Just back from a 3 night short break in a static caravan at Tummel Valley. The van was fantastic - best we've had so we were extremely lucky to get this one, as it had decking, some home comforts and we were extra lucky to have fab weather to sit out in - had we not had this and the lovely van, then perhaps we'd not be just as enthusiastic. The site is small, but its friendly, quiet and just what I'd want in the future if i wanted a quiet, romantic break with my partner - but if its a site filled with entertainment you want, then perhaps its too remote and quiet for you.
I'd go back as a couple for a chilled experience, but we went with 2 teenage girls and altho they did enjoy themselves, I think any longer and they would have been bored. We didnt eat in the restaurant as weather so good we took opportunity to eat in/bbq. The games room was stifling hot but the girls enjoyed the pool and sauna. Shop appeared well stocked, little pricey but they always are, but we always go prepared and seldom need to use the site facilities anyway.
The location is remote but we went to chill or go for drives to sight-see and we really enjoyed Queens View, Killiecrankie bridge and PItlochry.
We did go to the bar for couple of hours each night and they had a good male/female singer on each night but the karaoke night on the sunday was a bit cheesy. The staff try really hard to get the (small) crowd going though, and all staff in general were friendly, chatty and down to earth.
Overall, we had a great time and would go again for a quiet w'end if we could get the same van again. I may choose elsewhere if I wanted night-life, restaurants nearby or had teenagers to keep entertained but its in a wonderful part of the world and if you like trees, forest and lochs, its just beautiful.
