Great camping spot!

Myself and my boyfriend found this campsite very last minute, and being fairly new to camping we didn't really know what to expect but this campsite was everything you needed! The campsite owner was great, he met us on arrival, allowed us to pick out pitch (which were all spaced out and marked up well) and also gave us some great advice on where to go for walks and nearest pubs/cafes. The campsite itself is on the smaller side which made it very peaceful and close walk to the facilities (which is always good when you need to take a trip to the bathroom in the middle of the night). The facilities were great, hot showers and toilets that were kept clean daily, washing facilities for your dishes and a charging station which is also a massive plus. I would definitely book here again, we can't wait for our next visit.

Best weekend ever

We are first time campers and as usual took to much but the campsite owner was outstanding we picked our pitch and he let us take the car near so we could empty our stuff, he gave exceptional advice on how and where to pitch, we did not go for a family pitch which was a good idea coz we mixed with various people. The facilities were first class and kept so clean every time someone had a shower the owner was in there cleaning, and for a clean freak that was amazing. With hot showers washing facilities for your dishes and even a charge station free for your phones, most places we looked at asked for a charge even for the mobiles. The owner was always at hand and checking to make sure all guests where comfortable and happy. Would we book it again well that’s a big YES

Lovely night away

We turned up just for a Saturday night to test out our new tent and get out the city. Campsite was lovely, our pitch was nice and level, only sharing our little hedged off area with two other tents! Toilets were clean and tidy. About a half hour walk into Drymen where we had dinner at the Clachan inn which was delightful - recommend booking! All in all, big thanks to everyone as it was a great night away!
