Inchtavannach Island, also known as The Monk’s Island, is one of the larger islands that lie within Loch Lomond.
Facing the settlement of Aldochlay and being separated from the mainland by a small Bandry Bay just south of Luss, this is one of the most accessible islands on the loch.
Steeped in history, the island was once the site of a monastery giving rise to its alternative name of Monk’s Isle. Its rocky northern summit, Tom nan Clag meaning Hill of the Bell, rises steeply to a height of 86m providing splendid views on Loch Lomond and it was here that the monks rang the bell to the call of prayer.
