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. 

Special offer: 10% off one evening meal for the golfer purchasing a special 3, 5 or 7 round ticket at Killin Golf Club.

Nature Reserve

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!

Motorhomer comments

Lovely small site set in a woodland great for nature saw a red squirrel & good selection of birds & it is quiet. The road is very busy, fast cars, motorbikes & has large farm vehicles using it. So as for walking or cycling off site a bit risky so we did not. We have a dog so this was not ideal as the dog walk very very short, 3 mins? also only 1 dog bin on site. The village is quite away from the site but has shops where produce can be bought and bars. For caravans' not a problem.

Like being in a nature reserve

So glad we chose this site. Easy to get to and access in is fine but take care on exiting due to limited visibility and fast cars The site is great. So many birds. Within 15mins of my wife putting up her bird feeder there were Chaffinches, Various Tits, Siskin and a Red Spotted Woodpecker. I even saw a Red Squirrel on the last day. The site is well kept and is perfect for seeing the beautiful Scottish scenary on short or long drives around the lochs. Killin a mile down the road for provisions and the fabulous Falls of Dockart. Fishing at the other CAMC site in Killin. For £14 a night this site is brilliant. Why pay £13.50 a night more just for a toilet block. We'll be back.

One of the best

Yet another stay at Clachan, we estimate that we have stayed here for 22 weeks or more over the past 18 years, which hows how much we love this site and the area. The site itself is in a beautiful setting, largely wooded and in tiers with egress from the middle tier being somewhat complicated due to the one way system. The only other downside for us is that there are some pitches where you have to have an awning to stay on them, during busy periods at least, (of course this is not unique to Clachan). Red squirrels and many woodland birds, including hooting owls(!) add to the interest but I suspect that the Scottish midge may be a hazard in the Summer months! The area itself is full of beauty and interest in all weathers and plenty of excellent tearooms in a 30 mile radius. Clachan really is one of the Club's crown jewels.

First Timers ...

This was our very first night in our caravan - and old boy - 1995 Elddis XLi Cyclone. When we checked in to Maragowan and we were advised that there was no 'toilet/shower' block, we were immediately concerned but because Maragowan seemed quite busy we thought we would brave going back to nature and rough it using our own caravan toilet and shower. We needn't have worried - Clachan is a quiet and beautiful natural site and we managed fine with our own facilities. We appreciated the peace and quiet of Clachan when we passed Maragowan in the village later - it was busy and crowded.
