Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond

This is the largest body of inland water in Great Britain and well worth seeing on any tours of Scotland.

It is 24 miles long and varies in width from ¾ mile to 5 miles.

There are 30 islands in Loch Lomond.

 

One island is Inchmurrin, which has the ruins of an old castle on it.

This belonged to the Earls of Lennox.

Inchmurrin also has the remains of a Nunnery.

The island is the burial place of the MacGregors.

 

Five of the islands, along with part of the mainland, are a Nature Reserve.

 

There are boat trips available and the Loch has many watersports available along its shores.

 

For avid hikers there is Ben Lomond mountain at 3192 ft.

It is a long, but not difficult walk.

The views from the top are fantastic.

 

At Ireland and Scotland Luxury Tours we have options to stay right on the banks of Loch Lomond.
