Why stay here ...

Maragowan Club Site is a picturesque family holiday location nestled on the bank of the River Lochay in Scotland. The caravan park is within comfortable walking distance of the quaint little holiday town of Killin where you can idle the time away in the various shops and restaurants.

The Maragown Club Site includes a delightful facility for babies and toddlers under 4 years old where parents can tend to the little ones in comfort. It also puts you within easy reach of a wealth of fun outdoor activities. There is a 9-hole golf course and trout fishing is permitted in the river (free) without a permit. Cycling routes, including the National Cycle Route 7 and the Rob Roy Way, are in close proximity and mountain bikes can be hired in the village of Killin. Kayaking, hill walking and mountaineering can all be undertaken from the caravan site. Walking can be enjoyed by all abilities, with numerous Munros, Corbetts and pleasant hill walks within a few miles of the site. For a step back in time with scenic beauty, visit Loch Katrine and enjoy a Sir Walter Scott steamer cruise. For the more adventurous, there are water sports centres close by at Lochearnhead and Kenmore on Loch Tay, where small boats can be launched into the loch. Scenic drives up the Glens where local wildlife abounds are also not to be missed when visiting this idyllic caravan site. A hotel opposite the site also offers live music on certain nights. A good butcher's van visits the site on a Tuesday and Friday, please ask the Warden for more details.

Local offers include 10% discounts on meals at the Killin Hotel, the Capercaillie Restaurant, The Courie Inn and the Bridge of Lochay Hotel. Ask the site staff for more details.

A warm welcome and a lovely site

We stayed for an all too brief two nights. We received such a warm welcome and then enjoyed the beautiful site and stunning location. The arrangements for the shower block are different to the usual wristbands, but we were always able to book a time that suited us - there is always a standalone toilet for any emergencies. There are so many great walks or bike rides and we were fortunate enough to see a red squirrel as we cycled round Loch Tay. We would have no hesitation in booking a return visit.

Stunningly Beautiful Location

Do not be put off by other reviews regarding the timed slots for the shower blocks. This site is absolutely all about location location location. Yes the showers and loos need a refurb but once you get the reasons for restricting access to timed slots it actually works so well. We wished that we had booked to stay longer because it was just the most beautiful perfect place to stay. It has easy access to great walking and cycling- shops pubs and eateries. It was our favourite place on a a ten day tour of Scotland staying at five different sites.

In a league of their own.

We have toured a fair bit during the Covid period, using different sites. Almost all the caravan club sites use the same system regarding toilet blocks and it seems to work well. For some reason Maragowan is keeping to a totally different regime which may suit the staff but makes it very un-user friendly for visitors. The booking of a whole block for a couple for 20 minutes is ridiculous in our view. We had to book our morning shower period in whatever slot was left over. Very difficult to understand why this method is used. And why was the washing up room closed? All the other campsites manage this by only allowing one family group at a time. Does the Caravan club not monitor what happens in their sites? Can a site make up their own rules to suit themselves? I will not be returning until Post Covid.

Access to facilities during COVID

As already mentioned by many others the draconian approach to use of the facilities was dreadful. There is nothing on the Maragowan website to indicate the limitations to using the facilities. (Please note this site is not suitable to visit unless you have excellent on board facilities) Twenty minutes a day to be booked the previous day is ridiculous. The single “emergency use” toilet in constant use. I do not understand why they did not follow the guidance of the C&H Motorhome club as this has worked quite well at other sites.

En Route Stop

The site is located nicely close to shops and all the small town can offer. We were placed in a queue at the entrance as whilst the staff were there, no one could book in till 1300 (we arrived after a 9 hour drive at 1240). The situation became worse as more people arrived and were left dangerously queuing in the road, unable to move, causing very difficult overtaking for passing traffic. This situation was finally noted and people were booked in just before 1300. We then found the strange booking system for the showers and toilets which involved putting your name on a board. So the earliest we could get a slot was at 2100 hrs the next day! We noted that someone ignored the system and a warden had to try to resolve a rather irate situation. When we finally were able to use the facilities, they were old and freezing cold (not what we are used to with the C & MH club). Why could the staff not queue units on site if there was a genuine reason why someone could not have booked people in, and why the strange facility booking system that didn't work. Location was good, but site would be challenged by good independent local site on value for money.
