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 well-equipped 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 - just see the Site Staff during office hours to obtain 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 and The Courie Inn. Ask the site staff for more details.

PLEASANT / QUIET

Maragowan Caravan Club Site
Upon arrival staff explained everything we needed to know about the site , we were then instructed to pick a pitch , before doing so staff member advised us which ones to avoid due to some being water logged due to heavy rain , we chose a pitch close to facilities . The site and facilities were clean and i would say the floor in the facilities could do with a good steam clean , other than that it is ok . There is plenty to do near the site and we went to the Capercaillie Restraunt for Lunch which we can highly recommend as the food was amazing and the staff were very polite . This is a great site for relaxing or if you are into hill walking or cycling or even general site seeing , Perth , Sterling , Aberfeldy , Pitlochry are all within short drive away and there are plenty Lochs nearby . We will recommend and return to this site .

Great location and site

Maragowan Caravan Club Site
This is probably one of my top 5 sites on the network. Great location and beautiful area to explore, on this visit we walked up Sròn a'Chlachain and Creag Buidhe and kayaked from the campsite to Loch Tay which is stunning. Unfortunately there is toxic green algae on the loch this year and this is signposted in reception. There are quite a few shops, cafes and restaurants a short walk from the campsite. We had a good time at the capercaillie. The toilet block was dated but functional. All pitches looked on par size wise and were level, with the more convetted ones along the river. The site was half full when we arrived and we were able to pick our pitch. The wardens were friendly and helpful, and checkin was quick and painless, with no fuss.

Graet location, tired showers

Maragowan Caravan Club Site
Great location. Substandard amenity block A narrow site tucked in between the river Lochay and the road from Killin to the lovely village of Kenmore. The road is not busy but can be a little noisy through the day. Near silent at night. The pitches at the far, narrow end of the site can be a little dark and you might need a TV aerial booster. The showers are hot with decent pressure but very much from the 80s. Is that a cast concrete floor in there? Great location for walkers (Tarmachan ridge, Ben Lawers and many other walks) and those wishing to explore the secrets of KiIllin - and there are a few. We watched wild beavers at dusk, a short walk away.

Excellent site, well maintained and clean

Maragowan Caravan Club Site
This was our first visit to this site and it didn’t disappoint. We asked for a view next to the river and got one. The site is lovely and clean but the toilet block could do with an upgrade, although personally I found everything acceptable A walk to the loch is about 30 minutes on an easy, hard surface lane and the walk into nearby Killin is about 20 minutes. The nearest pub we could use were also in Killin opposite the falls. Wardens were friendly and we had a very pleasant stay.
