Tonight's Helensburgh tips is for the parents over what to do in Helensburgh....
Helensburgh itself has a host of restaurants and tea shops. The racing takes place of Helensburgh Pier so it is worth a walk down there to watch. On Thursday the Waverly is due to visit Helensburgh. A paddle steamer that travels around the west coast and is a site to behold as she comes in! Maybe you could book a trip and either come into or out or Helensburgh pier.
Loch Lomond is just over the hill, if you wanted to climb Ben Lomond you would need to drive round the bottom of Loch Lomond. Alternatively a trip to the Arrochar Alps is only a short drive away and is a chance to see some of the great Scottish Mountains.
Reminder to everyone that the early entry period for the Nationals finishes this Friday - extract from the NoR is below. I encourage everyone to enter this week please so we can give Helensburgh an appreciation of numbers.
