Lovely views and great beach over the road from the site. Very noisy road only a few feet away from the touring area with traffic all night long. Small pitches and very cramped. Good facilities up at the main building but would definitely not stop in the touring field again due to the traffic noise.

Absolutely rubbish. Tight sloping pitches next to a busy main road AND a train line! Way to dangerous for kids. Bar and entertainment great, but who pays over 20 a night to have to pay again to use the pool. Such a shame as the views are amazing and the area lovely. A trip into Burntisland is a must and if you have kids fork out half the price of the site pool to use the local pool with its slide and wave machine. The beach in Burntisland is lovely too with notice clean sand

Just awful. Pads are small, very uneven and sloping. Power for central pads all from one location so cables everywhere including under neighbouring caravans. Facilities OK when site was very quiet but with less than half spaces occupied became dirty and unpleasant. Despite being presented with a list of 22 rules on arrival (plus a key for the facilities with a 10 deposit and I never found the door locked!) it appears that the rules, such as no ball games, bbqs, unattended kids in the toilet/shower block etc, mean nothing. However, we drive a pick up, our only vehicle, and were told that we would not be allowed to park near our caravan as it was a working vehicle (not true, it's new, not signwritten and we are both pensioners!) So we were banished to the car park down the hill, by the park entrance and had to walk! Wouldn't ever visit again, wouldn't recommend. Bad attitude and pricey. Shame really - nice spot.

I stayed here for 1 night and that was enough.

We were really disappointed in the tourers site. The pitches were uneven, it is right next to the busy main road with constant noise of traffic during the whole night,

There is only a small wall and fence dividing the site from the road which I found really unsafe as it would be so easy for a child to climb over,

The play park was away up at main caravan site therefore nothing much to do on tourers site,

I wouldn't recommend as a Family site.

The toilets/shower blocks were in much need of an upgrade.

Would Not go back

On arrival we where able to select our own pitch, all of which are very small and many did not have enough room for caravan, awning and car.

Elderly male member of staff came for site fees and gave some information.

Facilities are of the worst seen and for this reason alone we would not return back.

We had a static caravan on this site few years ago, however clearly Mr Wallace and his family have failed to put any effort or money into the touring side of the park, which is a pity as there are not many touring sites in the area and this could clearly become a bigger advantage to all if only some effort was returned.

At 26 a night with awning this is clearly unacceptable.

Reviewer: 1875steve 1 review from this member

Me and my family absolutely love this place.

My granny owned a static on this site for 30 years, right up until she sadly died a few years back.

Anyway.

Id recommend this site to anyone.

The only down side is the pitches are very tightly put together and are on some pretty steep hills at some points, and there isn't room for putting an awning up.

The toilet facilities are nice and clean and pretty modern, and the showers are nice and hot.

The pitches all have elctric hook-up, but I suppose they could do with a few more water points as well.

The views from the pitches out to the firth of Forth and over to Edinburgh are just stunning.

As for facilities, there is an excellent on site complex that's just been built for M's, with a good sized pool, and an excellent bar / restaurant and nightlife. When we were there last, Phil Taylor and James Wade, amongst others, were playing in a darts exhibition, and there is also a lot of local comedians and singers on as well.

The on site shop can be a bit sparse, especially if you like your morning papers, get up there early!

There is a nice play park for the kids as well.

As for things close by, at the top of the site ( a big climb, it's huge) there is Kinghorn golf course (which has stunning views right along the fife coastline), which is also good for walking the dog.

You also have Kinghorn Loch for fishing, boating etc a couple of miles along the road.

You have the stunning Pettycur Bay Beach withing 5 mins walk of your pitch.

You also have the lovely little town of Kinghorn (exit site and turn left) about 1 mile away, which also has a stunning beach, as well as the usual pubs, take aways and supermarkets.

If you exit the site and turn right, about 2 miles down the coast is Burntisland.

If you go to Burntisland in the height of summer, its a busy place with loads to do, the funfair fills the huge local park, they also have an excellent beach, local pool, amusement arcades, trampolines, crazy Golf, bouncy castles etc etc.

All in all the whole surronding area makes going to this site well worth your while.

Also a special mention to the warden, an older man, who's name I missed, but a lovely and very helpful bloke.
