Stunning carvan and campsite on the banks of Loch Leven with epic mountain views.

Caolasnacon Caravan & Camping Park sits in an ideal spot just outside Kinlochleven, only a few miles from otherworldly Glen Coe, on the southern bank of Loch Leven. This site features 18 (6-person) static caravans, plus plenty of space for tents, campervans, and touring caravans with 36 electrical hook-up points. Given the space and natural drama, the well-equipped site rarely feels too crowded. You can fish, paddle or kayak straight from the site, and the owners are ultra-friendly too, with proprietor Patsy Cameron at the helm. Camp fires are allowed too, so make sure to pack a wee dram to enjoy by firelight late into the Highland night.

Food & Drink

The legendary Clachaig Inn (01855 811252) may infamously refuse to serve Campbells, but otherwise this is a welcoming Glen Coe pub amid epic mountain scenery.

Idyllic and stunning

This little hidden campsite is absolutely beautiful. If you time your arrival well, you can pitch right by the edge of the Loch. What an outstanding view to wake up too. Facilities were immaculate. No pre booking. No set pitches as such, EHU available even right by the Loch. Will most definitely be visiting again. Great place for walkers, stags out in the twilight, photographers dream place. Owners are lovely and very helpful. 10/10 for us.
