Loch Lomond was once the stronghold of the ancient Celtic Earls of Lennox . The Clan Macfarlane guarded the pass from Loch Long to Loch Lomond from the early 1200s. Discover how they skirmished with Vikings, defended their Island Castles, helped King Robert the Bruce, fought at Bannockburn and how the moon became their lantern!
This one hour circular tour of Loch Lomond enjoys views of the magnificent Ben Lomond and passes a number of Loch Lomond's stately homes and castles along the shoreline. Venture out towards Inchmurrin Island- the largest of Loch Lomond's 33 islands and home to the ancient remains of Lennox Castle, which in the 14th century sheltered a fugitive Robert the Bruce before he was to become King of Scots
