Stayed here for one night as part of a short expedition on the West Highland Way. At the end of a rather forced afternoon march it was welcome to turn off the country road (along which cars and lorries periodically hurtle at terrifying speed) into the little field that the farmhouse owner has set aside for camping. There is clean... More

Excellent value for money! The facilities are basic but adequate for what we were looking for for £5pp. Make sure to take your own toilet roll and check your pitch for dog poo before you commit, we had to change locations twice. There is a taxi service that will take you into Drymen for dinner if you don't fancy walking.

Stopped here as my first night-time stop on the West Highland Way, admittedly with some trepidation after reading some of the reviews here. First the good point - it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be! The facilities (toilets etc) were reasonably clean and functioning and I managed to find a reasonably flat pitch. The bad...

Decent enough first stop - though we were lucky with bright weather - on the WHW. We arrived early and, yep, the signage is misleading - you're told not to disturb the farmhouse or cottage, though sort of difficult in our case as we were expecting to pick up our larger rucksacks. As it was, the bags were dropped in... More

This was the worst place I have stayed on my WHW trip. The campsite was sloping, riddled with stones and roots and a mile and a half from Drymen. The shower block/kitchen was verminous, crusted here and there with pigeon droppings and the proprietor offhand and unhelpful. All in all, an unpleasant first night on the WHW.

This is a basic but very functional campsite for walkers doing the WHW, For £5 a night what else do people expect? In our experience this is a well serviced site, the owner was up before 6 in the morning cleaning the toilets, showers and tidying the communal area before the campers got out of their tent! We are a... More

People have to understand, that this campsite is not a holiday park, and facilities available will be a little behind after those - that you can find at the campsites for 30pounds per night. For us (a young couple) - a stay was really perfect. Plenty of birds singing, deers going across the field behind the fence and sound of... More

I was a little concerned about stopping here after reading reviews, had little choice as the next campsite is otherside of Balmaha. I have idea why so many complain. The campsite is located on the way, stunning views and lush grass. The facilities are basic but showers are hot and toilets work. For £5.00 I am more than a happy... More

First of all I'll start by stating it was only £5 to camp for the night. However the site was in a poor state, the grass was badly needing cut, there was not a level pitch on site, the food prep area was filthy, in an old open barn complete with nesting birds, the showers were disgusting, the shower curtain...
