title no character. On a positive note there were an abundance of service points and a close cycle trail, restrooms were a long walk away but clean and upgraded.
