Loch Lomond’s main tourist office is in the centre of Balloch.

Maid of the Loch

  Balloch is home to the paddle steamer "Maid of the Loch" which is currently being refurbished and it is hoped that it will eventually recommence sailing on the loch.

Launched in Coronation Year 1953 for service on Loch Lomond, Maid of the Loch is the last paddle steamer to be built in Britain, a direct descendant of the first loch paddle steamer of 1818.
