Balloch to Helensburgh
The Three Lochs Way links Loch Lomond, Gare Loch and Loch Long and was developed by the Helensburgh and District Access Trust. This first section joins Balloch at the southern end of Loch Lomond with the leafy town of Helensburgh and shares much of the route with the John Muir Way. The route climbs steeply with good views before heading up through forestry and descending over moorland with sea views.
Paths, minor road, open moorland, main road with pavement.
Trains or buses serve both Balloch and Helensburgh (use Helensburgh Upper Station).
