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).

Lovely site

Lovely site and views over the loch are terrific but toilet facilities are a bit dated. If you go for a loch side pitch, the downside is you cannot have an awning and you suffer slightly less privacy as everyone walks along the path that runs alongside the loch and back down again and also people need to cross the lochside pitches to get to the path. If this is an issue probably best to get a pitch on the 2nd row back (the pitches are staggered so that they still get a view). Most dog owners I saw were very responsible but there were one or two who let their dogs run off their lead outside the dog walking area. Locals also use the site for dog walking so they may not have been staying on site. Road to Fort William is quite bendy and although limited to 50 mph, during the week its a busy road especially with articulated lorries (so drive with caution). If you cycle - I highly recommend the Fort William to Commando memorial (Spean Bridge) ride along the canal - lovely route with very little traffic. If visiting Steall Falls and you have a motorhome or campervan, be aware that there are several short bridges on the single track road with a 3 ton weight limit on the way to the upper Steall Falls car park. Best to park at the lower falls car park which is just at the part where the road turns to single track. Also, now is a good time to take a trip on the Jacobite train to Mallaig as many hotels etc are still closed so plenty of tickets available.

1st visit & will definitely be back

This was our 1st visit to Bunree & I can see why it gets such good reviews. We were lucky to have a loch side pitch and the view was amazing, it was so peaceful. No queue on arrival only 1 person waiting to sign in which was quick & informed. The wardens are very helpful & answer any questions you may have. The toilet/shower block was open with covid band system in place which worked well & the facilities were very clean Lovely walk to Inchree waterfall about 15 minutes & we took the 2 minute free to foot passengers ferry across to Ardgour Will definitely return to Bunree for a relaxing break with beautiful scenery

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.
