Inchlonaig Island - Loch Lomond
"The Island of Yew Trees"
This wonderful island is steeped in history with traces of man found here dating back to 5000BC.
Dark green yew trees are scattered across Inchlonaig. King Robert first planted these ancient trees in the fourteenth century, to supply bows for his archers at The Battle of Bannockburn.
In more recent times the island was used as a deer park and a stone built cottage, now used as a holiday home, once provided shelter for drunks and a certain cure from their alcoholism.
