Surrounded by the beauty of woodland gardens and the magnificent Cowal Hills, Glendaruel Caravan and Camping Park is a quiet and secluded place for your holiday. The park’s tranquil atmosphere is the ideal setting in which to unwind.
Park staff members are eager to help you plan your activities and suggest outings. Glendaruel’s goal is to provide Scottish hospitality and the best personal service.
The park has consistently earned top awards from the Scottish Tourist Board as well as the British Holiday Parks Grading Scheme, showing they are the premier park in Cowal. Glendaruel has won the Scottish Thistle Award for Customer Care.
At the park you can sit back and enjoy the beautiful woodlands as well as the diversity of bird and wildlife. You can also take pleasant walks in the scenic glens and hills. It is possible to go fly fishing for salmon and sea trout on the Ruel. You may also go cycling on safe and quiet roads. If you don’t have a bike they are available for hire at Glendaruel. There are also nature and history trails to see.
