We were in Scotland for 12 days and this was by far the best place we stayed at in terms of hospitality. Alison made us feel at home with customized breakfast based on our likes and dislikes. The kids loved playing in the yard and we used to sit outside the B&B and enjoy the summer nights. We stayed in... More

The en-suite for the first 3 nights was comfortable, neat, clean and modern. The next 3 nights we were in the more cramped but still very acceptable converted attic-... More

Stayed two nights for a wedding in Balloch. It was like returning to see old friends . Alison and James were as always so helpful. You know you are in the right place when after your long drive up, You are welcomed with open arms and several ice cold beers are presented to you while you sit in the sunshine.... More

Very friendly, clean, great breakfast! Will certainly come back again! Ideal when heading up north, just for one night stay or when exploring The Trossachs or Loch Lomond surroundings. Balloch might not be that attractive but who cares!

The Woodvale is a lovely B&B in the centre of Balloch. The location is ideal, within walking distance to bars and restaurants as well as the train station. The family room we stayed in was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious with large portions and plenty of toast. Best of all though, our host Alison was so friendly... More
