      Loch pitches are the way to go! Loads of privacy and very quiet. The wardens are terrific and would definitely stay again.

      Fantastic view on Loch Lomond. Ideal for hikers, kayakers and backpackers. There are (compost) toilets and a sink with drinking water. But no showers. The wardens are kind....

      Warden was not there in the time he was supposed to be and it was also impossible to call him. Otherwise good campsite.

      I loved every minute of my stay, apart from the rain when setting up. This made some areas a little too wet and boggy to pitch on but it didn't deter us. The wardon on duty was great and friendly....
