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.

Walking notes:

The area offers many walks that are varied and interesting (leaflets are available from Reception at Maragowan). Scotlands towering Munros offer stunning views and a wonderful challenge for those with some hill walking experience.

Check out our ViewRanger walk.

Far from the expected standard

Clachan Caravan Club Site
On first visit the motorhome service area was closed. On second visit we were given a site that was too small, the previous occupant had run over the electric point because the site was too small, the mains electric did not work, the pitch was grass not what we thought we had booked and the site was sloping in two different locations. Not what we expect for a C& MH Club site.

Beautiful!!!!

Clachan Caravan Club Site
When we arrived you had to book into the larger site about a mile away, where you are given a code to the barrier. Staff were really nice, chirpy, happy and helpful even though the poor chap was so busy! When we arrived at Clachan, we were surprised at the beauty of each pitch as well as the peace. It was so quiet. Plenty of birds, we were even lucky enough to spot a red squirrel! There are no facilities for washing up, toilets or showers which didn’t bother us at all! There was an information kiosk with so many leaflets with things to do pretty much all over Scotland. The dog walk is pretty through the trees but a little small but perfect for our little pooch though. No where really for a run, however with the surrounding countryside, who needs it. Would highly recommend!!!!!

Great Location

Clachan Caravan Club Site
This site is in a great location and is really beautiful. The pitches can be challenging for twin axles without movers. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay apart from as a previous reviewer stated the smell of raw sewage at certain times. While we were there the road was being used by a large number of noisy motor bikes but for the main the road was relatively quiet. The TV reception was non existent with a round status Ariel and although the site says there is wifi it is not site wide, On the whole a great site but it seems to be a dog magnet so if you don't like dogs yapping or barking then be warned. Also why does the club have a lead rule for dogs, and not enforce it, as it seems only the minority abide by it ??

Good location

Clachan Caravan Club Site
Good location, set far enough away from the A827 for it to not be noisy. Lots of trees on the site with plenty of bird life. Site is a particularly nice layout. Unfortunately when we arrived we had a choice of two pitches and ended up on 24. It absolutely stinks, from the motor home servicing point just down the hill. We’d advise anyone to avoid this part of the site. Eating your dinner outside with the smell of sewage isn’t particularly enjoyable. Shortest dog walk of any site we’ve ever stayed at so you’ll probably end up walking round the whole site with your pooch.

A good site in fabulous location

Clachan Caravan Club Site

We stayed here for 3 nights during a very wet August. The site staff could not have been more warm in their welcome & generous in their hospitality. It is a beautifully located site in woodland above Killing, a picturesque village within the national park. Walks & climbs abound & the mixture of mountains, lochs and glens provides a stunningly attractive landscape. We were informed that the only walk into the village that didn't use the busy & narrow road was over two fields and through the golf course. We tried this once but the initial two field were only just passable & were full of grazing livestock. Consequently, we chose to drive into Killin on subsequent visits. The local Saltire Taxi service was very helpful & reliable when we ventured to local restaurants of an evening. We were humbled & impressed by the local community.

We (I!) lost out motorhome keys whilst on a walk up a mountain from Killin. Local shop owners & residents could not have been more helpful & caring. Remarkably, and to our absolute delight, we got them back via a couple who had picked them up on their way up the mountain & whom we met as they made their descent. We have rarely been so viscerally relieved & grateful! Due to the very heavy rain during our stay, we decided to move on a day earlier than planned so didn't get to taste the delights of the Courrie restaurant, which we were informed did the best food in town - an excuse for a return visit.
