About this Loch Lomond walking trail

First section:

Starting in Balmaha, you begin at the Oaktree Inn. Here you can park in a large car park just across the road. From here you meander around the bay by the Boat Yard, passing the Tom Weir statue along the way. As you come round the corner you pass ‘Passfoot Cottage’, originally an 18th-century toll house, before joining the West Highland Way.

Second section

From here this Loch Lomond walk follows a narrow winding path, which leads across an exciting steel bridge to get across a tiny bay beneath. And this is great fun for the kids, adding some sense of adventure. In fact this walk has much magic about it. As the path winds along it cuts along steep hillsides, finds lovely bays and curves through woodland. All following the famous shoreline of Loch Lomond.

Third section

Next, you come upon a lovely little beach. Great for having a paddle. And if your dog is with you, you can enjoy a game of fetch with them. Being a pebbled beach, why not check out your stone skimming skills? Furthermore, there is an abundance of wildlife to be spotted along the way.

Final section

From here you carry along and head into woodland. Here the path winds around the bay. If you fancy going off track here you can explore little hidden bays along the way. Finally, as you come round the last bend you follow the path along, ending up at Millarochy Bay.
