 Great sight with plenty of facilities and great area for children a stones throw away.

Lovely Town and plenty to do.

Campsite a little more expensive than normal and had to acquire tokens for shower but toilet facilities were spotless

 Noisy road and rail traffic on the other side of a wall and just ten metres from where we were allocated a pitch.

There were many empty pitches nearly 100 metres from this one but we were too late to move away from the noisy part. The staff should allocate pitches farther away from the road and railway first. They said they would look into this.

The grass was cut and the mower did not pick up the cuttings so they made a real mess on the camper floor. Please just pick up the cuttings to help reduce this mess. We don't want to brush the van out all the time.

Facilities good and check in / out good but other half wasn't impressed that she had to get tokens for the hair dryer but that's fair enough as it uses power, but she didn't know about this at check in.

Their sister site at St Fillans is far quieter.

 Nice site, shower block and toilets spotless,

For anyone that's not a good sleeper there's a railway just across the road.

Need a mixer deck for karaoke then it would be spot on.

 Beautifully clean caravan. Good access to beach and nearby town within walking distance.

Super laundry room. Only disappointment was that you had to pay£6. 50 to use the swimming pool.

Reviewer: Pamp22 1 review from this member

 The caravan site was lovely caravan clean overall it was lovely.

The only thing I would have a negative remark on is there is no exit on far away side of park where we were located it would have been nice to have one to get to asda and other shops there myself and my partner don't drive so this was a bit unfortunate.

I feel if they put a gate even with a key for security purposes would make peoples stay that do not drive a bit less hassle.

Date of Visit: September 2018 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Bobc51 22 reviews from this member

 The touring pitches were in a well kept flat grass area with a large stone wall between the vans and a busy road, at the far side of the road was a railway line. The noise from both at times was quite loud.

Access to a very good prom and beach is across the road and under the railway line. There is a pedestrian crossing just outside the main gate to cross the road which was needed because of the volume of traffic.

The toilet and shower block I thought was ready for a refit and very small shower cubicles, but was kept reasonably clean.

We only stayed 2 nights but at £28. 50 per night I consider this quite expensive + if you wanted a shower or use of a hair drier you had to purchase tokens at 50p a time(+ plus a £10. 00 refundable cash deposit for the facilities key).

In their touring instructions they say quite rightly that there should be no ball games and dogs should be kept on a lead at all times but there was nearly always children playing football in the touring area and certain dog owners totally disregarding the rules. (ours were kept on a lead at all times)

The instructions also stated there would be wardens checking rules were followed but we saw no-one.

Arbroath we quite enjoyed especially around the harbour area.

We would like to visit the area again but would try to find a better touring site.

 Caravan site was fantastic. Really enjoyed my stay.

Will be back this year. The site facilities were excellent.

It's a well looked after site. Well maintained.

Being across the road from the sea was perfect.

Reviewer: Caravankath 2 reviews from this member

 This touring site nestles amid the permanent static caravans on the site but is quite apart from them. Its grass is neatly cut and each pitch has it's own tap and drainage point. In addition to the electric socket, there is a television socket on the bollard giving excellent reception and loads of channels. The toilet block is clean and warm and the reception staff welcoming. There is a lovely beach across the road from the site and attractions nearby (and on the site itself) and it is possible to walk into the town if you are feeling fit. The railway line running alongside didn't bother us at all. The only downside of the site was children playing football (forbidden in the rules), climbing the walls, and riding bikes round the toilet block. More supervision is needed by staff and parents.

Reviewer: Val0712 33 reviews from this member

 Stayed at red lion for 1 night at end of june. Main reason for stay was to attend a preseason football game at the home of Arbroath fc gayfield park. On arrival the young chap at reception (who looked about 12 years old) made a mistake and tried to book me in and charge me for two nights. He did not know how to rectify this so had to call on someone else to fix it.

Was told the pitch number and asked for a £10 deposit for toilet block key but no directions to where any thing was?

First thing I did was try to locate the toilet block and have a shower only to find that you need a token for the shower which has to be purchased from the shop? severe lack of information given!

Pitches are all grass which had been recently cut but not lifted and left the site in a mess.

Went for a drink before the game in the bar on site (we were only customers) but the barmaid was more interested in her mobile phone than serving drinks so left after one drink.

Never really seen much of Arbroath that day so cant comment on the town, my team beat Arbroath 7-0 so it was a great day in that respect but PERTHSHIRE CARAVANS the owners of this site really need to take a long hard look of themselves if they want repeat business!
