I stayed in the Glenfern after taking part in the Kiltwalk (26.2 mile walk from Hampden to Loch Lomond) and although I'm from Glasgow decided to stay over in Balloch to enjoy the celebrations after the walk.
I'm glad I chose to stay in the Glenfern as my friend & myself received a very warm welcome from Frank & Susan on arrival.
We stayed in room 3 which was a very nicely decorated twin and it was very well equipped with everything we needed after a long day of walking.
The Glenfern is only a 5 minute walk away from Loch Lomond shore & as it's based on the main road in Balloch you're close to all the pubs & restaurants that Balloch has to offer without having to walk for miles (Which was a bonus for us the Sunday that we stayed)
We both found the Glenfern to be spotless, the owners have 2 small dogs but until you see the dogs you really woulnd't know they're there.
Breakfast on Monday morning was great, after our long day on Sunday & a few beverages to celebrate our achievement on Sunday night, a cooked breakfast was just what the doctor ordered to get us going on Monday, everything was great, I opted for some bacon & egg with toast & really couldn't falt any of it.
I would definately recommend staying in the Glenfern if you're looking for a B&B that's close to everything Balloch has to offer, Frank & Susan will make you feel very welcome & at home & the location is perfect.
