The campsite is within easy reach of the town, only a 5-10 minute walk depending on pace. The areas surrounding the pitches are very well maintaine, with plenty of space and picnic benches. The toilets and shower facilities are the cleanest I have ever encountered, better than some of the 5* hotels I've stayed in. The area around the site is well lit even at night, with enough light to feel safe walking around the site but not enough to keep you awake at night - well balanced. The staff and visitors were very friendly, the shop was reasonably priced with everything you could possibly need - would recommend their morning rolls, perfectly fresh and tasty! Yum rolls on bananna!

While we were in the area we visited another site Fas**ly which seemed over crowded, quite muddy and not entirley as it was made out. So glad that they were full as we would not have had the pleasure of staying at Milton of Fonab. What a site. This has been a great experience, which I would recommend to anyone wanting to camp near Pitochy and look forward to a repeat visit.

The only thing I would say is if your looking for the wireless internet connection you may struggle in some places but if your that desperate just walk up towards the shop. Overall the best place I have ever stayed Well Done guys!

Booked last minute with this site. Got their last caravan. Arrived late on the Saturday, van was all ready for us and what a cracking van it was. Had a great week decided to stay for another week, they managed to keep us in the same van. Site is clean and healthy, numerous shower blocks are immaculate any time of day or night.
The little shop was always well stocked. Loads of rabbits and ducks for the kids to see.

5 minutes walk to Pitlochry.

A fantastic location for touring / sightseeing Scotland.

It was a pleasure staying hare and we'll be definitely staying here again. 10 / 10

Stayed here for 3 nights the shower/toilets were very clean. Well stocked shop, free wireless internet but some times hard to connect. Pitches are all level, and are a good size. Only a short walk to Pitlochry. This is one site I would come back to without any hesitation. The only downfall is that there is no park for the kids to play.

Stayed 5 nights from 12th June. There have always been plenty of rabbits on this site and I've been going here on and off since I was 10. So that's 28 years.

This year we had a dog and she was fine. I suppose it depends on breed and upbringing etc.

Site still up to standard although I mentioned last year that I thought prices were getting high for what you get. I suppose as you are near town this is to be expected. Weekends tend to get busy as they now seem to have a number of permanent touring vans on site as well as the field of statics.

Pitlochry what to say? 2 distilleries, you can walks to both if you are adventurous. Hydro power station to visit, fish ladder and dam, hillside garden near theatre, Great theatre, good shopping and food. Plenty of good local walking and cycling. Forest walking at The Hermitage, Killiecrankie and many other fairly local sites.

Don't forget the Highland Night on Mondays, this is held on the rec or in doors if wet. See posters for details, they get put up almost eveywhere. Enjoy

Cheap, compared with Cambridge, fuel at Perth.

I agree the showers & toilets are super & spotlessly clean, it's also good to have shop but, we were unfortunate in being greeted on our arrival by an aggressive although efficient receptionist.
We were disappointed to find that our only view was of a continuous row of statics resembling army barracks!

During our stay we wittnessed a young lost child unable to find his way back to his static as there was nothing to indicate any differences. This could be solved by issueing young children with a wrist band with the static pitch number they are resident in, on the band or the statics could have an animal shaped transfer on each end.

Having said this the site is very convenient to the town, and as motor home owners our needs are different to campers in caravans, tents or Statics. We have stayed at this site a couple of years ago but, I can not remember the unsightly statics or the other field having such small pitches, we will not be returning to this site.

Lovely site, within walking distance of town. Shower blocks very nice. Staff nice. BUT, we booked whilst travelling. We were on a hard standing with awning, which was allocated for us. There was less than a car width both sides, between our unit and the next. This is as we all know a fire hazard. Our own fault, too tired / hungry to walk back to reception and complain. To be fair some others had a slightly wider gap.
The site is overun with rabbits, which drove our dog crazy. Unfortunately because of these two negative things we left early, only staying 2 nights instead of 4.
Worth noting: During the summer on Monday's at 7.45pm there is a Highland Night on the nearby recreation field where you are entertained by pipe marching bands, dancers and singers for £5 ea. You can take your car on the field and sit in your car and watch it.
