 Very peaceful by the water.

All amenities were there.

Nice for a wee break. I found it easy to find and get to.

Had a run out to various places.

I enjoyed my time spent at your site. Will visit again.

 The pond for fresh water fishing to be honest is the only thing good about this park for now.

Toilets are a mess with old facilities and mop buckets left in every room with dirty water.

Disability toilet/shower room bad mould. Hand wash was ran out with not many on site also no toilet paper in cubicles.

We watched people with dogs leave their toilets on grass without being cleaned up and 1 lady actually took her dog into the bathroom while she had a shower (you can't write this stuff).

Travelling people are using the site and while with family we were asked a few times for wood/paper.

With all serious things aside this campsite is about 2 years off for being a good campsite but until all is fixed this well be 1 for us too avoid especially £35 a night.

As for children's play park not even saying as if you have read this I will leave for you to leave a comment. Not a happy camper on this 1.

Reviewer: Ionago 1 review from this member

 The location is beautiful and my daughter saw a red squirrel which made her day! ButÖ

The facilities were terrible. No hot showers, no toilet paper. , no drying room, nada!

The pitch was gravel so we camped in the play park. To be fair they have reseeded grass plots but that should have been reflected in the cost per night which it wasnít.

With some improvements to the facilities it could become a good place miles from most places but good for escaping it all!

Have stayed in better equipped campsites for less and that was my main gripe.

Friendly staff when we saw them, bit hit and miss to find them!

 4th visit to glen esk! Never disappointed We love everything about this site the owners are lovely too bend over back wards keeping the site too a great standard.

I Giggle when people complain about ďoutdated toilet blockĒ whatís outdated it has toilets and sinks is the not what we have at home too 😂 and if they are referring to the colour I love it, reminds me of when I used to go camping as a child. (Rustic)

The owner cleans them all throughout the day it would help if people used the mop and bucket provided to mop the floor after showering, common courtesy.

10/10 every time. Canít wait to come back ☺️

 Great welcome, very friendly staff. We picked lake side pitch which was lovely, very quiet and relaxing weekend was had.

As mentioned already, toilets need bit of upgrade and if staying on other side of campsite a bit of a walk.

But would defo recommend to family and friends.

 Peaceful setting, great staff, nice level pitch, good dog walks

Didn't get a chance to try the cafe but heard good reviews,

Toilet block a bit dated but very clean, and site fully booked which speaks for itself,

Would definitely go back,

 Staff were friendly on arrival.

Campsite area was good however it is a very long walk to the toilet/shower block.

We arrived on the Friday and left on the Sunday.

Unfortunately, the toilets and showers were not cleaned once whilst we were there. It left only 2 toilets with toilet roll and the floors toilet area were very unclean as were the showers.

 Spent 3 nights up here. Think we picked the wettest weekend but the we still made the most of it. Food in the wee cafe was lovely and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

Facilities are clean and everything worked as they should. Floors were wet but thatís to be expected with the horrible weather. Didnít put us off.

Have experienced some site facilities and due to COVID they are closed so this was a huge bonus. Hired a fire pit for the driest evening and it was brilliant. Kids enjoyed melting mallows on it.

Would recommend it. Definitely going back next month. 😀

Reviewer: Redcardie 1 review from this member

 Arrived at about 7pm after a long drive in extremely heavy rain. We had booked. The owner had left, office was locked, and I wasnít surprised about this, but I got out of the van and splashed about in the downpour hoping for at least a welcoming note on the door telling me what to or suggesting a pitch. There was nothing. We drove round the site in the gloom.

There were very few people there, and in the end we chose a pitch which looked hard enough to keep us out of the mud. We didnít even know if the electricity supply would be switched on to the box, but thankfully it was.

No phone signal, no tv, showers and toilets clean but no heating, uncomfortable on a very cold day. 20p for a shower and another 20p for the hairdryer (which didnít work).

Pitch waterlogged in the morning and fairly muddy but no problems with van getting stuck. Owner still not to be found so we left and I phoned and paid her. We cancelled our second nightís booking. A little note of welcome would have made such a difference.
