Tweed Valley Osprey Project Co-ordinator, Di Bennett, brings us the latest update from the nest.
Sallochy Campsite is situated on the Eastern shores of Loch Lomond and offers stunning views across the loch towards the Arrochar Alps. The small beach is a perfect spot to unwind and enjoy the scenery and the 200 year old oak woodland is a peaceful place to stroll and spot some local wildlife.
The campsite has basic facilities to give you a 'wilder' camping experience. Composting toilets and drinking water are available but there are no showers on-site.
The site is ideal for families, walkers and those wanting to experience a short outdoor break in the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. Please book early to avoid disappointment as the campsite is often full during the summer.
Sallochy is a great resting place after a long day of walking on the West Highland Way and an idyllic setting to enjoy a picnic or barbecue by the water.
We are open seasonally for camping from 1 April to 31 October.
Our campsite wardens are on site between 9am and 3:30pm, 7 days a week.
We offer a number of pitches in various locations around our site. From the stunning loch side pitches to the central area pitches there is a spot for everyone.
Pets are welcome on all pitches, however, please ensure they are kept under close control at all times.
If you have any feedback about your stay you can leave a review online or e-mail email@example.com.
The trails here wind through tranquil oakwoods that are over 200 years old. This is a great place to watch for wildlife, including secretive roe deer and noisy jays. Enjoy a picnic beside the loch or take to the water – this is a popular place for wild swimming.
Climb through a delightfully varied woodland to the craggy viewpoint on Dun Maoil for spectacular views over Loch Lomond and the Arrochar Alps.
