Oak Tree Inn, Loch Lomond
From 2014 onwards we have worked closely with The Oak Tree Inn, Balmaha, Loch Lomond developing their marketing and helping to create new products.
This family business is incredibly entrepreneurial, continuously adding new facilities to their portfolio of services, whilst delivering consistently high standards across its bar, restaurant, shop, coffee shop & ice cream parlour
We developed 'The Balmaha Experience’ to market Balmaha as a destination. Quite rightly and proudly The Oak Tree is marketed as ‘Loch Lomond’s Ultimate Destination’, bringing together outstanding natural beauty, with the high class facilities provided by The Oak Tree Inn.
This free guide showcases these qualities and is a useful guide to the people that visit the village.
Here are two videos that we have produced for The Oak Tree Inn. The first is to promote Balmaha’s Braw Weekend, a festival staged in 2015 & 2016, as well as general video to introduce recent changes to the destination.

FOOD & DRINK AT THE OAK TREE INN
The Oak Tree Inn are deservedly renowned for the high quality of Scottish food and drink that they serve. Here are some photographs to showcase this.
Food provenance is incredibly important to people on holiday. We produced the posters below that demonstrate the excellent provenance that The Oak Tree has, producing many items themselves, with others sourced locally and throughout Scotland.
Loch Lomond Ice Cream & Coffee
The Oak Tree was the first business in Loch Lomond to produce its own ice cream. This was followed by the introduction of Loch Lomond Coffee Co. the first coffee roasting facility in Loch Lomond. We were pleased to work on the successful funding application that contributed to its funding, as well as the launch of the new brand.
BALMAHA'S BRAW WEEKEND
Balmaha's Braw Weekend was a festival of food, drink and live music, on the banks of Loch Lomond in October 2015 and October 2016. We helped The Oak Tree team to plan, promote and Event Manage both of these very successful festivals.
A GIFT FROM LOCH LOMOND
We also helped the business to create a new gift brand for The Oak Tree Inn, called A Gift from Loch Lomond. This included the creation of an e-commerce website to retail gifts and experiences about Loch Lomond.
Here are two videos produced to promote A Gift from Loch Lomond.
