We received a lovely warm welcome on arrival, the pitches are hardstanding with plenty of room. The showers and toilets were spotless, Brilliant on site dog walk, The site is well maintained by Fran and Jen, they are very passionate about the area they live in and always have time to advise you of walks or where to have a day out. We had some lovely walks some from the campsite and some we parked by Loch Trool. Thank you for Making us feel so welcome and hope to visit again soon

Wow! what a superb find. Quiet, remote, relaxed, clean facilities, lovely owners, saw golden Eagle over Merrick, Osprey and chick (through telescope)at Loch Trool amazing! Long scenic walks in and around Glentrool forest, and as the owners say arrived a GOA (grumpy on arrival) and left a COD (chilled on departure)! will definitely be back but not in June! too many midges lol!

What a beautifully kept site! Fran and Jen both do their utmost to give you a warm welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The pitches are all flat and big for motorhomes/caravans and there is a lovely grass area for the tents. A dog walk area, complete with dog bin (which I was disappointed that some campers did not use!) and a beautiful pond. Spotlessly clean toilets and showers, dog wash, washing machine and drier, clothes line and pot wash - all kept in pristine condition. Nearby hotel/pub 8 minutes walk up the road one way and stunning Glen Trool Loch about 1 and half miles to the visitor centre, the other way. Free wifi too! My one and only gripe - nothing to do with the campsite and out of the owners control is the dog owners of fellow campers. Why do people insist on not putting their dogs on leads? Why oh why do they not pick up after their animals? I have three dogs of my own and manage that quite easily. This is not the only site it happens on and if everyone is not careful, dogs will be banned from campsites full stop and camping with our furry friends will be a thing of the past! That aside, you couldn't wish for more pleasant owners, they have a great sense of humour and I would stay there again in a trice! Excellent

Another wonderful site, what a difference it makes to not allow cars next to tents! No slamming doors or alarms going off etc. This site is run by 2 lovely ladies who understand what it is like and what you need to camp. They have a wealth of knowledge and are very happy to provide advice on walking, cycling, eating and wildlife; they obviously love the area and it shows. The site is well laid out and a lot of effort has been put into this site to make it work so well. The bothy, picnic benches & washing lines are a welcome facility. The shower & toilets blocks were spotless and the shop was well stocked. The pub a 2 minute walk downhill (you will need a torch) serves great food & beer, it takes a bit longer to walk back though! We are definitely going to return to this campsite.

Glentrool is simply amazing. Superb facilities on spacious pitches - as good as any Caravan Club - but set in remote, peaceful surroundings surrounded by great natural beauty and forest adventure. Dark sky means just that - it is amazing! And wi-fi faster than I can get at home too.

The care taken by the owners was of the highest order - and the on-site facilities cannot be faulted ( not by me anyway - and I am fussy).

Go - relax - enjoy - and support a site owner who really cares. Great pub just down the road too. Ask about the hanger steaks !

Our second visit to Glentrool as a stopover while walking the Southern Upland Way again. Last year we thought the campsite couldn't be bettered but the wonderful, friendly ladies who own and run it have proved us wrong. The thought and obvious sheer hard work that has gone into the site is outstanding and they have managed to further transform the site in just 12 months. For the walker carrying all their gear the sight of lovely showers and a laundry is a wonderful thing but when the Bothy is discovered it gets very hard to leave the next morning. In the inclement British weather a lovely, dry bothy with a kettle and microwave is heaven for a tent dweller, particularly in a one-man hiking tent! The site is in a fantastic location with a very good bistro pub 5 minutes walk down the road. Reception has a good shop with all the basics and a selection of microwavable meals which can be heated in the Bothy. I'm itching to bring our campervan up to Glentrool to show my wife how lovely the countryside is and just how good a campsite can be. I can only thank the two lovely lassies who made us so welcome and hope to visit again soon.
