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.

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

It is the breathtaking views that made us decide to return and tour the area for at least 7days the surrounding towns are just full of character so next time we will drive the region and enjoy the amazing walking tracks(on foot)...

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

If you have one day free at your visit in Edinburgh or Glasgow take an one day tour to Loch Lomond and Sterling Castle. You will enjoy history and nature in one trip. The lake is so beautiful with its small islands and the forest around it! And the castle is so nice, well preserved and full of stories! Don't... More
