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 cormorants or sea otters from your 'van. 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).

Location, location, location!

This site has long been on my ‘bucket list’ and certainly didn’t disappoint on our recent 5 night stay. The location is spectacular in all weathers, and we experienced most! The views across and down Loch Linnhe will keep you spellbound throughout your visit. It is true to say that the ‘without awning’ pitches along the shore line give an uninterrupted view but if you wish to use an awning the elevated back row pitches look out over the rest of the site and benefit from some shelter from the hill behind. We encountered no problems with our awning despite 30-40 mph gusts during a particularly wet and windy 24 hours. All facilities are of the usual high standard and the wardens are both friendly and helpful. The single track entry/exit presents no problem due to the controlling traffic lights. We enjoyed a wonderful day’s drive, crossing via the Coran Ferry to the Sunart and Moidart districts on our way to Malaig. Driving by car on largely on single-track roads we encountered very little traffic and enjoyed fantastic views in very varied countryside. Returning the ‘quick’ way via Fort William rounded off a great day out. Try it! On a more general note, we found dog owners to be quite considerate by and large though it seems that it has become almost compulsory these days to own at least 3 dogs if you are a Club member!

Excellent site and facilities

Excellent site and facilities, and what a view! If you don't need a awning, book a pitch on the front row. The traffic lights controlling the single track entrance area brilliant Idea, other sites should take note.

First visit

Wow, what a fabulous location! On the shores of the loch and with views both across and down the loch, you can be inspired by the changing weather and its affect on the view. It's a great place for photography, as is most of Scotland of course! Not as many birds around as we expected for some reason. Inchree waterfall is nearby and a pleasant and easy walk. We will return and with better weather we hope!

third visit

This was our third visit to this site as we love the views so much. the wardens were fantastic and the facilities were clean and tidy as usual. as others have mentioned though something needs to be done about dog owners letting there dogs run free. it is only a minority but it is still an issue for everyone, especially when they take a short cut through the grassed dividing areas between pitches and they there dogs wee or poo there rather than walk a few extra yards on the road to the designated area. but this will not stop us returning when we visit scotland!!

Second Visit.

As the title indicates this was our second visit, we chose not to leave a review after our first visit as we knew we would be back. The location is stunning and the pitches are pretty level, the staff we have met are all fantastic. We have been on two at the lochside next to each other now and the most recent one we definitely needed our levellers. The view is fantastic however we have to agree with other reviews regarding the behaviour of dog owners letting their dogs run free on the whole of the grass area at the lochside, there is a designated area for dogs to do their business and they are also supposed to be kept on a lead until this area but this does not happen, we actually saw people letting their dog run free and did not even have a bag to pick up after them, thankfully there is a trowel of some description left by the site obviously in anticipation of this. We went for a walk on our first visit and were nowhere near rthe Dog area yet my Wife unfortunately stepped on dog mess! Other than this the site , location and people working there make it we think our favourite site so far in our relatively limited travels. If we could have given 4.5 stars we would have but the dog mess issue needs to be dealt with.
