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.

Being run down
The staff, location and experience was great. However, it is clear the side is being run down by management (not staff) as the site is for sale. The staff had not had a working mower for five weeks, as a result the grass was high, the site looked untidy and uncared for. Theses forest sites are of course supposed to be a bit wild. This want that. Grass was taking over some plots and some of the resident plots were really unkempt. The location is breathtaking and staff helpful but the big for sale sign at the entrance to the site explains why there is no investment.
Unit Type: Caravan
Great position
Cashel was the 1st of 4 stops on our tour. What a great start! Paid for the better pitch, (good move) Loch side pitch. Utilities are adequate. Great stop if you fancy a swim, Kayak, walk or trail run. We enjoyed it and would return!
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Was not impressed with the welcome we received we booked a tent pitch When we arrived and the wardens released we where doing the WHW we were put into the back packers part of the site There was very little info where the toilets and showers were and we were given a code for the toilets which we had to find ourselves
Unit Type: Tent
Disappointing stay
We were not impressed by this site. Although the position was good, next to the loch, the facilities and general appearance were very poor. The bins were disgusting and smelly, the back waste area was terrible , dog Poo all over the grass. The pitches were poor and the whole site very shabby and in need of repair. The Playground for kids was dirty and run down. No shop available. The Caravan and motorhome site up the road looked much better. This experience has put me off trying your other sites or recommending you to others.
Unit Type: Caravan
Need attention.
Visited for the 1st time, staff really friendly and helpful. The site itself is somewhat dated in terms of the facilities. Whilst we were given a site map for the layout of the one way traffic system there were no pitch ID numbered markers which meant that we had to move twice because we were in the wrong one, although told to just take any vacant one on that stretch. It would make things so much easier for visitors and staff if they were able to give you specifics when allocating pitches. No store provisions for sale so make sure you don't forget or run out of anything. We had to leave one night early because the entrance is locked from 10pm until 7am and we needed to be away for 5am on our planned day of departure so the locked entry/exit barrier presented a huge problem hence the early departure. 7/10 owner issue not staff issue.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Great return visit
This was our second visit to Cashel. We stayed 3 nights. Campsite is always kept clean and tidy. Toilet and shower blocks are cleaned to a high standard. Staff are friendly and helpful. Looking forward to returning.
Unit Type: Tent
Lovely Location
Used this site as our base at Loch Lomond and loved the location. Beautiful views of the loch and easy access onto the water. Busy site as was school holidays but had a nice feel and didn’t feel too busy. Facilities were a little dated but were kept very clean and well maintained. Wardens were friendly and helpful on arrival.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Very nice site
Stayed here for a couple of nights on our way further north. Good views of the loch, and a nice walk direct from the campsite. We'd stay here again
Unit Type: Motorhome
Not good
Really looking forward to going to this site, but we were very disappointed, music playing very loud all the time, boats and jet ski's going up and down front of site, blasting horns late at night, and cars doing hand brake turns on grass,!!!! Told staff about problems who were very nice but didn't really want to tackle issues as the problems were from seasonal users.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Great Location but needs updating
Booked this site as I wanted a few days by Loch Lomond. Reception Staff helpful but the condition of the site reflects the fact that it is for sale. Grounds need more attention and facilities are dated and need repairs, Also disappointed to see so many empty permanent caravans when there is such a shortage of touring sites in Scotland.
