Overview

Loch Lomond Shores is a stunning visitor destination set on the southern tip of Loch Lomond. With views up the Loch to Ben Lomond, the scenery is amazing. Come for the day and visit our lovely shops, our great Aquarium, Bird of Prey Centre, Aerial Adventure Course, Adventure Golf and have lunch or refreshments in one of our eateries, or simply let the kids enjoy our playpark whilst you sit back and relax. If you want to get even more active then you can hire bikes, boats, canoes, Segways, quadricycles or just sit back on a loch cruise or waterbus and let someone else do the hard work.

Nice place with a range of shops/cafes/restaurants. Facilities are nice and clean, the only downside being too many out of control dogs. Nice stroll over to Balloch Castle and beyond.More

Small shopping arcade with generally up market shops. Interesting farmers' market on 1st/3rd sundays. Picturesque setting and plenty of parking. Maid of the Loch free visitor attraction worth a visit whilst there

We were travelling and decided to stop in here for a break. It is a nice place for a wander and for small children but there isn't much of interest. If you fancy a coffee and some information, stay around balloch itselfMore

Hello there. We am really looking forward to staying at Lomond Woods over New Year & being able to take a wander to Loch Lomond Shores. I presume things will be closed on New Years Day but what about Hogmanay? Many thanks, Caroline

Hi we are coming for a holiday at the end of the month. We will have our little dog with us, which places are we allowed to take him, eg, boats, eating places etc. He is very small and can be carried. Thank you.
