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.

Peaceful site

We had a lovely week in the September sunshine a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed the beautiful scenery. We managed to get a pitch up the back in the cul-de-sac overlooking the river and it was so peaceful to have that view. Also enjoyed the ducks quacking by ever so often! The toilet blocks are a bit tired looking but very clean and plenty of hot water; good showers.

Best of the highlands

A great site set in one of the most scenic areas of Scotland. Just enjoyed a week of glorious September sun in our tourer on this peaceful riverside club site. Enjoyed all the easy walking routes around the village and lochside. Approaching the site through Killin needs cautious driving, road through village invariably one lane due to parked cars, bridge crossing one way priority and always full of tourists admiring the beautiful Falls of Dochart. Highly recommended area and site, lots to see and do.

A lovely peaceful site

Stop 3 on our Scotland expedition. A lovely small site with easy access and very central for a lot of locations. Yes the toilet block needs upgrading but it was kept very clean as were all the service points. It was a very peaceful site except for the occasional log hauler, rather them than me driving such a large outfit on narrow roads. Whilst here were travelled widely most days always ending up on our return with a drink sat on the wall overlooking the falls! We will be back again next year.

Riverside Site

It's been well over 20 years since we last visited this site. Turning off the A85 towards Killin I even remembered the Lix Toll Garage where we had to have a tyre changed all those years ago! In many ways in all those years nothing has really changed about the site that I can remember. The toilet block is of the older variety but perfectly serviceable. Good to see open grill waste water disposal at the motorhome service point. After rain, fairly common in this part of the world, some of the hardstandings hold surface water for a while. I was surprised to get a decent 4G signal on site. The village is a short walk from the site and there are several places to eat or just to have a coffee. There is a useful small Co-Op supermarket. The main tourist attraction of Killin is the Falls of Dochart which is at the opposite end of the village from the site. One advantage of the rain is that it makes the Falls even more dramatic! Those with their own transport can tour further afield from the site. There is a fairly infrequent bus service from the village to Callander.

Excellent as ever

Our fifth visit to Maragowan. 1. All good as in previous years. 2. Wardens - friendly, informed, approachable, efficient. 3. Site facilities - a little dated but clean and well managed. 4. Walks - varied and suitable all weather. Check out the circular walk to the Hydro station. 5. Well stocked Co-Op in town. 6. Tips - A) Canoe launch from site direct to river - just check with wardens. B) Reserve a table online at the Courie Inn. C) Take binoculars and walk down to loch shore in evening light for great views.
