Why stay here ...

Forfar Lochside Club Site offers a picturesque parkland location on the shores of the loch within Forfar Loch Country Park. The beautiful country park is ideal for dog walking, cycling or a quiet stroll through the trees with fantastic views - for keen walkers it is possible to walk round the entire loch! This award-winning caravan site is also situated within a few minutes' walk of the bustling centre of Forfar, the county town of Angus. 

The site has undergone extensive improvements since its acquisition by the Club. With five acres of flat, grassy parkland providing 70 pitches for touring caravans and motorhomes, the caravan site is adjacent to a splendid children's play area, pitch and putt, crazy golf and football pitches.

Forfar is an excellent base from which to explore Glamis Castle (childhood home of the Queen Mother), the Angus Glens which offer spectacular hillwalking and the rugged cliffs and sandy beaches of the Angus coast. For golf enthusiasts there are 16 courses within easy reach, including one in Forfar itself.

Weekend visit to Forfar CC

This is an excellent site, very tidy and good facilities and close proximity to Forfar. However, the approach signs are non existant and we were not the only ones to point this out to the very nice wardens after we overshoot the entrance. A local person thankfully directed us back to the site. There is a lovely 2 1/2 mile walk around the adjacent lake and the site is ideal to see the other towns nearby. Only other issue was a badly leaking tap at the chemical toilet area which resulted in several folk getting their feet wet. We will use this site again.

Got lost on the final approach

Got lost on the final approach to the caravan site due to lack of Caravan & Motorhome sign. When following the instructions which state 'In 90mtrs turn L' look for a black sign that states 'Forfar Loch Country Park', also on the sign is a small black and white caravan symbol. The orange Caravan & Motorhome sign is only visible at the site entrance. Site well kept and great for visiting Glamis Castle and surrounding area.

Lovely site

The site is spotless, managed by a really nice couple. Forfar is within walking distance, it has a variety of supermarkets and local shops, and has good bus service links to Dundee and other destinations. The Cullen Skink at the Mill on the outskirts of town is 5 star. Only negatives were the 0500 dawn chorus by gulls and pigeons, boy racers between 2100 and 2200, and a tap on a serviced pitch that turns itself off during the hours of darkness.

Fabulous site

This is my favourite site out of all the ones I have been to. Extremely clean and spacious. Everything is nearby; a lovely walk around the loch, crazy golf in the park next door (bring your own putter and golf ball), the Forfar path network goes for miles in all directions and the town centre is only a few minutes walk away. Glen Clova is a short drive away and is well worth a visit.
