Why stay here ...

Gartfairn Farm CL is a quiet site, set on a working livestock farm, in Loch Lomond National Park, overlooking Loch Lomond. Adults/Children/Pets all welcome. The site offers 5 hardstanding pitches with electrical hook-ups and plenty of space for awnings etc.

The site is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area, being 1 mile from Balmaha, on the banks of Loch Lomond. Balmaha boasts a shop, village pub, visitors centre plus boatyard where trips to Luss, Balloch or round the islands may be booked.

The West Highland Way runs through Balmaha, so fantastic walks up the loch side, or to the top of the Conic, which is 1,200 feet, with the walk starting from the car park in Balmaha.

Drymen is 3 miles from the site and has numerous pubs, restaurants, butchers, post office and gift shops. A bus service runs from the farm road end to Balmaha, Drymen and Balloch.

Further afield, we are 50 miles to Edinburgh, 28 miles to Glasgow or 23 miles to the historic city of Stirling. Explore Stirling Castle or the Wallace Monument.

Excellent Site - fantastic location - shame about noisey others staying!

Gartfairn Farm
Stayed her for 2 nights in May on way back from Loch Ness. Everything about the site, views and location were fantastic. EHU, Water and Waste close by. Well maintained and close to fields with sheep/ lambs and cattle. Fantastic views of Loch Lomond and the islands toward Balmaha. 3 front pitches have the best views of the Loch - however surrounding scenery just as good with hills and countryside. Shame about other visitors; even though a working farm, let their dogs out without leads... despite the warning signs... our neighbour emptied their grey water container into the filed opposite!!! and whilst it's good to be chatty, talking very loudly for over an hour on numerous occasions was somewhat disturbing... however will definitely be visiting again next year.

A tranquil site with views of Loch Lomond

Gartfairn Farm
A well maintained site, beautiful views and ideal for touring around Loch Lomond. The owners were extremely helpful when our friends self levelling broke And were unable to move. They Accommodate us for an extra night which was the most kind of them.

Relaxing break

Gartfairn Farm
Fantastic views and a well laid out site, with water and ehu on each pitch. About 3/4 mile from Balmaha easy walking. Canic Hill dominates the back drop and a circular walk from the site is about 6 to 7 miles up and around it using the western way. It's a working farm surrounded by fields of sheep with lambs on our visit, helpful and friendly hosts. Would highly recommend this site.

Stayed for 3 nights in early October. Easy access. Wonderful views of Loch Lomond and hills from the caravan. Lovely walks along the loch side north from Balmaha and south from Rowardennan. Also visited the Hill House at Helensburgh - fascinating.

Lovely and peaceful with amazing views

Gartfairn Farm
Lovely well maintained site with friendly owners. The views of Loch Lomond were amazing. We could only get 4 nights because of high demand but would have stay longer if we could.
