“Loch” is the Scottish word for “Lake.” We are assuming Colorado’s Loch Lomond is named after the more famous Loch Lomond in Scotland. Scotland’s Loch Lomond is much larger, measuring 24 miles in length and 600 feet deep. It is a popular national park and recreation area close to Glasgow. Both Colorado and Scotland lakes share a natural beauty against a backdrop of towering mountains.
