Stayed here for a weekend.

There is a couple of area's you can pitch your tent.

One is next to the play area (close to the amenities) with stunning views of the Ochill Hills and the other is at the back of the site near the woods.

The latter has under cover sitting area's. It is around a couple of minutes walk to the amenities.

There is also hook ups for tents.

The toilets are 5* Clean and warm, plenty of hot water with piped music. There is an covered area for washing the dishes in the same amenity block.

The rubbish bins are kept in a enclosed area.

You can get papers and rolls at the reception.

You need a £5 deposit for the amenity key (refundable)

The overall lay out of the site is great and well laid out.If you had kids with you the play are is great. It is enclosed by a fence and is in the centre of the site.

You can see the Wallace Monument from the site with Stirling being 3 miles away one way and and Menstrie 2 miles the other. There is walks in the woods.

I would definitely recommend this site.

Lovely friendly campsite in a very picturesque location. The staff were friendly and welcoming when we arrived and gave us directions to our pitch, which was fairly central on the site which was fine but the staff informed us this is usually used mainly for families.

The playground looked well equipped, although we didn't have any 'little people' with us to test this out. Facilities in general where good although there was only one shower / toilet block for the entire site of 60 pitches.

Plenty of shops nearby for stocking up on supplies. Overall a nice campsite ideal for a couple of nights but I wouldn't use it for longer as I found it a bit close to the road which made it a bit noisy at night.

Really good location for access to Stirling and walking and mountain biking trails. A Short walk to Wallace monument which the site nests under. We had a week of bagpipe music coming over the wind from a practising band which was taking part in the Bridge of Allan games. If you are pitching on the hardstanding pitches you will need hardstanding pegs which we had to go out and buy, as we weren't getting anywhere with normal pegs. It was like concrete.

The toilet block is located right at the entrance so it is a bit of a trek for anyone else in the park who isn't pitched there. The block also shuts at 11-12 for the ladies and 12-1 for the men. This is inconvenient when check out time is 1pm, as everyone is trying to use them at the same time. Not too bad in a caravan but there is no where else to go in your are in a tent.

Great access to a dog walk in the forest. No on site shop but you a 2 mins drive from a huge Morrisons supermarket and retail park so getting supplies is no problem.

The site was a good basic base to use for sightsighting in the surrounding area. The tent field is very exposed to wind, except on the curtilage, which we found people had exploited, taking up much more room than needed and leaving large spaces in between pitches. A wind break from the adjoining field would be a good improvement.

The showers were adequete, although if there was a 'family' shower in the Ladies it would save a lot of Waiting time

We did the sight seeing we had planned throughout the area.

There is nothing 'local' within walking distance so we found the evenings a little boring on site, because the weather wasn't good

Reviewer: Mimicman 4 reviews from this member

Just like the last reviewer, this was our first time camping (with a 10 week-old baby to boot) so we decided on this site because it is close to home and seems to have a good reputation.

The people in reception on arrival and departure were first-rate and very friendly and helpful. The site itself is in a beautiful setting nestled up against the lower slopes of Dumyat at the western end of the Ochil hills, so there is no shortage of scenery. The site is located on the A91 between Stirling and Menstrie, so there are plenty of local amenities and tourist attractions, but little within easy walking distance. There is no shop on site but rolls, milk and papers can be ordered from reception.

The layout of the site was a little less than intuitive, however, and I share the previous reviewer's concern that most of the facilities (toilets, showers, laundry, play area) were located very near the entrance to the site. As the main tent area is at the very rear of the site, this meant a good old walk to use any of the facilities. That's no problem during the day, but it's a right old pain at 4am when it's raining.

To be fair, despite their location, the facilities are superb: warm, scrupulously clean and served by a welcoming 24hr radio feed. I should also add that there are points for drinking water, waste water and rubbish/litter provided throughout the site, so you won't have to walk far for those. The play area is small but well-equipped, although some of the apparatus was a little too big for my 4 year-old daughter.

All in all this was a very positive first experience for my family and I and, despite one or two minor niggles, we really enjoyed our stay here. There is a lovely atmosphere at this site and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for families with younger kids.

This is a lovely site spotless toilets, very friendly owners,small shop you can order milk & papers for the morning, what a view of the Ochil hills, you can climb to the top if your fit enough as quite a few did when we were there, there's also a kids play park which the kids seemed to love, the park was also quiet at night no drunken carry on when your trying to sleep, Itís handy for Stirling shops, Castle, Wallace monument and much more, will return soon.

The only thing that annoyed me was having to pay extra to use my canopy, no sides just the roof, thought this was a bit greedy, a few sites seem to be doing this now. Still a nice site for all the family.
