There are a number of commercial campsites within reasonable distance of the route. We recommend these to paddlers wishing to guarantee an overnight camping spot by booking ahead, and for groups that are too large to use the Canalside Informal Camping Spots or to wild camp. Please contact the sites to make your bookings before you travel.

From late May 2016, Scottish Canals' informal camping spot at Laggan Locks will be removed and will be replaced by 6 chargeable tent pitches. These will cost £6 per night for adults and £4 per night for children, and will be available on a first come, first served basis, payable in cash at the new cafe opening on site. Advance booking won't be available for the tent pitches but will be possible for the two camping bothies on site : http://bit.ly/1IQlcgC and http://bit.ly/21jjmP0
