Great Location

Great site! We received a very warm welcome at reception after a long days' drive and were escorted to our pitch by the warden. Facilities very modern and extremely clean. It is a big site but the standards are very high, lots of water and rubbish disposal points. Fantastic location, minutes to the beach with its vast expanse to walk along. Great disused railway line to walk along too. We only stayed one night but wished we could have stayed longer. We will return as soon as we can.

Fantastic scenery and excellent location

Booked to stay for 5 nights at the end of July but ended up staying for 8 and didn’t want to leave. The site is large and open but is spread out over different encampments with plenty of room between units. It was more sheltered than we expected given its location. The majority of pitches are level with most hard standing. It is handy being able to drive straight onto the pitch and having the guidance of the warden. If you are pitched at the far end near the small airport, it’s quite a walk to the toilet block, pot wash etc. There is also a children’s play area. Overall we found it reasonable priced compared to some sites although it is an affiliate site. We hope to return someday. It definitely lived up to the recommendation we’d had. The site is right on the coast with easy access to the stony beach. Water was much calmer than we expected and left us regretting the decision to leave our paddle board at home. Site is excellent for families or couples who like water sports. The surrounding scenery is something we will long remember and it was lovely to sit out and just chill. Staff were friendly and helpful and we found the site very clean. We asked to change our pitch and this request was accommodated. If you want a pitch on the front, then make this known upon booking. There may be some available for a few nights, pitches further back have a more elevated view. There is a cycle track nearby and it’s an easy walk to Connell bridge. Oban is about 5 miles away and has a Tesco and an Aldi. There are plenty of places to eat in Oban and we patronised the fish vendor nearest the ferry terminal, If you intend taking a ferry our advice is to book in advance during July and August

Not club standards

1.Too big and open 2.You pay £10 deposit and lose £1 booking fee?? 3.Cannot choose your pitch ..we was given a pitch that was very open, windy and exposed. 4. Shower blocks doors were constantly wedged open and not very private as men were constantly walking past. Showers were only just warm, never getting any hotter. 5. Cars were a constant on the site as numerous people drove to the showers blocks passing you by and also people walking across your pitch as short cut. 6.One worker loving his grass strimmer instead of lawn mover! 7. Not club standards as main clubsite and should be in affiliated site at the least.

The perfect large site

Having stopped at North Ledaig many times previously, we already knew that the location was lovely, the staff brilliant and the facilities top rate - we were not disappointed! It is a very large site, fronting on to a west facing beach with views out to the islands. Perfect for a stay to explore Oban or take a ferry to visit the wonderful islands - Mull or even the Outer Hebrides!

A fantastic week

We stayed for a week on the 11th of May, it was our first visit to the site and we had been allocated a pitch on the second row from the beach, giving an unspoiled view across the Loch. We were greeted by friendly staff on arrival and then guided to our pitch by the warden who was also very helpful. Being able to drive through the pitch from the back made setting up a doddle. The staff were kind enough to allow me to inspect a fault that had developed on my car on the way in the late arrivals bay. It saved me a trip to the garage and enabled me to rectify the fault. There are plenty of walks from site, up and down the disused railway line that runs through the site, around the nearby airfield and along the large beach which you walk straight onto. The site is clean but is large and spread out. The central ablutions and Elsan were very clean, though it is a fair walk if you are staying on one of the extremeties of the site. I would recommend anyone who is of limited mobility to request a pitch closer to these facilities. On the otherhand, bins, water and grey waste were all easily accessible from our pitch. The 10a supply was not an issue during our stay, the only time it tripped being down to a faulty appliance in someone elses outfit. There is a shop on site for the basics and a caravan and camping shop a short distance up the road in Benderloch. Oban is in the opposite direction and has several supermarkets and has all the facilities you would require from a trip to town. It is also a picturesque town and well worth a visit for the local attractions and tourist shops. The week we stayed at North Ledaig was also blessed with some fantastic weather which also contributed to a thouroughly enjoyable week. We will return.

First Trip - And It Was Memorable

For years my wife and I threatened to get a wee campervan and tour Scotland. Well, recently we got a van and set about doing what we'd threatened. As complete novices we decided to try a night away first - to try out the van and see what was what. We decided not to go too far from home and settled on Oban. My wife organised the booking and was extremely impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the office staff. With the booking secured we headed up. Upon arrival I too was impressed with the office staff. Exceptionally hospitable and very, very welcoming. When we said this was our very first trip they changed our pitch to one down at the front, on the lochshore - the views were stunning. That wee touch alone meant alot to us. The facilities on-site are phenomenal. The toilet block is pristine. But the views!!! We went in to Oban which is barely 10 minutes along the road and enjoyed all the shopping and facilities it affords - I've been there umpteen times and it always pleases. Back to the site and we settled in for our first night in the van. All went well until around 5am when a beeping sound roused us from our comfortable slumber. Much moving and faffing about traced the noise to an inverter that was going mental. It turned out we were unknowingly draining the vehicle battery and would need a jump-start to get it going! We crawled back under the covers and caught up on our sleep and later on that morning I headed up to the office to seek help. En-route I met one of the rangers and explained my plight. Within minutes another ranger arrived with jump-leads and got us fired-up - with a wee explanation of how to set our switches correctly! As a first excursion it had everything. But, the overriding memory was the friendliness of the staff. Sure, the views are out of this world, but the people made it; and we'll always be grateful to them for making it so memorable.

Beach Views

Upon arrival, we were shown our pitch was situated on the beach and the views were stunning, The toilets and showers were good and very clean and the bus service to Oban which was outside the site was very efficient and value for money.

Disappointing

This campsite is a large, insecure and open commercial site with an area set aside for C&MC members. The prospect of the view is what initially attracted us but the site is bland and the view of sea and a distant island (Mull) soon is not enough. The bus service to Oban, with a stop outside the site is very good. We were disappointed to find the electrical supply is only 10 amps and that it cannot be re-set without the attendance of the warden between the hours of 8am to 8pm. Outside these hours you would go without. One therefore is always concerned about power usage which does not go with a relaxing stay. They also only take cash or Debit card payment. Neither of these issues are mentioned in their write ups, anywhere and we first learned about them when booking in on site. Given the tariffs I feel this site is poor value for money despite the location.

Stunning! Just stunning!

What a beautiful site in a beautiful part of the world. Great staff who couldn’t be more helpful, great layout for families with young kids, good flat area with plenty of grass for the kids to play. Has to be the best sure we have visited so far and we just can’t keep away.

DO NOT EXPECT CLUB STANDARDS!

This is a HUGE site with row upon row of empty caravans, many in a poor state - somewhat reminiscent of a large static site - it is very open and has good views. There is NO SECURITY BARRIER so anyone can access this site at any time of the day or night. Not for us thank you - we will stick to Official Club Sites...
