What a fantastic site! Quiet peaceful family run, great welcome and clear advice on where everything was, local amenities, sea fishing marks, walks, cycle routes etc etc. ! Dog friendly site and local pub. Their own bacon, haggis, meat, fish and eggs for sale and lots of information leaflets available in the spotless toilet shower block. Highlight has to be the evening gathering in the sites Loch side bothy where you get a couple of hours to catch up with the owners and other caravanners/ motorhomers/ campers on site. It gives this place a unique atmosphere so the even after one night you feel your amongst friends. A brilliant idea! Fishing on site was superb with great advice given from Darren re best techniques. A gem of a site with lots to do in the area. Canít wait to return very soon! Thank you.

What a great Campsite, Clean and well maintained, everyone at the site was so friendly, especially the owners. WE were made to feel very welcome as if staying as part of the family. Very quiet and relaxing plenty to see and do, shame we had to come home. Facilities are spot on good level hard standing pitches and well sheltered nice views. We shall certainly like to return again and recommend it to family and friends. Thanks Rusty and Darren.

This is a superb little site. Only space for around 9 units so is nice and quiet and intimate. The trout lake is the focal point of the site, with fishing permitted. The facilities, though not numerous are seriously smart, with some clever, yet simple little additions, to make your stay fun and comfortable. The family have rare breed pigs on the site and well as chucks, so there was plenty of nice food to buy at a good price.

We cant wait to go again. It has now been placed high on our list of 'must get back ASAP ' sites.

I think that the thought that has, and is still, going on shows that this project is surely a labour of love for the owners

I have visited Garlieston Lodge several times this year. The site is a haven of peace and tranquillity. The owners make you very welcome and the site is well maintained and immaculate, with good size pitches and many of them over looking the fishing lake. No matter what the season, you can enjoy watching and listening to the wildlife on the site, buy free range Pork and eggs and chill. I have already booked for next year. This is the perfect base for exploring this part of Scotland.

Reviewer: AlisonBob 7 reviews from this member

Site was immaculate and very well cared for, the pitches are all hard standing we just put a couple of extra heavy duty foot prints under our trailer tents ground sheet for added protection. Had no problems pegging the unit out but our pegs are rock pegs.

The site is quite picturesque with the lake, a range of wildlife frequents the site, saw a couple of kingfishers and dog fox attempted to get at the owner ducks one morning

Special thanks needs to go to Darren for my fly fishing lesson, he has the patience of a saint. Fished a couple of times after my lesson but was not successful.

Many thanks for a great holiday

Just had a wonderful week at garlieston lodge. It was every bit as good as we imagined it to be. The site is an ongoing project for Rusty Chris and Darren and will keep improving in years to come. Just a bit too far from tees side to get there for weekends as we would definitely be regulars. Particularly enjoyed the 6pm till 8pm get together bring your own drink sessions in Rusty`s huge timber man shed. Not a compulsory thing, so you don't feel obliged, but everyone welcome, including your dogs which can interact off lead around your feet while you socialise with fellow campers. This is a fantastic venue that we will most definitely return to.

Great area for walking with fantastic views and nice dog friendly pub couple of minutes walk away with great views across the bay. Cant wait to return
