Visiting Loch Katrine
Loch Katrine is about one hour’s drive from us here at Loch Lomond Waterfront. There are many reasons why you may have heard of this beautiful loch in the Scottish Highlands. The legendary Rob Roy MacGregor was born on Loch Katrine’s northern shores in 1671. It provides the setting for Sir Walter Scot’s poem The Lady of the Lake. And also in the Rossini opera, La Donna del Lago, which was based on Scott’s poem. It features in the Scottish bagpipe march, The Athole Highlanders Farewell to Loch Katrine. And in 1859, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert visited to open the Loch Katrine Aqueduct. Most recently, Brenachoile Point on the loch became a filming location in an episode of the TV series Outlander. Today, the loch is a popular tourist destination, great for walks, cruises and sightseeing.
Climb aboard at Trossachs Pier and embark on a magical tour of the loch. Enjoy a cruise on the historic Sir Walter Scott steamship, or one of the other ships operated by Loch Katrine cruises. The SS Sir Walter Scott was first launched in 1900 and is still going strong. Sail past the magnificent Ben A’an and Ben Venue and see many other wonderful sights of the Trossachs.
Trossachs Pier is the departure point for loch cruises. There is a large pay and display car park and facilities on site. The Steamship Café offers tasty meals and refreshments. And Katrine Gifts is perfect pitstop to grab some local gifts.
Walking and Cycling
There is a lovely walk along the lochside, which you can combine with a cruise. The surrounding area is great for walking too, with routes such as the Great Trossachs Forest Path and Primrose Hill. Cycle hire is also available from Katrine Wheelz.Book Accommodation

Where to start, I always knew I wanted to get married at Loch Lomond, just had to find the right venue and I was blown away with what The Waterfront had to offer.
