Balgair Castle Holiday Park is set in a beautiful, tranquil location, and is one of the most popular parks in Stirlingshire, Central Scotland. Balgair is open from March to October, and is a family owned and run park. The park has a selection of pitches, meaning holidaymakers can bring their motorhome or tent along, depending on their preference. You can even pitch your touring caravan for the entire season if you are looking for a central ‘base camp’ from which to explore this striking region.
As well as the selection of pitches, there is also a number of luxurious holiday homes available to rent for your stay, or to buy should you fall in love with the scenery of this stunning landscape. These are perfect for larger families or holidays with guests, with a large open plan living area, fully equipped kitchens, and even central heating and double glazed windows – what more could you want?!
All of the touring pitches are spacious yet secluded, giving you a modicum of privacy and allowing you to enjoy your holiday your own way. All the pitches, well sheltered and with electric hook-ups, are close to the park’s main facilities, including the bar and games room.
Any children in your travelling party can occupy themselves happily for hours in the excellent adventure play area. The well-equipped games room features a pool table and many other facilities, while use of the heated outdoor pool is a great way to relax and kick back for the day.
Balgair Castle Club House and Restaurant are famous for their hospitality, lively entertainment, and food to suit every palate.
Balgair Castle Holiday Park is situated on the banks of the River Endrick, a salmon river that will appeal to anglers. Close to the foot of the Fells, cycle trails and interesting walks abound in the area. The historic town of Stirling is nearby, as is picturesque Trossachs, from which Loch Lomond is only a half hour drive.
An outing to Glengoyne Distillery, Stirling Castle or Wallace Monument is highly recommended.
At BalgairCastle we help you to make great holiday memories.

Lovely location, although anything but peaceful. Barking dogs, kids running around and playing football well after midnight, and cars driving around at all hours. There doesn't seem to be any security guard or night manager to patrol or monitor this. I camped with my family and was very disappointed. Some of the tents around us were camping on what looked like bogland, and others were almost on the roadside. The food in the bistro is very overpriced for families IMHO and the service is abysmal. The pool are is nice, but the kids playpark has lots of pot holes and puddles in it. Sorry, but we won't return here.: August in 2012
We enjoyed a three night break on this site in our tourer.The site itself is lovely and in a stunning location.Our children loved the outdoor pool and play park.Also walks along the river were great.Unfortunately our holiday was spoiled by an evening in the bistro where we tried to have a meal.We were told when we arrived that they were busy and the waitress would take our order in five minutes,twenty minutes later she appologised for our wait but still didnt take the order, after a further twenty minutes we were informed there was no electricity in the kitchen and therefore she could not offer us any food, she was at the time herself eating something as she informed us of this and the other waitress was still serving food to other diners.We felt humiliated and vindicated for whatever reason, as we had our two children with us we did not dispute the incident any further and left.It totally spoilt our night especially having to return to our caravan and prepare a meal at 20.45 with two very upset kids.We felt on hindsite they had no intensions of ever serving us, the reason for i have no idea.: August in 2012
websie looked beautifull and we couldnt wait to get there even though the woman on the phone said the site road need some attention and the swimming pool was out of order but to be honest the whole site needs some attention and some cleaning especially the touring area where cars were getting stuck in mud and overgrown bushes and areas needed strimming. I went for a walk around the site and there were some lovely tidy areas especially around the static caravan areas. The club on the Saturday night was friendly and entertaining but again could have done with a good clean especially the venetian blinds as these were dirty and very sticky.
overall this camp has great potential but needs some TLC but beware the road in is an experience especially when you are towing a caravan. i am not recommending this site at the present time but unfortunatley i have to tick a box below.

Thank you for posting your review. We are delighted to tell you that the park changed ownership in November 2010 and is now managed by the Wood Family. We have spent the last year renovating the pool, lounge bar and bistro and toilet and shower facilities. We have certainly given the park the TLC that it deserved and will continue to do so.
We would be delighted if you would like to re-visit the park to see the improvements we have made. Have a look at our new website www.holiday-parks.co.uk.
We hope to see you soon.
