Loch Lomond, the largest body of freshwater in mainland Britain, has been used by generations of Scots and visitors for boating, water skiing, bathing and other less active pleasures such as picnicking or just enjoying the unique atmosphere and scenery.


With a multitude of inlets and islands to investigate and explore, as well as large expanses of open water, Loch Lomond has something special to offer every kind of sailor. There are speed restriction areas for powered craft at Milarrochy Bay and around the islands between Balmaha and Luss. These parts of the loch are particularly suitable for peaceful, relaxed sailing. For anyone looking for more competitive thrills, Loch Lomond Sailing Club, located at the north end of Milarrochy Bay, has a regular calendar of organised races for members throughout the year.
