About

Peaceful forest campsite above Loch Rannoch in Highland Perthshire

If you are looking for a campsite that offers nightly entertainment, bars and restaurants then this is not the place for you. Kilvrecht Campsite is camping and caravanning on a basic level with a real back-to-nature feel. What is in abundance is the fresh air, wildlife and peace and quiet amongst a woodland setting. If you want to relax in beautiful surroundings, listen to the sound of birds singing around your tent, then Kilvrecht is the place for you.

Camping areas

We have a special place for everyone at Kilvrecht, and you are welcome to pitch your tent or park your van anywhere in our grass fields. Our fields can get soggy during periods of rain and even when its dry there are places to avoid when choosing your pitch. On arrival you are encouraged to walk over your chosen pitch and satisfy yourself that the ground conditions are suitable for your vehicle. Avoid driving down into low lying areas after heavy rain. When on site our warden will be more than happy to help you find the best spot. We have two hardstanding touring pitches which can be booked individually.

Pets are welcome on all areas, however please ensure they are kept under close control at all times.

The Central Field

This is the largest of all camping areas at Kilvrecht. This attractive open grassy area has the benefit of being level with good road access to pitches via a circular access track. Located to the west side are the toilet block, washing area and chemical disposal point. It also contains our two individually bookable surfaced pitches ideal for larger motorhomes. Taps and grey water disposal points are located around the perimeter of the area.

The Riverside Field

Located alongside the Allt na Bogair burn and is accessed down a sloping gravel track to the west of the Central Field. If you like to fall asleep to the sound of tumbling water then this is the site for you, but be aware this sheltered riverside location is also a favourite home for our Scottish midge.

The Back Fields

These are a series of mowed spaces hidden amongst the trees to the south of the Central area which offer a more intimate and sheltered camping experience. Accessed via a gravel track which weaves through the woodlands, you can choose your spot either at roadside or explore on foot to find a more private glade to pitch in. At the end of this area are our three stonewalled tent shelters which would be an ideal choice for campers during stormy weather. Taps and grey water disposal points are located within this area.

The Lower Field

Situated to the north of the Central Area and comprising gently sloping grassland to a lower level area. This area can be difficult to access with heavier vehicles during or after periods of wet weather. As such it is most suitable for tents.
