Balloch was just the most beautiful town. I agree with Sarahlou70 that the drive through the housing is deceiving and once you drive in the farm gates............well it... More

There's a double room with a small room next to it and a bathroom connected... More

The farm is a lovely BndB, located just on the outskirts of Balloch, within 20 mins walk to the main train station. Sheila and George are wonderful hosts that will make you feel welcomed and at home.
