Sallochy is a basic tents only campsite on the shore of Loch Lomond. It's main attraction is the beautiful location and the wild camping experience. This was my second stay here so I knew what to expect. I chose a camping pitch right by the shore a short walk along the path from the car park. You're surrounded by trees with no close neighbors so it's really private and idyllic. There is composting toilets and cold running water on site which is all you need for a couple of days. The entrance gate is locked at night to stop random folk turning up, only those who have booked get the code so you can come and go as you please. I drove down to the nearby village of Balloch for dinner at the Oak Tree Inn. I hired a firepit and bought a bag of logs from the friendly wardens and sat out round my wee fire on the beach as the sun went down. Then in the morning I woke to the sight of the must riding over the loch. Absolutely stunning. There are also picnic tables by the car park with metal plates for putting your BBQ on. Sallochy is ideal for those wanting a quiet basic site in a beautiful location.

Chose this site for a one night stopover as home to final destination was too far for one day's travel.

Booked and paid online, all very easy and efficient and the email with confirmation also included details of how to access the site should I be delayed and arrive after the warden had gone home (I didn't).

The things that some people might think are disadvantages. There are only two toilets (composting - an experience if you have never come across them before) and only cold running water. For me these are not problems just part of getting away from everything.

The furthest pitch is still only a short stones-throw from the loch and the views are stunning. There is also plenty of walking in and around the area and a scattering of picnic benches if you don't fancy a cook-out on the shore.

It had rained quite a lot in the run up to my visit so I had to walk around the site a bit to find a place to pitch the tent (no marked pitches in the centre, only on the shore) that wasn't too soggy.

If you want lots of facilities and everything to be on-hand then this is not the place for you. If you want peace, quiet, scenery, wildlife and to be just one step away from wild camping then this site should be on your list of places to go. It has certainly made my re-visit list.

We stayed in a lochside pitch at Sallochy on the last weekend in July. Glorious isolation and pretty much our own private little bit of loch shore. The West Highland Way ran directly behind us, but we were rarely disturbed. The main camping on the clearing at the centre of the site was a little more busy, but everyone appeared to have easily enough room. The facilities are basic but good; three composting toilets and a large sink with washing up facilities and drinking water. Firepit loan was 20, with wood, of which we got a tenner back. The wardens were never less than cheery, friendly and helpful. You're not far from Balhama for a good hot meal and beautifully placed for all manner of walking through woods, round lochs, on hills. All in all a lovely, isolated and peaceful spot, like wild camping but with loos. Take your Smidge/Deet/Citron candles. Like you would for anywhere in Scotland, by a loch, in July. Also, at 10 per night for both us, really good value.

Firstly, I will definitely visit here again!

Spectacular views of the loch. Pitches at loch side or in camp field (which is about 10m from loch!) Located on the west highland way so ideal to stop off at for walkers.

This is a wild campsite so no showers available. Compost toilets were cleaner than some other campsites we visited! Tap water and sink for washing up.

The Loch is cold but well worth a dip in!

Moira the warden was very friendly and positive despite the rain in July!

Only 5 per person. BBQs/campfires allowed once they are off the ground.

The walk to Balhala village and the walk up to the view point behind the campsite are worth a visit.

Lovely atmosphere, very chilled. Ideal for a 'real' camping experience.

Environmentally sound camping with a wild camping feel. Flat, firm area for tents in a fenced area in the woodland or a pitch loch side next to the West Highland Way. Ideal for campers who are wild camping whilst doing the West Highland Way but need to stop overnight in the restricted area on the East side of the Loch or great for one or two nights spent camping next to the beach. Whole campsite was clean and tidy and on the edge of the beach. Composting toilets, unusual to some but thoughtfully explained using information boards. Dish washing area and drinking water available. No showers or shop but if a wild camping experience is wanted this site is ideal. Friendly and welcoming Forestry Wardens. Online booking only.

A beautiful location and great views. The campsite is very basic, but don't let it put you off.

You can book your pitch online (5 pound/tent) and pay with paypal-nice, safe and easy.

The warden was a friendly bloke wearing a funny hat with a net, however, the closer to the evening the more we became aware what was the reason behind the hat- the midges! Get a spray and you should be fine. Should, because our sprays didn't help, hahhaha.

If you want a campfire you can hire a firepit and buy some firewood from the warden.

Overall, basic, but very good and would recommend to a friend.
