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.

Great wardens and beautiful site, great Loch views. Very clean facilities and with good walking from site. It’s brilliantly rustic which does mean that in heavy rain (which we had) the paths aren’t great but overall would stay here again,
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Great location - overly rustic for me
Cashel is right next to Loch Lomond. Wonderful views and access to the Loch. Fantastic walks direct from the site, many others just few miles away. Everything works at this site, there's a shop and the team were very helpful to me as I needed to stay an extra night and they squeezed me in. Be aware though the site is rustic bordering on scruffy. the pitches right next to the loch are OK but many of the others are on weed ridden hard standing or quite long grass. They did do some grass cutting but not all pitches. Facilities are knackered. Loads of black mold. You can see parts of the campsite through the rotten walls of the camp shop.
Unit Type: Caravan
Stayed for 2 nights on a Loch side pitch.campsite perfect for our needs.superb location and large, clean facilities.lovely flat walks from the campsite. Nearest pub is a 3 mile walk away along the Loch.will definitely visit again.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Fantastic friendly site
From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed by the friendly site. We arrived at just after 8pm due to a long journey through relentless rain. A pack of all the information we needed was left for us but one of the wardens soon appeared and offered help. Our pitch was on the Loch. Our view was amazing. When we woke up the following morning we were stunned by our surroundings. We enjoyed a memorable outing in our paddle boards in the morning in glorious sunshine. Although it rained pretty much nonstop for the next couple of days we throughly enjoyed our stay. The facilities were clean and the showers were warm. If you are looking from a site that is peaceful with friendly, helpful staff and in a stunningly beautiful location I would recommend Cashel.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Fabulous location but ..
Shower block needs to be cleaner and upgraded. Showers not very warm requiring constant pressing for water. However location probably one of the best, add on stunning blue skies which we enjoyed and you are in heaven
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Poor site for camping
Had to pay for 2 nights when only 1 was needed, but at least hoped to be allocated some grass to pitch upon. No such area existed in the area allocated for tents. No bench or seats available for campers to sit at, or cook at. Meanwhile across the roadway lush grass grows. You need to up your game. This was by far the poorest experience on the whole West Highland Way, including the wild site we used which had a picnic bench, and experience for which I had to pay double the going rate. If you expect grass to grow then you need to remove leaf debris, add some soil, grass seed and fertiliser. Don't just hope campers will use your site because of location. I am a C and C Club member and regular visitor to proper sites which value their customers. You clearly don't.
Unit Type: Tent
Great Site
Loved our visit at this site. Great location right on the Loch. Loads of walking in the area. Toilet block was clean. Very friendly wardens.
Unit Type: Motorhome
Good location
Good location for the activities we wanted to do such as hike Ben Lomand however the site felt very cramped and our pitch was very small. The grass was very long in places and the nearest toilet block was closed for the majority of our stay meaning we had to walk the entire length of the site. Lovely views over the loch but wouldn't rush back.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Perfect setting in the Scottish Highlands
A great campsite with pitches for tents under trees and on flat land, caravans and vans got pitches by the amazing Loch Lomond. The showers and toilets were amazing, extremely warm and great hot showers, perfect for a whole day out in the rain. Close to lots of walks and we utilised some of the West Highland Way. Close to two towns/villages with a few pubs and coffee shops, perfect if you want to get warm inside with a drink or can't be bothered cooking that night. Had good washing up facilities and picnic tables, only thing missing was a shelter for cooking, for fellow tent campers in the rain. Would recommend highly and hope to come back to the area to see more of the national park.

Amazing view of the Loch but was just ‘OK’
My main reason for marking this site 3 stars only was the welcome. I arrived within office hours and the blinds were all down and chains were across the doorway to reception but I noticed an envelope with my name on it in a rack outside so I picked it up and went back to my van assuming reception was closed. I opened it and I’m trying to work out where I might be going (was looking for a blue section on the map) when I notice a man standing on the other side of the barrier. He seemed to be looking at me but didn’t gesture to me in any way and so I just assumed he was someone on the site. I sat trying to figures things out and he just stood there. After a few minutes I decided to drive forward and go into the site, I stopped and opened my door to press the entry code and it was only then did he indicate that he was waiting for me! Why didn’t he walk to the van and introduce himself? He put the barrier up and rather impatiently told me to come through and then to “stop stop stop” when I was through before coming to the window to tell me where I should park. I felt like he was kind of smirking at me like I was stupid. I went where he said which seemed like a bit of an overspill and wasn’t ‘in the forest’ although had an amazing view of the Loch, he did say when the ‘mass exodus’ happened in the morning I could walk round and see if there were other blue pitches I wanted but it wasn’t worth moving for one night. Having stayed at the Aviemore site this trip, which was amazing, I was left a bit disappointed I’m afraid.
