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

Great location but a couple of issues
/
Cashel campsite is in a beautiful location right next to Loch Lomond. The staff were very friendly and helpful, all the facilities were clean and to a high standard. The only issue we had was that a few of the other campers were very inconsiderate, shouting, screaming and messing about til 3am. Also the staff seem to allow the use of fireworks on the campsite, 16 days before fireworks night and were going off for over an hour, bearing in mind that this is a dog friendly campsite and we were not pre warned about this which wasn't good for our dog. These may be isolated incidences but noisy campers need to be addressed and if fireworks are allowed around this time of year it should mentioned before booking.
Unit Type: Tent
Loved it
/
From the minute I rang to check some details before booking right up to the day we arrived, I knew our stay would be fab. Dave, Debbie, Stuart and Mel were friendly, helpful and were so lovely making our wedding day even more special. Just us and our dog and the team spoilt us with lots of support. The scenery at this camp site is spectacular, the facilities are what I would expect (it is after all a camp site not a hotel. Our day could not have been more perfect and a BIG thank you goes out to the team. Hoping you al have a well deserved winter break

Potholes Galore
/
Best thing about this site is the view of the Loch. The road into and around the site is really completely covered in potholes and as it rained very heavily during our stay it was deep puddles. We had electric on our premium lochside pitch but the water was quite a distance away... Just a tap with no hose attachment fitting so water sprays everywhere. Toilet block adequate and clean but would be I think very busy for the showers in the Peak season. The chemical disposal unit left a lot to be desired! This campsite seems to have holiday Let's for a lot of its premium pitches as there were quite a few caravans but with no one actually in them. You need a code to get into the site with a barrier and also codes to access the toilet blocks and laundry room.. All different codes which is a bit of a nuisance.. The towers which hold the electric supply have a light enclosed in the top, unfortunately not many of these were working so it made for a very dark walk in the Eve/early morning to the toilet block... Not ideal due to the inclement weather of our stay. The site seems a bit run down and unloved. A small amount of basic maintenance would make a huge difference. Another word of advice is that on the road from Balmaha to the site there is a very tight uphill bend on quite a steep narrow bit of road. Not ideal for towing a caravan and could cause a problem if you were to meet another vehicle coming from opposite direction. So although the view from site is amazing and there is fabulous walking in the area we would not return to this site.

Ahhhhh.

Friendly helpful staff, there if you need them. Excellent pitch by water. Most definitely paying a visit again. Thank you.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Lovely site.
/
Cashel is situated on a beautiful section of the east coast of Loch Lomond. It is a lovely site with lochside pitches and good amenities. It is also within easy reach of Balmaha where you can access boat trips around the loch and an island ferry. My only word of caution is that access to the site from the south includes a very steep uphill bend, around Drymen, that could be testing for less powerful cars towing a caravan.

Nice campsite, well stocked shop
/
Campsite is really nice, good facilities for washing and the shop is very well stocked. Nice to be able to go down and sit by the loch. Only suggestion for improvement might be to have a bit more food in the shop to cater for vegetarians.

Couldn't be Better.
/
Firstly the weather was on our side; 22 + degrees in September. We wanted to look straight out to the Loch and the staff were very helpful and informative to help us do this. There was a couple of 'yappy dogs' so we went to the other end of the site. As our old lady lurcher likes a bit of peace and quiet, as so do we. Dog shower is a great idea. As for the potholes? It's simple; watch and go slow. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great walks and the Iron Age site is an interesting piece of history. The sunset was unbelievably spectacular. A glass of wine or two. Memories are best made through experience. Wonderful stay.

Great place

Excellent time at Cashel, Dog friendly and people friendly too. Staff were great and the facilities were good. I hope it doesn't shut down as this would be a great loss to Scotland, aw the best 👍

Such views! A great spot with spacious plots
/
A friendly greeting as we arrived and nice helpful staff. The plots were spacious, which is lovely as I do hate to feel crammed in which can happen a lot. The view over the Loch was spectacular and to be right next to the water was a joy. Our only slight problem was that some of the plots are a bit further from the electricity point than our cable was designed for. Perhaps we should invest in a longer one.

Amazing Scotland
/
We had a full week here and were sorry to leave, the Loch is amazing both to look at and to sail on. It can change at the drop of a hat from sunny and calm to wild and windy , oh yes and wet !! That's Scotland , having said that we wore no coats and had no problem with midges . We would love to return but it is along way from home . Who knows 1 day .... the staff were lovely and very helpfull the views amazing and facilities all good too .
