The campsite is a great natural environment for groups to enjoy, but there are endless possibilities for things to do. Have a look at the details of what there is to do on site and out and about in the local area. Of course, you’re also welcome to bring your own equipment on site, such as mobile abseiling, crazy golf, assault courses, hire bubble football and so on. There’s plenty of space!
We have a games hut containing a range of equipment including:
A full list can be found here
Plus a number of activities to encourage team work.
Of course, some of the best activities the campsite has to offer on site are the simplest;
Stargazing: the campsite is an area of limited light meaning that the stars are “out of this world”
Wide Games: Due to the size and security of the site, wide games and treasure hunts are great- even more fun with a torch at night!
Outdoor Cooking: On the campsite we have fire places available for open cooking, and the opportunity to hold a campfire under the stars is one not to be missed.
Gartocharn Quiz – coming soon
The following suppliers are able to bring activities to the site & run them for you instead of you taking your group to them.
Coming Soon – contact the adventure team for more information
If you feel like getting offsite, there’s lots to choose from near & further afield.
The village of Gartocharn has a shop and play area which are within easy walking distance, great for a scavenger or treasure hunt on the way there! The site is also only a short walk from the Loch where a pebble beach awaits (but no swimming in the Loch is permitted).
Auchengillan Scout Camp is approx. 15 mins and offers many activities. For smaller groups the team will come and collect you by minibus.
For those wanting to explore further the campsite makes an ideal base for exploring the National Park whilst Glasgow and Stirling are within travelling distance.
Duncryne Equitation & Trekking Centre run by Mari-Claire Doyle is close by and groups of 6 can be accommodated at each time.
Duncryne Hill affectionately known as ‘The Dumpling’ is available to walk if leaders have the necessary walking qualifications. Contact your local Outdoor Adviser if you are unsure what these are.
RSPB Loch Lomond is close to site and can be contacted for activities.
The site is 10 minutes by car from the loch side town of Balloch so why not visit Loch Lomond Shores?
Loch Lomond Shores offers outdoor and indoor activities including canoeing, pedalos, Bird of Prey, Segway’s, high ropes course.
The Sea Life Centre @ Loch Lomond might offer you the chance to bring starfish to your event!
