East coast of Loch Lomond

I would like to travel the east coast of Loch Lomond (Balmacha - Rowardennan) soon and I'm looking for some nice walks with views and places that all photographers love.

Any suggestions?  :)

    Hi @ScotlandTraveloholic. In the village of Balmaha there is a fantastic walk up Conic Hill. Conic Hill sits right on the Highland Boundry Fault line, and at the top you will get truly amazing views of Loch Lomond and its many islands. The walk to the top and back will take around 2-3 hours.

    Another great walk is on the island of Inchcailloch. Once in Balmaha you can get a ferry from Balmaha boat yard to take you the short distance across to the island. There are three different pathways to explore, and you may even spot some deer or Ptarmigan! You can spend at least half a day exploring the island.

    Three miles north of Balamha is Cashel Millennium Forest. There are 3 good walkways throughout the birchwoods each with varying degrees of terrain. 

    The West Highland Way follows the route from Balmaha to Rowardennen. This is a long distance footpath, and the link will give you more detail of the route and terrain for this section of the walk.

    The east side of Loch Lomond is a beautiful area to explore and you will be sure to have many places to capture the perfect photograph. Please do share your photos with us, it would be great to see them!  <3
