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.

super weekend
our Dunbar Rowing club had a super weekend. We visited EVERY island (23) in Loch Lomond over 3 days. Late evening on the beach under a full moon.

Idyllic spot
Idyllic spot. Staff lovely. Facilities good Recommend. As wild as camping we are prepared to go!!!
Unit Type: Camper Van
Needs attention
The situation of the site is fabulousl but needs some tender loving care!! One of the chemical waste points was out of order , the grass throughout the site was in desperate need of cutting , looked just like a farmers field ready for harvesting There was no shop , no gas which is advertised in the site info , this was very disappointing. The toilet blocks were cleaned daily but needed more of a deep clean . Didn't understand why we needed to use a code to enter toilet blocks , never experienced this before . The staff on the site were very good and very friendly.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Great Management and Setting but Needs Modernisation and Investment.
All in all, we stayed here with a party of more than 20. The Camp management, particularly Tony & Myra, worked very hard to ensure all went smoothly and everyone enjoyed the rather wonderful setting. One would have to comment on the lack of capital investment in the site which needs to be addressed if Cashel is to stay up there with the best.
Unit Type: Tent
Wardens very helpful ..site not impressed
Not what l expected after visiting Luss on the opposite side to Loch Lomond ..the site looks tired and shabby . long grass around our unit , showers dirty and shabby.. I’m going to give it 1 star and that is for the wardens being so helpful . Would l return to this site..a definite NO We where thinking about visiting the New Forest we now have had second thoughts if all your campsites are like Cashel .
Unit Type: Motorhome
Lovely site
Beautiful setting at side of the loch. Flat, generous sized pitch. Well maintained and clean site
Unit Type: Caravan
Lovely location but......
Beautiful location next to Loch Lomond but a rather tired, neglected feel to the site. The Reception was more closed than open, and while the wardens were very friendly, there was virtually no local information/leaflets/walks etc and there were no essential provisions to buy at all. The Reception/shop was all a bit of a mess and looked like they were closing down. The grounds were clean but the grass was long and the hardstandings were half covered in grass, weeds etc. All this site needs is a little bit of money poured into it and a bit of TLC - it could be great. But we won't be coming back, nor would we recommend it to others sadly.
Unit Type: Motorhome
Great campsite
We stayed here one night. Friendly owners, clean, tidy & very picturesque. Easy to pitch, space just near the Loch where there were lots of bluebells. We were near the toilet block so it was very handy. Only minor complaint is the shower water kept going off every 10seconds so you had to keep pushing it….as I said that’s minor. A bit of a windy & bumpy road to get here but advantage was it is a lovely quiet area. Beautiful views.
Unit Type: Motorhome
A lovely place
We had such a good moment for 1 night in the camping. A campsite rooted in nature, a site right in front of Loch Lomond, a perfect view to wake up in the morning. The staff is charming and all facilities are included for motorhomes.
Unit Type: Motorhome
Great location
Great location but the one road in is very steep and tight in places. The site itself was right on the shore of the loch. The toilet & showers were very clean and tidy. My only negative point is the grass and pitches could do with being tidied up.
