Absolutely gorgeous, photos do not do it justice. One of the most tranquil places I've ever visited. A definite 'must' on your visit to Scotland.

Visited this wonderful gorgeous lake on my trip to Scotland. Stayed at the strathyre lodges and visited this remarkable location. Took loads of pictures but honestly no picture does it justice. Need to be there to feel the place! Highly recommend to visit.

Just an absolutely beautiful place to stop and admire the glorious scenery on a sunny autumn day. This is a sheltered , tranquil, freshwater loch in a narrow channel between Ben Vorlich ( 985 m) and Ben Ledi ( 879m) - so is very popular for supporting various water-sports including canoeing, kayaking, fishing , and wild swimming , as it’s one reputedly of the warmest lochs. It’s roughly 5 km long and 44metres deep, and is fed primarily by the river Balvaig. If you are planning on stopping off at the car-park it’s pay and display - so you’ll need to have change for the machine.

My friend and I travelled up from Glasgow today for a swim in Loch Lubnaig. My review is not about the Loch, area or our swim, but is about the miserable and extremely rude Man who was obviously part of either the Visitor Centre or Cafe that’s located at that spot.
He was picking litter off the beach area and I tried to ask him about swimming conditions in the Loch. It took three times of me saying excuse me before he even vaguely acknowledged me and then when I asked him, he just laughed and said (patronisingly) that it was one of the safest and most popular places to swim in Scotland, and that there was “nothing in there that will eat you”!! During this exchange he didn’t once make eye contact or attempt to be pleasant in any way. We were left thinking that if this is what real tourists are experiencing then what a shocking example he is of a Scotsman. He was wearing a kilt, some type of beret and a park top. Absolutely dreadful attitude and very much not appreciated by 2 nice, friendly Glaswegian women who were asking a simple question.
Needless to say that due to this we did not use the cafe for our lunch but decided to return into Callendar instead where we had a lovely lunch and experienced pleasant staff.

We took a picnic and found a table by the side of the loch. Idyllic views. Beautiful day so we swam in the loch too. Very special. Lovely spot for good swimmers as it gets deep very quick. Very refreshing

A wonderful place to stop on the road and rest. One of the most atmospheric Lochs. Tranquil place to visit. Great place, perfect for a break.

My family visited this place years ago. It’s in the middle of nowhere and you need a car to visit. We had our picnic and took over an hour from where we live to arrive. It was our aim in lockdown to go back. Being disabled, this was my one and. We arrived to find a lot of cars coming out. We went through the car park to find no spaces available. However the place we parked on our last visit was cornered off.
One man was kind enough to let us into the car park and moved the cone. Happy our aim was about to happen, someone came out and said we weren’t allowed to park the disabled bay.
“It’s a staff car park” we were told. This was confusing and I explained a gentleman moved the cone for us to park. “He doesn’t work here. The staff are parked and the car park there.” Pointing to the full car park which contradicted what she just said.
“The boss is on her lunch break and she’s wanting this car park pedestrianised.”
Rather than give us the moment to eat our lunch then move on so we knew next time, the kindness wasn’t available. To put it bluntly this beautiful tourist spot is now catering for LESS tourists which is baffling. What made it worse was seeing the two empty picnic tables available and not being used! Perhaps this is isn’t a tourist destination for us Scottish people to enjoy anymore. Lots of visitors turned away. Car park is for staff only and some tourists. Utterly baffled by the treatment

Worth a wee detour and walk alongside the Loch's beach. Took 2nd carpark where the take away drinks/ snacks Cabin and toilets are. £1 per hour to park. We thought it was worth it. Gets busy at lunchtime.

Insanely beautiful, peaceful picnic spot, clean bathrooms.

We accidentally came across Loch Lubnaig while driving in the area. What a lovely find!
