Loch Lomond

Description

Loch Lomond is a large Scottish lake, not far from Glasgow, and a very popular holiday destination. The area feels more friendly than other parts of the Scottish Highlands, maybe due to the forests on the lake's banks. The surrounding mountains are truly wild and offer a contrast. The popular West Highland Way skirts the lake.
