Why stay here ...

Blair Drummond Caravan Park is a charming park set within and around the old walled garden of Blair Drummond House. The sheltered site is surrounded by fine mature trees and shrubs. Adjacent to the site old amenity woodland is under renovation and there are interesting paths with wonderful displays of rhododendrons and spring bulbs.

Blair Drummond Caravan Park is set within Blair Drummond Estate and there are many quiet private tracks and roads safe for walking and cycling with children. Quarry Loch, the adjacent River Teith and woodlands provide ample opportunity for bird watching.

Adjacent to the site Blair Drummond Safari Park houses Scotland's only elephants and is a brilliant day out. Caravan Park visitors can buy tickets allowing multiple visits for the cost of a standard ticket.

Blair Drummond provides an excellent base for exploring the local area. We are a gateway to the Highlands and  Edinburgh and Glasgow are both under an hour away.  Both have wonderful museums, all free, and several recently renovated. Stirling and Doune Castle are both ten minutes away. There are great beaches in Fife, Munroes to climb and Loch Lomond National Park, all within a few miles. Oban, Loch Fyne and Glen Coe are all within an easy days drive. Quiet cycle routes on minor roads are within easy access from the caravan park.

An excellent site

We did an overnight stop here whilst travelling home - what a fabulous location! the peaceful walled garden location is lovely, and the facilities are the best. There are woodland walks in the estate, straight from the site, good helpful warden and everything immaculate and clean. just a short walk away is the Smiddy, a good farm-shop and restaurant - highly recommended!

Blair Drummond site visit

We visited this affiliated club site, for a 2 x night stay in June 2019. We really enjoyed our stay there. The location is wonderful, set within the beautiful countryside. We selected a lovely pitch, in the middle of the walled garden - most of the pitches are pretty flat. The toilet block was clean, and enough showers and WC's, but appeared a little dated compared to actual club sites - but were very clean which was the main thing. Outside of the walled garden, there was a walk through the forest, where one can take different paths, which was absolutely lovely. We spotted a Red Squirrel whilst walking through there, which was fantastic to see. Outside of the site, you can take a path, which is fine for cycling, and take in the lake nearby, and the wonderful River Teith (where we were are told Otters & Kingfishers exist), and undertake a circular walk ........if cycling the whole route (which we did), there is a section on the path that virtually becomes non-existent, because of long grass etc. However, we managed to walk our bikes through, so all was fine The staff at the site were wonderful, and were super friendly & helpful. The TV reception in that area is woeful. There are booster plug ins at each pitch, but there connection did not match ours. The staff loaned us a booster cable, but although it connected to their booster post, the other end did not fit into our TV. So the staff then lent us a Freeview Sat box - but again, we couldn't use it as we did not have a Scart plug in our tele. None of this really mattered to us as we had DVD's etc .......but next time we will take an assortment of leads to overcome, or by then we will have a Satellite dish & receiver etc !! The bus stop is at the end of the lane - we caught a bus to Stirling, which took 20 mins., and cost £15 for the 2 of us for the return journey. The Safari Park is nearby too. All in all, a great stay in a wonderful location, with charming helpful staff. Can't wait to return.

A stay in a walled garden!

Situated away from the A84 - main road from Stirling. This site is based in and around a walled garden, with plenty of pitches to choose from and with an area for families, play area available. We were welcomed by friendly wardens and helped us with the television - be aware only Satellite TV available. Facilities are well maintained and clean, but there was no recycling. A fish & chip van visited on the Friday & Saturday. Even though we had a wet week, the site was a great base to walk from and we visited Stirling, the Trossachs National Park and Loch Lomond. We will definitely use this site again.

A Wonderful Haven

We made a last minute booking to this site and really pleased that we did. Our welcome was friendly and informative. Once set up found that our Avtex TV did not work and we were given a digital aerial for the site. It unfortunately did not work but Paula tried her best in offering us different aerials leads, etc. This was not a problem for us but is something worth noting. The site is immaculate and the walks through the estate a great bonus. Only a ten minute drive to Stirling and near so many places to explore our time was well spent in this area. Would definitely recommend this site for a peaceful and relaxing break.

Pleasant and Peaceful Site - Great Location

We stayed here in late August. Set just off the A84 main road from Stirling to Callander this site is a little gem situated inside what was in a previous life a walled garden. Lovely location with immaculately maintained grounds and lovely manicured lawns between pitches. Best hard standing pitches we have come across with concrete blocks and plenty of soft spaces to peg out your awning. Toilets are well maintained and clean, but some showers are showing signs of becoming a little tired and in need of some tlc. The signs are that this was once a Caravan & Motorhome Club site by the way it is laid out and features such as electric hook up posts and service points. No TV reception but Freesat box provided FOC from the site office on request. A fish & chip van visits on Friday & Saturday evenings and is very popular. No recycling which seemed quite strange for such a well organised and maintained site. Big well equipped children’s play are, outside gas BBQ - no charge but some people didn’t appreciate that they were supposed to clean up after they used it. A great base for touring central Scotland and gateway to the Trossachs National Park and the Highlands. We shall be back.
