If you could conjure up a vision of a perfect Scottish hideaway, it might just look a bit like this: hugging the banks of a river bursting with salmon, and encircled by verdant hills - a bucolic idyll in a region that offers fantastic walking, cycling and golfing opportunities, yet only a short drive from some fascinating towns and cities.
Balgair Castle Holiday Park has great facilities, including a brand new outdoor pool and on-site bistro (check the site terms under the 'Policies' tab for info on opening times). The bar offers free live entertainment on a Saturday evening only from May to October. There are free regular children's activities taking place during the months of July and August.

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.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
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.

Within easy walking distance are two snug village pubs, a leisure centre with squash courts and indoor bowling, and the luxurious Culcreuch Castle Hotel, a converted castle with lovely grounds that would be perfect for afternoon tea or an evening treat. The neighbouring village of Kippin also has a couple of good pubs, as well as a colourful history for visitors to explore.
As well as the natural attractions of nearby Loch Lomond, the Trossachs and the watery wonders of the Flanders Moss nature reserve, the area is crammed with interesting sights.

The Falkirk Wheel, a unique rotating boat lift that can carry eight boats at a time, is also well worth a visit, and no trip to Scotland would be complete without a tasting at a whisky distillery - close to Balgair you’ll find one of the prettiest in Scotland, the Glengoyne Distillery.
This region of Scotland has an abundance of heritage properties and history to explore. Follow in the footsteps of Mary, Queen of Scots and Bonnie Prince Charlie at Callendar House in Falkirk, see the battlefield where Bobby the Bruce routed the English at the Bannockburn Heritage Centre, be uplifted by the medieval splendor of Dunblane Cathedral or explore the Trossachs and the real story of their most famous son at the Rob Roy Visitor Centre.
There’s no shortage of things to occupy the wee folk either, with activities from ten-pin bowling to horse riding on offer nearby, plus popular attractions such as the Blair Drummond Safari Park (driving and boat safaris, fairground rides, pedal boats and giant slides), or Briarlands Farm, which offers good old-fashioned country fun, including pick your own.
