Loch Lomond

Just half an hour north of Glasgow is Loch Lomond, the largest expanse of inland water in Great Britain, and part of a National Park that includes both the loch and the inspirational scenery of the Trossachs. Loch Lomond has some wonderful contrasts. At the north end, the loch is much narrower and deeper, surrounded by dramatic mountain scenery, with Queen Elizabeth Forest Park on the east shoreline and Loch Katrine and the Trossachs beyond. Further down towards the south-eastern end of the Loch, deciduous woodlands hug the shoreline along with the sheltered harbour at Balmaha, an ideal place for water sports and the calm waters make for great canoeing.
