Just returned from a pleasant stay at this site, chosen for its close proximity to Loch Earn with its good reputation for trout fishing. Alas, the trout fishing drew a blank but the stay was pleasant anyway.
This is quite a large site with plenty of grassy space for children to play on while the adults enjoy a glass of something and admire the lovely views all around. There is no children's play equipment - just the grass and any amount of shore stones to throw in the water
There is a little cabin with ladies', gents' and disabled facilities. Quality electric showers. The black and grey emptying points as well as the single potable water point are located next to this cabin. The cabin itself can be a fair walk from your pitch if you have any mobility issues.
Everything in the facilities block was clean and tidy. The toilets drain to a septic tank and there is the usual instruction not to put unsuitable objects down the loo but instead to put them in the bin provided. There is a bin provided in the ladies' but not in the gents'.
Unfortunately, the only other bin for general waste provided in the whole site is located next to the warden's hut and shop at the lochside. This is completely inadequate for 5 units. At one point in my stay I found the bin full and I was one of only two units there. This same bin also caters for the detritus from the many fishermen using the loch and keeping their boats there. This facility really needs improved.
The site is very handily located just about a mile from Lochearnhead which itself has very little in the way of amenities, although it is picturesque, as is St. Fillan's at the other end of the loch. The nearest town with any significant offerings in the way of shops is Comrie, about 8 miles away.
The warden here is a busy and a helpful chap and is on site all day - issuing fishing permits, arranging boats, administering the CL, cutting the grass, etc. He is also a water bailiff and is good for advice on the fishing. He goes off home at about six and ties up the entrance gate, so anyone arriving late back from a day out would have to untie and retie the gate rope. Not a big deal!
Altogether, a very pleasant site and well worth a visit - especially when they get a few more bins in place.
