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 Old Smiddy and the Bridge of Lochay Hotel. Ask the site staff for more details.

Beautiful Autumn Colours

We stayed here the weekend before the close for the season so it was quiet on site. It’s a beautiful site right on the riverbank and we enjoyed watching the ducks and the sheep on the other side. We stayed here to break our journey further north. We stayed for two nights but wished we had stayed for longer and will definitely return for longer next year. The wardens were very friendly and helpful and helped us enjoy our holiday even more. The shops of Killin are easily reached with cafes and pub/ hotels along the way. A largish Co op is there for provisions. We went to the pub opposite for food but wouldn’t recommend it. It was mediocre at best and so was the welcome! The site is superbly placed for touring the area. We called into Glen Ogle and walked along the viaduct on the way up to the site. The Autumn colours are stunning. You can also walk here from Killin but we left that for next time. If there was a negative there is no dog walk on the site but there are walks directly outside. Looking forward to returning.

Wonderful stay - thank you

Left the wife at home & went away for a boys week to celebrate our 65th birthdays & retirements for the week 14/10/18 - 20/10/18. My mate Nigel & myself (Marc) arrived to be met by Barbara & Ian who welcomed us & briefed us on the facilities, including showing us to our pitch. We were very impressed upon arrival, with the friendliness & helpfulness of the staff, plus the excellent facilities & this impression stayed with us all week. Beautiful scenery, along with a short 10 minute walk into the village of Killin which has a good co-op general store & various other shops, pubs & resturants. The Coach House opposite the campsite greeted us warmly on our first night & we enjoyed a hearty pub meal there. We ventured further afield using a hire car to take in some distilleries, Gleneagles Hotel, Oban & other attractions which were all within approx. an hour or so. This part of Scotland has some stunning scenery & the Maragowan site is the perfect place to explore from. The autumnal colours surrounding this area are quite spectacular. My wife is very jealous after seeing the photos & hearing of our adventures that we plan to come back together next year.

Idyllic

Beautifully kept site in a stunning location. 10 minute walk to centre of lovely Killin with excellent Cooperative, cafes and outdoor hire shop. Do the friendly locals a favour and stock up in their local shops as a thank you for putting up with our vans on the way to the site. I've never seen so many large motorhomes pulling tow cars in the one area. I take my hat off to you - my 7m van is plenty long enough for my blood pressure on these twisty roads! Anyway back to business. This area is fab for walking, hill walking, history buffs, kayakers, fishing, nature lovers. Highly recommend.

Beautiful site

We stayed here for 6 nights at the end of August . The site is next to the river Lochay, and has beautiful views of the surrounding hills. If you have a kayak you can launch it from the site and have a leisurely paddle to Loch Tay for a picnic on one of the islands. We also managed to attempt some fishing on site but caught nothing.Not a skill we really possess.There are numerous walks along the Rob Roy Way and towards the Loch which are interesting, and exhausting. Our welcome was very friendly and professional and the site is well laid out and tidy. Its close to Killin with its numerous pubs and restaurants and Co-op, and the Falls of Dochart. There is also a fish and chip van near the tennis courts that makes fresh fish and chips to order.Worth a visit. There is no real bus service so you either have to have transport or just enjoy the immediate amenities, which we did. Overall a lovely site in a great location.
