Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond is one of our most beautiful and iconic places. It was even the inspiration behind a love song that people in Scotland sing at several special occasions, but what else is there to love about Loch Lomond? The mesmerising loch lies in the heart of the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, where you'll be surrounded by charming villages, rolling countryside, hills and some truly wonderful activities. With so much to choose from, it’s the perfect place for any trip, from weekend breaks to longer holidays. You won’t be short of amazing accommodation options, including cosy country inns and camping sites by the water.

At 190m deep and with a shoreline of 153 km, whether you're after a gentle round of golf and a romantic loch-side amble, or a vigorous hike and wild watery adventures, there are loads of ways to explore the loch. And don’t forget to get on the water too – did you know Loch Lomond is the largest expense of water in the UK? There are several small islands within the loch, which can be explored thanks to dedicated cruises as well as the Loch Lomond Waterbus ferry services. Or, you can hire a boat and explore yourself. Less than an hours’ drive from Glasgow, and easily accessible by train or bus, there’s no excuse not to visit this iconic place on your trip! While you’re there, make sure to explore more of Loch Lomond, The Trossachs, Stirling & Forth Valley.
