Taynuilt caravan park? Bit of thebanjoes playin toit but cheap as chips n ull have room for all your gear n a freezer for ya bait. Also u n the missus can do your besttorock the van aff its foundations!!!!!! Plus nice bit of river at backof v small park. Or change tack altogether n go to castle bay near portpatrick or a nice chalet at barrend near sandhead- private carplake on door step- u can bbq your catch- not the carp obviously. Always thought hotels over rated, over priced n lackin in privacy n freedom- HERES TO BREAKFAST IN THE BUFF!!!

Our angling party stayed in the Kelvin hotel in Oban, B&B cost around £38 and evening meals were excellent and quite cheap. Licenced non smoking hotel. Only drawback was it had no parking facilities, but a pay and display car park across the road from front of hotel. Situated at the ferry terminal.
If returning to fish for skate, would certainly go back to the Kelvin.
