Luxury river, stream, or creek campsites near Inveraray guide

Overview

Set on the shores of Loch Fyne, the small but bustling town of Inveraray is packed with history and heritage. It’s home to fine examples of Georgian architecture as well as the neo-Gothic Inveraray Castle, from which walking trails take you to the summit of Dun na Cuaiche for sweeping views. Inverary makes for an easy trip by train or car from Glasgow or Edinburgh, as well as a great base from which to explore Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park where rugged mountains, dramatic glens and misty lochs draw plenty of outdoor enthusiasts. Campers have options, too, from well-appointed caravan parks to wild camping.

Where to go

Around Inverary

Three miles south of Inveraray, on the edge of Loch Fyne, and within easy access of activities such as fishing, sailing, and boating, Argyll Caravan Park has plenty of motorhome and caravan pitches with views over the loch toward the hills and glens of the West Highlands. The site also has a selection of glamping pods.

Lochgilphead

Around 20 miles down the western shore of Loch Fyne, the village Lochgilphead lies at the tip of Loch Gilp, a shorter, offshoot loch. Staying here puts you within easy reach of amenities, such as the village’s cluster of independent shops, and makes an ideal base for exploring the Kintyre area with its opportunities for fishing, walking and other outdoor pursuits. On the Crinan Canal, Lochgilphead Caravan Park has large serviced touring pitches, as well as static caravans for rent.

Luss

Around 30 miles west of Inveraray, the pretty village of Luss is one of the main gateways to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. It’s also where sightseeing cruises typically depart. In a tranquil spot on the western banks of Loch Lomond, just outside the village but within walking distance of a pub and shops, Luss Caravan and Campsite has a range of touring and camping pitches, many with hookups.

When to go

For enjoying long, sunny days in the great outdoors, visiting in spring and summer is best. Note, however, that the area gets very busy in July and August. September or October is a good alternative: crowds are much smaller and the blooming heather turns the hills purple. You’ll get the place to yourself in winter but likely have to put up with chilly temperatures, wet conditions and 4 p.m. sunsets.

Know before you go

  • Some private sites in the area are seasonal: check opening dates before traveling.
  • Wild camping is possible along Loch Fyne but comes with responsibilities. Check the Scottish Outdoor Access Code website to find out more.
  • Be aware that ticks (which can carry Lyme disease) are present in the National Park, especially in spring and summer.
  • Train services provide access from Glasgow and Edinburgh and a limited bus service runs around the area.
