If you're going from Glasgow to Northern Scotland, don't hesitate and stop by this wonderful lake. I haven't been to all the atractions, just stopped in one little cozy village called Luss just to see the lake. And I wasn't disappointed at all. So, if you have time, just walk around it, take some pictures and visit most of the... More

We drove through the Trossachs to visit Doune Castle. Famous for it's filming of Monty Python and Game of Thrones pilot. Also the setting for the hit series Outlander. Such history and to see how life was back in those days was incredible.

I visited with a friend and loved it. You can walk for miles across it and up the hills for a better view. I thoroughly recommend a visit.

Only 14 miles north of Glasgow, Loch Lomond (in Gaelic 'Lake of the Elms’) is a freshwater lake which crosses the Highland Boundary Fault. It is the largest lake in Great Britain by surface area and about 25 miles long with its width varying from ¾ of a mile to 5 miles. Loch Lomond is beautiful to behold and I... More

A beautiful loch surrounded by forested hills, particularly up in the northern reaches. It is no wonder the Scots have immortalized it in song.

In danger of touching on some of the national nerves, Loch Lomond is not one of the top ten lochs of Scotland. It is the largest inland stretch of water in Great Britain by surface area. And it got a nationalistic song sung about it which is good. If you happen to pass by, enjoy it, but know there are... More

I was on a group tour and this was one of our excursions. We went on a boat tour of Loch Lomond. The scenery was beautiful and the Loch was very serene. Lots of beautiful scenery for taking pictures. The captain of the boat gave a history of the Loch and it was very informative. I highly recommend Loch Lomond... More
