A recent arrival has been the Little Camping Lodge: a cosy wooden bolthole that can sleep up to four and is a great wet-weather option, with the owners planning to pop up another couple of lodges over the next few years. More conventional campers can use the campers’ kitchen-cum-dining-shelter.
A variety of paths snake their way into the thick web of surrounding forests, with a large grass field also on hand for wee ones to run around in, and a couple of swings and a bijou playground. Cowal itself is not well-known, even among most Scots, so its quiet roads tend to be ideal for cycling and hiking, while the surrounding waters dish up a rich bounty of seafood that can be enjoyed in the local restaurants and pubs.
The campsite owner says
Trees, trees and yet more glorious life-affirming, oxygen-pumping trees are the main attraction at this remote, 22-acre escape on Argyll’s sleepy Cowal Peninsula. Glendaruel sits in a hollow at the foot of its eponymous glen, shrouded by woodland. The magnificent collection of mature trees and wildlife about the place makes Glendaruel family-friendly facilities and glorious location. Enjoy outdoor activities from walking, fishing and wildlife-watching in the Glen to fantastic cycle routes, sailing and water sports close by. Glendaruel is perfect for families with young children, offering outdoor freedom. It also suits those who wish to enjoy the peace or explore and experience the food, art and culture of “Argyll’s Secret Coast”.
