Went to Loch Lomond from Edinburgh on a day trip. There are plenty of places to eat, and a choice of relaxing or challenging walks to take. Or you can just find a spot by the Loch to relax. Excellent attraction.

Trip to scotland cannot be complete without seeing a Loch. Many goes to Loch Ness but accessibility and time you need is more. Contrast to that Loch Lamond is present just 30 minutes drive from Glasgow. Frequent trains also present between Glasgow and Balloch if you prefer public transport. We also took the cruise and we liked it. Beautiful place!

I recently went to Loch Lomond which in itself is a nice experience, the loch is a really nice place and a must see, however, it bares no comparison to Loch Ness. So if you are undecided as to which experience to have a go at, go for Loch Ness because simply there is much more to do and see... More

I stopped along Loch Lomond at a town called Luss while touring Scotland on a coach tour. It was nice to follow the path along the lake and admire the flowers and beauty of the lake. Couldn't help but singing The Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond while there.

Visiting Loch Lomond is a good alternative if you don't want to go as far as Loch Ness. It's in the Trossachs National park, very near Aberfoyle village and the journey itself is a pleasure for the eyes. You can have a boat ride in the lake if the weather is good. Of course, this is a place you will... More

How to enjoy a 65th wedding anniversary? Skimming stones on Loch Lomond, a wee picnic and a stroll at Rowardennon then a drink at the Old Oak in Balmaha. Smashing day out.

A boat cruise on a sunny day is just the perfect way of visiting this place . We were not so lucky since it was cold , raining and very windy . Still I say that it was a experience . Next year I plan to stay for night I one of resorts on its banks

I went to scottland on a week trip. I drove all the way from Edinburgh to Isle of Skye . When we came across Loch Lamond my heart made me to stay there for a night even though it was not plan. The place was very good and the breathe taking beauty of the loch was amazing. We also saw... More

If you are looking for open space close to Glasgow - this is the place. Lovely views and little villages abound.
