Balloch is on the shores of Loch Lomond. The trip takes 2½ hours and is right along the
River Clyde all the way. There are a lot of Ship building yards where among other ships
in building is a light Cruiser to do 45 miles an hour.
I got out to Balloch about dinner-time and strolled through Loch Lomond Park and
passed Balloch Castle, an old place in a very good state of repair, and stood on a hill.
