Stayed at this site for five nights, site is very nice so peaceful we had a lot of dogs with us and were made very welcome. Only problem we had was we could not get a phone signal but we managed, would go back tot his site

We dropped onto this site almost by accident but were very pleased we did.

It's a spacious woodland setting with pitches on separate emplacements, such a pleasant change from the regimented rows of statics or wide open fields of many Scottish sites.

As said before it's a bit dated -the toilet block and games room probably was state of the art in the '70s, and has only had minor updating since. Showers were 20p, which I thought was ok if only to stop kids spending hours in there.

One site where we could stay on site all day and feel we were having a good holiday.

Hidden gem on the borders of Angus and Aberdeenshire. Wild camping with facilities. Park, club room with pool table, table tennis, tv, games, books and small shop selling sweets, juice and ice cream.

Toilets clean and been painted and some new tiles since our last visit.

Lots of beautiful scenery, walks and cycling routes.

Edzell few mins drive or 30 min easy walk, cafes, shop, chippy, hotel and pub.

Brechin 10 min drive coop, farm foods, Lidl, small Tesco, Soft Play (crazy castle), Castle Centre, leisure centre ect

Great base or weekend retreat.

£20 a night

This is a lovely site situated in the woods, around a pond, with resident ducks and a nesting pair of herons on the wee island. The pitches are spacious and the site is clean and tidy with a community area which includes TV lounge and small games room with pool table and Table tennis. The toilet facilities are a little dated, but adequate and clean. I think that you would best describe them as 'retro' :)

The staff were welcoming and helpful and the pitch was well priced at £20 per night, with hookup.

We will definitely return for another visit.

The location of the site is great - right at the bottom of Glenesk and a lovely riverside walk of about 2 miles to the village of Edzell where there are a couple of pubs and a Spar shop. Apart from slight noise from the occasional car passing it is a very peaceful and tranquil site. The welcome from the two ladies who appear to run the site was warm and helpful. The pitches are a variety of hard standing and “wild” pitches in the woods. Several pitches are by the side of the fishing loch (where, surprisingly, the usual midges didn’t seem to be a problem).

The downside was the toilet block…………it really lets the site down. Firstly - there was only one block for the whole site, which left quite a trek for those in the furthest away pitches. The building was very dated and with only 2 showers per gender, sadly inadequate - plus, having paid £20 a night for a pitch, I don’t expect to have to pay 20p for a shower !

This site has really great potential but is sadly let down by the toilet/shower block.

I probably would stay here again, if only for the location and the peace and quiet.

Arrived here in our hi-gear Corado 8 tent we were to find our own pitch as per note at reception, we toured around until we found one which was big enough, a few before that we told from another camper that the electric hook up not working.

The site itself has a lot of tree stumps that are covered in long grass which makes it harder for smaller tents the hard standing areas have weeds and moss on them and the toilet block could be doing with a good make over very dated.

The hot water at the dish washing not working. The site has potential but would need a lot of work done on the 6 months when closed. As other people say staff friendly and lovely walks near by.

Overall silly wee things could be done to improve the place, I have been on sites where it's the same cost but better facilities and only charge is for laundry not showers if going to charge for different things then then put money back into upkeep.
