Holidays in Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond is a two minute drive or 25-30 minute walk from The Old Schoolhouse. The Loch is the biggest loch in the UK, surrounded by amazing mountains, including Ben Lomond. The views from the shores of Loch Lomond are breathtaking, and even more impressive from the peak of Ben Lomond, which can be climbed from Rowardennan, seven miles from The Old Schoolhouse.

 

There are some lovely walks for your dog, as The Old Schoolhouse is situated on the alternative West Highland Way route.  If you turn left out of The Old Schoolhouse and walk for approximately 25-30 minutes you will reach Balmaha.  Here you will find Conic Hill on your right by the visitors centre. Conic Hill is a sharp little summit rising above Balmaha. Right on the Highland Boundary Fault, this short hill walk offers fantastic views over Loch Lomond and its many islands.  After this breathtaking hill walk, why not stop at The Oak Tree Inn, opposite the visitors centre, for refreshments in the popular local bar and restaurant serving Scottish food and drink.  There is also a village shop and St Mocha Coffee Shop and Ice-cream Parlour.  

After the village of Balmaha, you can walk close to Loch Lomond on a very scenic stretch that leads on to Rowardennan. 

 

No visit to Loch Lomond would be complete without taking to the water. So why not try a wide range of boat tours, including rowing, pedalling, sailing, fishing, speedboating or even a speedboating pub tour at Loch Lomond Leisure in Rowardennan: https://lochlomond-scotland.com

 

You can experience a piece of history by visiting Rob Roy’s Cave near Inversnaid in the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Forest Park. You can also boat from Milarrochy bay and cycle and walk along the nearby West Highland Way and Conich Hill.
