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.

First Visit to Forfar

We visited this site as part of a short circular tour of parts of Scotland. The choice of this site was almost by a pin in the map as it suited our tour plans. What a find! We thought this a lovely campsite. In the main it has a circular layout with the really excellent facility block which houses both Reception and toilets. Do people really find music in a toilet block that annoying? Can't say I particularly noticed it, not in there long enough! Given the layout of the site there is a degree of people taking short cuts but not really sure how you stop that. The motorhome service point is at the site entrance and has several open grills for easy disposal of waste water. The site is next to a Country Park which has a good playground for children and plenty of "kick about" space. There is a handy Aldi supermarket a few minutes walk from the site. The Town of Forfar is an easy walk and has most services you will need. Further afield you can visit Dundee by bus should you not have your own transport.

Nice Site

This is a nice site by the Loch. Very well managed and maintained by the wardens. Forfar is an interesting little town and the coast towns are well worth a visit. I agree with other reviewers regarding radio in facilities block. Please switch it off!! The circle of pitches does have the effect of folk walking through pitches to get to the toilets which is an infringement of caravanning site etiquette.

Good for Dogs

As dog owners one of the things we look for are dog walks. We assume toilet block, reception and condition of site will be first class(as it is). The site is adjacent to Forfar Country Park with direct access. Ideal for dogs. The park has a loch with many paths round it and a large area with grass. The site is level and no need for blocks. The wifi is first class but TV requires a wire to the camp system. The piped music in the toilet block did not cause my visit to be ruined!! A convenient site for Dundea and the V & A, SS Discovery and Art Gallery.

Piped commercial radio in the facilities block ruined it for me.

Lovely well kept site, a credit to the wardens. Nice walk of 2.5 miles around the Loch. However, it’s certainly not for me as I’m one of those that absolutely cannot abide imposed music and irrelevant advertising from a local commercial radio station. A shower / toilet block should not be a place you need to get in and out of as fast as possible to avoid terrible music and adverts about local divorce lawyers and car dealers. It’s far better to have no forced listening in a shower block and please everyone rather than to have it and infuriate many. I heard an old couple complaining about this very thing with one standing outside waiting for the other to minimise the exposure for themselves. I was pleased to be spending just one night under these imposed circumstances. Sorry folks, you have got this very wrong, ditch the imposed commercial radio and the site will be dramatically better.
