Loch Lomond is the largest "lake" in the UK, it has some speed restrictions in relatively sensible areas close to shore (11 km/hr as I recall), and the limit everywhere else is I think 70km/hr.
[QUOTE] Is it on Loch Ness Lake ?[/QUOTE ] There is no speed restriction on Loch Ness, But: 1. It's several hours drive from 99% of the population. 2. It's in a picturesque place but at high speed it would soon become boring, unless Nessie popped out! 3. It's very deep, fed by melting snow, and doesn't get the benefit of the gulf stream so is freezing. 4. There are speed restrictions on the canals that join loch Ness to Loch Linnhe (a sea loch that joins the Atlantic - and all the amazing West of Scotland scenery, islands, wildlife, and small places to visit), and to the Dornoch firth (a river eastury, flowing into the north Sea, which is renowned for its whales and dolphins etc.)
So most people who might look to keep a boat in Loch Ness are not looking for race speeds, and most of the people who would get most excited about max speed are too far from loch Ness to benefit from it.
