Loch Lomond, backed by the wooded slopes of Ben Lomond, is the setting for this attractively furnished timber holiday lodge set within Scotland’s first National Park. Located in a private park of 38 properties, it has direct access to the shoreline jetty (boat launching, booked through the hotel). Pleasure cruises are available from the nearby village of Balmaha. There are plenty of challenges for walkers in the area; the 92 mile West Highland Way passes alongside the loch, and runs from Milngavie to Fort William, while the route up Ben Lomond offers scope to ’Munro Baggers’. Within easy driving reach are Stirling, Inverary Castle, Loch Lomond shores and the lovely Trossachs area. The loch’s surroundings have easy walking and the water near the shore offers swimming in warm weather. Further afield, Balloch Castle Country Park covers 200 acres with nature trails, guided walks and views of the loch and the castle, built in 1808 and including a visitor’s centre. There is no shop on the site but a seasonal one is 3 miles away, and Drymen, 11 miles, has a range of small shops. Rowardennan Hotel/pub, 200 yards, offers a warm welcome and good food around the year.
