The Blackwater Campsite is situated adjacent to the Blackwater Hostel overlooking the River Leven and is ideal for those walking the West Highland Way as it is the first campsite you come to as you walk down into the village from Glencoe. Many of our guests tell us it’s, “The best equipped site along the West Highland Way”. The camping ground is ideally located for those with tired legs as it is right in the centre of the village, and just a few minutes walk to the supermarket, pubs, fish & chip shop and post office. The Ice Factor is right next door to us which also has a good shop with basic camping supplies.
The campsite itself has 30 camping pitches with a maximum of 2 man tents allowed, larger tents are not permitted on the campsite. Following the feedback from many of our guests, we are now taking bookings for camping online via our website. And so for any campers wishing to ensure they have a pitch in advance you can now do so but don’t worry if you have not reserved a spot as you can still check in on the day, as we will always have space. Our camping guests have the use of the following facilities: free WIFI, unlimited showers in our newly renovated shower block with plenty showers to go around for all (hand soap, shower gel & shampoo provided) toilets, power points to charge mobile phones, two drying rooms with commercial dehumidifiers to ensure all your wet gear will be nice and dry for you in the morning, covered seating & pot wash area.
Please note that there are no cooking facilities on the campsite but the use of small camping stoves is allowed. Dogs are allowed also but must be kept on lead at all times.
