Loch Lubnaig

[Loch Lubnaig]

Quintessentially Trossachs, but (slightly) less busy than the lochs to the south, Loch Lubnaig snakes through hills sprinkled in forest for around 4 miles, fed primarily by the River Balvaig and drained by the River Leny. The lazy option is to view it from the car from the roller-coaster A84. Better views can be achieved from near the numerous parking areas along the lochside, still without expending much effort. If you yearn to escape the swarms of other tourists, walk or cycle south from Strathyre (or north from the Pass of Leny) on the disused railway line now used by the Rob Roy Way long-distance path, which follows the relatively tranquil western shoreline. (You'll probably still be able to hear the A84 though.)

Name: Loch Lubnaig ★☆☆
Location (southernmost car park): A84 north of Callander, G.R.: NN 586106 ///people.slip.angry
Anything else? Bring some small change, as most of the lochside car parks charge a fee. Nearest toilets are at Strathyre (north) or Callander (south).
