Welcome to Scotland’s largest freshwater loch! Countless travelers have fallen in love with its picturesque charms down the ages - from royalty to literary giants like Sir Walter Scott. And it’s so very easy to see why. Its myriad small islands, boat cruises and the towering flanks of Ben Lomond make it a brilliant destination for fans of the great outdoors - be they serious hikers eager to explore the national park that bears the loch’s name, or simply looking to sit back and gaze at the sights. What’s more, it is not far from the hustle and bustle of Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city, with its mix of cultural attractions. And those who wish to explore the wider area will find the walking paradise of the Arrochar Alps a short distance to the west and the iconic Glencoe and its ski slopes just an hour’s drive to the north. Whatever your reason for traveling, this destination is so famous it has been immortalized in traditional song - meaning there are copious Airbnb vacation rental options from which to choose. And these are some of the very best when planning your trip to “the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond”. Read on to find out more!
