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.

Great location and campsite

Staff were very freindly and helpful. Toilets showing there age now and could be upgraded. Staff kept them very clean. The only downside were fellow campers who constantly walked through your pitch to take a shortcut to where they wanted to go. Extremily annoying and no respect for the people pitched on there pitch that they paid good money for to enjoy.

6 Nights 8 May 2019

This was stop 5 on our multi-stop tour from Lincolnshire to Scotland (and back) with 6 nights here after a 2 hour drive from Bunree. The site sprawls along the banks of the river Lochay at the end of the village with snow-topped mountains making a dramatic backdrop. At times they are shrouded in mist creating a magical ever changing scene and in the evenings deer can be seen roaming along the other side of the river. During our stay we visited the Falls of Dochart Inn which was an absolutely charming place. We tried Shutters Restaurant and the Capercaillie for food with both offering good value. After an evening walk we called at the Coach House across from the site which is a very welcoming pub with real ale and great live entertainment at weekends. Also tried the Courie Inn which had decent beer but seemed to be the place where locals meet up to loudly shout and swear at each other over a drink. OK for a pint but didn't fancy trying to eat in that atmosphere. On the Sunday we had a lovely traditional roast lunch at the Bridge Of Lochay Hotel (recommend by the wardens) which gives 10% discount for club members. All of the above places that we visited in Killin provide free WiFi for their customers. Travelling further afield we visited Callander which was a nice place to look around and nearby Aberfoyle which has the Scottish Wool Center with large cafe and a pleasant river outlook. Things to entertain kids here too. At the far end of the loch is Aberfeldy with a few shops and Kenmore where we enjoyed a picnic on the loch side. Very nice. A very big thank you to the wardens for their help in extending our stay from the original 2 nights, we had asked several times if we could extend but it wasn't possible. Brent came over to our pitch on our last morning as we were winding the legs up to let us know of a cancellation. Ann made the booking changes and also ammended our arrival date at the next site on our round trip. Along with Ian and Barbara they make a great team who look after this site and it's visitors very well. Summary: A site which offers a peaceful stay in a pretty riverside location. The large central grass areas make it feel open and spacious. Definitely worth another visit. Next stop: Berwick Seaview

Short stay but will return!

This is an ideal site to end and extensive tour of the highlands as we did because if you don’t want to drive anymore for a while then you don’t have to everything is within walking distance there is a pub a lovely village with a great Co Op shop that was always open and great walks all around along the river Tay and besides Loch Tay along old railway lines now used as cycle ways and for walking the site is next to the river Tay with Deer roaming on the far bank good dog walking off site but very nearby Warden was lovely

Time to Relax

A site with everything to make a relaxing time, A great welcome, clean and tidy site. on the opposite side of the river deer can be seen, at night owls can be heard from time to time. There is also a dark enough sky to see a myriad of stars when the weather allows! Ben Lawers offers spectacular views. The village of Killin has a welcome, with cafes, pubs, hotels, a coop, a chemist amongst other facilities. A chip van is parked in the village hall car park. Canoes and bikes can be hired in village.
