Information

With an area of 27 square miles, the 24-mile-long Loch Lomond is the largest inland loch/lake in Great Britain (the largest in the UK being Lough Neagh in Northern Ireland). The loch forms part of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, which was created in 2002. There are several islands in the loch, one of which has been home to a colony of wallabies since the 1940s.

The picturesque village of Luss lies on the shore of Loch Lomond and is a very popular tourist destination. The settlement probably dates back to the 1300s and much of the village was rebuilt in the 1800s by the Colquhouns of Rossdhu Castle to provide housing for the workers in their nearby slate quarries.

  1. Great photos, I love the close-up of the boat 🙂 I camped at Luss a few years ago, it’s a very picturesque little place and the lochside views were gorgeous 🙂

  2. We learned a dong about Loch Lomond in grade school, so many years ago. I liked it, and I still remember it. I imagined Loch Lomond as some special place back then, certainly not with paddle-boards. 🙂 Not to say it still isn’t special.
