After the long drive from Swindon up to Glasgow it was time to get out. I decided to visit the newly opened Loch Lomond Shores near Balloch at the southern end of Loch Lomond.
Picture of Drumkinnon Tower One of the main attractions at Loch Lomond Shores is Drumkinnon Tower (picture left) with its viewing platform at the top. I gave the various shows and exhibitions in the tower a miss and headed straight up to the viewing platform. The view north towards Ben Lomond is very nice, even though Ben Lomond was hiding in the clouds.

From Loch Lomond Shores I walked to Balloch and then continued north along Loch Lomond. Somewhere just past Balloch I encountered a group of youg people who had decided to go for a swim in Loch Lomond, disregarding that it was December and the temperature just above freezing...

Picture of a view north The walk along Loch Lomond was very nice with some nice views north-west. Late in the afternoon I returned to my car to drive back to Glasgow after a very nice day out.
