Lovely site very well kept. Wardens & staff very helpful.

Only 2 showers in toilet block which we thought might be a problem for such a big site (there are 5 toilet blocks but also nearly 300 touring pitches + tents)Pleasantly surprised that showers were free every morning even though site was busy however never once had a hot or even warm shower. Very disappointing.

Terrible Tent Pitch Position

Pitch booked in plenty of time / requested quiet spot - got opposite - stayed there last week [have stayed there a total of 4 times now over the years].

Whatever you do don't accept tent pitch no 247 [although this is classed as an XXL pitch with the foot traffic down all sides it became a very small pitch], it is in our opinion in the worst position on the site adjacent to a gate to the river with people walking / cyclists down every side including the rear of the tent [privacy was not possible]. The power supply is at the far / wrong side of the gate away from the tent pitch which either means people trip over / trample your power lead, or as I did lift a paving flag at the gate to run my cable beneath for safety, I reported and made a suitable suggestion to one of the grounds men about this but nothing was done during our stay].

Cold water only out of the automatic taps in one of the toilet blocks.

Children cycling between parked cars [even in the allocated parking spots] - many resorted to parking cars in front of their tents, even this caused worry, as they cycled even there.

Overall these and other minus points [not really worth mentioning] somewhat spoilt our weeks holiday, We would never go there again in the Scottish School holidays which we did not know [and was not told about on booking] start earlier and finish earlier than England's, or have that position again.

Just back from a great 4 days here, which we thorougly enjoyed. Great walks and cycling on around 5 or 6 marked routes (we did the red and black routes, and plenty to do despite some mixed weather. I managed 9 holes of golf at Blair Atholl ( nice wee course, just about walking distance and our oldest daughter did a 2hr trek from the Blair Castle stables.

Only negative was the showers as per previous poster mentioned. Just about enough water coming through if you were the only one in the showers, but dropped to a trickle if 2 were running. Could also do with a seat - this was shower block 2.

We ate twice at the Bridge of Tilt Hotel which was excellent and great value - 2 steaks and a bottle of wine for 25 offer is hard to beat - not sure how long it will last - think new owners took over at the end of last year.

Visited here in mid November. This was our first visit to the site. Obviously due to the time of year it was very quiet. The reception was very welcoming and friendly. Our pitch was the perfect pitch as it was fully serviced, near to the toilets and with a great view.

The dog walks nearby are really good as is the short walk to the atholl arms hotel. The bothy bar at the hotel is very good for a bar supper or a nice drink next to the fire. We eat here twice with our dogs and can't wait to go back.

The only criticism we had was that the showers didn't seem to have much hot water ( this may be due to the -2c temp outside and the fact the site was quiet so they didn't heat that much water )

Despite this we loved it here and would suggest it to anyone to try.

We loved it so much we paid to leave our caravan here for the week so we can go back up on Friday coming.

Stayed here for 2 nights this week. 27 per night for hook-up, 2 adults, 2 kids and motorhome. A little steep.

Very big site and pitches big too. Toilets very clean and very warm. However, the sinks had a mixer tap only so could not get very hot water for a shave. Also the sinks were tiny so made it hard not to get soaking wet.

Reception area has pool table, table tennis table and a little shop. Closes at about 6pm though (I think).

Blair Castle an excellent place to go to for the day. You get 20% discount too !

Atholl Arms is superb. Great beer and superb food. One of the kids had venison olives, one had game Madras (rabbit, pheasant and veal), I had a steak and she who must be obeyed had a veggie dish. Lashings of soft drinks and quite a few beers too. Was only 55 so good value.

This site is very open with lots of green spaces and the facilities are second to none. We were there at a very quiet time and I would imagine the site when full would be very different. The pitches are very close together but spaced so that all have a good view. Some pitches on the area near the river had bigger pitches and were not quite as close as the ones in the middle.

Blair Athol castle is very near and a short walk through woodland. Not to be missed. Walks can be taken in every direction.
