I'm pretty sure we stayed there one night Bill and never again mate, Itinerant heaven. Oh and it was so windy that night we saw a toilet seat fly through the air and hit another motorhome. People were pulling in then driving straight back out.

Very tight driving that part of the road Bill....Tourist rates!!!! .Luss c&cc site is members only. There is a site at Arrochar that will be quite cheap within walking distance to hotels pubs and restaurants etc
It is not too far away from where your talking about. If I was staying in these parts i would choose Arrochar.

If you are thinking of going to Luss make sure you say you are at least 7.5m long and have an awning when you book. We didn't and got the worst pitch we have ever come across totally under trees and with no space to sit out yet paid the same as everyone else on hardstanding. The stewards would not allow us to move even though when we arrived there were many empty pitches. We asked the following morning but still would not let us move but gave us our money back for the two nights we had not used. The problems of having a van conversion at Luss. Discrimination I suggested to the C&CC they disagreed but stated they allocate pitches to the size of the Motorhome!!
We will not be renewing our membership.

We usually Wildcamped on the loch side car park by the tarbert turnoff !! Toilets there and a hotel !
By far the bezt out of the wildcamping spots. You are also right beside the boat trips and cycle hire if you are feeling fit.
We stopped here 2 weeks ago and the toilets were opened all night.

We are normally out and about, sometimes in the area but staying home this weekend. If you need to top up your batteries or whatever you are welcome to park on my driveway for a night if you are passing Glasgow. Enjoy your time in Scotland :)

We stopped overnight at Luss camp site - worst experience for a while - steer well clear if you want piece and quiet, we turned up last Friday evening and walked into the reception to be greeted with a sweet FA - not even a smile could have been given off these two miserable sods who were running the place, the site was more or less empty (about 10 mixed MH an caravans) stuck us near the front of the site which we wasn't that bothered about but the site was a decent size - the trouble kicked off about 9pm - very loud music from the hotel next door, we could hear it over the TV and it showed no sign of stopping, at about 10:30 we decided to unhitch the EH and move to the far end of the site, now that was great ! Next morning little Hitler was around "why have you moved" - you should have come and informed me blah blah blah, yea i am sure you would have cracked a smile at 11pm me knocking on your door - I hate it when sites do not mention that there may be loud music played until 12pm - which he openly admitted to afterwards it is a very regular occurrence - NOT A RECOMMENDED SITE !

Our experience of Scotland last week was a very disappointing one to be honest, we were both so looking forward to our trip to Scotland:D and it turned out to be one of our worst trips - I think we just had bad luck from the off to be honest - weather was so bad at loch ness the wind lifted a big static off its bricks and moved it while the owners were still inside, it rained - poured it down at times every day of the 5 days we stayed, bad mannered people (mainly English may i add) - apart from a rude waitress at Moffat, arrogant cashier at Fort Augustus - we ended up coming away early and stayed a few nights around the Lake District:) Maybe another time we may try again when the sun shines and more people are smiling than frowning(y)
On another note i did spot a Funsters MH at Loch Lomond parked on the drive (House was up for sale) opposite the visitor center (y)
