primary and secondary level, in both the public and private
sectors, respectively Hermitage and Lomond School.

(lower and upper), providing ready links to Glasgow and beyond,
together with a connection to Edinburgh. The area is surrounded by
some lovely walks, it has a sailing club, a marina and an excellent
golf course that is "e;just over the hill"e; from
the, world renowned, Loch Lomond Golf Course at Luss. Indeed, just
to the north of Helensburgh, is Scotland‘s first national park -
the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park with all the magnificent
hills, lochs and scenery it affords.
