Lochnell Primary School is a non-denominational and co-educational school situated in the village of Benderloch on the main Oban to Fort William road. The building is single storey and was opened in 1992. The teaching bays in the original building are semi open plan. The new extension teaching bays are open plan. The entire building is well maintained and along with the surrounding scenery provides attractive accommodation for the primary school.

A joint school and community project was completed to provide and maintain and all weather pitch adjacent to the school. The pitch is used very well by the school every day. The community have access to the pitch out with school times and the public can book it at the local garage.

The building has facilities for pupils and visitors with special access needs. We enjoy good links with Oban High School as our associated secondary school. Lochnell Primary has a Pre5 Unit within the school for 3 and 4 year olds.
