Why stay here ...

Bunree Club Site in Onich, just 10 miles from Fort William, is a fantastic highland holiday destination and must be one of the loveliest areas on the network in scenic terms - it is, quite literally, breathtaking. Your caravan can be parked almost at the water's edge of Loch Linnhe, with your view overlooking the beauty and the splendour of the mountains across from it. You may even be lucky enough to spot sea otters from your pitch. You'll spend a day or two acclimatising to all this natural beauty at the caravan park before you even want to explore further afield. 

When you do fancy an expedition, Bunree Club Site is near what should be one of your first ports of call - a visit to magnificent Ben Nevis. You can take a cable car to the upper terminal (2,300ft) of the Aonach Mor Mountain, for fabulous views of the whole mountain range, the Great Glen and the islands of Skye and Rhum. The site also gives you easy access to guided mountain walks if you choose. Another landmark that is not to be missed is Glencoe - you'll find it eerie and exciting being in the location of one of the most the famous massacres in history, still legendary after three centuries. You can also enjoy the journey on the Jacobite steam pulled train from Fort William to Mallaig (advance booking is advised).

Great Experience

Just returned from Bunree our first visit did not disappoint. An excellent location superb views. Toilet/shower Block needs updating nevertheless it was clean and tidy. As dog owners the dog area is some what restricted and they encourage you not to walk between pitches in order to get to it. Having read a previous review about dogs being walked in front of loch side pitches and fouling well firstly there didn’t appear to be an alternative as there was a distinct gravel path to walk on leading to the dog walk and any responsible owner should pick up after there dog. Unfortunately dogs can’t toilet to command and they go when they go. During our stay of 12 days I didn’t witness any dog owner not picking up.

Spectacular views, don't forget your walking boots.

Excellent loch side pitch with absolutely stunning views. Good hill walking from site plus the free foot passenger ferry to Ardgour just a 5 min walk away and well worth the trip (fee applies if taking vehicle across). Queue on arrival at site not so good but maybe people arrive early to 'bag' a Lochside pitch? Toilet block could do with an update. Covid wrist band entry system worked well. So many people with dogs on this site and despite dog walking area the dog owners repeatedly walked their dogs directly in front of Lochside pitches allowing their dog to foul right in front of motorhomes. Not pleasant at all.

Excellent site

Stayed here for three nights, very scenic and quiet location, if you want a pitch by the shore you need to book without awning pitch, also a lot of pitches require a 30m power cable so be aware if your cable is short like mine. Facilities are good, even in Covid times, and the wrist band system works well. Bring a bike, take the Corran ferry for free, a great walk is on the other side at Glen Gour, Take the track up the glen for a couple of miles, then take the style over the fence for a wild soggy pathless traverse of Beinn Leamhain to make a great loop, you will not see a soul up there, Scottish hill walking at its best. Inchee waterfalls well worth a visit, just opposite campsite within walking distance.

Bonnie Bunree!

Spent 4 nights from 19 October 2021. Was a very wet arrival and rained every night we were there, but that did not detract from this fabulous site or the location. I did notice a review about loch side pitches being walked through to get to the loch and the grass being long. My suggestion is if you don't want people walking to the lochside via your pitch, go on one further back, you still get the views! Given the weather leading up to our visit and whilst we were there I would have been amazed if they'd managed to cut the grass as it was very wet and personally we didn't find it a problem. The only problem we encountered was people not adhering to the bracelet system/restricted numbers using the shower block at any one time and just walking in. The site staff were obviously working really hard as usual to keep everything spotless and I would like to say a huge thank you to them as it can't be easy in these times and they put themselves at possible risk to ensure we all have a safe stay. We will be back and until then I hope they continue to stay safe and well.

Lovely site

It's all been said before, super site in a very picturesque part of Scotland, directly on the loch side. Wardens friendly and efficient. Great for Motorhomes as an easy walk to the Corran ferry to explore the West side of Loch Linnhe, and bus stops for trips into Fort William or Glencoe. Tip; go to the Neptune Staircase of locks on the Caledonian canal 3 miles North East of Fort William. Cafe is nice and lovely gift shop. You can get a 2min train journey straight to the locks from Fort William if you don't fancy the walk.
