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.
Our Stay the Night trial 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.
There is no charge to park in this car park. Please park with care and consideration. In particular please park in designated parking areas only and do not block entrances or gates.
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.
