Loch Katrine (Scotland) ... Scotland. This dramatic scenery was the inspiration and setting for Sir Walter Scott`s first major work "The Lady of the Lake". Scott's colourful description of the scenery of the Trossachs inspired the first tourists to venture to Highland Scotland. So it is fitting that the steamer which ventures into the deep highland vastness, on the sparkling waters of the beautiful Loch Katrine, should be named after the author who also penned the tales of folk hero Rob Roy MacGregor.
