Mini guide to Loch Lomond

     

Loch Lomond must be the world's most famous loch and has been much written about, both in song and verse. The area is renowned for its beauty and tranquility and offers picturesque postcard views around every corner.

The largest body of fresh water in the UK, Loch Lomond is 24 miles long and five miles wide and up-to 600 feet deep. It is so large that the character of the scenery changes distinctly as you travel past. The most dramatic scenery is in the Highlands (north) part of the loch.

The Loch contains 38 islands, some of which are inhabited. Inchmurrin is the largest inland island in Britain and the most southerly on Loch Lomond. The island is 1.5 miles long, a mile wide and can be fully explored by visitors.

Ben Lomond overlooks Loch Lomond and offers spectacular views of the Vale of Leven and the towns surrounding it. Walks in the area include the Drovers Trail, which stretches from Cardross to the River Clyde. From this path there are magnificent views of Loch Lomond with horseback riding, fishing and water sports all within easy reach.

A trip through 'The Narrows,' as it is popularly known, is a must for anyone visiting Loch Lomond. This narrow, winding, river-like stretch of water separates the islands of Inchconnachan and Inchtavannach, and is undoubtedly the jewel of the loch. These sheltered waters are unaffected by any wind and trap the sun for most of the day.

Routes from the south are the M74 from Carlisle or the A1 from Newcastle. To the north, Stirling can be reached via the A9, A90 and A82 main routes. Alexandria and Balloch, on the southern shore of the Loch, have rails station connecting it to Glasgow.
