From the town of Helenburgh with it's grand houses walk into the hills and enjoy vast views over Loch Lomond.
Helensburgh is known for its grand houses and in particular for the Hill House, an icon of design created by renowned Art Deco designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh. If you have time, a visit to the house is well worthwhile before you set off on your journey.
Once in the hills enjoy fabulous sweeping views of your next destination, the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, shimmering against the backdrop of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Descend to Balloch, and perhaps take time this evening for a stroll alongside the water or if you arrive in the afternoon, take an optional paddle steamer or boat trip out onto the loch.
