Just look in the Walks tab and drill down to the area you are interested in. Plenty walks for all abilities. Enjoy.

Conic Hill near Balmaha is a good starter, a nice walk through the woods (look out for red squirrels) then up steeper terrain to the top, with great views out over the loch and its islands, and over to the west highland peaks. The kid romped up it when he was seven years old so it's not too bad. Ben Lomond is a much bigger, more serious proposition. Glen Luss is a nice woodland walk. Excellent hot filled rolls at the Luss village shop.

I can repeat Caberfeidh's advice, Conic hill is a great wee hill. For a less strenuous walk try Balloch Castle Park, in Balloch itself or head up A82 to Firkin Point, the old road there is very easy to walk and it's lochside with great views. You could also try RSPB Loch Lomond at Gartocharn, nice woodland walk or a longer walk to the loch, check out their website for detailed directions. Whatever you chose to do, enjoy this wonderful area of our beautiful country.
