Reviewer: Fiona MC 3 reviews from this member

 Stayed for 4 nights. It's lovely site - clean, tidy, quiet and the two wardens couldn't have been more helpful.

Tent pitches are nicely situated but the park is geared up more for those who can use the electric hook-ups. For the many tents which don't have electricity a fridge would be a welcome addition.

 First time there and I was loving every bit of it. The place is beautiful and I loved the beach every day. I walked the dog along the beach and the water play parks great for kids and the sand dunes and the golf Course. The most loving thing was to be able to sit in your car and look onto the ocean. Only down fall too much noise from people in other tents from the back of 2 in the morning, but just 1 bad thing and a lot of good things.

 Didn't have the wow factor when we first arrived. Was put off by the chemical factory on the campsite perimeter and the half finished look of the refurbishment. However, after 4 days there we were sold by the brilliant location next to the beach and the sites proximity to the beautiful town of Montrose. We were there during the Mofest and everyone was friendly and the place is so welcoming. So just don't be put off by first impressions!

 Arrived at site but nobody in the office, was in the process of calling the number on the door when an off duty warden turned up (sorry have forgotten your name)and booked us in. The council who have now take over the site and forgot to get somebody to cover the Friday. Not to worry proceeded to our grass pitch in front of the toilet block and set up.

The site itself is in a good location, do not be put off by the back drop of the GlaxoSmithKline factory. There is short walk to beach via an exit gate from the site. Out the main gate a short walk to the sports centre whith its swimming pool etc. A bit further on is the town of Montrose itself with all the usual shops and pubs.

The heated toilet block is kept spotless. It could do with a bit of modernisation but it works and has plenty of hot water.

The granddaughter loved seeing all the rabbits but I think there are too many now and something has to be done to keep there numbers down.

I would hope the local council realise they have a brilliant asset on their door step and spend a little money on upgrading this site.

At the moment there is no children's play park but there is enough room for them to run around.

Will definitely be back.

 South Links Caravan Park Montrose

Has re opened and is being run by Angus District Council.

Prices per night 2016/2017:-

Touring Caravan / Motorhome grass or hard standing -pitch rental incl electricity 25. 00 includes awning and dog(s)

Back packer for 1 no car 9. 50

2 -man tent no elect 11. 50,

Large tent no elect 16. 00,

Large tent with elect 18. 00

Camping pod 25 per night

Just back from a 3 night stay in our touring van with awning, on a grass pitch. Site was fully booked for a music festival but there was always showers available ( closed for cleaning 11am - noon. Toilets block and facilities were clean and modern. There is no designated children's play area at the moment but there is a super play park close by Seaside Splash suitable for disabled access with parking, and 2 cafes.

There is wonderful golden sandy beach stretching for miles which can be accessed by steps or further along there is a wooden walkway which was unfortunately damaged so access using a wheel chair or baby buggy would be difficult - until repaired.

Golf links opposite Caravan site, Swimming Pool in sports centre. Tesco and lots of other shops and restaurants. Some of the static pitches are empty so the park wasn't looking its best in May but think it will quickly become popular again due to its position in Montrose. Hubby and I loved it so we are taking grand children during school holidays. If you are a wheelchair user I would suggest you telephone warden before booking as the main toilet block has a keypad entry system which may be out of reach, although it had a disabled toilet sign. There are other blocks which seemed to have a lock and key entry however I do not think they were being used but it is worth checking before hand.

The pods are on a grass sloping in a wooden fenced area not sure if they have electricity. I suggest you take camping chairs as there is only one picnic table although there are a few others near by. Wardens were friendly.

 The main thing about this review is to inform people that the site is open and has been taken over by the local council. This was a walk round visit while we where in the area. 25 a night, this includes electric and awning. We intend to book for the end of June. Nice grass pitches, site also has big hard standing. There is statics on the site with the tourers in the middle. Toilet block nice and clean. Nice friendly chat with the couple in the office. Bags of open area for kids to roam about.

 This is really nice site that is well located for easy access to the town via a ten minute walk. The site is a few minutes walk from the amazing beach, which offers great walks, and the open areas of the links. It's next to the Glaxo works but this is not an issue at all. The site staff are very helpful, at 22 / per night for van plus awning it's good value. The showers could do with an upgrade and a few clothes hooks on the door would be very handy - but on the whole it's ok.

Montrose is a great wee historic town with plenty to do, lots of pubs restaurants etc. The George Hotel is always first class for food, just be sure to miss out lunch if you plan to go for evening meal. There's a small Tesco in town and plenty carry out places town for those who carry out or self cater. For golfer there's three clubs that welcome visitors.

The basin area is well worth a visit as it uncovers a huge area of seabed / mud flats when the tide is out.

I'm sure there is something for everyone in Montrose and surrounding area - give this site a try I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Reviewer: Mr campbell 1 review from this member

 Stayed here every year for over 5 yrs now and the new owners have really improved the site. Site is very very clean and staff cannot help enough. There's plenty to do in montrose and camp site is the perfect location for the beach park, skatepark and the new sports centre, and a 5 min walk to the town centre. Will be back next next year again. Perfect for the kids and all the family. Cannot wait to return next season. Kids also booked a pod for the night it was fantastic loads of fun. Campsite was really busy and met lots of new friends. Owners also helped us out as I forgot my hook up cable, new one made up in less than 10 mins by staff. I would highly recommend this site for familys.

 We returned after having a great time last here last year, park is in a great location with a beautiful beach, swimming pool and a short walk from town centre, a lot of work has been completed since our last visit, park is looking great. Entrance is fab

There was a down side though on arrival staff were not friendly what so ever ( owner however is a lovely man who couldn't do enough to accommodate us), toilets very clean but could do with being a bit more child friendly as I have a 2 year old whom I was showering and was basically told to hurry up so they could be closed for cleaning

Overall a lovely park but don't reckon we will return next year which is a pity as it is in a fantastic location for families with children

Reviewer: Mrs Clo 2 reviews from this member

 Stayed for 2 nights which was plenty long enough. Site very disorganised, any patch of grass is used and seems to be no order. Most of the Park's rules are ignored ie. Keeping dogs on leads, no washing lines (my daughter has a nasty red mark on her neck from running into a line tied between two trees), no commercial vehicles - plenty of them there, no sign of any tags mentioned that were to be displayed - just really unorganised. I will not be returning. There are no clear spaces/pitches so you just have to squeeze in wherever you can, and there was dog mess lying around, toilets were new but the 3 showers there were old. Just not what I had expected from looking at the website which suggests its a 4 Star site - I certainly did not rate it.
