Oh, the bonnie banks of loch Lomond. With miles and miles of coastline the enchanting Loch has won the hearts of both the Scots and its visitors. In fact, there is a traditional song dedicated to the serene water and beautiful shore. You can cruise on the loch or take in the views from the village of Luss. It’s a mere 40 minute drive from Glasgow to the village.
This is one of my favourite lochs I have visited in Scotland. With a 90 minute drive from highland town, Inverness, you will reach the majestic destination. The water stretches as far as the eye can see. In the glassy pond you can see the reflection of the surrounding peaks. As if the view of the loch is not pleasant enough, you can find the famous Eilean Donan Castle nestled on the coastline edge.
Loch Fyne is a must! Tucked away in the Argyll prefecture, 80 minutes from Glasgow. The views are not the only reason to visit this destination. Here you can indulge yourself in the famous Oysters and seafood of the Loch, dabble in some ‘fyne’ whiskies, and arouse your tastebuds at the Fyne Ales Brewery. If you have time up your sleeve, I highly recommend visiting the Inveraray castle as well.
No trip to Scotland would be complete without visiting the iconic Loch Ness Monster. Approximately 37km away from Inverness you will find the most world renown loch in Scotland. The perfect home for Nessie, plunges to depths of 230m. The waters stretch out for over 35km, giving her room to move. However, if you are not interested in the mystery of this creature there is another worthy attraction on the loch. The ruins or Urquhart castle hosts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. A perfect place to learn about the history of the Highlands and the clans that once inhabited the land.
