General

  • Scenic and peaceful site beside a loch on Craignish peninsula
  • Paradise for ramblers and explorers
  • No signs, no rules, no regulations

Working life getting you down? Need a break from having to do what you’re told? At Ardfern Motorhome Park, a small site less than five minutes’ drive from the village of Ardfern on Argyll’s Craignish peninsula, there are no signs, no rules, no regulations, no check-in or checkout times and nothing to stop you relaxing thoroughly throughout your stay.

Ardfern Motorhome Park is a top spot for ramblers, as Scotland’s freedom to roam rights mean there’s nothing getting in the way of exploring every inch of the Craignish peninsula. Stroll along the stunning sea loch to Ardfern village for shops and eats or wander the hills and woodlands around the site, soaking in the views of the Highlands coast.

When you feel like letting a horse do all the walking, Lunga Riding Stables – from where you can ride through forest tracks or along the shore using English or Western tack – is 10 minutes away on the other side of the peninsula. You can also explore the peninsula and the islands of the Inner Hebrides on water if you bring a boat or kayak, or by climbing aboard a guided boat trip.

On site, there’s nothing to do but relax: fire up a barbecue whenever you get peckish and share the spoils with your family canine, who’s also welcome on your rambles, or head to Ardfern’s hotel-bar-restaurant for something you don’t have to cook yourself.

    Disliked: 

    not worth the money £50 for 2 nights with no amenities the shower facilities was a wooded shed on a trailer definitely not covid safe shower curtain was black moldy probably not seen a clean since covid that's me being totally honest i don't have a problem paying that price along as you have some decent amenities ie proper shower facilities maybe a washer drying facility I think £50 is far to much for what you have available.

    Everything about Ardfern Motorhome Park is just a little magical. Very basic, simply built toilet and washing block, and powerful, again simply constructed, shower just add to the feeling of the place. Each pitch has lots of space around it , and the view over the water is stunning.
    We both felt just so incredibly relaxed being there.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Scottish escape not complete without a wee dram (or two)? Bag a tour and a drop of the uisge beatha (that’s Scots Gaelic for ‘the water of life’) at Oban Distillery – close to the coast on the Sound of Kerrera in the town of Oban – to learn all about the whisky-making process at this working distillery.

For history buffs, the Kilmartin Museum of prehistory and the ruined Carnasserie Castle are within 20 minutes of Ardfern, and the Easdale Island Folk Museum is a puddle-hop away from Oban. Those who like their hols more lush than illuminating should make tracks for Arduaine Garden, 15 minutes from the site, and Crarae Garden Argyll, 45 minutes away.

If you have extra time and don’t object to longer car journeys, a jaunt to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park less than an hour and a half from Ardfern is a must – it’s a top spot for climbing, angling, cycling and hiking, and you can get out on the water for watersports (try windsurfing, paddleboarding, canoeing, kayaking and sailing), water buses (great for the A to B, or for some sightseeing) and cruises.

Cycle routes
