How to spend an hour in Balmaha:: cakes and coffee…
Continuing from my previous post, after the end of our hike to Conic Hill, John from Experience Scotland’s Wild kindly took us on a stroll around Balmaha, a popular tourist destination village next to Loch Lomond, before ending up at St Mocha Cafe for coffee and cakes. Balmaha has been looking pretty good these days as it is in the middle of the festival, Balmaha’s Braw Weekend, a foodie family festival (filled with good food, great music and loads of puppies).
I got the blueberry with freeze dried raspberry on top, which was delightful and made the rest be jealous for not getting one for themselves.
Once we devoured our cakes and drunk our coffees, we decided it was time to experience the Brew Weekend Festival. We settled for a couple of beers under the sunshine before tasting handmade burgers that as Steven described them, they were mouth-watering.
And that’s how our time in Balmaha was spent. You can spend more than an hour around the village, there are some lovely pubs and cafes to wander around and have a drink or something to eat. The location is stunning, in between Loch Lomond and the beautiful mountains. I seriously cannot wait to go back, and maybe I will have a slice (or two) of this cake again.
Have you ever been to Balmaha?
