Although “wild camping” is always an option, this must be carried out responsibly and appropriate sites may be hard to come by, especially in the more settled southern sections of the route between Balloch and Garelochhead.   Camping is more of an option in the more remote sections of the Three Lochs Way, but common sense dictates that extra care be taken within the Garelochhead Training Area where there is the slight possibility of misunderstandings arising, perhaps at 3am when you are disturbed by soldiers on a night exercise. Consequently if you intend camping there we recommend you inform the training area first by telephoning them on 01436 810369.
