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.

Recently returned from our second visit to this site.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

Recently returned from our second visit to this site. We received a really warm welcome and the wardens/assistants were friendly and helpful during our stay. We were blessed with beautiful sunshine on our first day which was an added bonus. The site is immaculate and toilet/shower facilities kept spotlessly clean. For the less serious walkers, there is a lovely woodland walk into Balmaha (treat yourself to a lovely meal and a refreshment at The Oak Tree in Balmaha as it's definitely worth a visit). Had a few problems with midges but that's to be expected in this area. Would definitely recommend this site.

what a wonderful site offered lake side view upon arrival and staff were polite and friendly.site was clean and tidy. Good site for dog owners some problems with midges due to lakeside location. Was disappointed with access problems to facilities due to door codes not working meaning they were not secure.we where made aware of this but feel it should maintained better.sorrounding is beautiful with plenty of lakeside walks around the site.loch lomand shore and luss short drives away and waterbus local.loch lomand shore was extremely dog friendly even having a dog caf� and welcoming them into most shops.boat company also took dogs on tours at no extra cost which was pleasing as we could our dog with us.
