Places to Visit

Balloch Village

Balloch is picturesque village known as the "gateway to the highlands". It is located directly at the Southern end of Loch Lomond and it is an ideal touring location with Glasgow being only Loch Lomond Highland Games45 minutes away on the regular electric train service from the local station. Balloch is a small village but being a tourist centre it has several good restaurants, hotels and bars where you can sample the local food and drink as well as dining Italian, Indian or Chinese style.

Trossachs National Park

The Trossachs and Breadalbane mark the spot where the Highlands and Lowlands meet. Much of this picturesque area lies within the boundaries of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.The Trossachs hills mark the dividing ‘Highland Line’ and, though its peaks may be humbler than those of its namesake, the Trossachs green uplands still dwarf the Lowland plain to the south.The gateways to this startling landscape, rich in mythology and folklore, are the villages of Callander and Aberfoyle.

Loch Lomond Seaplanes

During your visit you can even arrange a flight on the local seaplane service, which takes off from the Loch just North of the village of Luss. The image below is courtesy of the Loch Lomond seaplanes website and it is not taken on a Caribbean beach. This is actually Loch Lomond.

River Leven

The River Leven (Uisge Leamhna in Gaelic) is a stretch of water in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland, flowing from Loch Lomond in the North to the River Clyde[1] in the South. The total length of the river is approximately six miles and is very popular with salmon and sea trout anglers, trying to catch one of these migratory fish going up to Loch Lomond.
