Balloch Castle Country Park

Parks & Gardens

Balloch Castle, Balloch, Dunbartonshire, G83 8LX

    Loch Lomond’s only country park commands impressive views over its waters, spanning 200 acres which include walled gardens, nature trails and guided walks.

    First recognised as a country park in 1980, it was originally developed in the early 19th century. Both the park and Balloch Castle were built by John Buchanan, a partner in the Glasgow Ship Bank.

    Though the castle now lies derelict, it was once the main visitor centre for the park, while also acting as the headquarters for the Countryside Ranger Service.

    Since the early 1990s Balloch Castle Country Park has hosted several major music events, including gigs from Oasis and R.E.M. which both attracted over 80,000 people to Loch Lomond.
