Is this possible or is the whole shore private?

Well, technically, that may be slightly misleading. Scotland is a wonderful place for exploring because of its forward thinking access laws; those laws include the right to wild camp as part of responsible access. You should be aware though that those access rights only extend to people who access the land (or water) without an engine, so don't apply to RIBs (they do apply to small sailing boats, canoes, kayaks, walkers, cyclists, horse riders etc).

Camping on the islands of Loch Lomond may well be tolerated for rib users if you are responsible, but beware Camping on Loch Lomondside is a sensitive issue, with the stupidity of a small number resulting in new bylaws preventing camping on a large swathe of the East coast of the loch (outside designated sites). There is a desire amongst some to extend that ban to Inchmoan, Inchconnachan, Inchtavannach and Inchcruin. You may want to ask if you want to camp in areas (and/or times of year) when the sort of behaviour that is attracting attention is likely.

If you are going to the islands to camp then be responsible: go in small groups - not great gangs, clear up afterwards (including human waste), stay only for a short period (3 nights max), don't play music that disturbs everyone, keep fires under control, and bring your own fuel - don't chop the trees down.

Inchcailloch is a designated nature reserve. It does have a small campsite which must be prebooked. (Camping elsewhere is like to antagonise the rangers).

just wish it was a touch closer still, every time we've been over the last 30+ years we've had a great holiday, seem to remember even being buzzed by a Hercules, that made the Avons rock n roll
