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

No Television Reception
/
It is ten years since I last stayed here, I was concerned that the site has not moved on or upgraded in that time, no T/V reception being my main complaint,against the prices for the pitch.Lovely walks if you are not disabled,but a T/V reception a must for me if you are.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Very nice site
/
A beautiful site right on the waters edge with very decent facilities. Friendly staff welcomed us and gave clear instructions on everything. Will definitely come back again.
Unit Type: Tent
In need of some love
/
This has potential to be a amazing site but its a little run down facilitys are clean and in good order but the rest looks like a 80s reboot. The site does not meet the price point time to start putting some of the over the top fees back in to the site.
Unit Type: Tent
A lovely setting and very helpful staff team
/
The campsite is very picturesque and we were glad that we booked a pitch with a view of the loch. The staff team were brilliant and went above and beyond. We hadn’t brought a suitable tyre pump for our bikes, and one of the team lent us their personal one. Then, I had a fall from my bike and again the team helped and offered their personal first aid supplies.

AMAZING
/
We stayed here for the first time this weekend and we're not disappointed. We arrived late but were warmly greeted at the well stocked shop. We were duly shown where we could pitch our tent and advised of the codes needed to access the barrier and toilets. A very large site with excellent facilities- toilet and shower block are spotless and there is a separate area for dishwashing. They even have a laundry on site. Lots of lovely scenery. Well worth a visit.
Unit Type: Tent
Perfect views, welcoming staff and spotless site.
/
My first campervan experience and I could not have asked for a better site. We paid a little extra for loch side and had a perfect view, hard standing, hook up and a grassy patch with a picnic bench. The site was very busy but exceptionally well organised and spotless. All facilities were well maintained and despite a heavy thunderstorm there was no flooding or mud. Lovely walks were close by. The whole experience was topped off with very friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. My only suggestion, which would be the icing on the cake, would be a fenced in area to allow dogs to run around off lead together.

Fantastic location
/
Stayed here last week for a few nights camping with the kids. I'd booked it months previously and in the intervening period having read some of the awful site reviews i nearly cancelled it. Good job i didn't as we had a great time and i felt it only right to put in a positive review for balance. The site is really for caravans/rv but there is a dedicated section for small tents, if you wanted a powered tent pitch you go on the caravan section which is where we were. Nice and level, power works, car is parked on the gravel adjacent to where we pitched. Site facilities are good, showers really hot and were very clean, both blocks were open. The shop is open til 6pm and stocks all the usual camping accessories and fresh/frozen food, fresh croissants in the morning. There was a strong vodafone 4g signal. I spoke to several different staff thru' the week all were really friendly and keen to help, no issues at all. Location is great, right on the waterside, clean water. Unfortunately it seems to be midge paradise, there were swarms of them in the morning until about 9 and they appeared again about 8pm. Nothing the site can do about it, but be warned. If you've a caravan i guess the midges won't affect you so much, but in a tent - be warned. Other than that its a recommended site from me and I guess out of midge season it has no drawbacks at all.

Nice but cramped
/
Pitched tent early but people seem to cram down at the front to get the view of the loch. Not a lot of space for privacy and not left 3 metres between tent which is stated on the booking. Very disappointed as other sites people seem to abide by the rules and not cram in! Other than that nice enough place but has put me off coming back. Great shop and lovely helpful staff.

campsite
/
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.
Unit Type: Caravan
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.
