Highland Rainbow, Loch Lomond
Highland Rainbow, Loch Lomond
The topography north of the loch is very different from that in the south. The loch crosses the Highland Boundary Fault line and this marks a change from the Central Lowlands to the Scottish Highlands.
Loch Lomond (Loch Laomainn) :: NS3988

Loch Lomond (Scottish Gaelic: Loch Laomainn - 'Lake of the Elms) is 22 miles long and 5 miles wide at its widest point. Its area of 27 square miles gives it the distinction of being the largest freshwater lake in Great Britain (in the UK, it is only surpassed by Lough Neagh and Lough Erne in Northern Ireland).

The loch crosses the Highland Boundary Fault which is often considered the boundary between the lowlands of Central Scotland and the Scottish Highlands. Its southern shores lie 14 miles northwest of Glasgow. The Loch forms part of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park which was established in 2002.
