Bunree Caravan Club Site, Onich, Fort William, PH33 6SE, 01855821283
To find site:- South from Fort William on the A82. After about six miles pass Corran Ferry on right. Ignore turning to Bunree and continue across bridge and entrance to site is clearly signed immediately on right. The approach from the main road is single track with passing places and the final section is controlled by traffic lights.
Bunree must have one of the most stunning locations in the Caravan Club network. It is situated right on the shore of Loch Linnhe. The site is slightly terraced with a gentle slope from the rear of the site down to the Loch edge. There are 99 pitches all of which are on hardstandings. The pitches around the perimeter of the site facing the Loch are slightly smaller than those further into the site and awnings are not allowed on these pitches, however they are much sought after. Non-members are accepted but there is no provision for tent campers. There is one single toilet block to a very good standard and it even has a drying room which members can use at their own risk. For children there is an adventure style playground and a games room which has a Pool table. Site wide WiFi is available at normal CC charges. Mobile phone connections seem fine. Reception sells a few essentials. Satellite TV reception can be difficult on most of the campsite because of the mountain immediately behind the site, however digital TV reception was fine using the caravan aerial. Date of visit mid September 2011.
The opportunity for excursions from the site are endless with many of the famous Highland sites being within reasonable travelling distance. Even nearer to home there are lots of places to visit locally including the Glencoe Visitor Centre a few miles away. For shopping Fort Williams is the best bet being about 10 miles from the campsite. There is a Morrisonís supermarket which also sells fuel at a lower price than elsewhere locally. For eating out there are two restaurants within walking distance of the site and a third if you donít mind using the Corran Ferry, although donít leave the return journey too late as the ferries stop just after 9.00pm.
