With spectacular views over Loch Lomond, this Club campsite is great for relaxing.
The appeal of our Milarrochy Bay Club campsite has to be its location on the east shore of the stunning Loch Lomond in the Loch Lomond and Trossach’s National Park.
This tranquil campsite is popular with walkers, with the West Highland Way footpath right on the doorstep, while Ben Lomond, the highest mountain in the area, is north of the campsite near Rowardennan. Milarrochy Bay campsite will appeal to boaters and canoeists too with a long loch-side frontage with slipways for boat launching.
After a day’s walking or messing around on the water, this campsite is ideal for just sitting back and soaking up the breathtaking views across the Loch. This 150-pitch campsite welcomes all types of campers. Backpackers using the site can make use on the backpacker facility – a bonus in inclement weather.
South of the campsite in Balloch you can enjoy a guided hike from the Loch Lomond Shores Visitor Centre or follow the Sculpture Trail from Loch Lomond Shores. Hop on a water bus from here too and enjoy a wide range of cruises, some calling in at the Loch’s many islands, or hire a kayak, canoe or pedal boat. The amazing Sea Life Centre is here too and Balloch Castle and Country Park.
Learn about the Scottish folk hero Red MacGregor at the Rob Roy and Trossach’s Visitor Centre at Callendar. Rob Roy’s Cave and Bracklinn Falls are here too.
No trip to Scotland should be without a taste of its favourite tipple. East of Balloch at Blairquhosh the Glengoyne Distillery offers whisky tours and tastings.

Nice site with lovely views. Good facilities but overwhelmed when site full. Good access to all local amenities.

We stayed at this site with a group of adults and some children and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The site staff were extremely helpful, pleasant and flexible while the site itself was scrupulously clean and in a stunning location. The shower and toilet blocks were regularly checked and cleaned and the showers were powerful and free.
The children in our group enjoyed boating on the lake which was accessed from the site's slipway and the adults enjoyed eating in a pub about 40mins walk away.
The site shop is small and has a very limited range so you will need to bring everything with you or be prepared to drive to Drymen where there is a good shop.
We would recommend this site without hesitation to anyone who wants a quiet, lakeside location in a beautiful landscape.

First time camping at a site and really enjoyed it. Lot's of space in between pitches and facilities generally close by and clean. Beach basically on your doorstep. We also walked through to Balmaha one evening to go to the pub, took around 45-50 minutes.

The campsite is okay if nothing irregular occures. Please don't expect any help of the campsite stuffe if there is a hell of a noise during the night.
An antisocial, boozy couple startet a big fight arround 4 am and it got louder and louder. The hole campsite woke up. Arround 5 am the man attact his wife so we had to interfere. My wife tried to contact the campsite stuff without success. She kept ringing the emergency Bell several minutes. Nobody answered. She shouted at the stuff caravan, it seemed as nobody is there.
We decided to dismantel our tend. We had to wait till 7am when the barrier was oppened. We confronted the campsite stuff with the annoying event. We got lame excuses but no apology. So we won't come back .
