The privately owned Inchfad Island is situated in the south east end of Loch Lomond to the north west of Inchcailloch.
Trimmed by woodland, the island is nearly half a mile in length and rises to a height of 24m in its centre. With low and green and meadow-like interior being ringed and sheltered by a deep fringe of alder, birch ash and some isolated oaks, Inchfad Island has been inhabited and farmed for centuries. Once a place of illicit whisky distilling, the island is reputed to have been the source of smuggled liquor for the Glasgow market.
Today, close by the distillery site stands the modernized stone cottage which used to be a home for generations of Inchfad farmers.
