About Loch Katrine - Trossachs Pier
Loch Katrine is a unique place, steeped in history and surrounded by magnificent scenery, the epitomy of the Trossachs landscape.
Synonomous with the birth of Scottish Tourism Loch Katrine has strong links to writers like Sir Walter Scott and Wordsworth. Indeed Sir Walter Scott's famous poem ' Lady of the Lake' was set here.
Things to Do
Take a cruise on the SS Sir Walter Scott steamship (www.lochkatrine.com). If you are a keen walker or cyclist you can return along the 12.5 miles of North Shore Road incorporating part of the Art & Literature Trail which highlights historic points of interest around the Loch. For a shorter walk follow the road to Brenachoile Point (approx 2 miles) or for something more strenuous with inspiring views take the Primrose Hill trail.
