 Stayed for two nights at this site, wish it had been more, but we had already pre-booked another site elsewhere. Site had great views, lovely clean toilets, showers and dishwashing facilities.

People were so friendly and helpful. Must thank the chap from Airdrie who came to our rescue when we had problems with our indicators on the van when leaving the site.

Great for walks, you can walk right into Broughty Ferry and it is all on the level. Main shopping area only a few minutes walk away.

Great little eating place on site with very freshly cooked food, all in all first class site and will definitely be back.

 Nice site and family friendly.

Toilet blocks clean and plenty of hotwater.

Large play park next to site and lovely beach walks. Short walk to the town with good amenities stores etc.

Staff friendly and helpful and fellow campers made us feel welcome. Will definitely be returning and will be spreading the word to our friends.

Also good value for money, and a good food van on site, sit in or takeaway.

Not far from Dundee for site seeing and shopping.

Arbroath is close by with a nice harbour as well.

 We have mixed feelings about this site. The site is fantastically place- on a beautiful part of the coast, great views and easy walking for all thanks to an excellent coastal path. The site is also well placed for the town and has a great children's play area just outside it's gates. The site has a relaxed atmosphere and The Hut serves great, well priced food.

We did however find the key system an irritation-it requires forward planning if 2 people of the opposite sex wish to use the showers or someone has gone out with the dogs, someone else wants a shower etc.

Possibly this system could be looked at now the site is gated. And if you wish to get rid of your rubbish, fingers crossed it's a good day as its a bit of a trek to the bins. The showers were clean enough and a lot of them, but they are very small/narrow.

I would recommend this site for a short stay, mostly because of it's location, but we personally would find it a rather bleak site in poor weather on a longer stay and have been on far superior sites for the same money.

 Having been on site last year, we returned again this year, to be once again, impressed by this site.

They have upgraded some areas ie. Individual shower trays, additional bathroom lighting, reduced the temperature of the water, heating in the toilets etc etc (all suggestions from previous campers!). How many sites do you know where they actually listen?? Arlene commented that they are continually taking on-board suggestions, which is great!

We are just back from the Easter Weekend there, where they put on Easter activities for the kids, and it was great to see all the 'wee faces' as they headed off on the Easter egg hunt! Real family fun!

We've went on about this site so much that some of our family members came along to join us in their caravans and tent. A first time for all of them, and they were just as delighted with the site as we are!

A site with everything on your doorstep. We are going back shortly for our third time this year!

 Stayed here last year with a tent. Have now upgraded to touring caravan. The facilities were very good last year and have improved this season. The shower blocks are very clean, tidy and warm. Showers are hot and powerful and consistently so. Bin and wash up areas are also clean and well maintained.

The Van now has a seating area where you can take advantage of an extensive menu at very reasonable prices. All food is cooked fresh and the desserts are all home baked. The lemon meringue pie was lovely. Although unlicensed, corkage is available at 2 for a bottle of wine.

Reception staff are friendly and helpful and telephone numbers for reception are published in the welcome pack, which can save trips back and forth to reception.

Television reception is very good if you aim your aerial away from the sea and have it flat. Internet is also available on the site at 3.50 a day or 20 a week. It is good quality connection and logon to the cloud is very easy and provided upon check in.

Overall a friendly site with very good amenities. AAA+++ :)

 Stayed here for over a week. Brilliant site on the seafront. Clean toilets and washing up area and all well maintained generally. Everyone was helpful with advice on what to do and for information on the locality.

Has a Sustrans cycle path running alongside which goes for about 27 miles! you can easily walk to Broughty Ferry for a day out. Buses run to Dundee every 10 minutes from the main street two minutes from the site.

Dundee has interesting Museums. Discovery Centre was a very worthy visit and there are the usual Malls to browse if the weather is bad.

We will definitely return.

Reviewer: Goresand 1 review from this member

 A long way from Somerset to visit the Open Golf Championship, but a super site for our stay. A warm welcome from Arlene and assistance from the staff to position our van was a good start.

Other reviews of this site were used to choose it and we were not disappointed. The ever-changing views across the estuary were delightful and not too obscured by the security fence that abounds the public footpath beside the site.

The toilet block and laundry/dishwashing facilities were always clean with unlimited hot water. Being 'pensioners' we did not use the adjacent play park but it appeared to be very popular. A short walk to the local shopping area provided a range of small shops and eateries, as well as a Tesco store, which provided for our needs.

The Monifieth golf links are within walking distance and there are other courses nearby. Camperdown municipal course at Dundee was a favourite.

Would love to return if only it was not over 450 miles from home.

Reviewer: Sushiguru 2 reviews from this member

 Spent a weekend here trying out our new tent.

The site is large and open, right on the edge of the river Tay; however, there is a tall fence running around the perimeter of the site since a public footpath passes on the other side, so it's not a case of wandering off the pitch and onto the shore, you have to go to an exit gate and work your way around - only a minor inconvenience.

The toilet block and dishwashing facilities are excellent, and the site overall is very clean and tidy. Mostly touring caravans, I think we were the only tent on-site when we stayed.

The railway track runs right alongside the site, so if you're bothered by railway noise then this isn't the site for you - that being said, the last train is before midnight and the first isn't until 7ish, so you can get a decent night's sleep.

We didn't venture much beyond the site and the beach, only stopping for the weekend, so can't comment on the surrounding area, only to say that the local Tesco is within walking distance.

 We have been back for a week after a week's camping in Monifieth and we still wake up every morning wishing we were back there! The site is situated in a perfect place for walking, cycling, shopping and eating. Tesco's is within walking distance but better than that are the lovely village-type shops selling fresh bread, dairy and fruit and veg. The Blue Marlin is a lovely local restaurant selling fresh fish and seafood. You can walk for miles fron just outside your tent.

The toilets and showers were always clean and well maintained and the water always warm. The tent pitches are to the back of site and are serviced by a portacabin with loos (strangely 2 for men and one for women!) and a sink for washing up. This was useful, particularly if you are caught short in the night.But remembering your toilet key is a hassle sometimes.

No review mentioned the train line behind the site. I think the reason is because you stop hearing the trains after a while.

Overall, we had a great stay and can't wait to go back.

Reviewer: Fiona W 185 reviews from this member

 Stayed for one night because we were touring. Helpful and friendly check-in. The site was OK, nothing special. Slightly over-priced but I guess we paid for the beach front location and views of the sea. A bit cramped in the far corner where we got the last EHU on a July Saturday, beside the caravan storage area. One ladies and one gents toilet in an old portacabin, plus pot wash (always queues for all of these), but it had a fridge for those without one. No showers - they're in the new block further away which we didn't use. Through a locked gate to get to the beach (so the dog was happy) - we were told to keep the gate locked to stop folk with tents walking in without paying. Trains run regularly on the line behind the site and start early: mainly for this reason, I wouldn't come back, as I prefer quieter sites.
