This site is basic and ideal as a stop over if travelling, it's just off motorway but what comes with that is traffic noise. It's a large field, with a road round it and pitches off that, it has 2 swings a slide and a sand pit. It's not somewhere we would choose to use other than 1 stay overnight as there is nothing to do here and the road noise would annoy us. One thing that lets it down we felt was charging 50p for showers which is very much a rip off in our eyes. For 20 a night for a basic site a hot shower should be included. It's dog friendly and we don't have dogs but there were a lot of dogs going about, some barking at night which isn't great but not the sites fault more inconsiderate owners.

So fine if looking for a stop over but not for any longer.

Spent a very pleasant two nights here. Arrived mid afternoon and met Steven (Stephen)at reception. Booked in without any hassle, then taken to our pitch. A bit of general advice given about local area. Very helpful.

Apparently the site was a bit busier than normal, but plenty of room on main site. Good little play park for kids and the toilet block was more than adequate.

There is also a CL site attached to main site, with only a toilet available. Again, that would be more than adequate.

A twenty minute walk takes you into town, where there is a decent amount of places to go for food / drink.

From town you can access the shores of Loch Leven. If you want to go all the way around, it is 12(ish) miles. About 16 miles if you include the walk / cycle from the site.

We walked around the loch. Took 5 1/2 hours to walk, but there are some places to stop for food / toilet. Also plenty of seating around the walk if you have a picnic.

As far as the site is concerned, would have no hesitation in going back. Easy to find from town. Big signing pointing it out. We used sat Nav and were directed along some back roads, but no trouble using that route.

A very pleasant weekend at a well run site.

A lovely site, great friendly staff. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly staff, we initially paid for one night as any further was weather dependent and ended up staying 3. We were told where to go and set up and we could take a picnic bench to our tent. The area was well kept and was slightly sloping to prevent flooding but still flat enough to be comfortable.

The toilet block was clean and tidy and used a security code to get in. Showers were 50p for 8 minutes, which was barely enough time but adequate none the less. Water was hot and a mop and bucket provided to give the shower a clean after use.

We never used the laundry although did find when we went to have a look that it was locked. We were never informed that this would happen so were unsure of when we could use these facilities.

There was a tourist information on site which was excellent, one of the best I have seen. Some of the leaflets were a little outdated but gave you all the information you could need.

We unfortunately had some noisy residents on our first night but mentioned this to the staff and they reassured us they would have a word. Thankfully this seemed to work and had a peaceful night the following night.

Only thing I felt that the campsite lacked was an electrical socket somewhere to give electrical equipment a quick charge.

The campsite is within travelling distance of lots of amenities, its a 5 minute drive to Kinloss where there is a Sainsburys, Milnathort where there is a Nisa and a lovely ice cream shop. Glenrothes where you have a Morrison's and Asda and plenty of fast food places.

Really friendly welcome, shown to our pitch. Slightly sloping, open and no privacy between pitches. Near motorway, but didn't bother us. Pay for showers and laundry. Both a little bit run down, but adequate. Would hate to be here when the park is full, you'd be queuing for toilets. Great dog walk through the trees. Close to lovely village of Kinross. Co-op, Sainsburys, Loch Leven and boat to Castle. Also great walk or cycle around the lake if you're up for it. Perth, Stirling, Edinburgh and Dunfermline not too far away.

Warm welcome, then shown to site. We were near the motorway end of site but were not disturbed by traffic noise. Great views on three sides, nice open site. Toilets were clean and 50p gave an adequate quantity of hot water. Climbing frame and running around area for children. Dog walk through the trees at back of site where they could be let off the lead. Town is not that far away if you need to shop or eat out.

This is a lovely site, well kept with friendly, helpful owners and clean toilet/shower facilities. Access to the toilets is via a coded lock, which you'll get the code for when you pay for your stay, so try not to arrive with a full bladder.

Pitches for tents aren't marked. The site has picnic tables (which moved several times during our stay) - we were simply told to pick a table and pitch next to it.

The location is good for camping: high enough and sloping enough not to be prone to flooding; flat enough to be comfortable; on the lee side of a small hill with sheltering trees along the side that the prevailing wind would blow from. We had a couple of days where worryingly high winds were forecast but, although we could hear the wind in the trees, hardly any of it reached our tent.

The view over the Lomond Hills from our tent was beautiful.

The play area was basic but perfectly adequate, ditto the washing up room. There was also a laundry room, which we didn't use.

Turnover of campers seems to be high, of caravanners low. During our 10 days it seemed that most of the caravanners were locals who spend much of the summer here, while almost all of the campers were European tourists or cycle tourists stopping for one night. We didn't see the site anywhere near full.

We ended up here after planning a visit to Edinburgh during what turned out to be festival season - we couldn't find anywhere closer. Access to Edinburgh was easy, driving to Ingliston Park & Ride then getting a tram into the city centre. Gallowhill was also a good base for visiting other attractions. I particularly recommend getting the ferry to Loch Leven Castle (with a picnic, on a nice day).

I can't comment on the local eateries, other than to say that Kinross has a decent bakery and the biggest, busiest chippy that I've ever seen, which also does pizza, kebabs and a lovely battered haggis.
