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).

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

The road just outside Balmaha is a steepy. First gear jobber it's only for a couple of hundred metres. Don't even think you can get in before 1300, you have no chance. Pitches are flat and we got free upgrade to hard standing because the grass was wet. Wifi is good but �3 a night. Nice walk into Balmaha. Nice and quiet and 20 feet from the waters edge. Would definitely come here again.

This review is for Milarrochy Bay

Despite the inevitable midgie onslaught,we thoroughly enjoyed our stay,and soon joined the midgie hat wearing fraternity (hats available in the shop!)The staff are very friendly and helpful,under the enthusiastic management of Steve and Jo. More areas are being cleared to enhance the already beautiful lochside views. Facilities immaculate. A two mile meander down the west highland way to Balmaha was rewarded with the delicious food in the Oak Tree pub. Boat trips across the loch available from there.The approach road at Balmaha has one tight 90 degree corner leading to a short steep hill,but we had no problems with it. Pitches are spacious and rows are staggered so that all can see the water, and although the site got very busy at the weekend it never felt crowded? There are storage and boat launching facilities too,always something to watch or participate in. You can be as busy or as lazy as you like here
