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.

Nice campsite on the loch toilets spotless, and the wardens are most helpful, couldn’t do enough for you , will definitely be back 👍only 4 stars because i like a firepit , but I understand fire safety regulations,,
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
This was a OK site
/
The staff were very friendly and approachable, The reason I only gave 3 stars is because the showers were not as clean as they could be, the fact is that when I was taking a shower the person in the next shower their water was running into my cubicle as the bottom of the board did not go to the bottom. The grass could be tidied up also the pitches were tired looking, with a little TLC this could be a beutiful site.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Great location
/
With direct access to the shores of Loch Lomond this is a good campsite for those enjoy water related past times. Facilities are good, if a little dated and we were made to feel welcome by the site wardens. This was a one night stop for us on our way back home but we would consider this site again in the future.

Tired out site
/
Lovely welcome from helpful staff, who were also very helpful with directions to local paths, and places to exercise our dog. Also when there was a problem with our electric pillar, quickly sorted. Good people. Site itself past its prime. Facilities, while cleaned and looked after as well as could be expected, we’re run down and shabby. Lack of info leaflets at ‘shop’ which didn’t have anything in stock either. Looked generally as if the place was preparing to close down, permanently. Shame, because the Loch side pitches could be idyllic.

Not up to the usual high club standard
/
Lovely site location good access to Loch Lomond. Site was unkept grass not cut weeds over grown on hard standing pitches. People who had seasonal pitches where cutting there own grass around the pitches. Two of the lights over the sinks did not work . After speaking to a warden it was explained that the grass cutter had been broken for a number of weeks and the manager had reported this on numerus occasions. After further conversations I found out that the Forestry Commission where not renewing the lease and that the staff where only running the site until the end of the season thus the club where unwilling to invest money. The sight staff where very helpful and friendly but I did feel that their hands where tied. We will be visiting the area again but will look to book Milarrochy club site as on walking passed looked the high standard the club sets

One night stopover on journey.

Very friendly, simple booking in procedure on arrival, facilities pointed out, find your own pitch etc. (just what one wants at the end of a 12 hour journey). Toilets etc all good. Keep it up. Thanks.

Disheartened
/
We've stayed at Cashel many times since 2011 and always thoroughly enjoyed it, however this time we were a little disappointed. The gentleman who manages the site couldn't be nicer. Very courteous and maintains excellent standards. The toilets, showers and pot wash were always spotless. The site could do with upgrading, especially as the pitch fees are on the higher side. There are potholes throughout the site which is surprising given site closure throughout 2020 and as our visit was fairly early in the 2022 season. Also one of the water taps was out of order. Most disheartening was the number of seasonal pitches who now occupy the select pitches next to the water's edge. Previously, most seasonal pitches were located in rows at the rear but during our visit the majority of pitches at the front were occupied by empty seasonal caravans with large awnings. Also, where is the shop? Given the rural location it is always handy to be able to buy fresh milk and camping supplies if needed, or order a roll/pastry for a treat yet the shelves were empty/removed. Would have been handy to know this before arriving. Once again, the gentleman currently managing the site is doing a grand job. We enjoy coming to Cashel however I do hope more attention is paid to site maintenance and the needs of guests, whoever takes over and runs Cashel from 2023.
