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.

Great views towards Loch Lomond

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.

Perfect CL

We spent two nights on our way further north and another night on our way home. Easy to find, incredible views over Loch Lomond, lovely sheep and cattle around the farm, close to walks around the Loch and hills. a wonderful start and finish to a great holiday.

beautiful site

great little site, all the pitches are hard standing, with a turning circle in the middle which made maneuvering easy, we stopped ion the corner pitch which seemed the only one that sloped slightly to one corner, but after a bit of a fiddle we found a place where the van and awning were in level ish ground, EHU was very close to each pitch which was great, waist point was easy accessed from each pitch to, but the best part of the site is the view, watching the sunset over Loch Lomond is stunning, and just down the road is easy access tot he Loch, with a little pub and ice cream shop, it makes it a great location, we would definitely stop here again when up in Scotland.

Great views and access to things to do

Just returned from a few nights as part of several stop overs. Sat nav took us straight there. The spaces are adequate although we were pitched up against the field with cows. They took an active interest in us and the dog which was fun... although were woken at sunrise. Fab access to Balmaha is great as was conic hill. Glad took advice to go via Milton of Buchanan. The pub which is the oldest in Scotland in Drymen was really nice and friendly. Walking along the shore are Loch Lomond was lovely. After paying the owner that was only time we saw them... that would be my only slight negative. Def value for money and would def return
