Red Squirrel Campsite Glencoe

is set in an amazing location in Glencoe the Red Squirrel campsite is a sprawling 20 acres riverside site surrounded by mountains and dotted with mature trees of various varieties.

 

The scenery is stunning and the site offers a great getaway that gives you the opportunity to enjoy a bit of wild camping with neighbours (other campers) and the luxury of toilets, (not the best I have seen).

When I visited in late April the site was clean, tidy and cranking up for the influx of campers.

There’s a variety of pitches from open grass to snug woodland all set over an area of 20 acres and no matter where you pitch your tent you will have breathtaking views.

Most of the grass pitches are located close to the site entrance, if you turn right and follow the track, it’s marked with white painted stones, you start to discover more remote and wild pitches, some are on grass and stoney ground, others set amidst trees and a few beside the river, however, be carefull this area tends to flood when the river is in spate.

Who’s it For

Due to its location Red Squirrel Campsite is popular with mountaineers and hill walkers it also treats you to a bit of a wild camping in Glencoe feel without heading to the bushes when you need the loo.

You may feel you are out in the sticks, however the site is only 1.8 miles from the local shop in the village of Glencoe, about a 40 minute walk and it’s a pleasant one that meanders through a densely wooded area.

Or if you require to stock up with a bunch of groceries there’s a Co-oP at Ballachulish which is just over 3 miles from the campsite.

You can’t help notice why the site location is popular with those who enjoy camping and want to walk the hills of Glencoe. What it lacks in posh facilities is more than made up with the access it gives to those who love the outdoors, the prices are affordable the atmosphere relaxed and a definite for those campers who want to discover the wonders of this fascinating area.
