As a first time camper I was very nervous but I needn't have been because this site was better than I could have ever expected. The staff were very friendly and I noticed that one of the girls did checks every so often round the park to make sure everything was OK.

The toilets were clean and the play area although probably only suitable for under 10s was of high quality too. The only negative thing I would say is that the play park would have been better situated in the centre rather than at the entrance and then all campers could keep an eye on their children.

I sat with my 8 year old in the park while he played as I was too scared to leave him as it was so close to the entrance. However, that said we all had a great time and met some lovely people. The park wasn't noisy at night (apart from the sheep on the hills)

Would really recommend this site so much so that we plan to go again next weekend.

Another excellent week at Witches Craig. I cannot fault this campsite. It is very central, we left the car at Stirling and took the train to Edinburgh, which took less than an hour. We were only 40 mins from Knockhill racetrack as well.

The facilities are 5*, plentiful hot water and extremely clean. The radio is a nice touch in the toilet blocks too!

A fridge freezer in the laundry room for iceblocks etc 2.40 for a load of washing, which we managed to dry outside as the weather was beautiful, 1 for around 15 mins in the tumble drier.

The staff are very friendly and helpful too.

The dog walk was free from litter and doggy do's and although we didn't have our dog with us this time it was still a pleasure to have a walk every evening.

There is a playpark but our 3 yr old never used it so cant comment on it, but it looked well maintained.

Beautiful site in an excellent location for exploring the surrounding area. The Ochil Hills form a stunning backdrop to the site.

On arrival, we were met by very friendly and helpful staff and, although there is no site shop, there was the opportunity to order newspapers, rolls, etc. There is ample shopping nearby.

Touring caravan pitches are almost all hardstanding - make sure you have rock pegs for your awning.

Toilet/shower block was always very clean and the piped music was a good feature. A second hairdryer in the ladies would be handy.

Dog walking area is very close by and can easily be extended into a decent walk.

We would recommend this site and it is our intention to return in the future.

This was our second visit to the site. This is a well run facility with good facilities. The toilets are regularly cleaned and the washing facilities were modern and well lit.

Pitch layout ensures good privacy and the staff are friendly and helpful. Sensibly located motorhome service point ensured easy access to grey water dump and chemical disposal.

This site is a gem and I warmly recommend it *****

My fiancee and I bought our first tent to try camping for the very first time in the morning and arrived at this lovely site in the afternoon. As we had bought the large Sahara 6 tent we were concerned about getting a pitch as we have seen some sites only take a certain size of tent.No fears here as we were warmly accepted.

Extremely friendly greeting which remained all through our stay. Site was spotless as was the dish washing / laundry / toilet block and is a credit to the owners and staff.

We took a walk up the Ochil hills and the views are superb and are worth the effort.

Thanks to the lovely weather, location and the warm welcome we will be back again through the summer.

Excellent site which deserves all the credit it receives.

We booked in for 2 nights but stayed 3 as the weather (and the site) were wonderful!

On arrival we were greeted warmly at reception. I did expect the tent field to be much bigger but as it was early in the season there were very few tents there.

The tent area is a bit bumpy and uneven but we found an area to pitch easily, might not be so easy in busier months. What a relief to be able to hammer in tent pegs with ease! We didn't need to use them as the weather was fab but the undercover huts would have been great had it rained. Water was available on the tent field which was handy, the addition of fire points nearby was reassuring!

The toilet block was the best I've known. Heated and very clean. We didn't have to queue for showers but again the park was not even a quarter full so not sure how this might be in the summer months. Music in the toilets is a great idea. The dishwash area again was kept clean and tidy as was the laundry room which had a washer and dryer, an iron and a freezer (great for our ice packs!).

The dog walk area was really welcomed as our dog is a huge part of our family, however, as we are so careful to clear up after our dogs I also think that children or parents of children should be asked and reminded to clear up their kids juice bottles and sweetie wrappers, the entrance to the dog walk area was littered with sweet wrappers.

The surrounding areas were gorgeous although the weather was so nice we hardly ventured off site! The coffee bothy just 5 minutes walk down the (very very busy!) road, we took the car because of this was lovely, we ate outside from the takeaway section but beware it closes at 2.30pm, some beautiful meals cooked on site as well as cakes and biscuits.

So the bad points. Well to be honest there were virtually none, one I've mentioned was the litter in the dog walking area and the only other one was the tent field being furthest away from the amenity block. The addition of even a portaloo in the tent field would be great for late night visits. Even that didn't bother us that much but again that was due to the weather, I wouldn't fancy making that walk at 2am in the dark when it's pouring of rain.

All in all a most excellent site that we'll visit again, although I will go out of season as I feel it might be very very busy with children in the summer months.
