When visiting, don't miss the opportunity of travelling on the ferry to the priory ruins on the island.

Ferry sits 12 people. Get there early as the last ferry is 4:15pm. The Priory is good. Read the signs and see the Abbey and ruins. Take a walk around the island. Last ferry leaves island at 5pm. Enjoy it!

A pleasant spot in lovely scenery, being Scotland's only lake. Unfortunately no ferry available so we couldn't visit the priory. Maybe next time!

You will need to rent a canoe from next to priory launch. I'd take the ferry that Historic Scotland supplies you. Parking is free next to Historic Scotland priory place...
