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.

For a holiday that takes in the very essence of Scotland’s outdoors, visit Cobleland, book today.

Lovely week at Cobleland
Chose a pretty quiet week. Great site with good facilities and friendly staff. Good location and within walking distance of the local village. Local pubs within a mile or so.
Unit Type: Tent
Great Weekend, but . . .
We had a great time and loved the campsite. The facilities were perfect, nothing too luxurious (as befits camping) but all very clean and tidy. Staff were very friendly and activity trails for children were discreet and well-organised. The play park had its limits but overall we were very happy with all the staff had done, and with their kindness. Our only gripe, and it was a major one, was outwith the control of the staff. All the barking dogs - barking all night, fighting and growling at passers-by, even our wee frightened kids. At one point while packing up, one dog (which had whined and barked most of the two nights we were there) approached me inside my own tent and began growling threateningly. The owners didn't have much/any control over their anti-social mutt and their half-hearted apology didn't suffice for me. We'll not go back to any campsite allowing dogs, but we'd love to return to Cobleland as soon as you've banned them!

Helpful and welcoming!
Many thanks to the staff at Cobleland for making our first couple of nights in a motor home so enjoyable. We had rented the motor home and not been given a lot of information about set-up but the friendly staff helped us get organised, lent us a hose and gave us a few tips. Good, clean facilities and friendly feel to the place. Thanks again!

Great campsite
Great campsite with good facilities. Well run with lots of information about site and area. Great for dogs down the river walk from campsite. Only negative was the barrier to campsite closing at 10 pm as thought this was early when on holiday. We dined out one night and had to wait for food which meant us late on return and nearly got locked out of the site. But really enjoyed our stay and would return.

A lovely location
We loved the location and the facilities were really good. The kids loved playing in the river and nearby Aberfoyle can be reached easily by the cycle path, giving plenty of scope for eating out. Go prepared for the midges however.

Weekend stay
Visiting the area for a wedding we booked Cobleland for the weekend and how glad we were. From arriving and being greeted by friendly staff after a 5 hour drive made a very welcoming stay. Easy direction to our plot which was ample for our large van and easy manoeuvrability to get settled in place. The toilets and showers were immaculate and recycle bins and waste points were signposted and within easy reach. Although bank holiday and busy we didn't feel cramped in and unbelievably quiet at night withtheamount of families (don't worry we had 2 of our own). Beautiful setting and a good base for exploring the area. We will definitely be visiting again hopefully for longer next time. The only downside was we had to leave early as myself and my daughter were working the bank holiday otherwise we would have loved to stay an extra day!

Great location fabulous walking with dog we will be back. 😊
We found the site to be really welcoming with good access. Clean facilities well maintained and well positioned on site. There is well sign posted walks with easy access and picnic tables overlooking the river. Good walking paths with dog. Close location to Aberfoyle 1/2 hour easy walk which has great sops and garden centre, we will visit again.

Excellent Site
Apart from the weather which comes with the Scenery in Scotland we had a nice time at Cobeland. Facilities are excellent and well maintained, location perfect especially for walking dog's up the river. Staff more than helpful even providing ground screw for dogs since some idiot (me) forgot to pack ours. Only our second family camping trip, will definitely be back.
Unit Type: Tent
Loved it!
Cleveland is a beautiful site nestled in the forest. The peaceful atmosphere of the riverside walks and the tranquillity of the site itself is just what we were looking for. Facilities were clean and staff friendly.

fabulous campsite ideal for us
The campsite was wonderful, we took our dog Bessie and she had a great time exploring the woods and lochs on the door step. Aberfoyle was a lovely little town with a great pub (the Forth Inn). Callander bakery also worth a visit.
