Loch Lomond - a beautiful location with lots to see and do
Loch Lomond is beautiful! I have been lucky enough to live and work in this amazing part of the country for over 13 years now and I never get fed up of the sight of Ben Lomond as I approach the Balloch iCentre in the morning. I took this picture at Loch Lomond Shores
in Balloch...it's only a ten minute walk from my work to this stunning view!!!!!
Loch Lomond can easily be reached by public transport from Glasgow, and by car:Trains
depart from Glasgow Queen Street train station (or Glasgow Central on a Sunday) every 30 minutes for Balloch Central and the journey to Balloch takes around 50 minutes. The West Highland Line also stops off at Arrochar & Tarbet Station and Ardlui at the northern end of the Loch.
First Bus (1 and 1A) operate regular services to Balloch although the train is usually the quickest option. Scottish Citylink
(services for Oban, Fort William/Skye and Campbeltown) also run along the western shore of Loch Lomond stopping on the A82 at various points along the way. Local buses depart from Balloch for the villages of Drymen/Balmaha (bus 309) and Luss (bus 305). You can also plan your journey around Loch Lomond using the handy Traveline Scotland
By Car, Loch Lomond is connected by the A82 from the north and south, and by the A811 from Stirling.
