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.

Just had our first towing experience to Milton of Fonab for a Mon -Fri break. Found site very friendly from arrival to departure. Toilet / shower facilities spotlessly clean considering site was very busy. There are bathrooms on site which have toilet, sink & bath which was ideal for us as we had a 1 year old and not very easy taking into the shower.
There is a little shop and the kids enjoying going to see the lady in there who was also very friendly. Site situated in an ideal spot, not too far into the town to walk or the other attractions in Pitlochry. Very happy with our break

Had a midweek and Easter weekend break with our tourer at this wonderful site. The sitewas almost full atEaster but it was so quiet you would never have known it. The cleanliness of the site was of a very high standard. The shower/toilet block was spotless and the individual shower pods were great with plenty of room to move and not get your clothes wet.The only fault is you have to press the shower button every 20/30 secs to keep the water flowing and be warned the water can get too hot. The shop was well stocked and open from 8am to 9.30pm.

Ideally situated, the site is about a 10 minute walk from town. There are lots of shops,pubs and eating places to suitall tastes. There is plenty to do in and aroundPitlochry. TheFestivalTheatreis 10 mins away and if there are no performances scheduled during your visit,it has a lovely art gallery,cafe and gift shop.Just up from the theatre is the Ladder Dam where you can watch salmon swimming up river to reach their spawning ground.

The whiskey distillery is 5 mins from the site and a gems workshop next to the tourist information centre at the entrance to the town.
A bit further away is Perth, about 20/25mins drive. Take a drive along the shores of Loch Rannoch, the sceneryis breathtaking. The snow was still on the peaks when I was there it was wonderful.
This was my first visit to the area but it will not be my last, Milton of Fonab is a winner with me and I will definitely be going back.
