Stayed here in our 8 man tent.

The site was easy to find & there's no road noise as there's no main roads nearby.

Got a pitch next to friends by prior arrangement. Friendly reception greeting. Quite a large site, so wee map given to find our numbered pitch. Tent area is separate from tourers. Electric hookup posts were close & had a water tap too. We were right next to our neighbours, who were our friends so it didn't matter but maybe our tent was too big for the pitch?

The playpark was great for my girls, age 8 & 6, park is next to tent area & is well used. There's also a wee portacabin with table football, & fruit machines, which we never used.

We used the pool once, although 'heated' it was vaguely warm. The kids didn't mind though, bbbrrr.

The toilet block next to tent area was clean but dated with push button showers, the water was hot & plentiful though. The newer block is amidst the tourer area & was newer but similar. The dishwashing facilities are here too, so a bit of a walk with your dirty dishes.

We used the diner/cafe place once for lunch & it was ok & fairly priced.

Around the site Is great for scooters/bikes for the kids.

Overall a good site for a couple of nights. We were just wanting somewhere close to home to practise with our big tent. I think that tents/campers were an after thought here though.

We were met on arrival by a charming lady at reception who was extremely helpful & booked us in quickly & efficiently. Our pitch was a corner pitch which was very flat & easy to erect the tent on. Our EHU was easily accessible with the added bonus of a water tap on. Every so often there was a refuse bin which made things a lot easier. These were emptied nearly every day.

The toilet blocks were very clean & tidy with all the amenities necessary for a comfortable stay. The showers were always hot & I for 1 did not mind paying 20p for 4 mins.

All the staff were very friendly & extremely helpful especially the bar/restaurant manager. The bar/restaurant area was always clean & very reasonably priced. They did not feel the need to extort money from you as you were a captive audience. The small pool was an added bonus & helped us amuse the kids a couple of times, as did the putting green.

The surrounding area is abundant with things to do;Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument, Blair Drummond Safari Park etc. The beauty of the area is superb & not to be missed.

All in all, this site offers everything you could wish for & more, Highly recommended!

Spent a very pleasant week from Monday 23rd June to Monday 30th June at Balgair Castle Holiday Park staying in a rental caravan, toilet blocks were kept extremely clean, play area was kitted out with swings & climbing equipment.

The bistro bar is very good value for money, all the staff were friendly & helpful

The site is well placed to vist Stirling, Loch Lomond & Falkirk.

The directions given take you over the Fintry hills which is very beautiful but not the easiest route for a caravan. It is more suitable if you continue on the road through Lennoxtown and then turn right and go around the hills. This site was fantastic a really warm welcome and a choice of pitches when we arrived as the Scottish schools had just returned. A small shop on site but you need to have milk with you as it is a half hour drive to nearest shops. The site was clean and very well maintained with breathtaking views. The bistro and other facilities are great the staff were brilliant and very helpful. The swimming pool is clean and heated. The site was very quiet during the week but filled up with people at the weekend and became less appealing to us. Lots of families with young children who didn't respect the site. One family let their two young children pull branches off a young tree and didn't like me asking them to stop. The site staff work hard to make this a brilliant place to stay and do their best to discourage poor behaviour but sometimes it is up to the users. The toilet and shower block were really clean and well maintained. A great base to visit places like the Falkirk Wheel and Lake Katrine and Blair Drummond Safari Park. We stayed for a week and ran out of time to do everything. A few minutes down the road is the Courtyard Cafe which was stunning. A working farm and dairy making their own ice cream combined with a beautiful interior design studio. We would have loved to stay longer and would definitely return or try one of the other sites in this group. Thank you to the staff who made this a lovely holiday.

Just back from a trip to Balgair Castle to meet up with some UKCS friends.

It is an excellent site at the foot of the Campsie Hills and the views from the site are stunning.

The site is well run by helpful staff and is kept immaculately clean. There is a fenced off dog exercise area, a large fenced off children's play area, a small heated outdoor pool and a bar serving meals to eat in or take away.

There was always plenty of hot water available.

Limited provisions are available at the sports centre in Fintry about a mile away, but the nearest shops and cash machines are about 6 miles away at either Balfron or Kippen. The site really could do with a small shop selling milk, bread and other essentials.

The ground was rather stony in the area where we pitched, so make sure that you have some rock pegs.

Most of the roads leading to Fintry are very narrow, some single track with passing places and potholes, so use a map to get there, not a satnav or you are liable to have a difficult drive.

The site is only about 15 miles from Stirling and Blair Drummond Safari Park, and also fairly close to both Glasgow and Loch Lomond so there is plenty to see in the area.

As new caravanners, this was our third trip since picking up our new van at the beginning of April.

We were met at the site by 2 girls who were very friendly and welcoming. The site is well laid out and the scenery is amazing. It is really private and peaceful.

The toilet block is really clean and modern with plenty hot water and nice music.

This site is a hidden gem and we will go back later this year.
