A nicely laid out site with plenty of grassy areas and a sufficiency of hardstandings, reasonably spaced. As so often with camping club sites, the hardstandings are a bit small but the grass pitches are a good size. The facilities are excellent, the showers are big enough even for me. The site is well protected from weather by a circle of poplar trees but therefore has no views (can't have both!). The hotel outside the gate is nearly finished now and building noise is much reduced, the A9 noise is only in the background and not at night. Pleasant walks to the river and entertainment offered by oyster catchers raising their chicks and the resident hare occasionally racing across the site.

We booked a grass pitch with electric hook-up in advance but arrived to discover that almost all the grass pitches were flooded after heavy rain. Fortunately we had extra groundsheets and rock pegs with us and the warden agreed to swap us to hardstanding for a four night mid week break. This cost an additional 4.

The site was noisy - probably the worst we have stayed on. 1. The A9 rumbles away in the background 24 hours a day but that is the least of your worries 2. As others have reported the oystercatchers do make an incredible screeching noise at night. Earplugs required 3. The racecourse are building a new facility next door - 8am - dusk - drills, diggers etc making a daytime snooze also near impossible. We felt we should have been warned about this when making the booking. 4. One morning, 8am, the cesspit 'sucking out' tanker lorry appeared a couple of meters from our tent and ran its diesel motors for 45 mins or so whilst doing its job - bad luck/timing on our part!

On the plus side: friendly staff, clean facilities (though my husband reports that only 2 of the 4 gents showers were being used), plenty of hot water and good wi-fi reception.

Would we return? Yes, Perthshire is an undiscovered gem waiting to be explored but only once the building works have finished.

First & last visit to this site for us, we left early knowing the traffic would hold us up, well we ended up early arriving at 11. 15 am, we parked up in the coned off area and waited. When 12 o clock came we jumped out the car keen to get pitched up to find the office locked blinds down and some staff inside, then we seen a notice in the window saying new rule 1 PM entry, we returned to our van put the fridge onto gas so the contents stayed cool & the freezer kept things frozen. Another 5 vans had came in behind us then another came in to block the place right up & not one warden came to tell us anything, nobody knew about the NEW rule and it was certainly not on our conformation. Anyway just before 1pm the wardens appeared showed us to our pitches, at last we could enjoy our stay in Perth.

The park was ok good play area for the kids etc, toilets were very new looking and kept clean, Perth was lovely as was the surrounding area. O forgot to say there was a power cut for around 4 hrs every body was out checking there cables etc the usual checks, It was raining so decided to phone the office no answer so on with the coat up to the office and behold there were a few staff and people asking about the power there was a sign in the window explaining why the power was off, that was lovely but why did the wardens not tell a few people on the site word would have got around, grrr.

We are members of the Caravan club 20 yrs + & was thinking of joining the Caravan & camping club, mmm not now thanks.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The site is the racecourse. Had a bit of a problem finding it as the sat nav sent us down a little lane before the site. I rang the wardens who directed us to the correct road. The wardens were welcoming and took us to our pitch. We asked for a grass pitch and they put us next to our friends. We had lots of space. The site was busy and had both static and tourer caravans and tents on. Despite this is was very quiet. The toilets were spotless, showers good and the size of them was excellent. There was plenty of room to get changed without getting clothes wet. The site wardens clean often. The cleanliness of the amenity block is a credit to them. There is a small shop on site. The only downside is that the site is not near any local amenities so you do need to drive for pubs, shops etc.

Stayed here on our way back down from the Highlands after a tour of Scotland. Its quite a large site and has everything you would expect from a CCC site. Staff are friendly, toilets and showers spotless and although I could only get on a grass pitch witch was quite small the hard standings look a good size. The site is nice and quiet if you just want to chill out but there is plenty to do if you don't. Perth is just two mile away Scone Palace is next door and lots of walks. There are also a couple of pubs in old Scone a mile and a half away. Will stay here again when in the area.

This is a level site in a rural area, so it is mainly peaceful. However it is next to the race course and there was a party taking place on the Saturday evening. The music and partygoers were quite noisy, which was OK once we shut our van windows, but would have been intrusive if we had been in a tent. I did not notice exactly when it stopped, but it was definitely over by 2330.

The toilet block was spotless with good showers. Posters up about local events nearby which was a nice touch. There is a very large info room, which has info and leaflets but not a lot else. For its size, it could easily also be a recreation room of some description.

I recommend this site, with the proviso that it might be noisy if there is a function next door.
