This friendly, family run site lies in a quiet, picturesque location at the foot of Glen Duror. The park is well sheltered and is a real sun trap in the summer months. A track, which is part of the Sustrans cycle network, has recently been constructed and runs parallel to the park. It is an excellent, safe route for walking your dog, jogging and cycling and will eventually join up with the Ballahulish and Appin routes.
We currently have 2 Camping Pods situated in a quiet corner of the site. These are essentially wooden tents and are designed for ‘Camping in the 21st century’. All you need to do is bring your sleeping bags, food, tea and coffee etc. Camp beds/Blow up mattresses, chairs, plates, cutlery, mugs, stove, cooking utensils and a table are all provided. There is light and a heater in the Pods and they are well insulated.
And finally...... no wet tents to take down at the end of the trip! What more could you ask?
Our site welcomes Motor homes, Caravans, Trailer tents, Tents and even American sized RV's. Dogs are also welcome.
The shower block incorporates waterless urinals and shaver points in the Gents, hair dryer in the ladies and automatic lighting, self closing taps, central heating and insect mesh screens in the double glazed window units. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our facilities and they are checked numerous times throughout the day. The disabled toilet also includes baby changing facilities.
The ‘campers’ kitchen includes sinks for food prep and dishes, a sink for hand washing clothes, washing machine and tumble dryer, fridge freezer, toaster, kettle, microwave and a small reading library where you can exchange your books and magazines.
The Park is licensed for 40 touring pitches (big pitch sizes), of which 37 have electrical hook-ups, WiFi is available on request.
We are open all year, with the exception of one week, 16th Jan - 24th Jan.
