Loch Lomond waterbus service extended

LOCH LOMOND’S waterbus service has been extended to take in additional locations, giving visitors more choice when exploring the area. 

The waterbus will operate a new service between Loch Lomond Shores in Balloch to Inchmurrin and Inchcailloch, giving people access to two of the lake’s most popular islands.

Fifty minutes by train from Glasgow, Balloch is the southern gateway to the National Park. Holidaymakers can also travel from Glasgow directly to Arrochar/Tarbet train station and after a ten-minute walk to Tarbet pier, they will be able to explore the most northern parts of Loch Lomond by waterbus. Both options are an excellent choice for walkers and cyclists.

The service between Ardlui and Ardleish provides access to points along the West Highland Way. In addition, there’s increased frequency of the service between Luss and Balmaha providing more opportunities to explore Conic Hill, the Millennium Trail, and the Hidden Treasures Path.

For those wanting to explore beyond Loch Lomond, the waterbus can be taken to Inversnaid and from there it’s a walk or cycle ride (on hilly terrain) to Stronachlachar. From there, visitors can sail on Loch Katrine – made famous by Sir Walter Scott’s poem The Lady of the Lake – or cycle on relatively flat terrain around the lake. 

Mairi Bell, head of tourism for Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park said: ‘This year, it’s easier than ever for visitors to leave their car at home and explore Loch Lomond and beyond. We’ve seen a rise in people wanting to take in the spectacular scenery of the National Park by foot, by bike, by boat, or by a combination of the three. Now, more than ever, visitors can join up their journeys and experience a wide range of activities that allow them to make the most of their visit.’
