We stopped here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners are very helpful and cheerily guided us to our hard standing plot, on the first night, when we arrived very late. Everything was clean and spotless even though it is January and a quiet yet messy time of the year. The toilet block is fully tiled, lined with wood, heated and there was no extra charge for showers, which is always welcome.

This site is ideally situated for visiting Glasgow and the mountains. We took in the sea lochs trail and Loch Lomond over a couple of days, when it snowed and blew a gale but we were warm and cosy nestled in the shelter of Bankell Farm :)

Booked this site as we were at the end of our holidays and coming to Glasgow via fortwilliam to visit the SECC for the bbc good food show. Yes the road into the site is a little bumpy but when we arrived the very nice lady checked us in. Views over the countryside lovely, and there were a few aeroplanes en route to Glasgow airport but nothing to worry about. Excellent railway link - 20 mins to SECC and further on if you wish - beautiful walks /cycling around the reservoir and country park and we never had time but around the corner is a huge Virgin sports centre with a golf and country club so lots to do in this fab area. And of course it is right at the start of The West Highland Way - The site is opened all year, electricity, hard standing, very clean toilets and showers - ideal location - will be back!

We stayed here for 3 nights visiting friends locally. Enjoyable site very quite apart from the planes overflying from GLW. All we had at night were the cows behind us. Good warm & hot showers. A little daunting from the entrance off the road to the pitches but delightful once there. Pleasant owners & helpful. So good we are returning 2016 Sept, if they will have us. Good walking around the area.

Basic campsite with firm area to pitch tents. Area for tents had flat and sloped area in a small field surrounded by bushes & trees providing shelter but also midges but any camper should be prepared for midges anywhere in Scotland. Picnic table and sheltered picnic table in tent field. Clean showers and toilets but unisex which may not bother some. Dish washing area outside. 5 minute walk to main road and regular but hourly bus will stop if hailed and short ride to Milngavie railway station, town centre and start of the West Highland Way.

Can pitch tent if no one available & post fee through door.

We stayed one night en route to Ardnamurchan and to see friends nearby. No one around on arrival so pitched up and paid at the office in the morning. Initial impressions on a gloomy evening not great but actually much to recommend it. Pleasant situation in farmland, well cared for site, great showers, as big as nearly anywhere we've been. Drive bursting out with daffodils. We were lucky to get there without problems as we hadn't realised that from the south you really need to take the M8 rather than the M74 through Glasgow. Took us a while to get away in the morning, bit complex getting to the A82.

We would have returned on our way down but couldn't, because when we tried to book, the site was full on on one of the nights we wanted. Consequently we had to go to the Strathclyde Country Park and are now firmly hooked on that for future stop-overs near Glasgow.

We were very pleased with this site, plenty of room, other friendly backpackers and families in the caravans, and the washblock and pot-washing facilities are excellent as already described. We also appreciated the shelters in the camping field.

We found the location convenient for our friends in Paisley and access was easy once we'd found the end of the driveway! It is true that the site owners were noticeably absent until the morning office hours but I felt that they would have been in the farmhouse had we needed to knock on the door. I found it a reasonably child-friendly site though a bit boring for them - a path through one of the little copses of woodland or an area set aside for play would have been helpful - I am aware that provision of outdoor play equipment is often too difficult and costly to keep safely maintained. Perhaps a couple of benches alongside the grassy area near to the hardstandings would suggest an area for play away from the glass windows and the tents?

The reason that my son was asking me to look up the site was that our visit was greatly enhanced by two young kittens, one of whom 'the great Explorocat' followed us to the tent field and entertained the boys by getting inside the outer tent and pouncing on the bedroom tent walls.

I was rather glad that we didn't live in Britain as if we had done I have a feeling that we would have been asking the farmer if we could take a kitten home.

If any more recent visitors encounter a tortoiseshell and white young cat on the campsite, a kitten in 2012, do mention it in your review as I am being nagged here!
