Good location

We stayed here for one night at the end of a tour of Scotland because we wanted to see the Falkirk Wheel and the Kelpies which are in nearby Falkirk. The facilities were very good and it's a quiet site, although the animal calls from the wildlife park next door are a bit disconcerting at night! There's a nice dog walking area. We were disappointed with the poor TV signal only to find when we were packing up in the morning that there was an ariel socket on the pitch number peg. It would have been helpful if the warden had told us about it when we arrived. A good site, but if you want to watch telly check out the peg!

A walk in the park

 A short stay at Blair Drummond affiliated site gave us a varied experience.  As already mentioned elsewhere, the location was ideal for visiting the Falkirk Wheel, the Kelpies and Stirling Castle, but we also explored the park. The tracks are good and signposted  'the quarry loch', 'the river', & 'Doune' but are limited as there are partridge and pheasant pens which are out of bounds. A walk following the river of just under three miles brought us to the bridge on the A84 over the river into Doune. Here we spotted a sign for Deanston distillery and decided to investigate. Still following the river we came to buildings (designed by Richard Arkwright) blackened with the 'angels share' - the evaporated liquid from the stored casks of maturing whisky. Inside we found a welcome, and, having decided against a tour, we sampled delicious coffee and homemade cake in the 'coffee bothy'. Refuelled we paused to taste a limited edition whisky produced by the distillery before returning through the park a slightly different way. The site was new to us. We found the walled garden site more open than Chatsworth, and the pitches bigger but thought the facilities a little stretched for the 90 odd pitches (plus 8 tents). The one block has only 4 showers in each side, and just 2 dish sinks. Busy when all the occupants of the seasonal pitches were in residence at the weekend. We didnt make use of, it but the site offers discounted tickets to the neighbouring safari park, good for a family day out.

Pleasant enough

Stayed here for one night as a stopover on our way further north. Site is in a peaceful location with nice walks through the surrounding estate. No shops/eateries within walking distance but Doane is only a couple of miles away, and Stirling/Dunblane are only 10 mins away. Site facilities were reasonable but in my view not up to the standards of a club site....just little things like slight mildew on the ceiling and a few cobwebs here and there. The shower was powerful, but not quite as hot as I would have liked, even when it was turned up to full. Blair Drummond Safari Park is right next door and there is a decent play area, so it's a good site for families. I would definitely stay again if passing through the area, but for me it doesn't hold enough attraction for a stay in its own right. That said there appeared to be quite a few seasonal vans on site, so it's clearly popular with some.

Blair Drummond

Beautiful parkland setting with magnificent trees and panoramas. The site itself is in a secluded walled garden setting, sheltered and peaceful. The facilities are absolutely immaculate, which presumably is why the toilet and shower blocks are shut for a couple of hours in the late morning. This is not a problem as long as one is aware of the fact. The nearest village, Doune, is a couple of miles away. Doune castle is "Winterfell" in Game of Thrones, and also appears in various other films. Blair Drummond, apart from being in a beautiful part of Scotland is within easy reach of much of the lowlands, including Glasgow and Edinburgh, and also much of the Highlands including the Trossachs national park. I would highly recommend anyone wanting to savour a wide range of Scottish experiences to stay here. We certainly intend to return.

Great weekend

We have just returned from a very nice weekend at this site, even although it is an affiliated site it has the feel of a traditional CC site. If you pitch within the walled garden of the site it has a very open spacious feel and the pitches are very spacious. The toilet blocks are modern and kept clean the only criticism I could give is that the site could really be doing with a 2nd toilet block especially in high season when the site is full. The site is right next to Blair Drummond Safari Park and being set within the grounds of the estate there are plenty of paths for walking and cycling. The historic town of Stirling is a 10 minute drive away and is well worth a visit to see the castle and the Wallace Monument. Also close by is Callander with its good little shops and pubs. Overall a great site in a good location well worth a visit

Disappointed (Stayed for 7 nights)

On first appearance the site looks very good, but it soon went down hill. Not up to the normal standard of caravan club sites. Bins were emptied late in the day on several days, meant that the bins were overflowing with rubbish. The toilets were supposed to be closed between 10 - 12 which was never kept too. Toilet block was not clean to the same standard as other CC sites 1 shower drain was always blocked, several times there was no toilet paper. People used the clothes washing sinks for washing dishes and pans (Not the site fault) There appeared to be an area outside the walled garden which was used by Campers(tents) who were not CC members and had little respect for the facilities. Office was not always manned. On arrival we were told fresh bread and milk everyday. Then told only fresh bread on the weekends, but next day they had fresh bread!!!! However, the pitches were of a good size and the grass was well maintained. An ideal centre to explore the area, sadly we will not be returning

Disapointed

Was very disappointed on Drummond Club Site, facilities were not kept clean and grounds looking a bit neglected,vehicles going very fast in and out of site certainly not very safe for children, no one around to check what was going on, never saw a warden actually on the site, only in reception when we arrived. Only stayed one night, was disappointed considering the site was in a prime site for Blair Drummond Safari Park. Not the normal excellence of the Caravan Club Sites, sorry but will not be going back.

Overnight Stop

We stopped here for a night on our way home as it is not far off the main road but it is definitely worth a longer stay. Beautifully kept, clean and welcoming. Even though it was quite busy, it was quiet and peaceful.
