Save 10% on accommodation for each day you combine Lomond Guides' services with a stay at Balmillig House, our comfortable 4 star B & B in Helensburgh, a historic and charming Clyde coast resort located on the edge of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

OUR park

As members of the Friends of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, we are proud to participate in OUR park.... and we will match your investment

OUR park is a tourism and conservation partnership scheme which encourages customers of tourism businesses to contribute a small sum (1.00) towards projects aimed at conserving the National Park's natural and cultural heritage.

When you pay your bill, we will ask you to make the donation and, if you agree, we will match it pound for pound. That way we both help to preserve the things which make the National Park a joy to visit.

John Muir meets Tom Weir Saturday 26 April.

Don't miss this unique event!

Although a century divided them, these great men were close in spirit and thought. What will they say when they meet on Goukhill?

Help us celebrate the opening of the new John Muir Way by taking part in The Friends of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs' fun walking event on Saturday 26 April.

And just to add to the fun, you'll need a cowboy hat and a big beard! Or, if you come along as a Tom Weir lookalike- just a bobble hat will do. If you can manage plus fours, a moustache and a red nose -perfection! For a donation we can supply the hats and beards! All proceeds go to the Tom Weir memorial statue fund.

With wayfinding instructions, we'll set you off at 4.00pm, either from Hermitage Park in Helensburgh or from Moss o' Balloch in Balloch.

Following about 7km of the John Muir Way, you'll arrive on Goukhill in good time to witness the meeting between the two great men at 6.00pm. After the performance is over why don't you head down to Balloch to see the fireworks at Loch Lomond Shores. Food and return rail transport is available there.

Want to take part? Then email us with number in your group, preferred start point and if you need hats.
