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

We booked for 2 nights and extended our stay, which was no problem. Balmaha is just over a mile away, we cycled with 2 children (12 & 10 years old) on the road, it is a quiet road, however, may be busier in Summer, we visited The Oak Tree pub for dinner (dogs are welcomed in beer garden but not inside) and came back on the footpath (along the loch side) this is a very rough path in parts, my kids loved the off roading!! There are several little beaches that can be accessed close to the site (some with parking) that are great for dogs. We also brought our kayak to explore the loch, however some islands are private and cannot be accessed. This is a great base for The West Highland Way, it passes the site entrance.

I would not recommend this site to people who have limited transport or want to be near shops.

I would not recommend this site to people who have limited transport or want to be near shops. There is one small shop in Balmaha but it is s bit on the pricey side so make sure you take supplies with you. I would just like to thank the lovely site wardens who lent me there chairs.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

Landing stage cleats requested for temporary mooring, to reduce the trip hazard of lines across the staging. Change rule so that temporary mooring is permitted on the "back" of landing stage. Infill the pothole rut at the top of the slipway, so as to give a smoother run. Not a problem for me but a little dredging at the bottom of the slipway would enable deeper draught boats to be more readily launched.
