 We enjoyed this site, we enjoyed the price even more 15 a night, Maragown down the road was 30, but they have a toilet block.

There is plenty of space between all the vans, you can park up wherever you fancy, in the trees or in the open. Great!

 Our second visit here and stayed 4 nights. Peaceful enough site although you do get traffic noise from the main road. We didn't see the wardens at all. There's a nice information room with books, DVDs etc. Unfortunately due to the excessive rain we have had lately the grass was sodden and in places quite boggy, not good when you had to cross the grass to the hook up.

There are no toilet facilities at this site or any children's play area, there is a small dog walk area but we chose to walk our 2 dogs around the pathways rather than in the grass/bog.

You can walk from the site to Killin village but be aware there are no paths for a fair distance and the road is busy.

We will no doubt return here but hopefully after a long dry spell!

 Lovely Site; Friendly Staff; very quiet and lovely walking. Site facilities were excellent and local pub friendly and served great food. Local history very interesting and fishing also available. All is all a great place.

Reviewer: Scouser1959 6 reviews from this member

 Excellent site very peaceful nobody bothers you. No toilet block so own shower and toilet required. Large pitches plenty of space between caravans well kept.

Set in woods so plenty of wildlife, birds ducks etc.

Great area for walking and fishing. Bit too quiet a site if you have children not much for them to do as no play area, bigger caravan club site just a mile down the road better suited for children.

Killin is a nice little village, just wish you could walk from campsite to it, but no footpath at the side of road, which is a very dangerous bendy road so not advisable to walk along it, so you have to use car to visit Killin that is the only thing wrong with where site is situated. Will not stop us coming back for a third visit though.

 Peaceful, though a little road noise as we were on the outside edge of the park nearest the road.

No facilities, but that wasn't an issue.

All of the water points are part way up a slope which is an issue coming back down as a full aquaroll wants to drag you with it.

Limited TV, no freeview, but picture Ok with directional aerial. No O2 phone signal, though orange was fine. T-mobile dongle got excellent reception!

Will return.

 A wonderful site with excellent links to many of the main tourist areas being fairly central.

Walking from the site is not wonderful but is possible. To access most footpaths you need to negotiate the road into Killin but it is worth it as there are is some spectacular countryside to walk in.

As said before the site is terraced and much of it is tree covered, there are no toilets so you need your own. The dog walk is rather small. There is also no play are so it is probably best for people without children. The lack of facilities is reflected in the price.I was a little worried there might be a lot of road noise as it is very close to an A road but in fact it was very quiet.

Killin is very prety and has some well stocked shops - the hardware come petshop was excellent and the staff very helpful. There is also a very good little folklore museum.

 Lovely peaceful site, our pitch had a lovely view of a mountain and Killin below. The lack of facilities didn't bother us, as we prefer to use our own and the price reflects that. I would imagine that some of the pitches can be a little dark because of the trees. We were on hardstanding as none of the grass pitches were in use. They did look a bit boggy!

Do try the road over Ben Law and along Glen Lyon, ending up in Aberfeldy. (But NOT with a caravan in tow!) It's quite breathtaking! Killin is small, but has a well stocked Co-op, and quite a few other shops, including a wool shop.

There was a problem with the water supply the day we left, whether it was to do with the imminent floods down below, I don't know. I was glad we were on the Clachan site, and not the Maragowan one, as they were evacuating the site in case the river came over the bank! TV & radio were useless, even tho we were in the area of the site that was supposed to be better.

 This was a lovely, peaceful site set in woodland. It has no facilities (other than electric points) but we knew this before our arrival so it wasn't a problem. This site was popular with dog owners (us among them) and occasionally we heard other dogs barking, but as the pitches are well spaced and the site is terraced it was never a problem. Our children enjoyed exploring the wooded areas around the site.

Killin itself is lovely (if a little touristy) and has plenty of facilities including a laundrette but I would not recommend walking there from the site as the road is narrow but busy during the summer.

The site is a great location to explore the Loch Lomond area and we thoroughly enjoyed our 7 night stay.

 The site is peaceful with some pitches in small groups amongst the trees and a grassy open area at the end of the site. We have been to the site twice and the first time we had a lovely pitch amongst the trees. This time we were in the grassy area, which was extremely soft, and we were looking directly into the back of another caravan, so found it more claustrophobic, but that's probably because we mostly use Certified Locations and are used to more space and less vans. We don't mind having to use the caravan shower and toilet facilities, so in that respect, the site was ideal for us. Television reception is not good in some areas of the site. We used the site as a base for exploring Glencoe, Oban and Fort William. Nearby Killin is scenic with pubs, shops, cafes and a good size children's playpark.

Reviewer: Feecamp 3 reviews from this member

 We found this to be a lovely, peaceful site with plenty of wildlife. We were there on the opening day of the season and there was no warden onsite but a simple arrangement to check in at Maragowan where we were given the key code for Clachan. There's a radio link from the gate to Maragowan so you can call a warden if required. We had to because the EHU had tripped before we even connected and someone arrived within 10 minutes - great, friendly service.

All of the pitches in use were hard standing with the grass ones not yet in service. It seems to be quite a damp place and the ground was pretty soft in places but the pitches and roads were well maintained so no problems pitching or manoeuvring.

As has been said already, this is an 'own sanitation required' site with just EHU's, water and waste facilities. Probably better for adults and ideal for bird watchers.

Best to have transport into nearby Killin but plenty of shops, eateries and walking within easy reach.
