Balmaha  Stirlingshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Balmaha like this:

Balmaha, a hamlet in Buchanan parish, Stirlingshire, on the eastern shore and near the foot of Loch Lomond, just opposite Inchcailloch isle, and 4 miles NW of Drymen. It has a pier, where the steamers call, and near which are the chemical works of Turnbull & Co., yearly consuming some 700 tons of small wood in the making of pyroligneous acids and dye-stuffs.
