A new favourite campsite for us, in a fabulous location with excellent, clean facilities and the bonus of a farm shop and veggie cafe on site. We use the farm shop a lot - it's open from 9-6, so we could buy home made bread and eggs for breakfast and delicious sausages, burgers, wine, snacks, and all sorts of fruit & veg when we got back after a day out. Our son has a serious dairy allergy so it's always a treat for him to find places such as Pillars stocking interesting vegan goodies. We didn't have a chance to eat in the cafe but it was really handy to get take-away hot drinks when we couldn't be bothered to boil our kettle. And it was lovely to see that both the shop and cafe always seemed to busy with locals. The kids enjoyed the squirrel trail in the woods near the cafe.

We used Pillars as a base to go to the Fringe in Edinburgh (about 50 minutes drive) and also to St Andrews, which meant that we didn't have a lot of time to explore the immediate, lovely area. A shame, but the upside is we'll just have to go back.

Decided to try this site at the end of August for one night. Great little site on an organic farm just outside Falkland. Clean toilets shared by customers using the farm shop and great cafe. GF and V meals served all day with daily specials. Separate shower room and campers wash up room adj to shop. Two choices of where to pitch, first is a large flat open field which is further away from the toilets and you can take your car on to the field. Secondly is the fantastic orchard field which as the name suggests has plum and apple trees in abundance. No cars allowed there although parking is only 30 yards away. The bus stop to St Andrews and Falkland is right outside the site door and great walks through the Falkland estate start on the site. Great fire pit and rustic seating complete a great little site (firewood available to purchase at shop).

Great small campsite, split into two areas, The Orchard and further along is The Bankings, cars allowed in The Bankings field but not in the Orchard. Staff friendly and helpful, you book in at the shop. Toilet, shower and washing up facilities were very clean, also used by customers in shop/cafe. Would recommend this site.

Just back from a lovely but very windy weekend at this site. We were welcomed in the shop on arrival and pitched with 3 other family's on Bankings field, we were slightly concerned that the facilities were a bit distant from the site however this was all part of the adventure and we never had to queue for showers or toilets. It was fantastic fun to go hunting for twigs and have a great fire both evenings. Our small children all enjoyed the farm trail and eating eggs laid by the chickens on site. There is no park/ play facilities but the children had loads of space to run around and play ball.

We will definitely be back.

A last minute decision to go camping and we were dubious about going to Pillars as it said there were only 6 pitches. Please don't let this put you off. It is an AMAZING wee place! The previous reviews sold us to book so thank you, ensure this helps you book too. Very quaint, secluded camp site situated within the orchard and strawberry fields but only a 30 second walk to get to the beautiful organic café/farm shop. Shower facilities - great, campers wash up area - great, . Logs available to buy for only £5 if you want a camp fire (a must!), recycling area and everything is environmentally friendly. Wee short walks to the local town of Falkland (gorgeous) plus longer more energetic ones for the trepid walker. LOADS to do! Staff are sooooo friendly and helpful too. Need I say more.

I stayed at Pillars of Hercules Bankings Field for one night in September and very much enjoyed the site.

You can camp in the Orchard or Bankings Field, and the cost for my tent and myself was £8. You can park your car next your tent in Bankings, but if you camp in the Orchard you park next the Pillars of Hercules restaurant and shop which is just a two minute walk away. The shop and café are very busy all day, but the campsite was quiet when I was there, only two other campers in the Bankings field, which is bounded by hedges and looks over farmland and hills. The site is very basic with just a water point in the field and it's a short walk back to the only toilets at the shop. There is one shower for ladies and one for gents and the loos are also used by the café visitors, and there's a washing up point for campers.

It's pretty dark walking along from the site to the loos - the darkness is nice as it's part of camping in the country - but a few lights to help point the way to the loos in the middle of the night would have been handy. Bankings was very quiet, which I enjoyed and bonfires are allowed (you can buy firewood for £5 a bag or pick up fallen wood). I got a great view of the stars sitting up late with a nice camp fire - lovely!

Pillars of Hercules is an organic restaurant and shop which stocks a good range of foods, also fruit and vegetables grown on the farm. There are lovely walks, including a farm trail round the crops, polytunnels and hen run. Falkland is a 20 minute walk away, and it's a short drive to Strathmiglo where there is a Co-op. There are no specific facilities for children, but there's masses of space for outdoor fun.

I enjoyed my stay and would camp here again - in particular I enjoyed the rurality and quietness.
