Recently stayed at cashel caravan campsite views and location are amazing. Unfortunately the site is needing a lot of tender lovng care. Toilets in both areas are a disgrace, showers and toilets flooding, not sure during the 4 days we stayed they we ever cleaned. Pot holes everywhere, toilet waste area smelling and open to the elements. Campingg in the... More

Although we didn't stay long at Loch Lomond, we enjoyed our time. We were able to speak with some locals about the lyrics "you take the high road and I'll take the low road," and learn a little history about the loch.

Driving around the Loch is easy and fun. Quite a few stop off points, from small villages (Luss) to ferrys. Try not to be hurried around the small roads, the locals overtake if they feel you're going a tad slow, so that leaves you time to see through all the trees to the Loch. Recommend finding The Stage Coach Inn.

Firstly, the site is in a stunning location. The facilities are clean and in perfect order. A few words of warning though. If you pitch close to the washing facilities, you will find that an extractor fan runs constantly day and night which ruins the peace and quiet you would expect in such a place. Be prepared to be locked... More

Loch Lomond is amazing. It is beautiful and the views across the water are mesmerizing. Cashel Campsite on the other hand is a nightmare. Rocky bottom, unhappy personel and midge hell... The site is filled with posters hammering down the "rules" it feels like a prison moreso than a campsite. i don't recommend spending time hammering your tent pegs into... More

Beautiful place, would recommend it as a all season attraction. Sky is blue, water is clear, simply fantastic. Most highland tours would pass this route.

After all these years of traveling the globe, my spouse and I finally made it to the "Bonnie Banks." As we arrived, the sun finally broke through the gloom, and we had glorious day. A short walk took us to the top of a hill for a fantastic view of the shimmering loch. It packs a wallop of scenic splendor!... More
