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.

Hell on earth, noisiest site ever stayed on.

Forfar Lochside Caravan Club Site
Paid for serviced pitch . Placed next to entrance barriers, 400 metre from extremely loud fun fair. Boom Boom Boom all evening. Noisy public foot path behind pitch. Pitch very good, but wanted to leave within 5 minutes, due to extreme noise. Whilst this was from outside the site, they could have let us know in advance and we would have cancelled. I suffer from severe tinnitus and this was terrible for me.

Hidden Gem

Forfar Lochside Caravan Club Site
What a lovely friendly and well kept site. An absolute gem in a nice quiet location but near the town. Kris and Phil are extremely friendly and helpful that it made our stay much more enjoyable. Toilets, showers and kitchen areas were spotless and hopefully whenever COVID restrictions are relaxed this will avoid the queuing in the mornings for using these. We will most definitely be back.

Lovely Site

Forfar Lochside Caravan Club Site
Lovely clean, flat, well laid out site situated next to a Loch and local park within easy walking distance to the town. The toilets were spotless and the site has a 2 in rule that is identified by the placing of bands outside the toilet block. Just a pity that this wasn't adhered to by all clubbers. The pitches are well spaced out and a a really good size. Whilst the park is lovely its not one for us as we like a bit more walking to do, that said, its well worth a visit if you are happy with a short walk into town and the Loch was is 2.5 miles on a circular route. We are campervanners and don't like to drive once we get to a site.
