What's On Loch Lomond
On our doorstep to Lomond Woods is the Gateway to Scotland’s first National Park, where you can enjoy the wonders of some of Scotland’s finest scenery. Lomond Shores visitor center offers something for the whole family including a new aquarium, a variety of retail outlets and restaurants. By contrast, only 17 miles south of Lomond Woods is the vibrant, exciting city of Glasgow, easily reached by car, or, if you prefer, by train from Balloch station.
At Lomond Woods, we never forget that it is your holiday and we are here to help you make it an enjoyable and memorable experience. Once here, you will find so much to do and see, whatever your age and interest.
We also work with a number of local businesses to provide our guests with a range of local discounts to make your stay even more enjoyable.

Helensburgh Winter Festival

This year the festival will be another two days of family fun and festivity with something for all ages and purses. The festival is open from 10am-5pm on both days. The Festival will, once again, be centred in Colquhoun Square with a Festive Market offering a wonderful range of gifts and goodies to make your Christmas special.
Ghost Hunt Experience
The Hill House, Helensburgh
Whilst the building is fairly modern in its design do not be fooled as there have been many ghostly sightings. With tales of a ghostly gardener sharpening his tools and sightings of persons unknown who should not be present in the house it makes for a good start for a ghost hunt.
What is better to do at Christmas time than go for a skate on an open-air ice rink, come along to skate day and night with family and friends at Paisley's magical ice rink. Be sure to get your winter woolies on and grab the rest of the family to embrace the festivities on offer at Paisleys First Winterfest!
