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).

Stunning Location

Just spent a great few days here as part of a longer holiday touring around Scotland. What a lovely place situated on the Loch. Wardens were very friendly and helpful, toilets and showers were very clean - just a bit dated and cold

Superb site. Good location.

Lovely clean site with shop selling essentials. Some good walks opposite the site which is ideal for dog owners. Views across the Loch are superb. Otters were spotted in the stream at the entrance to the site but I never saw one. Will definitely visit again.

Nice view, shame about the view.

Lovely site in a lovely location with a lovely view of the loch. Peaceful and quiet. Unfortunately the view was often ruined by some dog owners allowing their dogs to defacate on the grass in front of the caravans instead of using the dog walk. There is nothing worse than trying to eat your meal and having to watch this. The majority of dog owners used the dog walk, but it was the same irresponsible owners each time that flouted the rules.

Excellent Site in Stunning Location.

For as long as I can recall, we have wanted a caravan stay at Bunree, and having finally achieved it, I have to say how well it lived up to expectation, and how much we are looking forward to returning. The site is in a quite breath-taking location, right on the shores of Loch Linnhe, just south of Fort William. Access is straightforward from the A82, making it easy to visit Fort William, or perhaps beyond to Skye or nearby Glencoe. Quite a narrow access road takes outfits past residential properties, but an efficient traffic lights system ensures there is no possibility of meeting anyone coming in the opposite direction. The welcome at Reception was warm and helpful, and provided information about the site itself and places or attractions nearby. This a hugely popular site, for good reason, so an arrival earlier in the day should ensure a choice of pitch - and what a choicer there is. There are non-awning pitches right by the side of the loch, located there so that views of the scenery are not restricted, and these are superb. However, all other pitches are of a very good standard spacious, well-maintained and generally pretty level, with many at the lower end of the site having quite stunning views. Water, power and refuse disposal are all within easy reach for all. The shower/toilet block is excellent, more than adequate for the numbers and maintained and cleaned to a very high standard. Fort William and Glencoe are just a short drive away, and going further afield is easy. A call into the Commando Memorial on the hillside above Spean Bridge is thought-provoking, and travelling onwards to Inverness and its attractions is easy and enjoyable. Just two slightly negative thoughts occur to me, which were both observed at Bunree, but have also been noted on other sites. Sadly, we regularly had the inconsiderate small minority of dog owners who walked their dogs on grassed areas between pitches, allowing them to urinate at will, even on the edges of pitches close to caravans or awnings. One even did so on the wheel of my car as I was unloading it on our pitch. I like dogs, I have had dogs, so please, if you are one of that small minority allowing your dog to do this, please show greater courtesy and consideration for others. The other practice observed at Bunree, and also elsewhere, is that some members seem to have difficulty in adhering to the 5 mph speed limit on sites. I am not thinking of those who might occasionally creep up towards 10 mph or so, but those who are clearly driving somewhere between 15 -20 mph. Again, for the safety and enjoyment of all using the sites, please show greater consideration as you drive around. Despite these two observations, we had a fabulous stay at Bunree, which because of the site itself, its stunning location and proximity to so many other places, offers a great experience to members. We simply can't wait to return..

Lochside Pitch

All the pitches at this site look excellent but we were pleased to be on the loch side. The facilities are as you would expect for a club site and the welcome on arrival was friendly and efficient. There is also a well stocked store for basics at reception. This is a good site for either a quick stop as part of a longer journey or as a destination for a longer stay. The entrance road to the site has cows with calves loose at this time of year. They happily move out of the road when you want to pass but caution and a nice slow speed is required.
