Everything we needed here, so many thanks.  Great location for getting around – we loved the Loch Katrine area.

Had a very good meal in the Lomond Arms in Luss.  If you have a dog with you, the place to go is the Balloch Castle Country park – lovely walks.  A new Waitrose store and cheap petrol station in Helensburgh on the far east edge of town next to the new Academy.
