A nice friendly site in a great location.

As I have a large tent with large trailer and car, there was not a lot of spaces to choose from if I wanted the electric.

So I pitched as close as I could to the hookup point, but there was already a caravan in the space where the double hookup point was, and due to a hard standing car park area between me, the caravan and the hookup situated right next to it, my 15M cable could not reach.

So I had to juggle my fridge between a rechargeable battery and the car. So the hookup point positioning could be better.

The site is also a bit hilly, so the potential pitches for large tents wanting electric seemed to be about 4, which was a small percentage of the total size of the place.

So phone up to enquire if you have a very large tent.

The toilets are clean, but basic.

Still a great site I would recommend.

We used this site as a stopping off point en route for the North. At 19 for no ehu we thought it a bit pricey compared to others. There are two camping fields which are slightly sloping with a couple of hard standing areas and a facilities block, also a higher more level area with static vans on with more hard standings and a (slightly tired) facilities block. The restaurant on site was closed. No shops/pubs in walking distance, but a nice walk through woods to the lake side.

Excellent site with lots around. Very friendly. Good prices. Very clean toilet and shower blocks (that do not charge) and Excellent on site restaurant. Friends stayed in the Octolodges which are very good value for money. Really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend. Great little playpark for the kids as well.

This was our first visit to Cruachan Farm, although we are frequent visitors to the area. We stayed in our large tent with EHU and had a pitch that was perfectly sized for our needs. There are a few picnic benches on site for you to use as well. The campsite is located about 4 miles from Killin, which is a small place with a few touristy shops and a small but excellent Co-Op and is near the shore of Loch Tay. If you want scenery and peace, this is the place for you, just an absolutely stunning location. Ben Lawers is only just over a half mile walk from the site and features a National Trust nature reserve well worth a visit. The site has a restaurant which is open for breakfast and evening meals. We didn't use it but the prices where certainly comparable with a good pub meal, and looked really appetising.

The site itself is quite hilly, and our pitch was on a slight slope, but it wasn't un-manageable and if you use the slope wisely, you will avoid any flooding, should it rain (not in Scotland, surely).

The Toilet facilities are adequate. They are kept very clean and are modern, with free hot showers etc. But they are a little on the small side for what seems to be a very popular little site. The ladies loos ran out of paper on a couple of occasions while we where there, and the hot water for the utilities ran out over a busy Saturday, but that's the only real fault as far as I was concerned.

There is a little play area for the kids, set up by a wee stream that kept the kids happy for hours, and there is a short walk from the site through the woods to the shore of Loch Tay, where they all went paddling and swimming. The little ones need to be supervised at the loch because it gets very deep VERY quickly, but my older ones managed fine.

We arrived after six, and there was no-one about to give us much in the way of a welcome, but we found everything just fine, and the staff, when we met them, where friendly and helpful.

Overall, I'm sure we will be back, just like many of the other campers we spoke to there.

A brilliant site, wonderful owners, kids had a ball ran around playing only saw them when they were hungry, toilets basic but very clean with hot water, with a bucket to mop after yourself, which I must say a lot of people done.

Beautiful countryside, lovely walks.

Grounds kept very clean, lots of space so didn't feel crowded at all.

Resultant on site but didn't use but heard good reviews from other campers.

Camped here for a few nights but have been many times in the past.

This site is lovely! Not too level but a few good pitches. Even in the trees if you wish! Staff are nice and helpful, even from the first phone call! Toilet block was always clean and tidy. Nice hot showers. Don't have kids but there was a good play area. Some lovely walks. We took our dog. He loved the walk to the Loch! There is a restaurant too, which accepts dogs. Killin is just a short drive away. A beautiful, picturesque little village. There are also good places to eat, which are dog friendly.

This is by far my favourite campsite and I can't fault it. A total joy. This is how camping should be!
