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

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

Great wee site,clean and tidy with friendly staff 10/07/2018

    I love this site, it`s peaceful, quiet, which we like, but not too far away from the buzz of a big city.
    It is a community owned site and very well taken care of.
    I love the fact that they cater for someone disabled, as a person only able to walk short distances on crutches this place is good. The disabled toilet has a new shower in it that is more than adequate for anyones needs. The toilets are always very clean and the park itself is spotless, no litter and no dog poop. There are small boxes at the edge of the park and around the village with dog poo bags in them, which one are regularly topped up. All in all this park is one of my favourite places to spend a break. See you next year Wairds Park!

    Disliked: 

    It would be good if there was wi-fi available that you could log into, even if it was for an extra charge.

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 Stonhaven 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 (24.7 miles)
  • Carnoustie (25.5 miles)
  • Aberdeen Maritime Museum (25.7 miles)
