Let the Train Take the Strain

Linking south, west, and east shore locations like Balloch, Luss, Balmaha, Tarbet, Inversnaid and Rowardennan. A great way to visit Loch Lomond and experience the various locations around the loch!


Cameron House Reopening Update

Following the fire, which broke out at the category B listed building in December 2017, planning permission has been granted by National Park Authority officials to carry out restoration works at Cameron House.

A planning application was lodged in November 2018 to demolish and replace parts of the main hotel building, which was destroyed in the blaze.  Cameron House on Loch Lomond has embarked on a careful and sensitive restoration project which will see Cameron House Hotel, the leisure club, the Great Scots Bar and Cameron Grill remaining closed until early 2020. Lodge accommodation is available which can be booked by calling 0333 003 8557 or email reservations@cameronlodges.co.uk. For the latest Cameron House Hotel update, click here.


Lomond Banks - For or Against?

A storm is brewing on the banks of Loch Lomond. Theme park operator, Flamingo Land, has partnered up with Scottish Enterprise to turn the what was once the railway yards at Balloch, gateway to Loch Lomond and part of a former dye works into a new resort. In April, updated plans for the £30m leisure facility were presented to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Their application has provoked what is thought to be the most objections ever lodged in Scottish planning history - more than 55,000.

The plans include a 60-bedroom “aparthotel”, another 32-bedroom facility that the developers describe as “budget accommodation”, self-catering units and six private houses that are expected to sell for about £800,000 each. If approved, the development, known as Lomond Banks, is due to open in 2024 and would create almost 200 jobs.
