Lomond  Scotland


In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Lomond like this:

Lomond, Loch, Dumbartonshire and Stirlingshire; is the largest loch in Scotland, being 21 miles long N. and S. from Ardlui pier to Balloch pier, and 5 miles broad near its southern extremity; it is almost entirely surrounded by ranges of lofty hills, culminating in Ben Lomond, which rises on the eastern side, and reaches an altitude of 3192 ft.; it is studded with numerous islands, is famed for its picturesque beauty, and is visited by large numbers of tourists. Loch Lomond receives Endrick Water and many smaller streams, and is drained by the Leven into the Clyde.
