    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.

    Staff were all very friendly, helpful and efficient. Went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Phoned to make sure we could find the campsite. Cafe was great, really nice coffees, warm and cosy place to be! Went to the world of wings with my two children (aged 12 and 8) which was excellent, really good fun, informative and made our trip well worth the drive! Also did archery, and this was also a great experience which we all enjoyed, with an experienced teacher who kept us safe and helped us improve our technique during the lesson! Toilets clean and handy for the camper van. Would recommend this as an excellent place to stay!

    As described, the toilets are basic (but clean) and no showers and a 2 minutes walk away. We had a group of families who were still playing music until midnight and being fairly loud talking until 2am.

    Disliked: 

    The best place to park the motorhome was the "World of Wings" car park as that's where the only toilets were. There were no showers or chemical toilet waste point. There was a grumpy old man who would not let the child play in the play area attached to "World of Wings" after 16.30

    We arrived very late but still received a very warm welcome - they called to check where we were up to and give directions if needed. Even pitches, clean toilets, free WiFi, great coffee from the cafe to set us up for the morning. Perfect and just as described..... plus, the rather unique experience (for the UK) of waking to the sound of a Kookaburra!

    Honestly not alot, poor location with noises throughout the night from the industrial estate near buy, toilet was a 5 minute walk with my young daughter in the dark and only one toilet and no showers!

    Disliked: 

    Everything we would not stay here again!

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.
We don’t have street lights on our country road so perhaps packing a torch next time would help.
We have three toilets on site about 2 min walk, one dedicated female, one dedicated male and an accessible toilet which is available to everyone.
I’m sorry you missed the facilities section which says we don’t have showers.

    Really enjoyed our stay. Nice and quiet, good area for pitching tent and The Cabin is nearby if you fancy a wee seat and a cup of tea to warm you up in bad weather. Lost a star simply because I was unable to charge by phone in the cafe. Reasons were completely understandable as the fuse blew from too many things being plugged in but my phone was completely dead and I was with a young child on my own with no other means of contact during the night. Would be very handy to have a charging point of some sort for emergencies. Other than that, very helpful staff, accessible toilets with hot water, World of Wings was good and Palacerigg Country Park is a 20 min walk.

    Disliked: 

    No where for charging phone.

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.
Look forward to you visiting again.

    Could be good for anyone with kids looking for an activity filled holiday, plenty of that. Also, good flat pitches, if the campsite was a little cramped

    Disliked: 

    No showers and only one ladies and one gents toilet, no signs leading up to the place (the signs for Blairlinn take you in the opposite direction!) and the lady at reception, although admittedly very kind when checking in, was rude afterwards. As free camping is allowed in Scotland, I feel I paid for no good reason and could have found similar accommodation for free

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.
The only conversation I had with you later was when you asked where the showers were. I replied ‘We don’t have any’. How this was construed as rude is beyond me.
I’m sorry you missed the facilities section which would have told you all you needed to know and thank you for our 4/5 for facilities.
Three toilets on site, ladies, gents and accessible.

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 (17.9 kilometres)
  • Gallery of Modern Art (19.1 kilometres)
  • Glasgow School of Art (19.4 kilometres)
