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, usually at the end of a merry night out.

It may have inspired the odd romantic tune, but what else is there to love about Loch Lomond? 

On the bonnie, bonnie banks

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.

Loch Lomond has a shoreline of 153 km, so whether you're after a gentle round of golf and a romantic loch-side amble, or a vigorous hike and wild watery adventures, you'll definitely find something to do. Don't forget, there are a number of small islands within the loch, and you can rent a boat and explore these at your leisure, leaving civilisation behind.

There are plenty of places to camp too, so you can wake up to the calming sounds of nature.
