Our campsites at Loch Chonand Loch Achray have now closed for the winter and will reopen again in Spring 2021.
Many National Park facilities are open but some may be open at limited times or at a reduced capacity especially during the winter months. Please Think, Check and Plan ahead by going to our Advice to Visitors page.
Small but picturesque Loch Achray is reached six miles west of the tourist town of Callander, or via the Duke’s Pass heading north from Aberfoyle.
The idyllic location is between two larger lochs, Katrine and Venachar, and at the foot of Ben A’an, where you can start a walk to the 454m summit. The views back down over the still waters on a fine day are breath-taking.
Loch Achray is an informal campsite offering the opportunity to camp on a small, beautifully located site with basic facilities. In a sheltered spot on the shores of Loch Achray, it offers 17 pitches for tents through a mixture of open and woodland camping. Parking is available on-site and you will be allocated a designated parking space when you book your pitch.
There are two accessible pitches (Pitches 16 and 17), with accessible toilets and designated parking nearby. View a map of the campsite.
What you need to know
The campsite is nestled in woodland, with beautiful views over Loch Achray and the surrounding area.
There is clean running water available on-site. Please note there are no showers on site.
Prices are £7 per adult per night, children under 16 go free.
Please note that bins are not provided so campers are asked to take home all waste and recycling to dispose of at home.
We also encourage campers to try to reduce the amount of waste they generate while staying at the campsite.
Access across the site is provided by a path network, not all the paths are flat and there are some short flights of steps and steep sections to the campsite.
Accessible pitches (Pitches 16 and 17) are available on-site, with accessible toilets close by and designated parking accessed via a firm, level path a short distance away.
Parking is available on-site and you will be allocated a designated parking space when you book your pitch.
Some pitches come with fire bowls (check pitch description for details) and fire wood is available to pre-book online along with your camping pitch – we have found that people tend to enjoy a fire so much that two bags are often required.
Pitches 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17 have raised wooden platforms and you’ll need to use the chains and hooks provided in order to secure your tent. Read here a very easy guide on how to use the chains and hooks. Our poster on site will also offer you guidance.
You can stay for up to three nights.
The campsite is open from 1st March – 30th September (extended to 26th October for 2020)
Pitches are available from 2pm on the day of arrival and must be vacated by 11am on day of your departure.
Our full terms and conditions provide important information about your stay. Please familiarise yourself with them before you arrive.
There will be lots of midges during the summer months!
