Take time to stop and savour
Oct 2021
This loch is along side one of the main roads of this part of the Highlands. However, it would be better put as the main road is along side of the Loch. Since it is set at rightangles to many of the other lochs, it can be mirror calm when the others are ruffled. This loch deserves your time.

Beautiful scenery, difficult parking, dreadful, yet expensive food.

Having stopped recently for a break at Loch Lubnaig after a long drive we were looking forward to a rest and having something to eat. We were informed by the snack bar assistant, that it was too late to order bacon rolls because the lunchtime menu was now in operation, we opted for hot dogs and waited for these to be prepared.
The hotdogs were eventually ready and having been offered the option of onions, we wrongly assumed that these would be freshly fried and would accompany the hot dogs as a topping.
Wrong!!! 😱 The onions were dried onion flakes and sprinkled over the sausage which had been placed on an unbuttered roll.
The penultimate blow was yet to be delivered when we were informed that the cost of these dubious items from the ‘lunch’ menu was……wait for it!!!……£11.00 for two. Perhaps the cost reflected the fact that Covid had caused a loss of earnings over the last while, but never the less the quality of the food was very disappointing and the cost exorbitant.
The view over the Loch is lovely and the folks indulging in ‘wild swimming’ offered amusing entertainment as my friend and I struggled to deal with the difficult business of swallowing what turned out to be the final insult of this unfortunate ‘pit stop’ ……stale bread rolls. We have enjoyed nice bacon rolls many times in the past, so let’s hope that this was a one off. A word of advice to the proprietors……..if you are going to charge high prices for your snacks, at least make sure that you give value for money and that your food is fresh!

Beautiful loch by main road above Callander en route to Lochearnhead. 3rd carpark out of Callander "The Cabin" is great. Pay & display, cheap parking, beautiful beach, good to swim, paddleboard, canoe from. Loos, coffee, tea, freshly baked cake. Never busy as carpark isnt big. Lovely place on good weather day.

Another stunning loch

Stunningly beautiful loch, although close to a busy main road. Good place to break a journey and dip one's toes in the loch.

Fabulous service from the cafe on the roadside side of the loch. Friendly staff and good quality food. Great place to relax, swim, sail, fish and have a barbecue on pre set frame (for portable types only.) Toilets on site are spotless.
Our favourite place.

Invigorating visit

After being let loose from stay at home regulations, we drove up to loch lubnaig and parked at the picnic area where it was very quiet. Had a wee picnic with us which we consumed whilst watching the world go by. We managed to get some lovely sunny weather but really cold wind and intermittent snow showers but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

Quick swim and relaxing in the sun.
Sep 2020
Stopped at a parking area and walked down to the shore with our chairs and swimming bits.
Had a splash around in the completely clear water - very cold but that's what you sign up for!
Beautiful views, very serene. Lots of spots for parking along the Loch and various spots with toilets/cafes.
