Auchenheglish Lodges Around Loch Lomond

The jewel in the crown of Scotland and centre piece of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, Loch Lomond’s vast expanse of water, the largest inland waterway in Britain some 23miles long and up to 5 miles wide with its 34 islands, sandy beaches and rocky shores is both a fascinating and fantastic place to visit.

Its setting amidst the Scottish mountains is second to none. Positioned between the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park and Ben Lomond to the east, the Arrochar Alps to the west and the highland fault line crossing the loch through the islands of Inchmurrin, Creinch and Inchtavannach its superb scenery and natural beauty make Loch Lomond one of the most desirable holiday locations not only in Scotland but in the entire UK. We even have the island of Inchconnachan which is famous for its wallabies and is also home to the extremely rare capercaillie and ospreys.

The interesting and varied geology around the loch is immense with the lowlands at the southern tip of loch lomond transforming into the highlands some 2 miles to the north at the Highland Boundary fault line which is located just a few hundred yards from Arden.Totally dormant and inactive now it still portrays natural beauty and grandeur on a scale which is envied worldwide.
