Scotland: Cruising Loch Lomond

 photo 01_zpsf48f9829.jpg
Between all the things that have been going on lately, I almost forgot that I still have plenty of pictures to share from Scotland. Posting about our travels there has brought me so much joy because I get to re-live all the beautiful memories – it is almost as if I’m standing at the shores of Loch Lomond again feeling the sun on my skin and the wind breezing through my hair.
 
There are a few different companies that are offering cruises across Loch Lomond, but as we were traveling during off-season (September) most of them had closed service for the year already. The Loch Lomond water taxi is a less fancy and more practical way to get across the lake (think Public Transport), but offers a great possibility to get from one shore to another nonetheless. We took the boat from Luss to Balmaha with a stop on the island of Inchcailloch (more on that soon) and had a really stunning view over the lake. Can I please go again?

  2. For some odd reason, these scenes remind me of what I saw on a boat in Costa Rica! I would absolutely love to make it Scotland some day (month!) soon!

  4. Your pictures are gorgeous!!! I think the water taxi is a great, affordable way to get around a body of water. The only thing missing is the tour guide and you could really do your own research if you wanted to.

    1. Your right about the tour guide, but when you're mainly in it to enjoy the nature, it's probably fine :) Thanks for stopping by!
