Wake up in the woods

The forest is a magical place at any time of day. Why go home when you can stay?

There are plenty of options for those who want to spend the night surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature.


Composting toilets, mobile fire pits and no showers – Sallochy woodland campsite on Loch Lomond is a total eco-experience.

Cabins in the forest

Hire a wooden cabin by lovely Loch Long or in the stunning landscape of the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park. During the day you can enjoy plenty of activities for the whole family. There are miles of forest trails to explore and wonderful woodland wildlife. Book through Forest Holidays.

Wild camping

We encourage responsible wild camping. Please minimise any impact on your surroundings and take all of your litter home. The Scottish Outdoor Access Code has more information and guidance about how to wild camp responsibly.

Camping is welcome throughout the Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park. But, in order to protect some of our most cherished loch shores, byelaws covering camping and firelighting will be in effect in some parts of the Park between March and September. Camping from October to February is unaffected.

Stay the Night

Our Stay the Night initiative has now closed for the season. All participating car parks have now reverted to no overnight parking permitted, in line with all our car parks. 

We have had a considerable response to the initiative and have received a lot of feedback covering a range of views. This feedback, together with our experience of managing the initiative, will be factored in to our discussions as we consider future options for 2023 and beyond. 

We would like to thank everyone who has taken part and who has taken the time to offer comment.
