Sometimes playing second fiddle to Loch Ness, Loch Lomond is arguably a more picturesque and beautiful loch.
The largest body of fresh water in Britain, it is situated in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. The southern end of Loch Lomond is rather flat, but as you rise northward through the mountainous regions of the highlands, you will begin to see how Loch Lomond has been the muse for so many famous Scottish artists, musicians and writers.
The entrance for travellers to explore Loch Lomond is commonly Balloch, a small town situated at the southern end of the loch, with a railway connection. Arguably the best way to enjoy the nature of Loch Lomond is to go by pushbike, the principal cycle route is around 25 miles, and is fairly easy going. Alternatively sightseeing trips by boat can be organized in Balloch.
There are some spectacular hotels in the Loch Lomond region, Rowardennan hotel is a traditional hotel with incredible views of Ben Lomond and the loch itself. The Lodge on Loch Lomond Hotel has a restaurant with 2 AA rosettes, whereas Arrochar Hotel is remotely located on the shores of Loch Long, perfect for a true getaway.
