Lomondgate’s strategic position at the gateway to Loch Lomond and the National Park made it a prime location for destination services serving day visitors and tourists as well as the local market. The Lomondgate masterplan earmarked a site next to the new roundabout, and the partners have successfully delivered almost all the key elements of the package.

Currently at Lomondgate

  • a 60-bedroom Premier Inn hotel, together with a pub/family restaurant (the Malt & Myre) opened in 2011: it has been so successful that the operators have  extended by a further 54-bedrooms
  • Scotland’s first drive-through Costa coffee shop opened in 2012
  • a petrol filling station was an essential part of the mix but changes in the sector suggested that it would be hard to attract an operator: following a sustained marketing campaign led by the Lomondgate partnership, Euro Garages opened for business in 2015
  • Jaconelli’s fish diner opened in 2015
  • this leaves one parcel of land (Site F) available for a tourism/visitor facility.
