We have just returned from our long weekend with the family at this camp site. It is a small quiet site with a river at the bottom of it. The kids got fishing nets and paddled in their boots. They had a great time. The small play park was a welcome surprise. It was very quiet (untill we arrived, sorry...

This was my first outing with a campervan. Despite some of the reviews here, I decided to give the site a try, as it was handily placed for meeting up with a friend. Yes, it is a basic site but it had everything we needed. It's a beautiful setting by the river and, although dogs can't be loose on the...

Stayed here for 3 nights while hill walking. Big area but looks slightly un kept. Lovely area but lack of care to site is disappointing. For a weekend the campsite was very quiet yet everywhere else near by was fully booked. There is a very good shop next door which has everything you need. The shower is warm but no...

My partner, daughter and I stayed on this site for two nights last month. We rang before arrival and were told that the site was very waterlogged as they had had a lot of rain the night before. We thanked them for this information but decided that seeing as the sun was shining brightly and we wouldn't be arriving until...

Touring Scotland for the first time this year this was the only site we booked in advance. I agree with the other reviews regarding a warm genuine welcome and time to stop, chat and pass on local information . Communal fire pit was a first for us what a great idea whoever thought of that .

We had bypassed this site for many years but this April decided to give it a go as we had read on this page that the site was under new management. We arrived and were greeted by the owner, who was very pleasant and helpful. He asked if we knew the area as he could have told us of places...

The location of this site is beautiful, especially if you get a pitch next to the river. However, I would really question the amenties. There are only 2 showers and whilst camping last week one of the showers was locked and therefore couldn't be used - which is not good when there was alot of campers on this particular night....

Thanks for your review. We do actually have 3 showers available as required by our licence for the number of pitches but on this occasion the shower was locked during the day as we have many occasions where members of public coming in to use the facilities without paying . We aim to address this next year but we obviously...
