Zoos & Aquariums Wildlife Areas Parks
Balloch is a small town in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland, at the foot of Loch Lomond.EtymologyBalloch, or Bealach, comes from the Gaelic word 'bal' which means village or hamlet, so Balloch means village on the Loch - as in nearby Loch Lomond. The word can also mean "the pass".GeographyBalloch 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. To the east of the town lies the major local authority housing scheme in the area known as 'The Haldane' or 'The Mill of Haldane'. At 56 degrees N, Balloch is at about the same latitude as Moscow.
