SYHA Hostelling Scotland and Cruise Loch Lomond have worked together to develop a new scheduled waterbus service to Rowardennan Lodge Youth Hostel.

A newly-built jetty now sits at the foot of the Youth Hostel lawns.

On Friday 24th August we will celebrate the launch of this new, environmentally-friendly way of reaching Rowardennan Youth Hostel.

The event will include a short cruise on the Loch, lunch at Rowardennan Youth Hostel and an opportunity to explore all that’s on offer in this beautiful area: • Experience the Waterbus • Tour the Youth Hostel • Find out about land and water activities in the area • Explore the environment at the foot of Ben Lomond • Meet local businesses

The daily Waterbus services to Rowardennan from Inversnaid, Luss and Tarbet take bikes, so customers can hop on and off the Waterbus for some wonderful cycle rides along the banks of Loch Lomond.

This new service offers a multitude of options for exploring villages, walks and attractions.
