Why stay here ...

Rural, peaceful location situated 1.5 miles from the town of Auchterarder. Site looking south onto Craigrossie Hill.

Auchterarder has cafes, restaurants and a supermarket. Aberuthven (1 mile) and Dunning (3.5 miles) both have country pubs.

Endless options for cyclists - cycling up over Dunning Glen, Glendevon or even to Crieff (11 miles) or Comrie (17.5 miles) - all have magnificent views and wonderful quiet cycling roads. Adventurous - then cycle to Dunkeld (31 miles) or even Aberfeldy (33 miles), through the most scenic and beautiful Scottish glens.

If you are a walker, then 'Craigrossie' has exceptional views over the Strathearn Valley. Lots of other panoramic walks closeby.

Friendly, helpful owners

Stunning location. Excellent hosts. Jesmé and Neil are very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and are very helpful. Close to the motorway and easy to find. Lovely quiet site with only cows in the fields around you. Facilities are more than adequate and are very clean. The site is well looked after. Close enough to Aucherarder and the shops and restaurants to be able to walk to them or have a carry out meal delivered to you. We’ll definitely be back.

Islabank - A great CL in a beautiful setting

Islabank
A well organised and peaceful site. Very well organised and a charming welcome as we were asked if we liked eggs. Freshly laid Pullet eggs given to us to enjoy. The site is well laid out with 5 pitches, each with an electric hookup. A long lead may be required on some of the pitches as the sockets are quite spaced out. Very convenient for Auchterarder, and the surrounding area. We would recommend this lovely site, after staying for a couple of nights en route to the Scottish Highlands.

Easy to find and good access. Well laid out and plenty of room. Traffic noise from A9 but can see that trees have been planted which will help in the future. Lovely views. Road quite busy if you go for a walk.

Islabank, a great addition to the network.

This new CL has 5 H/S pitches, each with it's own hard parking strip. There is a problem at the moment as a couple of the parking strips are too close to the adjacent pitching strip, however the owner is aware of the problem and intend sorting it out over the winter. The pitches themselves are level but quite narrow but wide enough for any unit, and have a grass strip adjacent for an awning. The site is easily accessed from the M9 and has a good wide entrance driveway. The waste facilities are close to the entrance, there is a water point suitable for filling a M/H, and had two hand sanitizers. The pitches look over the main Stirling to Perth railway and although there are frequent trains passing the noise from them was of no concern, nor was that from the motorway. The pitches are open and have grand views over towards Ben Effrey. Although there is no dog walk on site, apart from the driveway, there is a hard track less than 1/4ml from the entrance, towards Auchterarder, which can be used to make a circular walk of just over a mile with much of it offroad. There are lots of places of interest in the area including Glen Devon, the Ochil Hills, Gleneagles, Crieff, Glen Turret and it's distillery, Glen Almond and of course Perth, where here are the usual supermarkets. The owner was very friendly, helpful about places of interest and listened to ideas about the site. This is definitely a site we will use again.
