Balloch, together with the adjoining towns of Alexandria, Jametown, Bonhill and Renton forms the Vale of Leven conurbation with a population of around 20,000. This occupies the valley between Loch Lomond and the River Clyde at Dumbarton.

Balloch is at the Southern entrance of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, but is the most urban of the communities in the park. The national park has no entrance fees, and if you are passing through the only evidence of the park that you may see are a few road signs.
