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.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

Perfectly located on the edge of Loch Lomond, this site is down a dead-end track away from traffic. It is on the route of the West Highland Way so expect lots of keen hikers but also some excellent walking within spitting distance. Access to the lake is perfect for swimming, canoes, windsurfers and larger craft. Despite the location, the site was relatively low on midges- but not midge free so don't forget the repellant! In the National Park, there's loads of wildlife to see and rangers nearby to ask questions. Stay on the impeccable site and enjoy the peace, or stroll to Balmaha for a good pub and shop.

To be right by the Loch was a perfect spot with wonderful views.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

To be right by the Loch was a perfect spot with wonderful views. Good flat pitch and plenty to do in the area if you like walking cycling and messing about in the water. One particularly unfriendly warden, the first I've come across in 3 years of membership - maybe she was just having a bad week!!! Our first night we had to suffer some pretty loud music from some rather inconsiderate neighbours who felt we should all listen to their choice of music until nearly midnight, but guess that could happen on any site. Would certainly go back due to the beautiful location.

Second stay.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

Second stay. First time we left after 4 hours due to torrential wind and rain and our pitch being on a slope suitable for skiing. Tried to put us on the same slope again even though there were plenty of flat pitches after telling us there weren't. Maybe because we only booked two nights. Also one staff member getting a bit anal about us not producing a current membership card despite the booking coming through the website. Perhaps that's why he punished us with a sloping pitch. Only joking. Survived the two nights this time and we apologise for bringing the rain with us after two weeks of glorious sunshine. Winging aside it is a great location with good clean facilities. As long as you obey the rules at all times or run the risk of being put on the naughty step. Two great distilleries within easy reach (hic) and Glasgow centre not too far (Yeah we went to the games).
