A massive Loch between Glasgow and Oban, I find Loch Lomond stunning. Even in rainy weather the loch is imposing and impressive. To me, Loch Lomond is far more impressive than Loch Ness. For great views, stop off at Luss, which is a beautiful town in its own right.

We spend three days in the Loch Lomond area. This area of Scotland is absolutely beautiful and well worth taking in as part of your tour of the region. There is a great deal to do, including hiking, cycling (very hilly), boating (all types), and touring. The small communities are worth seeking out; the history and treasures are found there....

Stopped off in Luss to look around - the weather was absolutely miserable! Visibility was very poor, and we couldn't see very much. Very small town so easy to walk around and look at the "sites". The church was very pretty and had some interesting historical points. Only took about 20 minutes in total to walk around. When the rain... More

A beautiful, gentle area of Scotland. Easy access in several locations from Highway A82. Picnic spots, boat ramps, information and maps along the shores. Just a wonderful stop along the largest lake in Scotland. Was here in July 2013.

What to say about Loch and Ben Lomond. Simply magic. This is a place to deserves more than visiting. One is obliged to live in it. Simply drive and walk by the shores of the loch, or better even, sail on the loch. Finally just walk up to the top of Ben Lomond to enjoy an enchanted view of the... More

Because the area around 72 square kilometer, you should go to the south of the lake. Their is a a castle right on the lake shore, Balloch Castle. It is free for the public to visit, other... More

The shores of Loch Lomond are beautiful and serene. A visit to the small village of Luss is definitely a must. Walking the shores around Balloch and walking the trails and roads around Luss make for a nice relaxing day.
