Description:

Welcome to Loch Katrine - one of Scotland's special places.

Just as special...

Welcome to Loch Katrine - one of Scotland's special places.

Just as special as the magnificent scenery is the famous steamship "Sir Walter Scott" which itself has been a landmark in The Trossachs for over a hundred years. Your visit is not complete without a cruise on this wonderful ship, or on "Lady of the Lake", the perfect way to experience the beauty of Loch Katrine. Perhaps you'll just want to relax with a coffee or a meal in the Brenachoile Cafe Bar, shop for a souvenir and take a stroll by the shore, or bring the family for a cycle trip?

We have been here multiple times. Mostly we travel on the steamer, the Sir Walter Scott which is a beautiful ship and worth travelling to Loch Katrine just to view. Usually we take the trip to Stronachlachar and cycle back. It's around 13 miles and hilly but so peaceful and scenic with so much wildlife to see. There is the... More

On a calm day, the Loch reflects the hills and trees around it (and the steamboat when that is sailing). During the winter, the car park can be icy and difficult; the path can be very dangerous - but worth trying for the gorgeous views.

Lovely Loch, especially on a sunny day. You can cycle / walk around and the area in general is so lovely. There is a plenty of parking and there is restaurant with nice food. Good for a day out.

I was staying at Lochside Cottage at Stronachlachar so my cycle started from there. The route takes you along the north side of Loch Katrine on a very quiet private road, and it is simply stunning. It's about 13 miles to Trossachs Pier, where if you want you can get a boat back to Stronaclachar, (check the times) or if... More

Had a great trip on the Loch on the lady of the lake. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the Loch and surrounding area. A shame the steam boat wasn't available as the website suggested, but that's part of touring off season. Well worth a visit and the home made soup very warming.

We went down to the dock side to have a look round even knowing the season was over . So we're surprised to see boat trips were still on but not on the steamer. We also had our dogs with us and they were allowed into the cabin as it was so cold. Nice touch from the staff who were... More

We spent a morning on the two hour cruise on the Walter scott steamboat. The commentary was excellent.. mind the Rob Roy coffee was better! The boat does say you can take your dogs, but cant go inside, so we left ours at home! Next time we will do the cruise one way and cycle or walk back! Walking around... More

Spent a superb afternoon and evening on the SS Sir Walter Scott, an afternoon sail up Loch Katrine (Rob Roy Special Hot Chocolate laced with whisky 👍) on return to Trossachs Pier burgers and more Hot Chocolate. The finale was a absolutely fantastic firework display put on by the steamship crew. The entertainment for the event was supplied by "Shaky"... More

The trip on The Sir Walter Scott was very enjoyable and the views are stunning: all the more so with the Autumn tints along the shoreline
