Charles Rennie Macintosh's world famous Hill House and Faslane Naval Base are both nearby.
    Balmillig is ideally placed for walkers or bikers exploring the Three Lochs Way and the new John Muir Way, both Scotland's Great Trails - they pass our door.

    Our lounge/conservatory is comfortably furnished and heated and has books and lots of information about the area. There is very pleasant walking immediately around Helensburgh and we are just a few minutes from the National Park boundaries with many more challenging routes.

    There is plenty of off street parking within the spacious and colourful garden which has a patio area where you can enjoy the summer annuals as well as the varied collection of shrubs, trees and herbaceous perennials selected to support wildlife as well as providing year round fragrance, floral and foliage interest.

    Balmillig is within easy walking distance of bus and train services, seafront, park, shops and restaurants.

    To be as 'green' as possible Balmillig is built to top energy conservation standards. The garden is wildlife friendly, we recycle plastics, paper etc., compost kitchen waste and have installed solar powered water heating.
