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.

Brilliant

We have visited lochside at least 3 times this year. There is a great Loch to walk round with the dog and local amenities are within easy walking distance. The staff are all friendly and welcoming and can’t wait to come back.

Another good stay

Been here numerous times site always immaculate and made even better by the glorious sunshine. We would recommend this site to anyone if you have not tried it then do so at the first opportunity. Everything is on the doorstep, park, Loch with great 2.5 mile circular walk, shops and supermarkets. Unlike some other reviewers we have alway found everyone to be really friendly and a large percentage dog owners the majority being well behaved and on lead or tied up. Will be back again soon.

Stopped here on our road home after visiting the 'North' of Scotland, found it to be a clean well run family orientated site. We hope to return in the future.

Not for us

Only stayed 1 night enroute to Highlands. The site is well looked after but it had a municple feel, location near the loch was quite urban and the country park surrounding it was very busy with locals. There was rather a lot of noise from the town and local sports complex the night we stayed. What really put me off was the high number of seagulls from the Loch and the area around our pitch was covered in duck and goose poo. Not very nice especially when you have a dog with you.. sorry we just didn’t like it.
