Camping at By the Way

For CAMPING please telephone or email us.

Please note:  We only take one or two man tents, nothing bigger than that.  If we have had a lot of rain and the ground is water logged, we cannot take any campers.  Please try and call ahead if the weather is bad, so that we can try and accommodate you in the hostel or huts.

We have a several areas within the campsite that are ideally suited to backpacking and hiking tents. If you’re walking the West Highland Way, you’ll be glad to know that it passes right by our campsite (you actually walk past the front window of our Hostel).  So you’ll know that as soon as you reach Tyndrum, your walking is done and you can relax for the rest of the day!

If you are walking and carrying your tent, it is probably lightweight and small. In good Scottish summer weather (torrential rain), cooking, eating and sleeping in a tent can be a bit uncomfortable, not to mention damp.  We have on-site facilities for campers, including:

  • Indoor pot washing area.
  • Microwave, kettle and 2 ring hot plate.
  • Commercial washing machine and dryer.
  • Toilets and hot showers.
  • Bike store.
  • Drying room for all your outdoor clothes and boots.
  • Free Wi-Fi.
  • Check out time is 10.00am.
  • We do not allow BBQs or fires of any description.

Please note:  By the Way is a quiet site.  We cater mainly for outdoor enthusiasts.  Therefore we ask that all customers keep noise to a minimum.  We have a “no noise” policy from 10.00 pm.   We would like everyone to enjoy their stay with us, and we feel that consideration for others is very important

PLEASE NOTE:  It is advisable to book ahead for camping as we are frequently full during the summer season.
Also please be sure to read our booking conditions.
