No streetlights to blur your vision at rurally set Blairlinn Campsite near Luggiebank village in Lanarkshire as all you'll see of an evening is the light of the moon and the stars. But it's only about 11 miles from the city lights of Glasgow, to which we say: pints in Sauchiehall Street...?
You might hoot with pleasure on finding a birds of prey centre at the site too...

Basic.....but as described
From the manager...
I myself stay on site and was completely unaware of all this noise. Most guests comment on how peaceful their stay with us is.
From the manager...
Thank you for you comments. I understand you may have had an issue with not being able to charging your phone. I carry a spare battery pack at all times for this very reason and it has been very useful.
From the manager...
Our campsite can accommodate 15 tent pitches. On your date we had 9. We do not allocate a particular area, our guests are free to pitch where they like (within reason) either gather their group together or stay isolated. Space is never an issue.

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.
