Shops & Dining


Nestled in the former boathouse at Trossachs Pier, Katrine Gifts is a definite port of call on your Loch Katrine experience. Browse our wide range of Scottish crafts, postcards and souvenirs while overlooking the shop’s inspiring loch view In addition to the special selection of books on the history of The Trossachs and the life of our steamship’s namesake, Sir Walter Scott, Katrine Gifts is also home to a range of local produce. We have our very own range of ales, brewed for us using traditional recipes at the Tryst Brewery based in Larbert, Central Scotland. We also sell fine whisky from the nearby Glengoyne Distillery, which is situated between Loch Katrine and the city of Glasgow.


Eat and relax by popping into the Pier Cafe. Situated on the Stronachlachar Pier, this is the perfect pit stop for ramblers and explorers. Enjoy panoramic views of the Loch and watch the historic steamship do its daily runs, all from your café seat.


Being at Loch Katrine is as much about relaxation as adventure, and there aren’t many spots with a view like our very own Brenachoile Restaurant. Grab some pre-exploration lunch or enjoy a much-deserved tea and cake pit stop, all overlooking the loch in all its glory. Brenachoile is named from the Gaelic for “above the trees”. Situated at the Trossachs Pier, the Brenachoile is nestled at the heart of Loch Katrine. There’s always a warm welcome and extensive array of locally sourced fresh food on offer for families, hikers and cyclists alike. From light lunches to afternoon tea, we are open daily, and we also cater for weddings and special events. Although up a level from the car park, the restaurant has a lift, which also provides wheelchair access.
