Days out in West Dunbartonshire

Most visitors take the high road here to see Loch Lomond – yup, the one from the song. You can take a cruise at this lovely spot close to Balloch, make friends with a golden eagle (under supervision) and visit the Sealife centre.

Anything else to see in and around West Dunbartonshire? Yes indeed. How about a 13th century castle plonked on top of a 334 million year old volcano? Or a sculpture to a missing Roman Legion? And don’t forget Overtoun Bridge, which dogs have been jumping off since the 1960’s. Best leave Rover at home then.

Easy to reach from Glasgow and the rest of central Scotland, West Dunbartonshire mixes Scotland’s scenic and spooky sides like a good whisky sour.
