Loch Lomond the Area
Dumbarton Castle Loch Lomond  

'The Lodge' is situated on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond in the beautiful conservation area of Rowardennan on the West Highland Way. Particularly unspoilt, it is a perfect starting point for an ascent of Ben Lomond, and has wonderful elevated views over the Loch, the Luss Hills and across to the Trossachs.

Whilst hidden within the Queen Elizabeth forest, the cabin is located within easy reach of the village of Drymen, approx 10 miles away on the B837, and a further 30 minutes drive from the cultural city of Glasgow.

Dumbarton Castle stands guard over the Clyde Estuary and sprawls over much of an isolated basaltic rock which rises from the shore of the Clyde and is cleft into two summits, the higher of which is known as Wallace's Seat. One of the oldest fortified sites in Scotland, the castle stands on the site of the ancient fort of the Britons of the kingdom of Strathclyde, whose capital this was and has been of significance throughout the centuries.
