Hi, I was just wondering if anybody has been to Bunree CAMC Site.  I have a dog and wondered what the dog area was like etc. I would be grateful for any other info as well. Many Thanks.

It’s a fantastic site, and one of our favourites. It’s not the best for dogs; the dog walk is the area along the shore and they must be kept on leads. The walking close to the site is along roads, so you have to go further afield to find somewhere to let them off. 

Lochside pitches are much sought-after, and are ‘without awning’ only. Nearby ferry across the water is free for foot passengers (and dogs!) and leads to a pub and better walking routes.

Lovely approach route from the south through Glencoe, though the road at the north of Loch Lomond can seem a little hairy if busy.

I'd agree with Ted on tour's summary of the actual Bunree site but if you look on the Walk Highlands web site there is forestry walk over the main road, just east of the site. Here's an example if you want to do a local walk with your dog.

Make sure everything is tied down at Bunree, it can get stormy in bad weather! Other than that it's in a great spot to explore the area.

From our visit one of the best views and location on the club's network. For one week, good pitches. For one week it has lovely sunny weather but breezy and one of the best holidays we had, then it rained for four days straight...then the midges... But apart from that a great site.

From the south the best route is via Stirling & Callander, avoiding Loch Lomond which can be narrow & twisty in places

I agree with you on best route have always taken the route via Callendar.

Hi there,

We have booked Bunree for our main summer break this year in late July - early August 2021.  We will be travelling up from West Sussex, from near Crawley, the last time we headed so far north was to Grantown-on-Spey back in 2014 so we are looking forward to venturing up here again with our touring caravan.

We plan to travel up to Troutbeck CAMC first and have 2 nights booked here and then straight up to Bunree.  Looking at the comments and routes it sounds like the best route is to go via Sterling and Callendar so I need to check the road altas and plan it all out but it looks like I need to pick up the M73 from the M74, then the M80, then the A84 around Stirling, on past Callendar before picking up A85 for a spell and then finally on to the A82 right through to the site.

Having looked on Google street view it doesn't cover the site access road which is referred to as narrow with passing places and traffic lights.  Just wondering how narrow is it? The road looks fairly straight so presumably reasonable vision of the road ahead is pretty good.  Just wanted other members comments and thoughts on the access road please?

It looks like an amazing location.

Thanks,

NSum

Never found access a problem with the traffic light control. We have been about 3 times in last 16 years
