Shower block and fully serviced pitches

General

  • Well maintained, peaceful park with country views from every pitch
  • Forfar less than 10 minutes' drive, or an an hour along a footpath
  • Playground and dog-walking area on site and a bar-restaurant next door

Off to Scotland? There’s more than a wee chance you’ll have a top time at Foresterseat Caravan Park, less than 10 minutes’ drive from Forfar in the Five Glens of Angus… this is a most scenic place for sitting with a beer at the end of the day while having a gander across a wild setting.

With an extended burnside dog-walking area at the park and Murton’s nature reserve across the road (about a five-minute wander away) for lakeside lopes and birdwatching – or tasting traditional cream teas at the café – it’s also a sweet spot for strolling. The park connects with Chester’s Path leading into Forfar too, meaning the hour-long trot to town goes through lush countryside via the nearby golf course (although you can also drive to town in less than 10 minutes, or bike it in about 20).

In the other direction, you can pass lochs like Rescobie and Balgavie on your way to the walled Pitmuies Gardens with their alpine meadows and marked paths or reroute yourself north west to Angus (20 minutes) for bistros and pubs serving traditional Scottish food as well as international fare.

Get grub here or head back towards the site for eats at the restaurant and bar next door; post-meal, the playground on site is likely where the kids will want to be…

Other facilities at this well-kept, purpose-built park include a modern shower, toilet and washroom block with underfloor heating to keep toes toasty on cooler Scottish mornings and evenings.

Please note

The restaurant is open between 20/05 and 01/11.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Discount cards and gift vouchers cannot be applied to bookings made via Pitchup.com.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Lovely quiet site but not ideal for children10/14/2020

    Toilet blocks were warm, spotless and very spacious.
    All pitches have water and electricity at them.
    Very peaceful with beautiful views.
    Sinclairs restaurant was lovely and the staff were very friendly.

    Disliked: 

    kids play park was too far away from the pitches. Ideal for when you are in the restaurant but not for the actual park. Also a lot of unnecessary barbed wire at waist height. Husband cut his leg on the barbed wire at the bins.

Local attractions

When it comes to culture, Scotland’s got it in spades. For a trip with a historical bent make your way to Glamis Castle (20 minutes’ drive from the park) for a guided tour of a thousand-year-old building that was the childhood home of the Queen Mother or drop by Arbroath Abbey (20 minutes) – another swish old structure to visit – to see the Declaration of Arbroath, arguably the most well-known document in Scottish history.

Go south to Dundee (30 minutes’ drive) for the 15th-century Broughty Castle Museum on the Tay estuary, a place of top views and geography exhibits, or investigate the nation’s modern heritage at The McManus Dundee's Art Gallery & Museum’s gothic revival building.

Once you’ve nodded your head thoughtfully at all the 19th-to-20th-century pieces here, stop by the Verdant Works to learn about the former jute production industry in this part of the world.

Worn out just hearing about all these educational expeditions? You can always get some fresh air in the countryside at The Glens just outside of the city instead…

Must see

  • Glamis Castle (11.4 kilometers)
  • Carnoustie (18.0 kilometers)
  • St Andrews Links (33.8 kilometers)
