Selected this site after driving past on a previous visit to the area.

Telephone booking for two nights. After the initial booking in and the receiving of the obligatory list of rules we were brusquely directed to our pitch. Sadly that was the start of the decline. The spacing between units is minimal giving the feeling of being somewhat cramped. To hear your neighbour snoring is not a good start! Toilet and shower facilities adequate. Push button showers that my husband advised only lasted approx 10 seconds at best. Only one chemical toilet disposal point which is located at the far end of the park in the next section - quite a distance to carry a full toilet cassette. Whilst dogs are accepted on this site they appear not to be entirely welcomed. There are two official on site dog walking areas. Alarmingly and unknowingly, the one we used is an unfenced, multi levelled area of rough ground that opens straight onto the Logierait road! When I checked we had the correct dog walking area the staff confirmed its position and are fully aware of this safety issue! Dog owners be aware of this potentially fatal problem, especially those who's dogs are exercised on extending leashes.

The positives to this site is its location and its beautifully manicured grass in an otherwise characterless site.

Spent a few days on this site while touring Scotland.

Location

A ten minute walk from the lovely town of Pitlochry. It's definitely worth a visit - great pubs and a great atmosphere. The surrounding countryside is stunning and a good base for Loch Tay and Rannoch.

Facilities

Generally well maintained, though quite dated. Well stocked shop on site.

Price

Around £23 per night for two people with electricity.

Great site!

This is a very well maintained site which is very convenient for Pitlochry. Of all the sites we stayed in on our trip to Scotland, this was the only one to allocate us a pitch. This is quite useful when you are in a motorhome as you not worried about losing it if you go out. Although the town centre is fairly close it rained for most of the arrival day and we were able to drive into town without worry. A nice touch is free wifi, charged for at most other sites. As somebody else mentioned, the serried rows of statics are a bit soulless. Maybe some variety in colour or appearance might improve the look of the site. Within walking distance are the Bells distillery and the hydro-electric dam, both worth a visit. The washing facilities were very clean and well appointed. There was a small shop selling the basics although better shopping in the town was not far away.

Stayed here twice - one night on the way up to Orkney and two nights on the way back, and will certainly use it again.

The staff are friendly, there is a good shop if you need it (lovely fresh rolls !), as other people have said, the toilets are sparkly clean and there are very good showers or baths if you want them.

On the way back, the first night it rained. And rained. And rained. And rained. And all the next morning, so we were very grateful for the free wifi so we could get some work done while waiting for it to pass. We then wandered up to the dam, which was amazing !

We went into town - Pitlochry is quite a tourist trap but is delightful - it has a permanent Christmas shop, with some lovely bits and pieces, some excellent places for coffee and we like the Westlands Hotel, where we used to stay in pre-motorhome days. We went there for an evening meal and it was really nice, friendly and good food.

There is lots to do in the area - we can recommend the Erdradour distillery and next time we go we plan to visit Blair Atholl.

The site is also very well placed for visiting the Pitlochry theatre.

The only downside I could see is that there really doesn't seem to be much for children to do - but for a site for adults it's great !

Just 1/4 mile out of Pitlochry town a big site, well set out in 3 areas. The best pitching is on the main two fields but these are only for those using awnings. Staff are efficient with quick check in - note they don't take cards - cash only.

The other area is around the edge of the statics. Smaller pitches but quiet and near to the showe / bath cubicles. The only gripe here is the chem toilet is nearby - not a problem itself, more that there is a constant stream of cars from the other pitching areas driving down to empty their toilets. Car after car first thing, and its really not that far to walk.

There is a big toilet / shower block on the main areas. Very clean, good hot water, hairdryers and the only minus is 30 second push buttons on the showers. The smaller block by that statics is individual bathrooms with baths or showers. Heaters, hairdryers and kept immaculately. Good shop on site open 9am to 9pm and has a good range.

Town is very pretty, outdoor shops, gift shops and plenty of eateries. The Heather Jewellery workshop is really worth a visit.

We paid £21 per night on the non awning pitches. A really good site that's well kept and handy for town. Would recommend a visit here.

We have just spent 3 nights on this site. The situation is great, on the edge of the town, so an easy walk in, with great views of the surrounding countryside. However I found the pitches all a bit cramped.

The toilet block was spotless, plenty of hot water and free hairdryers. There was a good sized shop which was open for long hours. There is no children’s play area which seems a bit odd on a site of this size.

It felt a bit soul less, perhaps because of the huge field of identical, bleak statics.
