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.

Stop over on way to Orkney

Stopped here for 2 nights. Lovely well run site by the river and easy to walk into the town. Beautiful walk along the edge of Loch Tay past a ruined castle, and the waterfalls at the other end of the town. The walk up the hill through the recreation ground is very steep but great views from the top and we did see a red squirrel in the woods. Stopped again for 1 night on our return and would certainly come back.

Bit soggy

This was our second visit to Maragowan, the last being several years ago . We received a warm welcome on our arrival from the site warden. The communal facilities were kept impeccably clean and tidy by the staff, no easy task given how busy the site was. Killin seems to have lost several of it shops, perhaps inevitable effect of seasonal tourism, but the Co-op is well stocked with all the essentials. Unfortunately our visit to the site coincided with some extremely heavy rain, the consequence of which was our pitch became completely inundated with 2 or 3 inches of water. It appears that some folk had received advice on arrival from wardens on which pitches to avoid, unfortunately we didn't. Equally unfortunate was leaving our Wellingtons at home, making the packing up a rather damp affair. We could have moved to another pitch but, given we had only one more night booked, we cut our losses and moved on.The weather is often wet in this part of the world, it was a bit disappointing that the pitch collected rather than shed water. We will return sometime in future, perhaps in a different month and definitely to a different pitch.

Great site

We received a very friendly welcome at the site, facilities explained and we even had a choice of pitches. Facilities very good and site well maintained. Lots of fabulous walks all very dog friendly. Village nearby with lots of shops, pubs and of course the waterfalls. Would thoroughly recommend.

Staff here are so kind and helpful, my first solo trip and managed to wreck the jockey wheel! Brent sorted me out with calm good humour and patience and I had a great few days. ( All fixed now). Really lovely site, one to return to.

Great Site

Loved this site with its spectacular location, ease of access to Killin and to cycle routes. Try cycling alongside Loch Tay to Kenmore (it's not flat though) or up Glen Lochay and do the old Moirlanich Longhouse. Plenty of walks too. Philanmary
