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.

Well prepared CL

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.

Lovely site

On arrival the owner arrived with a half dozen free range eggs - beautiful! very friendly and relaxed atmosphere with great views. Quite close to the railway line but this was not an issue - quite like the sound of the odd train trundling past. looking out over the hills and fields of sheep and cattle. We will definately return.

Great Find

Received a lovely welcome when we arrived, as well as gift of fresh eggs, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The site is nice and open, with a lovely outlook. It is easy to reach, good directions provided and is well laid out with level hard standing pitches. Well situated for touring and walking in the area. Auchterarder is a 30 min walk away and has a good selection of shops, restaurants and hotels.

Neat and convenient little site

Nicely laid out site with hard standing and grass in between. New site with lots being spent on it and looks like still is. Very welcoming owner who was very keen to help and receive feedback. Railway line is quite close but not loud enough to bother me, same for the trunk road. No where really to walk dogs locally to the site without exploring further afield. Countryside looked great but I wasn't there long enough to explore as only stopping over.
