Plans to turn an area of Loch Lomond into a family holiday village, including hotels, a craft brewery and boat house, have been submitted for approval.

The proposal for a £30million tourism investment at the foot of Loch Lomond, named Lomond Banks, has been submitted to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

The area of Balloch, on the southern tip of the Loch, has already been marked for tourism development in a local plan.

A variety of accommodation facilities have been put forward for the area, including a 60 bedroom apartment-hotel, a 32 bedroom budget hotel and 131 self catering units.

Six private houses and 15 apartments have also been proposed for those looking for a home away from home experience.

If approved, the project is expected to be completed by 2024 and is anticipated to bring as many as 80 full time jobs, 50 part-time jobs and up to 70 seasonal roles to the area.

Along with the extensive accommodation, there will be lots on offer for all the family, including a craft brewery, leisure centre and boat house.

Plans for greenspaces are also included in the project, such as upgrading public footpaths and dog walking routes.

Local people will have the opportunity to view and comment on the plans, which will be determined by The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Planning & Access Committee.

Balloch and Loch Lomond are already popular destinations for day trips and visitors from across Scotland and the rest of the UK.

The proposed family holiday village in Balloch will be built on an area currently known as West Riverside and Woodbank House.

The plans aim to retain the natural woodland of the area, while creating a visitor destination for family days out, holidays and short breaks.

Andy Miller, director at Lomond Banks, said: “We know that our vision for the area will add tangible value to the community and to the rest of Scotland for the next 40 years and beyond.”
