Why stay here ...

Collierhall is a tranquil site set on a small working farm in stunning countryside 1 mile from the M74. The site itself is situated on over 1 acre of land. Guests are able to choose their own pitch as there are a variety of options including level hardstanding, lawned and secluded. Pets and children are both welcome throughout the year and dog owners can make use of a number of attractive routes to walk your pets. The nearest town to the site is Lanark, which is 7 miles away where you will find the World Heritage Site of New Lanark and the spectacular Falls of the Clyde as well as a variety of pubs, restaurants and supermarkets. There is also a shop within a short walk for any essentials you require.

We are situated approximately 35 miles from both Edinburgh and Glasgow making us an ideal base for visiting these historic cities. However if you are just looking to relax on site you will find it surrounded by open fields and great views. If you are lucky enough to stay at the right time of year you can help yourself to the apples and plums from the trees that border the site.

We have a toilet and shower for visitor use and our latest addition is free WIFI which we hope will help to enhance your stay. There are also 8 power sockets spread throughout the site giving a variety of options for guests and chemical waste disposal if required.

A great stay

Collierhall Farm
On first arrival, it has to be said, the site looks awful, with dilapidated outbuildings and piles of rusting scrap metal. Move into the actual camping field however and the prospect improves considerably. We chose a grassy pitch in the right hand corner with great views, and after that first impression, had a lovely week here. The young owner is friendly and helpful, and there is even free wi-fi, plus a toilet/shower we didn't use, but it looked perfectly acceptable. Water tap by the shower, waste disposal near the entrance to the field, and several hardstandings plus an 'over-spill' site adjacent. The site is off the main road, yet easy to access New Lanark and Falls of Clyde. Lanark has a William Wallace trail to follow, we caught a train to Glasgow from Lanark, and Edinburgh just a 35-mile easy drive. Just watch out for the midges! We would of course stay here on another occasion.

A Fab Little Hideaway

Collierhall Farm
I stayed here in May. I arrived about 3PM and was met with a warm and cheerful welcome from the man who runs the site. It is a working farm and he was busy so I handed over my fees and was directed round the back of the farm buildings and offered any pitch I wanted but he suggested two hard standing areas. I chose a hard standing area with fab views and EHU nearby. Every facility is here and it was really quiet on my visit. Amazing views and birdsong. Great facilities including WIFI. I worked from the camper van so sadly didn't explore the surrounding area but I really enjoyed the little hideaway and comfort of my van, top views and the facilities on site. I would totally recommend.

Convenient stopover from M74

Collierhall Farm
This review is based on my visit in early September 2020, I’m a single guy travelling with My cat(who stays in the caravan or a lead on the pitch being an Indoor cat), in a Adria Dart (8.3M single axle) caravan towed using a Hyundai Santa Fe. I used this site as a stop over on the way to the Highland from Devon. Staying for one night only. The site has some hard standing areas suitable for motorhomes or caravans. It has a large grass area which I used and although it was wet and soft given the time of year and weather I had no issues. The site was easy to access from the m74, the access to the field/hard standing was well signed round the buildings it was all hard made road, with some inclines. I did not use any onsite facilities other than getting fresh water which was from a tap in the yard outside the toilet not far from the pitch. Could stand aquaroll and fill with filling tube easily. The electric hook up which was conveniently placed. As I was just using the site as a stopover I did not explore the area but the area looked pleasant from the site. If travelling north from the site on M74 the next junction has a Tesco filling station that was OK to use when towing if using the outside lane of pumps. I would use the site again reasonable value at £13 including hook up

Peaceful basic site

Collierhall Farm
Stopped overnight on journey from Mull to home. Great basic site, good views, clean facilities. Site a little muddy, but it had been raining continuously for 2 days! Didn't get bogged though. Interesting array of old farm machinery in character barns. Good internet. A classic cheap and cheerful CL. Will use again when in area.

Very welcoming and a perfect peaceful location.

Collierhall Farm
Mr Dunlop came and greeted very warmly and efficiently upon our arrival. Yes the facilities are basic but we suspect these will be improved as the potential of the site is realised. The location is very convenient for anyone heading north or south on the M74. It is only a mile away but no traffic noise at the site. We found the views were stunning and the dog walk provided our collie Jaz with an interesting exploration into the fields. The grass area is going to be affected if there is rain but take advice from the owner, some of the area was cordoned off so it seems common sense that you need to be aware on arrival of where you can park.
