Loch Lomond is the largest land-locked body of water on the UK mainland and the focal point of Scotland’s first national park.

    The largest expanse of fresh water on mainland Britain, Loch Lomond has a shoreline of more 153km. Narrower in the north near the village of Ardlui, the loch gradually widens in the south near the village of Balloch.

    38 islands are dotted around the loch, the largest being Inchmurrin. Another, Inchconnochan, is home to one of Scotland’s rarest native species, the capercaillie, which nests on the island.

    Due to its proximity to Scotland’s central belt, it’s a popular day trip destination due to the various opportunities for water sports, fishing, golf, walking, hiking and camping.

    Loch Lomond itself has become well known as the subject of a song reportedly about a returning Highlander soldier called ‘The bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.’
