Local information

  • Lying in Scotland's largest freshwater loch is Creinch Island. Formerly known as "Inchroin", the name is derived from the Gaelic meaning of “Tree island”. No fairer description exists.
  • The island is the third in a chain of four islands, the others being Inchcailloch, Torrinch and Inchmurrin. These are formed by the high points of the submerged ridge marking the line of the geological Highland fault line.
  • Loch Lomond Golf Club lies immediately to the Western mainland shoreline (the 5th hole is named after Creinch Island), with Loch Lomond National Nature Reserve to the East.
