Loch Katrine

Loch Katrine is a freshwater loch in the district of Stirling, Scotland. It is roughly 8 miles long by 2/3 of a mile wide and runs the length of Strath Gartney. The main access points for Loch Katrine are either via Trossachs Pier at the loch's eastern end or Stronachlachar towards the western end of the loch. Trossachs Pier essentially consists of a parking space, pier, gift shop and cafe, which are open from the first to the last sailing of the cruise boats. On the northern shore are the Brenchoile hunting lodge and on the western end of the loch, Stronachlachar, the Royal Cottage, Culligart and Glasahoile (Gaelic: Glas-choille "greywood") The roads and paths do not circle the loch completely, as the southern road stops at Glasahoile.
