We stayed in Balloch and luckily right across the street were the helpful ladies at the Visitor Center. They provided us with advice and maps and brochures. Their advice was spot on.

Spa type packages in Balloch or within walking distance - My wife is currently in Balloch awaiting the birth of her newest grandchild. She takes a daily walk to Loch Loman Shores (that I do know), however I do not know the area at all and would like to know if there is any Spa within walking distance of Balloch? My wife is a bit stressed right now as the baby has not yet arrived and I thought a day where she could be pampered (Spa, massage, manicure, pedicure or something similar that would be totally for her to relax a bit). There are many packages I see on Groupon in Glasgow but that would require driving and it has to be within walking disctance that she could do at her convenience. Any assistance or suggestion would be much appreciated Thanks Joe at gmail you can reach me at joe dot kurtzke
