Spectacular views from the park

General

  • Community-owned and family-friendly holiday park
  • Within easy reach of Montrose, Stonehaven and a well-stocked shop
  • Bowling, 18-hole putting course, tennis and playground

Where would you like to stay while up Angus way? At the fab family-friendly site of Wairds Park, that's where: this is a Scottish stunner.

Community owned and run, friendly, acclaimed and spotless Wairds is by the beach in the fishing village of Johnshaven, 15 minutes' drive from Montrose and Stonehaven, and with stacks to do on site among cracking coastal views. Around the region, Dunnotar Castle, Crawton and other highlights of the North East Coastal Trail are all close to hand.

For days on site (much recommended: have you seen those views?), Wairds has tennis, bowling and an 18-hole putting course all available for an extra charge, and a playground to entertain the kids while grownups have a more sedate time soaking up the views. Free wifi is available at reception.

Pitches are well spaced out and on grass, within easy reach of the park's showers, toilets, disabled toilet and laundry room. There's a food prep area for guests' use too, and a convenience store (acclaimed as excellent by the Wairds team) open seven days a week in the local village.

Elsewhere for eats and drinks, two hotels are within simple strolling distance: the Ship, with a traditional lounge bar, and the Anchor, serving fresh homemade meals specialising in local seafood and seasonal dishes.

Please note

Facilities/activities including tennis, golf, bowling are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

Single-sex bookings of 3 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

    What a gem of a site this is. Fabulous staff, friendly and accommodating. We get a great signal on our satellite tv receiver. Close to the pub (less than 10 mins walk) where the food is also brilliant. The facilities are spotless. Mini golf is great and the play park for the children is also great. All in all, this us a wonderful community run site.

    Very helpful, great near the sea, good shower block, power and water easily available. Probably the best site we have stayed at.

    Site fees help fund facilities for the community and the village is also nice with a good general store, coffee shop and pub which does nice meals with local seafood. The harbour and shore is very beautiful

Excellent site, grass pitches, fully serviced, well looked after.08/24/2019

    This is a lovely site, where we have stayed many times.The staff are friendly and do a great job of meeting everyone's needs. The disabled toilet/shower had plenty of room for a wheelchair user and although quite an old building, has been freshened up for the season and was always clean.
    The site itself is very clean and well looked after, and although at the sea shore, there is none of the typical invasion of seagulls around, that often blight other sites at the bin area. It's a peaceful site, somewhere to go to relax, with the dogs, but it's family friendly with the tennis courts, putting green and play park, there are things to occupy anyone with children. it's close enough to Montrose for grocery shopping, the next village has an excellent fish restaurant & takeaway, this closes at 8pm. It's within driving distance to Aberdeen & Dundee, if you want a rainy day outing to a shopping centre.

    Disliked: 

    WiFi would be a plus, if it was available, but it's not a necessity.

Local attractions

Johnshaven is a small and scenic traditional Angus fishing village, with a marina, harbour and pebbly beach, five minutes' drive from the sandy beach of St Cyrus. It's 20 minutes' drive from here to Montrose to the south and Stonehaven to the north.

The village is also close to the North East Coastal Trail, the scenic stretch of Scottish coastline from St Cyrus to Forres just over 100 miles away. Its first section runs from St Cyrus to Stonehaven and further along the coast to Aberdeen, 30 miles or about 45 minutes' drive from Wairds Park; on arrival, have a day in the city or make an Aberdeen pitstop before driving the 40 miles or so to Fraserburgh via Peterhead.

Some top heritage sightseeing is along the coastal trail too: within 20 minutes' drive of Waird Park are spectacular Dunnotar Castle, the ruined medieval fortress on a headland surrounded by cliffs; 14th-century Fetteresso Castle, rebuilt as a manor house in the 18th century, and Crawton, the abandoned fishing village where ruins of houses and the village school still remain.

Driving in the other direction, it's 40 minutes from Wairds to Angus's biggest town Arbroath, home to  Kerr's Miniature Railway (the oldest in Scotland), Arbroath Abbey, the summer Seafest, and the swish Harbour Visitor Centre by the town quay.

Must see

  • Duthie Park Winter Gardens (39.7 kilometers)
  • Carnoustie (41.0 kilometers)
  • Aberdeen Maritime Museum (41.4 kilometers)
