COVID-19 : Lock Down: Scotland - We urge people not to travel. Please stay within 5 miles of your home as the Scottish government strongly recommends. Our communities look forward to welcoming you to Loch Lomond and the National Park with open arms, in the future, when they are able to. Stay at Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives.
Following the sunniest, spring on record, we hope that it will not be too long until everyone can enjoy the lazy, hazy days of summer and visit Loch Lomond again. June marks the start of summer and with the longer, lighter, nights this is the perfect time for water sports, beaches and barbecues. Renowned for its incredible beauty and tranquillity and much written about in both song and verse, there is no better place to be in summer than by the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.
About Loch Lomond
Lying on the Highland boundary fault and covering many contrasting landscapes, the loch is 24.5 miles (39 km) long, it is the largest freshwater loch in Scotland and the jewels in its crown are 30+ islands, the largest being Inchmurrin. This popular leisure destination, located between the lowlands and highlands of central Scotland was awarded National Park status in July 2002. Opened by HRH Princess Anne, the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, was the first in Scotland .
Only a thirty minute drive from Glasgow and within easy reach of Stirling and Edinburgh, explore the diversity of landscapes which have inspired painters, musicians, artists and writers. Visit Loch Lomond - a loch for all seasons.
"I have seen the Lago di Garda, Albano di Vico, Bolsena and Geneva and I prefer Loch Lomond to them all... Everything here is romantic beyond imagination" - Tobias Smollett, 1771
