Loch Lomond is a beautiful loch. I had the chance to go there when it was snowing so it was just breath-taking! It was really worth to rent a car from Edinburgh and to drive to there. It's like the Loch Ness but closer.

Absolutely worth going there, such a nice place! Im sure it can get pretty busy there in summer but still, just go there for a day or even a few hours. Its really close to glasgow and just a tiny detour if you are on your way up to fort william etc. If you are in balloch, make sure you... More

The Loch Lomond boat tour was a memorable one hour tour. The scenery was breathtaking. We saw castles along the way, some are converted to 5 star hotels, some used as concert halls. In the distance the majestic snow covered Ben Lomond can be seen.

After taking the hike around the Loch there is a quaint little Inn and Restaurant with yummy fruit! You must absolutely try the mixed berry tart with cream!

It is that time of year. The Highlands come to life, birds of prey,sea planes,wildlife water skiing,swimming and more. Drive over Glen Douglas for an amazing view. Sorry to say Arrochar has fallen apart. Enjoy the atmosphere aroma of the area. On a still day the Loch is stunning.

We drove around Loch Lomond and parked at Balmaha for our walk. The sand was a pinkish gritty type and we began our walk from the visitor centre. There are information huts at several points which was good because we missed a marker and didn't realize for about 2 km. We saw red deer wandering wild. I have posted a... More

Got to hike up one of the many trails that overlook the loch. Beautiful even on a foggier day ! Don't forget to learn the song of Loch Lomond!

The beauty of the loch is breathtaking, and slightly different from every angle as you walk around it. From different sides of it you would swear you were at a different loch... From the shops and restaurants on the banks, to the harbour and pubs to the forest walk. Each side has a different feel to it and something different... More
