Loch Lubnaig (Loch Lùbnaig in Gaelic) is a small Loch near Callander in the Stirling council area, Scotland. It lies in the former county of Perthshire. It is part of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park.
It is around 5km long and has depths of up to 44.5 metres. The Loch nestles in the space between Ben Ledi and Ben Vorlich. Fed by the River Balvaig from the north and drained by the River Leny to the south, Loch Lubnaig offers fishing from the shore while canoes can be rented at the north end. Alternatively, two car parking areas on the east shore offer perfect, albeit sometimes busy, canoe launching points.
The route of the former Callander and Oban Railway runs along the west shore of the loch. This route has now been converted to a part of the National Cycle Network’s ‘Route 7’ allowing cyclists and walkers to travel the 9 miles between Callander and Strathyre.
The name Lubnaig is a Gaelic one, meaning crooked.

Parking will be at the McLaren Centre where swimmers will be bussed to Registration which will be held at The Cabin at Loch Lubnaig where toilet & changing facilities will be avaiable.
