If you park your car at Balloch castle (free parking) you can do an easy walk along part of the shore of Loch Lomond and through the castle gardens. The paths are easy - no steep climbing or rough paths. the castle is not open to the public and is partly surrounded by fencing. I had a headache the last day of our holidays but we did not want to waste a day so decided to do a couple of gentle walks and get some fresh air. Along the shore you get wonderful views of the loch and surrounding mountains. We spent some time watching squirrels play in the castle gardens. I think that the gardens would get busy in the high season and weekends but when we were there it is quiet and peaceful.

Directions: Balloch castle is well signposted
