We very much enjoyed our week at the Old Smiddy appartment. It is well located with a reasonably sized Co-op supermarket just 10 mins walk away. Also, rail station, Loch Lomond cruises and buses are up to 15 mins walk away, with one bus stop just a hundred yards from the entrance to the property. The ownwers are very helpful and the accommodation was clean, well equipped and comfortable. (We bought some eggs laid by the owners white hen that was always scratching around in the grounds and they were delicious).
Balloch is a good base to explore the general area, including Glasgow, which can be easily reached by train (two trains an hour).
We have just returned home after yet another great stay at the Old Smiddy apartment, it is a fantastic place, everything you need and right in the centre of Balloch. Every time we go the apartment has been to the highest standard and is constantly being updated and always immaculately clean. Would highly recommend this apartment or the adjoining cottage to anyone wanting a place to stay in this area. Thanks again to David and Fiona - amazing,friendly helpful hosts.

Couldn't fault this accommodation. Clean, tidy and comfortable. A real home from home! A perfect base for exploring Scotland. Thank you Fiona for making our holiday x
We are a small family of 4 and opted to stay at Old Smiddy, Balloch. During our stay we felt we made an excellent choice of staying here. The property is nicely located at centre of Balloch town with plenty of options to explore Loch Lomond area. It is a nice property with almost everything that we needed. We felt almost at home.
In future to visit Loch Lomond, our first option would really be this one. Highly recommended.
