Wonderful views for miles
Sep 2021 • Friends
Absolutely stunning. Took my breath away! Lots of places to stop by the roadSide and walk down to the beaches.
Advised for dogs not to swim or drink the water due to algae, but our dog still enjoyed the beaches.
The views are spectacular and the road it nice to just cruise along

A beautiful peaceful haven, with many different plants and birds. A shame the water had blue algae during our visit.

Great Little Drive
Aug 2019
The Road to Loch Eck is on the drive from Dunoon to join the way to Inveraray or to the Rest and be Thankful. The road is usually relatively quiet and snakes its way up the side of the Loch, on the way is the Coylet Inn and the Whistlefield Inn, both recommended eating places. The Loch starts just after Benmore Gardens, a part of the Botanical Gardens of Edinburgh, a place well known for its Rhododendrons and the Giant Redwood trees. The Gardens also have a very nice little restaurant.
Like most of the Glacial Lochs it is very deep and also very cold but small boats regularly sail from the Coylet Inn as it is also close to the caravan park.
Make it a day out with at a meal at one of the places mentioned .
I know the bus runs from Dunoon to the Gardens and think it travels on to Inveraray

Gorgeous peaceful Loch. Plenty of places to stop for a rest or picnic or just to stretch your legs. Perhaps when warm enough could have a swim.

Very picturesque.

This loch is always picturesque and is broodingly atmospheric when it’s misty and a bit wet. There are good walks round the back of and alongside the.och.

Jubilee Point
May 2017
Lock Eck has lots of places to visit but Jubilee Point is a family fave, either to throw stones or to have a fire to cook sausages. Well worth a visit.

The thing I love about this loch is that you could walk down the far bank from one end to the other and never meet another soul

Just love this area. Nice walks all round Loch Eck with varying levels of difficulty, Shame the Coylet inn burned down as would be a useful stop.
