This is my second year camping for the Blair Castle Horse Trials.

Both times I have been over in the rally park (across the castle drive) and find the tent pitches flat, huge and very quiet. You are allocated a set pitch number on arrival.

Reception staff were friendly and welcoming and give you all the information you could need. You have access to free wifi in reception which was great for a quick check of e-mails ect.

Numerous toilet blocks - and despite the site being extremely busy with the horse trials - I never had an issue getting a shower. Blocks were always clean.

From the rally park - you do need a torch in the dark!

Fantastic walks direct from the site - a variety of way marked walks of varying lengths to follow - fantastic for the dog. Next year - will try and explore a bit more of Glen Tilt.

I do enjoy staying at this site and will continue to return to come up for the horse trials but I do find this site to rather on the expensive side especially as they do not accommodate single supplements so effectively I pay for 2 adults despite there only being me and the dog. I think they could offer a price for solo campers which would make it more cost effective.

Over-all a busy and popular site with nice facilities and I will return year after year even if it is on the pricey side.

Camped here many times. This visit was not great. Pitches were mud, no grass. Came home and had to wash the tent!

Getting too expensive for one person. I was 42. 00 for 2 nights. NO SINGLE PERSON SUPPLEMENT! That's for a Grass (mud) pitch with NO electricity!

Showers were annoying! Had to keep pushing a button every 10 seconds. Many shaver points not working! Really nice shower blocks, best I've seen!

Beautiful surroundings, nice welcome and friendly staff!

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.
