NS3882 : Old boathouse and slipway

taken 9 years ago, near to Balloch, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Old boathouse and slipway
Old boathouse and slipway
The photograph was taken at a point roughly halfway along the western edge of Balloch Castle Country Park. A cold mist hangs over the more distant parts of Loch Lomond in the background.

The skyline hills, directly behind the nearest of the tables and benches, are those around Glen Finlas (which is centred on NS3289). When this picture was taken, the old boat house had been refurbished only a few years earlier, and was being used as a snack bar; though it cannot be made out from here, the word written above the door on this side is "SLIPWAY".

For another view of the slipway and former boathouse, see NS3882 : A slipway on the east side of Loch Lomond.
Loch Lomond
Loch Lomond is the largest lake in the British isles. It is 24 miles long and covers 27 sq. miles. The loch lies along the Highland Boundary Fault.
