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 well-equipped 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 - just see the Site Staff during office hours to obtain 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 and The Courie Inn. Ask the site staff for more details.

Beautiful location

Maragowan Caravan Club Site
A beautiful location in a lovely village. On arrival we had to wait out on the road which was dangerous. Letting us through to find a pitch would have been better as we couldn’t have left without having a barrier fob anyway! Having to queue outside the office was not a safe option, when the passenger and not the driver was left sitting in their vehicle. The toilet and shower facilities were basic and in need of immediate updating. More information about the other facilities such as a drying room (a brilliant idea, which could be included in other sites) would have been useful, but I guess the business of our arrival meant that a full induction could not be given (we didn’t know about leaving details of where you were going as one review has stated!) Another area of concern was the play area which was in the middle of the site, but not fenced in as is usual. We are sorry to give such a negative review, but they should not stop anyone from visiting such an amazing area.

Beautiful site in stunning area

Maragowan Caravan Club Site
We arrived at this site to a lovely welcome from the Warden. Pitches are level and hard standing with electric etc. The only point is the shower block, which is slightly dated although beautifully clean at all times. The view was lovely from our pitch, and there are plenty of walks up to the Falls of Dochart and to Loch Tay. We walked through the wooded area, and were lucky enough to see a red squirrel scampering around. Killen is a small village with a Co-op and a couple of other shops including a gift shop. A nice touch from the Wardens is if you are walking or climbing anywhere they ask you to fill in a form asking where you are going and what time to expect you back. A very good idea in this sort of area - thank you. We could happily have stayed another couple of nights, but will definitely return at some point.

Lovely site in a beautiful setting

Maragowan Caravan Club Site
Had a 2 night stay and wish it had been longer. Beautiful area, lovely peaceful clean site and very friendly/helpful staff. Short walk to Loch Tay and to nearby hotels etc. So impressed we booked to return in a few weeks while we were there. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for peace and quiet in the most beautiful setting.

Overnight stop

Maragowan Caravan Club Site
Stopped on way to making for west coast as it was a half way house for us. Arrived dead on checking in time which was probably an error as it was very busy. But as we were staying only for one night we wanted to make the most of our time. Would maybe hang back next time and time it better. Although it was busy and a bit of a tail back onto road check in was efficient and our pick of pitch number was right beside riverbank which was lovely. Site was great and facilities well maintained and organised. It’s is not the wardens or sites fault that the patrons don’t follow the regulations that are in place for people’s safety. Anyway site is in a great location to walk into the village for the falls pubs and shops that are there. There is also a fantastic walk down to Loch Tay and back along the old railway. Great for dog walks. Definitely would use again and be nice to stay a bit longer.

Lovely place: pity about the facilities

Maragowan Caravan Club Site
Lovely situation but facilities leave the site in a past age. Toilets and showers archaic : the worst we have encountered in our holiday in Scotland and it is not the cheapest site we’ve stayed on. TV reception ‘fair’ : it is nearer to non-existent and cannot even get radio reception. WiFi, which is far from cheap at club sites, is variable but not quick enough to use iPlayer. This is all a great shame because Killin has much going for it. The site is very busy but well run. The countryside is lovely but sadly we will avoid in future unless the facilities are brought into the current century.
