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.

Whilst the location is wonderful the facilities were under par and expensive. There had been allot of rain prior to our visit, so the poor cleanliness condition of the toilet block could be forgiven. we checked in to a hardstanding pitch only to discover my error and lack of electric hookup...i spoke to the staff and was charged an additional £14.60 for two nights hookup on top of the £70 I'd already payed. It felt like we were being penalised for asking on the day, a total of £84.60 for a van, two kids and two adults is the most I've ever payed for a campsite!! Disappointing to say the least.

Excellent

This was such a lovely campsite with all of the amenities you need to make the experience better. Staff where welcoming and very helpful Great time had by all. Make sure you have midgie repellant with you😂😂😂💜
Unit Type: Tent
A total mess
/
On arriving the guy on reception was rude, all other staff were very nice. Roads around site full of holes and as it was raining day before then they were full of water, which left our caravan in a mess. All bins overflowing, we were there 3 days and each day was the same. Had fun in the water with our kayak. If your not going for water sports I would use this site.

very nice place
/
absolutley lovely place to stay we had 3 nights and was great fun, even though it did rain throught the nights and 1 day but thats not their fault :D again pack plenty of sprays for midgies cos they can be quite annoying but again nothing the camp can do its nature. very nicely laid out for the tents i thought just choose where u want ur tent pitched and hope u get in a flat spot. has nice shower and toilet blocks few washing machines and a tumble drier, good little park for the kids and plenty of ducks walking about. would deffinatley stay again or another site in the area very scenic views and lovely walk around the hills.

Good & Bad points.
/
Good points, Really pretty site located on the shore of Loch Lomond. Nice shop on site. Lot`s of great walks on the door step. Ton`s of wildlife. Met some good people doing the West Highland Way. Bad points. 15% incline followed by a 12% incline road upto to site. You need a vehicle with some umff if your towing. Lot`s of midges and ticks. (we took 6 off our border collie). The site wardens can be quite abrasive, but for the most-part were helpfull. Old shower block could do with an update. Those niggles aside, I would stop again if in that area.

We stayed here for 5 nights and had a great time. The loch was just at the bottom of the campsite

Unhelpful staff, noisy, shabby.
/
The only saving grace for this site was it’s location on the side of the loch otherwise I’d avoid it all costs. The staff, well one in particular was extremely unhelpful and deliberately misleading - we asked for the nearest pub/restaurant and she said 20 mins drive or 2.5 hours walk in either direction when there was a very nice pub and restaurant only 2.6 miles and 5 mins in one direction and another 4.0 miles in the other. Why be so misleading? Then when we were about to leave the battery was flat on our van, the same lady was in reception when we asked for some help with jumpleads, she said they had them but the guy who did it was out on site and she couldn’t contact him I asked if I should come back a bit later and she’s said no as he was very busy. How unhelpful,is that? I said dI would sort it myself so 4 hours later when the breakdown van arrive we were off after a two minute jump start. A wild party on the shores of the loch took place on the Friday night with a group of drunken local Scottish youths(you could tell by their accent) This went on till 1am and it appears the only people on the whole site who didn’t hear them were the wardens. Then on the Saturday all you could hear were speedboats, jet skis and water skiers racing up and down the loch till sundown, like being on a race track. The site is very shabby with all the gravel roads around the site deeply potholed and which fill up with muddy water when it rains. The toilet blocks are desperately in need of some TLC bithnoutside and in. Won’t be back!

At first booking we were confused about this being a Caravan & Camping Club site. It is an "affiliated" site apparently, it makes sense now. This is the worst site we've been on, poor drainage meant swampy grass, luckily we were on hardstanding with a mud border complete with splintered wood edging. We were treated to first of all dusty conditions due to the weather and lack of road surface then a bit of rain turned the site into a muckfest complete with various sized of potholes to cover your vehicle and caravan in muddy water. The potholes, I guess, were there to slow drivers down because in the stretches of "road" that were flat there was no regard of speed awareness on site, I even shouted at someone to slow down. Time off work is precious and spending hard earned money on this type of holiday is not on. If I could post pictures of the "road" I would.

Stayed at cashel. Good weather, company, and refreshments. Views stunning. Site well presented. Had a brilliant week. Walking, kayaking, and cycling. Will dofinatley go back. My only criticm is to use the mirrors in the shower block you have to be 4ft tall. No good for 6 footers.
