Frank and Susan run a nice B&B with their two dogs (who are kept out of the way, so no worries if you don't like dogs). We got there late and got a nice, clean room. Two beds, very comfortable and tea and biscuits included (help yourself, waterboiler in the room etc).
The shower had vet little pressure, but it was fine, the bathroom very clean and there were complimentary soaps and body lotions in there as well.
Frank was very knowledgeable and gave us severly maps, not only of the area, but also one over where we were going the next day. He also lent us a DVD with history of Loch Lomond and scenery, tips on where to go etc. I think we had an hours conversation with him all together and ended up anriking a place he recommended to our travel route (which didn't dissapoint, by the way)
We ordered a cooked breakfast which was good, but could choose from other things as well. After the ther guests had left the dining room I got to meet the dogs too ;-)
All in all a very homely and cosy place, run by warm, lovely people. Location is perfect, main road through Balloch, 5 min walk from the trail station. They only have room for about 2 cars though, so check this out before you order,
