Milarrochy Bay is a Camping and Caravanning Club site on the banks of Loch Lomond, Scotland.We've visited once, in March 2012
Sites don't come in much more idyllic locations than this one. It's situated directly on the eastern banks of Loch Lomond. This is less accessible than the western banks, but has the huge advantage that it's a lot quieter as a result.
The site management were very friendly. As with all C&CC sites, there's a mixture of grass and hardstandings, and a good mix of people in tents and caravans/motorhomes. Electric Hookups are available. We were pitched on hardstanding on a row that didn't directly front the loch, but the positioning of the pitches meant there was still an excellent view. There is a dog-walk, but we didn't use it, preferring to walk along the loch side.
At first we thought the toilet block disappointing, consisting as it did of a couple of showers/toilet cublicles, seemingly on a unisex basis. However, it soon became clear that this was actually a satellite block for a tent field, and the main block was well up to standard.
It's a surprisingly long way from Balloch to the site, and the last mile or so it along a road where two wide vehicles would struggle to pass. Not a great problem, but there is a very steep hill out of Balmaha where I was losing traction even on a dry day, so that could be an issue in inclement weather. As this road is so quiet, though, it makes an ideal place for a scenic cycle ride.
There's a convenience store in Balmaha, otherwise it's necessary to go to Balloch for any larger shopping.
Would we go back? Absolutely....indeed it's probably just about near enough to go for a weekend...
