Immortalised in song, Loch Lomond is the largest freshwater expanse in mainland Britain. Mountains loom to the north, while a scattering of islands can be found at the south end of the loch. Pretty villages such as Luss line the loch’s western shores.

 

The Trossachs is ‘Rob Roy Country’ where the famous outlaw hid from his pursuers in the dense forests. The area was much loved by Scottish writer and poet Sir Walter Scott whose famous poem The Lady of the Lake was inspired by Loch Katrine, which you can cruise on the steamship SS Sir Walter Scott.
