Right across the street from the train station, I visited twice to get directions and train information. NIce gift shop. Lots of maps and brochures. Very kind and extra helpful staff.

“Visit to Balloch, Loch Lomond, and Luss Village.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

Visited the above 3 places today, and I must say that we had a thoroughly great time. The weather was glorious, which always helps. I must say that in all three place the cost of things was very reasonable, from food to ice cream. If other places in Scotland followed these examples, they would get more visitors. At Balloch a hot roll was £1.50, and the ice cream £1.20 for a large cone, if you have a few children these prices are quite manageable. I will no doubt return in the future for another visit. Well done The Trossach.

“A Good Introduction to Loch Lomond's Attractions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

The car parking is ample and the railway station not too far away. The centre is well signposted and has a modern and welcoming appearance. It has a wide range of tourist items for sale and is well staffed.

Part of the centre has been given over to a cafe and this has an outside area overlooking the loch.
