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).

Wonderful location with very friendly and helpful staff.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

Wonderful location with very friendly and helpful staff. Good walks directly from site and in area, including for dogs. We found no problem with TV but there is need to be very careful on approach. There is a sharp right hand blind bend in Balmaha but the real problem is that there is then a very steep although short hill. We were ok with our caravan but understand that some others had problems, including damage to clutches. Need 1st gear and be aware of poor road surface. Many places to visit; we were fortunate that Cowal open studio weekend coincided and if interested in art we can recommend this. If using ferry then buy tickets from newsagents though as cheaper than on ferry. Also excellent mobile take away at Rest and be Thanful on A83 if driving to Cowal.

The place is really clean, tidy and pretty.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

The place is really clean, tidy and pretty. The staff really like what they do and getting involved with customers like doing a karaoke session on a Saturday night, but always respecting the sleeping times (karaoke finished quite early, at 10 p.m). You have to be aware of the office hours because if you arrive to the campsite out of these hours you can park your car in a little parking they have and get in walking. This is because you need a code for the door that they will give you (when they are in office hours). To leave the camping with your car you go through the other door that doesn't need a code but it's automatic, ii opens automatically when your car is close (unless it's 11 p.m at night that you can't come in with the car). They have a little shop with the basics (milk and things like that and things like gas bottles, etc). The lake by the camp site is beautiful and quite. It's very important that you take a repellent or something like this because there are midges and they warn about this. I didn't get bitten by any but just in case. They also recommend a repellent called Smidge that seems to be quite effective. The surroundings are also very nice. Balmaha is the closest town (but there is only 1 little shop, an amazing coffee shop and a wonderful restaurant called the Oat Tree which is also a hotel, a good one). Is like around 3 to 5 min. by car, 30 min. walking and one of the villages where the Highlands way passes by. The other restaurants that are really good too are in Drymen, like 10-15 min. by car where I highly recommend the Clachan Inn. There are so many things around, castles, rivers, Fort William, the Glen Nevis and the Steall waterfall, Stirling, the Wallace monument...that you can't get bored.

The site is situated on the lake so is perfect for launching, but is quite secluded.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

The site is situated on the lake so is perfect for launching, but is quite secluded. Balmaha is 1 1/2 miles away which has a village shop and cash point (which charges �1.75 for withdrawal). We travelled to Balloch a lot for shopping as there is a Co op, but there is also a Spar 5 miles away in Drymen with free cash withdrawal

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

The staff were really helpful and polite, the actual site is amazing for views across Loch Lomond the approach road is a little noisy / busy all day.Our tent pitch was facing the back packers facility although the packers were all polite and very nice the area become very busy around 6-10pm which made it quite noisy (the hand dryer in the toilets was right next to the door and was very loud packers used this to dry off boots / clothes which meant it seemed to be constantly on during the mentioned hours) however that was just our pitch the rest of the site seamed really peaceful, would recommend the site to active walkers or water sports.
