Stayed here one night, cost was 20. 50 for 2 adults, 2 dogs and elec which we felt was a little high considering it was late Sept.

A big site with a lot of statics and lots of site rules posted up everywhere! Our original pitch was allocated overlooking the backs of the statics but we managed to find an alternative pitch which gave us some lovely views.

We found the site to be a bit unfriendly towards dogs, with notices everywhere asking you not to let your dog foul anywhere on site. Similarly, there is no dog walk on site either.

We were told there was a nearby recreation ground we could let the dogs run on but it had just been used for an event and was extremely muddy so this wasn't an option.

It was a short walk into Pitlochry which is a very nice town. We would not stay here again having 2 dogs.

Stopped here for three nights on way from far north. Our third visit. Given a pitch at the far end of the site opposite the tent area - where our son was pitched. Lovely open outlook if a bit exposed. Site facilities are good, although there is only one Chemical Disposal Point at the top of the site for over 170 pitches. It was a long walk from our pitch at the other end of the site!

Pitlochry town is a ten minute walk from the site and offers a good selection of shops and restaurants. (Can recommend Victoria's - not cheap - but good!). The town is still living to some extent on its Victorian splendor with the main street buildings having covered walkways with hanging baskets adding a touch of colour. Oh yes, almost forgot, it boasts two distilleries and a micro-brewery!

The Festival Theatre hosts some top rated acts, whilst a drink at the Port na Craig Inn opposite is very pleasant. Continue with a walk alongside the salmon leap, then through the power station over the dam and you come out at the top of the town. There are also several pleasant short walks around the town and area.

Alas the weather did what it often does - rained after two days - for 36 hours solid. Having been marooned when the Tay burst its banks on a previous visit, we decided to head south a day early. There was no refund, so our stay had cost a net of 32 a night!

This is a good site in a lovely town giving access to a picturesque area - if you get good weather. We will come back - but will check the weather forecast first!

This is a fantastic site I head here loads of times per year. The staff are very good and better once they get to know you. A home from home for me and looking forward to heading there in April. Ideal walking distance to the town only ten minutes.

Lovely well kept site on the edge of Pitlochry with just a short walk to town, the theatre, the river, the famous salmon ladder and dam and Loch Faskally. Excellent facilities, very clean, not too far from any of the pitches and even has rooms with a bath!

Very well stocked shop which seemed to open early and shut late and very friendly helpful staff.

Only one wee minus for us. Our pitch was close to the shop and the site entrance so we were aware of traffic coming and going and woken early by the arrival of the baker's van and the slamming of his van doors.

Not sure if this would suit families with children as there didn't appear to be anything for them to do on site.

A definite 10/10 site will be back only stayed for a night but wished wed stayed longer.

Took 3 kids and two dogs and we all loved it.

Peace and quiet, well maintained. The best loos and showers I've ever seen.

Worth the money for us at 23.00 a night, been to other sites paying this much and this is the best yet.

Beautiful scenery and weren't all crammed in plenty of room around van and everyone was really nice.

kids loved the little stream and the ducks and my dogs loved the walk in the forest 2 minutes up the road.

Shops, pubs and restaurants pricey in pitlochry but there's a chippy which serves huge chips on the main street which we loved.

We have just returned from a week at Milton of Fonab. Its a lovely site with great facilities, hot showers (only thing is the water needs to be on for longer than 15 seconds) and shop is well stocked and the staff are friendly.

The weather wasn't too bad for the time of year. The site is also very handy for theatre( lots of different shows on),the restaurants and Pitlochry town centre. A very varied selection of shops and cafes.

Its worthwhile a visit when the Highland games are on. Will definitely being going back.
