Loch Lomond sweeps through volcanic hills, rocky summits, mystical woodland and picturesque farmland, cutting through the Highland Boundary Fault.

Diverse terrain and rich wildlife make Loch Lomond a popular holiday destination, with so much to see and do. Endless hiking trails, lakeside walks, mountainous adventures, and trips await, connecting you to Scotland like never before.

Part of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, the loch spans 27.5 sq. miles, making it the largest loch by surface area and the second-largest by water volume (Loch Ness takes that crown). 

Because it straddles the Highland Boundary Fault, you can experience lowland and highland terrain on the same trip. You can see changes in geology from the islands of Inchmurrin and Inchcailloch – while the south has farmland and flat fields, the north boasts mountainous and rough terrain. 

From dazzling blue waters and red deer galloping through the hills to starlit skies viewed from your own hot tub, holidays at Loch Lomond always make memories of a lifetime.

Loch Lomond covers a staggering 27.5 sq. miles, so there are countless hot tub lodges to stay at. From traditional cottages to glazed lodges with panoramic views, there’s something for everyone with families and couples well catered for.

Of course, some hot tub holidays stand out above all others. Here are our favourite hot tub lodges in Loch Lomond:

Balmaha Lodges

Located on the shores of Loch Lomond, Balmaha Lodges is a small, private development of fifteen luxury lodges with hot tubs. These range from small studios that sleep up to two people to larger apartments that sleep up to eight people.

Why are Balmaha Lodges so good? It’s all about prime location. You are within touching distance of a boat ride to Inchcailloch (which you can see from the shore), situated on the east side of Loch Lomond down from Arrochymore.

The B837 is the only road to Balmaha, a small village wrapped in glorious highland terrain, with only rocky terrain and fields for as far as the eye can see. Balmaha has great cafes and pubs, with the Oak Tree Inn and favourite among locals.

Ardlui Lochside Lodges

Situated deep in the highland territory at the northern tip of the West Highland Line, you will find Ardlui Lochside Lodges. This small, exclusive development includes seven beautifully appointed hot tub lodges in stunning scenery.

Ardlui Lochside Lodges is the best-kept secret of Loch Lomond, with a 3* star hotel if you want to stay just a few nights. The lodges offer pure luxury and a true home away from home with hot tubs, saunas, and high-end self-catering facilities.

Try water sports like water-skiing, speedboat tours and kayaking, or try cycling, horse riding, golf, fishing and quad biking. In other words, Ardlui Lochside Lodges offers it all.

Auchendennan Farm Cottages 

Auchendennan Farm has ten stunning luxury cottages, all with a hot tub to soak away the daily grind. Our favourite property is Auchendennan Farm Cottage, which sleeps up to six people with no expense spared.

There’s also the Oak Lodge, a modern stone and timber build that sleeps up to four with an outdoor fire and a hot tub. Panoramic windows and doors give you a prime view of the stunning scenery across farmland.

Auchendennan Farm is located just a short walk inland from Loch Lomond, in the heart of the national park up from Cameron House. You can see the island of Inchmurrin. Golf lovers will also appreciate being close to Carrick Golf Course.

What to do in Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond puts you out in the wilderness, where artificial light and the hustle and bustle of the urban jungle can’t touch you. It is a place where you can relax and enjoy yourself in a hot tub, without the stress or hurriedness of modern life.

There are plenty of things to do in Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park after taking in the beautiful landscape. 

Take a boat trip out on Loch Lomond

Boat trips on Loch Lomond unlock even more magic, offering rare views of the Scottish terrain from a fresh perspective. There are several operators, including Portnellan Farm for speedboat tours and Cruise Loch Lomond for slow cruises.

Another option is the Balmaha Mail Boat, which ferries you from Balmaha Boatyard to the island of Inchailloch, a tranquil place to explore.

Loch Lomond Bird of Prey Centre

The Loch Lomond Bird of Prey Centre is home to over 35 birds of prey, including Scotland’s indigenous hunters like the Golden Eagle. At £9.50 per adult and £5 for children, it’s an affordable day out for the whole family.

The Centre is located at Balloch village in West Dunbartonshire. It’s easy to get to and has a car park, and it’s also 10-minutes from the train station.

Spend the day at Loch Lomond Shores

Loch Lomond Shores is the place for shopping, food and drink and leisure activities at Loch Lomond. It offers a great day out, with a TreeZone, a SEA LIFE, a mini-train, boat hire and a variety of take-out and eat-in restaurants.

Hike, hike, and hike again

Loch Lomond is home to some of the best hiking trails in Scotland, great for those looking to book up a dog friendly hot tub holiday. Our favourites include Ben Lomond, which is accessible from the Rowardennan car park, and Conic Hill, which is great for a quick hike (45mins) across the hills.  

Glen Ogle Trail takes in the Glen Ogle viaduct and takes you across disused railways and military roads if you have four hours to kill. Our favourite challenging hike is Ben More, the tallest of Loch Lomond’s Munro’s.
