Cruises from Holy Loch
Holy Loch, in the Scottish county of Argyll, is a small Sea Loch (lake, firth or fjord), one of many small lochs that open to the 130 km major water way the Firth of Clyde. Holy Loch is about 1 km wide and 3 km long, depending on the tide. The loch is lined with small settlements which back onto the Highlands that rise from 400 to 700m. In the region are remains of old churches from as early as the 6th C; and by the 15th C Holy Loch received its name, and it became the spiritual home of the powerful Clan Campbell.
The remains of their Dunoon Castle can be seen at Dunoon, 3 km south of the Loch.
