Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park (Loch Lomond) Reviews
Newest Review: ... shops like Jenners, Thorntons, local gift shops to Hawkshead, Ponden Mill and many more. There are also 2 or 3 coffee shops and restaurants where you can enjoy some light refreshments or even enjoy a meal with a glass of wine whilst taking in the breathtaking scenery overlooking the loch. This is also where you will find the large, very well kept toilets and baby changing areas. If it's the outdoor scene you are looking for then there is certainly plenty to choose from. Pedal boats, canoes and kayaks can be hired for some fun bobbing about in a sectioned off part of the loch. Bikes for all ages with trailers and pull-alongs for the y... more

Myself, hubby and the kids all managed to get two weeks holidays together over Easter. It was wonderful, no running around ferrying the family to work, paper round, school, clubs etc. Just two lazy weeks where I could have a long lie if I wanted, hang the washing out mid morning instead of before 8am, watch telly, do nothing Ahhhhhhh............wonderful!! Of course we didn't want to just laze around the whole time and decided to have a few days here and there. The first day trip we decided to take was over to the magnificent scenery by Loch Lomond. Loch Lomond is a truly beautiful loch set amongst the tranquil, rolling hills in the Loch Lomond and ... Read the complete review

Loch Lomond is officially my favourite place in the world. Young or old, it will not fail to take your breath away. The scenery is captivating and there is plenty to do. Last April myself and a few friends decided to take a weekend camping trip to Loch Lomond. Being Inexperienced in the camping field we did not know what to expect and didn't really know where at the Loch we were heading. We arrived at about 2 pm and stopped of at a few places who were quite unwilling to take us as we were so young and automatically assumed we were there to be loud and roudy - this was not the case. After driving around for 5 hours in the snow (Yes, it was snowing, ... Read the complete review

*****Loch Lomond***** If youíre planning to visit Loch Lomond, here is a review to give you lots of information to help you plan your trip! *****A Lakeside Retreat to Soothe Your Soul***** A few years ago I partook in a walking quest that led me a whole 96 miles or so from the outskirts of Glasgow all the way through the Highlands to Fort William, in the shadow of Ben Nevis. It was a wonderful time, and if you care to, you can read of my adventures in a review here called Walking The West Highland Way. Iíll be writing up some more, based on the other places we stayed at as time goes by. One of the loveliest parts of this ... Read the complete review

I grew up in Dumbarton, 7 miles from the majestic Loch Lomond. I spent many years near it or on it, and have enjoyed every moment. Driving to Loch Lomond is easy, head for Glasgow Airport, keeping going and cross the Erskine Bridge onto the A82 and follow the signs. Quick tip: if the traffic is bad, wait until you reach Dumbarton (past the Shell garage on your right) and turn right at the roundabout (signposted Bonhill if I remember correctly). Follow the road and signs for Balloch. This will take you the back road to Balloch, the town that sits at the foot of the loch. So what is there to do around Loch Lomond? Well you can visit Balloch Castle and Country ... Read the complete review

I’ll take the road that brings me to the shores of Loch Lomond anytime. The scenery at this most tranquil place is absolutely breathtaking. Loch Lomond is the largest loch in Scotland being 23 miles long and up to 5 miles wide and it is 630 feet deep at its deepest point. It also has 38 islands and pleasure cruises run from Luss, Tarbert and Balloch. My partner and I have been up to The Isle of Skye on two occasions and each time we have broken our journey in Luss on the shores of Loch Lomond. This is the little village of stone cottages where Take The High Road is filmed. I’m afraid that didn’t actually mean a lot to me as I don’t watch ... Read the complete review
