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.

Another lovely visit

We recently had a few days here during the beautiful weather at the end of June.The wardens were very friendly and helpful and the site and facilities were immaculate as usual.We were lucky enough to get one of our preferred pitches beside the river and this year, for the first time ever, we were treated to the sight of a group of stags paddling along behind us.

2019 stay at site

our first time stay at this site, for the simply reason that we were told that there were good cycle routes, we were well pleased, various routes took us to Lochearnhead, old railway and forest ways, the very quiet roads down Glen Lochay and the road to Auchlyne, good animal and bird life around, Red Deer, Red Squirrels, bird life to many to mention. Site was good with very friendly staff with good knowledge of the area, good places to eat out at, but can recommend the little chip van at the village hall, overall a great stay.

A little gem in a great location.

We had the pleasure of staying at Maragowan in Killin for 2 nights mid June and despite the inclement weather, we were absolutely delighted with the site and it's facilities. Great riverside pitches, spotlessly clean facilities and a laundry - always helpful when touring. The site is well placed to walk into the village which has decent pubs, an excellent Co-Op and a couple of good shops (hard wear, outdoor persutes etc). Having dogs, the dog walking is also excellent and easy. Thank you for a highly recommended stay.
