General

  • Spectacular scenery in a peaceful place
  • On the shores of Gareloch
  • Bar, trampolines, climbing frames and soft play area

Seeking scenic sanctuary in Scotland? The hidden haven of Rosneath Castle Caravan Park on the shores of Argyll’s Gareloch is the site for you: even the name Rosneath comes from the Gaelic for sanctuary (‘Rosneimhidh’) and the area as a whole is known as the Green Isle, with spectacular scenery all around and the Argyllshire mountains rising in the distance (have a squint at the site pics to see).

Rosneath covers 57 acres on Gareloch’s southern shore and has been set up to suit all sorts: parents might like to seek sanctuary while the kids bounce around the trampolines, swings, climbing frames and football pitch (smaller sorts have their own soft play area to keep them occupied too); there’s fishing on site and a Rod & Reels fishing shop, and those who want to make a bit of a splash can take professional watersports tuition at nearby Loch Long from July to September.

The park also has a grocery shop, launderette, games room and the on-site Castle Isle bar, serving lunch, dinners and takeaways daily as well as breakfasts on Saturdays and Sunday mornings. Singers, tribute bands and other acts are on hand for family-friendly entertainment during the summer season and school holidays.

For sanctuary seekers who also like to shop, Rosneath Castle Caravan Park is around an hour’s drive from Glasgow (with a good helping of more spectacular scenery along the way), 15 miles from Helensburgh and neatly placed for Dunoon, Oban, and Stirling. The village of Rosneath and the town of Greenock are both close by for supplies.

Directions


From Glasgow
Follow the M8 to the Erskine bridge. After crossing the bridge follow the A82 towards Crianlarich, bypassing Dumbarton and Balloch on your way to Loch Lomond. Take the A814 to Garelochhead and then follow signs for the B833 to Kilcreggan. We are situated approximately a mile beyond Rosneath on the left-hand side.

From Inverness
Take the M9 to Stirling then follow the brown tourist route signs for Loch Lomond on the A811. Continue on the A811 to Balloch. Join the A82 and head north. Take the A814 to Garelochhead and then follow signs for the B833 to Kilcreggan. We are situated ­­approximately a mile beyond Rosneath on the left-hand side.

Local attractions

The park is perfectly placed for pretty much everything whatever your tastes, from attractions on the doorstep to day trips taking in distilleries, wildlife centres, castles and trekking around Loch Lomond and the west Highlands. The waters of Lunderstone Bay and Luss Bay are within ten miles – both worth a look, shorely?

Sticking within picnicking distance, walkers and cyclists will find several waymarked forest trails in the surrounding Rosneath Woodlands, where most visitors wood expect to see a variety of trees like grand firs, Scots pines and Norwegian spruces alongside the more common oak, birch and ash.

A three-mile shore walk runs from Rosneath to Kilgreggan; wander along to the pier from here to catch a ferry across the Clyde to Gourock for ice-cream and its open-air seafront swimming pool.

Head about 15 miles east to the town of Helensburgh, one of many of the shorter day trips around these parts and home of Hill House of Charles Rennie Mackintosh fame, probably his best known house and Helensburgh’s most visited attraction.

Hermitage Park and the river-front promenade of Kidston Park are sweet spots for more picnics, or take the West Highlands Line from Upper Helensburgh station through Arrochar, Tarbet and Crianlarich to Oban, Fort William and Mallaig for a scenic trip you can take photos of without worrying about your hands leaving the steering wheel.

Watery trips from Helensburgh include cruises to the steamer ports of Rothesay, Tighnabruaich, Largs, Dunoon and Millport, and a trip on the PS Waverley, the world’s last sea going paddle steamer sailing down the Clyde Estuary to the Kyles of Bute, the sea channel separating Bute from Argyll (cameras at the ready, natch). If you’re stopping off at Oban on the West Highland Line, the ‘gateway to the isles’ has a load of boats to take day trippers out around the tiny islands from here in the Firth of Lorn.

Elsewhere within 20–50 miles, Scottish highlights are in every direction from Rosneath: cruising on Loch Lomond within 20 miles; lush Loch Fyne and its oyster bar (a must, say we) within 30; Inveraray and the Duke of Argyll's castle 38 miles away; Glengoyne Distillery and its whisky tours within 32 and Stirling’s Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park 47 miles away.

Must see

  • Loch Lomond Park Centre (9.7 miles)
  • Paisley Abbey (17.4 miles)
  • Clydebuilt (Scottish Maritime Museum Braehead) (18.1 miles)
