As you follow the road along the eastern shore of Loch Eck, stop at one of our picnic sites and enjoy gorgeous views across the loch. Jubilee Point picnic site is particularly photogenic, so don't forget to bring your camera.
Loch Eck is a great place for wildlife. Red squirrels forage its shores and deep under its surface swims Scotland's rarest freshwater fish – the powan. This relic from the ice age is a protected species and is only found here and in Loch Lomond.
Portable, non-motorised craft - like canoes or kayaks - can be launched from Jubilee Point.
Camping from your vehicle is not permitted here. There are campsites with facilities nearby at Sandbank and Kilmun, by Dunoon.
The nearest public toilets are at Whistlefield and the café at Benmore Garden.
Motorhomes and campervans that are self-contained and have their own toilet facilities will be able to stay overnight at the Jubilee Point car park on Loch Eck from 26 April – 31 October 2021. This does not include overnight tent camping or car parking.
To help plan your stay, please see the details below:
Please visit our Stay the Night page for full details, participating locations, best practice, and terms and conditions of use.

There are two car parks with picnic facilities along the east bank of Lock Eck on the A815. Jubilee Point can be found approximately half way along the loch.
