The beach 400 metres away

General

  • Coastal location 400 metres from spectacular Tralee Bay beach
  • On a seven-acre croft eight miles from Oban and the island ferry
  • Boat slipway, putting green, fly fishing and chippy within half a mile

Well now, this is a pretty spectacular spot. Highfield Holidays is a seven-acre croft about eight miles from Oban on Scotland's west coast, in a peaceful rural setting within five minutes' walk of a sandy beach. The site is by the sea with views to forests and hills, surrounded by mountains, lochs, crofts and beaches... seriously, this is a pretty spectacular spot.

It's 400 metres from the croft's main gate to Tralee Bay beach (and only 200 metres to a restaurant and the Tralee Bay chippy), 10 minutes' drive to Forestry Commission marked hiking trails, and 15 to Oban and the ferry to other Highlands isles.

The site has a modern (built in 2017) shower and toilet block with four bathrooms, each with its own shower, basin and toilet. Guests can use the boat slipway, putting green and fly fishing area of the local lodge park, half a mile away.

A café and village shop are also half a mile away; pubs and restaurants are within three miles.

    My Husband and I booked a week at Highfield Holidays.We arrived on Saturday the 29 June 2019 in our Touring Caravan. The Warden was a lovely young man very helpful and friendly.Over the week we were extremely impressed by this mans work ethic. He kept the showers and toilets in emaculate condition.The grounds were also well maintained.Once we were set up we looked out of our caravan window and both went wow! We were surrounded by the most beautiful scenery. After tea we decided to go for a short walk, the warden pointed us in the direction of the sea.The walk was pleasant.When we reached the beach the view took our breath away the whole area is beautiful.Over the week we visited Oban a lovely little fishing town.From Oban you can book a Ferry and go on the three island tour we highly recommend this.Don't want to say to much, nothing beats experiencing this yourself. Back to Oban for food supplies there's Aldi Liddel and Tesco.If you don't want to cook you will be spoiled for choice Oban has lot's of lovely restaurants.We also visited Fort William and had lunch in the towns Wetherspoons the food was good. Talking about food back at the caravan park we were told of a chip shop just up the road from Highfield we were a bit unsure at first, we weren't disappointed we had the best fish and chips ever delicious.We loved our Highfield Holiday so much we asked the warden if we could stay for another two days.We would highly recommend this Caravan park.

    Disliked: 

    That dogs were aloud to run free in the park,only from a safety point of view.(we love dogs) That's it dislike is to strong a word. Concern seems more appropriate. Don't let that small concern bother you.Book and try Highfield Holidays for yourself,you won't be disappointed.

From the manager...

Thank you, James, for your lovely feedback and recommendation. Happy to hear that you enjoyed (and extended) your stay. Thanks for flagging up your concern with dogs being allowed to run free - it's in the T&Cs on our website that dogs must be kept on a lead but we clearly need a sign on the park to reinforce this. Looking forward to seeing you again soon 😊

    Location, short walk to beach opposite, friendly, helpful staff & clean facilities. Walking distance to public transport, caught bus to Oban, 20 minute walk to Benderloch with well stocked shop & restaurant. Nice fish & chips from mobile chippie.

    Disliked: 

    Configuration of shower block as shower & WC in the same cubicle which meant having to wait.

Thank you very much for your review and feedback - we will be installing an additional, separate toilet block next season. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!

    Modern facilities, pitches had loads of space. Close to lovely Tralee Beach
    Free poo bags and bins on site for dog waste
    Friendly staff

    Disliked: 

    Cars kept coming in and turned at our pitch area.
    Some cars entering and leaving the site were sometimes too fast.
    We booked a fully serviced pitch and did not get grey waste drainage on pitch. When I mentioned it to reception they said it was a booking issue with pitchup.com! They did offer to look at finding a pitch the next day but by then we were all set up and unpacked etc. I guess when booking you need to clearly confirm what pitch type is paid for.

From the manager...

Thank you very much for your lovely review and feedback. We do have a 10 mile an hour speed limit sign at the entrance but will look at putting up further signs or taking other measures if this continues to be an issue. Sorry for the ambiguity with the fully serviced pitches - unfortunately, Pitchup classifies a pitch with electric and water to be fully serviced. Hope this wasn't an issue and looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Local attractions

Being this close to the coast, it’s a given that your first outing (weather permitting) should be to toddle off to Tralee beach for a breath of salty sea air. It’ll only take you a few minutes to wander down there for a smashing stroll through the sand dunes and shingle. There’s a play park down there for the nippers and a café for a warming cup of hot choc if it’s a tad breezy.

Intrepid types can plunge deep beneath the surface here to dive the wreck of the SS Breda, a cargo ship bombed in 1940; have a word with one of the dive centres in Oban (15 minutes’ drive away) to set up scuba adventures. While you’re in Oban you can read a bit more about the area’s wartime history at the Oban War & Peace Museum and raise a toast to a calmer future with a dram at the Oban Distillery.

When you’re done with town time, make for Dunstaffnage Castle (15 minutes’ drive), a ruined waterside castle with some cracking sea views. You’ll get heaps of sea views on a Sealife Adventures boat trip round the Firth of Lorne (40 minutes) too – and with any luck, you’ll also be treated to sightings of dolphins, seals and basking sharks.

Must see

  • Glencoe Visitor Centre (26.0 kilometres)
  • West Highland Museum (40.0 kilometres)
  • Treasures of the Earth (42.2 kilometres)
