“Great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Fantastic day out with a toddler.

We all had a great time - the trip on the train was fun and the shops were good.

Loads of space and very safe for young ones.

Cleanest toilets in the West of Scotland!

“Good Shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

I have visited Loch Lomond Shores on a few ocassions. I have taken visitors from overseas twice because of the shopping and other attractions here, ie the Maid of the Loch and the sails on Loch Lomond.
Good place to shop. Jenners can be pricey but has but stocks some unusual and interesting goods. I enjoy looking at the paintings in the gallary area. There is a shoe section and also outdoor activity clothing. The shops just go on and on finishing with an outlet store.
This is a pleasant place to shop at leisure and plenty of parking. There are places to eat, childrens play area, walks and picnic area.

“Variety of attractions for everyone, but disappointing cafe!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

This is a really great little place, lots of shops to have a wander, great childrens play area and views of the Loch. Boat rides and small beach, but didn't try these out.

Went during summer holidays and there were interesting things on for the children to be entertained.

Went for drink and icecream in Cafe on the Loch - extremely expensive and staff who really didn't seem to want to be there! There were 2 other cafes in the shopping area so next time we will try one of those.

Really good toilets and family facilities in main entrance.

A good few hours.

“Cafe on the loch, an excuse to take your money!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012 via mobile

Bought 2 lattes at the cafe on the loch, they could only at best be described as tasting like dishwater! We also ordered a couple of milkshakes for the children, 2 scoops of ice cream which were then so overfilled with milk that the girl have enough left to make half another one. Her manner was unfortunate also, only managing to utter the charge. Very disappointed, considering a seemingly prestigious venue.
