More than just a lake
The Loch was immortalised in the song ‘The Bonnie Banks o’ Loch Lomond’. It’s a freshwater loch that lies between the lowlands and highlands and has the largest surface area of any lake in Great Britain.
The water is surrounded by some truly stunning countryside, perfect for rambling through. There are also 30 islands on the loch, many of which you can take a cruise along the waters to visit. Animal lovers will want to head to Inchconnachan, which is home to a delightful colony of wallabies.
And a boat isn’t the only way to get out on the waters. Sports lovers can try their hands at kayaking, jet-skiing, canoeing and even wind-surfing.
If you want to stay on dry land, the Loch Lomond experience has expanded in recent years to become a part of the Trossachs National Park, a heavily forested area of Scotland that supplies many of the country’s Christmas trees. Combining lush landscapes, sprawling glens and rocky peaks, there’s plenty of flora and fauna to explore.
Walking and hiking are popular in all weathers, or for something a bit different, why not try a Segway tour?
