We are just back from our trip at the weekend to Witches Craig Caravan Park. This is our first time to this particular site.

As you approach the park from the Wallace Monument you can see the park through the trees at the roundabout, and right away we all gave a wow.

The park is situated at the very foot of the Ochill Hills and is responsible for some of the very best scenery that caravaning has to offer.

As you turn into the park and approach the reception the wow factor is still maintained. There is a very nice purpose built reception building with the surroundings of the site in a very well kept state.

We were dealt with efficiently at reception and shown where the pitch was located. All the pitches and roads looked as if they had been recently laid or maybe the place was just immaculate?

The pitch was of a very good size with the caravan, awning and car able to fit comfortably onto it.

The park had bin, water and grey water waste locations well placed around the site however there is only one chemical waste point which for us was at the other end of the site. There is a good sized playpark area which was also well laid out for the kid's.

The toilet block for us was also a bit of a walk, which again in dry weather is ok, but if its raining heavy it may become an issue.

The toilet block is coded entry which for me was a mess about. Give me a key card to use any day as there are enough codes and numbers going on in ones head.

I was surprised by the toilets when I got inside as it didn't live up to the rest of the site in my opinion. The toilet block is obviously an older building and was a lot smaller inside than toilet blocks I had encountered on recent visits to other sites. The toilets and shower areas were very clean but there is no privacy at all at the wash hand basin area. The shower cubicles I'm afraid were very cramped and claustrophobic. The shower area itself is a step up off the main floor and into the shower which whilst showering made me feel uncomfortable as you were very aware of the height. Could be nasty if someone slipped and fell out of the shower.

There is an eight minute timer switch for hot water on the shower which isn't a bad idea and you do get eight minutes of continuous hot water with no stop and start buttons.

The kitchen area was well kept and there is a fridge freezer facility in the laundry.

If you leave the site and turn left there is a farm shop a short distance away which sells nice eggs.

Further down the road there is a village with a co-op, a nice Indian takeaway/chip shop(which also delivers to the site) and a pub. Enough for us for a weekend. There is also a Chinese takeaway that delivers to your pitch which is nice and we took advantage of this on the Saturday night.

Wallace Monument is close by, with plenty of walks and cycling routes close to hand.

We had a nice weekend and if your lucky enough to get a hot summers day whilst there it will make for the perfect barbecue location.

10/10 for scenery and we will definitely be back.

We just wanted somewhere near Stirling as a launch point for our journey home; but were so impressed with this site and the wonderful warm reception we received that we will definitely return for a longer stay.

Took advantage of the local Chinese takeaway (which, as others have said, delivers to the site) and had enough left over for our meal when we arrived home the following day. Guinness book of records for furthest Chinese takeaway?

Wonderful location (the Ochills - are there och-forests, och-mountains etc. In Scotland?) - it poured with rain the whole of our stay but otherwise would have been a wonderful site to just sit out and enjoy the scenery.

Wonderful well appointed site with a very warm welcome. Flat site with mainly hard standing which has obviously had a lot of investment.

Nice flat grassy site for tents.

Toilets and shower block warm, modern and immaculate.

Very user friendly motorhome service point.

Library of books available at reception for a donation to charity.

Site deserves all its stars and if there were star awards for dog walks this one should have the maximum. Its through a natural woodland and leads onto a path which climbs the hill at the rear of the site. Possibly could be muddy but our mutts loved it.

Useful tourist map of surrounding area with points of interest, restaurants etc highlighted given when 'checking in'.

Nice and central so useful to break the journey on the M/A9 just turn off through Bridge of Allan.

Suppose its near a busy road but its really not that intrusive.

Nice touch in that the owners encourage feedback from users by asking everyone to fill in a satisfaction survey on leaving.

Lovely site and what a backdrop the Ochil hills make. The hard standing pitches are the biggest I have come across, bags of room for van, awning and car.

As mentioned the separating link fence is a bit low so watch when reversing. At the moment they are busy planting hedging to cut the noise from the busy main road. It has worked on other sites so should do the business here.

There is one toilet block which is spotless and I just love the music.

There is a good local bus service and most drivers stopped at the entrance, but ask when boarding because it is a busy main road. Day ticket £5. 50. The bus stop is about 200 metres away from the entrance.

The reception is a good place for local information, what's on etc and has a good stock of brochures for surrounding area and Scotland. You can also order your daily paper and morning rolls.

There is a kids play park but we did not have the expert on these things with us this trip so cannot really comment on that but the kids playing on it seemed to be enjoying themselves.

This is another site on our must visit again list.

Stayed here for one night, cost £19. 00 for 2 adults, 2 dogs, elec and wi-fi. Site is on a very busy, noisy road but when we mentioned this they gave us a pitch right at the back so it did not bother us.

The dog walk was very good, fenced and wooded you could let dogs off lead. It was a bit muddy though! Site is a 5-min drive from Stirling and there is an outlet village also close by.

Site is well maintained and we would definitely stay there again. Good phone signal.

Husband said white chain-link pitch borders were hard to see when reversing into the pitch being white, a minor point but worth noting.

Lovely site with stunning scenery. Very pleasant and quiet, relaxing. Toilet/shower block would have been better placed more centrally, bit late to change that now though.

Everywhere is clean and well maintained. Staff are generally very cheerful and chatty.

It is about a one mile walk into Causewayhead (all pavement) where there is a good chip shop (doesn't do mushy peas) and the William Wallace pub.

This pub isn't sure about being dog-friendly though, especially on Thursday nights! Probably best avoided.

Good site to visit for a quiet and relaxing break.
