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.

There is a lot to do within a 30-mike radius of the site in both towns and country parks...

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

There is a lot to do within a 30-mike radius of the site in both towns and country parks (Forestry Commission controlled). The site is on the West Highland route and available for a stroll or more ambitious distance walks. The loch provides water views and sports access points. The site is well laid out and maintained. We will certainly go there again and tell our friends, we'll bore them with our photographs until they do!

I stayed at this site on the 9th of May.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

I stayed at this site on the 9th of May. Three of us arrived at 8:45 without booking are were welcomed by a very friendly gentlemen who seeing that we had a hard day's walking helped us with us bags and showed us to our pitch. The site is beautiful, well kept and It is ideal for all ages. Unfortunately it poured down the whole night we were there and we had a hole in one of the tents, in the morning battered from the previous days walking, tired and soaking the staff could not be more friendly and helpful. We were looking to get a taxi to Drymen in which they phoned and arranged for us. They also made us coffee while we waited. I was blown away by there hospitality and will definitely be back. Great place .

This is a lovely lakeside site with walks along the loch and up into the hills from the site.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

This is a lovely lakeside site with walks along the loch and up into the hills from the site. It is possible to walk by the loch to Balmaha, about 1.5 miles, where there is a pub, coffee shop and village shop. Also you can catch the ferry across the loch from here and the bus. The staff are very friendly and we received a very warm welcome on a miserable wet day. They are also hard working and are constantly out doing jobs on the site. The facilities were very clean and well maintained. I have to agree with previous comments about access. The entrance to the site to book in at reception is very steep and very short, so if there are several units waiting to book in at once, there will be a queue that blocks the road outside. It would be much better to put the barrier further into the site to keep queueing units off the road. Similarly with the entrance and exit for those already booked in, the gate needs to be moved further back so you can park to shut or open the gate without blocking the road outside. A lot of Motorhomes use this site, but there is no motorhome service point. This makes getting rid of grey waste water very difficult. Also to fill up with freshwater you have to park in a position where you block a roadway in the site.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

We have stayed at this site in early Spring for a number of years. It is an ideal location for a peaceful break. The West Highland Way skirts the site beside the access road and on the other side is Loch Lomond. Access to walks, boating/canoeing and hill walking are also all available from the site.
