Loch Lomond Shores is a stunning visitor destination set on the southern tip of Loch Lomond. With views up the Loch to Ben Lomond, the scenery is amazing. Come for the day and visit our lovely shops, our great Aquarium, Bird of Prey Centre, Aerial Adventure Course, Adventure Golf and have lunch or refreshments in one of our eateries, or simply let the kids enjoy our playpark whilst you sit back and relax. If you want to get even more active then you can hire bikes, boats, canoes, Segways, quadricycles or just sit back on a loch cruise or waterbus and let someone else do the hard work.

Visited Loch Lomond Shores for a walk and look around the shops. Visited Jenners and the Thortons Cafe. Lovely scenic venue. Would recommend place for young families as they have a great wee play park and a train that goes around in the Summer months.

The drive along the loch is very beautiful, through the forest (trees etc.). Plenty of places to stop and enjoy the loch. Very nice views and the water is so lovely and clear. Nice place to have picnics or just relax.

I like to visit the opposite side of the Loch as it is usually quitter and has a nice view. It is the perfect place to sit on the stony shore and relax in the sunshine. You regularly see hikers walking past. It is a nice day out. I would recommend going for a few hours as it is an... More

We came across this attraction accidentally after visiting the Hill House and driving along the banks of Loch Lomond. It seemed a convenient place to stop for a cup of tea and the leaflet suggested that there were some good shops eg Jenners. Admittedly it was Easter Saturday, so busy, but it was late afternoon and we were able to... More
