Activities

There are various activities to get involved with in and around Loch Lomond, below are some of our personal favourites.
Hill Walking
Within Scotland's first national park, Loch Lomond is the UK's largest freshwater expanse and one of its most picturesque. Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park extends into the beautiful Trossachs where you'll find wild glens and sparkling lochs.

This area offers many gentle walks through remarkably beautiful landscapes that have a rich flora and fauna.

Footpaths run beside lochs, whose glassy waters reflect mountains and wooded shores, and along rivers and streams with waterfalls and rock
features. Many routes are signposted, especially around villages and in Queen Elizabeth and Argyll forest parks.
Water Sports
Loch Lomond has the largest surface area of fresh water Loch in the UK. The Loch is 24 miles long and five miles wide and at its deepest point is some 600 feet deep.

Why not enjoy a relaxing Loch Cruise with Sweeny’s Cruises based in Balloch just a short 5 minute drive or 20 minute leisurely stroll from Loch Lomond View.
