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.

Had a nice stay got a site looking on to the loch but the down side is the road to the Cashel camp site is a disgrace (you need to lobby your MP to push for the council to improve the very busy road) and the road in the site needs to be resurfaced and the toilet/shower blocks need a face lift.

Amazing
/
We had a great time here. Arriving we were welcomed in reception which is in the well stocked shop. After being offered several pitches we found a perfect spot near the water. To then realise we had forgotten tent pegs we were releived to find some in the sites shop. I would definitely recommend staying here, we pre ordered a hot breakfast with croissants and toast which was so good. The toilets and showers were really clean. Only thing is that as expected in this area there are a lot of midges.
Unit Type: Tent
great

Scotland visit
/
Was sceptical about this site after reading lots of reviews some gd some not .when we arrived was greeted by lady who explained every thing about site we chose our pitch by the loch which had stunning views if you have a nice day the sunsets are amazing. As for site it's needs a gd refit toilet blocks especially no vanity lights work some hot water taps only a dribble of water showers are set at a temperature which was lovely and warm but small cubicle not much room to move around in shower .mop and water dirty . Laundrette lost money in iron machine and new ironing board needed . Well stocked shop but never used rolls and croissants to order to cook on site. BEWARE MOSQUITOES ARE BAD one morning the caravan and awning were smoothed that's not a lie Most loch side pitches have picnic tables NO PARKING ON GRASS road leading up from dryman abit narrow in places and one very steep hill and sharpe corner. Don't think I will return other than for views
Unit Type: Caravan
Attention to detail missing
/
Great site for views over Loch Lomond BUT attention to detail and general maintenance missing - for example when was the grass cut? Chemical disposal facility - flaky paint.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Nice and peaceful with fantastic views.
/
Nothing really bad to say about the place. It could be doing with a little TLC though. Children's play park consisted of a very small climbing frame with a slide attached. There was a swing frame but no swings attached. Small toilet/shower/washing area could be doing with a deep clean and some anti mould spray. Staff not overly friendly, which suited us, but did feel like an inconvenience sometimes when using the on site shop. Shop was well stocked though and prices were reasonable. Only thing we could not buy at the store which we needed was bags of ice, which meant a 30 mile round trip each day. Freshly baked bread and pastries available from on site shop which was handy. Great views and very quiet after 10pm. Glad we left on the Monday though as a large group of 20-30 sea cadets pitched up directly next to us. Don't know if the quite nights would have continued after that.

Much better than reviews had said
/
We were apprehensive about the weekend booked here after reading the mixed reviews - but had a great time. Toilets were very clean and plenty of them. Well stocked shop. Ground was hard so take a mallet and midges aplenty so glad of the wind. Location and site super, interesting mix of nationalities so good people watching!
Unit Type: Tent
Good stay overall, but poor road conditions
/
We enjoyed our stay at the loch Lomond site. Nice and peaceful, toilets good, shop had a wide range of goods for sale and opening hours were great. One problem though: the roads around the campsite are awful. Too many potholes. Very difficult to drive around, especially when towing a caravan. I don't think it would be difficult to fill them in.
Unit Type: Caravan
Great place
/
Lovely campsites with great views over Loch Lomond. Friendly staff and a quite place to relax and unwind away from home life or water sports as other happy campers were doing. Would recommend
