Cobleland campsite sits on the banks of the River Forth in Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, just 13 miles from Ben Lomond. Not only is it a remarkably natural site, Cobleland is also a treasure trove of outdoor pursuits.
You'll be hard pushed to find a more beautiful setting for your camping holiday than at Cobleland campsite with its well-tended pitches and truly serene, idyllic countryside atmosphere.
Oak trees tower above the 126 pitches, whilst the River Forth flows calmly by the edge of the site. Turn your back to the river and you’ll be looking deep into Loch Ard Forest, part of the larger Queen Elizabeth Forest. Take off into the woodlands straight from the site and you'll have miles of stunning forest walks at your feet.
The picturesque nature of this site isn’t its only attraction, though. The site offers a unique position in the Trossachs National Park, close to many of the area’s most challenging attractions, beautiful views and most popular towns and cities. This makes for the impeccable combination of activity packed days and a peaceful retreat in the evening.
With its positioning in the Trossachs National park, Cobleland offers close proximity to a number of outdoor pursuits.
The magnificent Ben Lomond is just 13 miles away, with its views across Loch Lomond and the forests beyond. Its (only slightly) smaller cousins, such as Ben Venue with its two peaks and views across four lochs, are also closeby.
The less challenging Highland Boundary Fault Trail, which starts at The Lodge Forest Visitor Centre in Aberfoyle, offers fantastic views of the forest and waterfalls along its route.
Other attractions include Loch Lomond Shores, a shopping area at the end of Loch Lomond, Dumbarton Castle and outdoor activities centre, Go Country.
