Cruises and Boat Trips

Loch Katrine Experience - Sail on The Steamship Sir Walter Scott

Sail on stunning Loch Katrine aboard the iconic Steamship Sir Walter Scott. This trip is an absolute "must do" when visiting the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. The scenery around the loch is breathtaking and the area is steeped in history, from Rob Roy MacGregor, to the romantic poem "Lady of The Lake" by Sir Walter Scott, and the brilliant feat of Victorian engineering which allows Loch Katrine to provide a clean and wholesome water supply for the City of Glasgow.

There are special events at Loch Katrine throughout the year - Romantic Valentine’s Cruises, Family Fun Weekends, Jazz Cruises, Sail with Santa and lots more - see
