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.

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

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.

A van with a view.

Gartfairn Farm
What a lovely CL site. Sat nav took us straight to the site. The 3 front pitches have a spectacular view of the hills and lake of Loch Lomand. Good space between each pitch with the water and recycling area not far from our van. We went to Balmaha which is only 2 minutes down the road in the car or a good 30 minutes walk on a very narrow weedy uneven path with very fast vehicles zooming by. You can get bus but not sure on times etc. Once in Balmaha we had a lovely walk through woods and lakeside beaches which were stunning. A hard uphill walk to Conic Hill is a must to see the amazing views of the lake, takes about 50 minutes, but worth it. Plus the sunset from the site was amazing , never see a sun so blood red . I would definitely come here again.
