Why Visit Loch Lubnaig?

Well, Loch Lubnaig is a small but perfectly formed Scottish Loch, surrounded by tree-lined mountain slopes and can be found in the central Highlands.  It’s a popular destination for holiday makers, outdoor enthusiasts including paddlers, swimmers and walkers, but is also just a great place to go for a bit of peace and quiet.

The route of the former Callander and Oban Railway runs along the west shore of the loch. This route has now been converted to a part of the National Cycle Network’s “Route 7” allowing cyclists and walkers to travel the 9 miles (14 km) between Callander and Strathyre.

It’s name as you might have guessed, is derived from the Gaelic Lùbnaig, meaning crooked. When you explore the loch for yourself, you’ll be able to understand why it got that name.

It’s definitely worth stopping in the area, either for a few days at somewhere like Forest Holidays Strathyre or even just for an hour or two.  We run regular activities like canoeing, paddleboarding, axe-throwing and archery nearby, if you have time to spare.
