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.

First outing with our caravan

Gartfairn Farm
We found the site easily with the satnav on our journey from Fife.It was the first outing with the caravan.We chose a hardstanding that had a lovely view of Loch Lomond.There was electric hook up & a water tap at the side.Rubbish bins/recycling & waste disposal were opposite. We had a problem with our battery & the farmer was very helpful. It was a perfect time of the year to stay on a working livestock farm with lots of lambs & calves in the fields.I even got the pleasure of meeting 1 day old twin calves. We were ideally situated for visiting/walking to neighbouring places of interest/beauty eg Balmaha. We would highly recommend this site & thoroughy enjoyed our 4 night stay.It was so peaceful & wonderful to wake up to the stunning views. Would stay here again if we were in the area.

Great views towards Loch Lomond

Gartfairn Farm
Single night stay en-route to Bunree. Lovely CL, peaceful and with amazing views towards Loch Lomond and well kept. As a motorhomer, the only disappointment was the lack of public footpaths down to the Loch. The walk alongside the road on a narrow pavement to Balmaha was dangerous at times, with some day trippers heading down to the tourist trap having no regard for the speed limits. Once in Balmaha (about 1.25 miles) the walk by the loch side was fantastic.
