Reviewer: Mad Farquhar 1 review from this member

Chris was difficult to get hold off and pin down for a group of motorcyclists wanting a base for the night before Leuchars airshow and I can understand his reservations. Managed eventually to get confirmation and boy were we pleased.

This bijou campsite is easy to find (look for the curtain-siders) has no pretence but has everything you could wish for for the price of a 'deep sea diver' per skull per night.

There were 7 of us in 5 tents and we could keep a suitable distance that snoring and flatulence didn't keep each other awake. The owls in the canopy above did however!

Its an easy 15 mins stroll to Blair centre where there are good pubs and eateries. A Spar about 5 mins away has the basics you will need. Toilet facilities are bothy like but clean and tidy and the shower has suitable force and heat unlike some misnamed units.

Water is from a spring with a caveat about boiling due to potential for bugs. However local pubs will give you bottles of tap water in old lemonade bottles when pressed or just boil it hard. There were no ill effects directly attributed to the water.

Due to the crap weather Chris kindly manoeuvred a trailer for us to sit in but we used it for changing into motorcycle gear when the time came to leave and it was raining. Helpful flexible chap - as has been mentioned before.

Hesitate to recommend in case it gets too successful and spoilt!

Browsing the net to find somewhere to start our caravan holiday we came across this campsite. We contacted the owner who honestly informed us that the site was basic but accommodating. We arrived Monday 26th July intending to only stay the one night however this campsite is a wee gem in the heart of Perthshire, we liked it so much that we decided to take each night as it came as we honestly fell in love with the place and stayed for the rest of our holiday, believe me this place is impressive.

The owner and his partner are very welcoming and the site provides adequate hook up facilities for 3 caravans. How many tents it can accommodate? the owner would inform you of that.

We arrived, set up the caravan and were met by the owner. The price is very reasonable for what it offers, some of the larger holiday parks would be put to shame by this place. Loved the tranquillity of this place and we were fortunate that the weather was spectacular(yes this is in Scotland where we are known to have the privilege of finer weather on occasion.

The location is perfect for those intending to tour the Perthshire and Highland areas then return for supper and the local facilities are an easy 5 minute drive or 15 minutes if walking.

This site is perfect for couples of all ages who quite simply want to enjoy peace, tranquillity and a beautiful view of the countryside.

In addition to this splendour I had a right giggle feeding the chickens and the ducks who are nothing but hugely entertaining, the are something else and made me laugh occasionally, but don't be deterred by the animals, they are very quiet and will not disturb the peace.

So do yourself a favour and give this site a try, you will love it and we are definitely going back!

A friend and I stayed at this site for one night whilst in the area to watch the Rally of Scotland.

The site is small and basic but very well maintained. There are three caravan pitches and I would estimate space for about 12 tents.

There is a very clean bathroom with shower, toilet and sink.

The owner was very helpful and friendly. We stayed on one of the worst nights of the year for weather and the owner invited us both in for a cup of tea and a chat about the rally.

I would highly recommend this site for adults wanting a base in the area for hiking, cycling or motorsport events (the Rally of Scotland and the Colin McRae Rally are both very close by). The site does not have child friendly facilities.

The site was easy to find although not signposted from the road. The owner gave very clear directions and the sat nav was spot on.

Excellent value for money for this small, clean site.
