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

One of our. Dry favourite places.

Wonderfully friendly site, amazing views, clean facilities, some stunning walks from site, we will definitely return.
Unit Type: Caravan
Stunning!
/
Great location with amazing views. Only downside was the uncontrollable showers - not everyone like a scalding hot shower!
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
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!!
Unit Type: Camper Van
Good location for stop off on way back home from Skye.
/
Great location. Good and clean facilities. Very helpful reception/management team. Can order various breakfast items the night before. Good loch side pitches with good views across the loch. Very dog friendly. Would have liked to stayed longer but had to get home!
Unit Type: Camper Van
Lovely site, great location, helpful staff
/
I stayed here with a group of friends. We were a bit worried it would be too “rulesy” as we generally go for more wild camping sites. However the staff were lovely and the rules were entirely reasonable. The location was great and my group enjoyed a wee swim in the Loch and a stomp up Conic Hill. The midge weren’t as bad as we thought they would be. The loos were lovely and warm and clean. I would go back.
Unit Type: Tent
Lovely location - shame about the jet-skis
/
Lovely location, helpful staff, worth the small additional fee for a loch-side pitch. Very good disabled facilities. I suppose it brings in the money but there are an awful lot of unoccupied seasonal caravans mid-week at the end of the season. Noisy jet-ski users at the weekend tearing up and down and showing off close to the campsite frontage and ruining the peace and quiet of the location. A case could be made for prohibiting them being launched from the site to preserve the tranquility for the majority??
Unit Type: Caravan
Fantastic Site, Fantastic Scenery!
/
We stayed at Cashel for two nights during a brief tour of south west Scotland. I found the site on Google maps originally, the booking process was very easy, with email confirmation. We had a pitch right on the Loch side, with fantastic views and some lovely local walks. The toilet and shower block was really clean and pleasant to use, with easy access to the facilities needed for our motor home. All pitches were hard standing and pretty sure they were all electric as well. Very friendly staff in the reception and shop, with fresh made rolls and breakfast products although we didn't make use of this. An excellent base for touring and we will definitely be booking this site again.
Unit Type: Motorhome
Peaceful site with great facilities will defiantly return
/
We paid extra for a select pitch and it was well worth it. It's a beautiful site - really peaceful. The facilities are spotless.
Unit Type: Motorhome
Nice campsite
/
Lovely little campsite. Staff were really friendly and helpful, the campsite sits right next to the West Highland Way so it's gets a bit busy, I really liked that we were able to choose our own pitch for our tent within reason.
Unit Type: Tent
Top notch!
/
Situated by the beautiful Loch Lomond, the campsite has all that one could ask for - hot showers, pot-washing and laundry facilities as well a very well stocked shop. But most of all, the staff was absolutely wonderful. Hazel was so welcoming and accommodating that we almost didn't want to leave.
