There’s plenty to do in Balmaha, from short walks and steep climbs with great views to boat trips and island exploration. If you’d like to learn more about the village and the surrounding area, pop into the National Park Visitor Centre in the car park and get first hand explanations from one of our Rangers.
Here’s some ideas:
By car: From Glasgow, follow the A81 to Milngavie and then follow signs for Drymen. In Drymen village, turn left on to B837 for Balmaha. From Edinburgh, take the M9 westwards and at Stirling, take the junction 10 on the A84, which will continue on to the A811; in Drymenvillage, turn left on to B837 for Balmaha.
By public transport: From Glasgow, take a train to Balloch (trains run from Glasgow Queen Street twice per hour and take 50 minutes) and switch to the 309 bus to Balmaha (leaves 25 minutes after the train arrives, from the nearby Balloch Bus station just across the bridge opposite the gates to Balloch Country Park).
