Two static Caravans, one with double bedroom and one with a double and twin bedrooms, also new Whalebone Bothy - two doubles.
Prices range from £200 low season for the smaller caravan to £350 high season for the Whalebone Bothy.
Camping is on a series of leveled terraced pitches, all with stunning views across to the north end of the Island of Mull. The entrance is steep and the pitches are spread out in a series of staggered terraces making it unsuitable for towed caravans to effectively turn. Camper vans are welcome, there are 3 hook up pitches reserved for their use.
Onsite facilities include, free showers, refrigerator, washing up area, washing machine & tumble drier (at a small extra charge), classroom with wildlife and geology displays. Minke Whale and Cuvier's Beaked Whale skeletons.
Study Centre: The Study Centre classroom can be booked (at a small extra charge) for exclusive use by groups. Most of the time it is available for use by visitors to the campsite at no extra charge. This is especially useful for geology students camping on the site.
Ardnamuchan Study Centre and Campsite is situated to the west of the beautiful village of Kilchoan at the western end of the Ardnamurchan peninsula. Fort William is 60 miles away along beautifully scenic mainly single track roads. There is a direct link to Tobermory on Mull by car ferry which takes about 40 minutes.
The Ardnamurchan Study Centre is a converted 18thC croft house and is equipped with field microscopes and facilities for Power Point digital presentations. There is a small library and a number of exhibits with much of a Minke Whale skeleton including the skull and jawbones. The classroom is available for hire by the hour, day or week. Please enquire for costs. Hiring the classroom can be combined with campsite pitches and caravans.
School and Youth groups are welcome, however the site becomes VERY busy from mid July to mid August and large groups are advised to book out with these times if at all possible.
Semi wild camping is now possible next to the shore below the main site at any time the main site is open.
Fragrant Orchids, Greater Butterfly Orchids and Heath Spotted Orchids all flower in June on the croft and neighbouring crofts. The Early Purple Orchids flower in early June on the limestone beds near the shore to the west of the campsite.
During the spring and summer there can be good sightings of harbour porpoises from the campsite, also numerous otter sightings both from the campsite and nearby. Also seals, Buzzards Hedgehogs, Swallows, Pine Marten, Night Jar and Golden Eagle.
BOOKING ADVISED FOR CAMPSITE IN JULY AND AUGUST. Minumum booking is two nights with a non returnable deposit of one night in July and August. Sorry no single night bookings during the main holiday period.
