Inchmurrin island in Loch Lomond is the largest freshwater island in the British Isles.
It has a colourful history. In the 7th century, it was the site of a 7th-century monastery. Over the years, it has been a deer park for the Scottish aristocracy and a mental asylum.
At the southern tip of the island, there are the ruins of a 14th century castle. Nobles have been murdered on the island and exiled to it. Others have taken refuge on Inchmurrin.
This hour long kayak experience is a great way to see both the island and Loch Lomond from a whole new perspective.
