Cashel Campsite, Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, Scotland

There can be no more captivating place than Loch Lomond in the early morning; majestic mountains sweeping down to the gentle lake shore, surrounded by the perfection of the Trossachs National Park. This is a very special place that touches the hearts of all who visit.

Cashel is an open campsite located right on the shores of the famous Loch Lomond with unrivalled views of the peaceful loch and lush surroundings of the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park. The campsite provides ultimate seclusion, and is very popular with campers looking for peace and harmony, wrapped up in nature’s best.

The woods, mountains, lochs and coasts of this area are rich in wildlife and if you are lucky, you may spot one of the many native animals from the comfort of your tent including otters, osprey, water vole, deer, red squirrel or the visually and vocally impressive capercaillie.

There are plenty of activities available at the campsite and campers can launch their boats directly from the site, or rent a boat nearby, to explore the many islands located the length and breadth of the famous waterway. In addition, there are numerous enchanting footpaths in and around the site, with the West Highland Way passing the entrance. For the more adventurous, the distinctive mountain of Ben Lomond is nearby providing endless exploration for the more active camper. There is also a small children’s playground for our younger campers.

Balmaha is just three miles away and offers a traditional village pub as well as a boat yard which has boats for hire as well as fishing trips and cruises available. Nearby attractions include Go Ape! and Loch Lomond Shores at Balloch, which has its own Sealife Centre.

There is a shop on site which offers takeaway coffee and provides essentials for campers. Dogs are welcome on this site and there are toilet and shower blocks.

Please note during the summer months there are midges on this campsite, click here for more information.
