About Balloch Railway Station
Balloch Railway Station is the main train station serving the small town of Balloch, West Dunbartonshire, Scotland. It’s a terminus for the North Clyde Line, and managed by Abellio Scotrail. It’s one of the youngest stations in Britain, having been opened in 1988, replacing the older Balloch Central Station.
Discover Loch Lomond
Loch Lomond is the single largest body of inland water in Britain, and marks the joining of two very different sides of Scotland. Here, you’ll be able to walk along the famous “bonnie banks” of the loch, traverse the Trossachs National Park and see the impressive promenade of Helensburghs. Balmaha Harbour is a hugely popular spot for watersports on the loch, while Loch Lomond Golf Club boasts a course that has been used in international golf tournaments. With miles of natural beauty and quaint towns and villages surrounding it, you’ll have no problem creating some wonderful memories in the Loch Lomond area.
Balloch Castle and County Park
Balloch County Park boasts incredible, sweeping views over Loch Lomond, and 200 acres of parkland including nature trails and beautiful walled gardens. Though this popular green space has been attracting visitors since the reign of Queen Victoria, it was only designated as a country park in 1980. Though the castle is now derelict, it certainly makes for some great photo opportunities!
