Attractively set within 400 acres of Scotish parkland, Balbirnie Park Club Campsite offers a variety of walks, some of which are suitable for cycling, wheelchairs and mobility scooters. The site is great for dog owners, with plenty of open space and woodland, and is a great holiday location for everyone in the family. You have a choice of pitches: those grouped in open areas and surrounded by statuesque mature trees or others located in charming shady glades.

The nearby village of Markinch is only steps away and offers grocery shops, a post office, restaurants, bars and cafes, most of which offer free WIFI and are dog friendly.

The stunning beaches of Elie, Leven and St Monans are just a short drive away, as well as as award winning fish and chips shop in Anstruther. The beautiful Falkland Palace and gardens are also only 5.5 miles from site and well worth a visit.

The railway station, just 15 minutes’ walk from the site, provides direct links to Edinburgh, Dundee and Perth. Why not take a day trip to Edinburgh, just an hours’ train ride away that crosses the spectacular Forth Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The bus also stops directly outside the site making access to the local area easy.

For a more active way to spend the day visit Glenrothes and Kirkaldy sporting facilities or go swimming, ten pin bowling, ice skating, go carting or horse riding (all within five miles of the site). There is also a golf club in Balbirnie Park and a further 30 courses in Fife including the famous St Andrews course. The Balbirnie Park Club Site enjoys the annual Highland games for Markinch & Glenrothes located just opposite in the John Dixon Park, every first weekend in June. Enjoy traditional bagpipes, dancing, tug of war and caber throwing.

Walking notes:

The site is surrounded by farmland and lochs, including Loch Leven, so it’s easy to find routes to explore. The East and West Lomond hills are a great starting point with routes for all abilities. There is also a coastal path from Burntisland to St. Andrews that is accessible from most coastal towns, the nearest of which is Leven about 7 miles from the site.

Ideal

Balbirnie Park Club Campsite
An ideal site for touring the Fife coast. As stated in other reviews there are a lot of trees that made it quite dark but as we used it as a base this was fine. Easy walk to the Village with a few shops & pubs also the Railway station. Great Country park next to the site for walking.

Good Stay

Balbirnie Park Club Campsite
On arrival we were met by Clare who couldn't have been any more friendly or helpful. As we were travelling with another group she advised on the best pitches so we could be together. Yes there are a lot of pitches under or near trees so you have to accept some fall from them. The grass pitches looked more open so you may avoid this if it's an issue. The site is on different levels and is landscaped so you don't see rows of Caravans. The staff were helpful and friendly and the facilities were well kept and clean. Markinch is small but has a couple of small supermarkets, pubs and takeaways. Train station is around 10 minutes walk away with good links. Scottish Deer Centre is around 15 minute drive away and is well worth a visit.

Very disappointing

Balbirnie Park Club Campsite
On a positive note the wardens were very nice and the facilities clean, but oh what depressing pitches, dark , unlevel , weedy and from most pitches, views into houses which surround the site . No will not be returning or recommending to friends. But as usual the CMC will ignore this review or placate them selves. As with other CMC sites we were given a tiny pitch as the bigger pitches were required for the larger vans , who paid the same fees as us.
