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.

We had a lovely holiday here

I booked this last minute for may half term, it was a fantastic holiday. The site is well kept and lovely scenery. We took bikes and had a few bike rides from the site, and we took kayaks which we used from the site on the river which leads to Loch Tay. The co op is close by, and there a several pubs. Would recommend visiting Kenmore and the Crannog centre, very interesting. I don’t normally use site facilities but as we were quite dirty after kayaking with muddy feet etc I decided to use shower block. They were clean but I felt they were a bit dated and grubby, but having said that I don’t normally use shower blocks so not sure what the norm standard is. Staff were lovely and helpful. I read other reviews that mentioned excessive grass cutting- I did not find this. Will be returning! My two young kids had the time of their lives meeting other kids on playground etc.

A great site

We've been here a few times and it is a consitently great site. Clean tidy quiet. With lots to do round and about. Staff are informative about local attractions. Tv hook up is brilliant!! Make sure you bring a long cable or buy one from the shop. Very reasonably priced. No negatives at all..

Lovely weekend at a lovely site,

Visited here last weekend for two nights and was very impressed with the place. Clean, tidy, friendly and well spaced pitches. Lovely walks starting from just outside the grounds, or a five minute wander into the village. Will definitely return.

Beautiful, peaceful and well situated

We visited on a cold March weekend and received the warmest of welcomes. The warden on duty was so lovely, friendly and smiling. Gorgeous mountain views from all over the site, with lots of riverside pitches. It was quiet when we were there, and felt very spacious. Facilities were clean and fresh. There’s a drying room, great for drying coats and boots if you’ve been out in the rain. There’s a nice play park on site, but with the site being right on the river, children who’d use the play park would, in my opinion, need to be accompanied at all times. It’s not a site where I’d be happy allowing my ten year old to explore alone. The site is situated just a few minutes easy walk on a pavement to Killin.

Great Site

Our first visit to this Site but it won't be our last. Friendly and efficient Staff. Not far to walk into Killin and also a nice walk down via Pier Road to the Loch. Just outside the Site , almost across the road from the entrance, there is a friendly wee Hotel/Pub where we had good service from friendly staff and a good meal too - there is a cheeky parrot in a cage who loves getting the top of his head rubbed!
