Welcome to the website for the village of Gartocharn, Loch Lomond in Scotland, created for the benefit of the community in particular, but also for anyone who would like to see what this beautiful part of the world has to offer.

Use the menu on the left hand side and the links within the pages to explore and discover up-to-date information and the many wonderful pictures taken by local photographers, changed on a regular basis, so there will always be something new and interesting to return to.

As mentioned, this is a community website and ideas/comments/contributions are always welcome – just send them direct to us.

An Extra-ordinary Meeting of Kilmaronock Community Council was held in Kilmaronock Millennium Hall on Wednesday 8 July 2015 at 7.30 pm. The main item on the Agenda was Planning Application 2015/0209: Application for 3 houses and a Therapy Centre in the field north of Gartocharn Church. 

Kilmaronock Community Council have written to the Planning Authority to strongly object to this application and the letter can be read below (there are three pages, click on each page then, when it has opened in a new window, click again to enlarge).
