Fodor's Review

The ruined priory on the tiny island of Inchmahome, on the Lake of Menteith, is a lovely place for a picnic. It was a place of refuge in 1547 for the young Mary, Queen of Scots. Between April and September, a ferry takes passengers to the island, now owned by the National Trust for Scotland. To get here, take the A81 to the B8034. The ferry jetty is just beyond the Port of Menteith. If the boat is not there when you arrive, turn the board so that the white side faces the island. The boat will come and collect you.
