The current Balloch station opened in 1988, and is the terminus of the North Clyde Line from Glasgow Queen Street. Other services from Balloch include trains to Airdrie and Cumbernauld, and a single daily service to Edinburgh. An older station building, dating back to 1850, and is still standing across the street - it now houses a tourist information office serving the stream of visitors attracted by the town's location at the foot of Loch Lomond. Next door to the tourist information is the Balloch Village landing on the River Leven, where you can catch a ferry to Luss Pier, further up the shore of the loch. Loch Lomond itself is a ten-minute walk from the station, and on its shores you'll find steamship tours, the Loch Lomond Aquarium and the Loch Lomond Bird of Prey Centre. Most of the town's hotels, guesthouses and restaurants can be found along Balloch Road, which runs directly past the station entrance.
