We have just arrived home after spending a couple of days at this site and it was fantastic. My husband and I was there with our 5 children and had a great time, apart from the weather which rained the whole time we were there. The site has 2 great parks 4 the kids and plenty of space for them to play on their bikes. Also this is 1 of the cleanest and quietest sites we have been on so if you are looking for lively evenings it's not for you. The only downfall about this site is the shop its not very well stocked. We will be back also recommended it to family.

Great Site with great views and lots to do for all the family.

Lots to do off site too in the local area. We had a 4 night stay here with one very wet night, but the tent performed as it should, unlike others nearby.

I have only one gripe and that is the toilets are small for the size of the site, if you wake up late you could find yourself in a queue for the loo or a shower, 3 loo's and 3 showers each M/F. But apart from that it was a very well run site and we will return next year.

Nice spacious site by the Loch, great views, good facilities and friendly staff at a reasonable overnight fee. Nice and quiet in June and handy for the Galloway Forest Park for cycling, walking and red kite spotting. Has canoes and boats for hire on the Loch and lots of information in the main building

Negatives: midges and lack of range of food in the shop - could do with fresh rolls in the morning!

Just spent 2 nights here and really enjoyed it. Perfect place situated next to the loch. Seen a few Red Kites flying over us most of the day. Camp field is massive. A good play area for the kids and a mini football pitch. There was electric hookups there but not a lot so you will have to book in advance to get these. As you walk through the park there is a little shop which we were only in once but seemed to be well stocked.

Adjacent to the shop there is another park for the kids with loads there, including Swings, slide, table tennis, mini assault coarse type thing, going chess/droughts set. There is also bikes to hire and canoes to hire.

There is a large area for dog walking. They also don't mind you having fire pits.

When we arrived there was a guy with a van with speakers attached playing the guitar and singing. We pitched at the far end of the camp field and we could still here him. Good fun having live music.

The only gripe we had was in the camp field the toilet block was porta cabins which contained 3 toilets and 3 showers in each. They were cleaned once a day and kept to an excellent standard but, during the coarse of the day they started to block with kids running in and out. I think that would be worse if it was really busy. There is also other toilets next to the shop which were far better. Family shower cubicles and each shower cubicle had a toilet and a sink. We went in there a couple of times and they were spotless.

All in all I loved this site and am looking forward to going back. Its not far from us so its going to be our regular getaway place.

Just spent 2 nights at this wonderful site. We chose it because it was easily located both for my husband and me and also for relatives meeting us from Ireland. We were then all travelling together to Fort William.

Well what a good choice we made, we were greeted by the Owner who was very cheerful and helpful. The hard standing pitches were of a very good size and flat. The site is very well maintained and the toilet block was getting a paint job on the outside. The inside, however, took our breath away. The toilets were modern and spotlessly clean, the 3 shower cubicles contained a toilet, separate shower and a wash basin. Absolute bliss, complete privacy and no wet clothes.

There was also a laundry room and washing up area. This site also caters for tents and has a separate camping field with its own toilets and washing up area.

There are 2 play areas for children and you can hire boats and all the safety gear on site.

There is a bus stop right outside the gate and we popped into Castle Douglas and had a lovely time looking around the town and visiting one of the cafe's.

The site is close to the Red Kite trail and has some wonderful scenery. We would highly recommend this site and wished we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful views

Flat pitch

Lots of information on the area

Great play park for children.

Boats to hire for use on the loch.

Very child friendly, kids loved it!


Showers in ablution block beside tent field were difficult to use with a child and kept running cold.

There was another block past the shop which was better but self limiting shower was frustrating especially as children found them hard to operate.

Would prefer to pay and have a better shower.

Manager did suggest we could get the key to the disabled shower but we were on our way home.
