Beautiful

1 night stop-over whilst touring West Scotland but wish we could have stayed longer. Well kept clean site, good choice of pitches. Our two cats enjoyed the woodland walks (we only take them out on harnesses/leads) nice variety of pitches - area for families (we prefer more tucked away pitches due to cats & found an area that was perfect) can't comment on facilities as we use our own but impressions were very clean & tidy. Definitely on list to return to.

Very nice quiet site, very handy for travelling to or from Scotland

From the map, it looked as tho it might be in a busy urban area, but the site is part of the Blair Drummond country estate and the the CMC section of this affiliated site is within a large walled garden. Very quiet and peaceful level hardstandings with good facilities, tho a bit offputting to see dogs being walked around to do their 'business' on the grassed areas close to the caravans. I cant imagine spending a lot of time here, but its a great location for an overnight stay travelling to or from Scotland.

Our frequent bolt hole.

We come up here as often as possible to relax in a great friendly place, child safe with a good play park. Lovely walks on the doorstep, safari park and plenty of other things very close by. Excellent toilet blocks which are great for families, modern good showers and always clean and well kept. Shops in Doune only minutes away by car or by bike. Great cycling on the doorstep. Very friendly staff and always willing to help. Fantastic bonus if you have kids is the satellite hook up at every pitch. Bring on old sky box or get a loan of one from reception and the kids are sorted. All said this is a great site in a very accessible part of the country that will not dissapoint you. Nice big hard standing pitches and not in regimental rows like a lot of sites.

Great family site,

This site is great for family with kids of all ages, and great dog walking, it is not very handy for food shopping, A drive into Stirling and there are plenty shops and eating places. The grounds in the site are great for the kids to run and climb trees. The only down side is toilets and wash area, not the best, but tenting seems very good and used a lot , every one seems happy. Heaven for Ball games, and the grounds are very well kept.

Wildlife heaven!

We spent a few days here on our way down through Scotland. What was not immediately obvious to me booking through the web site was that this is an Affiliated site and not a full-blown CC site. The site is in a lovely old walled garden with plenty of space and ample opportunities for walks. Others have commented on the state of the shower block ceiling - as an ex-builder I was more fascinated than horrified. I presume some paintwork repairs were done using cheap paint and this has become a breeding ground for black mildew - very unsightly but probably not harmful. It just spoils what are very modern facilities - far better than most on CC sites. Wet rooms with touch sensitive controls! Dyson hand driers! The crowning glory for us was a walk that the warden told us about - a circular walk down past a loch to the river. Just by the small weir we watched an otter feeding on several occasions and when the otter vanished it was replaced by a kingfisher which also dined while we watched. All in all a very good site with scope for improvement in the paint department.

Disappointing

Generally the site is fairly good as have been all the sites we've stayed at. However, the site suffers from a lack of care AND some poor design. The toilet block (at the end of summer when moulds are unlikely) suffered from the ceiling being virtually covered with black mould and even the plastic clad walls showed evidence of mould at low levels where they had been given little more than a swift wipe making the mould that much more obvious. The design fault is that at the Caravan Club standard waste/clean watr and refuse point, the chemical waste point is right adjacent to the fresh water point with a fixed grill over the top. Not nice! In school report parlance, "Must try harder"

Room for improvement

Visited this site earlier in September for 3 nights. Though in a beautiful location, it was probably a bit too quiet for us, as we like to walk to the local village/pub when on site, but Blair Drummond is isolated. The showers look like they have been updated fairly recently, and I guess at some considerable expense, but were sadly let down by mouldy ceilings and mouldy curtains. We found the staff to be very helpful, though perhaps over-stretched, which may account for the poor standards in the washrooms. Stirling is 6 miles away. The castle is great, but the town centre looked a bit scruffy and litter strewn when we visited. All in all, a bit of a let down really. We won't be using 'affiliated' sites again, as from previous experience, CC sites have consistently higher standards.

Never again

Toilets were a disgrace, the toilet seats were broken, the ceiling was full of a Mould, and over the 10 days we stayed I met a new friend in the form of a used razor, which was on the cill of the shower all the time we were there. I also acquired another friend in the form of some crumpled paper which was, also stayed on the cill for the best part of 5 days. Should you have trouble with electrics out of hours, it would be pointless asking the wardens to help because on the back of the paper you get when you arrive will say out of hours hookup problems are not considered emergencies. Anyway it's over now we won't be coming back the area us nice but standards need to be maintained. Also if you have paid for your internet for  the year, Blair Drummond is a Affiliated site so it doesn't count, and as the warden said to me if you don't have a PayPal account then it's tuff. Not very good.

Lovely walled garden - shame it closes in Winter

A lovely site overall with main pitches within the old walled garden but ancillary pitches for few vans outside the main walls. One of these (directly opposite the main entrance in) is the childrens' play area which seemed quite well used but within the walls all was quiet. Good sized pitches but narrow drive made it awkward to properly reverse onto pitch unless no-one opposite (seems quite common on formal sites these days). A lot used motor movers to pitch. Easy access from M/way and just a mile past Safari Park (site sells tickets for Park which give multiple entries during your stay at no different price to buying at Park). Close to Stirling (use the P&R just beyond M/way junction), The Trossachs and Loch Lomond. Toilets/washrooms need better steam extraction to avoid the black mould on ceilings but otherwise very well maintained and cleaned (pity some users can be so messy) Only drawback for us is that it closes in the Winter months.
