Loch Katrine

 

Loch Katrine is a beautiful loch in the Trossachs, in Scotland.  It is the main water supply for the city of Glasgow.

Loch Katrine was a popular tourist spot in Victorian times and the  steamship SS Sir Walter Scott has been sailing on the loch for over 100 years.   The reason a steamship is preferred to a diesel engined one is because of the risk of contaminating the water.

There is a single track road 3/4 of the way round the Loch and cycles can be hired from the Trossachs pier.   A popular place to stop for a picnic is Brenachoile Point, as well as picnic tables there are spectacular views of the loch and the surrounding hills.

This image shows Brenachoile Point in the right foreground and the peaks in the distance are known as the Arrochar Alps.

The Arrochar Alps consist of Ben Arthur (the Cobbler), Beinn Ime, Ben Vane, Ben Vorlich and Beinn Narnain
