Very good shout, just back from there. Launched and berthed overnight at Dunstaffnage Marina. Stayed at Trallee bay and used the trailer/boat parking area there. The parking is near the slipway, which is very exposed and only usable in near perfect conditions, also there is no jetty to use.
Probably going back next year and do the Islands, weather was too bad to do much more than Etive and a bit of coast hugging (falls of Lora in full flow was so much fun - we did it several times!) My Smartwave 4800 centre console at just under 5m cost £33 for in/out and one night on a berth + £20 deposit for a key fob for the gate and showers.

thanks for the suggestions folks I have passed them on to the other members of the party as were still waiting on one or two to confirm they can get the time off we cant make a decision yet (I think if there's less of us it opens up a few more possibility's )

Oban in May with a large group will be what you can get versus what you want in most cases.

The odd room here or there will be easier for sure.

Did exactly the same, just back (12th to 15th Oct) Parked the trailer next to the caravan, the site was fine with that....we managed Jura & Islay on the Sunday and a wee trip up to Tobermory on the Monday before trailing home.

Video on youtube....Oban Jura Islay

Dunstaffnage do a special rate in the winter months

Puts you right in the mix and Suzuki dealer/Service on site too.

Also stayed at Craobh Haven and Oban Caravan Park in a Lodge all decent...after all it's all about the location and having you're Boats in the Water ready to GO that matters!
..Might see you about in May

Take a look at Salen, a wee bit further west from Oban. Crackin' marina facility, local pub and some nice houses to rent. Example: https://www.unique-cottages.co.uk/co...rnside-cottage
