Bike hire and canoe hire available on the loch shore. The weekend market stalls offering local food are also great. Hope they continue to develop it as they have done a good job over... More

Loch Lomond is only 24 miles (around 38 kilometres) from Glasgow and should be able to be reached in a half hour or so. It's not far actually, so we left from Glasgow after lunch time around 4 o'clock pm. As soon as we were on M8 just outside Glasgow, the traffic built up and we were trapped in the... More

Haven't been to Loch Lomond for years, the shores is easy to find and there's plenty of parking. A small shopping mall, sea life aquarium, falconry centre (fab!), treetop thing, bike & boat hire & boat trips means there is lots to do but if you're planning on doing it all make sure you bring loads of money with you....
