What a find! Beautiful views to mountains. Very helpful staff, even dragged caravan onto pitch for us. Fully serviced pitches so no lugging water carriers and waste water to and from caravan. TV hookup next to van so reception was excellent. Not too far from Aberfoyle, lovely little village with excellent fish & chips etc. And then there's the Trossachs just up from Aberfoyle. Excellent for picnics and unbelievable views. Word of warning-if using the washing machines, clothes don't seem to spin very well resulting in costly tumble drying. Showers bit on the small side but always immaculate. Will visit again no doubt.
Spent last weekend on this site. Site is aplit between statics, lodges and touring sites, tiered and exceptionally well kept and organised. Our pitch had water, waste, electricity and a TV point, with paved drive and a gravel pitch to the side for awnings or tables. The pithces are well marked, with space for an additional car, or for caravanners to park theirs. Real eclectic mix of visitors, lots of Dutch and Belgian visitors. The welcome was perfunctory and efficient but not hugely warm or welcoming, but it was a busy Friday. Shown to my pitch and guided on, and the site seem to help push caravans in front first, being relatively tight to manouvere. Good motorhome cafilities (drainage, water, gas available). We had a bit of noise from next door until 2am despite dire warnings of no noise after 10:30, so not really imposed. The toilets were clean, but there seemed to be two showers for what must be over 100 units, alhtough there was no queue when I used them. Shop stocked the basics and some camping kit. Nice coffee shop with free internet a bonus, the wifi on site was patchy, £5 for 24 hours. Heavy on midges at this time of year. Not really the site for me, but that's an preference rather than a judgement. Be great for families.
We stayed in one on the static caravans described as a Sheiling. It was actually only on arrival that we found out that this was the most basic of caravans designed for hillwalkers etc staying a night at a time. However the van was new and very clean.
The accommodation was perfectly fine for us. There was no cooker, but there was a hob, which was OK for us that weekend. The one let down was that there were no glasses or tumblers. I assumed they were just missing and my partner went to reception to ask for some. He was told that the Sheiling is a basic caravan and tumblers are not provided. I thought this very odd. I would have thought most people staying for any length of time will require a cold drink at some point. We were given a couple of disposable cups but I didn't find that very satisfactory.
Apart from this we had a nice weekend. The site is a short drive to Aberfoyle and the Trossachs. The area surrounding the site is nice and the bluebell woods nice for a walk. There seems to be a good mix of camping, tourers and statics.
This is the second time we've been, first time was in a tourer.
Shower facilities are clean and sufficient. Staff are helpful (apart from the cups).
Just need to sort out our Scottish weather. Sleet and freezing in May!
Great little site in a nice scenic and quiet location, weekend we stayed it rained most of the weekend but the pitch stayed dry enough and we did not flood.
Only 2 showers for both men and women but were always clean and never had to queue for them.
Shop had all the essentials and was well priced. Games room/lounge area was a nice extra but could maybe have done with updating, owners were very helpful and even drove us down to our pitch and told us what was in the area and wished us a nice stay etc.
Pub close by (think it was called the Black Bull?) was a great little pub with a pool table and dart board in a room at the back.
Our first time camping and testing our stuff. Firstly I phoned ahead to book this as it was Easter weekend, we were told we were lucky as they were busy. At a cost of £49.50 for two nights, with electrics and water we thought it was expensive, but what do we know. Any way took us 2 hours to erect our Mojave 5 tent. Lol.
As for the camp site staff were friendly, toilets were immaculate, lots of hot water, small play area for children, and small shop with basics. The tent area was far from busy!
All in all camp site for us was so so, but that's our first time.
