The Blackwater Campsite is situated adjacent to the Blackwater Hostel overlooking the River Leven. It 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. 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.
