We could simply say our Cashel campsite sits on the shores of Loch Lomond – but it does so much more than that.
Located in an idyllic spot on the east side of Loch Lomond, Cashel campsite offers stunning views across the tranquil waters, incorporating Luss to the west and the mountains that lay either side as well as the surrounding Queen Elizabeth Forest Park.

Cashel campsite embodies all that Scotland has become synonymous with: beautifully wild, diverse landscapes, highland views, forests and of course, Lochs.
And, as an open campsite, stay at Cashel and you’ll have unrivalled access to it all.

With direct access to Loch Lomond, campers can launch their boats straight from site or rent a boat nearby, and explore the loch's many islands. 

The West Highland Way passes the entrance to the site, whilst the 974 metre tall Ben Lomond stands in wait at less than two hours away. Even more walking opportunities are offered this side of the loch with the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park and Rowardennan Forest close by. Beyond that, you’re in the Trossachs, so your next challenge is never far away.

There are many attractions close to our Cashel campsite, including Go Country adventure park. Around a 40 minute drive away, Go Country offers a huge range of outdoor activities including cliff jumping, archery, kayaking, orienteering and clay pigeon shooting to name a few.

Everyone should experience Cashel at least once, but we think you will want to come back again and again. Book your camping holiday at Cashel today and you'll see why.

Wonderful!

Stayed for 2 nights camping and couldn't have been happier with the site. Facilities very clean, shop was stocked with everyday essentials. The walk to balmaha is beautiful. Even with the rain we had a ball!

Wonderful site but watersports are very intrusive
/
This is an excellent campsite, just as it says in the brochure. The wardens are welcoming and helpful. There are brilliant walks right from the site. It is worth paying extra for a waterside pitch because the views across Loch Lomond are stunning. There are two problems though. It is very popular for watersports, and the jet skis are really noisy and intrusive. At the time we stayed it was awful on Sunday afternoon but there was not much activity on Monday and Tuesday, so overall we had good stay. It must be hell in the holidays though - unless of course you enjoy watersports yourself. The second problem is with chemical toilet disposal. This is a big site and there was only one disposal point available when we were there. There is another but it was not operational.

Idyllic shores of Loch Lomond
/
A fabulous, quiet, remote site on the shores of Loch Lomond. Facilities were fine but, as always, maintenance cycles need to be kept up (buildings, tracks, septic tanks etc). Staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. They have done well to build up a very useful shop with a good range of things for quick 'top ups' including snacks and hot drinks. We opted to pay the extra for a Lochside pitch and were lucky to find a brilliant spot but we did notice that such pitches for tourers were low in number. Consideration could be given to not allocating the majority of those locations to seasonal pitches. Whilst there were water taps around and one drain (full due to septic tank full probably) perhaps some consideration could be given to creating a proper motorhome service point (?). Overall, we had a fabulous rest, a few strolls, excellent views and the peace and quiet really did make us feel that, at Cashel (Camping in the Forest), we were in a place called 'Away'.

Superb campsite - well organised

Beautiful campsite on the shore of Loch Lomond. All very organised and the facilities were exemplary - great showers and super clean toilets. Hoping to have three pitches together having booked well ahead but two together was fine - thank you for a great stay

Great site
/
Excellent welcome on a busy sunny Saturday afternoon. Four staff on duty checking campers in. My lady was extremely friendly and helpful and showed me to our perfect loch side pitch. The site is well laid out and well run. Toilet really clean. Shop open all day. I had trouble ocassionally with the keypad on the toilet block as the numbers have worn off but you could work it out. Would definitely return. Couple of downsides - the jet skis used by some of the campers on the loch are really noisy. During our stay there were only 3 but they broke the peace and quiet constantly from Sat through to Sunday lunchtime when they left. We stayed on till 3pm on the Sunday afternoon and the contrast in noise levels was remarkable. One family had a very small yappy dog that yapped all day long - they left it tied up outside so maybe not aware how annoying it was!

Nice location right by the shore of the Loch
/
Stayed for 1 night in April. Made very welcome on arrival and was given all the information for our stay. Reception is inside a small shop that sells most necessities including caravan/motorhome spares. They also have a small bakery in the back of the shop where you can order buegettes and sausage rolls etc. The toilets and shower block was very clean inside. There is a small play park on the site and 2 Tarzan swings in the trees close by for the kids. It's very easy to launch your boats from the shores and travel across the Loch to the island opposite and admire the stunning views. The site is in an isolated location and has no club house and no pubs close by . Overall a nice site that's well looked after on the shores of the Loch.
