We are just back from a 3 night stay at this site and we enjoyed it as there is lots to do nearby and in Perth. We phoned the day before to see if they had a pitch for our folding camper over the weekend and they were happy to accommodate us.
We arrived just after 1pm but no-one was about, but about 10 minutes later, after ringing at the house as instructed by the signs but no answer, the owner/warden showed up.
We also didn't see anyone when we left so we just left the security card (used for the car barriers and the toilets - we only got 1 which was a bit annoying if me and my husband both needed the toilet at the same time!) it would have been good to see someone before we left or a handy card return box but not a big issue.
They weren't very busy, mainly seasonal caravans and statics and we were put in the bottom of the site away from the statics. It meant that the toilet block was up the hill (stairs close by though!) and the mens was further away still. We didn't find it a problem though.
The toilets were adequate, slightly dated but clean. Half the toilets, showers and wash cubicles were locked, saved cleaning I guess! so there was 2 toilets, 1 shower and 1 wash cubicle (with washbasin) open. They had a wee step for the little ones to reach the sinks which was handy! also had a hairdryer. No charge to use the showers and plenty hot water although it was a push button shower.
They had lots of recycling bins around the site. The playground was a bit too grown up (not very 'small child' friendly!) for our 2 small children, and it was in a dark, damp part of the woods just next to our pitch. Would be good to have the ground cleared and maybe updated, but they still enjoyed it! there is a village walk from the site to Comrie, it doesn't take long but the buggy wouldn't fit through the kissing gate so we had to go by road on the way back.
Comrie is a lovely little village, has lots of little deli/cafes and a lovely fish and chip shop on the corner! beware, its shut on Monday nights!
Overall we had a nice stay here and will go back but not very child friendly in term of play area!
We stayed here for a long weekend and there's plenty left to do on other visits. We phoned to book just in case, and were glad: the barrier at the gate was down at 7 pm, and you'd have to be bold to ring the buzzer to gain entry without a booking. The Site Full sign was up but many of the pitches are let to seasonal caravans and most of these were unoccupied.
Good value for money, we thought. We were taken to our pitch, and everything was pointed out: very helpful owner. Each pitch is hard standing, and they're terraced in groups into what was once a well wooded hillside (birch, oak and Scots pine). The wooded knoll between the site and the main road is good at screening sight and sound of traffic, which does stop in the evening.
You get one key fob to operate the entrance barriers (needed for the security of the stored caravans?) and for the toilets (we had to co-ordinate our visits). Ladies toilet block is up a flight of very uneven steps, is spotlessly clean and freshly painted in jolly colours. Husband didn't comment on the Gents, which are on another part of the site.
The showers are hot and free, and the hairdryer is free too (unusually). There's a motorhome service point (drain, stand pipe, but no hose) well away from the CDP - it would have been more convenient to have them sited together, but that's a minor point. Bins emptied daily, much rubbish is recycled.
There is a small fenced Dog Walk. Our Spaniel enjoyed a walk in the extensive woods up behind the site, though there are deer in there so she got a couple of ticks.
Pleasant walk to Comrie through the woods, then a bit more dodgy on the busy road. The town merits half a day, don't miss the Cancer Charity shop - best of its kind, with a real buzz. There are other surprising shops - the veggie shop does its own fresh orange juice, there's a tartan weaver and a specialist baker and the De'il's Cauldron (waterfall) is absolutely amazing but take care with children or dogs.
My husband and I stayed at this campsite for two nights in our caravan. The site was quite empty and we were shown to a lovely pitch which was more than adequate for our purposes, in fact a much larger tourer could have pitched there and would have had ample space for an awning and also table and chairs. My only advice is that one use steel pegs for your awning as the hard standing is exactly that - two inches of gravel and the rest underneath, concrete.
The manager is into recycling, with chutes for plastic, cans, paper and household rubbish. It only takes a couple of minutes and is no problem.
We had read about the toilets being old fashioned, but no-one had mentioned that you forgot this as soon as you opened the door. All the cubicles were painted a different colour, and I must admit it made me think of warm sunny days, even though the weather was the wettest week in September.
Comrie is in itself a lovely village with friendly people, a good selection of shops and as others have written before, a great chippie.
We do hope to visit this site again, I liked the peace and tranquillity amongst the trees without being overcrowded by them.
Well worth a visit is you like the same as my husband and I do.
