Why stay here ...

The Clachan Club Site is a find with its several open pitching areas tucked quietly away in woodland ablaze with wild flowers and an amazing range of bird and wild life. Based here, you can experience the best of this fabulous countryside on foot or by car as you are in the glens, mountains and lochs of the Central Highlands - country to dream about.

Make sure you visit the Ben Lawers Nature Reserve. From the car park, situated a thousand feet above Loch Tay, you will experience unforgettable views whilst also having access to the Edramucky Trail offering an ever changing display of alpine flowers and a wide range of bird life. For the more adventurous, Ben Lawers, Beinn Ghlas and the Tarmachan Ridge can all be accessed from the car park. 

Please note: This site does not have a toilet block.

Relaxing Clachan

Clachan Caravan Club Site
We wanted a restful break and have just spent 10 nights at the Clachan site which proved an excellent location to achieve that objective. The pitches are reasonably well separated although access to and egress from some of the grass pitches proved problematic for motorhomes following some heavy rain. The site was well maintained, the wardens were very helpful and the location is ideally suited to hillwalkers in providing access the the adjacent mountains. The single star for families relates to the adult only status of the site and the 3 star rating for facilities relates to the no toilet block provision which is clearly noted in the site description. However, I would draw attention to two aspects. A road is adjacent to the site and although daytime traffic flows were relatively light with nighttime flows were very low, any visitor easily disturbed by passing traffic should consider the implications. The site details advises that TV reception is good and a booster is available. A booster in my club experience refers to the provision of a connection in the electrical pillars to a hard-wired site-wide underground cable network . At Clachan, the booster is via a supplementary terrestrial booster mast on site. We have a Coachman VIP with a single omni-directional aerial similar to a car aerial. The combined system proved extremely unreliable and the TV was unwatchable. A number of supplementary satellite dishes were in use on site and it is assumed that these provided a satisfactory signal. Owners with a similar single wire omni-directional caravan aerial should be aware of the poor reception and it is recommended that the club amend the site details to clarify the form of the booster system provided.

Fabulous

Clachan Caravan Club Site
Don’t hesitate, this is a charming site, the wardens keep it immaculate, they are both welcoming and friendly,full of information and tips. There is not a toilet block here, it’s not important to us, as we normally use our own anyway. It’s half the price of the site down the road, always worth considering. Can’t praise this site enough, and as yet no midges.

Peaceful quiet and immaculate

Clachan Caravan Club Site
Very pleased with this site. Note...there is no bathroom block...but not a problem if you have one anyway...the grounds are immaculate and beautiful. You check in at another club site a minute away. I was greeted at Clachan by an elderly very friendly informative gentleman. I think he was a volunteer. He had treats in his pocket for my dogs. Mains connection on site...water and chemical dump near to your site. The overall location is hilly...but I liked that...the pitches are perfectly flat. Hard pitches and grass ones. Just a lovely spot...and good value.

Just spent a very peaceful weekend here. Hadn't been for about 8 years, will be back sooner this time. Well kept, though rather hilly.

A one-night stay on our Scotland tour, nice pitches, friendly staff, we use our own facilities so lack of these no issue. Amazing amount of birds to see but fair amount of traffic noise due to being close to a main road. Only downside is probably not best for motorhomers as roads not ideal for pedestrians (only access to nearby town which was delightful). Also if you visit here in summer ensure you have copious amounts of citronella - the Scottish midgie flourishes here & definitely likes the taste of an Englishman!
