If you’d like to take things at your own pace on the water, there are lots of options available.
If you would like to bring your own boat with you, please see our boating safety (including 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.
Invasive non-native species are one of the key threats to nature in the National Park. Aquatic plants and animals can sometimes be unwittingly transported into a new environment on people’s equipment such as wetsuits, kayaks and fishing gear. The introduction of new species can threaten the delicate ecosystems in the National Park.
Every time you leave any body of water (in or outside of the National Park), please follow the national ‘Check, Clean, Dry’ guidance:
