We visited Cashel for the first time recently. The views are stunning and the site is well kept and in good order. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The toilets and other facilities were excellent, clean, warm and well kept.

We booked a Superior pitch to have the picnic bench. The superior pitches are on the Loch shore and on hardstanding which was not ideal for a tent but didn't cause an issue as we have an extra ground sheet and a tent carpet.

The grassy area for tents is medium sized and set back a little from the shore.

We took a Canoe and had a short paddle to a small island opposite the site where we cooked lunch and explored with the children.

Overall an excellent site, I expect we will visit again.

High point: being pitched right on the loch shore facing a stunning view.

An interesting drive down a narrow lane, 11 miles from the main road, but well worth it. A warm welcome and a fantastic location. If you want a lochside pitch then you must book a premium with a picnic bench, not cheap but the view is superb.

Warm clean toilet block with super showers. Good washing up area. Only one toilet block was open when we were there so cant comment on the older looking one.

Our only negative comments would be the large number of huge 'Hobby' caravans dominating the site which are used as statics. They do seem to take over. The site roads and general feel of the place was a little neglected.

We travelled 365 miles to this site in extremely wet weather but first impressions were good. We found the staff to be very helpful. We were surprised that you could pitch anywhere to the left of the play area. With no marked out standard pitches.

The area for standard pitching was a bit water logged but we were pre warned and this is only to be expected with the variable summer weather!

We pitched near to the shop which was stocked with basics to keep you going. We found all areas to be clean and loved the fact that I could get my two girls showered in a family shower room. Laundry room was also a god send.

Childrens playa rea basic but to be quite honest there is so much exploring to do that it doesn`t create too much of a problem.

We visited Rowardennan because of Ben Lomond walk also lovely walks at the Cashel Forest Centre one min up the road from camp site. Loch absolutely stunning in any weather and despite the months rainfall falling in the week we were here we were outside doing something all the time.

We took a canoe but you can hire them and there are also ferry trips.

Very busy site, very friendly people, staff always there for info and help.

Would definitely go again.

The most important aspect of a great holiday is the friendliness of the staff. This made our short break a cut above the rest.

On pulling up at Cachel, the scenery in front of us was breathtaking, and then were told we could park up anywhere along the Loch edge! It was fantastic. We had sunshine, and got quite a suntan!

The Oaktree pub, 3 miles down the road, was lovely, where we enjoyed haggis and a cream tea in the middle of our bike ride! We have electric assisted bikes - but my battery failed after 6 miles, so it was a hilly walk/ride back again!

All facilities were clean, safe and secure. We will definitely be returning - its our favourite place so far!

We have just returned from a 3 night stay here at the end of our 2 week tour of Scotland.

Lovely location as we were pitched right on the lochside, the views were amazing and the weather was kind to us but unfortunately due to the dreaded midgies it was impossible to sit outside, even with every repellent known to man to hand!

The staff were friendly and the facilities clean with nice hot showers. Good play area for the children. As stated earlier the weather was ok when we were there but would imagine it could quickly get very muddy as many areas seemed quite boggy even after a dry spell.

We loved this site but it did appear a little neglected around the pitches, the grass needed mowing and generally tiding up.

However saying that we would definitely return.

Fairly good campsite. I think they could improve on the toilet facilities as the floors were constantly flooded and slippery. We were eaten alive by our midgie friends while putting up and dismantling the tent but otherwise they were not to bad.

There had been heavy rain and the central part for pitching tents was very boggy especially as it's not very level and the dips were just huge puddles.

We camped beside the burn which is kinda loud at night when your trying to sleep but that was our own oversight. There vacant level spots next to empty hard standing which could have been used but lay empty.

The children's play area is beside a toilet disposal and we had to call out to small children not to touch. There could be a gate to restrict access to adults only!

The location is fabulous. Would recommend it for a short stay. Lookout for the chap at the shop with the shaved head. He completely ignores you when you walk in. Nothing personal mind!
