Loch Lomond

Hi all


We have just got to Loch Lomond for a long weekend. Right now Nemanda is in the car park, but all being well will be moored tomorrow by the bridge . We are at Auchenheglish Lodges place is lovely. It's the south part of the loch about 15 mins out of Glasgow

So off tomorrow and Sunday to cruise the loch. Any recommendations for places to go, stop for a pint or three? No driving we can moor at the bridge and walk to the lodge what a good do

Hi Neil think you've picked a good weekend for it. I pass it often going to the West but never use it prefer the sea! Hadd goes often and Poly and Davie use it frequently you should contact them for the places. I know there are many and you will not be dissapointed as most Hotels have jetties.
Enjoy

The oak tree inn at balmaha is a nice wee place to go for some refreshments. It's on the east side. On the west there is luss and up the top end is Ardlui. Scott that runs the place is a top bloke. Enjoy.

Neil, hope you have a great time.

Would love to go there myself but it seems harder trying to convince my lot than the work it takes to get there

The restaurant/bar on Inchmurrin is nice. Pubs up the west side to consider are The Lodge on Loch Lomond at Luss, the Inverbeg at Inverbeg, the Tarbet Hotel at Tarbet, The Ardlui Hotel at Ardlui. On the east side the Inversnaid Hotel is a nice place and as already mentioned, the Oak Tree Inn at Balmaha (straight across the loch from you) is a nice wee place.
If you go to the head of the Loch and manage to get moored try a visit to the Drovers Inn at Inverarnan, its a bit of a distance up the River Falloch. Nice traditional Inn with a lovely open fire.

For scenic cruises a run through the narrows between Inchtavannach and Inchconnachan is nice with some lovely wee bays for mooring in. The head (North) of the loch is by far the most scenic area and best seen from the water. It's to be a good weekend so enjoy it.

+1 for the drovers.

As said, up the river to a fork. The LH branch is the mortal remains of a canal. Tie up to a tree in the v of the fork. The canal has less current, but more underwater hazards. You'll see the path to the pub when ashore- it's about a 5 min walk from there.

You can get a download of the loch byelaws off Google. It shows the speed limits.

Enjoy- looks like you got some good weather for it.
