I just cannot drive past without taking the time to get out my car and find a spot where I can take in the wonderful view. One of the most peaceful and serene places I have ever been. There were many people there when I visited on a sunny day in semptember, but I didn't notice!

One of the most scenic loch's in Scotland. Very serene & calm. Once we neared the loch, we were welcomed by cute ducks, which we fed. A word of caution, only feed brown wholemeal bread to the ducks, as chocolates, sugars, candies make them sick. Also, some ducks may be wild!

We traveled the length of this loch with our tour group and the views were outstanding. Part of the lake joins or goes through Trossachs National Park so there is a lot of activities that you can do by spending time on the water or in the national park.

This was one of our stops on a tour around the Glasgow area. It's definitely worth a stop. There are lots of little, charming cottages. Happily the gift store had blankets that were 100% wool and made in Scotland--unbelievably these had been tough to find! Anyhow, if you have an opportunity to see the loch, it's a must-see.

While visiting Edinburgh, we wanted to take a day trip out to to one of the lochs and opted to visit Loch Lomond as it seemed easiest to get to. We didn't sign up with a tour company, but took the train from Edinburgh to Balloch, and then a ferry to Luss, a picturesque village on the western shores of... More

Peel off the A82 as you head south just after the Shantron turnoff and there's a very pleasant picnic area overlooking the loch, with toilet facilities discretely nearby. A two minute walk takes you away from the cars and through the trees. Not busy (even on a sunny early September day) and free of the crowds that congregate around Balloch.
