During a visit to Balloch on the southern end of Loch Lomond we heard about Duncryne Hill, an extinct volcanic cone a few mile east of town just south of eastbound A811 (towards Stirling). Once you see the hill to your right (it is pretty distinct), keep an eye out for Duncryne Road-easy to miss because it is a narrow... More

We did a little cruise on Loch Lomond and enjoyed the view. The weather was fine with a clear sky so the view was fantastic. Beside the view and some background info from the captain, there was not that much to see but that's ok for us.

A very spectacular loch. Took a boat cruise in cold weather- view was still stunning in spite of the weather. The villages dotted at the sides were pretty. The boat cruise itself was awesome and was the most memorable highlight of my visit to Scotland- in terms of scenery- in early 2007.

As part of our road trip from Edinburgh to the Isle of Skye, Loch Lomond lake was a great addition of a beautiful sight. Ducks coming out to get fed, some very cozy places to get a coffee and relax. You can drive around the lake if you wish but if you want to explore more you need to go... More

Loch Lomond is absolutely stunning! We went on a two hour boat tour of the Loch. It was lovely seeing Ben Lomond, the various golf courses, the castle and the villages from the boat! We spent time in Balloch by the Loch and the town was lovely. The picture perfect Scottish experience!

Great Lake with stunning views but it's all about the weather and beware the midges in summer as they can get very annoying

Loch lomond is very nice place to spend a day or even days . I noticed that the lake can attract more tourists but it needs alot to be done such as more resturants hotels and better roads and parkings and intertainments .

Lovely place! Lots to do if you have a car but if not there are a lot of walks you can go on. Highly recommend hiring Kayaks though!
