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.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

I have coming to this site for years and loved it, this has now changed.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

I have coming to this site for years and loved it, this has now changed. The site has an ineffective one way system which causes unnecessary traffic jams, when units are maneuvering into position the road is blocked with no alternative route, I cannot believe the management believe this acceptable, for the twelve years I have been at the site the freedom of movement caused No issues, the units that arrived before 1o'clock are parked in front of the office and then the one way road is blocked again!!!!!! Please learn and fix this.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

Lovely site, right on the shore of Loch Lomond, fantastic walks right from the site, the walk to Balmaha is lovely & a refreshing drink in the pub at the end of it is a well deserved! Small play area for children & facilities were always clean. Think we were extremely lucky with the lack of midges during our visit, as from speaking to other campers they can be quite bad there, so best to be prepared!

The campsite is situated in a beautiful lochside location and is easily accessible.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

The campsite is situated in a beautiful lochside location and is easily accessible. Allows acces to wonderful walks, including ascent of the southernmost Munro - Ben Lomond. Access to Glasgow by train from Balloch is easy too. The campsite facilities are getting a bit 'tired' through use and there are far too many notices and signs. Better to ask campers to take responsibility for themselves and their activities!
