Loch Lomond Shores

[View from Loch Lomond Shores - the paddle steamer is being used as a restaurant while being refurbished]

Loch Lomond Shores is probably the busiest part of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, barely ten miles from the outskirts of Glasgow. A row of tourist-orientated shops curve gracefully around the southern tip of Loch Lomond, dominated by Drumkinnon Tower which houses a shiny new aquarium. For obvious reasons this is a good rainy-day option, although in clear weather there are also spectacular views north across the water towards mountainous country, and a relatively new bird of prey centre.
