The restaurant/bar on Inchmurrin is nice.
+1 and its well priced. if you are rich cameron house is also worth a visit a bit less pricey is duck bay.

A great place where many a bbq and beer has been had.

Off to register soon, thanks for all the advice . We will buy the nav chart it's £12, hopefully that will pinpoint all the recommends. I'll post some pics all being well. Lot of mist at the moment but its forecast to burn off by 12

+1 for all of the above pubs, all excellent and good food as well, brilliant place for ribs, we've been going for 30+ years and well done to Amanda for thinking of such a good plan, I'll buy her a pint in Fu's in April

Actually I've not been for a few years. But, here are some observations:

- this time of year is a good time to go, the usual peak periods are when you get the Glasgow neds around the loch, its too cold for them now!

- not everywhere will be open this time of year but I think you should have no problems at the Drovers (very top of the loch) or at the Inversnaid hotel (North East side, has its own little harbour). I've not been to either for a while so can't comment on food etc.

- The pier in Tarbert provides somewhere to get ashore (I had a "life saving" bacon roll and coffee one very cold January!). The tourist boats probably aren't running but if they are then pick a spot sensibly where you don't upset them.

- At the other end of the loch, Luss itself never impresses me - but you will get good food at the Lodge on the Loch. I've never arrived by boat - but you could probably park right on the beach there (beware the seaplane used to use that area so make sure you aren't going to be in the way).

- The island closest to Balloch has a "hotel" which serves food. it has a "pier" and is OK. It may not be open in Feb?

At this time of the year the rangers are usually very friendly and helpful they may provide other suggestions.

Definitely some Celt in me somewhere. I have dead relatives buried in Sanquar, (think that's how you spell it) apparently.

Back to today. Mist never really lifted, an it rained on and off but we kinda expected it. Navigation was hard when all we really could see was fog banks

Here is Amanda all excited to be off

Then part way in as the wind and rain got to her

Then when she realised it wasn't going to get any better lol

Here are some shots of the day, it was very misty
