Just got back from Luss and had a really good time, the wardens were really friendly and we had a pitch next to the lock.
I was impressed with the local shop in the village, it sold most things from camping stuff to fresh backed pastrys, cakes, bread, wine and beer, infact most thing except not a lot of fresh meat, the prices were reasonable as well, I thought we'd have to move the van a drive to balloch but we didn't move the van all week.
There's also a good cycle path from Balloch to Tarbet and with Luss being in the middle we cycled to tarbet one day and balloch the next, its approx 8 miles to each, the cycle to Tarbet was all off road and really nice, next time we would stop at Firkin point where there's a picnic area and toilets, as there wasn't a lot in tarbet itself.
The cycle to Ballock is mainly off road except for a 5 min section on the luss old road, you then go down the side of the golf course on the right of the big gates as it can be hard to see the path from a distance, but its easy to follow from there.
We had a really lovley evening in The Village Rest where the food was brillient and a good price but it can get busy so its best to book, the number is 01436 860220
We also went in the Colquhoun Arms hotel, it could do with refubishing, but was friendly and has a pool table and Sky, the food and serves was good but not as special as the village rest.
We also had a day out in Glasgow, you can catch the train in Balloch, it cost £2.30 return on the train, there's a bus that goes from the village to Balloch, but we missed the bus back so had to get a taxi, next time we'll drive to Balloch and park the van.
We really enjoyed our time in Luss and will be visiting again.
Firstly, I must say, do not use your SatNav, it will probably take you to the golf club!
Lovely site, well kept although road a little bumpy in places but only to be expected due to being so popular.
Toilets were very clean and plenty of hot water for showers.
The rabbits and ducks didn't seem to mind the visitors!
We arrived and was told that if we wished we could move the following morning to a loch side view, we did and it was absolutely wonderful.
The site is in sections which makes it feel more secluded. Pitches are of a nice size. 2 shower blocks, never too busy. Even cut flowers in the toilet block which I thought was a nice touch. Dish washing areas were clean, light and airy.
There is a shop where you can purchase most of your groceries a short walk from the site and a lovely little village that is a must to see together with an interesting church and viking grave to be found. Nice walks around the area.
Although this site is situated by a main road the traffic noise was muted by trees etc and was not a problem at all.
The keepers of the site were very helpful, friendly and above all cheerful and made us feel very welcome.
The nearby pub was a bit grubby and wouldn't recommend but the 'Village Rest' was a lovely place to eat, friendly staff and not expensive
Grrrreat site, hot powerful showers, clean toilets that even had freshly cut flowers in them, wardens helful and friendly even boiled their kettle for us wen we 4got ours. Big co-op in Balloch for all your supplies and lavender sticks from poundland will make sure you're not the midges buffet. We camped on the waters edge and had breakfast on the beach. A great advert for camping.
Well the views from this site are unbelievable as this is right on the edge of Loch Lomond, when we visited the was a slight water problem. Heavy rain the week before which made the pitches a bit boggy, but other than that its a very clean site with helpful managers, we found that the nearest shops were some distance away in Dunbarton as was the petrol station, so we always topped up the petrol when we got the shopping. A very well set out site, but beware of the dreaded Midges.
This was my first camping trip so don't have anything to compare it to but I had a great weekend at Luss. Facilities were good and clean, hairdryer was a bonus (takes 20p a time).
Staff were friendly and gave me help to put the tent up. I was pitched near the entrance and right next to the loch which was lovely.
The only slight downside to this site was the midges, but can these be avoided in Scotland? and the hotel next door had something going on at night, music playing until 12pm but once the earplugs were in wasnt a problem. The shop on site sells midge repellent and Avon skin so soft for those who don't come prepared.
The village of Luss itself is good for a wander also a few well signposted planned routes around the surrounding area and you can also take a boat trip around the islands on the loch from here. The shop has a wide variety of items including some camping equipment but try to make sure you take everything with you I paid £11 for a bottle of sun cream.
What a fantastic long weekend we have just had at Luss. The Staff on site were so attentive and show you to your pitch, they were brilliant with the kis, telling them which wildlife to look out for and where to play.
Even though they had had heavy rain before we got there they made sure that the ground was ok around the pitches.
The showers were fantastic, really warm and powerful and extremely clean, they are cleaned between 2-3pm, a sensible time, if only other sites would follow!
The area has plenty to do, shopping at the Lomond Shores Centre, Sealife Centre, Pedloes, canoes and visitors centre full of info for the area.
