Loch Lomond is a freshwater loch in Scotland 24 miles long with an average depth of 37 meters (121 ft) and a maximum depth of 190 meters (620 ft). Of all the lakes in Great Britain, it is the largest loch by surface area and the second largest (after Loch Ness) by water volume.

Loch Lomond contains many islands, including Inchmurrin, the largest fresh water island in the British Isles, although the lake itself is smaller than many Irish loughs. Loch Lomond is a popular leisure destination and is site to many open water swims including the Great Scottish Swim.

Marathon Swimming

According to the British Long Distance Swimming Association (BLDSA), there has only been 46 successful attempts recorded by 38 solo swimmers across Loch Lomond since 1959.

Open Water Swimming

The Great Scottish Swim is held in Loch Lomond annually. A group swim will also be held in Loch Lomond at the 2014 Global Open Water Swimming Conference, the 2014 International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, and the 2014 WOWSA Awards.
