Road Directions

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.
