Loch Katrine or Millport?

Hi Everyone

Looking to go to either Loch Katrine or Millport in Scotland... any suggestions as to which one is better?

As I only have the one day, I need to make a wise choice.

Would like to hear from people who've been to either or both

I've been to both. Better? On what sense? We can't help without more info.

Where are you staying? What do you hope to do/see in either Millport or Loch Katrine? Do you have a car?

Millport is better, as it's on an island in the Firth of Clyde.

Loch Katrine is better is you like driving to your scenic spots. There's a lovely old boat on the loch for trips.

If you only have 1 day,then it would be wise to base yourself around Glasgow.

enjoy

Should of mentioned, I already stay in Glasgow. I've got a car.

I want to take a mate, who's come from abroad, on a trip - seen as its been a good few sunny days. Wouldn't mind some sort of forrest activities or sporting stuff.

I really enjoyed taking the steam boat ride on Loch Katrine. It was scenic and interesting as it was a steam boat. ; ) Pam

In that case I'd choose Loch Katrine. It's easy to get to from Glasgow and the scenery is stunning. Take the boat trip and have a walk. There are some lovely walks and good viewpoints in that area.

You cannot beat the scenery of Loch Katrine and the rest of the Trossachs.

I've been to both, in fact we go walking or cycling most weekends in the

Trossachs area where Loch Katrine is.

Both places have cycle hire available.

Millport has pubs as well as cafes - Loch Katrine has cafes at Trossachs Pier and Stronachlachar.

Take a boat trip on Loch Katrine, round trip or get off at Stronachlachar and walk or cycle back the 13 miles on tarmac (cycle hire at Trossachs Pier).

I think the boat trips run from around April to October!!

My personal choice would be Loch Katrine, as there is so much scenery on the way and while you are there.
