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

For the last two years I've organised a meet at Milarrochy Bay for the Open Canoe Sailing Group. During both visits we've found the site to be almost perfect for our group with friendly helpful staff, great facilities and easy access to the loch to launch and land our sailing canoes. The walk into Balmaha is lovely for an evening stroll (possibly incorporating a meal and a drink) and there are excellent walking routes nearby with some of the group choosing to climb Conic Hill and Ben Lomond as an alternative to sailing. Hopefully we'll be back again at the same time next year as this meet has become a valued addition to our club's calendar. Thanks to all the staff at the site for being such good hosts.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

Access to the site is from a single track road and due to a strategically placed traffic cone new arrivals are forced to stop outside reception and register their arrival this means that another arrival is forced to stop out on the narrow road and block all traffic. I could not understand this as there is sufficient space to park a unit just a few metres further in. Like wise exit from the site is in my opinion dangerous as there is a metal gate which needs to be opened and then closed when the unit has gone through, Unfortunately this means the unit is again blocking the narrow road as there is not sufficient space between the gate and the road to park a unit while you get out and close the gate. When we had set up we took our car to nearby Drymen for some supplies and on return we entered the site via the marked entrance as the only other access had a large no entry sign and was, as it turned out meant only for exit, or so we thought. We were immediately approached by a female warden who informed us as we had already checked in we should have entered via the No Entry sign!! This site is directly on the West Highland Way long distance walk and of course is used by campers, this is not a problem as I believe they have a backpackers building with all facilities available. Unfortunately either the facilities were not available or they decided to use the main block for showers but this resulted in the shower block being filthy with grass and mud in the showers and on the floor. I have to say the shower block area was not really up to the standard I expect from the club and there were several other niggly problems on site with various facilities not available to to apparent breakdown. We walked into Balmaha which is a lovely walk and a very nice little village with hotel and coffee shops. We decided to visit the coffee shop and for 4 coffee's and scones were charged �21, in my opinion this is yet another example of the traders ripping off the tourists.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

The site is located on the. side of the loch with wonderful views of the mountains. The pitches are reasonably large and easy to park. The facilities are very clean and kept up to date. We have never met staff as helpful and hard working they never stop. Walking from the site is very easy if you want a stroll on th loch side, or more difficult if you want to follow the West Highland Way. There are so many lovely places to visit either by car or ferry, and the site has slipways for launching small boats. This was the first Camping and Caravan Site we have visited although we have been caravaning for many years, but it won't be the last
