Nice big site with plenty of room around each pitch. Site was very busy the weekend we were there, especially with big groups of families camping, but there was no noise after 11pm as wardens patrol regularly. Great base for visiting Pitlochry and surrounding areas. We had a lovely afternoon at Blair Castle which we got a 25% discount for staying at the campsite. My only criticism would be that although there are 5 toilet blocks, the one where we were situated only had 2 showers in it. For the volume of people using that block, that is nowhere enough. I would advise getting up early in the morning or late at night to use the shower. Great chip shop across the road from the site and convenience store a couple of minutes walk from the site

Excellent campsite in an excellent location. Now our third year visiting and plan many future visits. Very friendly staff, with small shop and games room on site. Children's play park in the centre of the park alongside a putting green. Toilet blocks are very good with warm showers and the location next to Blair Castle is fabulous, particularly last weekend in May for the Highland Games. Glen Tilt is right next to the park and great for walks. Shop, cafe and pub all within five minute walk. Pitches are very big and suitable for even 10 man tents.

A huge site in a lovely location but sadly its growth over the years has turned it into the caravan site equivalent of a hyper market - stack em high! Plush reception, toilet blocks located throughout, plenty of water points, 90 minutes free wifi a day and an enormous play/ recreation area in the middle. But the pitches are arranged in regimented rows that feel more like being in a storage area than a place for a holiday. The toilet blocks were designed with functionality in mind. Expensive - £4 a night for an awning??

It might be what some people are looking for but we would swap the functionality for a bit of soul - just not our cup of tea really.

One plus point was that it was a five minute walk to the Loft restaurant which was excellent.

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.
