It's a long time since there were any toilet facilities there - 15 years? The "new" car park is on the opposite side of the road (west) and slightly lower down than the old one that had the visitor centre. There are public loos back down in Killin and over in Glen Lyon, but nothing in between.

- can I park overnight,
- how much does it cost
- can I pay by card (or better to bring coins)?

My question was with regard to being able to park there overnight and how much it costs to park.

Officially, it costs £3, or free for NTS members.
I suspect that overnight parking is tolerated. to get an official answer to your questions, you can contact the ranger direct.

£3 a day to park or free if a member of NTS (or regular NT).
I can't remember if the parking meter takes coins/ cards etc but I dare say National Trust Scotland may be able to tell you.
For overnight parking, I don't know what the deal is as I've only been for day trips. There is a small amount of parking after the NTS car park where you should be able to park overnight but that might be occupied by diggers as there are some major repairs to the road starting 9th May for 4 weeks.

Probably worth contacting them directly and asking, not least to check areas to camp even in a Bivvy as I know that there're lots of conservation issues at Ben Lawers - it has incredibly diverse flora & fauna and they don't want people straying far from the paths for that reason.
