Stayed one night as a stopover, have mixed opinions. Liked the views across to the other side of the valley, but not the views over the other 200+ pitches. Liked the dog walk up Glen Tilt through the woods, but not the deeply rutted muddy grass access to the upper rows of pitches - it needs hardcore, it can't cope with the traffic. Blair Castle next door is always worth a visit, but the site's free wi-fi did not reach our part of the site. Liked that there were lots of toilet blocks, but not that our neighbours let their dog run free; a dog (not necessarily theirs, I stress) had fouled the site nearby, the corners farthest from the smart resort-like check-in don't seem to be well monitored. 26 for hardstand, EHU, 2 adults & dog (she cost 2!). We'd stay again, but only as a stopover - it's not a favourite site of ours on balance.

Biggest impressions: Space, peace, beauty.

We were here the first week in September and chose a large pitch and were not disappointed - plenty of flat lush green space for tent and car alongside. All tent areas had water and washing facilities within a short distance. Bathroom facilities were good (all cubicles with basin and toilet - 2 also had showers) and there were several blocks around the site. However, the weather was a bit cold, and while the water was always hot the building was barely heated - perhaps I'm not tough enough or green enough, but considering the price we paid (not low) I felt there could have been a bit more comfort in that way. Washing up facilities were a bit basic but sufficient. Free wi-fi worked well - although it was not possible to stream.

The centre of the park was given over to game space - fantastic - enough space for 4 - 5 simultaneous full size football games I should think, without troubling the rest of the site. We saw one family rounders game but not much else, except kite flying.

The site is close to some lovely bits of landscape for walking (4 Munros close by) and biking. There's lots to do - we had free access to the impressive Blair Atholl Castle but didn't manage to make use of it. Shopping in Pitlochry was the best but there were a couple of local shops with all the basics and newspapers.

A great spot for exploring a lovely area. The facilities are excellent. My only problem with this site is the regimented approach to camping. We booked in advance which was good as it was busy. When we arrived we were told where our spot was which is fine. I have never before been told which way the tent should face. Looking around the whole site is like a town with 'streets'of tents and caravans. There is a bizarre one way system for cars which doesn't actually work if you follow the signs. Can't decide if I would go there again.

Lovely highland cows at the entrance.

Driving round the area however we notice that other sites crammed even more tents and caravans in.

We arrived here late in the day on the off chance they had a pitch available. The system for late arrivals is very good - there is a holder at the door of reception showing what pitches are available that night. Different size pitches are available depending on the size of your unit and they are priced accordingly. This was one of the most expensive sites we have ever stayed on (I suppose it is a 5 star site).

The surroundings of the park are lovely (the website does not do it justice) and we would have liked to be able to choose a different pitch to the one we were on (there were other vacant pitches), but we followed the rules and pitched on one shown as available according to the instructions left at the reception door.

We didn't take advantage of any of the other site facilities as we were only there one night. The shower block nearest us seemed a bit dated for a 5 star site but were clean and the showers were ok. We would stay there again despite the price if we were ever in the area.

Shopping at the nearby House of Bruar complex is an experience!

We are just back from a 2 night stay at Blair Castle. This is a much bigger site than we would normally go to but the surrounding area is fantastic for exploring and walking.

The site did have a nice atmosphere with everyone enjoying their holidays

We took the train to Pitlochry and back just for something different.

We have EE phones and got good 3g on site.

However all is not well with this site the touring fees are horrendous compared to other sites we have stayed at. Another slight issue we had was the length of the time the shower stayed on for I counted 15 sec between button presses and is not near long enough.

All in all at 52 for 2 nights on a touring pitch I don't know if we'll be back.

Great Caravan Site.

We had a fully serviced pitch with plenty of room for a large awning & car.

Play area is nice & clean & my children loved the football pitch.

Good wifi in reception, also nice games room.

Got a 2 reduction into Blair Castle which the kids & myself visited.

Laundrette was nice & big, but found paying 3 for a half hour cycle that didn't clean my clothes was a bit disappointing also shuts at 5pm which I find is a little early.

Showers are far to HOT my children could not wash, I also had difficulty standing under what felt like burning hot lava. ( THIS NEEDS MAJOR ATTENTION ) before someone gets burnt.
