Moss Wood connects to the West Island Way – take the Poetry Trail and the spur to the Viewing Point – and then take the Stag’s Trod further up (steeply) till you reach the West Island Way.

Glamping near Lochgilphead guide

Overview

Set off the western shores of Loch Fyne and at the tip of its offshoot, Loch Gilp, the small village of Lochgilphead is a great base for exploring the Kintyre peninsula and enjoying such outdoor activities as fishing, boating and hiking. The area is home to historic sites including the Crinan Canal and Iron Age Dunadd Fort, as well as the Moine Mhòr National Nature Reserve. Those staying in Lochgilphead are also within a 20-minute drive of Tarbert from where ferries depart for the islands of Islay, Jura, Colonsay, Cowal and Arran. Campers have options, too, from well-appointed caravan parks to glamping pods and lochside tent pitches.

Where to go

Around Lochgilphead

In the center of town, next to the Crinan Canal, Lochgilphead Caravan Park offers a convenient location within steps of shops and restaurants and within walking distance of Kilmory Castle.  The site has large touring pitches for caravans and motorhomes, as well as static caravans for rent. 

Ardfern

Around 15 miles northwest of Lochgilphead, the bustling little village of Ardfern lies on the Craignish peninsula, facing the Loch Craignish sea loch. There’s lots of walking routes along the loch’s shores with views toward the offshore islands. For those traveling by motorhome, caravan or campervan, the small Ardfern Motorhome Park offers peaceful lochside pitches with scenic views. 

Tarbert

A 20-minute drive south of Lochgilphead, the pretty harbor town of Tarbert is a hub for fishing fleets and ferry transport to the islands. The view from the ruined Tarbert Castle takes in the harborfront and over Loch Fyne. Tarbert Holiday Park has spacious touring pitches and heated glamping pods. 

When to go

For enjoying long, sunny days in the great outdoors, visiting Lochgillphead in the summer months is best, although this is peak season and can get busy, especially during school holidays. September or October is a good alternative for smaller crowds and pretty scenery as the blooming heather turns the hills purple. Winter is quiet but days are cold and short, with the sun setting as early as 4 p.m.

Know before you go

  • Some campsites 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.
  • You can reach Lochgilphead by bus from Glasgow. Local buses also run to many places of interest around the Kintyre peninsula.
