Lovely spot for end of August

This is a lovely site adjacent to Markinch and Balbirnie parkland. Facilities are first class and COVID secure which in these times is just so important. Leading the way in looking after customer safety it outshines many less caring commercial sites in Fife. There is no noise except that of natural woodlands which the site is within. If you object to hearing owl hooting then this site is not for you. Grey Squirrels roam the site Providing natural entertainment and much joy. This is really a fantastic site and the only downside is you have to be prepared to travel a few miles for tourist attractions as there is not much In close proximity around the Town of Markinch All in all it is a return to site and a much served well done to the wardens and team CAMC.

Excellent coping with the Covid situation.

This is a great location for exploring Fife. The site is quite secluded despite the location close to housing. The toilet facilities were spotless and the queuing system to help overcrowding in the block worked well. Our first visit but we will be back.

Spotless

I’m at Balbirnie right now. Toilets/showers are first class in condition and immaculate as far as hygiene is concerned. This site is excellent for public transport to Perth, Edinburgh, Dundee, Glenrothes, St Andrews, Anstruther and the beautiful fishing villages of the Fife coast. All good!

Not A Pleasant Stay

Stayed here recently for two weeks and found the warden and his wife friendly and welcoming. The site is well maintained, although the facilities are insufficient for the current climate. The site wifi is abysmal and were only able to get it outside the site office. We are not dog lovers and as for peace and quiet, the excessive number of dogs made it an awful stay. Dog owners might find their dogs barking at all hours somewhat cute, but we didn't. People allowed their dogs to run free, even watching their animals foul on the grass beside pitches and on the road. Someone had used the ladies disabled shower to wash their dog and the animal had even poo'd in the cubicle and the poo was just left there on the floor. Having camped and caravaned around the world, this site was a first and for us a not to be repeated experience.

Great site in ideal location

This was our 1st visit to Balbirnie and found it very peaceful in an idilic location. The all grass pitches are great but maybe not so good in bad weather. The toilet/ shower block was restricted due to COVID but were very clean. However cleaning times should be reconsidered as you have to leave the site at 12:00 and the toilet are closed for cleaning. The pitch was a good size and you feel quite private with the small plant divisions in between each pitch. The next visit we will try for a grass pitch. All staff and the wardens very helpful and our problem with the power supply was very quickly resolved. Our fault as you have to turn the plug once connected to the power supply. Great location for visiting many local attractions. Would definitely recommend this site to anyone visiting.

Balbirnie - Mid week stay for three days.

Arrived early afternoon and was greeted by their up beat team who were very helpful. The pitch was excellent and the site facilities were exceptional both for myself in the ablutions and the services for the motorhome. Around about there were plenty of sights to see and places to walk. Very picturesque and interesting. Cant' wait to visit again.

lovely site in a great location, but......

We enjoyed our stay here and the site is very tidy with little areas to pitch in making it feel much smaller than it actually is, the location is great being right beside the centre of markinch which is a nice wee town. there is a nice pub within a small level walk with a beautiful beer garden too The only downside of our visit is the cleaning schedule for the toilets and washing facilities There is a large toilet block with very clean and well kept facilities with kids toilet and bath at one end elevation, seperate male and female toilets and showers on the main elevation and a washing station for dishes and a disabled toilet on the other elevation The big frustration for us was closing ALL the facilities for cleaning between 10.30 and noon, which is when you are to leave the pitch Leaving this large site with absolutely no toilet facilities for 90 mins at this time of day is just ridiculous, especially when they have the facility to split it into two or three sections leaving at least minimal toilet facilities available This practice really needs to be looked at, as this is exactly when the visitors to the site need the facilities most. The toilet block is then closed again entirely , again with absolutely no access between1600 and 1700, which is inconvenient but not as critical as the morning closure when people are looking to head off for the day or leaving for new location i cant stress enough it is absolutely avoidable and couldnt be at a worse time for the site users, please change this procedure

Excellent

Previous review’s comments regarding “council estate” should not give concern. At one edge of the parkland there are a few houses and that’s it. We were pitched up backing onto the houses and had some lovely conversations each morning with a resident doing his gardening and enjoyed watching the antics of his cat. The parkland is beautiful, local food store is excellent and good bus and train services nearby.

Site.

Stay here last year but left after two days. The pictures don’t show the council estate behind over looking you. The pitch we were put on right by a main road and traffic lights flickering all night in the Motorhome. Worst site we ever been to.
