Places to visit in Scotland

Here are some ideas of destinations you might wish to visit on your tour from Loch Lomond. As we are located in central Scotland, both the north and south of the country are easily accessible and within a few hour’s drive. Please note, available locations vary depending on individual tour companies. 

South – Scottish Borders, Dumfries and Galloway

This area is in the far south of Scotland, near the border with England. You can reach the Scottish Borders or Dumfries and Galloway within two to three hours drive from our location in Balmaha, Loch Lomond. There are many lovely towns and villages to explore here, and wonderful attractions such as castles, manor houses, gardens and museums.

North – Scottish Highlands, Grampian

In contrast, you may choose to head north to the Scottish Highlands. A more mountainous, dramatic landscape. Again, this takes two to three hours of driving time and there is so much to see here. From the stunning beauty of Glencoe to the iconic Glenfinnan Viaduct. Inverness is the Highland capital and is a wonderful city, full of history and vibrancy. Or you could visit the Grampian region and beautiful Aberdeenshire. Aberdeen is a fantastic coastal city with impressive granite architecture and many great attractions.

Central – Strathclyde, Lothians, Tayside

Alternatively, you don’t have to go far from Loch Lomond to discover amazing places. In the central regions of Scotland you’ll find major cities such as Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Stirling. Along with quiet rural locations of breathtaking beauty. This is where the Highlands meets the Lowlands, so you’ll find a mix of landscapes, from rolling hills to towering mountains.

Your tour company may have set itineraries, but may also be able to put together a bespoke trip based on your preferences and interests. Find out more by choosing a tour company from the list above.


  • 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.'
