Loch Lomond is the third longest and deepest loch in Scotland and boasts a very unusual shape- narrow and ravine like in the north and with a very wide southern base. It is approximately 23 miles in length, 630 feet in depth and covers 27.5 square miles. In 1903 Murray and Pullars’ survey of Scottish lochs put Loch Lomond’s volume of water at 92,805 million cubic feet. The area around the loch is known for its wild and picturesque landscape and for hundreds of years it has been the inspiration for artists, poets and writers like Dorothy and William Wordsworth, John Keats and Robert Burns.
