What an amazing place perfect base for us and very welcoming.

Visited many areas of Loch Lomond, Luss, Balloch and love Balmaha. Walked up Conic Hill which was a challenge but amazing views across the loch. Ferry over to Inchcailloch island which was lovely giving different views of the loch (food at The Royal Oak was lovely).
Helensburgh was great to visit and amazing gelato at Vanilla and stroll along the front.

Perfect spot, will definitely revisit.
