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. 

Facilities available at Cashel Campsite, Loch Lomond

Excellent
/
Lovely quiet campsite, this was our first time away with our pup and 2 children, stunning views all around and lots of lovely walks nearby, the camp shop had all the basic necessities and freshly baked goods on demand, the shower/toilet facilities were the best we have come across on our travels. Staff were very knowledgable on the local area and dog friendly restaurants nearby, would highly recommend a visit to this site, we will be back in the future 😁

Gorgeous location

Excellent views. Lovely staff. Overall very welcoming and gorgeous location. We will be back there soon. Loved it.

Exceptional site, best of our trip
/
This site really set itself apart from the very moment we arrived. The helpful lady in reception took time to show us the pitch we had on the map and then strolled round later to make sure we'd got set up okay, the little shop was well stocked with essentials, and the toilet/shower facilities were fantastic. Pitches, roads, the whole site was clean and tidy, and the location was superb literally right against the Loch. If you're going out to eat in the evening do take your car though - we decided to stroll down the road to the pub for dinner and discovered it was four and a half miles each way!

Much improved
/
As per the title - much improved over a seriously poor experience last year. The staff we met were friendly and helpful, and the site is much tidier this year. Although a few pot holes need filling. Toilets and showers were fine, although there was much apology that the heating in the block we were using wasn't working. The location is splendid, being right on the Loch shore, and prices are reasonable. I can't give 5 stars (potholes and heating) but I most certainly wasn't giving 4 last year. Well done!

Wow!

I stayed at this little haven for 5 nights. It’s a very well maintained site with amazing views of Loch Lomand no matter where you pitched. The weather was quite stormy the first night with winds over 50 miles an hour. The lovely managers ensured everyone was okay and helped tents by providing storm straps and helping to secure them. What a lovely thing to do. I would highly recommend a stay here. I loved every minute of it and really didn’t want to leave.

Great escape !

Fantastic location run by a lovely couple Dave and Debbie who couldn’t do enough for you. Clean warm shower block with plenty of hot water. A trip to see Red kites being fed near Doune was well worth seeing (30mins away)

At one with nature......

Beautiful camp site perfect views for everyone. Staff very friendly, toilets and showers very clean and warm. Not for the gadget family as no digital signal for tv but this was perfect for me and my husband, this little stay took us right back to nature 😊 birds tweeting, sun rise and sun sets behind the mountains, conversation and perfect walks around Cashel and along the great highland way. Will definitely visit again!!
