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).

We were on a tour of Scotland covering
eight sites. This was the poorest site we visited
unhelpful wardens, unable to put your
awning up as the pitch was full of holes
which were full of water. We now wished we
had booked only 1 night, will not be visiting
again. lucky our next 6 sites made up for our

We have stayed here for a number of years now and at varying times throughout the season. The staff here this year were very friendly and went out if their way to help me. They were very welcoming and approachable. I gave a young family and the children love it here, they would be happy just playing in the campsite but you can take the kayaks out on the loch, or there are many lovely walks close by. There is a 30 min walk (with kids) to Balmaha. Balloch is a short drive and there is lots to do here. The amenities at the site are good and the toilet block us always kept to a high standard. I would highly recommend this site.

Very welcoming, helpful warden - hard to reconcile with previous negative reviews. We can all only speak as we find, but perhaps should bear in mind: 1) we don't know the circumstances of any clashes; 2) it is widely recognised in the leisure industry that heightened emotions significantly increase the likelihood of posting a negative review over a positive one.
This site has lovely walks through to Balmaha and its facilities, just over a mile away. Little traffic noise, as the road is ultimately a dead-end. Cashel Site, a mile further along the lochside, has more open hill-views, but is less well-maintained.

screamed at before we had even registered
unable to use the loos as all were closed
at the same time every time we left the camper
the manager was there to check our dog was on
lead so we just got up and left the sight during the day
what a waste we had taken kayaks all the way from kent
to be used once we will never return to this site
