Why stay here ...

Situated in the Perth and Kinross area of Scotland, the village of Powmill lies adjacent to the Ochil mountain range and on the border of Fife, Clackmannanshire and Kinross-shire.

The site itself offers five all-season hardstanding all with electrical hook ups. These hardstandings are suitable for Motorhomes and Caravans up to 8 meters (including drawbar). We cannot currently accommodate larger twin axel units. Three of the pitches are large enough to allow for car, caravan and awning. Easy access from the A977 with a waiting area completely off the roadway. It's a small private site suitable for adults who enjoy relaxation and the outdoors. When you arrive you will be met by either David or Karen and we'll likely be accompanied by our West Highland Terrier named Kip. We have our own chickens and subject to availability free range eggs will be for sale in the site hut. The site is alive with an abundance of wild birds so feel free to set up your feeders. We're dog friendly and a farm lane runs alongside the site leading to a small woodland suitable for dog walking. A dog waste bin is situated at the lane end. Grey and black waste disposal points are available and a central fresh water tap. A toilet, basin and shower is available for customer use.

The site enjoys wonderful scenic views of the hills and surrounding countryside both to the North and South. The immediate area offers great walks, cycle routes and the Milk Bar Restaurant is directly adjacent to the site.

Powmill CL is centrally located allowing easy access to Stirling, Dunfermline, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, Falkirk etc. The Knockhill Racing Circuit is only 4 miles away. Fife is also within easy reach for a day trip, St Andrews is about a 40 minute drive. Gleneagles is a 15 minute drive.

There are plenty of local restaurants and country pubs all within easy reach of which details can be provided if required.

Nearby sightseeing include The Wallace Monument, Stirling Castle, The Kelpies, Knockhill, Scone Palace, Japanese Gardens, Dunfermline Park and Cathedral, Loch Leven c/w its 12.5 mile heritage trail, Falkland Palace, Gleneagles Golf Course and many more.

The local shop is within walking distance and offers a good range of essentials. The famous and excellent Milk Bar Restaurant is a minute's walk away and is open from 08:30 to 17:00 offering breakfast, fantastic cakes, award winning ice cream, milkshakes, meals and a newly opened pizza shack. There is also an antiques centre within the village. The nearest pub is 2 miles away in village of The Crook of Devon and is walkable with a footpath all the way. It's a highly interesting country pub offering great simple food and is well worth the walk.

A Lovely Two Night Stay

We chose Powmill to try out our new campervan and awning as it is quite close to home. We were not disappointed. We were met by the owner David and later met his wife Karen. They were both friendly and welcoming and they have a Motorhome themselves. The site has 5 hard standing pitches in a row with an unrestricted view across the hills. The CL has the usual facilities with the addition of a small toilet and shower room. You need 2 x 50 pence pieces for a 15 minute shower. There is local information and an honesty box to pay for eggs from their own hens. The site is well maintained and there is a wooded walk down to a river. Might be a bit steep for those less able.There are local walks in lovely countryside and it is within walking distance to a local shop and the Milk Bar restaurant who have a Pizza outlet too. A bit further walk takes you to the Rumbling Bridge Gorge. Despite being close to home we felt we were away somewhere different and we would use it again. There is a bit of road noise from the nearby A977 but it does quieten down considerably in the evenings. The only thing lacking was a drive over waste point for motorhomes so take a container for grey waste. We will return to do more walking.
