Less than an hour's drive from Glasgow is the splendour of the "bonnie banks" of Loch Lomond.

In the shadow of Ben Lomond, Loch Lomond is Britain's largest expanse of fresh water and whether you walk, cycle or drive through the National Park or travel by boat, it offers some of Scotland's most breathtaking scenery.

The main town is Balloch and a visit to Balloch Castle and the nearby Aquarium are highly recommended.
