Scotland's Boating Lochs

Scotland's Lochs

There are over 31,000 fresh water lochs in Scotland though only about 400 of them are of substantial size. They range from the longest at 25 miles long (Loch Awe) to the deepest at 328m deep (Loch Morar) to the largest: Loch Ness and Loch Lomond. The name "loch" comes from the Gaelic for small lake or pool and make sure you pronounce it properly - the "ch" is pronounced like the "ch" in Bach.

Boating Holidays Through Scotland's Lochs

The most popular boating lochs are those that make up the Caledonian Canal through the Great Glen. Stretching 60 miles form Fort William to Inverness the waterways are a mixture of canals and lakes including the legendary Loch Ness.

You start your cruise at Laggan Locks from which you can cruise south through Loch Lochy or North through Loch Oich or alternatively you can start from Inverness at the north end of Loch Ness. Both ports offer a large choice of modern cruisers that sleep up to 10 people.

Whichever you choose the UK's most stunning mountain scenery await you on your journey through the Great Glen. You will find the the shores of the lochs dotted with hidden coves and inlets along with beautiful highland towns, villages and castles for you to explore.

If you so wish you will find a great deal to do on a Scotland Loch boating holiday, some of the possible activities include fishing on Loch Oich, walking and climbing, eagle and osprey (as well as monster) spotting or even partaking in water sports at the Great Glen Water Park.
