Tour Scotland Video Of Old Photographs Of Balloch



Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Balloch a small town in West Dunbartonshire, at the foot of Loch Lomond, Scotland. Balloch is at the north end of the Vale of Leven, straddling the River Leven itself. It connects to the larger town of Alexandria and to the smaller village of Jamestown, both of which are located to its south. It also borders the Kilpatrick Hills. With its accessible location at the southern end of Loch Lomond and just off the main road from Glasgow to the West Highlands, it is an important centre of tourism, especially from Glasgow and Dumbarton. Balloch comes from the Gaelic word bal, baile or ball, which means village or hamlet, so Balloch means, village on the loch. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
