History of Loch Lomond

With Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park spanning over 720sq miles, it is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. Ben Lomond stands proud over Loch Lomond, the largest expanse of freshwater in Britain. Twenty three miles long and five miles at the widest point, this is one of the most romantic views within the area. Medieval castles and fairytale hideaways are just a small selection of the beautiful wedding venues known to Loch Lomond.

Being in Loch Lomond amongst peaceful surroundings playing host to some of Scotland’s most beautiful wildlife such as the capercaillie, freshwater pearl and Scotland’s mascot of the black grouse, you forget all the stress and strains of city life and it is hard to imagine that Glasgow, one of the UK’s busiest cities is only half an hour’s drive away.

Loch Lomond is defined by a fault line which separates the Lowlands with the Highlands, each housing striking differences to the landscape. The Trossachs area covering Aberfoyle and Callander are regarded as the miniature highlands with misty glens and freshwater lochs, in contrast to the Argyll Forest with breathtaking views from Glen Croe down to the wooded coast of Argyll.
