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.

Very very nice site just outside Pitlochry, with good sized pitches, the site is divided into different sections, i.e vans with awnings, no awnings no kids, no awni,gs. I'd never heard of this before but it seems to work well.

The toilet and shower blocks were spotlessly clean with cubicles including toilet shower and sink , in another section of the site there are cubicles with baths for you to have a good soak !

There is a good wee shop onsite which has free dvds and videos for you to use, site staff were very friendly and helpful.

A 15 minute stroll will have you in pitlochry centre, lots of wee gift shops and a couple of pubs, we ate in Drummonds just under the railway bridge good food and a very friendly welcome.

Definately recommend this site for beautiful views and peace and quiet!

Just came back from this site - have used it in the past as its handy as you can just walk into Pitlochry - now has free wireless internet access. We loved the bathrooms as well (showers are alright but cant beat a soak in the bath!)Loos were spotless - you can hear some traffic noise from the main road but its minimal. Nice site if you just want peace and quiet.

Been going here for over 20 years. Up to usual standards but I feel getting a bit pricey compared to others for the money. However great for Pitlochry, easy walking to town, fish ladder dam, pubs, restaurants, distillery etc.

Fishing available on site to residents.

Easy access to main road, for north south travel.

Showers and toilets upgraded a couple of years ago and are good, small shop seems to stock most things if not there's a co-op in town.

Level site with some hard standing and hookups.

Very easy to find from the directions.
A decent sized pool of water where the caravan was supposed to go but we managed.
Site is advertised as well drained. I Know exceptional rainfall had been experienced but a few pitches need to be leveled off. Showers and toilets are excellent, I like the idea of a small cubicle with the toilet, shower and wash basin and a seat. Beware! the power of the shower will knock you off your feet!
The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble.
A bit of a walk into town for anyone with mobility problems, but we found that the local taxi's are quick and reasonable.
Blair Atholl distillery only 5 minutes walk away.
Recommend the Spice of India restaurant, we had a superb meal there, also The Mill, but beware, although they say you don't have to have a meal at The Mill they still pester you. If you like whisky there are about 60 behind the bar, so much and so little holiday!
Pitlochry is a beautiful little town and there is lots to do in the area.
We left the car behind and took the train to Inverness for the day and missed the only heavy rain they had on the site all week.
Also recommend The Fishers Hotel Scottish evening on a Thursday 9pm to 11pm. A great Holiday would go back anytime.
