A Wonderful Canoeing adventure on the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond
Anyone who is planning a sightseeing adventure in Scotland, should certainly include a Canoeing trip on the world-famous Loch Lomond.
Vacations do not come with better scenery than what this magical landscape has to offer, and whatever your interests there is a tailor made package of activity plans for you and your family to enjoy.
One of the very best ways to experience the loch (lake) itself - which 100% needs to be on your ‘to do’ list - is a canoe trip on the stunning 23-mile long stretch of water.
It is surrounded on all sides by rugged, ground down mountains that are showing the effects from being battered for thousands of years pre and post Ice Age.
Loch Lomond is the largest loch in Great Britain, has the most islands on it for a single loch, and also the largest individual island in Inchmurrin.
It has around another 30 islands, some of which are still inhabited. One that's not but has a fantastic history is Scottish National Heritage’s National Nature Reserve Inchcailloch, meaning ‘Island of the cowled woman’, due to Saint Kentigerna who travelled over from Ireland to preach Christianity there over 1,400 years ago.
We also have Inchgalbraith, a small crannog (man made island), the building of which would have been quite an engineering feat. Not only did they build the island, however, but the inhabitants at the time also went a step further and built a castle on it.
Inchconnachan, perhaps even more than the other islands, has a wealth of wildlife, much of it rare and protected, such as Capercaillie, Fallow Deer, Roe Deer, Otter, Osprey or even Peregrine Falcon.
Wherever you take your canoe on Loch Lomond, we can ensure there will be so much to keep you mesmerised.
From the second you push the canoe from the shore, take your first stroke of the paddle, travel round your first bay and sneak up on your first deer, the stunning scenery of this special holiday adventure will not be forgotten in a hurry.
It matters not if you're a beginner or more experienced canoeist, Loch Lomond is a safe and beautiful place with so much, wildlife, history, charm and character that when you experience it for the first time you'll fall in love and yearn to return to this part of Scotland again and again.
