Well kept site

On Angus coastal path

Next to beach

Near shops, pubs etc

Good cycling and walking routes

Clean and modern toilet block with shower cubicles with sliding doors


Full of statics

Regimented pitches

Pitches small and feel very close to neighbours

Not much of a sea view unless right at front

Perimeter fence detracts from view

Showers push button every 15 seconds!

Nowhere in shower to put your toiletries

Some pitches not very level

Train line runs at back of campsite with some noise

Would I return Ė probably not.

Reviewer: Catarinabod 55 reviews from this member

 Pros: adjacent beach and town. Clean, warm facilities with hot water. Good for short break.

Cons: regimented fairly small pitches with no separation which might be a problem in summer, shower curtains, showers too powerful and push button.

We had a sea view albeit separated by a metal fence - there were spaces along the fence for larger motorhomes which would kill the view when busy.

Needs some planting to separate pitches. Not really a problem out of season as everyone inside their unit. Shame no free wifi.

Quite pricey at £23 for grass pitch.

 Absolutely beautiful and stunning caravan park. Reception staff so friendly and helpful.

Toilets immaculate clean. Shower block has central heating so your not cold coming out it.

I canít fault this caravan park in any way and will definitely visit again.

Would be nice if price was a bit cheaper per night but seemingly this is the going rate for October. Iím brand new to touring and was shocked at what sites charge per night.

 A great location, right on the coastal path and few minutes' walk into Monifieth itself, where there is a supermarket, a few pubs/restaurants, and the bus service to Dundee and up the coast. Broughty Ferry is walkable along the coastal path. A few trees or some planting would help to break up what is quite a regimented layout, not helped by the unattractive metal fence between the site and the beach. However, overall it is a site with good amenities in a good location. The reception staff were friendly and helpful.

Reviewer: Barracudafish 7 reviews from this member

 We stayed on this site for 3 nights in March as the next door site hadn't yet opened for touring pitches. We booked and paid online. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We were allocated pitch 51 overlooking the river. The first day it poured so we took the bus outside Tesco ( a couple of minutes walk away) and took the 20 minutes journey into Dundee ( £4. 10 for 2 adults)

On the Sunday the sun shone so we had a walk along the fabulous beach and cycled into Broughty Ferry. The only thing with the pitch was that between you and the river is a footpath which is widely used and you can feel a bit like a goldfish in a bowl with many walkers looking into your van as they pass!

The toilets are very clean and warm although we didn't use their showers as we had our own. The pitches are gravel so also clean but I think that it may be a bit tight once an awning is up!

All in all, a very good site and close to a lovely beach and the town of Monifieth. Great for a weekend away.

 A really nice site literally a stone's throw from the sea and about a five minute walk to the shops and restaurants of Monifieth.

Booking online was easy and hassle free and the girl at reception was helpful and very accommodating when I asked to stay for an additional night. Although my pitch was booked, she arranged for me to move to the tented area with a reduced price and free wifi for the additional night, which was very much appreciated. Wifi is normally £2. 50 for 24 hours.

Some of the touring pitches are on quite a slope and it was interesting seeing some caravans with their stabilising legs extended to the max, some with the addition of bricks.

The toilets were immaculate, with the only gripe being about the showers which were fitted with curtains, which resulted in the dreaded 'curtain creep' as you were using them.

The site is located right next to the railway station, which means train noise and although very few trains stop here, there is the opportunity to travel to nearby Dundee on the few that do, although there is an excellent bus service (number 73) which runs to Dundee every 10 minutes. The stop is outside Tesco, again about a 5 or 10 minute walk from the site.

There is a coastal path just outside the site, which is accessible by a locked gate, the key for which is provided on check in and there is a snack bar at the exit gates, which although the food was okay, the service was atrocious and I wouldn't go back.

Overall a great site, very convenient for the coastal walk and an ideal stop for a day or a night out in Dundee with friendly and accommodating staff.

 My wife and I have been to tayview on numerous occasions. It's a fabulous site. Spotless. A lot of work has went into making the fantastic site it is. The facilities are immaculate. Very helpful staff. Well worth a visit.

Reviewer: 3Scotties 9 reviews from this member

 We visited with our Motorhome, only for one night on the occasion of dropping our son off to Uni at Dundee.

Our only disappointment was that we could not stay longer!

We found this site whilst searching for site options on ukcampsite. Co. Uk and chose it over the Caravan Club CL site options and other sites in the area because of the location, proximity to Dundee and the fact it was coastal with direct access to a beach for the dogs.

Initial pre-booking contact with the site to ask questions was excellent, they came across very friendly.

Booking on line was straightforward, price compared to Caravan Club sites was slightly higher but in line with other privately owned sites. They have to make a living and they obviously have invested, maintain and are developing the site. On hindsight £25/n including dogs given the quality of the site, pitch location & standard was good value.

The hard standing pitch we were assigned was excellent, it has a gravel section and monoblocked section with sea view, hook up with water pipe at power point. The caravan pitches seem to have individual power, water & grey water drain. There was pleanty grass pitches too.

Welcome - was great, we were running very late due to roadworks, phoned in and finally didn't get there until 5mins before the office shut. Their attitude was helpful, understanding & welcoming.

Showers and facilities were excellent with a smaller toilet & dishwashing area near our pitch.

On site cafe was a great addition, we has a bacon roll in the morning to save time. It was excellent and the staff friendly. When we left at 10 on the Sun am it was buzzing with passing trade of dog walkers sitting outside in the sun having a coffee.

Past reviews - some older ones were inaccurate of the sites current condition so ignore them, go visit yourself with an open mind.

Locality - local shops within walking distance including a well known supermarket

We hope to return soon, the Wx was mixed with sun & overnight rain, but that only added to the enjoyment of the vitit hearing the rain on the roof and tucked up cosy inside.

Thanks and keep up the good work, the maintenance standard of the site.

Overall it was really excellent and the warm welcome was really appreciated.

Reviewer: Hellodolly 1 review from this member

 Spent a couple of nights there in a tent with friends who were touring Scotland.

The staff were friendly and the toilets/showers were spotless.

Tesco and a great chip shop are a ten minute walk away as well as a couple of local pubs which were friendly.

Just outside the grounds is a playpark and sandy beach when tide is out.

There is a footpath/cycle path which takes you into Broughty Ferry one way, Carnoustie the other way. The walk into Broughty Ferry (30min walk) was lovely running along the banks of the River Tay, plenty of pubs and places to eat there. The only negative about the path is that when sitting outside the tent the public can look right in.

At night you can listen to the waves breaking on the shore a stones throw away but there is an early morning train which rumbles past which gave me a startle.

CCTV does give you the feeling of security.

It is quite a large site with static and touring caravans, it also has small wooden chalets, all and all, I was very pleased with my stay and my friends said it was one of the better sites they had stayed at.
