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!
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.
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.
