The Loch Lomond Waterfront Lodges is a collection of holiday lodges based on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond near the picturesque village of Balmaha. Located in southern Scotland, only 20 miles from Glasgow or 30 miles from Stirling, the lodges sit within The Trossachs National Park. The surrounding highlands area, renowned for its breathtaking wooded glens, is home to a variety of wildlife including red deer, making it the perfect place to get up and close to nature and all its inhabitants.
Everything outdoorsy is heartily embraced. With plenty of decent footpaths and cycle trails, you can explore all that Loch Lomond has to offer. Adventure lovers can attempt to climb the craggy Ben Lomond Mountain, (3,196 feet of Munro), or the less adventurous can tackle the smaller Conic Hill, (which takes approximately one and a half hours), both of which afford spectacular views.
The lodge is perfect for a small family; there are two bedrooms upstairs, both of which have en-suites, ideal when travelling with teenagers. Each ensuite also has its own balcony, and it's wonderful to wake up to views of the loch.
We were booked into the diamond lodge, consisting of a spacious open plan living, kitchen and dining area, which fast became our favourite area to hang out in, thanks to its fabulous views. On the ground floor there is a WC complete with shower and a two-person steam cabin. Outside there's an outdoor dining area and a large jacuzzi with loch views, which we made full use of!
The local area
Given you're in the heart of the countryside, the focus really is on enjoying nature. However, if you want to head to town, it's only a scenic half hour's drive away.
Travelling further afield
There are a few options to explore the local area; you can go by foot or you can hire a car and drive from one end of the loch to the other. We recommend a visit to Luss, a picturesque village complete with stone cottages, a few small bistros and a cosy pub inn. Sadly, we didn’t get a chance to visit Killin, which is home to the Falls of Dochart, a dramatic waterfall, which is well worth a visit.
The location cannot be faulted, the scenery is second to none and the lodges are perfect for a family holiday.
