Balmaha Experience

The Oak Tree Inn has just updated its very popular free map & guide to Balmaha.

Entitled ‘The Balmaha Experience’, the brochure folds out to show a map of the beautiful village (see below). The map also features a Top 10 list of things to do when in Balmaha (also listed below). The Oak Tree’s accommodation and facilities are shown on this map in a handy size version for our guests.

On the cover you will see the line ‘Loch Lomond’s Ultimate Destination’,  this is because we truly believe that Balmaha is the best place to visit. Within walking distance from our buildings there is spectacular scenery, with easy access to the loch. The Oak Tree itself is renowned for food and drink as well as an ever growing range of facilities including accommodation cottages, The Village Shop and St Mocha Coffee Shop & Ice Cream Parlour.

The Balmaha Experience is available for free in all of the Oak Tree buildings and accommodation. It can also be downloaded and viewed on the location page of our website.

Words and photographs in The Balmaha Experience are by Paul Saunders Photography. The design is by Mark Hutton of Hutton Creative.

Plus now we have a video version, including some spectacular aerial footage of Balmaha – here it is…
