Early risers may discover deer grazing outside their windows at Tummel Valley Holiday Park, near Pitlochry in Perthshire. Buried deep in the Tay Forest Park, this 'away from it all' site is great for wildlife, with red squirrels scampering around the leafy surrounds, the occasional elusive pine marten, and plenty of bird life on the river.
There are a small number of pitches for caravans and motorhomes, with good facilities, particularly for younger children: kids' clubs for ages four to ten, a decent-sized indoor pool that runs tots and watersports sessions, crazy golf, all weather sports courts, arcade games, an adventure playground and a duck pond for a spot of pond dipping.
Adults, meanwhile, will appreciate the sauna and solarium, scenic nature trails and fishing opportunities nearby. Another highlight is a drink or meal on the outdoor patio of the Riverside Bar and Restaurant, which has glorious views over the River Tummel. In the evenings, the venue livens up with cabaret, competitions and live music.
There’s a small shop and launderette on site, but you’ll need to head into nearby Pitlochry for more substantial provisions.
You could spend several days walking and cycling the beautiful Tay Forest trails around Tummel Valley Holiday Park, taking in the glens, rivers and lochs of Highland Perthshire. Top of most visitors’ list is the awesome vista over Loch Tummel from Queen’s View: cheeky Queen Vicky claimed it was her visit which inspired the viewpoint’s name, but according to the locals, it was actually named after Queen Isabella, the wife of Robert the Bruce, hundreds of years earlier.
Three miles north of Pitlochry is a stunning National Trust of Scotland site, the Pass of Killiecrankie, where the plunging river gorge is skirted by a Victorian railway viaduct.
Other ideas for day trips include Blair Atholl Castle, at the edge of the Cairngorm National Park - an eighteenth century beauty whose grounds include a folly-filled walled garden, woodland adventure playground and sculpture trail; the lochside village of Kenmore, where you can visit Scotland’s oldest inn to inspect the poem that Robert Burns carved into the fireplace; and the Fairtrade town of Aberfeldy, home to Dewar’s World of Whisky, perfect for a bit of souvenir shopping.

From the manager...
Thanks for reviewing your holiday and for your letter to Parkdean’s Management team at Tummel Valley after your holiday had ended. Having the opportunity to talk to you was helpful in terms of us explaining the differences between our star pitches and our serviced pitches. Whilst this was neither the responsibility of Pitch up or Parkdean, we did recognise your frustration in terms of sharing with your neighbour on a serviced pitch and we hope our gesture of goodwill has helped to restore your faith in our Customer Service at Tummel Valley. We apologise if our letter redirected you to Pitchup.com, any issue regarding your booking or your stay is dealt with by Parkdean as has now taken place.
From the manager...

You can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on Pitchup.com.
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches: the campsite or park will try to grant your request.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
