General

  • Quiet rural location 11 miles from Glasgow

    Every part of this trip was made easy by the wonderful staff. We booked last minute and arrived late for check in and someone came down to meet us.
    The campsite was perfect for us as a family with plenty of space for kids to play and not overcrowded.
    Toilets were a 2min walk away.
    We had breakfast at the cafe and experienced World of Wings. Again, all staff were very friendly and helpful making the experience more positive.

    It was also a very easy location to get to from Glasgow.

    Fantastic experience at Blairlinn campsite,friendly helpful staff, and facilities accurately described.

    The face that the toilets are a 2min walk (barely 2 mins!) only added to the adventure for my 6 year old sons first camping experience.

    The next day we both had a wonderful time at the World of Wings and are both looking forward to a return visit!!

    Well done Blairlinn campsite, keep up the good work!!

    I left no review for the wi-fi as I had no need to use it.

    My partner and I stayed on this campsite for a week. All staff were very welcoming and helpful when arriving, recommending nearby shops and attractions. The campsite was very clean and quiet and the owners went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay when nearby festival security camped for the weekend. The toilets are only a 2 minute walk away, also very clean, while this campsite didn’t have any shower block, this was no issue as the local leisure center was a small drive away which had showers available. The cafe on site had great WiFi and lovely food for a good price.
    I would highly recommend this campsite.

  • Liked: 

    Un beau panorama, vue sur de jolis prés avec des chevaux, des moutons... Possibilité de faire des activités de paintball, d'accrobranche, tir à l'arc... Et une proximité avec un Park & ride intéressante et très pratique (à 5mn du camping, arrêt Greenfaulds) : le train permet de visiter soit Glasgow, soit Edimbourg.
    Wifi gratuit 24/24 dans le café ou lors de sa fermeture sur la terrasse rustique.

    Disliked: 

    Il y a des toilettes près du café, à 50 m. du pré réservé aux campeurs, mais il n'y a pas de douches ni de sanitaires. Un robinet permet de se débrouiller (prévoir jerrican et bassines pour la toilette).

Local attractions

Campsites by cities are surely splendid, and Blairlinn campsite is well placed for Scotland's two biggest. Glasgow and Edinburgh: Glasgow is around 11 miles away and Edinburgh about 25. Go to the former for those Sauchiehall Street pints after a day among the museums and galleries; the latter for many a festival (obvs) and other capital highlights like Edinburgh Castle.

Staying within countryside locale, guests at Blairlinn could canter around the local riding stables or the country walks near the Luggie Burn or cast off for whoppers at the 150 pegs and seven waters of Magicroft Coarse Fishery. Nearby Palacerigg Golf Course is open to visitors.

Pottering around Palacerigg Country Park is a topping family day out among a rare breeds collection, nature trails, play park and treetop walkway.

Cumbernauld is the nearest town to Blairlinn: it's one of Scotland's new towns so alas doesn't come with the comely old castles or churches you might expect/hope for, but is much recommended anyway for shopping and an eve at Cumbernauld Theatre. (As a new town, a look at it is also recommended for town planning/architectural geeks – and if you've ever seen Gregory's Girl you might recognise the locale.)

The nearby Antonine Wall was the most northernly frontier barrier of the Roman Empire (no, this wasn't Hadrian's Wall) and runs right across Scotland from Clyde to Firth; walk or cycle its local route or stop off at a few of the many museums.

You could also trot on a day trip to Falkirk, about 20 miles from Glasgow, for more shopping and to see equine sculptures the Kelpies and the Falkirk Wheel, connecting the Forth and Clyde and the Union canals.

Must see

  • Glasgow Cathedral (11.1 miles)
  • Gallery of Modern Art (11.9 miles)
  • Glasgow School of Art (12.1 miles)
