Port Ban Holiday Park Tarbert - Quiet family orietated holiday park
We are a family run familiy-friendly park ideal for kids. Lots of activities to keep them occupied and give you some well deserved relaxation. Football pitch, large playground, putting green, bowling green, crazy golf course, tennis court, games hall etc. During the school holidays we have organised activities for both younger children and youth. We also have ceilidhs, bonfires and quiznights for all the family. We also have non-denominational christian services on Sundays during the busier weeks and a mid-week bible study -purely optional of course!
The park has a cafe that serves freshly ground coffees and home baking, a small shop, a lounge and a well equipped laundry should you wish to do the washing before you return.
We are right on the coast opposite the Isle of Jura on the mainland with fantastic views of the sea and the paps of Jura. Seals, otters, dolphins, porpoises, whales, eagles , buzzards are all there to be seen along with lots of other interesting plants and birds.
Port Ban is a peaceful haven for those who want to get away from it all.
The sheer beauty of the area and the rich diversity of wildflowers & wildlife never cease to amaze both our new and regular visitors alike. The park has half a mile of completely unspoiled coastline with quiet sandy beaches.
Safe bathing is within easy walking distance. The park has a lovely tranquil atmosphere and parents can relax comfortably whilst the children enjoy the freedom and space which is Port Ban.
Situated on the beautiful and secluded coastal road (B8024) between Tarbert and Lochgilphead, Port Ban boasts perhaps the most spectacular setting on the West Coast. It sits on the West Coast of the Knapdale/Kintyre peninsula, an area largely bypassed by the bulk of tourists who follow the main route north to Oban. Unique for Caravan Parks the vans are widely spaced, each offering a panoramic view of the Islands of Jura & Islay.
This, together with the unspoilt, rugged countryside steeped in history & culture, go together to create an ambience which attracts many types of people. Families who value the luxury of a safe and exciting environment where children can be let loose to explore the countryside, make use of amusements and play with their new playmates predominate in holiday time.
There are also the adventurous types who take advantage of the many activities offered in the natural environment. But if you simply want to sit back, relax and add a few years onto your innings away from the strains of everyday life then look no further.
This is one of the last undiscovered corners of Scotland; indeed the west at it's best. Port Ban has a history of satisfied customers, no matter what their reasons for coming, witnessed by the high percentage who return year after year to enjoy the unique atmosphere and scenery, many of whom end up buying Caravans on the site. Why not come, see for yourself
We are approximately half way (15 miles) round the single track loop (B8024) from Tarbert to just south of Ardrishaig, which gives us a real sense of remoteness. We are 1 mile north of of the tiny village of Kilberry.
