The bonnie bonnie banks o’ Loch Lomond on the doorstep and the action-packed city of Glasgow 17 miles away… a stay at award-winning Lomond Woods Holiday Park should prevent altercations between you and the other half if one’s a wildlife wanderer and the other’s a city slicker. (Be both, we say: it’s more fun and more harmonious.)
Set in hills and woodland on the southern edge of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, Lomond Woods has picked up regular accolades from VisitScotland including Best Park in Scotland and the Thistle Award for Customer Care. It’s family-run by the friendly Wood family and is used by guests for peaceful getaways, activity-filled weeks and as a base for sightseeing and shopping in Glasgow. Or, again, do the lot: you’ll even find Balloch train station within a few minutes’ walk with trains to Glasgow every half an hour, so no arguments either about who’s driving on a day trip…
The tourer and motorhome pitches in Lomond Woods’s landscaped grounds are numbered and come with 10 or 16-amp electric hook-up. All have access to the park’s heated amenities: loos and showers, launderette and a washing-up area, kept to spotless standards by the dedicated team.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

The park is 17 miles north-west of Glasgow and easy to find.
From the south, follow the M8 Glasgow Airport signs and also the Loch Lomond signs as you approach the city.
Continue on the motorway past the airport and follow the Erskine Bridge signs.
Cross the Erskine Bridge and take the A82 Crianlarich road to Balloch.
There are signs on all main approaches to Balloch on the A811. Turn left at McDonalds, and the park is 100 yards on the left, across from the entrance to Loch Lomond Shores.
The Loch Lomond Park Centre is just over five miles from Loch Lomond Holiday Park and is the place to start for info and ideas about what to do in Scotland’s first national park. Watery activities include boating, waterskiing, canoeing and fishing; on land, active types can try climbing, hiking, biking and hacking on the ten horse-riding paths to the park’s east, and golf at several acclaimed local courses.
If you need a bit of help getting around, the Loch Lomond Park Centre also has extensive info on all-abilities activities for land and water: a wheelie boat for fishing and boating at the Lake of Menteith Fisheries, and the wheelchair accessible riverside paths at Callander Meadows are just two.
Pick up a loch cruise from Sweeney's Cruises in Balloch on the Loch Lomond Holiday Park doorstep, or go on to the historic village of Luss and its visitor centre and museum at Purdie’s. The famed wildlife haven and wallabies of Inchcailloch Island – yes, wallabies; there’s a colony here – can be reached from Balmaha on the ferry or your own hired boat, or from Luss three times a day from April to October. Balmaha and Inchcailloch are both part of Loch Lomond Nature Reserve with more wildlife spotting and woodland walking trails; Balmaha has a car park, loos and visitor services.
For urbanites, Loch Lomond Shores Visitor Centre at Balloch is a good stop for shops, restaurants and outlets like antique and craft shops; there’s also a SEA Life aquarium and the newly built Loch Lomond Bird of Prey Centre to bribe the kids with (or take them to Xscape Braehead to the south for rock climbing, ‘snow’ slopes, cinema and aerial adventure).
More into museums? There are many to meander around in this part of the world, especially in Glasgow (our faves are The Tenement House and the Hunterian), while for castles and historic houses there are stately piles all around Loch Lomond, Stirling, Glasgow and Argyll. Balloch Castle is two miles from the holiday park, Stirling Castle within twenty miles and Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Hill House seven miles away at Helensburgh.
