The summer can now begin! Restaurants, bars and cafés are now open! Hotels and all other accommodation are open. Visitor attractions, hairdressers and cinemas are now open. As tourism opens up in Scotland this summer, book your staycation, and visit Loch Lomond.
The communities and businesses of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park welcome visitors back safely.
Following the sunniest spring on record, we now invite everyone to enjoy the lazy, hazy days of summer and visit Loch Lomond again. June marked the start of summer and with the longer lighter nights, this is the perfect time for watersports, beaches and barbecues. Renowned for its incredible beauty and tranquility 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.
