Stayed here overnight on the way to mull. Arrived early evening and was met by friendly owner who showed us to our pitch.

The site is located close to the shore of a gorgeous loch and the atmosphere of the site is friendly but efficient.

Toilet block immaculate.

A really genuine surprise was the on site restaurant.

We had a simply wonderful meal and I had one of the best steaks I have ever tasted !

Similarly friendly and laid back atmosphere. We will definitely return for a longer stay, a real gem of a campsite

On behalf of our group - 1 tent, 1 touring caravan and 1 booked into the lodge - we had a wonderful time, despite the rain on Saturday night and late Sunday. The kids got dirty but were happy playing around the site, which is well kept and in the most idyllic surroundings (Saturday night dinner outside, lone piper playing on top of a distant hill thrilled the kids & adults) We were all in different parts of the sites but that didn't stop us having a great time; if anything kept us fit!

The facilities for camping as in washing up, toilets etc. , were clean and well stocked; the lodge was warm, homely and welcoming.

The owners and staff were all friendly and great hosts. We enjoyed it so much we are booking in at end of May again.

Really nice campsite, child and dog friendly.

Good little playground with tire and normal swings, climbing frame, slide, sandpit etc. Very small burn between the farmhouse and the play area, I told the kids to stay away from it and they were fine.

Woodland walk with path down to the loch (Tay) and penned chickens which some children found interesting.

The owners are friendly and the restaurant on site has lovely food, but does get very busy so if you want to eat best to book. It is licensed and food is a bit pricey but worth it as very good.

There are two toilet blocks with two toilets and two showers in each. These were kept nice and clean and where adequate for site. Never had to queue. A lot of units on site had their own toilets, so toilet blocks only used by tents etc.

Killin is a good little village, plenty of places to eat, the capercaillie at the bottom of the village has a really good menus and is good value for money. There is a community run thrift shop in the old mill at the bottom of the village which is worth a visit too.

Nice peaceful site no noise encouraged after 10. 30pm, well run, we'll definitely be regulars here. Recommend for family's and dog owners.

This is a nice site in a great location but for the very first time, the review score we felt didn't reflect the site. However when I re read the reviews, I can see why, most were from campers in tents. This is one of the few sites left that still caters for tents with grass pitches and no hook ups (there are some available) and as tent user I can appreciate that and the reasonable prices. However not so great for caravans. Access is tricky if like us you have a twin axle as the reception is down a single track road, down a steep hill and no turning space. Fortunately for us our pitch was in the lower field and we stopped in time to be able to turn. If we hadn't( and there are only two hardstanding pitches in the lower field, the rest are at the top field), reversing would have been a nightmare for any caravan. The chemical waste point is just a toilet and there are no facilities to rinse it out.

There are only 2 toilets and two showers in the ladies and my husband informs me its the same in the gents in both toilet blocks. The top one is a bit quieter so at weekends and busy times expect to queue for both, We felt that for the size of the site they could have done with a lot more. There was a queue even at 7. 30am! The toilets we feel could have been cleaner(probably reflecting the volume of people using them) and not a patch on other 8/9 reviews. We didn't use the showers because they were full of grass and dirt. We couldn't get a radio or tv signal despite the freeview indicator saying we could but that might just have been where we were pitched. Not an issue for us.

Great fish and chip van in Killin and Reasonable sized co op(open till 10pm) and a launderette. Although there were facilities on site. Bank of Scotland and cash machine also in Killin. Lots of places to eat in Killin Would go back again(off peak) in my tent good grass pitches. Staff were very helpful and friendly. As has already been mentioned, shop never seemed to be open and restaurant only open from 6pm thurs/fri/sat. And for breakfast fri and sat. Bit pricey for us as we have 3 kids but was busy so probably a good idea to book. In all good value but for us in the caravan a 7/10. The toilets/showers let it down

Lovely site very welcoming very clean a short walk from the loch shop on site with basics but will take orders for following day for bread etc. Also a restaurant at entrance to campsite. Just back from the campsite and would like to thank everyone for making my birthday so special. We had planned a Barbecue but heavy rain put paid to that. The restaurant staff pitched in with little notice and saved the day, they put on a spread for 13 of us which was lovely and a special for the one vegetarian in the group and we had a wonderful time. I cannot thank them enough for going that extra mile and making us so welcome. Well done ladies you are a credit to Scottish hospitality hope to come back again soon. Thanks again

I spent another lovely weekend here in some amazing sunshine, the site itself is split into 3 areas caravans at the top or tents with electric hookup then 2 tent pitch areas down the bottom one of which is sort of secluded and has nice views over the campsite.

Toilets are basic but provide hot water and are free to use.

The surrounding area is lovely you can take a walk down to loch Tay through the woods from the campsite or you could enjoy a walk up one of the bens in the area.

The website does need updated though as it did say they did breakfast and we never seen it open before 6pm
