With a multitude of inlets to investigate and islands to explore, as well as large expanses of open water, Loch Lomond has something special to offer every kind of sailor. There are extended speed restriction areas for powered craft at Milarrochy Bay and around the islands between Balmaha and Luss. These parts of the loch are particularly suitable for peaceful, relaxed sailing.
There are also the sailing opportunities on Loch Goil, Loch Long the Holy Loch and the Clyde.
For anyone looking for more competitive thrills, Loch Lomond Sailing Club, located at the north end of Milarrochy Bay, has a regular calendar of organised races for members throughout the year. There are also sailing clubs at Loch Venachar, Loch Earn and Loch Ard.
If you would like to bring your own boat with you, please see our boating safety, Notices to Mariners and Loch Lomond Byelaw information. If you’d like to use any craft with a motor on Loch Lomond, you need register it with the National Park Authority and display the registration number on your craft.
Please be aware that from 1st April 2017, the slipway at Milarrochy Bay will no longer be in operation.
Launch facilities will continue to operate from the Duncan Mills Memorial Slipway in Balloch seven days a week.
