Oban Camping and Caravanning Club Site, a short distance from the banks of Loch Creran in the heart of Argyll & Bute, is situated 13 miles from the town of Oban itself. This park is unique in that it sits within a vegetable garden, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of room for anyone with a tent, motorhome, or touring caravan that wants to stay at Oban. Fully serviced pitches are available at Oban Camping and Caravanning Club Site.
All the amenities you need for a stress-free holiday can be found here; in addition to a number of electricity hook-ups, you can also take care of your laundry or washing up on site, while a handy convenience store means you never have to leave the Oban site should you not wish to do so. For those who enjoy being away but like to connect with their lives at home, Wi-Fi is provided across the park to use at your own convenience.
The park welcomes children and pets, with a children’s play area situated on site providing hours of fun and enjoyment.
Away from the site itself, if you head south and away from Loch Creran, you will find the picturesque Barcaldine Forest. There is a road running through the forest, but why take the car when you can be at one with nature and head out on foot? Travellers who feel extra energetic or who are looking to hone their fitness can always bring their bicycles and choose that mode of transport. Waterways both connecting to the Loch and separately offer numerous opportunities for fishing if you’re looking to relax even further, although travelling to Oban and beyond will open up a new range of things to do.
Oban itself is a small yet lively town, with shops and other local amenities for you to enjoy, including golf courses and old churches. Oban is also a busy ferry port, enabling you to take a trip out to the Western Isles and explore what many people consider the “real Scotland.” You can also take the train from Oban and head north to Fort William; the railway winds through the mountains of the area and will allow you to glimpse some stunning landscape and enjoy seeing some of the local wildlife, too.
Oban Camping and Caravanning Club Site is a true gateway to Scotland, whatever your interests.
