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.

Nice and quiet, not much to do.
Nice little campsite, with spectacular views and access to the Loch. Facilities were a little dated and downtrodden, mouldy walls in the shower room!! And as it was very wet, the showers were very muddy - and only serviced once a day. Not many facilities, but a nice little shop. Very small play area, but no real space for our kids to run around in. All in all, nice quiet site, felt more catered for caravans than tents. Not ideal for families if you're not using the Loch.
Unit Type: Tent
Stunning views from the site!
Everything was excellent! Clean facilities and a beautiful site. We had delays out of our control and arrived late. The gate closes at 10 pm, but the sign I saw (could have been my fault) said 11pm. We had to pick up our children who were with the rest of our party elsewhere and arrived back at 1020pm. The staff were kind enough to allow us back in. This is the only campsite that did not allow arrivals after a certain time. Had seen reviews about rude staff, but we were treated kindly. It was a trusty gorgeous well situated site. I would return.

We stayed at Cobleland campsite for 4 nights which was as nice as ever and looked after previous to cashel and the staff Myra and her husband? We’re soo friendly, helpful and couldn’t do enough for us! When we arrived at cashel the entrance was really quite scruffy and the lady in the office not very helpful at all!
Unit Type: Motorhome
Really lovely stay at the Loch Lomond Cashel site. We were given a big pitch next to the stream which runs through the site for 2 people, with 1 Camper and an awning over 4 nights. Beautiful surrounding area even despite the rain and the site whilst obviously popular was clearly ran well by the staff. The showers were always hot and the toilets were kept clean. There were a lot of lovely touches around the place like a little herb garden, and a basket with ladies goodies in the toilets. The shop was really well stocked and sold pain au chocolate for breakfast too, so even better! Particular thanks to the really helpful lady with dark hair (from Yorkshire I believe!) who dealt with us on check in - thank you again, we’ll try to make it back soon.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Enjoyed our 3 day stay
Well laid out. Site,ample space for all campers,shop selling essential items,great view/scenery.toilet blocks very clean and great hot showers 😀
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Whilst the location is wonderful the facilities were under par and expensive. There had been allot of rain prior to our visit, so the poor cleanliness condition of the toilet block could be forgiven. we checked in to a hardstanding pitch only to discover my error and lack of electric hookup...i spoke to the staff and was charged an additional £14.60 for two nights hookup on top of the £70 I'd already payed. It felt like we were being penalised for asking on the day, a total of £84.60 for a van, two kids and two adults is the most I've ever payed for a campsite!! Disappointing to say the least.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
This was such a lovely campsite with all of the amenities you need to make the experience better. Staff where welcoming and very helpful Great time had by all. Make sure you have midgie repellant with you😂😂😂💜
Unit Type: Tent
A total mess
On arriving the guy on reception was rude, all other staff were very nice. Roads around site full of holes and as it was raining day before then they were full of water, which left our caravan in a mess. All bins overflowing, we were there 3 days and each day was the same. Had fun in the water with our kayak. If your not going for water sports I would use this site.
Unit Type: Caravan
very nice place
absolutley lovely place to stay we had 3 nights and was great fun, even though it did rain throught the nights and 1 day but thats not their fault :D again pack plenty of sprays for midgies cos they can be quite annoying but again nothing the camp can do its nature. very nicely laid out for the tents i thought just choose where u want ur tent pitched and hope u get in a flat spot. has nice shower and toilet blocks few washing machines and a tumble drier, good little park for the kids and plenty of ducks walking about. would deffinatley stay again or another site in the area very scenic views and lovely walk around the hills.

Good & Bad points.
Good points, Really pretty site located on the shore of Loch Lomond. Nice shop on site. Lot`s of great walks on the door step. Ton`s of wildlife. Met some good people doing the West Highland Way. Bad points. 15% incline followed by a 12% incline road upto to site. You need a vehicle with some umff if your towing. Lot`s of midges and ticks. (we took 6 off our border collie). The site wardens can be quite abrasive, but for the most-part were helpfull. Old shower block could do with an update. Those niggles aside, I would stop again if in that area.
