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.

Beautiful

1 night stop-over whilst touring West Scotland but wish we could have stayed longer. Well kept clean site, good choice of pitches. Our two cats enjoyed the woodland walks (we only take them out on harnesses/leads) nice variety of pitches - area for families (we prefer more tucked away pitches due to cats & found an area that was perfect) can't comment on facilities as we use our own but impressions were very clean & tidy. Definitely on list to return to.

Very nice quiet site, very handy for travelling to or from Scotland

From the map, it looked as tho it might be in a busy urban area, but the site is part of the Blair Drummond country estate and the the CMC section of this affiliated site is within a large walled garden. Very quiet and peaceful level hardstandings with good facilities, tho a bit offputting to see dogs being walked around to do their 'business' on the grassed areas close to the caravans. I cant imagine spending a lot of time here, but its a great location for an overnight stay travelling to or from Scotland.

Our frequent bolt hole.

We come up here as often as possible to relax in a great friendly place, child safe with a good play park. Lovely walks on the doorstep, safari park and plenty of other things very close by. Excellent toilet blocks which are great for families, modern good showers and always clean and well kept. Shops in Doune only minutes away by car or by bike. Great cycling on the doorstep. Very friendly staff and always willing to help. Fantastic bonus if you have kids is the satellite hook up at every pitch. Bring on old sky box or get a loan of one from reception and the kids are sorted. All said this is a great site in a very accessible part of the country that will not dissapoint you. Nice big hard standing pitches and not in regimental rows like a lot of sites.

Great family site,

This site is great for family with kids of all ages, and great dog walking, it is not very handy for food shopping, A drive into Stirling and there are plenty shops and eating places. The grounds in the site are great for the kids to run and climb trees. The only down side is toilets and wash area, not the best, but tenting seems very good and used a lot , every one seems happy. Heaven for Ball games, and the grounds are very well kept.

Wildlife heaven!

We spent a few days here on our way down through Scotland. What was not immediately obvious to me booking through the web site was that this is an Affiliated site and not a full-blown CC site. The site is in a lovely old walled garden with plenty of space and ample opportunities for walks. Others have commented on the state of the shower block ceiling - as an ex-builder I was more fascinated than horrified. I presume some paintwork repairs were done using cheap paint and this has become a breeding ground for black mildew - very unsightly but probably not harmful. It just spoils what are very modern facilities - far better than most on CC sites. Wet rooms with touch sensitive controls! Dyson hand driers! The crowning glory for us was a walk that the warden told us about - a circular walk down past a loch to the river. Just by the small weir we watched an otter feeding on several occasions and when the otter vanished it was replaced by a kingfisher which also dined while we watched. All in all a very good site with scope for improvement in the paint department.
