Scotland’s West coast and loch’s are world renowned as some of the best places to sail and cruise and for many Loch Lomond as the largest inland loch in the UK is a must, so here is a quick guide to this amazing boating paradise.
The loch is over 25 miles long and has numerous islands and is an ideal place to spend a good week exploring by boat, canoe etc.
On the islands you will find everything from,wild deer, capacaily , wallabies ( yes there are wild wallabies on one of the islands), rare plants, castle ruins, a great restaurant, lots of places to camp, etc. You will also find that other boaters on the loch are also often willing to help or recommend things to do so is perfect for both novice and experienced boat owners.
The loch is also known for its superb fishing and huge pike and good sized trout are regularly caught ( permit required) so if fishing is your thing, why not bring your barbeque and enjoy eating your catch on one of the many islands.
Around the idilic shores of the loch there are lots of places to eat, shower, stock up on supplies and for those who can play there is even a very good golf course. There are also a large number of visitor attractions and some very good value traditional Scottish pubs and restaurants For more information we would recommend looking at http://www.boatlochlomond.com/loch_links.html
