Overview

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 took a very nice cruise on Loch Katrine during our tour of he Highlands. The found the lake very beautiful and the cruise to be delightful. One of the crew advised us about the lake and the surrounding area.

Last year it was Sir Walter Scott I took a cruise on, this time-Lady of the Lake. It is perhaps less glamorous, newer ship but the experience is just as pleasurable. In not-so good-a weather, which is not uncommon in Scotland it is arguably even...More

Great way to spend a couple of hours. Being Steam powered there is no smell of diesel no vibration just great views and an open bar. What more could you want. The Sir Walter Scott is in great condition and the staff are very good.

Hi There, as it is inland water the loch is usually quite smooth, we do get the occasional ripple but it's not bad. I do get sixk on the sea myself but Loch Katrine should be ok for you!
