Alan Rogers Review

Glencoe Camping & Caravanning Club site is nestled on the edge of the eco-friendly Glencoe National Trust for Scotland Visitor Centre. It has interactive displays, a shop and a café. In nearby Glencoe, the Glencoe and North Lorn Folk Museum gives an interesting insight into the history of the area. There are plenty of activities to choose from with Glencoe Activities in Ballachulishor, ranging from golf and canyoning to rib and Segway tours. More relaxing pursuits include a ferry ride across Loch Linnhe or embark on what is regarded to be one of the greatest railway journeys in the world from Fort William on the Jacobite steam train. Whichever of the pitches you choose at Glencoe, you are guaranteed stunning views of the surrounding mountains. The site has 100 grass or hardstanding pitches most with electric hook-up. Some seasonal.

N.B. Non-members are welcome and may join on site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

Walking boots are a must if you visit Glencoe, surrounded by National Trust for Scotland managed woodland, this is wonderful walking country. The West Highland Way passes within nine miles and there are many low and high level walks to choose from. You can even bag yourself a Munro or two as there are eight close to the site.
