The Mouse Water (pronounced moose) tumbles down along the edge of the farm and has some glorious pools for swimming, shallows for paddling and some spectacular water falls before it joins the River Clyde.

Campsites near Dumbarton guide

Overview

Lying on the north bank of the River Clyde, Dumbarton is famed for the striking medieval Dumbarton Castle, which is dramatically perched on top of the distinctive Dumbarton Rock, a volcanic plug. History lovers can explore the castle, which has also served as a Roman outpost, dark age citadel and military base, while, west of the town, outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy the wooded glens, parkland and exotic gardens of the Overtoun Estate. Dumbarton puts you within easy reach of the surrounding Kilpatrick Hills, as well as the nearby Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

Where to go

Balloch

Under a 10-minute drive north of Dumbarton, the pretty village of Balloch is the main gateway to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and a base for activities such as boat trips on the loch, hiking, kayaking and mountain biking. In the village, Lomond Woods Holiday Park has pitches for tourers, as well as a few glamping pods and static caravans.

The West Highland Way

Hiking the 96-mile- (154-kilometre-) long West Highland Way is one of the greatest outdoor adventures in Scotland. A 25-minute drive east of Dumbarton, the West Highland Way Campsite is a great base for those about to begin the route. As well as grass and hardstanding pitches for caravans, motorhomes and tents, the site also has a shepherd's hut and glamping-style bell tents for hire.

Drymen

The West Highland Way continues past the small village of Drymen, which is another handy gateway to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Within the park, the tranquil Drymen Camping offers tent pitches and Kocoons (wooden huts).

Luss

A 20-minute drive north of Dumbarton, the beautiful village of Luss sits on the sandy shores of Loch Lomond. Here, Luss Caravan and Campsite offer scenic views of the loch and pitches for tents and tourers.
