Why stay here ...

Maragowan Club Campsite 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.

Maragown Club Campsite 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.

Disappointing site

Maragowan Club Campsite
Arriving on a busy day, there were queues back on the road although this was not a problem as everybody was parked in the arrivals area as they should. However this didn’t seem to satisfy the officious warden who strutted around hurling instructions at people waiting, treating us as if we were idiots. His time would have been better spent helping speed up the booking in process. The site was scruffy and the grass uncut, apart from around the wardens area, which was cut immaculately. The CEP at the toilet block was disgusting, it stank and was filthy. It didn’t help that the waste water hose was creased and cracked, pouring water everywhere. Although the toilet area is old and needs refurbishment, there is no excuse for it being dirty. To be polite, the wardens were not the most energetic we have encountered.

Lovely and peaceful by the river.

Maragowan Club Campsite
We have stayed on this site many times over the years, it is well positioned for Killin, shops and restaurants, and is very peaceful if you get a pitch besides the river, by the road not so peaceful, BUT the toilets are now well past their best, with the floors being particularly bad, they look dirty and green, they are not dirty, think it must be a chemical reaction with floor material, whatever the cause they are very unpleasant, even a quick coat with a waterproof paint would help. Not nice. Good to see that the site drainage on some flood prone pitches has been sorted out. Please sort out the toilet block floors.

Excellent Site

Maragowan Club Campsite
We stayed here in April 2022 and it was our second visit to the site. The site is well laid out and most of the pitches are flat. Bring a large hammer / mallet for your awning pegs the ground on the pitches is hard. The facilities are the only thing that let down the site. They are in working order and are clean but are now of an age that they look tired and in need of upgrading. The site is located on the outskirts of the village of Killin and it is a short walk into the centre where there is a reasonable sized Co-Op and some shops to browse. There are a few places to eat and the food was good, recommend the Falls of Dochart Inn and The Killin Hotel. There are a lot of nice walks in the area which can be found in various books or apps.

NO HOT WATER

Maragowan Club Campsite

We arrived after a night of wild camping and the only reason we book into a club site is to use the showers and perhaps get a bit of local knowledge. On arrival I asked where a particular waterfall was, the reply, we’re all new this season and have no idea. The next part of our conversation was there’s no hot water so we’ve locked off the showers. Brilliant….. I know these things happen but surely a site warden could have called ahead to warn us. If we’d known we wouldn’t have made the journey. So FULL PRICE for no local knowledge or hot water.

The only reason I gave 4 blobs for good for families is that that’s what I assume it’s good for as there were plenty of kids.

PLEASANT / QUIET

Maragowan Club Campsite
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 .
