A welcoming campsite on the West Highland Way

Hipcamp hosts are generally a welcoming lot but, perhaps, none more so than Andrew Edmonstone of the West Highland Way Campsite. This year-round camping and glamping site in the foothills of the Highlands is a not-for-profit enterprise within the vast Duntreath Estate which Andrew calls home. Your pitch fee not only gives you a rather scenic spot among mountains and forests but it also helps support van lifers—those who live in their vans and vehicles full time. They are offered a safe space to park up for as long as they need it. And for us part-time campers it’s a pretty welcoming place too. Tents, campervans, motorhomes and caravans are all equally welcome. And dogs are invited along as well. 

The campsite is about 20 minutes’ drive from the north of Glasgow and 20 minutes from the edge of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. It’s close to the place where the 96-mile West Highland Way crosses the 134-mile John Muir Way, two long-distance walking routes designed to showcase the scenery in this part of Scotland. As a result this place is a godsend for hikers—especially as breakfast is included. That’s served in the site’s clubhouse cafe where tea, coffee, lunch and evening meals are on offer too.

The campsite is pretty big, with 40 pitches for those with a tent, campervan, or motorhome, and 40 bell tents. Pitches can be with or without electric hook-up and are straightforwardly priced per head with no additional charges. Even logs for your campfire (if you want one) are included in the fee. The bell tents, of course, are differently priced but you’re paying for the luxury of a pre-erected tent, a blow-up bed and your bedding all provided.

However you choose to stay, the West Highland Way Campsite is a great base on the edge of the Highlands. The Duntreath Estate offers plenty to do. There’s a whisky distillery, fishing, falconry and golf. Along with the lochs, mountains, forests and wildlife; it’s just about everything you might hope for on a holiday in Scotland.

Gorgeous Highland Views
Andrew was an excellent host, and shared a bit of history about the location. We had stunning highland views from our Motorhome pitch. The food was delicious and the amenities were clean and in great condition. There are plenty of options for glamping and camping on this site as well as Motor Home pitches. I highly recommend this location.

Very chilled site.
A very chilled campsite set in beautiful scenery. My daughter loved the freedom to roam around this site and enjoyed petting the docile rescue dogs Izzy and Basil that live there. Breakfast in the house a nice touch with tea, coffee, cereal, toast, jam etc help yourself style. I didn’t venture to use the showers but there were plenty of toilets available and a sink for washing dishes in. I would definitely come and stay here again.

The camp had a beautiful backdrop with the hills all around and a horse pasture right next door. It was quaint quiet and down right magical! The owners were very friendly and accommodating! Would highly recommend.

Nearby attractions

The clue is in the name – West Highland Way Campsite is on the West Highland Way, a long distance walking route. It provides a well-signposted way to get out and explore from the campsite – even if you are not tackling the whole thing. It’s also on the John Muir Way and within the estate that the campsite is situated on there are some rhododendron trees that John Muir himself, a Scottish-American naturalist, planted on site in the 19th century. They’re in bloom in May and June. The estate is also home to the Glengoyne Distillery (two miles) where you can enjoy a tour and tasting and Strathblane Falconry (also two miles). Hilton Park Golf Club and Carbeth Fishery are also within three miles. The edge of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is less than 10 miles away with the shores of Loch Lomond itself about 12 miles away and RSPB Loch Lomond nine miles from the campsite.

Food and drink

A continental breakfast is included in your pitch fee and available in the clubhouse cafe each morning. Free tea and coffee are also available all day. Food is available to buy at other times of the day too, including evening meals, so there’s little need to go elsewhere but if you fancy a trip to the local pub, try The Beech Tree Inn four miles up the road towards Loch Lomond. Closer to home, Strathblane (just over a mile) has a small shop and a coffee shop too.
