Stronachlachar, Gaelic for “the nose or point of the stonemason”, has been part of Loch Katrine’s rich history for over a century.
Nestled at the far end of the loch, this small hamlet is home to a series of mighty historical connections. Not more than an hour’s walk from Inversnaid, a checkpoint on the West Highland Way, this stunning destination has been welcoming the steamship Sir Walter Scott at its pier for decades.
Bike – Why not discover Loch Katrine and beyond by bike? Our very own Stronachlachar sailings allow cyclists and hikers to purchase a one hour single ticket from either Trossachs Pier or Stronachlachar, so why not book a bike from Katrine Wheelz before boarding and get exploring! Explore Rob Roy MacGregor history by cycling your way through some of Scotland’s most stunning locations.
