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).

7 Nights 1 May 2019

This was stop 4 on our multi-stop tour from Lincolnshire to Scotland (and back) with 7 nights here after a 3+ hour drive from a stopover at Strathclyde Country Park. I had heard from friends (and read reviews) about this site and they had not exaggerated. It is truly stunning. We could not get our week booking on the non-awning pitches at the front which are right on the loch side but one row back still gave a magnificent view unparalleled by any site visited before. Quite breathtaking. This was our first visit and the wardens were really helpful with directions and suggestions for local walks with good views along the loch. They are a friendly team who keep the facilities spotless and always said hello when passing or gave a cheery wave as they they chugged by on their little orange tractor. A short drive north takes you to Fort William which has a few shops and supermarkets. A small town well worth visiting. A slightly longer but scenic drive to Oban was also very rewarding with lots to see. On the way back to the site we had a picnic at a parking area on the side of Loch Linnhe which gave wonderful views. A total chill out experience! While staying here we saw a red squirrel at the feeders in the woods across the road from the site and on a drive to Lochaline we spotted a sea eagle. Magnificent! Summary: A site that's hard to sum up without ending every sentence with an exclamation mark! Well run, well located and so peaceful. Just beautiful. We will be returning next year.

If only it had spaces.....

Have stayed here 3 times now, twice booked within 1 day's notice. Fabulous location at the waterside, although the best pitches on the shoreline (without awning) appear to booked up well in advance. All good facilities, well presented. Pitches close to level. Nice gastropub at Ballachulish. Good walks from the site into the hills opposite.

Just WOW!

We kept seeing pictures and reading about this lovely site and now we are pleased to have visited and can't wait to be back. This is an amazing site! The views are fabulous, the loch with the mountains behind; absolutely stunning. There is a lot to do in the area, I don't think we even scratched the surface. We hiked in several locations, including the short waterfall hike that is just across the road from the site as well as Ben Nevis. If you fancy driving around there are some beautiful places to visit and the scenery is amazing with crystal clear coastal water. We really lucked out with great weather, not too cold or windy. In fact we only had a bit of rain for 2 afternoons which is not bad for a 5 night stay. We are a family of 4 with children aged 11 and 13, they didn't play in the park and we were so busy we never did get a chance to use the games room but I could see it being very popular in bad weather! The site was very clean and tidy and the toilets always clean. We really enjoyed our stay, I just wish it was closer to home as I can't wait to get back!

Beautiful site but needs a better dog-walking area

We were lucky enough to get a lochside pitch this time and enjoyed stunning sunsets over Loch Linnhe. We also saw a great northern diver from our caravan. However, we have two dogs and whenever we took them to the dog walking area, which is very small and by the sea, the tide was in, making it virtually unusable. I notice a previous reviewer has complained about dogs being walked and doing their business in front of their caravan and I do sympathise with this. Perhaps the Caravan Club could acquire an extra and large piece of land that is not susceptible to the tide for the dogs to use?
