This Summer around Balloch
My wife and I want to visit Scotland, rather Balloch and Loch Lomond, from the 7th to the 21st of July and our "home base" will be Balloch.
As it is our first Scotland vacation, of course we have some questions:
How "warm" should our clothes be?
We want to do small hikes every day. Also like in places that can be reached by bus (we have no car). Are there places that can be easily reached by bus and then hike on site (3-4 hours)?
Are the Highland Games (July 14) recommended?
Where are the best photomotive around Balloch?
Are there picturesque castles around Balloch or from there by bus to reach?
I have much more questions....but :-)
