Balloch is an enchanting village on the south-west shores of Loch Lomond and easily accessible from Glasgow.
Balloch is often referred to as the gateway to the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. It has excellent road and rail links from Glasgow which make it a popular place to visit for a day trip or longer break and a good place to start exploring the National Park.
Loch Lomond Shores is a commercial development housing retail outlets and the National Park Gateway Centre, where you can learn all about the famous loch and its surrounds. There are also a number of woodland trails that head out from the National Park Gateway Centre and you can even hire a canoe, kayak or bike to explore further. The restored paddle steamer, the Maid of the Loch, is in residence here.
