We checked-out of Ibis hotel early at 7:30 a.m. on the second day of our road-trip. As per itinerary, we will be ending our day at Fort Williams with a traveling distance of about 150 miles.Today will be the start of our Scottish Highlands exploration after visiting the town & village of Balloch & Luss, two convenient stops along the way.
Firstly we headed north to the town of Balloch. This is a small town at the foot of Loch Lomond. Arriving 45 minutes later, we proceeded to Loch Lomond pier to have a morning view of Loch Lomond. Here you’ll be able to see the ‘Maid of the Loch’, a paddle steamer built in 1953 moored at the pier. Aboard, the ‘Maid’ has tea room for tea, coffee, soft drinks as well as hot and cold snacks and home-baked cakes.
We took a bit of time to drive around Balloch town to see it’s dwellings and the houses seems to be modern but a little smaller in size compared to houses back home. Hereafter, we left Balloch for the town of Luss a further 9 miles north.
