Common questions about Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond is a popular spot for open water swimmers, and it’s safe to swim provided you follow the safety guidelines, as it may be difficult for others to detect you while you are low in the water. For those wanting a challenge, there is even a yearly event aimed at introducing as many people as possible to this new swimming sport.

Loch Lomond stretches for around 24 miles (39 kilometres), extending southward in almost a triangular form. Its slow moving constructed floor reaches a depth of 623 feet, despite its surface being just 23 feet (7 metres) above sea level (190 metres).

Loch Lomond is definitely a place for fishing enthusiasts. There are a variety of fish from sea trout, brown trout, hybrid bream to arctic char, chub, eel, and pike.

Camping in the wild in Scotland is entirely legal. Unfortunately, however, this doesn’t apply to all areas in the country as certain areas require a permit, this includes Loch Lomond. However, between the months of March and September, permits are ONLY necessary for wild camping on Loch Lomond’s shoreline. This means you do not require a permit for the winter months.
