Sunset Cruise on Loch Lomond, Scotland
Scotland is famous for its Lochs and Loch Lomond arguably is - the- most popular tourist destination. There are so many ways to explore this area: by boat (cruise), by kayak, by foot, by cycle and of course by car, even by a plane! We will be discovering all the ways in all different seasons, because we're lucky to call this place home and we will be sharing our experiences, tips, and the advice of the best places and the means of travelling to them here on this blog, so don't forget to subscribe here to get the blog updates from us.
In this article, we want to tell you about the cruise that we took in July and loved it so much!
Arrive to Balloch
Balloch is a small village located at the southerly point of the Loch Lomond. You can get here by direct train from central Glasgow and it only takes 40 min (Glasgow Queen Street/ Central Station). The cruise operates just across the station, but we suggest to plan your trip so you also visit a Balloch Castle Park and Loch Lomond Shores.
The evening cruise is 75 minutes long and departs from Balloch at 7pm. One thing to note that this particular cruise is only operated during the July-August, so check the sunset times first. I'd say the chances are to see the actual sunset, given a good forecast for the day is only in the end of August. In July you'll get to see the golden hour, which is equally spectacular
