Loch View is the part of Castle Sween Caravan Park that has been reserved for the caravans that are available to let. As the name suggests, you get a fantastic view of Loch Sween and can see right over the Isle of Danna to Loch Keils and the Sound of Jura with the ruins of Castle Sween in the foreground. At the same time Loch View is convenient to the shop and Rafters restaurant and bar, as well as the Reception and Office, that are centrally situated, and like all the rest of the holiday park nowhere is very far from the sea.
You can rent a two or three bedroom caravan. All are very recent 12ft wide models. For those who have never stayed in a holiday caravan, a week at Castle Sween is just the place to try it out. They consist of a lounge with colour TV, dining area and kitchen/kitchenette with gas cooker, refrigerator and generous working area with lots of cupboard space. There is a bathroom with bath/shower,w.c. and a wash hand basin.
Electricity and gas are included in the price. There are no extras. Kitchens are fully equipped. All beds have duvets. There is nothing you have to bring with you, from 2013 linen is provided (except towels).

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Castle Sween Caravan park provides its guest with facilities to accommodate long visits at the park.
There is a shop that has a large assortment of food and convenience items as well as wines and spirits.
Rafters restaurant and bar provides bar meals and a full service restaurant and bar
There is a Launderette conveniently placed in the middle of the park open 24 hours with two washing machines and two dryers.
There is a slipway where boats of any convenient size capable of being towed by a motor vehicle can be launched and pulled out. Special areas have been set aside where boat owners can park their boats during times when they are not keeping them afloat.
Wide open spaces are available at Castle Sween which can be used for any kind of recreation. We have seen people here flying kites and playing all kinds of games. There are even goal posts so that from time to time a game of football can be organised
Right in the middle of the Holiday Park, and under the very walls of the Castle, buildings which used to be used as the Farm Steading have been cleverly converted with conservation in mind, to provide facilities for a Shop, Restaurant and comfortable Lounge Bar. Bar lunches and main restaurant lunches prove popular also with people who live locally. The restuarant is open every evening except Wednesdays and provides good quality meals at reasonable prices, with a relaxed atmosphere which caters for couples or familys. We also have an extensive carry out menu which is ideal for the nights that you may wish to take a break from cooking. Rafters is very popular and during the main season we would strongly advise that you book a table in advance in order to avoid dissapointment
The lounge is a good place to relax after a hard days walking, boating or exploring the area. Under 18s are welcome in Rafters until 10pm and during the summer holidays we often have a childrens ceilidhs on Wednesday evenings, dont worry if your children are unfamilour with the traditional dances as there is always someone on hand to help.
Rafters is a very low key establishment which offers a great place to relax and unwind, it does not cater for the loud disco type of holiday market and we are sure that you will find that it compliments the holiday park perfectly
