Built to house up to 4,000 prisoners, the Camp had a fierce reputation holding members of the Wehrmacht, Luftwaffe and Marine Corps as well as SS officers.
During the years of 1948 to 2004 it was a Ministry of Defence training camp, where many cadets stayed to train in the local area and nearby hills.
It was then bought by Comrie Development Trust in 2007 and has many uses including allotments, a catering company, a community orchard, a cheese-maker, artisan workshops and sour dough baker.
If you’re interested in visiting, a new exhibition with audio-visuals has been put together so you can delve into a recreation of PoW accommodation. With over 13 hectares and 80 Nissen huts, sports fields, an assault course and small arms firing range, and the last nuclear bunker built in the UK, it's definitely worth a look while you're here.
For more information and up to date hints and tips on what’s happening at the camp, as well as opening times, head to their Facebook page.

The camp is open to visitors from 10.30am to 4.30pm, Thursday – Sunday, April – October and donations are welcome.
