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.

First of many visits
/
We absolutely loved the Cashel Campsite, beautiful location with waterside pitches. Showers and toilets all conveniently located and always clean. We kayaked on the Loch every day and there's lots of walks we have yet to explore so we'll be booking again very soon.
Unit Type: Caravan
Peaceful and clean.
/
Beautiful views and peaceful location.Well-stocked shop and clean toilet block. Would happily return.
Unit Type: Tent
Excellent campsite, good pitches. good facilities and stunning views.
/
Arrived on the Friday afternoon and were met by very friendly staff at the reception, details explained instructions for the pitches explained, find an empty one that you like and set up. Parked up on a nice pitch and coffee made, quick trip to the camp shop for a couple of things then off for a wander along the shore right next to the site in the afternoon sun couldn't be better. Had a problem with the motor home but one of the staff Stuart came to the rescue, tried to jump start our vehicle but not successful then very kindly lent us a battery charger for the next couple of days we were on site. Lovely site, friendly and very helpful staff lovely location highly recommended and a big thank you to Stuart especially. Many Thanks Bob and Rachel

In need of investment
/
Firstly the good points, the staff are friendly and extremely helpful, the location is fantastic, right on the loch shore. However, the site is in desperate need of investment, the facilities are tired, the roads within the site are potholed and uneven, there did not seem to be any "dog poo" bins. In summary, excellent location and staff let down by lack of investment.

Location, location, location!

We stayed at Cashel campsite for 5 nights and it's a lovely site. We couldn't fault it ( and we are picky!) The pitches are spacious, the showers hot and clean, the shop well stocked, lots of information about surrounding area etc., and the bakery - what a bonus, couldn't resist having a freshly baked croissant each morning! The staff were happy and helpful . Whoever tends to the wee herb garden does a super job and although we never used any, it was such a nice touch. Keep up the good work!

Nice campsite

Nice campsite. Friendly welcome and Information pack received on arrival. Shop appeared well stocked. Shower block clean. One slight negative would be perhaps the shop could have longer opening hours.

"Just as it should be"
/
Our first time on a "Camping in the Forest" and what a surprise! Took me back to the campsites I visited as a child. None of the "over manicured" grounds or "do's & dont's" associated with the "Other Lot". Wonderful setting almost every pitch has a view of the Loch & very quiet. Very helpful warden and facilities very clean. We only stayed one night as we where on a touring holiday but I would have no hesitation on booking for longer next time. We are now looking at trying out the other "Camping in the Forest" sites, something we wouldn't have done before going to Cashel. Great site, Great value and we had a Great time.

Great location, fabulous views, very friendly and helpful campsite staff.

Great location, fabulous views, very friendly and helpful campsite staff. Toilets and showers were very clean and warm inside. Will most definitely visit again when in the area.
Unit Type: Tent
Lovely site
/
Beautiful site but too many seasonal caravans, making it feel overcrowded. Wardens friendly and helpful. Recently boarded up old entrance to Ladies facilities and as they are at the back already makes for longer trek to loo . Suggest opening an entrance from other side to for campers on South side.

The views

Lovely we place, the views of the loch lovely we beeches very pretty
