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).

A site you don't want to leave

We had a short notice 3 night break in August. We are from West Coast so weren't looking to visit Fort William or Glencoe just a peaceful break. Weather was mixed but we were captivated by views and changing landscape. Had a lovely pitch on corner by river. We visited Ardgour via Corran Ferry and Inchree. No shops but 3 nice pubs. Reception sells milk and rolls. Recommend Inchree waterfall walk.This is type of site you can happily spend all day on without getting bored. Toilet block getting a bit tired looking although very clean and functional. A little gem that we will definitely revisit.

Alainn (Beautiful) Bunree

Just come back from two weeks at this site, a bit of trek for us as we live in Wiltshire, but well worth it. As previously stated, very very busy site, but quiet, noise wise, we had a choice of four pitches when we arrived, the warden pointed out which ones were free which saved us looking for them, we found a nice spacious pitch in the 'cul-de-sac', about three rows back, still had views. which are without a doubt magnificent, anyone visiting this year is in for a treat, I understand this is not normal, a local told us that they usually get two weeks in the Spring and two weeks in the Autumn where they see the sun, so this has been an extraordinary year. We did the touristy things, Ben Nevis..to the top!!, Nevis range cable car...and the short walks at the top, nice restaurant up there too, Ben Nevis distillery...they had run out of the Ben Nevis whisky...had to get some from Fort William. Rode the Jacobite train aka Hogwarts Express to some, visited Glefinnan Monument..Bon Prince Charlie and all that...you can use your English NT card here. When you visit Forte William don't forget look for the Forte, or what remains of it, it is easily missed, its opposite Morrisons, very interesting story to tell. This is a very beautiful area, I must say though I think we will avoid the touristy bits in the future as these are very busy with noisy, demanding, well um tourists.

A room with a view!

Arrived here on 27th June for 6 nights. Later than anticipated as we had a little trouble with one of the caravan legs. (don't ask..... it was all my fault!). Being June & hot & sunny we were not surprised to find the site full so we didn't get the option of choosing a pitch as there was only one left! No 2 just as you enter the site. Well what a view to wake up to each morning, not only wall to wall sunshine but a view over the Loch and surrounding mountains. Bliss! It is a fairly big site & being full you would expect it to be a little noisy but it wasn't. I noted from the comments book that people all liked to moan about the slightly dated toilets! For goodness sake, some people! They were very clean, tidy & perfectly adequate along with the washing up area. A short walk out of the site to the Corran ferry takes you over the Loch (free to foot passengers) where there is a very nice Inn for some welcome liquid refreshment. We treated ourselves one evening to a trip over for an evening meal. Dogs were made welcome in the bar area & in fact he was given a bowl of water & biscuits before we got our drinks! Our meal was excellent fish & chips.....well the size of the fish! it hung over the side of the plate. Then you just look out the door to see if you have time for another beverage before checking if the ferry is on its way back! Fort William is about 8 miles away where there is a Morrisons for petrol etc & just up the road a little way is a new Aldi & M & S foods so you are spoilt for choice. We did the cable car up to the Ben Nevis range which was worth the views. We also had a drive round Glencoe & visited the Ben Nevis distillery which was worth a tipple! It was sad to leave & congratulations should be given to Angus (who was just such a friendly helpful chap) & the other wardens who all do an excellent job. My only one moan was to other members who can't read that the speed limit is 5mph & have to drive around at unacceptable speeds! After all we are all on holiday so what's the rush!

stop over site

This is the 1st time we have used this site, mainly because we were using it as a stop over for a trip to the western isles. the site is located by the loch,with views all around you, the facilities are good and the site was busy ,but you didn't feel that you were in a site that was full ,we went over on the Corran ferry as foot passengers to look at island over the loch and we did a small walk (you can get a walking map from the reception at 20p which covers this walk and some walks near the site). we didn't get attacked by the midges ,due to the after marks of the last storm ,which meant that all the west side of Scotland was suffering from cloud and wind for a week. We were in a motor home ,so we used the public transport to Fort William , to which the bus stop is not far from the site. this is a nice site either as a stop over or a week visit ,as you can visit many place locally

Best site I've been to

Excellent site with amazing loch views. Cleanliness was impeccable as always. All the staff were friendly whenever we saw them. Loch views were lovely with mountains on the other side. Midges are a pain but not a lot you can do unless you wear a net and use spray. Citronella definitely helps keep them at bay. Brilliant base for the area. Glencoe mountain range, the chairlift, Inchree Falls and red squirrel feeding station. Glencoe lochan is a small but stunning loch to visit. Venture down the single track roads, the rivers and falls you find are well worth it. Breakfast in Crofters Bar at Fort William is delicious, the staff were lovely and the price was average. Jacobite train was nice too, but if you want that viaduct shot, you need to visit Glenfinnan and walk up there you will definitely need to book in advance for this. You could spend months there and still not see it all. But everything around there is amazing.
