Achieves main purpose of keeping you off the main road, but lack of investment/imagination spoils what should be a real asset to the national park. Ok when quiet but would be hopeless when busy as too narrow.

We rode from Ballock to Luss. It is not a cycling path. You are right next to a very busy road and barely see the lake. Very disappointed.

Beautiful path for cycling and walking, following the west side of Loch Lomond. Lovely trails through wooded areas alongside more open paths with spectacular views of the Loch

Parked up in Luss in the large car park and cycled the path on the West Bank of the lockup to Tarbet. It’s 8 miles each way, mostly flat. Good points - lovely views of the lake, mostly good surface and no riding on the road. The middle section is best, as it is is on the now disused old road and so is wide but right next to the lake. Plenty of small shingle beaches to stop at. Bad points - you are never out of ear shot of the main road and at times are cycling right next to it. The last 1.5 miles is on a pavement right next to the road with poor surface.

This cycle path has been designed with tourists and visitors in mind rather than the serious cyclist. With beautiful landscapes around every corner and many secluded beaches & inlets this is a great day out for a walk or a cycle. Following the old road on the banks of Loch Lomond you intermittently hear the new road traffic as you travel through quiet stretches of trees and loch side beaches. With exit and entry points at several car parks along the route you can enjoy sections at a time rather than experiencing the full route from Balloch to Tarbet. There are ferry points at Luss and Tarbet throughout the summer months which can take you to the eastern shore of Loch Lomond and allow you to continue your cycle or walk in more beautiful landscapes as you head toward The Trossachs. As mentioned previously the route from Tarbet to Arrochar and back to Helensburgh includes a section of The Three Lochs Way and is also an amazing day out.
