We have local ties with this site and always enjoy returning what ever the weather, wardens friendly as ever and always have time to blether with you.

The site will feel a little compact to some tourers with cars and awnings however it is idea for our needs.

A few more local shops have appeared since our last visit and the post office has moved.

Always a beautiful walk up through the village and up to the falls of Dochart, lots of walks and cycle tracks along the glens and loch side.

Local cycle and Kayak hire from the village, the local building work seems to have finished from across the road at the far end of the site.

TV coax connections on some EHU towers at the far end of the site. We are looking forward to our next visit.

This was our second outing in our caravan and was our first time at a caravan club site and everything was perfect.

We arrived late and warden came and met us to let us on to our pitch which was appreciated.

The campsite is beautifully maintained with excellent facilities.

We went for a few walks along the old railway in both directions which was interesting and flat. Had to go and find out why the railway went all the Loch Tay and it turns out there were steamboats on the loch back in the day.

There is lots to do in Killin and a couple of pubs even had live music in April which only shows how popular Killin is.

The EE phone signal was patchy 3g and strong 2g but there was wifi throughout the site so internet wasn't a problem.

Will we be be back? definitely :-)

If you like friendly wardens, good size pitches, nice location then go to Maragowan.

I have spent 3 nights here over the Easter weekend. The site was busy but given the size it didn't seem crowded. My wife had to wait for a free shower one morning, I never had a problem. Maybe men are quicker or don't bother the same as ladies.

Pitches are a good size with room for car, awning and caravan on a hard standing pitch. Pitches are standard with EHU but no individual drain or water point. TV signal was good.

Site is on the banks of a river with no fence or protection for children.

Killin has a number of bars, hotels, restaurants for food. Lunch at Capercaillie was Cullin Skink which was good. We ate out of the fish and chip van located in the village hall car park. It is not open for long, but everything was cooked fresh to order, so is worth a visit.

This is the second time we have been to Maragowan and wont be the last.

First visit to this site and we were impressed with the standard. Beautifully kept site and the toilet block although not of recent vintage was very clean and fresh. Very helpful wardens and supplied a cylinder of gas on trust in the evening when we ran out.

Lovely walks in near vicinity and around the area. Bus circuit (free to Scottish Bus Pass holders) passes the door and will stop on request. (seasonal)

Delightful village with facilities within medium walking distance and also via adjacent railway line walkway.

Trossachs area with wonderful scenery and loads of nearby places to visit.

We had a great long weekend at this site. It is on the edge of Killin which is a very pretty village with a Co-op, a good outdoor shop and many places to eat and drink.

The site is level and in a fabulous setting with Ben Lawers in the background. The toilet block was very clean and tidy and there is a small play park for kids. We cycled to Kenmore along NCN 7, (c 16 miles) which follows the south of Loch Tay, on a fabulous quiet and scenic road. We came back along the north side of the loch which was a bit busier but not too bad.

This site is all about the area and the scenery. Killin is just a village really, nothing special about it although the Falls of Dochart Inn does excellent home-cooked food. If you were being unkind you could describe it as the a***-end of nowhere, but it is a great base for walking, canoeing, cycling and generally enjoying the natural beauty.

It's a very dark site at night and you need a torch to visit the loos - which are a bit of a trek away if you're pitched at the far end. Speaking of the loos, although spotlessly clean they are a bit gloomy and in need of brightening up a bit.

The site is sandwiched between a river and a busy-ish road, also some building work going on next to the road and the pitches adjacent could be quite noisy at times. The riverside pitches are definitely the best. No on-site dog walk but the wardens can suggest a nice walk right next to the site where dogs can be let off the lead safely.

It's a completely flat site and not difficult to manoeuvre your van to get pitched up, therefore good for the less physically able caravanner.

If you're prepared to get out and about and make the most of the area, this is a good place to say.
