Loch Lubnaig

Point Of Interest

Has not been rated.


Loch Lubnaig is a small but stunningly located stretch of freshwater nestling between two striking mountains, Ben Ledi and Benvane to the south-west and Ben Vorlich to the north-east. A birds eye view of the loch (or take look on a map), reveals how it came by its name, for Lùbnaig means crooked in Gaelic. Don't miss the scenic route viewpoint at the southern car park. The A84 runs along the eastern side of the loch, which makes access very easy, whether by vehicle or bicycle. If you prefer your cycling to be a little quieter, a section of the National Cycle Networks Route 7 runs along the west shore on the route of the former Callander and Oban Railway. The 9-mile trail, between Callander and Strathyre, is a scenic bike ride or a walk. Strathyre, to the north of Loch Lubnaig, is the starting point for plenty of walks, including a short Strathyre Circuit or there is a four-mile walk to the 2667ft summit of Beinn Each for the lochside at Ardchullarie More. Loch Lubnaig is also popular with paddlers, whether in kayaks or Canadian canoes and there are a couple of car parks for launching. Unusually for the Highlands, Loch Lubnaig runs north to south, and is more sheltered when winds are blowing along the usual west to eastwards lochs.
