As above,,, cannot fault the site or Loch, we did 10 days last year,,,,, SPOT ON.

ONE DOWN SIDE, check your dates don't clash with a privately run youth group from Manchester who hire them self's and their gear out to POSH private schools.
They book the site for a week at the end of the English summer school holidays the one with the bank holiday in. They camp and sleep on one side ,,,,,, eat and make a lot of noise on the other.
One South Manchester School where there when we were, only down side for 7 days of the holiday .

Got a few days off work at the end of next week.
I heard on the weather forecast we are in for some more settled weather next week - fingers crossed!
If the weather gods are looking down on me I will head up to Millarochy Campsite Wednesday or Thursday next week for an overnight stay and Sib tour around the loch.
I'm about an hour and a half from the campsite so hope to get up there early doors make a full day of it and avoid the Glasgow rush hour.
Looking forward to it.
Thanks to those on here who posted the info that has convinced me to take the Sib on its first fresh water excursion.

Almost as local as me!

Other thing worth thinking about - the licience numbers - they will also sell you for about a fiver (well, it was a fiver when I registered) a plastic sheet perfectly sized to take the numbers & the year sticker. Well worth it if you don't want to stick the numbers to your toobs - just hang it off your grab lines (take some string / tie wraps with you) Once registered they will re- register you automatically by post, jsut retuen the form & a few days later your "this year" sticker appears in the post.

FWIW I have a set of waypoints (not exhauistive by any stretch of the imagination when it comes to shoreline things to do), but does give some "get out of jail" / trip guestimation potential. I think I posted it already, (.GPX file) but of not let me know if you think you could use it.

If you any files / maps relating to the loch I would be most grateful if you could pass it on to me.
I use an android tablet in a waterproof case as a chart plotter and use MX Mariner for coastal navigation.
I have downloaded a loch lomond area map to use offline on the tablet as a makeshift chart plotter.
The detail is not great but better than nothing.

Why not spend 12.00 (price last year when I bought mine) on a propper chart when you go to register?
Then you will know where all the hazzards are, speed restrictions, no wake zones etc.

Its easy to get caught out , plenty of hazzards .

Hi Bartiny was hoping to get something I could download onto the tablet.
If i can't get anything i will buy a map and use the GPS on the tablet in conjunction with said map.
Just wondering if there is a downloadable detailed loch map out there anywhere?
