We reached the village and the first thing we did was go to the lake shore which is sandy and larger than you would expect for a lake.
The kids and we enjoyed paddling in the cool waters.
"Loch Lomond...white pebbled shores on which its gentle billows murmur, like a miniature ocean, its promontories rising from the deep water, rich in wild flowers and ferns" (John MacCulloch 1824 - The Highlands and Western Islands of Scotland)
One of the highlights of our visit last time was a speed boat ride. Last time it had cost about £35 for the family to hire one boat for one trip. This time we were being charged £10 per person which came to £80 for a short trip. We had to give it a miss.
The village itself is very picturesque and we enjoyed the short walk around, including the tea shop and a small art exhibition with some really beautiful pieces.
Beside the village there is also a lovely wooded area which the kids could explore. This was one of the nicest places in the Trossachs National Park, but one of many lovely spots.
