This was our first visit to Cashel. The site is in a beautiful location on the shores of Loch Lomond.

We found an excellent pitch with an unobstructed view of the loch although next time we will book a premier pitch which is looking on to the shore and has a picnic table.

The staff were very pleasant, the small shop provides fresh baked bread in the morning. The coffee shop was 'out of order' due to some electrical fault.

The feeder roads to the pitches were pretty rough in places and not too good for walking on in the wet conditions when we were there.

The midges were vicious. Could the site consider a couple of midge catcher machines which I understand are very effective in reducing their numbers.

I notice remarks left on one of the reviews about there being a lot of Hobby vans on the site. We had no problem with them. They appear to be used by families who enjoy the peaceful surroundings on a regular basis. It would not put me off from going back.

We had a lovely walk with our dog to the foot of Ben Lomond and watched a Golden Eagle circling above us. In the field opposite the site we saw a red deer munching grass along with the cattle.

There are quite a few Loch cruises which can take you over to Luss which is a very pretty village on the opposite side of the loch. You have a two hour stay there which allows time to have a meal.

There is a lovely hotel overlooking the loch which is only a short walk from the jetty. Don't trip over the ducks on the way along the beach!

Take The Highroad was filmed on location in this picturesque village. We could have done with Wi- Fi on site but found the Inn at Balmaha had it.

The toilet blocks were clean with good hot water at the showers.

All in all a good site and one we would return to.

We camped here for 2 nights in July. The location is beautiful. We pre-booked a select pitch which was rather pricey but the view made it worth while. We brought along plenty rock pegs as they are hard standing pitches all along the front row. Unfortunately our pitch was directly under a tree which dripped sticky sap onto the roof of our brand new tent, not good!

The facilities are excellent. Clean toilets and showers. Well stocked shop.

There are loads to do nearby. We drove up to Balmaha and from there, caught the boat to Balloch and spent a lovely day at the Aquarium. Really pretty return journey. Had the boat all to ourselves.

We also climbed Ben Lomond, what a killer, but the views are to die for. On our return to the tent we were too tired to cook, so ordered a pizza from the site shop which was promptly delivered to our tent half an hour later. Delicious!

Lots of people with boats/canoes on site. Great place to launch. Our kids took a dip in their wet suits (under close supervision - it's a deep loch!)

The site wasn't too busy mid week but as we left on the Friday it was really beginning to fill up and get quite noisy, so I'd avoid going at the weekends.

All in all, we would probably return. Just remember to bring you Avon Skin So Soft spray. The midges were bad when the wind dropped!

A lovely campsite! Great staff, helpful and friendly. Great views and terrific walks nearby. At night it was incredible how many stars could be seen!

The serviced pitches are hardstanding and the gravel can be difficult to peg a tent.

We Walked about 6 miles along to and back where you can hire a kayak for a few hours inc life jacket and pop over to the small islands. I had never kayaked before but loved it.

Great shop on campsite too!

Will return for sure!

The views from this site were spectacular. The road to get to this site is treacherous, watch out for the very steep hill. The site was clean and the toilet facilities were new and clean. The site has one very small play park that would only keep the kids entertained for 10 minutes. The beach is very rocky and again not particularly kid friendly. All in all this is a site geared towards adults and water sports enthusiasts. But one word of warning the midges will eat you alive.

An ok site but I can't see anything that special about it aside the lakeview and despite really wanting to like it.

Granted we stayed on the Bank Holiday weekend so it was bound to be busy, but pitches were not well defined so it felt very cramped and it seemed as though a lot of the caravan pitches were taken up by seasonal visitors which gave the feeling that you were intruding on 'their' site.

The facilities were generally good and the staff very helpful but for me the site is too busy and consequently much too noisy.

There are plenty of lovely sites in Scotland and I'm sure this one is ok for some but I won't be returning to it in any great hurry. The price for a non-hookup standard pitch was something like 30 a night which I feel was too high- especially having to pay completely up front and a no refund policy- despite the no refund, I'd had enough after a couple of nights and left 2 nights early.

Awesome. We had a view of the Loch from our caravan window. We seen fantastic sunsets. Rain clouds. Rainbows. Deer. All amazing.

Walked up the Hill with the dogs and what a fantastic view of the whole loch.

Staff were so friendly and helpful, toilets really clean and tidy. Will definitely use again and again.

This park is on the West Highland Way, so you can walk into the village off the roads. Take a boat trip. Lots of lovely little villages and tea shops nearby to visit.

Even my dogs loved it, tied on their leads with the cheeky ducks just measuring the length of the leads to safely walk by.
