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.

Love it, Love it!

Forfar Lochside Caravan Club Site
This is one of our favourite sites and we visit often. Wardens are so so nice, place is spotlessly clean as always and park very neat and tidy. Nice walk in town, nice walk round Loch with our dog,Aldi,Lidl,Asda and Tesco all within easy walking distance. We always have a chippy from The Pend chip shop( they don’t deliver) but not a far walk from site and of course not forgetting the 123 Chinese also very good and they deliver to site…. Keep up the good work wardens…see you both next year!

Great site

Forfar Lochside Caravan Club Site
In response to the person who wrote the review titled “Hell”. What an awful review on so many levels. We were in pitch 31 from 10th -13th October. The family in pitch 30 were not any inconvenience to us whatsoever and appeared lovely. The little boy did kick his football once in the direction of our van and was really apologetic. I guess it depends on how the subject is approached. Your comment around “what is invading the sites since this COVID is disgusting” is in itself a wholly terrible thing to say and you are clearly referring to people who can not defend themselves as you hide behind your review. This is a wonderful site and the management were very helpful. I am sure you could have spoken to them face to face to air your issues. However, clearly chose not to. Maybe it’s time for you to hang up your Caravanning boots and find a hotel.

Great site - once you've found it

Forfar Lochside Caravan Club Site
Great site but not well sign posted. Drove past it and had to ask directions. Needs a CAMC sign on the main road. Once in it is lovely. Clean, well maintained and generous pitches. Facilities are spotless. Some parts of the site are in shade mostly so be aware. Location is good, Right next to Forfar Loch with a 2.5 mile walk all the way around. 400m from a new Aldi and just a short walk into town.

Super effixcient welcoming site

Forfar Lochside Caravan Club Site
As a novice at this type of holiday I have been uncertain. The warm welcome received at this site was perfect. I received lots of tips on proceedure and how to settle into my site and obey camping rules. As a keen walker I was delighted to be given advice (with hand drawn maps) on where to go and route to take. The sites were well spaced out and there was always an element of privacy. But peoole were freindly and helpful at alltimes, and I mean staff and other holidaymakers. i loved this site and will definitely be back.
