The glittering waters of Loch Lomond—all 27 square miles of them—are on Glasgow’s doorstep less than 40 minutes away. Part of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park, the largest inland expanse of water in Great Britain naturally attracts all manner of watersport fanatics, including kayakers, windsurfers, jet-skiers, and anglers. It also draws throngs of trekkers, horseback riders, and mountain bikers with scores of mountain and waterfront trails. All this is great fun—but what if you’ve only a few hours to spend, and want to experience the loch without dirtying your shoes? A seaplane tour over the park, perhaps including a lunch stop at a five-star restaurant, might be the ticket.
