Wherever you are in Scotland, you are never far away from one of our magnificent Scottish castles or ruins. The Scots began building castles around 1200 AD, and they constructed some of the greats over the next 200 years. So, here is our pick of the best castles and palaces near Loch Lomond. Great for all the family to visit during a stay at Loch Lomond Waterfront.
Outstanding location'The location is outstanding - right on the edge of Loch Lomond with private water frontage and beaches. As a location for exploring, again this rates very highly. We easily accessed central Glasgow by train from nearby Balloch and also explored Stirling (particularly the castle and Wallace memorial), the Falkirk Wheel and even Perth and Pitlochry by car. It is a very peaceful place, which can only be disturbed on occasion by your neighbours but with the Slumber Charter in place, we had absolutely no problems overnight.'
