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.

Another amazing visit!!

Just stayed again for 12 nights, top site run very well and kept amazingly clean and tidy by Kris and Phil, they run the site very professionally during these COVID times with everything in place to make it safe and secure for all on site, nothing is a bother to them both. The location is perfect for the loch to walk around with dog and Forfar is on doorstep. Will be back as soon as open in 2021, keep up the good work and enjoy your break. TOP SITE Wills

If you like your sleep, do not stay here.

A well managed site in a great location, However..... I have never stayed at a site where so many people meet up to socialise. There were several groups on adjoining pitches who spent all evening in their awnings drinking and talking loudly. Most were quiet after 11pm but the one next to my pitch continued until well after midnight. I spoke to the management and, to their credit, they dealt with it straight away. These people were all ignoring social distancing and lockdown rules. One night, after midnight, a group of noisy youths walked right through the site! I accept that this would be difficult to manage as the site is in a busy residential town although on the edge of a Country Park. We have a dog and this site is perfect for them as there are numerous walking possibilities. Unfortunately this site suffers from the same problem as most other club sites in that some irresponsible people will not take their dogs off-site but let them foul on the grass between pitches. In this respect I think the management could do more to encourage site users to be more responsible.

Wonderful site!

We often stop over here on our annual Scottish tour. It is a wonderful site, clean and tidy and well kept. Lovely dog walk round the loch. All shopping you could wish for nearby, supermarkets and local butchers bakers etc. There was no noise from park when we stayed. Lovely helpful wardens.

Overnight Stay

We stayed one night, it was a quick late booking as the Stonehaven warden reported the site was flooding and had been evacuated, our booking at Stonehaven was put back by one night. We hadn't been to the Forfar site before but it was on the way from Killin to Stonehaven, therefore convenient and a pitch available. I must admit I was a little concerned by a review that said someone had been throwing rocks on top of the vans and recommended an internal pitch, (which we chose, just in case). There were also a few reviews complaining of noise. The site is lovely, very clean and beautifully maintained, the wardens are very nice. Its true there is a play area adjacent and due to the nice weather there were a number of young people about in the evening, however, all were well behaved and there was no excessive noise, bearing in mind the site is in a town. The walk around Forfar Loch is about 2.5 miles, flat and we enjoyed it. We didn't actually go out but Pubs/Takeaways/Groceries etc. are within easy walking distance. We would stay again.
